Christmas - La-La Land Crafts Inspiration Monday

Hey-hey dear everyone!

Monday, August 3 and we are ready to open another Inspiration week over the La-La Land Crafts blog. Our theme this time is "Christmas". 

I have put together a simple card, featuring an elf from the Jolly Elves Clear Stamp Set

The papers that I used are from the Little Merry Christmas Paper Pack which was released last year. I decided not to use a very thick foam adhesive and hope to be able to put this card in a regular postal envelope without a bubble wrap on the inside. With the most of my cards I do need bubble wrap in order to protect the flowers and other embellishments from being smashed :)

LLLC products used:

Skin: E04, E11, E00
Outfit: T6, E09, E07, R24
             G29, YG17, YG23
             C4, C2, C0

I wish you a great month of August! Thanks for stopping by and see you next Monday (or sonner....).

Graphic 45 - A Box with the "Children's Hour"

Hello dear visitors!

It's been a very long time since I shared an Alexandra-style box, embellished with the Graphic 45 papers, right?! It is going to change today :)

The box that I am about to share with you today was created for a reason - I needed to put somewhere my growing collection of needles. I have been storing them in my sewing drawer, but they were scattered all over and I couldn't see what exactly I had, so this is how the box was born. I also had a few loose sheets of the Graphic 45 "Children's Hour" collection, that I wanted to use and really did not know for what. So it just all came together nicely and I was able both to create a useful box and to use the leftover papers. 

Here are some close-up pics of the fussy cut elements on the lid:

The lid by the way is magnetic, so it's very easy to open and close the box. 

As you might have already noticed, there are 3 frames on the inside of the lid. I haven't decided yet, if I wanted to put pictures in there, or maybe created a list of what's in each compartment. 

I enjoyed cutting out the tiniest elements for those floral clusters! 

Forgot to mention, that the frame on the lid can also house either a picture, or a list of the contents' of the box, or actually stay as is :)

The dimensions of the box are 9.5 (L) X 5.5" (W) X 3 1/4" (D).

That's all from me for today! I hope you like my share.
