I cannot believe it's the end of the first week of 2012 already. We have been really busy in the shop January sale, there are some really great deals to be had in the gifts, craft and food.
A stormy week outside but we have been nice and snug inside....creating, mind you first of all I had to clear the tables from Christmas!! So, this is how it went...
Three beautiful sheets of Pion paperstock, two of Eternal Moments/Forget-me-not and one of Violet/A Fairytale of Spring to create three very different projects.
1. A Winter Wedding/A Ruby Wedding
This consists of a card and a box.
 I covered the base and decorated with satin ribbon, a buckle and creater a swinter spray.
I then covered the front of the card with the reverse of the paper. I cut my photo out with a Spellbinders die and edged with want2scrap bling. My frame for the photo I used a piece of my paper with the least design on and then, afterripping distressed the edges with Distress Ink "vintage photo" . I curled the edges with a cocktail stick withpva glue on it so as to stiffen the rolls.
At the top of the front I added some lace.a bit more glitter and bling and some little flowers cut out of my paper.

To finish I took one of our Christmas boxes and recovered and decorated it.
And there we go a lovely "winter wedding" or "ruby wedding" card and box
I will post another project another day.
