A Visit From My Friend and Some Shabby Chic Boxes

13 May

Hello!  Last weekend my friend Tmika…Scrapdaworld on YouTube…came to visit.  It was a great weekend of shopping, crafting, and just hanging out!  Here we are before we hit the stores…

Tmika and Audrey

Of course Tmika came bearing gifts.  She made some awesome handmade embellishments and brought me animal print papers to craft with since I love animal prints!  But she also made and brought me what became our theme of the weekend…a shabby chic box and it is lovely…

Dresser Box – The Cutting Cafe Design Team Project

10 Jul
Dresser Box

Dresser Box

This week for The Cutting Cafe, the theme was boxes!  We had a choice of three files to work with, the Card Organizer  Box, the Copic Box, and the Dresser Box which I used.  This file was so fun.  I decided to try giving it a masculine feel but I am going to make another one and really girlie it up!  Here are a couple more views…

I used a specialty paper (really it is plastic) from Michaels to cover the box and drawers.  The knobs are from balsa boxes from Michaels.  I actually made the little lamp from a file from SVG Files.  I just shrunk it down to 30% of the original size and that worked perfectly!  The mirror is Tim Holtz’s mirror paper.  It works like a charm.

Visit The Cutting Cafe Blog to see the rest of the projects from the design team this week.  Leave a comment and be eligible to win three files of your choice in next week’s drawing.  The video is  below…
