So I was supposed to get this post published this morning but last night I just didn't have anything left in me. I am now feeling the effects of my promotion, getting clients and my team losing a couple of people. I'd had enough!
I have been lucky enough to have been put on a team that is absolutely amazing! Kelleigh Ratzlaff Designs. You know how much I love digital scrapbooking and my Silhouette Portrait and playing with svgs. Well, I get to put it all together. I can create fun scrapbook pages and I can play with cut files for some pretty fantastic hybrid art.
I have also been working on an idea for a stress kit. A very dear friend of mine is under a lot of stress so I felt the need to put together a care package for her. Although I don't have everything photographed to show you what I did, I do want to share with you how I used Kelleigh's amazing digital papers and cut file. First let me show you the ensemble....
All my projects feature digi papers from the Count the Ways digital paper pack.
I'll tell you about each project individually. Up first is an svg file by Kelleigh, it's a soap box.
I printed out one of the textured solid papers and then put it on my cutting mat and cut out the box. I then printed out the patterned paper and only cut lid flap to layer over the base. I did embellish the box with a border die from SNSS and flower die by Spellbinders.
Apparently I forgot to photograph the little box in front. Again, printing the digi papers by Kelleigh, I used a cut file by Lori Whitlock. And then printed another couple of sheets to make the tea box, which I did on my own following the instructions of many You Tube tutorials.
The label is an svg cut that found on the Silhouette Online store and the font is one that is already on my computer.
For the top I decorated it with die cuts by MFT (rose, flourish and doily) and the lace flower I made.
So as you can see, Kelleigh's papers really helped me to create a lovely set. Now, why is it a stress box. Inside the box is a yarn and a crochet pattern book, a jar of homemade lavender/almond oil bath salts, the tea box holds chamomile tea and the two boxes hold chocolates. I found a beautiful box at Michaels which sort of matches, but is just as serene with a lovely quote from the Bible about patience on it. It's going to be perfect.
Thank you for stopping by and I hope that I've inspired you.
