February Giveaway Winner and getting creative with shadow boxes

Candy Box Crafts Shadow Box and Molly Blooms Stamps

A huge thanks to all who left a comment on our February Giveaway post .  I had a great time reading them all. chose number 178 as our lucky winner this month and the lucky lady who left comment no 178 was SusieQ3.  Congratulations Susie.  Please would you mail your address to me at and I'll get your goodies in the post to you.  

Its been a while since I've got out my Copics and Molly Blooms stamps but had a really chillaxing time earlier this week getting creative molly blooms style with one of the Candy Box Crafts shadow boxes.  I used the 6 1/2" one to showcase this country scene of Molly on a picnic.  Once I'd chosen the papers I wanted to use, and the colours for the images all I had to do was a bit of colouring in. I'd forgotten how time flies when your colouring and how long it takes. There's over 35 elements in the picture some large and some tiny weeny like the cherries and strawbs!  I started layering from the back of the box and  used small chipboard squares stuck together in stacks to support each of the pieces, increasing the number used in each stack as I built up the scene.   It was a great project to work on and one that would make a pretty picture for a little girls bedroom.  

Here's what the box looked like before I started and some close ups of my finished one too:

Launching the File Folder......

Hi everyone, it's Friday and launch day for our latest project - the File Folder.  I had loads of fun making the samples altered here in two gorgeous paper collections to give two totally different looks to the same File Folder Cover Set.  .   Measuring 10" x 7 1/4 x 2" the sturdy File Folder Cover set is laser cut from 3mm MDF, has a magnetic closure inset into the covers, opens top reveal the option to add a noticeboard section on the inside cover and a ring binder that holds four layered pages. These can be made with or without pockets and pull out photo mats.  I've added a tuck spot option for the pages too. These allow you to slot pictures onto the pages without sticking them down. That way you can always see the beautiful papers you've chosen to decorate your pages in, like  like the Mad Hatter below.  I added black clips into the samples too to hold more pics and ephemera on the pages.   and right in the centre there's an acetate waterfall se
