Paris in Pink


Well I'm back to my old favourites now with a pretty little project for you!

Yesterday we went into Mansfield (yep, we took a trip out in the thunder and lightning - there were hardly any people about so it was great!) and there's a shop that we LOVE to visit, just because it has really cute alterable products.

This is a Jewelry box that I picked up for £3.99 and it originally had a photo-frame aperture in the top (heart shaped) - I've covered it over with some special Paris papers that I've designed (these will be available with the new stamp releases sometime this week!) and then I've treated the top frame like a card front.

I've used our BRAND NEW upcoming stamp sets for this box - this includes the following:

Perfume stamp set (5 stamps!!) - £3.00

Paris (4 stamps - original size of the Eiffel Tower is 12cm tall!) - £3.50

Flower Shapes (Set 2) - £3.00 (I've used this for leaves!)

Flower Shapes (Set 3) - £3.00

The only ink pad colour I've used is Gathered Twigs and then I've used some gorgeous ribbons, pearls & what-not from our online store!

Here are a few more pictures for you:

There's plenty of glitter on the Eiffel Tower (which is damask patterned!!!), dotted on the flower petals & leaves, on the postage stamp and the Fleur-De-Lis (which makes a gorgeous backing paper by the way!).

The Made With Love sentiment comes with some shell-shaped patchwork stamps that will be released soon too:

Finally, here are the outside edges & the inside of the box - I've just used some of the Paris papers I have designed (releasing along with the stamps) and then I've just cut out the Fleur-De-Lis & Postage Stamp with an edge then distressed with Gathered Twigs.

I'm SO pleased with the results here & I hope you like it too!

    This is just incredible! I love it,it is stunningly beautiful. The "softness" of it is so delicate and dreamy. The flowers are really pretty and set it off so well.
