Jaw Dropping Display Box

Hi friends!  Today is a special day for me because my new QUINTESSENTIAL CONSERVATORY release has come out!

In this tutorial I am going to demonstrate how you can use the main largest die set (the Quintessential Conservatory die set) along with some additions to create a jaw dropping display box for small collectible items (figurines, succulents or anything that fits inside the box). I placed my favorite Sylvanian Families / Calico Critters toys inside.

The box measures 8'' x 8'' x 3''. All the add-on dies can be used on their own or with the main building shape. Watch the video for more info!

Also, join me live at CraftWorld at 1 p.m. UK time on 22 May - there will be a new release overview as well as a GIVEAWAY!

Amazing Foiling Effects on Patterned Paper

If you are following me you already know how much I'm blown away with Graphic45 Ocean Blue collection (watch the supply list below!).

 I normally combine these papers with intricate dies but sometimes papers alone are enough to make a beautiful card. This is exactly what I planned to do this time but of course, I couldn't help adding some details to bring something of my own into these gorgeous papers. So I went with various foiled details - hot foiling, mirror cardstock as well as some shiny sequins. To me all this gold adds some sunshine warmth to cool blue shades and it feels so much like summer!

Gallery Wall Layout

Hi paper crafters, my project for today is going to be a gallery wall layout. 

Normally when we are creating a scrapbook layout according to the theme, style and colors of our photos. But this one is the opposite - we are creating a room with a gallery wall and then we can add absolutely any pictures inside the frames. I used photos of flowers from my garden. 

I also have a bonus project for you - a fireplace shaped card made with the same supplies as the layout. 

By the way, both these project were published in Papercraft Essentials magazine #187. I have added it to the supply list in case you would want to check it out!

Thanks for visiting today and have a great day!
