Scrapbook in a Box



My wonderfully talented friend Amy at A New Song had the directions for these Scrapbook in a Box on her blog. I had always wanted to try this but always thought it was too complicated














I used Raspberry Tart DSP, the base of the box is Old Olive (it should be Kiwi Kiss, but I didn't have any 12x12 in Kiwi Kiss and Old Olive was the closest I had). The top of the box is Pretty in Pink and used some of the xtra strips of the DSP around the edges. I wasn't sure what do for the top and was looking through my Big Shot goodies and decided on the Scallop Envelope filled with the Sweetest Stem embosslits in Pretty in Pink and Cameo Coral. I stamped Everything from the Always stamp set in Ruby Red on the Scallop Envelope and added a small button. Inside I used some more Sweetest Stem embosslits and the Simple Flower with a Clear Rhinestone Brad. I can't wait to fill it up with pictures!
