I decided to do 3 projects this month : a box, a card & a 12x12 layout... I hope they will inspire you!
My lil Halloween treat box :
I got these boxes at The Dollar Tree - White Wedding Favor Boxes, 12-ct. Packs - $1 (you can order them online but you got to buy a case for $36 (that's 432 boxes these are great for gatherings etc))
So I ran some Laughing Lola paper through my Fiskers paper crimper..
I also used it on my card... I love this tool!!!
Here are my results:
* Front *
* Back *
My Thank You card:
I just got the #M1029 - A True Thank You acrylix stamp from CTMH and wanted to try it out.... And I loved how the crimper worked on my Halloween box, so I used Laughing Lola gold for my base and crimped it,
Then I used different colors of our exclusive inks and stamped in a light pattern before I stamped the final Thank you in black.
To finish it off I sponged around the edges with the Gypsy Ink
My last project a 12x12 layout - Something Magical
I cut around part of the paper to make interesting borders on the page, then I added a strip of black and a strip of gold and added some SPARKLES!!
I got my crimper out again, and crimped gold and black paper, and added a leather magical embellishment I got from Hobby Lobby... :)
Laughing Lola is my favorite paper pack... I just love all the colors and style of these papers...
