Scrapbooking Supplies R Us

Hi everyone! I survived the long drive across Nevada to Utah and made it through two days of the Making Memories warehouse sale.  I came back to a great honor. Holly, the Design Team leader with Scrapbooking Supplies R Us, had chosen me to be the guest designer for the month of May. I picked up The Sampler May kit yesterday afternoon and am excited to share with you the first project I made with the kit.

When I saw the gorgeous TPC Studio Boho Blooms Floral Border paper and sticker sheet, I knew it screamed canvas shadow box. I thought about it as I feel asleep last night. The paper paired with the wonderful Orchestra paper from 7gypies was screaming to be used. The inside of the box is where I used the Coredinations cardstock. I sanded it to bring down the yellow tone a bit and then spritzed it with Pineapple Glimmer Mist.  Oh and I adored the trim included in the kit where I used a bit on the outside scalloped frame.
I added the Prima flowers (which were spritzed with Pearl Glimmer Mist) and placed the vintage buttons from the kit as the center. I almost wanted to hoard versus use the buttons!

It really is difficult to do a shadow box justice in a photograph. So if you have some time next week, (assuming you live in the area), please do stop by the Memories Live On store in Cupertino to have a peek at my work in person and shop all the wonderful goodies that are constantly coming into the store.
