Book Box

Well good morning and good day to you all. I hope you are having a wonderful weekend so far!!!
Shanna here with a new creation to share with you that I created for Gina's Designs.
She has these awesome Book Boxes in the store in three different sizes to choose from:
I covered the book in some Graphic 45 papers and Petaloo flowers. 
The leafy clusters were first painted in gesso. Then they were painted with acrylic paint and given texture by using a heat gun to create bubbles.
Here you can see the texture perfectly.

Lost in Thought

Hi everyone! Melissa here with a layout for Gina's Designs.
I think these chipboard pieces fit beautifully with the vintage theme of the page.
To decorate the chipboard, I first prepped all the pieces with gesso. On the leaf pieces I put green and brown watercolors over green chalk ink. I then topped them off with Distress Crackle Paint.

For the pink pieces, I put crackle paint over pink chalk ink.  I rubbed in some brown chalk to define the cracks. The pink didn't show up much as much as I would have liked it to against the background, so I used pink Twinkling H20s to make the pieces darker. After that, I applied yellow, then purple H20s, letting each layer dry. I ended with another layer of crackle paint.

Thanks for looking!

Hello Friend 3D Card by Kim

Hi Friends, and happy Friday! Today I have a fun 3 dimensional card to share with you. I created this out of one of  Gina's Doors and a 3 x 3 inch Bagatelle Box.
 I used some of the Mirabelle paper to cover the door and the box, I just love the blue roses and the little bit of sparkle they have.  I attached the Bagatelle Box on top of the door, after I painted and covered it with the same paper.
After the painting and papering was complete, it was time for the fun part, embellishing!  I added some fun metal and resin pieces to the box along with my "hello friend" sentiment and a vintage doily and paper flowers. I framed the box with some of the Bella Mini Flourishes
The Door comes with several little styles of door knobs and plates.  I embossed one of the door plates and added a button with a blue rose on it for the knob.
I then added some various flowers from my stash and a lovely glittery butterfly.
 In these two photos you can see the lovely window that is in the door, I added lace behind it and a cool little lion head door knocker.   For the back of the door, I papered it and added a "to and from" stamp for my sentiment which I will add before I send it to my friend.
 I hope you have enjoyed my project today, these 3D cards are super fun to make! You can create any style as Gina has a great selection of door's in her shop.
Thanks for stopping by!

Vintage Book Stack by GDT Marla Rizzo

Hey everyone. Today I have made a beautiful vintage book stack to share with you. I used the small and medium book box that Gina carries in her store. It was so much fun to create!

I painted the boxes inside and out with cream paint then used Ladies Diary paper to cover them. I also used some vintage trim I had to keep with the vintage feel.

They can be opened up so you can store your little vintage treasures inside.
You can check out my YouTube video of this project HERE.

Gina also carries a large book box too. Check out her store to get a set to alter for yourself!  Have a great day!
