Memo Board by Kathi and Composition Box by Melissa

Hello Friends!  Today we have two projects to share, first is another of our August cross promotional projects with Kitty's Scrap Post, and then we're also sharing another version of our Composition Box.

First up today is Kathi who has done an amazing job of combining the paper kit with our chipboard shapes.

Welcome, and thanks for joining me today.  I have decorated one of our memo boards using the French Seamstress digital paper kit from Kitty's Scrap Post along with the vintage seamstress shape set from Gina's Designs.

Full View

I covered the dressforms with the French Seamstress paper, added antique buttons to one 
of the spools, then added the spools to the pocket envelope.  I added a metal sewing 
machine to the shelf, and spools of thread, then embellished with  flowers.

I added a decorative dress form to the shelf. and also cut the wire dress form out of the paper 
line & placed it behind the pincushion by cutting around the pincushion & inserting it. 
Lace & trim was added to the top & bottom of the memo board. 
Two bottle caps were placed above the dressforms.

Next up is Melissa with her take on our Composition Box.  Melissa chose the number "25" and created a gorgeous Home Decor item to enjoy this Holiday season.

Hi everyone! Melissa here with my version of our composition box.  This heavy chipboard kit comes with 3 smaller boxes to assemble and place within (or on top of) the large box, a wooden key, and a number of your choice.  Create your own project in any theme you'd like, or choose a number to correlate with a special year or a special day.  Anything goes!  

To get the shiny gold effect I wanted on the key, I prepped it with gesso, then applied texture paste.  I then painted on some rub n buff, and some Pilot gold ink.  I also rubbed on some gold mica powder, applied glossy accents, then finished it off with some gold leaf in some areas.

Thanks for looking!
