Love is Everything

ETA: the pillow box and tag dies are by Papertrey Ink. The lace die is by Creative Expressions.

Man, I wish I could share all of the fun things I’ve been creating lately! Sadly I can’t publish them because they are destined for the Dirty Dozen Design Team over at Splitcoaststampers. Just so you know I’ve not fallen off the face of the earth with so few posts in the last couple months! Well that and being sick most of January. Plus we are dealing with some family issues right now so I’m sorry but fixing the ads on here will have to wait a bit. I promise, I am aware and I’ll take care of it soon. I hope you will stay with me until then! If you find they block the main text and photo area please send me a screen shot at rebeccacell@gmail.com. TIA Now on to today’s project!…

Our theme at Crazy 4 Challenges this week is to make a project using food or dining as inspiration AND we had to use red. What? I really think that counts as two challenges don’t you? {Smile}. But hey, that’s not too hard is it? I  made a pillow box with a see through lace window. Cool right?
I bought a set of new dies; one cuts the little lacey window pieces and there are two separate borders. So you can cut it with edge die 1 or 2, neither or both! (I’ve added a photo below). If  you only use the main die you get little tiny windows. That’s how I cut the white base for the pillow box. Out of the red cardstock I cut all three together to get a double edged lace piece. I laid this over the little windows cut in the white piece and adhered it in place. On the back I adhered an acetate sheet to keep in my candies!

As a last touch, I added a double layer tag using PTI dies stamping them with SSS stamps. I added it to the box with some silver string.

I hope you find time to create with us this week! This sure is an easy one! When I really looked I had way more food themed products than I would ever have imagined so even if you don’t think you have any, take another look. This month’s SSS kit (I even have mine here in Canada!) has donuts and other sweets so if you subscribe or bought one you area golden! Let’s see what you come up with!
Enjoy, Rebecca

Hi! I’m a disabled SAHM of three wonderful boys. Married since 1997 to Tim. I love crafts, creating art, sewing, needlework, making jewelry, reading, watching movies and snuggling with my fat tabby cat, Jesse. My boys are all on the autism spectrum so it’s a chaotic but fun life. I live in a small town north-east of Toronto, Ontario, Canada. It’s in the middle of corn fields and horse farms while still feeling like a suburb.
