Happy Birthday Part II

The Hubby took a picture of the birthday card I made for him. So I thought I might as well post it too. It was a really last minute thing, created in the wee hours of the morning while my boys slept. I had bought a metal and leather frame in Takashimaya, Singapore for the Hubby and wanted to create something to put in it. Because the frame I had bought was not a shadow box frame (Shadow Box: a frame that is about 1 1/2" thick and allows space for 3-D embellishments) I was restricted to flat embellishments. Ribbons and stickers. But I could not resist using new epoxy alphabets I had bought from Shabby Chic. By Brenda Walton for K-ology (K&Company) they are really small and I think pretty versatile. A good buy for only $9.90. Just so you know, I went back to Shabby Chic and bought myself a second pack for keeping.



Materials: Textured Cardstock: Bazzill Basics Paper; Patterned Paper: Karen Foster; Ribbons: American Crafts; Photo Corners: Chatterbox; Sticker: Sticko by EK Success; Epoxy Alphabet: Brenda Walton for K-ology, K&Company; Date Stamp: Heidi Swapp for Advantus; Ink: Kaleidacolor by Tsukineko.

Wow thats a really special one of a kind birthday card. I'm hoping that Shabby Chic will bring in shadow boxes soon. I saw one some time ago at Innerspace...but they didnt have any when I went there just before Xmas. But it was a small shadow box.

But if I'm not mistaken, Alley Frame can do 3D framing. But prices depends on size and type of framing.

Oh...15% off Bazzil cardstock today at Shabby Chic!!! Am so there!

Yeah I saw those small ones at Innerspace too. I got myself a 12x12 maple coloured box from Laine's and just recently bought the Expresso coloured 8x8 from Pictures2Pages. I've ordered the matching Expresso 12x12 from P2P too. Am planning on decorating my scrapbook room once baby comes. Hee. But that also depends on the Hubby putting nails into the walls for me. I bought a whiteboard from Hua Ho like months ago and its still sitting on the floor in the plastic bag.

maybe i'll see you at Shabby Chic later. :-)
