Tri-fold Shadow Box

Wow its been ages since I last blogged. Not to say that I've not been scrapping as I have but just have not had time to post anything. So many things have happened in the last couple of weeks and my scrapbooking stash has grown tremendously to the point where all my new supplies are being stored in a cardboard box, underneath my scrapping table and all over Ty's table and stools. I've just about given up on any attempts at organisation and am seriously considering clearing out my shelves by boxing up by idea books and magazines (most of which are still unread).

Anyhow, here's what I've been working on..... my 6x6 tri-fold shadowbox frame which is now sitting in my cubicle as a reminder that there is more to life than work.

Materials:- Textured Cardstock: Bazzil Basics; Patterned Paper: Deja Views; Ribbon: American Crafts; Ink: Cat's Eye Chalk; Brad: Queen & Co; Epoxy Stickers: K & Co; Metal Tab: Making Memories.

Materials:- Textured Cardstock: Bazzil Basics; Patterned Paper and Die-cuts: Deja Views; Ink: Cat's Eye Chalk.

Working with the 6x6 size was quick and easy. Sometimes its nice to get away from 12x12s and just finish a LO fast. Plus 3D popping is fun. I don't normally like to pop things up on a page as I feel they will get squashed once inserted into an album but creating a LO for a shadowbox was liberating.

Materials:- Patterned Paper: Deja Views; Ribbon: American Crafts; Photo Corners: Heidi Swapp for Advantus; Vellum Quote: DCWV; Rub-on: MAMBI.

I love the quote and think its quite apt for the stage that Jay is in right now (at 3 and half months) cos when he's awake, he insists on being carried everywhere and woe befalls the person who leaves him unattended for even a few seconds cos his yells surely does move mountains. Hee.
