Fairy Shadow Box

I've been playing with this fairy shadow box for awhile.  I am not really a fairy person but these papers were singing to me at the store and I just couldn't resist.  I am very much in love with the idea of the 3-D scrapbook page in a shadow box.  At this rate I will soon have to trade in the dog to make room for more shadow boxes in the house.

A Pear of Friends...

My Little Shoe Box has a contest running for layouts and cards using their Farmer's Market line.  You can read about the contest here if you are interested in it. At first I wasn't sure I had any pictures to go with the paper.  No gardening or farm pictures.  But the paper was too cute to pass up on so I picked a few sheets at Felicia's Scrapbooks and brought them home.  I quickly found inspiration when I looked at some pictures of my daughter and (as she puts it) her BFF.  This is the layout I ended up with.

AccuCut Craft Contest Entry

I created this little birthday album for the AccuCut Grande Mark Challenge.  Today is the deadline (I am of course right at the deadline!) to enter for a chance to win some fun prizes!


To create the multiple layers I placed my chipboard and paper over just the tiers I wanted to cut.  The first page is just the bottom tier, the second page is the second tier and then the entire cake.  I also cut another paper pattern for the "frosting" and then fancy cut it out and finished with stickles.  If you're in the Austin area (or just passing through) Felicia's Scrapbooks has all the dies I used and the papers. 

Paper: Bazzill (dotted Swiss--Irish Eyes, light aqua) Jillibean Soup (Spotted Owl Soup--Silly Owls and Dancing Hats) Chippboard
Dies: Accucut (cake-tiered, banners #4)
Other: Unknown (yellow baker's twine) Ranger (yellow Stickles) May Arts (wired pom poms)
