Crafty Secrets Linky party today....

Today is a really fun day because it's my first post up for Crafty Secrets Design Team.
Whoo Hoo i am so excited to be picked for this team :)
I was not much of a digital designer since i worked at the store and could buy everything
i ever wanted but life changes that and i am totally sold on these fun images.  For all
of you from my blog they have both stamps, paper and images to use so the really
fun part is you can buy them or print out as many as you think you might need.  And
they are such amazing quality.  That is the part that really sold me :)

But to share a little i have a neat project that i made for a friend to give for Mother's
Day and it has space for a gift card and maybe a neat piece of jewelry in the top.

For my project i used the Pastel Paper Designs Pad filled with these amazing
crackle papers.  I first sanded my little box and then put a couple of coats of ivory
chalk paint on it sanding between each of them.  The i measured the sides and
cut the paper so that a small edge would show on it.  And of course i sanded
that too just to make it a little more shabby chic.

The top lily of the valley card comes from a beautiful set called Creative Scraps-
Little Blessings. And of course you can see below that i had to add lots of
flowers and a few Spellbinders dies in the mix.  It' was really fun and i can't
wait to fill it with special things and give it to my friend and surprise her.

Below is just a quick shot of the inside lid and the drawer.  For those i sand each part
and painted them too and then cut the rose papers in the set to line each of them.

Here is a list of supplies for my card and box:
*Pastel Paper Designs Pad
*Creative Scraps- Little Blessings
Wooden Drawer Box- Michaels
1/4 inch pink satin ribbon
Americana Chalk paint in ivory
Ivory Cardstock (card)
Spellbinders Dies: Blooms One, Lucious Labels One,
