It is a Maya Road Box and the top lifts off to reveal a mini album inside. The outside is pretty much done, but she is still working on the mini. She combined paper from a new company that we found, Upsy Daisy Designs from Victoria BC in Canada. The paper line is Walk in the Park and it is PERFECT for a house book, fall photos, family pics, etc.
Umm-are you thinking, hey is that Puget Sound in the background. Heck yeah! Darcie, Kathy and I spent last weekend on Vashon Island scrapbooking and recharging our batteries (code for eating lots of chocolate and good food with other scrapbooking friends) Joy had to miss our fun weekend, but we are hoping she can join us next time. If you want to see what else Darcie worked on-the most adorable Halloween banner to hang at her real job workplace, click here to see it in her 2 Peas Gallery.
She is also using some super cute rub ons by October Afternoon for great captions, sayings, etc for the pages, Maya Road chipboard trees and lots of other fun goodies. Did I mention that Upsy Daisy Designs has corduroy covered brads-they are so cool-and yep we're totally using them for this project.
Anyway, during this class you will be decorating the outside of your box and then working on the mini album too. Darcie is truly a paper artist, she loves to manipulate the paper to create shingles, windows, trees, etc. We'll post more photos when the mini is done. Enjoy what Darcie has finished so far! The house is 8" x 6.5" x 5", the Chipboard book measures 4.75" x 4.75".
