Picnic Basket with Mini album inside

Hi! in my late night searches for inspiration I came across the cutest little picture of a picnic box and I got the inspiration to create one for myself with a mini album to fit inside using the new My Mind's Eye "Follow your Heart " collections.  I want to share with you the link where I found this inspiration, just note that the site in not in English so when I tried to follow the tutorial with the conversions it just didn't convert properly so I created my own dimensions and spin on it and adding a mini album to go inside
Here are the detailed pictures and you will find all the products used in this project at the end of the photo gallery.

Shabby Chic Kleenex Box Tutorial

I created these two boxes using the dollar bin kleenex boxes from Michaels.  All I did is pull them apart and traced them onto a thicker type patterned paper.  I made this kleenex box so that it could sit on my desk so of course I thought it's only natural to add some Iamroses.  I will post the links to the flowers used below the photos.  Check out the video for details instructions on how to create this box.

New Echo Park "This and That Graceful" collection project

Wow!!! I am back from CHA and let me tell you! it has taken me up until now to recover! I keep calling it the CHA hangover LoL!.  What an amazing experience it was to be able to see the latest and greatest in the crafting industry.  I got to meet some new extraordinary people, made new friends and re-connected with some old faces.
Now it's no surprise to most of you that I have been a gigantic Echo Park fan since right from the get go so when I stopped by the Echo Park booth to see what was new, WOW!!! came to mind and I was instantly in love with two of their amazing collections : "This and That Graceful" and "This and That Charming".
I was given the opportunity to take the "This and That Graceful" collection home and design with it so I wanted to share what I created with this amazing collection.  All supplies used will be below the projects.


Thank you so much for stopping by! and you know I just love to hear your comments, so go ahead and let me know what you think!
