Memory Tray Shadowbox

 Design Team Project for Gina's Designs Lasercuts

Hello everyone today I would like to share with you this wonderful Memory Tray Shadowbox by Gina's Designs. I really love this shadowbox, it is so easy to put together, just click into place and it only took me a couple of minutes to do it.  I have used some of the Graphic 45 paper, The twelve Days of Christmas for this.

Here you can also see some of the other great goodies from Gina's, the Lamp Post is from the Christmas Shape Set and the Snowflake Shape Set you will see on the project worked out great. I have just covered them in my homemade texture paste to give them a snowy type of look.

I really love all the compartments in the shadowbox, it gives you lots of opportunity to embellish. Here you can see in this part one of the little chipboard snowflakes in the frame with a little white flower in the centre.

Here is part of the snowflake shape set, it is the border, I cut it down to fit on this section of the Shadowbox, and again used my texture paste, it made a great border for this part of the box and picked up on the Christmas/winter theme of the project.

Here you can see the Hanging clock from Gina's store, this is always one of my favorite pieces, it adds a great touch attached to the side of the shadowbox.  I have backed it with more of the G45 paper to show off the roman numerals on the clock.

And Finally here is a full view of the Shadowbox, its so great to have this little keepsake for this coming Christmas. You can certainly embellish this in so many ways, the compartments would be great for family photos too!
Thanks so much for taking a peek at my project today! I had a blast making this and please take a peek at Gina's store to find all these great items and more!

Paris Theme Shadowbox by Kim

Gina's Designs DT Project
Paris Shadowbox

Hello Everyone, Kim here, and today I want to share with you Gina's Paris Theme Shadowbox. I had so much fun with this piece! These themed shadowboxes are great because they are simple to put together and come with lots of fun embellishments to alter as well. These boxes would make great quick gifts to give for birthdays or any occasion.

You can see I have done this in a vintage style and kept the colours in neutral tones of white, cream, taupe and a bit of brown.

I have used the PaperHouse European Travel paper stack on this project, and also mixed it with some vintage music paper from my stash, they went well together and kept it in the vintage neutral tones I was after. Below here you can see I created a skirt for the dress form that comes with this kit, by accordion folding the music paper and attaching it with some vintage seam binding.

I also tore up some of the papers and music notes and distressed them to give an even more shabby vintage feel.

 I used a crackle medium on the outside of the shadowbox and on the top as well, then gave it a spray with Dark Chocolate Truffle from Lindy's Stamp Gang.

For the embellishments, I created this look by using the same spray from Lindys' and then using my Inka Gold I rubbed some of the Old Gold and Old Silver on top of the pieces, it gave them a lovely sheen.

 Here is another of the embellishments you get with the kit, a Fleur de Lis, with the same treatment as the other pieces, I attached a metal key from my stash with some Wild Orchid Craft flowers.

I hope you like my project, it was a blast making it! Thanks for stopping by the blog today, and don't forget to check out Gina's Shop for these themed shadowboxes they come in lots of different styles!
