Trinket Box

Eeek - 2 days running! I must have a fever.

So here is my second project with the Trinket box dies.

This was so much fun and is based entirely on little boxes I've seen on Pinterest and various blogs - so I can't give any particular credit. But these dies lent themselves to this design.

The coordinating stamps were screaming out to be heat embossed in a coordinating colour and the dies cut so beautifully!

As you open up the boxes inside are revealed

Each box also decorated with the detailed dies

And turn it around - it's a total work of art!

Now - Much as I love blogging and sharing with you - I also hate to sacrifice precious crafting time - so there's no frequency to my posts, that means if you don't want to miss out on what I'm sharing, but you don't want to keep checking in when there's nothing new... you can subscribe to the blog - or like my KnallCrafting Facebook page - where I always share my latest posts.

Ta Ta for now!

Stylish Tonic Studio's Desk Tidy

Oooh - Get me, blogging twice in a month. I must be getting back in my stride!

It hasn't been hard finding my crafting Mojo lately as I have been subscribing to Tonic Studio's Monthly Craft Kits - You can subscribe here... Tonic Craft Kit

Every month I receive a selection of Craft Perfect paper and card stock, an assortment of Nuvo products, an amazing set of dies and coordinating stamp set. This month the dies made up a super trinket box and here is something I created!

It is so versatile and can be used for jewelry, makeup, craft supplies and embellishments... the options are endless!

It has 12 drawers and they are configured to increase the stability of the design to make it sturdy! The drawers, drawer sleeves and the stunning detailing are all part of the kit! You can see how beautifully the dies cut!

Each layer of drawers, and the boxes on top, are first adhered to a 5 x 5" piece of black card which also helps reinforce the structure as well as holding everything together. The boxes on top are just simple boxes that I designed and I have added a coordinating lime green liner for extra support and to give the whole thing a quality look and feel.

I have another surprise from Craft Kit 8 to show you - it may even be tomorrow! So do pop back!

Mother's Day - Just the Tonic

Hi there,

I hope you all treated your Mums yesterday... or were treated by your children if you have them.

I really wanted to knock the ball out of the park this year and the Tonic Memory Book dies really enabled me to do this.

I used lots of embellishments and also some dies from Subscription Kit #7

Of course a little Nuvo got included and I made the box to hold it.

Here are a few pictures!
