Belles 'nd Whistles- Project

Okay, I'm sorry for leaving you for a couple of days. No I wasn't away, and my mojo was still with me (thank God!) :)) Look what I was up to!!

In fact I was working on this project I had started when I was on hoidays. These last two days I was working to finish it. I wanted to make this idea I had in mind for a couple of months now; in fact since I saw this project first on the ubber talented Camilla's blog.I don't think anyone has never visited Camilla.. if you just landed.. please do go and see her creations.. you're in for a treat that will last for long I tell you! :)

She had made this lovely savingbox,and I really wanted one for myself :) I enlarged it a bit, and made it a jewellery box instead.. not for me really.. for one of my girls! :) But I cased Camilla's ideas, and used the gorgeous Belles 'nd Whistles stamps. Thank you Camilla for your permission to blog about it :)

Top view of the box

It took me quite some time, and some stash as well! lol But I'm happy with how it turned out :)

The "drawers", made of three large empty match boxes stacked on top of each other :)

I will be showing you quite some pictures (sorry if some of them are not so sharp). It was already evening when I took the photos, so I tried to capture as much light as I could from my room.. but I think my hand was not very steady! :)

Close up of Lemonade Anyone?

Enjoy the photos, and I hope these fantstic stamps designed by Elisabeth Bell will inspire you to think out of the box, and make someone happy by using your talent and create something out of your heart. If you still haven't got these lovely babes.. what are you waiting for? You can get them here.

List of materials I used:

Stamps: Lemonade Anyone? and Miss Poppy
Studio G for sentiment
Paper: Papermania BlueBerry Hill
Basic Grey Brads pearls and rhinestones, Prima flowers, Flower centres (ovals and floral): All from Roses on Paper
Ribbon, hearts rhinestones, keys charms,papermania flowers: from stash
Tools: Oval nesties, MS doily lace punch, MS branch punch
Colouring: copic sketch markers

Thanks for looking
