I’ve had a wooden recipe box hanging around my space for years and it's been calling out to me to alter it. I used the fabulous Everyday Eclectic Limited Edition Scrapbook kit to cover and embellish the box. I even made a few recipe cards to go inside so I could start my Mom on her recipe writing journey!
The large green flower is made from some loopy trim that came in the kit. I tucked a shimmery turquoise pearl into the center to add a bit of bling. My favorite thing in the entire kit was the beaded leaf spray. I loved how I could bend it.
I made this card with the Limited Edition Everyday Eclectic Scrapbook and Crafting kit from Hydrangea Hippo. I'm giving it to my Mom with the recipe box as a "just because" gift. I adored the smaller patterns from the 6x6 paper pad and the white trim is really pretty. The roses were originally a golden color, but I misted them with brown glittery mist to give them some shimmer. A little stitching on my sewing machine finished the card and now I’m ready to send it to Mom.
Last but not least, I made a layout. I am not in too many photos with my kids because I’m usually behind the camera. I only wanted one decent photo out of this trip to Destin, Florida. It didn't happen though! The resulting photo cracks me up, and it's really indicative of our true lives. Well, at least ONE of us was happy on Summer Vacation. Right?
Again, all of my supplies came from the Everyday Eclectic Scrapbook and Crafting kit from Hydrangea Hippo. The golden doily is just so perfect and I loved the large, flat-backed pearl embellishment. It was wonderful for keeping my envelope closed and my journaling private.
