This month at the Storyboard Kits crop night, the girls wanted to create an off the page item for Mother's Day...and here's what I came up with. I mentioned to Ange at Scrapware that I wanted to create a shadow box where the inside opening was 4x4"...perfect for a standard sized photo, with a bit trimmed off the sides. Ange, being the awesome chipboard designer and cutter she is, resized the mini bracket shadow box that is currently available for sale (KT62), and sent them up to me! Love that woman.
The front of the shadow box measures 7"x7" from tip to tip. The kit that I put together for the night included the Scrapware bracket shadow box, Scrapware mini foliage and eight 6"x6" papers from Crate Paper. I only gave the girls instructions on how to construct the box, and the design on top was purely up to them. As you can see, I've kept the front quite clean in design to let the patterns from Crate Paper's "Portrait" collection shine. The colours are gorgeous and I love the nanna prints...lovely roses and damasks...a bit like old wallpaper.
Now for the giveaway part...
