Friday

Look! I actually used a stamp! *winks*


Altered-box-for-LESSology

Sometimes the challenges I come up with for LESSology are really set for myself...to "force" myself to use items that I own but have neglected for a really long time. Like my musical notes stamp. Which was buried in a sea of other "oooh I have to have it" stamps. [Can you relate?*LOL*]


I started with a Kikki K box [let's not count how many planners I actually have..*winks*] and a sheet of Fancy Pants patterned paper. I cut the paper  to size and ran it through my Xyron Creative Station before adhering it to my box cover. I did a little subtle stamping at the edges so that they blend in with the patterned paper design.


Then I decorated with my fave Maya Road embellishments at the bottom...


And also at the top. I recycled the plastic birthday token that came with the purchase of a cake.


Happy weekend friends!

Your post had me nodding in agreement. Yes, I have a three tier rolling cart of stuff I "had to have" and yet still remain in the cart of 'not used yet'. But I do eventually get to (mostly) everything and try to challenge myself to use items in new ways. That's why I love your blog because you show me so many beautiful possibilities. Thanks!

Such a gorgeous box! You have altered it so beautifully & totally agree with you on the stamps part. I have so many stamps which have not been inked for years. :P

So lovely, Yvonne! I've been good at purging the things I've let pile up lately, thank goodness, and finding new homes for them! Lovely project! I hope you have a great weekend!

What an awesome altered box! Love the paper you used, and your music note stamping along the edges is such a great touch. Really pulls together the collage-style look you've got going. I love the bird and deer and all the fun embellies you added. I really love how you combine elements, my friend!
