Hello all, Leonie here, I just wanted to share the DT projects I have completed for Pages 2 Scrap with my August kit. This kit featured the versatile Bo Bunny Vintage Market collection papers and some other awesome goodies!
The first thing I made was this little box - I'm planning to use this little box to store all the silly notes my husband and I leave each other on an antique tin receipt hook we have in our bedroom. I have kept it quite simple so the lovely paper can take pride of place and not be overwhelmed by too much embellishment. The 7Gypsies brass handle has been on my list to use for a while and I figured it would match really well with the 'Dot' paper and dark blue Bazzil from my DT kit.
I used the 7Gypsies chipboard tag elements from my kit around the base of the box - I really like the scalloped edging and the fleur de lys motifs, so I inked them with Versacolour ink in Lagoon Blue and used a bit of Vintage Photo Tim Holtz distress stain, and a bit more Neptune Versacolour ink on the edges. I was going for a bit of a verdigris metal effect.
The beaded trim around the edge of the box was something I found in my sewing stash left over from making Christmas ornaments a while back. You could use any pretty ribbon or trim to finish off the edge; Pages 2 Scrap have a fantastic selection.
Next, I tried something a bit different to give the background of this layout a tattered, aged feel - I used an old dress pattern and some PVA glue to create an textured base, and mounted my photo on a vintage book page and little kraft envelope. I cut out a few of the labels from the Vintage Labels paper, and wrapped some rough gardening twine around the page a few times. The beautiful Vandoros organza ribbon from my kit added a little bit of sparkle to the page - I fixed it with some Tim Holtz trinket pins and added a little bit of vintage lace.
The key is another of the 7Gypsies chipboard elements - this time I covered it in washi tape for a pop of teal colour. The little 'family' word in the bottom corner was part of the edge strip saved from a sheet of Kaisercraft Tasty Treats paper, and the sweet little camera charm is also from the Bo Bunny Vintage Market collection.
I used a little more of the sparkly Vandoros organza ribbon to add a bit of warmth, and some other blue satin ribbons. The title is made up of a long straight piece from the 7Gypsies cardstock elements, covered in blue washi tape, plus some American Crafts thickers and a blue diecut Noteworthy shape from Bo Bunny.
I really enjoyed putting these projects together and hope they inspire you to create something lovely with the Bo Bunny Vintage Market collection and other goodies available from Pages 2 Scrap!
