Madam Boutique

Thought I'd better drop in and share my projects for Madame Boutique...

This is a gorgeous vintage range, what works perfectly for a lot of projects.

Being such a heritage range, I really couldn't resist scrapbooking a photo of my Grandmother.
And here are some details...

I've teamed the papers with the new diecut Collectables and then added some of the roses and crochet flowers. Really Kaisercraft produce everything you could possibly want to create a layout like this!

My other project is a heritage box. This was an old tea box a friend sent me quite a while ago. I've created mini albums to go in the box that will hold details of dh's and my family trees as a permanent record for the kids.

Now those of you who went to Hyden, might have seen me playing with this box, trying to get a crackle finish. Well, let me just say the crackle finish just would not work for me... and neither did the paint!
So as a solution, I covered the sides with texture paste so I had a lovely textured finish, and added vine detail to the corners. Truely I love the way it turned out.

The albums have all been made of chipboard, and the divider pages will be printed out on the computer so I can add them to the book.

It's been a busy month for me this month, so hopefully I will be back soon with a few more shares and hopefully a tutorial!
Have a great weekend...
