Shadow Box creations

Hello everyone, Crece here with you today to share a few things I have created since my last post.
Todays post features a couple of the Shadow boxes I created for the Scrapmatts stand for the Scrapbook Expo in Brisbane - I was also lucky enough to help the team out over the weekend on the stand. I got to meet so many wonderful people.

Shadow Box Calendar

I thought it would be an awesome idea to turn this shadow box into a calendar. It was pretty easy to do, by attaching wire to the frame i was able to use tiny pegs to attach the printed calendar (which can also be updated every year)

now for the close ups...

 I used paper to cover the front of the shadow box.

i heat embossed these cogs with Ultra thick embossing powder in the colours, gold, platinum and bronze.
I also added one of the clock charms from scrapmatts.

I used these products to create this shadow box...

Baby Keepsake Box

When i saw the design of this shadow box I knew exactly what i wanted to do with it...create a keepsake of my first born, Andrew.

 I was able to place one of his socks, along with the birth announcement and one of his hospital bracelets.

some more close ups... 

 The chipboard pram worked really well on this baby themed shadow box.

The flags work well to create the banner of his name, I painetd them in a co-coordinating colour blue so it went together.

I used...

James Dean Shadow Box

This shadow box was created to show that it doesnt have to be a photo of someone you know, but can be themed around your favourite star.
The camera on the left comes from one of the new push out papertole sheets that are on the online store.

 These shadow box frames are great to stamp on, using black ink and the diamond shaped stamp I was able to get this effect.

Washi tape fits perfectly around the border of the Scrapmatts shadow box frames too!
