A well contained Strawberry Beatrice :)

Hi everybody!!

Today I have a project to show you with a new but already one of my favorite characters from CC Designs by All That Scraps.
Isn't this little girl adorable? Her name is Strawberry Beatrice and I think she is SO cute. As you can see I've created a little project around her. The basis of this project is a lovely template by Lauren Meader from My Time Made Easy and this one is called Well Contained. Now let me just tell you, I LOVE Lauren's templates, they are super easy to use, I love the samples she and her team come up with and I'm always so tempted to buy all of them. This is actually a set, a carton with a holder:
Isn't that adorable? Just perfect for little gifts, maybe socks for a new baby or chocolates for a teacher, so cute!! I used white and red cardstock, an acetate sheet and very old (2009?) Magnolia strawberry paper from the Lazy Summer Day's collection. The flowers are sweetheart blossoms from Wild Orchid Crafts combined with parts of a leaf punch by Martha Stewart. Now the stars that are in the box and for decorative purposes around the box are special, they each contain a handwritten wish! I ordered these from Wish Upon a Star (this is a Facebook link so you'll need to be on Facebook to visit this page) and gave her a list of Dutch wishes that she wrote on strips of paper and she folded these gorgeous little stars out of those strips. Isn't that the cutest idea ever!! In case you don't have Facebook and you want to see her stuff she also sells through a Dutch friend in THIS store.
Now a close up of cute little Strawberry Beatrice. As always colored with Copic Markers and 3D paper pieced for extra dimension.
And finally te little pieces to prove it :).

Hope you like this project, I loved making this!! Be back real soon!!

  11. Hello Mariska, what a creative box project and I LOVE All That Scraps stamps too. I really appreciate that you show the pieces of your 3D images, I was just wondering if it would be possible for you to mention how many times you stamp them as well? Thank-you so much for all the inspiration! {Hugs} Barb
