Scrapfest 2009: Creative Imaginations

I was sad to find out that Creative Imaginations did not have a vendor make and take booth this year - their's was the "go to booth" the last few visits to Scrapfest.

Luckily, we signed up for their "Box Full of Love" Class in advance! It is a beautiful project which I will finish up soon... as soon as I select the rest of the photos I want to use (and scan them in and print them out!). Meanwhile, here is what Cheryl Mazzetti designed for us!

Above is a view of the completed box from the outside. We used the "Corina" book as the base. This shot shows a closeup of the butterfly and swarovski crystal we added.

Inside the box is a fold out book which we embellished with a variety of things from the "Narratives" line by Karen Russell.

You can see the stickles we added to enhance the already beautiful paper and rub ons.

The book is an accordion style - you can see how it looks all together here.

Here is the first page. A photo of me and The Boy. Probably the rest of the photos will be of us as well.

We used a neat technique here, folding paper to make it look like ribbon - very simple, but very cool. We added the faux stiching to complete the effect.

Page three...

Another fun and easy technique - we punched a few evenly spaced holes with our quarter inch punch, and threaded through a thinly cut piece of paper.

Page four... Page five...

Page six...

And finally, the back cover.

I know I still have some finish work to do - but check out all the extras I'll have for another project! And these are some truly lovely items!

I have the class curriculm sheet for this project since they were kind enough to provide them, they include all the individual items we used as well as assembly instructions. I feel funny simply posting them here, but if you send me an email, I will shoot them back to you.

I know it's been quite a while but I have finally opened my Corina book. I'd love to have you send me the info sheet on the class.
thank you!
