Petaloo Blog Hop - Day 3

Happy Wednesday to you, it's an exciting week for us here on the blog as we are blog hopping with... 

We are so excited to bring you inspiration with our friends at Petaloo


Hi everyone, Martha Lucia here with you to blog hop with Petaloo and Quick Quotes!

I am super excited to share my projects with you. From Petaloo I used fabulous flowers and burlap trims, that I loved, and from Quick Quotes the Gypsy Road Collection Papers, Joy Ride 100 Paper, Catalina Island Chipboard, Chipboard Laser Diecut Bag o'Chips Frames and of course our PowderPuff Chalk Inks.

I created a box with a little notebook inside. Since this project is for Mom, I thought she needed a good place to write her personal notes or tips for the entire family. I called it "Mama said..."

To make this box I used the dark side of the Gypsy Road 300 Paper. I created the box using the Envelope Punch Board. When the box is closed, it measures 4-3/8"x4-3/8". I decorated the front of the box with a piece of Gypsy Road 100, that I passed through a crimper to create a special texture before I pasted the rest of the embellishments.


I continued the decoration using the Natural Burlap Trim, the Tea Stained Yellow Dahlias and Spice Dahlias from Petaloo and I cut a a few leaves with steam from Joy Ride 100 Paper to combine with them. 

To put a message on my box, I used a chipboard from Catalina Island Chipboard Collection, that I framed using a chipboard piece from Brag O'Chips-Frames that I colored with Peach Tree and  Sunset PowderPuff Chalk Ink.


The notebook that comes inside of my box, was also decorated with the same colors of the Petaloo Flowers and Quick Quotes Papers. But I added some funny sentiments that I stamped using Evergreen PowderPuff Chalk Ink.


With this box I can put the notebook inside without worrying that the flowers will get damaged. I am pretty sure that my mom will love this gift and I hope you like too.
