Colorplay: One Night In Bethlehem Lighted Book Shadowbox


Today I have a fun project. I created a lighted book shadowbox display piece using an old book i found at our local Goodwill and some beautiful papers and ephemera from Colorplay / Photoplay.

I have some still pictures of each page and also a video showing how it works and a bit of a tutorial.

Pictures first:

Here is the video walk through:  (terrible thumbprint pic. Sheesh!)

Hope you like it.

ColorPlay: A Day At the Park Mini Album

How'd you like the box of cards? Fun, right? Well, today I have another project using the same Color Play A Day At the Park papers. It turned out so cute! (If you don't mind me saying so.) Sadly, something happened when I moved my pictures from my camera to my computer. Several of them went missing. And, since I no longer have the album any more I can't take more pics. But, there are still quite a few pics of the album. Enjoy!

Well, I hope you liked what I was able to share. It's an accordion album in case you weren't able to tell from the pics. Hopefully I can find my missing pics and I can fill in my post.

Thanks for stopping by. Have a great day!

ColorPlay: A Day At the Park Cards and Box

I have been super busy lately and hopefully I'll be able to share all the things I've been making with you over the next several days. First up is this fun card box including five cards I made using ColorPlay's A Day At The Park. Enjoy!
First there's the box. 
 Side view...
and the back...

 And when you lift the lid you can find the cards. As you can see there is plenty of space to add envelopes and even more cards.
 Here is a close up of each of the cards:

Fun, right? Love this paper. It is great to work with and ColorPlay offers three different paper packs to work with. The standard collection paper pack which includes two of each of six double sided papers and one page of stickers. Then there is a pack of Solids and Prints which is also two of each of six double sided papers. Last but not least, the pack of Tiny Prints, which as the name suggests, gives you many of the same prints but in a smaller size. Some of the Tiny Print papers are divided into 6x6 sections so you get four designs on one piece.

All three of the paper packs  coordinate beautifully together. I will be showing a mini album I made with a combination of all of these papers next!

Hope you're having a great day! Thanks for stopping by.
