I think I should have primed the boxes first, and will have to touch mine up , you could also still use them to store project life :).

Loved these designer series papers when they came out in the current Spring/Summer seasonal, but be warned, they are going to be retired :( such lovely pastel colours. So I have been wanting to do a recycle of these project life boxes for ages, and finally got round to it. I thought I would use the Birthday Bouquet papers (so that I can admire them for a while to come) by using them to make a desk tidy. There are a few ways you could do this, I could have used all three lids in line with the bases, but just thought 2 across the back, also looked good.... I started by painting my boxes, and then creating a base from white card and patterned paper. I stuck the boxes to the base and then began to decorate. Cover as much or as little as you wish and then customize with a name, bling or flowers.

Sorry I have been away for a while, I have just had my retreat (last weekend) Scrapstars. We had lots of fun and laughs and of course created some fantastic layouts. The teachers were fantastic, and very inspirational, and now I just want to craft craft craft, well once I have finished catching up on my sleep that is! Here are a few of the projects we made ....

Well I have finally gotten round to Scrapbooking with these gorgeous papers. I created a post a while ago showing the papers that are included in the stack and a card I had made, and have been itching to use the papers and coordinating embossing folder in my Scrapbooking, finally today was the day, but because there are so many patterns (papers being double sided) I still feel there is loads I could do with them, look out for future layouts. :)
