Cookie Boxes with Doodlebug Classic Collection

Hello! Emily here today with some cookie boxes that I altered for my brother's hotel. He is a sales manager at a local hotel and wanted to give some extra special treats to his clients when he went out on sales calls. He purchased white cookie boxes at the local craft store and brought them home to me requesting that I decorate them, and make them "pretty." 

To make them pretty, as he put it, I pulled out the Classic Collection by Doodlebug which you can find in the Happy N Scrappin' store

I used Pebbles ribbon for the little bow on top and a button from the Plumeria Collection for the center of it. 

This second box has more Pebbles ribbon and buttons from a scrapbook kit that I had leftover from using it. 

This last box was the most fun for me to do. It was challenging since it had the clear window in the front. Finally inspiration hit me! I covered the majority of it with the Classic Collection and then used Bazzill Basics Half the Edge on the top and bottom of the front along with some flower brads that I removed the backing from and attached with my glue gun. 

Here are the three boxes together. I think I did a pretty decent job making them look pretty! 

The boxes were a HUGE hit with the clients and I may have a permanent job for the hotel decorating their treat bags and boxes for the sales team!

Pink Lady using BG Konnichiwa

Hello and Happy Friday! Emily here with a layout that I created using the Basic Grey Konnichiwa collection which you can find in the store. This collection is so versatile. That's the joy of double sided paper collections, IMO. I know there are a lot out there, but there are a small handful that give you a completely different look with each side. Some are similar. This collection is one that works on so many levels. I've made a lot of different things with this one! 

I made this layout using photos of my daughter from school. I wanted to repeat the photo in the lower half instead of using other photos. Not to mention, since it is a school photo, there weren't many options! But repetition in photos can be a fun technique to use when creating a layout. If you have never tried it, definitely try it sometime. :) 

Below are close ups of various parts of the layout. 

The fabric behind the photo of Serentiy is actually a part of a muslim bag that I recycled from work. We stamp on them and of course mistakes are made, so instead of throwing them away, I take them home and utilize them in my crafting endeavors! I used some Glimmer Mist and Shimmerz on the fabric to color it. I love how it turned out! 

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
