Tags, Tins and Treats ~ Day 9

Hi everyone!! And welcome to Day 9 of this months project parade. It's getting increasingly harder to stick to my diet after seeing all these gorgeous and yummy projects. YIKES!!

But, I'm really excited to share my project with you today. I saw this Fabulous Box and tutorial on Kirsten's Blog found HERE, quite awhile ago, and when I found out the theme for the Verve Project Parade this month was going to be Tags, Tins and Treats, with the inspiration picture HERE, I knew immediately I wanted to try one of Kirsten's gorgeous boxes. I also knew I wanted to use one of Julee's new sentiments "All you need is love, but a little chocolate now and then doesn't hurt." (Charles M. Schulz) So true!! *grin* It's found in the set Love's Flower.


Here's what I filled the drawers with: There are 4 drawers, one on each side.



Each side has a sentiment from the Celebrating You set, and the heart trio comes from the Love Monkey set.


Since I love the vintage look, I decided to distress my project with Vintage Photo Distress ink, and rough up all the edges. I added some flowers, lace, stickles, bling and some glitter to give it an elegant feel, and framed the sentiment with some Spellbinders Nestabilities and Pendants. The gorgeous paper is from Kaisercrafts's Duchess Collection. And the drawer handles are 7 Gypsies.


So, now it's your turn! We'd love for you to play along with us and show us your Tags, Tins & Treats! Verve stamps are not required, but if you've got 'em, why not show 'em a little love? ;)

And, as with all of our project parades, we've got prizes!
To enter, just link up your NEW creation (posted Jan. 25 or later) to the Mr. Linky widget in Julee's post HERE before midnight MST on Monday, February 15. One lucky stamper will win a $25 gift certificate to the Verve Store. And for another chance to win, be sure to give the Divas a little shout out in the comments as they parade their fabulous creations inspired by this month's theme. One lucky commenter during the course of the parade (Jan 25 - Feb 14) will win their choice of any Verve set.
