Lilly's "Beautiful Dreamer" 3D Suitcase Project

Hey guys!!! Guess who’s back with a super fun 3D project share? :) Meee!!! Ok, ok, on with the good stuff.. (LOL) So when I received this collection I knew I had to make at least one 3D project with it, and here it is you guys ..

Tada!!! Isn’t it adorable?? It’s a functional suitcase that u can load up with goodies and send away to a pen pal.

I got the idea from Jenn on ytube.. Here is her tutorial if you want to make one yourself.

This collection is perfect for a project like this one, and I really hope this post inspires you to create one for one of your friends. It’s definitely easier than it looks, trust me.. I myself can’t wait to make some more :) Thank you guys for joining me on today’s post and I hope to see you guys soon.. Happy Crafting!!!

Water Color and Peonies with Aimee

It’s Aimee again! Today I got messy with the “Beautiful Dreamer” Kit and just had to share with you!

 I went way out of my comfort zone with this one! I mixed water colors with a fancy cut paper and machine stitching.

 I started this layout off by using a cut file from Kim Watson, you can find the file here.  I scaled down the file and cut it using the “Her Name is Aurora” 12x12 paper. You guys, this paper is so beautiful and the decision to cut it was so hard to make!

 I printed my photo to look like a polaroid picture.

 I marked where I was going to adhere my photo and I water colored around the outside of those marks.

Now, I really don’t know how to water color. I just moved some color and water on the paper and this is the final look! This is WAY out of my comfort zone.

 After it dried, I placed a heavy book on my paper and let it dry overnight {I don’t care for how the paper gets wavy after you have put paint/water on it - another reason why this is out of my comfort zone}

 I adhered my photo to my paper and then stitched around the photo several times.

I used some stickers from the sticker sheet to complement the photo, and then I placed my cut file over my photo, adhering it with 3-d foam adhesive.

 I also dated the layout with my date roller stamp

 How often do you leave your comfort zone when scrapping???
