What's In the box - Teddybo Challenge

Hi Crafty Bloggers

I was hoping to post on Christmas Eve but was a bad blogger !  planned to go to my mums for an hour after work !! Got home at 3 am oopsies my mum is a bad influence lol. Just been having the best time with all my family & friends. Hope you all are too !! . Have you any New Year Resolutions !! I am going to try eating more healthier more fruit vegetables instead of bacon sandwiches crisps etc.. lol. I have  gave up smoking for 4 weeks now it is really tough but I am determined so have been keeping myself busy in between all the festivities !!

 My first inspiration is for the current Teddybo Challenge no 24 - Your birthstone mine is peridot a green stone. Must be honest not keen on green and wish I was an aquamarine lol . I found these gorgeous peridot flower centres from Prima ! Then I remembered !! a post I saw,  so I have made a stationary box which was inspired by Camilla a Magnolia DT . I found a brilliant you tube tutorial  Part 1 & Part 2 by Danni really is not hard to make and is so much fun to decorate !!

I chose Herman and images from FairyD at Teddybo. How can you not resist this charming old bear !.

Firstly I made the box and matted it with Raspberry Road Digi Papers !

 I used my cricut to make the flowers and leaves on top and finished it with a Berisford chocolate Ribbon bow !!

Then I decorated the inside so that when the lid is lifted the stationary box is full of surprises !!

Then I made all the cards and tags for it !
First up are the larger cards and insides !

 then the tiny cards and insides !

and then some tags

and my favourite part where I have coloured Herman and made him the cover of the notebook !!

I have made little notelets and even a little pocket for stamps. Also in the box is a lovely pen with eraser and a gorgeous green pin !! I did not colour the rest of the images as the pencil drawings are just to pretty and I really liked the effect !!  Also making the cards and tags simple was really hard not to keep adding lol ! There are no ingredients today as I think I would be here forever lol though the images in case you like them are FAIRY_TB_HERMAN_001 ,FAIRY_TB_WED_005 & FAIRY_TB_WED_006. Yes I am posting in the wee hours of the morning doing some night shifts lol . Have not commented much as been super busy working and having fun !!!
 Hope you all have a super New Year and hey you never know what surprises  2012 may bring !!

Lots of Crafty Hugs  Kitty ;0) xxx

  3. Fabulous project with Hermann - love all the cards and the details.
    Good luck with giving up smoking - I gave up 10 months ago and it was the hardest thing I've ever done I found the key was changing my routine especially first thing in the morning.
