Margie's - The Girl's Paperie and Ten Seconds Studio

Sweet Margie Romney gave me a stack of her FABULOUS papers at CHA. I love the really rich colors she has in all of them....with just a touch of vintage distress on some. Gorgeous stuff from the Girl's Paperie! This is from the Tinsel and Twigs collection.

I was also lucky enough to score some of Ten Seconds Studio's newest Kabuka molds there. The design is from Magenta.

Is is cool or what????

And I'd taken a class with Hero Arts there, soooooo I came away with some wonderful Christmas Stamps.

I used Tim's Texture Fade to emboss the main sheet with Dot Matrix. And of course, just a touch of Distress Inks here and there . The copper metallic paper is under the metal and I used mounting tape to raise it just a bit for dimension.

So dig out your metal, scrounge for some papers and just cover an empty box. You'll have it all ready to give a gift in at Christmas. This was a Fanny Mae box that needs to be replenished!

Have a great one!


  1. Linda, this is such a beautiful piece. I so love your ten Second Studios creations. Thanks for the inspiration

  2. This piece is so inspiring. I have never used metal before so this has definitely given me something to think about. Annette x

  3. You've been busy while I've been away! All your projects are fabulous, of course! Love this box, and hey, I just bought that mold along with two others in Topsfield, MA at Absolutely Everything. Can't wait to make something with them. The new molds are so cool! Those papers work really well with them, too!

  4. WOW!!! That's really lovely! The embossing is to die for. :)

  5. lovely project the ten seconds christmas mold, yummy

  6. What a fab mold it is. Looks great on the box.

  7. That is absolutely beautiful! You do such creative, lovely things! I truly appreciate your talent and your willingness to show it! :)

  8. Very cool effect from the embossing...looks so merry! You are right, the box should have the magical powers of never ending chocolates! LOL
