Christmas Diorama Shadowbox

Christmas Greetings and Welcome
to my contribution to the weeklong projects featuring
 Scrapbook Adhesives and Graphic 45

For today's hop, I'm using the precious new collection,
to create this sweet "Diorama Shadowbox"...it even lights up!


Here is a peek at a few of the supplies that I've used:
To begin, I've used a battery-operated LED tea-light that actually
has a timer included.  The timer is perfect for switching on in 
the evening and it automatically turns off after 6 hours.  

I wanted to add the light inside the top of the box, so I first traced
around the tea-light onto the inner box.  

Next I carefully cut the traced circle out using an Xacto knife.
Before attaching the light, I made sure that it fit nice and flush
inside of the hole.


I used a strip of the Extreme 1/4" Double Sided Tape and wrapped
it around the base of the tea light and then placed it inside the opening.

From the Christmas Magic Collection are these fun journal cards.
The package comes with two of each design, so it's perfect for
layering!  I chose a couple of the cards and then trimmed around
smaller details of one card to layer onto the full rendition.  



After making a triangular base from a piece of patterned paper,
I used foam squares to layer the cut-out pieces onto the fuller pieces.

After covering the inside with some of the patterned paper, I 
attached the journal card of choice and then layered on the
matching cut-outs with foam.  In the fore-front I added the
little triangular accent that was made above.  

With the box closed and the light on you can see how beautifully
3D everything looks!  I attached some bottle-brush style trees 
with 3D Adhesive Dots, as well as a sentiment to hide the 
triangle base.

A bow and large sentiment sticker were attached to the front
along with a jingle bell.


Perfect addition for a little one's room or an end table and 
certainly a fun conversation piece :)
Thank you for joining me today and be sure to stop by
the Scrapbook Adhesives Blog to take a look at all of 
the beautiful holiday projects!

MERRY CHRISTMAS!

♥A little about me♥  I'm currently designing for Doodlebug Design and Scrapbook Adhesives and have had the honor of serving on 20+ manufacturers or retailer  design teams over the years!  When I'm not working as a school administrative assistant, you can almost  always find me crafting cuteness for my Etsy Shop: Dot & Whimsy :) Aside from paper-crafting, I also enjoy making jewelry, cross-stitch, embroidery,  home decorating, reading and watching reality TV. But enough about little 'ole me...let's get on to the give-a-way!
With Valentine's Day right around the corner, I set out to find the perfect curation  of all things "red" and "love" in my stash.  The end result is this sweet ♥LOV…

Oh, December Daily, how do I love thee! Isn't this just the greatest idea, ever?  (scrapbooking wise, anyway) Welcome to my contribution to the  SIMPLE STORIES  DECEMBER DAILY BLOG HOP I'm so glad that you're joining us...I can't wait to hop around myself and see how the girls have decorated their SN@P Albums December Daily style :)
**You should be arriving here from Rebecca Keppel's Blog**
I have quite a few photos to share, so I'll leave most of them in a  smaller size.  Just click on each one to enlarge.
My vision for the album was to mix 'n match  Handmade Holiday, SN@P and Year.O.Graphy I wanted bright colors mixed in with more shabby-distressed look that Simple Stories is known for.    For the cover, I took a bright Turquoise Dot SN@P paper and a strip from Year.O.Graphy and stitched them together.  The title is a compilation of  sevearl SN@P sticker elements.
