Mad About Monday Share

Yes!1 It is that time of the week again for me down here in Australia.  It is Monday morning and I have my Mad About Scrappin project to share with you all.

This Monday I have created four cards.  I think they fit a masculine theme very well and I can never have too many masculine cards!!

I have used up a lot of scraps and papers from the Graphic 45 "By the Sea" collection.

To create all four of my cards I have use Kraft card bases that can be found in the Scrapbooking section in most Kmart stores down here in Australia, and I believe in some over the ditch in New Zealand.  My first two card measure approximately 6"x6" and I have used some jute, hessian (burlap) ribbon and an antique bronze button to embellish.

 For my second card I have used some more hessian ribbon and a metal charm.

 The following two cards are a lot smaller and measure 4"x6".  Again I have used hessian ribbon, bakers twine and added some fussy cutting elements to embellish with.

I just want to send out a big BIG thank you to Leanne from Mad About Scrappin for sending me the two Graphic 45 papers "Botanical Tea" and "By the Sea".  They have been wonderful to work with and absolutely inspirational!  

 Well guys that it, that's my share for this week. Please stop by all the Mad About Scrappin links:-

By The Sea Configuration Box

Hello everyone, It is Monday in my neck of the woods, which means it is time for me to share my Mad About Scrappin project.  This week I have taken a humble pizza box that I received a recent design kit in and transformed it into an upcycled confuguration box.

I started out with all of this .......

then narrowed it down to just this......

I then used these strips to reinforce and strengthen the sides of the box (pictured below)

I cut some "shelving" from some extra thick corrugated cardboard....

and then interlocked them like this.....

Once I had all this done, I decided to cover it all with black card stock instead of painting.  I felt that the card stock would give a more finished surface to the corrugated card board.

I then gathered my supplies. Shells from our time on the South Coast....some drift wood, a piece of sea sponge and last but not least some sand filled little bottles...{yes, I even brought home some beach sand lol ;)}... I will let the pics do the rest of the talking for me, as they speak so much better than I can!!  .....

Well that's my Monday Mad About Scrappin share for this week.  A bit of a longer post this week ;)  ♥ ♥ ♥ Thanks for stopping by......
