Its been a while...

Due to my sons and Ibeing ill (pneumonia),
I've not had much time or energy to be sitting at my desk being creative :(
Things are looking up though (!) and I managed to finish off this notelet set box this afternoon.
What pushed me was not only that it is due to be delivered soon,

But also

has a challenge (#113) this week to include
Flowers, pearls and lace on a project.
With a fantastic prize for a lucky winner!

2 rubber stamp sets from
'Stempel glede'

Front view of notelet set box.

Close-up of details.

The notelets inside.

The backside.

The design papers and set of ribbons are from the new collection from Panduro called

'Tilda Summer Blues'

I adore them all, so fresh and spring like!
I bought a whole pile of bazzil card in colours that suit the design papers
and put together this set.


On each card I made a spellbinder shape and stamped 'Just a note' from my
'Waltzing mouse' set of sentements and frames,
with 'Versa Magic' ink in Sage which suited all the design paper colours.
I then embossed the text with clear embossing powder
and attached them with 3D pillows.
One of the notelets is made up from scraps from all of the design papers,
I have sewn with my sewing machine on this card and round the panel on the box too.

Then I started to think about how these notelets would best be kept together,
and the idea of making the box cover came to life.
I see now that I have forgotten to take a photo showing this, so I will add that soon :O)
The metal embellishments and flowers are from 'Kort og Godt'
(they got a good dose of Glimmer mist -pearl). Here I have used my new round the page punch by Martha Stewart (think its called vintage lace).

Each notlet measures 12.5 x 12.5 cm
and the folder measures 14.5 x 14.5 cm
I have tucked a writing pen inside the box too.
Hope life is treating you all well :O)

Hugs Nina xx
