Good morning!  I hope y’all enjoyed your weekend and you’re ready for something wonderful!

The E-Team has been busy working on our latest mission . . . .


Our mission was to use either Darcie’s new Acrylic Shadowbox Frames and/or stamps.

Your mission, if you chose to accept, is to visit the blogs of my fellow E-Team members to see what they have created.  Then you’ll want to visit the eP Blog and leave a comment there, because Daisy will be giving away eP Blog Candy!

I decided to work with Darcie’s new Acrylic Shadowbox Frame and Holly Jolly Paper from My Mind’s Eye.  The paper is absolutely gorgeous and I picked a piece that had some ornaments in the corner that I could use as the background in the shadow box.  I traced my design on the paper, cut it out and then adhered it with matte Multi-Medium.  Because I decided to have ornaments on the inside, I decided to go with trees for my embellishments.


I die cut three separate trees using the new Tim Holtz Sizzix Pine Tree.  All were inked with Peeled Paint Distress Ink and the one for the inside was trimmed down using the frame as a pattern.  The other two were layered for the outside, only the bottom trunk was cut off the top layer.

I found a few Maya Road birds that were left over from a class that I inked with Fired Brick Distress Ink and then covered with Fired Brick Distress Stickles.  I decided to use “believe” as the sentiment on the inside for a couple of reasons.  The main reason being that I’ve always told my girls that you need to “believe” in the magic of the season.  I think as a mother it has always been that special phrase to carry over Santa for them as long as possible.  They may not believe in Santa any more; but I do.  I just look at them and say it’s the magic of the season . . . believe!  Santa always comes to see me.  How about you?

Anyhoo, “believe” is made from Jonathon and Noah mini alphabets from Maya Road, inked in Fired Brick and covered in Distress Stickles.  The tickets are small parts from the Holly Jolly Paper which are held in place with Tim Holtz Memo Pins.


For some added fun I added some iridescent snow that I found at the store the other day.  Instead of layering the acrylic cover over the entire shadowbox, I changed mine up because of the snow.  I layered two of the middle pieces, the acrylic cover and then the last layer, that I covered in more of the Holly Jolly Paper.  I didn’t want to adhere my trees to the acrylic and I also thought this method might work with the snow better.

Thanks for stopping by today and remember to visit the other E-Team Designers, and to take advantage of the adventures that come your way today!

EDITED TO ADD: Darcie is playing along with us today as a Special Guest and has posted a shadowbox ornament tutorial on her blog. It’s fabulous and you can check it out here.
