Chipboard Violin and Picture Frame - Tresors de Luxe DT

Hello my lovelies :-)
So being that I am still up (almost midnight) checking blog land I might as well share my work lol...
Today/night I'd like to share my first DT project for Tresors de Luxe known for their fine laces, trims and embellishments. I made a project that has been on my "to do" list for well over a year... handmade Violin using chipboard (yes I really love playing with chipboard lol) and a coordinating picture frame. The Violin is a home decor as my hubby plays the Violin and when we start dating he took me to his concert and I was amazed, such beautiful music. The frame will house the picture we took at the concert :-)




Now I can scratch it off my list!
I would like to know what you think :-)
Thanks for stopping by and talk to soon.

Large Double Dresser - Cynthialoowho DT

Happy Saturday everyone :-)
Hoping you are enjoying your weekend so far...
I would like to share with you a "Large Double Dresser" that I created as a DT project for Cynthialoowho using her templates that you can find HERE just scroll down the page and click on the design that interests you :-) They are really easy to assemble and she even has Ustream classes on Wednesdays to show you how to assemble them. All the links to her social networks and Ustream are on her home page on the right.
Here is my creation using the temeplate...

I used medium weight chipboard and distress the edges with Tim Holtz Distress paint daber, then cover all panels with Prima Romantique paper line. Cereal boxes were used to make the drawers and for the drawer pulls, I used some acyrilc beads from a braclet which had some head pins already in them. So I just punch a hole in the center of the drawer and place the pins through and loop it on the inside of the draw, so when you pull on the bead it opens the drawer without pulling the pin back through the hole :-) For extra flair I added beautiful metal filigrees from Butterbees Scrap as a decor on each drawer.
This dresser measures; 7 1/2" tall by 10" wide

I am using this dresser as an Embellishment center, so I made a label/sign on the top using Spellbinders die "Timeless Rectangles", added some flower blooms from recollection and a gorgeous handmade butterfly from Reneabouquets 

I have also added another butterfly from Spellbinders die "Les Papillion two" on the opposite side of the dresser. Flowers from Wild Orchis Crafts and Prima.

Side view showing the depth of the dresser 5" deep.

I hope you like what I've created and please go check out the templates, they are reasonable and you can create form 3D projects to unique shape mini albums :-)

Thanks for stopping by and talk to you all soon :-)
