Happy New Year! 2012 is the year to experience your dreams!
eCrafting my inspirations!
Hello All! I am Debi Tullier (to-yay) I am a jack of all trades and a master of none, but that is where the fun is!!!
I am delighted to be back with the eCraft Design Team! I am looking forward to all of the wondrous adventures ahead with my eCraft. I am so thankful for the inspiration that I receive from my fellow crafters and hopefully I will also inspire someone to open their crafting cupboard!
My Project is my One Word Inspire Box. I have a good friend that uses this to set her yearly goals. She uses a word to set her goal for the year. I am not a long term person and need to have inspiration on a daily basis. So my word for this month is Inspire and each day I take a slip of paper and write down one word. This slip goes into my inspire box. Next month I will draw one word a day and use it to grow my creative palette.
Ingredients for Inspire Box:
- SVGcuts One piece Box Svg!
- DCWV Black Cardstock for the inside of the box
- 3L Adhesive (LOVE IT)
- eCraft Cutting System
- Eyelet and trim for box tie from Hobby Lobby
- brad button cover from I-top
- I-top2 from Imaginisce
- 4 inches of sheer ribbon from JoAnn’s
- hand sewing needle and thread from JoAnn’s
- Misc material
- ink for inspire stamp
This wonderful DCWV cardstock spoke to me. I had to have it as my Inspiration Box cover. It speaks of all I hold dear. Family, Journeys, Adventures and so much more. How wonderful that it in itself is an inspiration.
My eCraft Cutting System was ready to take on the task of cutting out my one piece box.
I set the pressure to 3, No tabs, Cap on and cardstock stabilizer used.
Very quickly the box was cut and ready to be assembled. I used my favorite 3L Crafty Power Tape. I love the Super tack of this tape!
Next I put in the eyelet to make a catch for my beautiful little box.
I threaded in a small piece of cording to make a catch for the lid.
Next I used my fav Crafting Tool the I-Top 2 for my button cover brad!
I first place a inked dot with the word “Inspire” on the cover then covered it with sheer fabric.
I made the ribbon rosetta very easily.
I just hand sewed the edge and pulled and tied it to form a rosetta.
I then placed the button cover brad in the hole and placed it upon my little box.
Now for my new Beginning! I am ready to motivate myself into 2012’s best creative year ever!!!
I hope you will join me! Happy New Year to all and the hope for more to come!
