It's Christmas Thyme & Give Away

If you haven't guessed that's the Holiday kit from Club Scrap....Christmas Thyme and I LOVE it!  The stamps for this kit are simply beautiful and the colors are so pretty together.  For my little part of this Christmas grand tour I decided to take an old project - Up, Up & Away - Art on a String and put my Ink Stained spin on it....


O.k....I know, it does look like an unassuming box.
A pretty box but still...


Did you notice it had a lid??

Go ahead...

lift off the lid....


And the front panel falls down to reveal a fun little accordion scrapbook!!!


Both sides of the album have been decorated, just waiting for Christmas pictures!!


Now how's that for a fun little surprise???


The inside of the box and box lid are decorated as well :)

As luck would have it, I have a 2nd Up, Up and Away Project kit which contains the book board, Up, Up and Away papers, and embellishments and written instructions to complete the original project (shown below).


and I even have a link to several alternative ideas for this project - I Love Club Scrap Projects.

So many fun ideas to create this project or you might figure out something totally new like I did!  If you'd like a chance to win this extra Up, Up and Away Project kit simply post a comment to be entered to win.  You have until December 3rd to enter to win.  Good Luck Friends!

Merry Christmas Everyone!!

    1. p.s. Roni, Is there going to be a 2017 calendar project this year? I always look forward to the techniques you demonstrate in creating my own calendar gifts for the new year. Hope we'll get to play along!

  25. The "house" is fantastic.
    this would fit in with my
    miniature houses that I have
    on display. Would love to
    work on embellishing it.
    thanks for the offer of the kit.

  28. I love this Roni, what a clever idea to hide a little accordion book in there...I like how the box stands and there seems to be a lot of room for photos. :) Clever girl!
