I taught this project as a class at SENZ – a scrapbook expo here in New Zealand. It uses a travel collection from Echo Park which has a more vintage feel, however the prints are also very “clean” allowing you to alter the way you use it to a more modern or antiqued style.
The drawers are a design we have made exclusively for us here in New Zealand and being laser cut they are the exact same size – every single time. It makes for an easy project as you are able to pre-cut the papers and attach them to the drawers as opposed to having to glue the paper and then cut round with a knife.
The sides of the drawers are also decorated and the cluster of embellishments on the top helps adds balance, height and interest to the finished piece.
The two sides are decorated with an inked Globe Flourish from Kaisercraft and a die cut from a Tim Holtz die, as well as various trinkets and glass accents (all included in the kit!) The decoration on top includes a trinket and bottle as well as a gorgeous pen nibs from Tim Holtz.
As mentioned above – this collection is GREAT as by switching up the papers you can create a completely different look and feel. Many of the ladies in the class love the vintage look and they inked the edges of all the papers to create a more distressed style.
If you are looking for products to create a similar project – check out these great travel collections from Echo Park / Carta Bella at Scrapbook.com!
