Spring Drawers – Dear Lizzy Collection

Hi Everyone and if you are on the Paper Issues blog-hop – you should be visiting from Sabrina’s fabulous blog. [The contest previously published here has now closed. The randomly chosen winner was Leonie] I have a fun project to share today – it’s a Storage Unit from Kaisercraft and I have used the American Crafts Dear Lizzy range along with a few American Crafts extras to decorate. Like all the Kasiercraft BTP projects I complete I have sanded all the edges and painted with acrylic paint before starting. I then pre-cut paper to fit all the visible sides, glued the drawers together, attached the paper and started to decorate them. All the drawers are fully lined with paper too. This fabulous collection is not new but I only just managed to lay my hands on it here in New Zealand!  It’s so pretty and I actually added the name of a little girl I knew who was having a birthday onto the side and gave it as a gift! Here are a few extra close up pictures of the details Next on the hop is Kim Castillon and I guarantee she has something amazing to show you. Lowri :-)

Lightly dust the surface of the icing with cornstarch again to remove any trace of stickiness Spread some gel icing onto an acrylic block (I used Chefmaster) Ink your stamp with the colouring – […]
