Today's blog post is filled with colorful projects that will surely entice you to want to create and craft!

Designer Leslie Ashe has made a special keepsake box filled with precious photos! This box comes together with the Pink Paislee Soiree collection and GlueArts Glue Glider Pro along with our U Cut It Foam. GlueArts U Cut It Foam comes in 2 sheet sizes making it the perfect product to give dimension just where needed!

Our Guest Designer, Lynn Ghahary, has not one but two spectacular projects for you today! Her first project uses the Brand New just released Nantucket line! This line is just gorgeous and perfect for capturing memories from this time of the year! Seaside, soft colors...and Lynn's gift box will leave you wishing it was being sent to you!

Make gift giving even more special with a personalized gift box like this one I created using the gorgeous Nantucket collection by Pink Paislee.  

1)To create this altered gift box I began by cutting the Clam Chowder patterned paper from the Nantucket collection to size and adhering it to the base of my gift box using Glue Arts Glue Glider High Tac Adhesive.  This adhesive is strong enough to hold the papers to my gift box perfectly with no concerns of it coming loose or warping.  

2)Next I cut a piece of the Clam Bake patterned paper from the Nantucket 6x6 Petite Paper Pack and adhered it to the top of my gift box lid.  I trimmed strips from the Crab Cakes patterned paper (this time using the B side) along with a punched border from brown cardstock and adhered this to the edges of my lid again using Glue Arts Glue Glider High Tac Adhesive.  

3)I created a tag using using the Lobster Bisque patterned paper and a Bigz Die from Stampin' Up!  To the front of the tag I adhered a few Chipboard Tiles along with a starfish Wood Shape I had spritzed with Glimmer Mist.  

4)I used the Glue Arts U Cut It Foam Adhesive to adhere the starfish to the tag and give it some extra dimension.  To the front of the starfish I adhered a button using Glue Arts Extreme Adhesive Squares and topped with a few Bling Stickers.  

5)I added a gold Mini Tassel to my tag, tied everything up with the yellow and creme striped ribbon, and tucked one of the Nantucket Trading Cards underneath.
