    Marianne, this is adorable with all the die cuts, images, flowers…it all!! I am loving the Pion papers more and more when I see how versatile they are and so interchangeable with each group.

    My secret is that I have ordered extra sheets to get more of the stunning butterflies…so love them!! I would love to see one full sheet of all the butterflies….is that possible some day?

    You did an amazing job on this…just love it!ReplyCancel

These photo cube boxes make sweet wedding gifts.  The outside of the cube can be decorated with wedding photos and the top opens to hold small photos and other wedding mementoes.  The boxes were made with the sturdy papers from Pion Design Palette and then covered with papers from the Vintage Wedding Collection.

Best wishes!

2015-05-09 06.17.32Hello, Tracy here sharing my little suitcase shabby chic style.  It’s all packed,  so next stop is Paris.

Here’s a view from the side.  I was careful in the positioning of the flowers so that the suitcase still opened and could be used as a gift box.

The papers and images from Paris Flea Market are so breathtaking, that they add magic to projects.  This card uses Pion Design Palette for the card base and die cuts.  Not only is it thick and strong, it matches perfectly. What a fantastic addition to the Pion Design collection!
Enjoy the day!
