Graphic 45 Secret Garden Shadow Box SS Swap

Spring will be here soon for some of us. For those that are under snowstorms this swap will be welcoming.

You have until Friday 3/15/13 to sign up.

We will be using the Secret Garden Graphic 45 paper collection and G45 Matchbox 8x8. We will create a shadow box for our secret sister to display anywhere she wishes. I hope to see a lot of creativity and originality on this project.

This swap will have a twist. After we have completed our creation and posted a picture in our gallery we will vote on favorite, of course this will be done before we mail it to our secret sister. The sister that does the creation that gets the most votes will receive a prize from me. Might be a store bought item or something made by me. I don’t know yet what it will be.

This swap will end 2+ months from now we will mail shadow box the week of May 27, 2013 so that we all receive package around the same time.
We will vote on favorite on May 24 and 25 by pming me. I will announce the winner on the 27nd of May so everyone will need to be done and picture will have to be posted in gallery if you want to have a chance of winning. And some lucky person will receive an extra package.

Sample:

Graphic 45 Nutcracker Sweet Shadow Box for "Scraputante" By Dawna.s Place

Just a note****You can use any type of box just as long as it is around 8 inches or bigger and can be converted into a shadowbox.....

I was wondering the same thing bobbi. I already have a shadow box with glass that I think will work...Not sure of the size though. I think mine is only 6x6 though.

So the question to Martica is ...if he box is wood with glass will that work? Martica I haven't played for awhile and I am really thinking I want to do this one....but give me a day or two to think about it. I am right now working on a heritage book for my mil. My deadline is April 19th and I have 27 more pages to go, have done 21 pages! I think I am about ready to faint!

But I LOVE these papers.

Barb the SEI box is only $3.99.

I like the match box 8x8 size and it really is not expensive considering this is a highend swap....It allows us to focus our money on the decoration of that box...but just my thoughts...

I don't mind paying the 3.99 for the box, it's that darn shipping cost that gets me. I think I'll see what they have at my local stores first before I have to order anything. Bobbie, I too was considering the cigar box. God only knows that I have plenty of those.

The shipping is a killer...I forgot.. I have not found any SS locally in pittsburgh so I order almost everything unless I can get it from Micheals, Joannes, Hobby Lobby...Ac Moore...I will check there as well

I have a question too. Can you only use the 8x8 g45 secert garden paper to cover and decorate the box or can you some other paper with it? Also, do you put something in the box for your ss? Sorry I haven't made one of these but it looks like fun.
Thanks,
Julia

Cigar Box is fine, the idea is to make it look like a shadowbox. So any box is ok. I would really prefer 8x8 or bigger. If you have a 6x6 you might be able to make it look a little bigger by adding lace to outside or something.

Graphic 45 paper should be the main paper used for this project.

Hi all... Martica, I looked in the gallery at other box swaps you have done, and they are amazing! I would love to be included in this one. I have a few swaps under my belt now, including an altered project, and pics of them in my gallery. So if you don't mind, please count me in.

Just to be clear, are the inside of the boxes supposed to be decorated as shadow boxes, or to be decorated so they can be put to use? Also, it mentions that the use of other boxes is ok, and I just wanted to check to see if you would like them to be the shadow box type, as opposed to the box with a full lid. Thanks for the clarification. I look forward to the opportunity to swap with you!

Welcome ladies so nice to see old friends and new ones too.
Let me answer a few questions regarding swap. Someone asked does it have to be a shadowbox type box or can a regular box be alright? Either one is find. My idea of this swap is to create a scene inside box.I will see if I can find something in google and post here.
Box can have a lid.

here is a sample of what I was talking about

You could probably use a shoe box also and maybe cut a center hole out to give it that window look. Just trying to think of ideas for those that can't afford to buy a shadow box.

Susie, thanks for that info on the problem if painted....hmmm. I would think adding paper to the sides would also add thickness and wonder if that too would hinder it from sliding?

I'll figure it out once it gets here. I did get some supplies from ebay or was it etsy or was it hmmm, what's that other crafty site..... I plan on using on the shadow box.

Later my lovelies...

It's the shadow box along with a couple packs of die cuts. This just goes to show the kind of friends you find on this site. It just makes me cry to know how blessed I am with you all.

Hi there ladies. Yes it really is me.
I have never done one of these types of shadow boxes before. Only the kind in the frame. A bit nervous but think that will start to go away once my shadow box makes it here. I have everything else to start.
Linny, if it slides in like the match boxes we did.... Not sure if I would paint of cover anything on the surfaces that slide. Who will see that part when it is close which is prob always.
Deb, that is cool that you got happy mail. God does have angels here on earth.
Sounds like this swap is going to be another awesome experience. After looking over the participants, I am feeling a lot nervous. Wow there is some major talent here.
Hey Linny, I may have to take a vicodin and dream on it somemore while waiting on my shadow box to arrive.

OK, what's going on here. I just received more happy mail. This time it was the 8x8 secret garden paper along with some flowers and more die cuts. I don't know who my secret angels are but there is a special place in heaven for you all. Thank you so much. I am humbled by your generosity. Now I'm just going to go cry for a bit. All this sweetness is overwhelming me.

What you are finished?



No, not quite, she said in a small, tiny voice.

BUT, I've had this paper for almost 2 wks, so I've had time to think about it. I wasn't planning for a shadowbox, though, I was going to decorate the outside & then make a mini-album for inside. In my plan, you would be able to see the cover of the album thru the "window".

AND, like I said, I may not be able to part with this--so DON'T WORRY (be happy--lol)!

I have my paper and it is 12 x 12. I am wondering how I am going to make it work for an 8 x 8 shadow box. Stressing just a little. Though it could be I am not in a creative mood. I strained my back today and feel like carp!

Martica, You have not received your paper order yet?

Deb, That is great. You sure do deserve it. Wait, are you sure that you do not have Linny's sleep shopping thing?

Flowers I need new flowers. hmmmmm....... M's did not have any worth buying. Maybe I will look here on SB.com.

Susie, I cannot wait to see what you have been working on with this gorgeous paper.

Tonight I need to make some Easter cards. A co-worker asked me to make some for his daughters that leave in another state with thier mom.

Then maybe shop for flowers on line.

Deb if it's too overwhelming just go ahead and send the goodies my way - I'm happy to take them off your hands :).

Do you know how much I adore all you ladies? I wish I were wealthy for no other reason than to see you all whenever the whim hit.

This is my first shadow box as well and I'm very simple in my artistic nature so I hope after two years of not scrapping that I can do my sister the honor she will deserve (whoever it will end up being).

Good morning!

Lorna, I left a message at Websters and they never even returned the call! I want my stuff too!

I'm gonna have to pull back on shopping. Between the $750 to fix the car; the new puter; and need to pay taxes + quarterly taxes.....it's very difficult. My shopping without a care at this time of the year ..... oy!

But I can't stop!!!!! Last night I spent over $200 on bedding for my son!!!! He's moving and mentioned he needs to get sheets...so I ordered 2 sets of sheets, a duvet set, and a comforter for him! HSN had some really great specials. oy, again.

So, maybe I need to come out of retirement or wind up in the poor house

Good morning ladies.
Just a quick one.

No flowers last night. I did not get on iamroses.
I had to make some Easter cards.
Tomorrow I am taking a day trip to Austin for a birthday party. I have a great-niece that will be 1 yr on the 17th and one that will be 2yrs on the 17th. They are special to me.

I will try to check in later.

Have a blessed Friday.

Lorna, after you mentioned night time/sleep shopping, I got online to check my checking account and then realized that there isn't any money in there so everthing would have been declined. That's a safe way to keep any shopping habits down.

Linnny, there was a time that I was hooked on QVC and HSN. Walk away from the TV before you get sucked in any further. I can't even watch those channels that they don't talk me into buying something. There must be subliminal (sp?) messages being sent to our brain waves. Plus, I had money in checking.

Barbara, the best way to make a 12x12 sheet of paper work for a 8x8 box is to cut your paper down to the 8x8 size. Sorry, just being sarcastic. What I really meant was to use the paper that doesn't have images and cut that to size then fussy cut anyimages to work into your paper. Does that make sense?

Its a secret sister swap unless everyone prefers otherwise which is fine with me.

If you all want you can pm me 5 choices and I will try to accommodate your request. Its getting hard not to repeat partners so any help is great.

I agree with SS. And I agree that I am fine with whomever I get. If it is a repeat no prob. This is a new swap. So much talent, that I am thrilled and honored to be accepted in.
