Toby, or not Toby!!

StampFairy are sponsoring Stampin' for the Weekend today, and so I've made a little pillow box using a Stampfairy image to support the challenge.  The theme is embossing and I've used Toby Love.

I really love embossing and think it looks great on projects, especially on white.  I also love the simplicity of this little box.

I think my hubby is starting to look at the number of Valentines projects that are now dotted around my craft desk and wondering who they are all for!

Card Recipe:
  • Image - Toby Love from
  • Colouring - Promarkers, Copics, Sakura Stardust Gel pens
  • Embossing folder - Cuttlebug D'vine Swirls
  • Pearls - Wild Orchid Crafts
  • From my stash -  Embroidery thread, glossy accents, white gel pen

I've been inspired by:
Happy crafting.

Hi Annette,
I used to go on holidays in Devon when I was a child and living in England :) I bet alot has changed since then :)

Anyway, just wanted to let you know that I love your design. To be honest I haven't tried dry embossing yet but after seeing how elegant it looks on the white in your design, I think I'm gonna have to try it :) Thank you for joining our 'Valentine - Anything but a card' challenge at Delightful Challenges. Good luck with it & we hope to see you back next week :)
