These origami cubes make great wedding gifts. Each side of the cube has a pocket feature with the ability to tuck in small photos. The tops of the boxes open to hold more photos or other mementoes. I used Pion Design’s new thick Palette paper along with decorative paper and images from their Vintage Wedding collection. The Vintage Wedding collection papers have very subtle color but are beautiful nonetheless. I made three using different papers from Vintage Wedding.

The cubes are being featured today on the Pion Design blog here.

Here is the Vintage Wedding collection

Best wishes for a great weekend!


Paris Romance Card

Pion Design’s gorgeous Paris Flea Market papers were used to decorate this card. The card is being featured today on the Pion Design blog here. I used the wonderful new thick Pion Design Palette card stock for the card base and die cuts. I have now started using the Palette card stock for all of my projects and I will never look back! It has a fantastic thickness and texture and I love working with it. Another great thing about the Palette collection is that it matches Pion Design’s decorative papers perfectly. Both of these collections from Pion Design are available from my online store.

The delicate chipboard accents on the card are courtesy of Ms. Maryann Laursen, a special lady from Denmark that I had the pleasure of meeting in person several weeks ago when she was visiting here in the United States. Thank you Maryann!

Best wishes to all for a great week!

These Steampunk Boxes were made using the beige papers of Pion Design’s Paris Flea Market. The project is being featured on their blog today here I used some black texture paste as well as lots of metal trinkets. The vintage image from Pion Design’s From Grandma’s Attic worked great for the steampunk theme! This particular project using these wonderful papers will be featured in the upcoming “Just Steampunk” magazine.

I wanted to also post another project that has already been featured on the Pion Design Blog here. This is a Tim Holtz clock that I covered with pink and blue Pion Design’s Paris Flea Market papers.
