ICSketches: Love Set & A Special Gift....

It's time for a new challenge at ICS! This time there is no sketch - yes you heard me right - no sketch to follow, but some fabulous boxes to create! Our generous sponsor DZ Doodles has asked us to use these boxes and we of course had to agree to such a fun and exciting challenge!

Box Designs~
You can find the box templates here:

Indeed, this was so fun that I had to accompany the box with a matching card!

You must take a look at the DTs creations! They are amazing!! Make it a point to come join us this week - you'll surely have fun! :)

Love Set~
I used Box 2 for this.

this love set would end up back in my shelf, yes, I couldn't bear to give it away.. LOL... Most of all its because it houses the necklace which I so love! It's a gift from my darling and i have 2 necklaces in my collection now... Instead of using this as a gift box I'm recording the details of the necklace in the card and safe keeping the necklace which I'm currently not wearing... So instead of just keeping the necklace in my jewelry box, I'm choosing to display it..
In the card, i record the events and date when the necklace was given to me. Documenting such important dates and events are precious!

And from my previous post - I told you about a special gift... Now I am able to post the photos!
This week's Challenge at ICS was to alter a gift box - and guess what?

Fellow DT Pearl made one for me! So touched!
She placed some more ribbons in there - and gave it to me!
I am so touched! Pearl - I'm not done with the happy tears even up to now!
Thank you Pearl!

Do check out her hand dyed ribbons on sale - if you are from Singapore.. She's giving us the priority for her limited edition ribbons! Woohoot!

oooooo my, Stacy ! I cant blame you for not giving it away ! but to use it to record the details of a fantastic keepsake - that's a fabulous idea !!!!

I'm sure you will make more in the future if you need a gift box of this size ! lol .

So happy you're happy with the "extra" ribbon colors ! I thought it would be safe to add on - one can never have enough ribbon colors for sure !
