Oval Shaped Note book and Gift Box

Oval Shaped Notebook with Tim Holtz  Small Tattered Florals
Hello! Today I am sharing my design for the Inspiration post for the Craft Stamper - Take it Make it Challenge. As always the theme is anything goes - as long as you include some stamping. The prize this month for the lucky random winner is a set of 10 Ecoline Brush pens and as usual the design team favourite gets their design published in the magazine!

I few weeks ago I took part in a swap with the lovely people from Let's Be Creative. Our theme was to make something oval for our swap partner so I challenged myself to make this Oval Mini Book. As it was going to my partner I also make a little gift box.

I used Tim Holtz Ornate Frame Bigz die to cut the oval shape (ie the centre of the frame); from greyboard for the covers and also the pages inside. I created a crackled cover, added some stamping and some splatters. All paints are PaperArtsy. My flowers and leaves are die cuts from Tim Holtz Mini Tattered Florals.

On the back I added the initials of my gift recipient:
