Christmas Keepsake Box by Yvonne van de Grijp
I created a keepsake box for special small Christmas memories such tiny gifts, cards, labels, photos, and embellishments… wouldn’t it be great to create a box each year to cherish each Christmas?
To create the box, ink all edges of the Regular Book Box – Ivory using grey ink and paint the inside of the box with grey paint.
Adhere patterned paper from the Twelve Days of Christmas – Deluxe Collectors Edition to the box using the E-Z Runner Ultra Strong Refillable Dispenser and Thin 3D Foam Squares White Mix (for the top layer on top of the box). To adhere the twine, lace, and embellishments using the E-Z Runner Ultra String Refillable Dispenser, Adhesive Dots, and the Dual Tip Glue Pen. More details can be found on my blog so click HERE: Christmas Keepsake Box

A Keepsake Holiday Scrapbook Page by Tracy McLennon
I am always inspired by Graphic 45. I have a love for creating heritage or vintage inspired layouts. So Graphic 45 and I are a great fit. I found the perfect photo to pair with this young at heart vintage collection, and really wanted to showcase some of the beautiful tags and pockets. A great way to do that is using dimension, and 3D Foam Squares.
I thought the black striped ribbon was a nice addition to the Graphic 45 patterns. A great adhesive for working with any ribbon or trim is the E-Z Runner® Ultra Strong Refillable Dispenser. Then to add that perfect vintage finishing touch, I used Creative Photo Corners in Ivory to add my photo. Look for my tutorial on my blog by clicking HERE: Keepsake Scrapbook Page.
