De-Stress with the distressing kit from Stampin’ Up!

I am super stoked about this little project that I did!  My neighbour just happened to have a box similar to the one in the new Idea Book and Catalogue for 2011-2012 which is on page 175.  For some reason I cannot get a photo of the project on here but if you download the PDF version go to that page and you will see it.  Here is the link so you can see it.
So what I did is I took a piece of cardstock of the new ‘In Color’ in Pool Party and took it to the big box store and had it color matched.  brought it home and painted my box with it.  I got the paint that already had the primer in (which I love to use) and then I let it cure overnight.
Now I realize I will need a new sanding block but I used the one in our distressing kit and sanded around the edges and in other spots so it would have a distressed look.  In our kit we have several different ink spots specific for this purpose and I used the mahogany spot.  I rubbed it everywhere on the box.  Here is a important trick to it though—make sure that you have a wet rag to wipe off the access; then let it dry and put everything back together.  I was done after that and I loooooooooooooove how it turned out.  I hope you do too!!!!
Now I just need to add some things into it but I like it so much, I don’t know where to put it in my house.  My craft room is in the basement and therefore won’t be seen, so if I were to put my tools and stuff in there where could I put it in my living room without my husband feeling my crafting stuff is creeping back up here.
Leave me a comment with your suggestions, I would GREATLY appreciate it!
Talk to you again soonBe right back

Very cute! Maybe you could make some mini pictures to frame and some 3d projects to display. Change them out every couple months or one at a time as you craft.
