Kathryn (desdichaedo) and Rina's (scrapstress) Shadow box

I watched a tutorial on YouTube from thenorsugirl ( and got totally inspired.  I quickly went to the scrapbook room and busted out the supplies.  It took a little bit of reconfiguring, but I finally got the shadow box just the way I wanted.  I then stayed up until 5am so I could finish decorating Rina's shadow box.  I think it came out totally awesome.  I really fell in love with it.  

Here's my YouTube video showing you my project and then I have pictures to show you in a little more detail.

Here's the front cover.  I used the Tim Holtz tag and bookplates die and double embossed it using bronze and black embossing powder.

I made this swan flower using Rina's tutorial (

The Greeting Farm's Cheeky Beauty.

Double embossed with black and silver embossing powder.

The Greeting Farm Cheeky Glamour.

I am totally in LOVE with how they came out.  They were super fun to make.  I need a couple more to display in my room and to give as gifts. 

Hope you guys enjoy.  Contact me if you have any questions :) Mercy


  1. WOW Ms. Mercy, this is just gorgeous!! The flower in the front is my fav. you did a great job. I also love the tag with the stamp dress on it, just beautiful. I'm going to check oout the vid, cause this looks like hard project. But, so worth it.

  2. Hiya Marlene!! It really isn't hard once you get the hang of it. The first time takes longer because you need to figure everything out but then it goes by quickly. Maybe I'll make a vid showing you how I do it :) Mercy

  3. Wow outdid yourself. This is so fabulous. Yeah you really should do a video. Love it!
