Have you seen the new Shadow Boxes and Shadow Box kits?  If you haven't, you really need to check them out. There are a bunch of new kits for different Doodlebug collections!  Of course, you don't necessarily need to use the shadow boxes to create something with the stickers and jewels in the kits, but I made my first project using them with the 8x8 black shadow box frame and I think they're really cute!  I altered mine a bit from the original kit to make a heart!

The idea is to fill in a space with as many embellishments as you can. The way I did it and I think that's the best way to do it, is to start with the big stickers and go smaller and smaller until you only have tiny spaces left where you can use the smallest jewels. 

As a background, I used a cupcake dotted patterned paper from the Petite Prints papers. I cut it to 8x8 and then traced a heart on it. I started with the large cardstock stickers and then went smaller and smaller, using small stickers, enamel shapes and then jewels and tiny stickers. 

I really love that you can do whichever shape you want and use the kit for many other things... I'm thinking about a cover for a mini album... :)

When I was done with the heart, I put the paper into the shadow box and then used some alpha stickers to write Lots of Love onto the frame.  I hope you are inspired to create something pretty with this new product. It's super easy and turns out so cute! HAVE FUN!

See you soon!
