  • Now you’ve seen many projects over the last few days. With Easter on the horizon, many are cute and whimsical. I thought today I would share a more elegant approach to one of our newest templates, the Round and Round.


    This template was designed to be versatile. So while it can become an Easter egg, or a basket, it can also become an elegant box too!

    So I chose to use the Regal Round Up paper collection to show you a more elegant approach to this packaging. The butterfly pattern is on the top layer, and the stripe around the box is also from one of the patterns in the set.

    I “lined” the inside of my box with a pattern in this set as well that is a re-colored version of the original in Freestyle Florals © . Don’t worry, that pattern within the Regal Round Up paper collection was FREE. By using dgital paper I can often re-color it to coordinate with my project! No worry about not having the right colors, using up a favorite pattern or running out ever! If you like a pattern, digitally re-color it to coordinate. I already did that here, so I included it in the pack as it was a great accent to the pack of Regal Round Up paper.

    This box is packaging a very large oval bar of lavendar soap.

    It looks awesome in here!

    I used the paper to pull the colors for my choice of tags from the AMAZING Round Off set. This set is so amazing. Anytime you need a tag you will find one in this set to suit every occasion. The set it FILLED with so many sentiments, it will be hard to pick which one to use first!

    I chose the “This should cheer you up!” sentiment. I added the butterfly from the Spring is Here set, to my tag. I should add I made my own paper-covered brad too for the flower center 😀

    I have a Silhouette Cameo now and it cuts out all my digital images! I am in LOVE with it! It cut out my tag here no problem-o! Again, I layered my Round Off tag onto a tag layer from the Fine Finish Tag cut file.

    One of the MANY benefits to working with digital images is layering with EASE. I also love the perfect coloring of a multi-piece image, such as all the tags with patterns.

     If this was an acrylic stamp it would be hard to get a perfect, multi-colored image! Once you save your layered/colored images you can easily go back and re-use them or re-color. You can mass produce stuff, and all your hard work isn’t in vain because you saved it and can re-use it again later.

     I also love the ability to resize or mirror images too. If you want an image or sentiment from another set that typically wouldn’t fit (if it was acrylic) you can resize it so it does. Mixing and matching couldn’t get easier. That is exactly what I did with the butterfly on my tag in this project…resized, colored and layered it to fit.

    Don’t be afradi to give it a try. You’re missing out if you don’t!

    Endless possibilities.
