Happy Monday, I hope you all had a nice weekend.  It's getting warm in Arizona, I've  had to turn the air conditioning on in the afternoon for a few days now.   I'm not looking forward to having the house all closed up for the next six months.  On a happier note - I still have stamps, markers a computer and lots of fun paper crafting stuff to play with!

My project today is a four drawer box I made over the weekend.  I made a similar one for the Waltzing Mouse blog hop on St. Patrick's Day here and I also gave a link to where I found the tutorial in that post.  Kirsten did a fabulous job on it!

This  four drawer box is a little different than my first one.  I used my Quickutz Silhouette machine to make the drawers.  They are a match box pattern that I bought at the on line store, downloaded and enlarged using the Silhouette software.  

The designer paper is from My Time Made Easy, it's called Fresh Fabric and Fresh Flowers and goes really well with the Cranberry card stock I have.  I almost forgot to mention it's digital, I printed it!  I used the Waltzing Mouse Labels 4 stamp set, Fourishes Tag Lines stamp set and Spellbinders Labels 4 dies along with a Quickutz butterfly die and the new Papertrey Ink medium scalloped border die.  Oh, and how about those drawer pulls?  They are a Tim Holtz product.  To attach the pulls to the drawers you punch an 1/8th inch hole, slip the back through the hole and the knob goes onto the front, they are threaded so they screw together for a nice tight fit. 

Thanks for stopping by!
