Scrapbook In A Box

I'm posting this on a day we're expecting 85 mph winds here at the coast and a little over two years since we experienced the worst storm in almost 50 years.  The "Once Upon A Time" scrapbook in a box shown below was created during that last big storm while we were out of power for four days.  The winds howled with gusts up to 130 mph and the noise was so terrible I blocked it out by setting up three battery powered booklights on stands and getting to work.  I like to think the energy of the storm fueled my creativity during those four days!

Without ribbon.

A scrapbook in a box is basically about 10 - 12 layers which fold together in order to create a box.  Each layer is constructed to allow mounting of photographs or journaling.

This particular project was a commissioned piece and the individual it was created for loved frogs.  So the "surprise" in the middle is a plastic frog detailed in Art Institute Glitter.

More detail.

Detail, detail, detail.

Inside of the lid with signature.  With these pictures, I'll never forget the date.  So, as the winds pick up and while we still have power, I'm headed to my workroom!


  1. Trisha, this is an incredible box. I'm so grateful I got to see and enjoy the real thing, although you did a very good job of showing it in photos. You are so talented! :)

  2. P.S. I still really love the new look of your blog. I'm kinda toying with the idea of changing one or more of mine to an updated version. If I ever feel like I have time to play in the next couple of months, maybe you'll help me fiture it out!
