‘Enjoy the little things’ matchbook

Hi everybody! Hope you’re having a great day! We’ve had medical appointments yesterday and today, out of town both days, so I finally have a spare few minutes this evening to post my newest matchbook! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you. I really appreciate your support! I believe I mentioned how addictive these little matchbooks are, lol! They are so fun! I’ve mailed the first two out and have someone in mind for this one so thought I might better get my post done. And I didn’t forget to include the itty bitty envelope with this one! ;)

I cut the base from CutCardStock Basis Gray cardstock and used Stardream Metallic Silver cardstock for the window trim on both sides. I used coordinating patterned papers from Polly’s Paper Studio for the wallpaper and rug. I stamped all the elements on Neenah Classic Crest Baronial Ivory cardstock, colored them with alcohol markers and cut them with the coordinating dies. There’s even a mirror on the wall above the fireplace that has a silver foil cardstock ‘mirror.’

Here are shots going around the outside.

And one more peek… these matchbooks are so stinkin’ cute I can’t stand it! I have one more to play with, the Kitchen Set, so stay tuned! I’ve only seen four sets and I bought all four, so if Bonnie Krebs designs any more of them for Ai, I’ll definitely add them to my collection! She’s one talented gal!

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D

  1. Your “den” is absolutely wonderful, I can’t get over the small details that are in it, you’re right, for someone to design something like this they are very talented, but you are talented making it so beautifully. I LOVE it. I look forward to seeing the kitchen hahaha

  2. This matchbook is so wonderful. I couldn’t imagine having to work on something so small. You definitely do beautiful work. My eyesight is getting worse every year. I have to make my cards bigger because I can no longer color small image. It’s quite a nuisance.
