I have found an old  craft tool that is becoming my favourite. It is the Scor-Bug by Scor -Pal a small hand held device that puts holes into your paper....... I love using stitching on my papers but it is not always easy to get the sewing machine use the Scor-Bug.....I put my paper onto the  12 inch scor board and ran the scor-bug along the straight line.....simple and straight!

I love these papers from Echo Park very bright and cheery.......a simple layout that looks like it has been it!

Echo Park Papers, happy Days - Jillibean Soup Stickers

Today I'm sharing a chipboard box I altered using the Cuddle Collection by Authentique Paper and Kaisercraft Wooden Letters.

This is what the chipboard box looked like originally...

and then I covered the outside of the boxes with Cuddle Boy Two papers and the inside of the boxes with Foundation 1 paper. 

I painted the Kaiser alphabets with Prima' s Egg Blue Chalk Paint and then Prima's white crackle paint. Spread this on really thick using a palette knife and let dry for a couple of hours. When dry I used Tim Holtz Gathered Twigs distress ink on the edges.

All the embellishments are the Cuddle Boy Components die cut sheet.
All supplies are in store now as well as Cuddle Girl........
