Customizing the Shadow Boxes

I love it when customers share with me photos of their completed projects. I recently received a wonderful email from Nancy Gray. She customized my Canoe at Sunrise shadow box with a photo her Dad had taken in Alaska. He has spent a lot of time up there kayaking so she used his photography as the back ground. She also eliminated the cattails and branches that weren't part of the Alaskan habitat. And then she added the Father's Day greeting. Beautiful results and a special card.

Below is another sample that showed up on Facebook in the Silhouette Card Making and Paper Crafts group.  Suzette Sinclair modified the shadow box portion to make a greeting card. She also shared that she saves calendar photos for this type of project.  Great idea!

Kelly at uses svg files in her quilting and other fabric projects. She recently blogged about making an artsy placemat based on my Winterberry and Chickadee Shadow Box file.

What a beautiful combination of crafts! Kelly also posted a Youtube video about the process for creating this placemat here.

Here is my original design. You can see what wonderful variety can be added by mixing your own creativity and skill set.

Chandi Walsh's designs and a Video Tutorial

I knew the Shadow Box Alphabet had loads of customization potential. But I was so busy creating all the files I had to limit my exploration. Lucky for us Chandi Walsh has taken my files and added an inspiring touch of herself to them.  She recently shared the following photos on my FB page.

She has a wonderful sense full of pizazz  in her design.  I love the background choice and the stars embellishment.  It is a great example of the degree of personalization that can be done with this set of files. What style!

Chandi's first project was a RELAX wall art piece for her bathroom. She created embellishments to match the shower curtain.




Best news of all...Chandi made a youTube video tutorial of the assembly process. She has a few variations on my techniques but does a beautiful job.  Visit her YouTube Chanel here.
