Under Lock and Key

New Year is a time for resolutions. For promises we have a really hard time keeping 😉 and one of these resolutions are usually the promise of loosing weight or eating more healthy.

I too try to make this promise – every year! And every year, I fail!

It might have something to do with making the promise to hard to keep – setting the goal too high.

So this year, I’ve decided to use a humoristic approach instead and throw in a little Valentines Day into it as well, even though I usually do not do Valentines Day.

I started of with the Heart Lock Box from Simply Crafty Svgs:

I used AC Cardstock in Olive and decorated with patterned paper from Imaginisce “Perfectly Posh”, Bling Cardstock in a light grey from Bazzill and Silver Metallic Cardstock from Tim Holtz.

I cut the key 4 times for dimension and sturdiness and found the quote in the Silhouette Design Store design ID #275125 which I made using the Print and Cut feature in the Software.

But this wasn’t my main idea, so I made the box from the Tire Box also from Simply Crafty Svgs and left out all the decorations.

Then I made a slit for the handle from the previous box to go in and…..ta daaaaa…..A new Lock Box:

I used AC Dark Kraft Cardstock for the box and decorated with Bazzill Bling Cardstock and Tim Holtz Metallic Cardstock.

I made a panel for the key, which I also had altered a bit in the Silhouette Software, by making an internal offset of the shape. Then I embossed both panel and keyhole panel with a Diamond Plate embossing folder from Cuttlebug. I sanded the embossed panels a little bit and added a chain for the key.

I made the label in the Silhouette Software by layering design ID #2948 and my own text and used the Print and Cut feature.

A “nice” reminder to myself NOT to go in the Fridge for snacks or munchies. I did make it as a open lock, since the rest of the family should be able to go into the fridge 😀

Thanks for joining me today – I really hope 2019 is going to bring even more creativity to us all and that we find the time to use it. 🙂

  1. Sjov måde at gøre det på og få en selv til at huske at lade være at åbne køleskabet så tit.
    Et af mine nytårsforsæt er at blive bedre til at sige ja når min dreng spørger efter en legeaftale hjemme hos os. Jeg tror der er større succes med det, end at tabe mig i det ny år. Et fortsæt der altid er gået i vasken for mig. Mit nytårsfortsæt for 2017+2018 var at smile mere og det har givet mig mere livskvalitet og det har det også for min familie. Så nu skal der arbejdes på det sociale i år. Men det kan nu også blive en hård opgave. Rigtig godt nytår Helle og pøj pøj med dit nytårsforsæt.
