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. 🙂
