Victorian altered box for Calico Crafts

Today it is my turn for my second project for Calico Crafts. I decided to alter one of their beautiful boxes.
Here are a few sneak peek images, to see the whole project and a description, please visit their Blog

The "love letters" that belong inside the box.

Oh, Astrid, it's absolutely gorgeous! Love that scrolled piece of paper on the outside, and the way the pen nibs add such fine lines.

Hi dear Astrid,
it's nice to be back in the blog world. You've been very busy in my absence. And a work of art is more beautiful than the other. I especially like the altred box. So great!
Have a nice Sunday my dear.

Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
