I follow several bloggs about scrapping and found this amazing card looking like a suitcase at "Annes paper fun" , she makes the most amazing creations. She is lucky to have Tim Holtz suitcase dices for a sizzix machine which I don't, but I printed out her photos and drew myself some templates and cut it out by hand. It was a hell of a job, but I am quite satisfied, especially since I hate meticulous jobs like that.
To select colours for the project I usually start with finding a head piece,in this case the label with home sweet home. Then I could figure out the colour scheme of the project, I must admit that my favorite colours are turquoise and brown.
The heart is from a necklace I bought on sale and dismantled.
I love using page from used books with different fonts, this piece of paper actually have a norwegian text, but usually I buy second hand books and I go to fleemarkeds and buy books in different languages.
I also like the motto "carpe diem", seize the day!
Here I have used the bottle cap of a champagne bottle.
