Gecko Galz Match Box & Pin Swap

Hello Friends and Visitors.
Welcome to my blog :-)
I spent most of my day designing a match box in my 
Silhouette studio program.  I had to do some math...LOL.
I am very happy with my match box template!!
I used the Crazy Mannequins and Journal it Collection From 
Gecko Galz to create a digital collage.
Here it is below
So I created a die cut out of this with my Silhouette SD and put it on my Match box.  I am entering it in a Few Challenges
over at The Flying Unicorn.  I am linking it up at
the Passionately Artistic linking party!  All kinds of gorgeous art there :-)  So please check it out.
Here is my match box below.
I used my Silhouette to print out "Alda" she own's the Flying Unicorn site.  This is actually the box that will be holding some stick pins I made for her.  She is one of my "Stick pin Swap" buddies also going on at the flying Unicorn.
I stamped the sides...and back with stamps I made and the fairy stamp on the outside back cover is from the
Here is the back cover
I just love the fairy silhouettes!!  I have used some fancy yarn to add a little texture to my box.  I used Art Glitter Designer glue to hold it in place.
Here is a close up of the front flower.
You can see the fancy yarn artsy..I LOVE it!!
Now for the inside.  I was to create 3 stick pins per swap group that I signed up for at the Flying Unicorn.  Alda, was in two of my she will be getting the 6 stick pins I made below.
I had so much fun creating these stick pins!!  I sure hope all the girls..and guys....Like them.  I used the
 Zen Garden papers From Gecko Galz and one of their digi stamps
to create the image below...which I used inside my machbox.
Here is the back of my match box.  I used Stazon jeb black ink..and my own hand carved/designed stamps and wrote a little note.  I also inked all the edges with vintage photo by Ranger.
This little box was so fun to make...I just have 5 more to go...LOL.
Have a great day!!
