Cynthia's sewing room

I created this shadow box as a birthday gift for a friend who loves sewing. I loved how cute it turned out so I'm entering it in the Simply Sunday's challenge over at Getting Cricky with KAndrews.The shadow box is 7"x9.5" and comes in a pack of 3 at Michaels. Here are the individual elements:Wallpaper: DCWV's The Green Stack
Wood flooring and door: DCWV's Textures and Finishes. For the wood flooring, I scored at varying lengths to give it a real hardwood floor look. All the elements were cut at 5 inches. The door was cut from the Wild Card cartridge. The dress form is from Forever Young cartridge with the frame cut from black heavy cardstock and the dress form is from Wausau Paper's Crinkles specialty paper. The sewing machine was cut from the Country Life cartridge from the same heavy cardstock and the accent silver pieces were from my stash. The desk was cut from brown Core'dinations paper and sanded to look a bit distressed. The rug was cut from an oval nestie from Tim Holtz paper and run thru the Cuttlebug with the Textile folder. The sentiment was printed from my computer and then cut with a nestie and inked with Fired Brick distress ink and "hung" with a piece of jewelry wire. Thanks for stopping by.


  1. What an amazing shadow box! This is perfect to hang on the wall of a sewing room. You've really done well at capturing the look of an old-style sewing room, too. Your friend will be delighted!
