Gina K CSS Inspiration Hop

Hiya!!

Tonight the Gina K CSS Alumni gals have put together another blog hop for you. If you came from the talented Miesje Flach's blog you are right on track! If not, please go to Stamp TV and start at the beginning so you do not miss any of the fabulous projects the gals have created for you!

The challenge is to create a card or project based on this inspiration piece from Southern Living provided by Miesje:
When I looked at this photo I knew right away that I wanted to make a Valentine's Day treat holder for Abbi so that is what I did!

I found a tutorial on SCS called Santa's drawer's that I used as a starting point for my treat holder. You can find the tutorial here.

Bare with me as I have a few photos of my finished treat holder so you get the full effect of my Valentine Drawers! *wink*!

The original tutorial had two smaller drawers on top but I wanted it to look more like the dresser in the picture so I made two of the larger ones. All the papers I used are from my 12x12 stash of CS and DP.

I decorated my drawers with images from Gina K's Heartily Yours Stamp set.

Here is a view from the top. The back of the dresser is made with Heart Nestabilities. I added a lace runner across the top of the dresser and made a little Valentine's to sit on top of it.

Here is a side view so you can see how I attached to lava lamp to the dresser and the sentiment banner.
Here is a picture with the drawers open. The knobs on the drawers are Tim Holtz's Idea-ology Hitch Fasteners.
Now I just have to figure what Valentine treats I want to fill those drawers up with!
Now I am going to send you on your way to the uber talented Sue Morris.
Thank you so much for hopping by and enjoy the rest of the hop!

That is so cool! I love your groovy dresser. I need to make one of them. I think a few pieces of chocolate, a piece of jewelry and a giftcard would be great fillers for that cute little dresser.
