Friday Feature – The Struggle Is Real

October 20, 2017

Hello and welcome to another Friday Feature here on the Ink Road blog. Today we are exploring the endless possibilities of the Struggle is Real stamp set. Our team did an amazing job incorporating this set to all sorts of different projects. Let’s take a closer look.

Hello again! Monica here with a fun gift idea for your favorite coffee lovers. Let’s take another look at the boxes.

I loved making these! These pillow boxes are just the right size for some coffee and a sweet treat. Let’s get right in to how I put these pillow boxes together.

I give the patterned paper full credit for my inspiration for this project, it is GORGEOUS! The paper is from the Turn the Page collection by Pink Paislee. I cut the 12×12 sheet of paper into 4, 6×6 pieces. I followed the steps using the We R Memory Keepers Pillow Box Punch Board to get the 4 boxes. I put the boxes together with some Scor-tape to make sure they wouldn’t come apart.

I gold heat embossed the sentiment from The Struggle is Real stamp set from The Ink Road onto some navy cardstock. I used a circle die and a scalloped circle die from Sizzix to put the tags together. I added a gold glitter heart to the tag from the Crate Paper Cute Girl embellishments collection for some bling. Next, I added in the coffee and chocolate. I tied the box closed with some natural twine from May Arts and adhered the tag onto the box. I hope you give these a try, thanks so much for popping by today. See you soon!

For my Travelers Notebook spread, I was inspired by the ” I Cant Emphasize This Enough” stamp in The Struggle is Real set. I really wanted to emphasize the theme of COFFEE, which pretty much rules my life!

I stamped the “Coffee” repeatedly to drive home the theme, and created the tag on the right page by using multiple embossing powders to give a great look of dimension! I hope you enjoy and are inspired by my project, and go grab this great set for yourself!!
