Ezee Pzee reveal and blog hop

It’s time for another Ezee Pzee product reveal and blog hop! I think you're really going to enjoy seeing the new products from Ezee Pzee as well as the exciting projects that the Dezign Team have made. I'm feeling pretty insecure about my (admittedly) simple project but please scroll down and take a look anyway. And then hop your way through the absolutely fabulous projects from the rest of the team.
To participate in the blog hop (and maybe win some candy) is ezee! Visit each design team member's blog and leave a comment. You will get one entry into the draw just for visiting and leaving a comment at each Dezign Team Member's blog. Post on your own blog and include a link to the Ezee Pzee blog hop will earn you another entry into the draw (just make sure to leave a comment letting us know that you added the link!). One random winner will get their choice of any 3 Ezee Pzee sets!!!

So, what are you waiting for? The blog hop starts today, Sunday, May 1st and ends one week later on May 8th. If you lose your way at any time here is a full list of all of the Dezign Team blogs with links:

For this month's project, we were given the makings for a little keepsake box. I have to admit that my inspiration went on holidays and so I kept my project very simple.
I covered the chipboard with a thin wood laminate which I then stained to a rich cherry wood red colour. I lined the box with some dark green velvet paper. And for the decorative elements, I painted some Ezee Pzee flourishes with a black glossy enamel and then added an off-white flower.
See, I told you my project wasn't overly exciting! I'm a bit happier with the bookmark that I made with one of Ezee Pzee's new keys. I used a mix of Basic Grey stickers (from the Curio set) and paper from (I think) Bo Bunny. I coloured the key with a brown Copic marker to keep a lot of the natural chipboard colour - coupled with a golden brown ribbon creates a shabby chic look that I think works.

Wow, I certainly sound uncertain of my projects today! I can't believe how many times I typed "I think". LOL. But now you get to hop over to Jennifer's blog where I promise you that you'll be wowed!



  1. I love it! With the thin wood covering n looks like it is made of wood! I love the black on the embellishments as well! I would love this in my home. I also love the use of the key on the little tag! This is all very beautiful! So unique! Thanks Shelley! I love the first Sunday of the month!!
