If you have just hopped onto my blog, you can start here as this is a circular hop, but if you get lost you can find your way by going to Brae's blog at http://thebrae-er.blogspot.com for a full list of participants. If you came from Alyson 's blog Create with Alyson then you are in the right place!
This month, we are focusing on new products from our CTMH Idea Book. I had already created this project for my recent open house and it uses two of my favourite new products....the My Creations Kraft Container (Z1833) and Hollyhock Zipper Lace (Z1826). I wanted my project to be bright and colourful, so I chose the Chantilly Paper Pack (X7163B).
Cutting the slot in the top of the Kraft container to make this a piggy bank was fairly easy.....the lid can be gently eased apart so that you can work on a flat surface, then I punched two small holes with my cropadile where I wanted the slot to start and finish, then used an exacto knife to join them up. I then added my paper and embellishments and then glued it back in place with a bead of liquid glass around the edge.
Additional supplies used: Z679 Liquid glass, Z1807 Pink Glitter Gems, white daisy crocheted flower from Z1786 Mini-Medley Accents Antiqued Gold collection, flowers and butterfly from Z1266 Spring Blossoms (retired), Hollyhock ink.
Your next stop on the Hop is Heather at Heather's Scrapping .
Thanks for hopping along with us - we hope we were able to inspire you to create your own projects using some of the designs and paper seen along the way. Join us again in next month when we will be featuring a "technique" hop!
