Can you handle this!
Wow how cold is it today, and snow frittering down, oh i can't handle anymore of that stuff thats for sure!
Did you enjoy the blog hop, wasn't it inspirational, all those fabulous projects! A big thank you to those who left comments they are very much appreciated...
Well I have another for you today, Over at the colour Throwdown challenge blog, they have a fab colour challenge this week, I dont have any Kiwi Kiss (so wished we had it here in the U.K) But have used the equally lovely Pear Pizzaz instead..
I have made two lots of the same design today, mainly as I forgot to add a touch of Early Expresso.. I made a gift box for my after eights, and this was using a technique originally used by a fellow Demo as convention for her swaps, I am not sure what her name so can't give credit directly, Sorry whoever you are... Anywas all you do is cut your cardstock to the Height size and wrap around the belly of item, and stick at the back. Then take some DS paper and cut to width and wrap from front top down to bottom, underneath back up and round the top and down a bit! Very easy, but not so easy to say me thinks...lol.. Hope I have not confused anyone!
All items I have used are Stampin up, The Butterfly prints set, the So Happy for you (Free when you spend £45 in one go) The following punches: Butterfly , 1 3/8 circle, scallop circle, scallop trim border. Marina mist DSP from the 12 x 12 mat pack,& Cardstock, The beautiful 1/8 ribbon in early Expresso and Marina Mist and those gorgeous Rhinestones....
Bye for now!
