Hi there! Didn't I say August was going to be busy?! It's been a whirlwind of stamps and inks around here. lol! It's also CASE Study's 2nd Anniversary Blog Hop - Week 2! For this week our challenge is: Thinking Out of the Box. I have been racking my brain ever since I got this assignment. Chupa said we shouldn't stress about it, but I was clueless! lol!
Welcome to the blog hop! If you just came from Christina's blog then you are in the right spot! If not, please head on over to CASE Study Challenge Blog and start there.
I've actually been working on some baby shower invites for a friend. And while making them I finally had an idea for my project. I don't usually do 3D projects, packaging or sets. But I saw a beautiful baby announcement that Ashley Newell made for PTI in this post. I thought I'd use the glassine bag idea for my project. But instead of a baby announcement, I made a small treat bag.
All stamps and dies are from PTI. I die cut the Fine Linen patterned paper with the Button Card Die to make my background panel. Then I die cut the circle and pinking circle using Limitless Layers. The hippo is from Tremendous Treats: Birthday. I stamped it twice, colored it and layered the head piece using foam tape.
On the bottom, I used Script Alphabet Dies to make the word baby out of some My Mind's Eye patterned paper. I adhered it over a strip of lace and felt. It's a pretty simple and easy project. I bet you could think of a lot of uses for this idea. It was so much fun making it! And I love the results! :)
I hope you like my Thinking Outside the Box project. It has a lot of possibilities, don't you think? :) If you're done here you can head on over to Iwona "Chupa" Palamountain's blog. Prizes are being offered up at the blog, so make sure you get the deets! :)
