hope you perk up soon...


It's Amy T here with an altered project for you:

I'm a super big fan of altering tins...this one use to have birthday tags in them.

Everything except the tin was from the kit...oh yeah, the glitter is from my stash too.

Do you see that coffee pot?  It was a nakey chippie and after searching on the web, I slammed my embossing pad all over it and then loaded it up with Zing embossing powder.  I balance it on my ruler, really quite comical and hit it with the heat gun.

I like the sheen that the embossing powder give it....think of fiestaware.

The overall design was inspired by THIS sketch.

I did the interior of the tin with, yup, Starbucks Via!

The gingham paper and ribbon are from this month's kit, the journal card and blooms are from a previous Paper Made Bakery kit.  I couldn't resist, the stamped sentiment was perfect for the die cut!

Really lovin' the Warms Your Heart is chock full of fun and colors!

Buy yours today!
Pin It!
