My Little Shoebox projects

Along with (zillions) of other hopefuls, I applied for the My Little Shoebox DT. And along with (almost zillions) of those hopefuls I was disappointed. Hey ho, nothing ventured and all that.

These are two of the projects I created for the submission.

The first is a cake tin I found at a ridiculously low price at Home Bargains (and am kicking myself for not buying up loads as they are just perfect for teacher pressies - a bit of decoration and add some muffins and it's good to go). Anyway, I digress. I created a layered scene inside the tin and added hanging bits above and below.

The scalloped circle was cut out using my Craft Robo, very handily the largest I was able to cut was just the perfect size for the tin!

I created 'blocks' of acetate by folding strips and attaching to the back of the different elements, each layer having blocks of different thicknesses.

Quite a few of the elements (birds wings, windows, hearts and so on)  were highlighted with Glossy Accents too.

The second project is the card element of the submission.

I created a box fold style card with acetate aperture. Lots of cutting, layering and bling.

And the back is decorated too with space for the written message. (Sentiment stamp Hero Arts.)

These projects are fabulous! I don't know who they picked for their design team, but it must have been a close call because these look like winners to me! :)

Fabulous projects - so lively and cheering, new techniques for me to try too.
Look forward to seeing more of you.
