hello my crafter friends and visitors.
I want to welcome you to my blog and wish you a year full of health and good fortune.
My name is agnes aka flowerdisco.
i love making cards, home decor art and mini albums among other hobbies.
today we are celebrating the New Year with a blog-a-versary blog hop for my dear friend Diana from
if you happen to be around, join in the fun and a chance to win some goodies along the way---;p
today diana's blog is a year old.
including me, there are fourteen (14) stops you will be making. On these stops, you will find four (4) people with a word. those words will give you the clues for the ingredients you need to complete your project.
Each designer will have a project that will inspire you and also have some "clues" as to what the ingredients are.
You will have until January 6th, 2012 at 11:59 PM to link your project at Diana's. Once you have linked your project, you will have the chance to win the provo craft cricut cartridge "sweet tooth box cartridge" at Diana's blogspot.
my project for today,
and it does have the needed ingredients--except one that i forgot...ooops! (sorry diane)
--- among some other techniques.
CAUTION: photo heavy :D
2 x 2 square
(altered paper mache box)
this little box has all the designers names from this "Diana's blog-a-versary".
(by the way, you will find the line-up at the end of this post).
this "memoir box", as i decided to call it---- it is a variation of some i have seen on the web.
this is the box lid embellished with chipboards, bling and ribbon.
these are the corners. i used a sizzix die and some copper fabric paint for the details. the pink strip is a piece of ribbon layered with patterned paper using modge podge as a sealer.
the above photos show how the box opens, revealing an "accordion like stripe" with the names of the designers participating in this hop.
you can also see all the distressing techniques plus some other elements.
the photos below will show you each square.
i used paper punches, rub-ons, distressed alphabet stamps, glitter--- to embellish each square. the first square---the one with diana's name, is attached to the bottom of the box with a very strong adhesive.
well, i sure hope you enjoy my project....it is my gift to diana's.
