This is what I did with the inside of the holder. As you can see I used the Definitely Decorative ornament stamp and ornament punch. It is terrifically quick - just like this project. Although you can't see it, I mixed some Frost White shimmer paint with real red. I love all the sparkle it makes!

Well, you may have noticed a new little gadget to the right side of my blog...I was selected to be on a brand new design team for a great new challenge blog called Treasures from Scraps. You can click right on the banner to go directly to the website. If you would like to join in on the challenge, you could be the lucky winner of a $20 gift certificate to 2 Peas in a Bucket!!!
So, here in this post you get to see my first creations for the design team! The challenge was for items that would help you decorate your home for fall and since the leaves are falling everywhere around me, I was quite inspired!
Above you will see the scrapbook page I made to put some lovely pictures of my sweet daughter who is turning 3 on Sunday (boo hoo - she's not a baby anymore!) If you notice the little Curly Label punch on the left side, it pulls out to put journaling underneath the picture spot.
Here are a few closeup shots. The one above shows the letter. I don't know who makes these chipboard letters, but they were a natural woodgrain color. I didn't mind the color, but I decided to mix a little shimmer paint with Soft Suede re-inker to create some shimmery brown paint. It didn't take much - just a few drops of each. Next, I painted the letters using a q-tip - it was nice and easy to smear and really quick to just throw away when I was finished.
So, here is my humble little ensemble - hope you like it!!! Join the latest challenge at Treasures from Scraps - you might just be the lucky winner of $20 from 2 Peas in a Bucket!
