Cards Tin

Hello bloggers! Hope you all had a great weekend! I have come down with a cold so I am still trying to shake that. But stamping and scrapbooking always makes me feel better!!

Anyway, this was probably one of my favorite projects from convention. I loved them all but I really love this one! This little tin is actually the tin that the accents and elements come in. I know that people have done things like this before but I hadn't. And since we got a in of the Build-A-Flower accents and elements they just had us use that for one of our make-n-takes. Clever! This actually was very easy to do and would make a great class. So, be on the look out for a class. I don't have cards in mine, yet. Wouldn't this be a great gift?

Let me tell you a little bit about this tin. The blue and green flowers come in the Build-A-Flower accents and elements. The flower center does as well but is on a Build-A-Brad. The Build-A-Brads are really interesting. They are bigger than our other brads and you can punch a 1/2" circle from an image or patterned paper and stick it to the top of the brad. Then you put this sticky clear top on and you've got your own custom made brad!! The bad news is that these brads are on back order as they are not meeting quality standards. Hope they get it fixed soon!!

The "C" is our new lower case monogram alphabet. I actually love the lower case more than the upper! It is stamped on our new textured cardstock. Love it! We also spelled out cards onto a label that comes in the accents and elements. As you can tell, you get a LOT of stickers in one of those little tins! I will be showing you even more in the next few days so stay tuned!
