Here is our list of talented and gifted designers and your first stop on the hop will be with Pinky.
Now for my project: I bought this cabinet at our local Goodwill Store for 2.99. It is a pretty nice cabinet but as soon as I seen it I knew exactly what I wanted to make with it. "Instant" inspiration, don't you love that when it happens.
The first picture shows you the front of the cabinet but here are a few close ups. I love roly poly flowers and use them on so many projects because they are so simple to make. All you need to do is punch out a 2" circle, using your scissors and cut a spiral shape with your circle. Now wrap the outside edge around a pair of tweezers to you get it to the middle, pull the spiral of the tweezers, allow it to release itself a bit and glue to the center with tacky glue. My little Making Memories bottle is filled with Glossy Accent, alcohol ink and for whatever reason it didn't set up so the just moves around freely in the bottle which is really pretty cool. On the bottom left corner I made more of fun roly poly flowers along with some Jolee's flowers that I sprayed with Perfect Pearls sprays. I love to fussy cut so my lady is fussy cut out and place on top of a doily that I also sprayed with Perfect Pearls. I added some Tim Holtz metals, ribbons, keys, etc to give my box characterHere is the inside of my cabinet before I did the inside of it
This is the inside of the cabinet. Can you guess what I made my cabinet into. I made us a Coffee Table Storage Box for our remotes and placed a photo album in it using a 7Gypsies album in it.Here is one side of the box. I did all 4 sides in the same paper and ribbons
Here is the other side of my storage box, I love the Pigs Fly die cut. I also used the sentiments from one of the sheets of paper and double matted them after I distressed them my Tim Holtz distress tool and tiny attacher. My Storage Box is made completely with the Graphic 45 Olde Curiosity Shoppe Collection is the inside of the box, places for our remote controls and a family album
. The album is from 7Gypsies and is covered with the Graphic 45 Olde Curiosity Shoppe along with more roly poly flowers, die cuts, and metals.
The first designer is the very talented Pinky form Much Ado About Nothing.
