If not, you'll want to start at The Craft's Meow blog so that you don't miss out on any of the inspiration!

For the Release Blog Hop days I try to feature a non-card project.  I get some extra bonus points because I did some upcycling too!

As a paper crafter, I don't tend to buy any manufactured cards or tags except from these companies:


In comes this Cavellini hinged tin:

Although my intention was to use multiple The Craft's Meow December Releases in this projects, I ended up with Lovely Labels:

See the PTI kraft panel?  It measures 4 x 6....yup, hold that thought...

4 x 6

Yup, this tin will house my photos that need to scrapbooked:)


Bonus points if you can pick which one of these cutie pies is my 16 year old girl...

waiting....

She's the one on the left...the other girlie is my friends daughter that is in her first year of college...oh my, how time has flown by....seriously.

My color palette for today's project was INSPIRED BY....

  13. Oh now that is one good idea! I love the idea that the tin is small enough to be on your desk, big enough to hold photos and pretty enough to just sit there and be pretty if it wanted to! That picture is so cute, reminds me of some of my twin and me when we were youngins!
