I am really enjoying all of the pictures from the CHA floor, and love seeing random pictures of some of the things that I had the chance to create coming through with all of the other inspiring projects. It makes me feel better about not having the opportunity to go this year.
This particular picture is from the fantastic people at Paper Crafts, I handmade all of the hibiscus flowers and leaves for the Tropical Travelogue line, and even though they were difficult, I am so pleased with the results!
Graphic 45 is giving people a chance to win their favorite collection before it is even in the stores, go check out the details at their blog, and while you are their, pick up a really fun Le Cirque Project Sheet for free!!! Doing a little creating is a nice way to spend our time if we can't be in Anaheim!
I have spent quite a few hours doing searches for this particular type of domed lid rustic lunch pail, but didn't have much luck with retail. But what I did find might even be a better fit for truly special family memories. If you have a relative with a pail that has a story to tell, perfection! If not, I did do an ebay.com search and there are some spectacular vintage pieces there, or maybe a trip to your local thrift or salvation army shop will result in a delightful find. The pail needs to be at 10 1/2" on the width or at the diagonal for this project to fit inside.
I am working on a fun tutorial with the newest metal butterflies from Graphic 45 and hope to have that ready to share soon! In the mean time, I hope everyone is enjoying their winter crafting time!!
