Good morning, and here we are on our first monthly challenge on Just Magnolia. We are hoping to run 2 monthly challenges every month as well as our weekly challenge so there really should be something for everyone!! This challenge will run for 2 weeks and is totally seperate from our usual weekly challenge. Our sponsor is Simon Says Stamp and they have very generously offered $50 to spend in their store to one lucky winner. The challenge this week is to .....
ALTER A CONTAINER
You can alter absolutely any type of container you like. It can be something you have had stuck in a drawer for ages - you do not need to buy anything special. I decided to alter a photo album. It is just one of those little cheap ones you can pick up anywhere. I have followed the sketch over at Friday Sketchers (I do love sketches) and have turned and flipped it!
I have used some favourite papers of mine - had to dust them off a bit but they are still as gorgeous as every. Had a good time punching too with my flower punches and my MSDP - it has been neglected a little bit recently but is still my favourite border punch in the whole world! I have also finally used my new label dies on the spine of the album - these are fab and can't wait to use them again.
You might be wondering why I had called my album 'Magnolia' .... well it is because it is not for piccies of Tilda, lol, instead ..... a nice clean place to store all my yummy Magnolia images! The pockets are the perfect size to slot the images in - so you see ... it is a container for images (lateral thinking hahaha).
The only problem is that I am now going to have to make these little albums for all my other stamped images. I also think it is a nice alternative to a birthday card for a crafty friend. You can make the outside like a card and then fill it full of lovely images as a surprise ..... I had better get busy!
