Canisters Vintage Style...

Hi folks...I've been itching to play with the fabulous Canister die from Eileen Hull's Sizzix Scoreboards XL Collection so here's the second of my January DT projects for Inspiration Emporium which I'll also be sharing over at Inspiration Emporium's blog...Inspiration Journal. I decided to take the vintage route using the gorgeous Prima Engraver Papers that also arrived in my DT parcel to make button and trim containers for the cubbyhole...
and what a stroke of luck...I found some Prima flowers and buttons in the cubbyhole stash that matched perfectly...

and don't you just love when a plan comes together...the Recipe Card Die project is almost finished...wow the cubbyhole crew are a-rocking 'n a-rolling...cooking by gas and striking while the inspiration iron is still hot...

Hugs Kath xxx

I do believe I'm in love with those papers... Just stunning! But I'm not allowed to buy anything new now for the foreseeable future, so will have to resist the temptation!

Hi Kath, these are so pretty. I love all your altered art projects. I have a question/request for you...have you ever done something for a special anniversary, it could be a card or an altered picture frame, if not would it be possible for you to do something, or give me some ideas how I might go about doing it? My sister and bro-in-law celebrate their ruby anniversary at the end of March and instead of just making a card I really want to try and do something 'special' that they can keep. Any help from you or any of your followers would be gratefully received. x

These canisters are absolutely brilliant. Beautiful papers and embellishments, the canisters look fantastic, hard to believe these are made using a die. You do realise, I'll NEED to get hold of this die now. Thanks for the inspiration Kath. xx
