SSPT Victorian Challenge project!!

I am happy to report that the SSPT Design team is up and running again!!!  WOOHOO!!!  Health issues have prevented us from creating for a bit, but we are back in style!!!

Our challenge, issued by Miss Lacy, was to create something with a Victorian theme.  I recently purchased an embossing powder tin from T!m Holtz.  The box it came in was just too cool to toss, so I upcycled it.  First, I painted it with my ColorArtz airbrush system in cranberry to match my cardstock because I wanted all the edges and corners to match my paper.  Then I cut and applied cranberry cardstock to the box.  I then cut the Cameo from the Heritage Cricut cartridge, once in chipboard and once in black cardstock, misted it with Pearl and Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Mist, then applied 3 coats of Utee.  I created her pearl jewelry using my Pearl Pen from Viva Decor.  I wrapped the box with 1" strips of black cardstock, then applied some gimp lace, topped off with flat-backed pearl trim.  The two lace pieces were misted with Red Velvet Glimmer mist in a method that creates an ombre effect.  I then added a satin flower created using my heat gun, some feathers and black pearl bling.  I plan to use this box to store greeting cards.  Thanks for visiting my blog today!  I love comments!!!  Check back soon!  I have another great give-away in the works!!!

No Entries in the Give-away!!! What's up with that???

Hi, everyone,
Thanks for stopping by my blog!!!  Well, I really wanted to give away the Sentimentals cartridge on National Scrapbooking Day!  I thought the challenge was a simple one!  Make at least one of the flowers from my video, use it on a project and post a picture!  Doesn't seem too difficult, does it?  Anyway, I haven't received even one entry for the drawing.  So, unless someone posts a project before 9pm tonight, I will have to come up with another way to give away this cartridge.  So, if you have a project ready to post, please do so!  Looks like you'd have a really good chance to win!!
