VC Rocks July Blog Hop

Thank you for visiting my blog and joining us for a weekend of amazing blog hopping. You won’t be disappointed. The hop officially kicks off at 10AM Eastern/9AM Central, 8AM Mountain, 7AM Pacific on Saturday and will run through the weekend.  If you are following the Blog Hop, and you just came from the fabulous Elizabeth Harris' blog,  then you are in the right place. 

If you have just joined us or got lost along the way you can start over at the beginning here.

This month's  theme is Anything but a Card, now that can be anything from a box, basket , business card holders or  jewelry -- the list is endless.  For my project I chose to do this gift tin, I saw one just like it on  Carla Brasher blog. I liked it so much I decided to cas it. 

I moved this summer and my neighbor has been such a great help to me and my family and she has never asked for a thing in return, so I thought why not make something for her as a gift and show it here on the blog hop.

Supplies I used:

Card stock: Island Indigo, Pool Party all from the New 2011-2012 Catalog
DSP: Paisley Petals ( from the new 2011-2012 Catalog)
Punches: 2-3/8 Scallop Circle, 1-3/4 Circle, 1-3/8 Circle, 1” Circle, ¾ “and the
New Lace Ribbon Border Punch (from the new 2011-2012 catalog)
Ribbon: Whisper White Satin Ribbon (inked to match using Pool Party)
Accessories: see through tin, bottle caps, magnets, Snail Adhesive, Crystal Effects and Basic Rhinestones

I hope you have enjoyed the projects I made for you today. For anyone interested in how I made this tin I will be posting the tutorial on Monday night or Tuesday morning. The tutorial is so long, I thought I would post it separate

And, as you leave my blog, please hop on over to the fantastic blog of Marisol Gutierrez.
