SCS ULAS CHALLENGE WINTER BRIGHT

This week, Diane Gilbert (djluvs2stamp on SCS) is hosting the UP LATE AND STAMPING (ULAS) CHALLENGE on SCS. For details, visit Diane's blog, My Little Stampin' Spot.

The challenge was to alter anything. Just when I swore I'd never alter another lunchbox tin, I got the fever again last night! I've really been enjoying using the Winter Bright Simply Scrappin' Kit, and thought it would work well for a tin. I kept the tin generic without dividers so the recipient could use it for whatever she wanted. (I'm keeping the recipient of this gift set a secret so she's surprised ... she reads my blog!)

I was inspired by my upline, Barbara Welch's coaster frame that she made as a door prize for the Portland SU Regionals. See Barbara's coaster frame and gift set on Cambria Turnbow's blog, Stamp A Little Love, Baby, HERE. Wallet size photos can be clipped on to the frame. The clips are by Making Memories and match the Winter Bright colors perfectly! (found at Michael's).
RECIPE
Paper: Winter Bright Simply Scrappin Kit
Ink: Bashful Blue Classic (for inking the edges of the coasters)
Embellishments: On Board Garland Greetings Chipboard Snowflakes (pg. 9 Holiday Mini 2007), Real Red Buttons, Red Gingham and Blue Gingham Ribbon, Pretty In Pink and Bashful Blue Grosgrain Ribbon, Making Memories Clips
Tools: Spiral Punch, Crop-A-Dile, Corner Rounder, 1 1/4" Circle Punch
Supplies: Sticky Strip
