Tiddly Inks Anything Goes Challenge--Ornament Gift Box

Well-- How the hell has everyone been? It's been months and months since my last visit to my playroom to play.....I have been so busy with redoing the inside of our house from top to bottom--head to toe--purging--painting and redecorating that I just haven't had time to play. But I made an executive decision to make a point to play this morning that I made a couple of projects for the challenge over at Tiddly Inks.... ENJOY!!!!!!
here I used a snowman from the inky critters collection ......paired it with the pie box from My Scrap Chic's 30 boxes and more cut files....I added a bunch of ribbon and some pom pom fringe around the side and made a clay tag from polymer clay to hang from the side....
just an open shot with the shredded stuff...don't think I'll like this stuff... here is the full on open view....I really need to add some cardstock to the inside just to cover up the print lines...this particular box I printed it out onto my cardstock and then used my scissors to cut it out. That's what I like about this place...they give you all sorts of options in one file on how you want to use them, instead of only one option. Print or cut...
Just a view of the back....the string is to hold the lid closed. I opted to make this into a hanging gift box to add to the tree so I needed some way to keep the lid closed....I just used 2 brads and a piece of twine....
Here's the second project for the challenge using snowman sid....just a quick card I made using some scraps from the box above....I also used the bracket card cut from the 30 boxes and more files from My Scrap Chic....the frame was cut using one from Pazzles....greeting and light from Studio G....
Well if you haven't already seen the collections that Christy has over at The Scrap Chic--Tiddly Inks for cut files. You should pop on over....they are soo adorable...and I knew I just had to have them. After all, paper piecing was my first love of paper arts...I did purchase the new release collection this morning for 60 % off....can you believe that...everything in the store is 60% off right now...and that my friend is a BARGAIN!!!! Remember these aren't just cut files, you can print and cut them out with your scissors as well.....go ahead, pop over and see what you've been missing....I did....lol....thanks Christy for such fun images to play with....I can't wait to use these.....

Well that's all I have for this time....I do hope to be back to a normal schedule...I have missed everyone so much these past few months and can't wait to make my way around to visit everyone....I hope that you all have a wonderful Sunday....Hugs from a very SWEET Charm City....

Nancy..this box is really adorable...you're right though about the tinsle (shreddings) I don't think I would like that either. I really like your card too...very cute.

Oh Wow! What a comprehensive project, this must have taken you ages. It would have taken me dayz. I'm a slllllowww scrapper.

Just love the pie box, those pom poms are so adorable. The snowman card is fab too. Just love the look of his snowy body, did you sponge him. What every you did cool technique.

Welcome back to Bloggy World, hope your reno's when well.
