Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge Blog Challenge #4 - Show Some Sparkle, Glitz, or Glam!

Monday, March 17, 2014

Hello Bloggers!

Welcome to the Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge Blog Challenge #4.   Wow, Craft Hoarders anonymous Challenge is going on their fourth challenge.  We are moving along and we are loving all of your projects you are sharing with us.  This month Graphic 45 is our sponsor.  They are known for their fabulous vintage products and papers. To pay homage to their glamour and style, create a project that shows off your hoarded sparkly items. Show some glitz! Pump up the glam! Use this photo below for some extra inspiration.

One lucky winner will win all these goodies donated by Graphic 45!  Go in your hoard and create something with some Sparkle, Glitz or Glam!  You have two weeks to create something beautiful, we can’t wait to see what you have created.

These last two challenges with Craft Hoarders Anonymous, I have loved....did I tell you how much I love Graphic 45 papers!  If I have not told you, I love their products!  For this challenge, I have altered a cigar box I had in my hoard.  The paper I used is from Graphic 45 Couture Collection.  I used the 12 x 12 sheet called "Chic".  I mounted two of the ladies on chipboard and fuzzy cut them out.  I then popped the taller lady up with pop dots.  I added some bling at the bottom of the box.  Then I took a couple of the words from the Couture Alphabet Sticker sheet and mounted them on chipboard and added them on top of the bling.  I cut the word "style" from the 12 x 12 page "accessorize" and mounted into the Tim Holtz ornate plates.  I had the clock and the fluer de lis  in my stash and added it onto the box.  To top the box off I used the knob from Tim Holtz collection.

For the sides of my box, I used the graphic 45 Bird Song collection -"Longevity". The key lock is from Tim Holtz - Locket keys.
