Scrapbook Steals April Blog Hop

WELCOME to the April SCRAPBOOKSTEALS blog hop!!
Today's steal is so AMAZING!!! 
MY MIND'S EYE MISS CAROLINE

I was overjoyed to receive a pad of MISS CAROLINE DILLY DALLY in the mail from the Steal Network to create with! It's so fun and cute too. 
I quickly dug into the paper and began by covering an over sized clothespin. I added some ink and flowers and voila-a recipe holder that's perfect for my kitchen.
Next, I used a mix of the papers to make flowers for this batch of ATCs. Sweet, little spring treasures to trade with friends. I love the wood grain papers that come with this set. The red polka-dotted paper made me swoon too.

And finally, I made this sweet little gift basket to be filled with goodies for a friend. I hope you enjoyed this morning's eye candy and don't forget to leave comments along the way to be entered to win a 
$20.00 gift certificate

love all your creations, especially that basket!

Stacey said...

Great happy spring goodies! IDEA::Fill up the triangles (1/4 of box) & make it into a raffle piece for a baby/bridal shower & put different goodies in each part ( EX: 1. raffle/lotto tickets held together with decorated clothes pin 2. gift cards for gas, supermarket, mall, restaurant, local hobby store:)....3. Bath products (body wash, lotion, spritz, aromatherapy, foot scrub..) 4. luxury gifts (gift card for spa, mani, pedi, massage...) stick the cards into shea butter infused socks/gloves). This sound like such a good idea I think i'm going to make one for my cousins bridal shower!! Thanks for the inspiration!!

Jessica said...

O.K., I'm feeling really out of it...... I have NO IDEA what an ATC is?!!! Help! I would love to get a pattern to make the cool box at the bottom of the blog. Do you know where I could get it? It is the one where the triangles tie together up at the top. Thanks!

Sharon said...

What a great idea! Our store uses a giant clothespin during their classes for us to refer to. I can definitely see it decorated like yours. In fact, where did you find this clothespin. I would love to have this to hold my samples at home.

I'm loving the gift basket . . . maybe I could scraplift it and use it as a "May Day" basket. Hmm, something to think about. As for the other 2 projects, I love both of them. The clothespin/recipe holder would makes a great gift idea and the ATCs . . well, they are also going into my "scraplift" pile. Thanks so much for sharing! (I've also became a follower . . . looking forward to seeing more.)
