Linky Party at CropStop

It's time for a brand new challenge at CropStop, and you're invited to play along.  You can link up ANY project.  The only requirement is to use any product carried at CropStop, which is pretty much anything and everything in the crafting world.  Inks, stamps, dies, and so much more.  You will want to visit the CropStop store to see all that they carry, and then you'll know that playing along is super easy because most of what we use in our crafting is sold at CropStop.  One lucky person will win a package of goodies from CropStop.
My project was made using an old/repurposed package of Tim Holtz Paper Clips.  I traced the back to create a base, and then filled the empty space with some TicTacs.  I tied some Red Burlap String around the bottom, and decorated the top with some Tim Holtz and Maya Rod adage tickets and some sweet Petaloo Botanicals Burgundy Sugared Minis Flowers.  It's really a simple project, and makes a great gift.
I used the word "hope" on this gift so that I could give it to a friend who needs some encouragement right now.  By repurposing old packaging, you can create some really sweet projects.  CropStop makes it easy to decorate your projects.   Their selection of products is amazing.  Youre sure to find something you can use, and will love.

We hope that you will stop by and link up in our challenge.  There's also a special give-away taking place where you can earn extra entries into a drawing for a $20 Gift Certificate to CropStop.  Just invite your friends to link up in the challenge, and leave a comment.  Or, become a new follower and leave us a comment for that.  Someone will be blessed with this amazing prize, and we really want to spread the word that CropStop is a great place to shop for your craft supplies.

Have an awesome week, and don't forget to link up in the Linky Party at CropStop.

  4. I love this 3D project Karen!!! I had to check it out closer...flew in from NBUS ;)

  5. This is so clever - I love the idea of reusing / repurposing the packaging. I save some of my packaging as well as I think "surely, I can use this again..." So you have definitely got my wheels turning. I love the use of the tickets and the flower embellies. Such a simple message of hope that delivers a smile and message of happiness to the recipient!

  6. Great idea Karen and a lovely wee gift to give without the recipient feeling obligated to respond in kind. Beautifully finished project too.

  7. Super sympa, et si joliment présenté, biz
