Technique Hop – Mix It Up!

Welcome to our Technique Blog Hop!

This month we are focusing on Mix It Up.   With every Idea book there is a fun Seasonal Mix In paper pack.  For this hop we can feature this pack or mix up different paper packs.  This blog hop is a great big circle so you can start wherever you want and continue through to see all the fabulous artwork. If you are coming from KATY TAYLOR’S Blog, you are on the right track!

I decided to focus on the Seasonal Mix In paper pack.

This pack features black and whites with Ballerina. I decided to use the Share the Joy thin cut as I am loving this set!!  The sentiment is from the Share the Joy – Bunches of Joy Stamp Set. For embellishments I used the Hello Pumpkin Shapes and the White Ribbon.  When I saw those cute black flowers in the Loose Crafty Sequins, I started to save them because I envisioned using just them in a shaker.  I know you are probably thinking I am crazy to have picked then out but I am so glad I did!

To make the mini-shakers I used last months Technique I showcased in using flip flaps to make shakers.  I used a flip flap and cut it to 1.25 x 1.25 inch squares. Then using the circles to help be the guide to place the foam tape.

Thanks for stopping by!  Please continue onto TERRY METZGER’S BLOG where you will find some additional artwork!  Be sure to leave a comment and let me know what you thought and happy hopping!

Happy Crafting!
