Scor-Pal/Clearsnap Blog Hop



Welcome to my stop on the Clearsnap and Scor-Pal Summer Fun Blog Hop 2011!!

You should have arrived here from Daniela's blog, if not be sure to go back to the start at Clearsnap so you don't miss a single spot on the hop!

Our lovely Design Teams have created some wonderful summer fun projects with
the Scor-Pal, brimming with inspiration and of course lots of Clearsnap inks! Visit each Design Team member's blog to see what inspiring projects they have to share. Leave a comment on each blog. We'll choose one winner from all of the comments posted to receive a prize pack from Clearsnap and
another from Scor-Pal.

For my Summer Themed project I chose to make a mini recipe box and offset gatefold card to save all those fabulous recipes you've collected over the Summer.
It would also be the perfect gift for a Blue Ribbon Winner at a County Fair!
As always I have a few challenges linked as well.

Challenges
AI Factory - Anything Goes
Paper Crafting Journey - Anything Goes
Thrilling Thursday - Anything Goes
Aud's Sentiments - Anything Goes
Craft Us Crazy - Anything Goes (3 entries only)
Crop Stop - Pearls (3 entries only)
Hanna and Friends - In The Kitchen
Happileigh Scrappin - Girlie


I used the following tutorial for a Mini Recipe box and added a handle.

Project Recipe:
Images - Tilda with Rolling Pin and Tilda Baking Cookies
Cooking Stamps - Stamps by Judith
Paper - K and Co Watercolor Bouquet
Medium - Copic Markers
Ink - Colorbox Espresso
Smooch Spritz - Vanilla Sugar, Cashmere and Ginger Ale
Flower - Wild Orchid Crafts
Border Punch - Martha Stewart
Stickers - Crafty Secrets
Pearls - Recollections
Ribbon - Unknown


I used the soft Espresso ink to stamp the little kitchen jars, the perfect color, not too harsh but clear and crisp.


The card is a super simple gate fold but just slightly offset so one "gate" folds over the other. I really like the versatility of this fold, you can make it just how you want it and very easily with the Scor-Pal.



I layered the Smooch Spritz's on the flower, giving a wonderful depth, lots of shimmer and the perfect color for my project.


Now you've seen my little project be sure to HOP ON OVER to Charlotte's blog to carry on with the fun!
Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to leave a comment!
Katie
