For this weeks Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge the theme was "anything goes". That actually made it hard for me. If I have a theme of some sorts if gives me the spring board I need to get started :) I used scrap cardboard I get from work and I made the mini suitcase, it measures 3 3/4 x 4 1/4. I made a full size suitcase from a tutorial I purchased from Cathy Orta (amazing classes). If you ever decide to make a full size case just make sure you have TONS of adhesive, I went through a couple rolls of the red line tape. Regular snail adhesive just won't hold this project the way you want it to, so spend alittle more and get the red line tape.
I used 7 Gypsies paper for the suitcase and the mini album that goes inside. Wouldn't be a project of mine if it didn't also include something Tim Holtz :) All in all I think it turned out pretty cute .. I'm really hoping for a Top Three Blinkie this week .. fingers crossed. You can check out what the DT made by hitting the blinkie on the top right side of my blog .. it will take you right to their website. Thanks for visiting !
