Club Scrap London Calling Blog Hop!

0215_blog hop photo 0215_blog hop_zpsrabbbjdv.jpg


Welcome to the February Blog Hop celebrating Club Scrap's London Calling kit! If you arrived from Shona's Blog then you are in the right spot. If not, hop over to Karen's blog post at Club Scrap to see what she has created and for a complete list of participating bloggers.


I picked up the Stacked Box Project Components last month from Club Scrap and decided to create it using this month's kit. I love the color palette and it worked perfectly with papers from the Pattern Basics pastels pack. This text weight paper with its distressed prints made covering the boxes a breeze.


Small box inside.
As I previewed my post I realized that my project needed a companion, so I found inspiration HERE on Pinterest and created this tag.



I absolutely adore working with paper to create flowers and other adornments for my art. If you are interested in how I created it, scroll down to the bottom of this post for details.

Thanks for stopping by and your next stop on the hop is Wendy Bellino!

*************************************************

London Calling Digital Hybrid Tag Instructions:

1. Use the London Calling Digital Kit and a digital scrapbooking application (I use iScrapbook) to create artwork for the tag.




2. Print out the 5x7" artwork onto matte sticker paper (I used Staples brand).


3. Cut the images apart using a trimmer.


4. Trace a shipping tag shape onto a piece of Ivory plain paper from the collection.


Don't forget to punch the hole.
5. Use a craft knife to trim out the frame, London is calling, and Big Ben images.



6. Tear three edges of the script panel and adhere to the tag.


7. Adhere the frame, Big Ben and London is calling stickers to the tag.


8. Make the gray postage stamp using the image from the UM Borders and Backgrounds collection and Ash ink. Add color with water color pencils.


I added an old postage stamp from my grandmother and stamped with image from the Post Art Project 2010 Club Scrap Retreat.
9. Create flower embellishments using a selection of daisy punches (I used Fiskars, Recollections, and Martha Stewart). Cut leaves and twigs from Sizzix with Die Cut machine.


10. Add ribbon and metal crown to complete the tag.


Finished projects.
