PTI Blog Hop Old is New...


From Nichole...
"With the new year comes a clean slate along with many resolutions.
This month's blog hop challenge Involves you challenging yourself
to use a Papertrey stamp set that has yet to see ink or even one that
might be collecting a little dust!

Go through your stash and see what little used treasure it might hold.
If you are in need of inspiration for your chosen set,
feel free to utilize the gallery posted in the side bar of
each set's sale page on our website,
or go to the Previous Countdown page on Nichole's blog where
each set is organized by month of release.
2011 is the year where what's old is new again!"

Seriously, I can't remember the last PTI Hop I posted to?? What a crazy life 2010 turned out to be. However, I am back and more CREATIVE then EVER so watch out;) Needless to say I had MANY dusty yet clean sets. I pull out last year's Anniversary set that has not even seen ink yet. Thought I better get on this before the next one arrives in a few months. Here is my project...



I just love these little gems of wood scrap I picked up. They look so very cute altered. I made a necklace that matches the recipient can remove that and they then have an altered piece of art.

I have shown in previous posts how to make these you can find more about them here...
