Here are my projects for the hop. The first one is the Top Note Box. This church scene from MFP's Christmas in the Country is one of my favorites. I colored it with Copic markers in shades of gray and sponged the sky with Tim Holtz Distressed Inks Tumbled Glass and Chipped Sapphire. I wrapped some silver cord several times around the rectangular panel and added the sentiment, which I punched out with a Word Window punch.
You can make either two or four sections for the inside -- depending upon what you want to put in there. I attached the lid with a square piece of black vellum.
My second project is a Desktop Perpetual Calendar Box. The sentiment on the front is from an MFP set called Brick Wall, and I thought the Sizzix Bricked embossing folder would be a perfect complement. I finally got the "ink up the embossing folder" technique mastered, and I love the way it turned out. The flowers were made with a 3-piece Sizzix accordian-fold flower die set, which is also available from Mark's Finest Papers, a Heinrich Company.
The tutorial also includes the calendar pages.
Your next stop on the hop is Chris Dickinson, but just in case there are any hiccups, here is the whole list of celebrants on this Blog Hop!
