Fun flower pots

Hello it's Jane here today from Jane's Journal with my second DT project for this month's "Pimp it up" challenge. This time I decided to turn an ordinary flower pot into something  much more interesting and fun using stamps, paints and inks.
I have a step by step over on my blog here with lots more photos of how my very brown, very ordinary terracotta flower pot got its metamorphosis. 

Bye for now,

A little bit of recycling !

Hello everyone,

and welcome to my second project for the April Challenge that is "Pimp it up". I decided on using a piece of a card board box to make a tag.

After I cut the tag (Using a knife and a hole punch) I stripped off some of the paper so the corrugation became visible. I filmed everything after that. 
I hope you'll visit my blog HERE or you can hop over straight to YouTube HERE

Why not play along with us ! You might just win a voucher for the shop ! 

Thank you for stopping by today ! I'll be back soon !

Pimp That Binder

Good morning and happy Friday 13th! Here's my second project for this month's fun challenge, after all you can never have too much storage.

This is an A4 kraft ring binder, and it's been falling off the top shelf for about a year now, so I thought it was time that I did something with it! Please join me over on my blog for more pictures. 
Don't forget - no walking under any ladders today!
