Well here we are back again with the Happy Handy Hippo posts after the Christmas break. A rather belated Happy New Year to all from myself and everyone at Handy Hippo.
I would hate you to think I have been sitting about doing nothing though whilst I was away on a break.. .. .. so to prove I was still busy playing and creating I worked on a special little project for you .. .. but beware .. .. it involves photo overload!! LOL!!!
|This is my little project - 4 little notelets with|
|and they all store in this little box made using|
a scoreboard and decorated using the stamp set
and distressed backing paper
|This is the first little notelet which is was decorated|
in the same way as the storage box .. .. simply
by stamping and distressing with distress inks and
adding a narrow decorative border using a
Martha Stewart punch
|This notelet was decorated by making a patterned|
background for matting and layering onto using one of the
smaller stamps in the set and then stamping and painting the
main image using distress inks
|and here is my finished little box|
loaded up with all the little notelets and envelopes
This project was made using the following stamp set .. .. but because I haven't actually used the whole of either of the larger stamps on my project I thought I would show you them here .. .. they are so lovely and are selling out as quickly as they come back in stock.
aren't they gorgeous .. .. .. and they stamp beautifully too!
Below you can find the Handy Hippo magic button .. .. and if you click on it you can see all the lovely goodies I used to make this little project. Everything I have used has been automatically added to a shopping basket and as always you can remove anything you do not need (or add anything else you can't resist).
I hope you like my Christmas break project.
There was a prize giveaway on my blog during the break too .. .. . celebrating single Promarkers being available at Handy Hippo. Lots of you entered the prize draw and I wonder who the lucky winner will be?
Kerry, my lovely playmate at Handy Hippo, will be choosing a winner at random later today and I will post the name of the winner on my blog tomorrow. Then that lucky person can be working out which twenty colours they would like to receive!! Woo hoo!!!
Have a good Monday everyone and I will catch you again tomorrow.
and all the lovely friendly people at Handy Hippo
