Life is Good - May Spotlight Blog Hop

Welcome to our CTMH product spotlight blog hop!  If you are just starting out, or if you have arrived here from Luisa's blog, you are in the right place.  When you're done here, you'll hop along to Nikka's blog and see what fun project she has for us.

This month we are featuring our metal accessories.  You can find most of them on page 127 of the current Spring/Summer Idea Book.  I thought I would use a few different little bits on a fun 3-D project.

I made this great little house from one of our new Milk Cartons.  I had seen some done up as bird houses, but I thought a real house would make a great gift box for a house warming gift card to Lowe's or someplace similar.  Here's a view from the other direction:

The metal clip on top comes with the box (they come in a set of 2).  Slide it over and the box opens like, you guessed it, a milk carton.  I used the following featured metal accessories:
  • Filigree Charms - in the triangle section at the top.  It reminded me of a decorative attic vent.
  • Pin Clips - on the left side in the top photo.  I used it to hold a sweet little yard sign.
  • Mini-Medley Accents Pewter - on the front door.  I used a standard sized brad for a door knob.
I also used these other fun CTMH products to make this:
  • My Creations Milk Carton
  • Stella paper pack
  • Clear Sparkles (windows)
  • 3-D foam adhesive tape
  • Treetops stamp set (discontinued)
  • A Rainbow stamp set (the little bird in the tree)
  • Exclusive Inks stamp pads in Olive, Cocoa, and Lagoon
  • Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge - for the little sign in the yard
  • Bakers Twine, Paradise Assortment
Other products used:
  • Cricut Expression
  • Plantin Schoolbook Cricut cartridge (for grass)
Thanks for stopping by today!  I hope you enjoyed my project idea.  Now don't forget to hop along to Nikka's blog.  I'm sure she has a great project in store for us! Pin It
