By The Cute And Girly - December


It's the 1st of December and for the new challenge at By The Cute And Girly, Tammy wants to 'Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow.'  Our digi sponsor this month is The Paper Shelter who have some beautiful Christmas images to get everyone in the holiday spirit.

For my 1st project this month I've done battle with an old nut tin and created this snowy money box.
The background is made from printed papers accompany the digi image of the little girl and her kitten, called Warm In The Winter. I printed 2 to size using Word and then wrapped them around the tin, and there was the battle, printing them the right size.  It really shouldn't have been a problem and when I discovered where I was going wrong with the aspect ratio it took seconds to sort out, I was determined not to be beaten!
For the opposite side of the tin I printed off the Snowman digi and coloured all of the images with Copics.
To decorate the tin I used a new great value Sizzix snowflake die from the BasicGrey range, I got mine at Cutting Edge Crafts.
Added to that I used a few punched white pine branches and then went to town with the white snow applique and liquid pearls.  Here's how the top of the lid looks.
Here's the full list of sponsors for this month's By The Cute And Girly challenge:



Oh, and here's my tin as it started out, forgot I took a picture of that.
I'd like to enter the following challenges:
BasicGrey #58 - Lost and found (altered tin with BG snowflake die)
Try It On Tuesday - Transform a can

There's lots of ideas and inspiration for your snowy creations over at the By the Cute And Girly challenge blog and word has it that we are on the lookout for some new design team members too!
