FANCY PANTS AND ADD A LITTLE DAZZLE BLOG HOP BANNERIt’s time for Day 1 of the  Add a Little Dazzle and Fancy Pants Designs Blog Hop!  We have some amazing inspiration for you showcasing the beautiful patterned paper by Fancy Pants Designs accompanied with Add a Little Dazzle Craft Metal Sheets.  This week you will see an assortment of ideas that will BLOW your mind away.

So after you check out all the AWESOME projects here at Add a Little Dazzle, make sure to head on over to Fancy Pants Designs for more inspiration.

monica 1I am excited to share my project with you today. As I mentioned last week, I pulled out my new fun gadget and got busy creating.  The Oh Deer Collection Kit was the perfect paper to use with my Silhouette and so I created this really easy cupcake box using it.  The fun part was that I was able to personalize it and change it to create the look I wanted.  Furthermore, I didn’t want to use it for a cupcake but for one of my favorite gifts to give during this time of year a Sugar Scrub or Foot Soak.

monica 2As you can see the inside of this cupcake box had the perfect place to hold this small mason jar that I metal embossed with Golden Glimmer Craft Metal Sheet.  In addition, I added a strip of Scarlet Red Craft Metal Sheet along the bottom of the box to hold the base together. Then, I created the beautiful Metal Embossed Poinsettia that coordinates with the Oh Deer Collection Kit using my Silhouette. That’s right! I ran Add a Little Dazzle Craft Metal Sheets through the Silhouette and cut out these fun pieces.

I will be sharing the Peppermint Foot Soak recipe to fill this small jar along with instructions on how to create this box in another post. This means that some days I will double post.   I invite you to SUBSCRIBE HERE to my feed and you will receive and email when my blog is updated. This way you will stay up-to-date on the tutorials that will be released.

LYDIA WALKERLydia Walker created this adorable mini gift bag using the Me-Ology Collection Kit from Fancy Pants Designs and accompanied it with Baby Blue Craft Metal Sheet. This combination was perfect for this super sweet bag that is perfect for that small gift not only for the holiday season but year ’round.

Make sure to stop by Lydia’s Blog for more details about her project and leave her some love with a comment.

KEREN BAKERKeren Baker had fun with the Me-Ology Collection Kit.  Check out how she added a touch of craft metal sheets to the skirt and shoes in the card. I love the creativity of the Pucker Me Pink skirt and Golden Glimmer Craft Metal Sheet shoes. Talk about thinking outside of the box.  This is a fun card!

Make sure to stop by Keren’s Blog for more details about this fun card and leave her some love with a comment. 

LEE ANNE CROSSLee-Anne Cross also had the Me-Ology Collection Kit and decided to play around with it in a completely different way.  Instead of creating a traditional card with rubber stamps, Lee-Anne used pattered paper and Sticker Sheets to create this super fun card.

If you look at the center of the card, she took the back side of an Add a Little Dazzle Craft Metal Sheet (the aluminum side) and had it face the front so it looked like a mirror.  What a clever way to use the metal sheet and with the shine sentiment it is absolutely PERFECT.

Make sure to stop by Lee-Anne’s Blog for more details about this fun card and leave her some love with a comment. 

KATE CAPPERKate Capper used the Me-Ology Collection Kit and gave it a Holiday Twist.  The use of the Polka Dots with a non-traditional holiday color was the perfect way to turn this into the perfect ensemble for the upcoming holidays.  Kate created the Snowflakes from Wondrous White Craft Metal Sheets and the Stitched Snowflakes Die that is now available in the boutique. What a creative way to use what you have on hand. 

Make sure to stop by Kate’s Blog for more details about this fun card and leave her some love with a comment.

 You’ve got a whole week to hop, be inspired and win!
