Crazy Crafters Blog Hop with Bibi Cameron



Time sure does fly, its time for another Crazy Crafters Blog Hop. Today we have the lovely Bibi Cameron joining us. For those of you that don't know, Bibi is a demonstrator from the UK. She not only has a blog for us to gain inspiration from but also has a YouTube channel in which she often shares tutorials and ideas. Thanks Bibi.

You may just be starting the blog hop here at my blog - Rosalie Desmond or may have come from the person previous to me.  Be sure to click on the person listed under me further down the page to continue your journey on this blog hop.

With so many projects to choose from, it was hard to decide which project I would focus on. One blog entry did stand out for me, a card she entered into a sketch challenge with TGIF using the Fairy Celebration stamp set. Bibi used aqua painters to water colour the image. Absolutely beautiful as you can see below.




Sometimes when we CASE, we are taken in whole new direction. This was one of those times.

My project today does not use water colour, nor does it use washi tape. It's not even a card.
So you may ask yourself, how was I inspired?

One of the elements that stood out for me when I looked at Bibi's card, was the pop of red on the cherries. I used this element and based today's project around it.




To create my box I simply cut out the box using my Big Shot. Stamped using versamark and heat embossed the image in Copper. I used a Real Red Stampin' Write marker to colour the cherries. Then I glued the box together and added some Real Red ribbon to make a bow on the handle.

Quick, simple but yet effective!





I just love these cute little boxes. Great for any occasion and so simple to put together.
