The Cutting Cafe Blog Hop

28 Aug

It is the end of the current design team’s term at The Cutting Cafe and we are celebrating with a blog hop today! That is great news for you!  Not only do you get to go from blog to blog of our fabulous design team and see lots of great and inspiring projects, you also get a chance to win the files that are used to make the projects!  Just leave a comment on the blogs to be eligible for the drawing.

My project features the Suitcase Mini Book file.  Please leave a comment below and I will randomly select a winner on Saturday (have comments made by noon central time) to receive the file!  How exciting is that?!  If you are hopping along in order, you should have come here from Lisa Minckler’s blog.  If not, head to the beginning of the hop with Regina Easter’s blog.  Just in case you get lost, follow the order below:

Regina Easter – Begin Here!

Now here is my project…

Suitcase Mini Book Altered Frame

Suitcase Mini Book Altered Frame

I have created an altered picture frame using the Suitcase Mini Book to add more photos (there are five pages under the decorated cover of the suitcase).  I used K & Company’s Around the World by Brenda Walton paper and embellishments.  I added my own sentiment, which I punched out with a scalloped square punch.  The corners and handle also come in the file.  The straps come in the file also, but I did not use them, instead using a snakeskin pattern ribbon.  I used tiny flat back pearls as the rivets and framed pearl brads to hold all the pages together at the handles.  This was a fun project!  Here are a couple more views…
