Today kicks off Day 1 of TCP's Sneaky Peek Week in preparation for a new release next Tuesday, January 10th (or technically, Monday night after the Pajama Party over at SCS.) Today's Sneaky Peek set is called Gimme Some Sugar, featuring Sprinkles and a build your own candy/kissing booth! Can't get any sweeter, can it?! Check out Alma's blog for everyone showing off today's set!
I incorporated a couple of things that I've seen here and there and have been meaning to try. First up is box pleating. Seriously, I'd never tried it before, so I did like I always do and 'googled' it for step by step directions. I had to fiddle with the measurements to get the look I wanted, but my fiddling was worth it in the end. I actually used scrap paper to fiddle with rather than wasting precious patterned paper...perhaps I'm getting older and wiser?
I mixed and matched remnant hearts (from another lover-ly CutUps die being released) for each section of the banner after making a cross hatch pattern with a fine tip marker to mimic the burlap in the TCP Tuesday Inspiration photo. You can check it out over at Jen's blog because she's our hostess this week.
Mojo Monday Sketch #222!
I'll leave you with a peek at the entire Gimme Some Sugar set as well as a peek at the Queen of Hearts border CutUps die that I also used today.
