You’ve Got Mail Blog Hop

12370906_1076423485742037_8593387562599901650_oIt’s the 5th of the month and that means another Creative Circle Blog Hop!  Wasn’t Sandy’s project the bomb?!  (can you tell I’m a big fan of her work?)

This month, we are featuring a really cool 3D Mailbox that Liz designed!  I really had a lot of fun putting this one together – might just be my favorite of all that we’ve worked with!  Here’s my version along with some coordinating 1-5-16A


Might be my granddaughter’s newfound love of all things Mickey/Minnie Mouse that influenced me, but I started working with Melon Mambo cardstock, and the black/white polka dots from the Neutrals DSP stack just seemed like a natural match!  I used accents from Love Blossoms Embellishment Kit and stamps from the Bloomin’ Love set.  Here’s a closer look at the Mail Box: 1-5-16BThe lacy heart on the front is actually one of the foil heart doilies in the Love Blossoms kit that I turned over to the white side.  I stamped the heart from Bloomin’ Love in Rose Red, then sponged Melon Mambo over all – I really like the way it turned out!

This box actually has a secret compartment!  Not only does it open at the top like this… 1-5-16C




…The front flap opens as well giving you LOTS of room for card sets.  The back compartment holds three A2 sized cards and envelopes, the front (accessed by either the top or the front flap is great for smaller 3 x 3 cards/envelopes. 1-5-16D

Cool box, eh?  Would you like a chance to win the pattern and pre-cut material?  Leave me a comment to enter into the drawing!  On January 19th, one lucky person will be chosen at random to be the winner.  What’s that?  You don’t want to wait that long?  No problem!  The pattern can be yours today for $6.99 – head over to Liz’ online store to get your copy…
