She writes: "I was going through my stash of items I keep around the house and came up with this idea. It's a Survival Kit to keep with me at all times when I have my grand-kids. I think it would be great to have at a restaurant to keep them busy while we wait for our food. My goal was to use at least one stamp from each one of your sets. I think I managed. Each image to be colored by the kiddo's is stamped on the back with "I made this just for you." so they can sign their art. I also included a few tic-tac-toe cards. "
Now I had thought about making some little sheets of paper to put in a tin with some crayons, but it had NOT occurred to me use some of the bajillion stamps images I have lying around to make mini coloring pages!! I just love this idea of hers, so cute! (and thought it was very clever to stamp the "I made this..." on the back.) :) Sharon used the retired Island Blooms SU! scrappin kit with adhesive trims and accents which made covering this tin using just the border label stamps and sentiments from What's In Your Tin?2 and the pages inside a breeze!
Next, CHECK OUT this really cool tutorial from Pamela Smerker sent me on how to stretch and shrink the border label images from the What's in Your Tin? sets! Genius! (I am unable to add a pic here so just check the link) She's made some other really cool projects on her blog using these sets, please check them out!(And if you might know WHY her blog seems to be frozen so that you can't open the comments or click on links, please email her through her blogger profile because she and I are both mystified! Takes a lot of joy out of blogging if people can't comment or ask questions about your stuff!)
Speaking of emailing me brilliant projects! WHERE is all your fabulous work with the tin sets? Don't you want some free stamps?? Or are you just waiting to vote? (The prize is bigger for the winning proeject!!) Come on, two weeks to get your entries in to me! I'm WAIT-ING...
Another "killing time" tin tomorrow using a scrappin kit, a card, and some more thoughts/updates on MAIL! :)
Have a great day!
