CUSTOM CROPS MYSTERY BOX CHALLENGE REVEALED!!
I can finally reveal what was contained in the Mystery Challenge Box from Custom Crops!! All the designers received 7 items that we had to use to create a project. They included a small box of cereal, Grafix Shrink Film, Sizzix embossing folders (there were 3 but we got to choose which we wanted to use), a mini gel pen holder, a set of gel pens, German glitter glass, a sheet of Jillibean Soup Kraft paper and a plastic knife, fork and spoon. Perhaps I was hungry when I saw the cereal and plastic utensils because the first thing that came to mind was a Christmas recipe album!!! I had used all these items, or something similar over the years, except for the mini gel pen holder and so I couldn't wait to try it. I have to say it was easy to use and I love it!! I did one test run and only had to make a small adjustment (the pen definitely needs to be all the way up in the holder). My next try is what you see on page one of my album.
here and it will take you to my complete project at Custom Crops where there are lots more pictures, detailed directions and free .cut files so you can make this album if you'd like. I have to say this was soooo much work, yet it was soooo much fun to do and I hope you'll leave comments both here and at Custom Crops...they are very much appreciated by all the designers! And please check out all the other designer's projects...they are amazing!!!
