Tomorrow is the Shall we dance blog hop! I am so excited to be participating in my very first blog hop! I have been really working to make a great project for you guys so please be sure to stop back tomorrow. Oh, and there is going to be a little blog candy here tomorrow so make sure you check that out as well.
In the process of making my SWD hop project I fell in love with the frame cut and got the idea for another SWD project. This one is a quickie- not quite hop worthy, but I still loved it! I thought today would be a great time to share that extra SWD project with all of you!
I found a photo travel mug at my local target for $9.00. As I am planning on giving my sister in law a gift card to dunkin donuts as her stocking gift I thought this would be a perfect compliment to that gift. I simply traced the insert onto glitter paper for the background. I cut a strip of holiday paper to provide a "ring" around the cup. Then I put my Gypsy and Expression to work. I took the frame from SWD and using the hide contour feature created a small and then a slightly larger frame with no center cut out. I placed the two pieces together and added them to the base. The final step was to add her name. I did that using the elegant cakes cartridge and cut black vinyl. From there it was simply a matter of sliding the insert into the mug! SO SIMPLE!
