Tomorrow is the big day

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!


  1. I LOVE the frame on this cart! I have used it many times! Cute project!

    Can't wait for tomorrow's hop to begin!!
