Altered Money Tin and Cosmo Cricket Week!

Hi Everyone
For the next few days I am going to be sharing a few projects I have made using the Cosmo Cricket Digital Collections. Some projects are all digital, some are "hybrid" and NONE are layouts!!


"Shoe Fund" Money Box


As a base for the tin (which I picked up at the $2 shop), I glued a base layer of Upcycle Re-Make 12x12 paper all around and then added a decorative strip cut from Upcycle Re-Design paper to add interest at the top. I added a sticker from the Girl Friday sticker sheet at the top and bottom and used the Girl Friday Digital Collection to create my "Shoe Fund" banner around the middle. 


I have just printed this strip onto plain cardstock - so can see how high quality the graphics are and how close the colours match to the physical collection products when printed out.


"Early Bird" Coffee Mug


I have always like the Early Bird Collection and now it is available on-line I can use it for heaps of things - such as this coffee mug!


I removed the sheet of paper that was inside, measured it as a base and then created my digital insert using various elements from the Early Bird collection.


I am no graphic designer (as you can probably tell) - and I have done this and all the projects this week - in Powerpoint :-0

  23. I'm a new follower, although I have been a reader in the past. Don't know why I don't stop by more often. I adore how you alter an item and make it new and fresh and fun. I am now off to see if you have a tutorial for those cards with the mints inside...too, too clever!
