myStampBOX goodies and a Studio Calico bag...

What? Yup, you heard me right...myStampBOX goodies and a Studio Calico bag!

I have ordered a few Studio Calico kits here and there and I normally I put these 12x12 bags in the recycling bin but this time I set it on my desk and it kept talking to me, telling me "make me into something" and when I saw the challenge this week over on their blog, I went for it. AND I used some of the new American Crafts Dear Lizzy I got over at Scrapgal.

I turned it upside down, added some closures and just went from there....I explain it below with the detail shots....


Here is a detail of the myStampBOX stamp right on the photo with some Stazon Ink.


I had these little peg things that I used for the wall mount. I adhere the Pink Paislee Chipboard piece {from one of the alpha set I used below} and used my Crop-a-dile to punch a whole through it and the bag. Then I painted the peg "thingy" and added some Glitter to it and stuck it through the whole for the mount.


Here, I used another Studio Calico bag that I had and ran it through my Cuttlebug with a Spellbinder's die for the scalloped flowers. I used Helmar Adhesives for these, too.


And here is the hive that I used some Core'dinations Black Magic Cardstock and a Cricut Cartridge...some Shimmerz on the wooden buttons....
