Okay... So I'm a Little Nuts

Anyone who uses Google Reader is going to see a bunch of stuff twice. I tried to use six photos on one post, and the layout was so darned ugly that I deleted it. That was after two hours of trying to get it to look good. How do you spell perfectionist? Being a nut case about things that matter is okay. I'm not sure a less than perfect looking post would have mattered to anyone but me. Crazy.

Speaking of, I made this card and Nugget box for what I thought was a challenge. It turns out it was a contest that ended last night at 7 p.m. Oh well. It was fun anyway. The rules for the contest involved choosing two Page Plans sketches and making either two cards, two scrapbook layouts, or one of each. I came across a card sketch with a band across the center and a medallion in the middle - the perfect layout, I thought, for a Nugget box. I used my JustRite stamps for the medallion on the Nugget box. Once "conditioned," they work great and are so much fun.

Materials & Tools: Colonial White, Cocoa, Blush, Hollyhock, and Blush cardstock; Amore Level 2 paper packet; Chocolate, Hollyhock, and Tulip ink pads; CTMH Soul Mates stamp set; JustRite stamps; Tin; Hershey Nuggets; Spring Blossom Mini-Medley Accents Collection; Scalloped scissors; Cuttlebug w/Nestabilities Classic Circles set; Piercing tool; Sponge dauber; 3M foam mounting tape.

While I think they're a little out of vogue in stamping world (as in not the latest and greatest), I still like the little Nugget tins. Besides, I bought a case of them. LOL. I'll repost the rest of my projects (two at a time) in the morning . . . or later this morning after I've gotten some sleep. Enjoy!
