Pile It On! #126 - Hearts on Fire

Dear scrappers,

There is a new challenge at Pile It On:


The theme this fortnight at Pile It On is Hearts on Fire (Hearts, Fire, or Red/Orange Color Scheme, Chinese New Year of the Fire Rooster, etc.) Have fun with the theme!

We're sponsored by Pink Gem Designs, and one lucky participant (chosen from challenges #126 & #127will win 2 digi stamps/card toppers of their choice! The Top Picks for this challenge will be announced on February 26 and the Prize Winner will be announced on March 12.

Here is my project,

A combination of upcycling/recycling and a minialbum:

I made both for my children's school Gala. For the basket of our classroom, which was a massage package and some jewelry both donate by the other room mom.

Here are my supplies, from a swirlydoos monthly kit and first I wanted to use the Graphic 45 box displayed here, but I change my mind:

 I ended up suing these dies instead:

 The box is from a Prada perfume gift set, which had that ribbon already:

 I used some of the Prima flowers included in this kit to add some shine and texture to the box., as well as the heart chalkboard toothpicks.

I wrote down  the title of the basket: Beauty  and Bling:

This is the final Result.

Here with the mini album besides it and jewelry displayed:

The second part of this project is the mini album: ( I will have a Snapguide ready to explain the details of this project.)

Here the inside pages with the open hearts or closed as envelopes:

Here the back cover with my signature stamp:

Again both. And the final basket as was sent to the Gala:

And the back:

I hope you enjoyed this pkrohcts and come back to see the link to my Snapguide.
Many blessings
Vicky Tovar
