Happy Birthday Top Tip Tuesday!




We are in full celebration mode this fortnight because Top Tip Tuesday is celebrating its 2 year blogaversary on September 7th!!! Can you believe it? Two years ago Leanne started this blog where crafters gather now from all over the globe to participate in bi-monthly challenges. A few months back Leanne decided to move on to explore other creative territory and Carol & Samantha took over as new co-owners. They have been fabulous to keep things running smoothly and very recently enlisted Lisa M. to help with the blog/design team coordination. I am blessed to be a part of this wonderful team and the camaraderie that I share with this talented group of ladies. Have I mentioned how funny they are? They keep me laughing and always stretch my creative boundaries. 

Our challenge is Birthday Theme and Bettina is our lovely hostess. She created a fabulous picnic box tutorial to share with you so be sure to drop by the TTT blog and check it out. It's adorable! To participate we are looking for gifts-wrapping/box/bag-or use an image of a gift. So simply make a gift, or use something that you would normally use if you were giving a gift like wrapping paper or box/bag. Naturally cards are always popular at birthdays and if you make one use an image of a gift on your card to qualify for the prizes. Ok, any questions just leave a comment for Carol, Samantha or Lisa M. on the TTT blog and they'll get back to you quickly. Ready, set, create and good luck everyone!

Images were provided for the design team by Meljen's Designs {thank you} and I used Cupcake Mouse for my gift tag image. I colored it with Copic markers and used Spellbinders Cl. Ovals & Lacey Ovals to die cut it. It's attached with Doodlebug Valentine twine and my gift box was a bargain find at Tuesday Morning for 49 cents. :D I've had this large birthday die cut sticker in my stash for a while so I was happy to finally put it to good use. Easy peasy! I'm entering this project in the The Paper Shelter-Anything GoesDiva's by Design-Anything Goes & City Crafter Challenge Blog-Bake Sale challenges.

 
 
Don't miss all of the inspiration our Special Guest, Dorte, and our C.O.E.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TOP TIP TUESDAY!
 
Hugs,
Lisa

Okay, I'm back and I didn't have break anything! L1 what a fantastic write up you've done in honor of TTT's 2nd birthday. :) I'm still so happy you are with us and can bring in another fantastic year. Your gift box is not only festive, but completely versatile for so many OTHER holidays and events too. I really like this idea very much.
Super job my friend!
hugs,
