Technique Blog Hop - B&T Embellishments

Welcome to our Technique Blog Hop!  This month we are highlighting the B&T Duos as Embellishments Technique as shown on page 21 in the Spring/Summer 2012 Idea Book!  This blog hop is a great big circle so you can start wherever you want and continue through to see all the fabulous artwork incorporating this technique. 

We would love to see what you’ve created using this month’s technique, please visit our challenge blog at where you can share your project and be entered in a chance to win great prizes.  You will also find a listing of all participants and their blog addresses if you should get lost or want to reference a blog along the way.  Let’s get started!

If you are coming from Michelle W's Blog, you are on the right track! 

Last September my husband and I celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary (boy does time fly). I've been wanting to make a special mini-album to celebrate the occasion and thought the floral accents on the back of the Roxie B&T paper would make a perfect embellishment for my album cover! To go along with the theme I also trimmed the zip strip on the top of another B&T paper to create a scallop accent. 

The cover features the 10 Things Pocket which holds a special pull-out tag which I'll share later. The numbered strips on the album sides represent each of our 10 years. I'm still working on the inside pages and will share those when they are complete.

Supplies used (all CTMH unless otherwise noted): 
Paper: Roxie Level 2 (X7140B), Black Cardstock
Stamps: Trinity Alphabet (E1021), March SOTM-Potential (S1203)
Ink: Tulip (Z2166), Black (44751)
Other: Board Book (retired), Cork Alphabet (Z1450), Bling Assortment (Z1466), Bitty Sparkles (Z1263), Black Embroidery Floss (Z1096), Black Grosgrain Ribbon, 10 Things Pocket (Z1412), Dimensional Elements Hearts (Z1735), Micro-Tip Scissors, 3D Foam Tape, Glue Dots, Liquid Applique, Sanding Block, Piercing Tool
