Altered heart tin

German Phrase of the Day: Meine Tante kann gut Geschichten erzaehlen. = My aunt can tell good stories. Which is true...and her stories are so good because they are often how she got me some AWESOME Barnie's Santa's White Christmas decaf coffee for FREE! (which is what I"m drinking right now...YUM!)

I made this tin for her while in Floriday, but forgot to show you all! It's one of those cool large heart tins from Papertrey Ink, and I covered it with last year's SU! Valentiney paper. I followed Debbie Olson's instructions for cutting otu the top, and I think it turned out pretty well. Mom only had an empressor stylus, but I think it worked ok. I used some teal velvet ribbon from the retired Flirty ribbon originals around the lip of the lid, and lastly I stuck on an organdy flower I had picked up at Joann's because I thought it was pretty. Worked perfectly for this piece.

My friend and fellow prettie girl Joanne had made some cute tins where she stamped on the center part...and I really liked that. But...since I had just gotten my rub-ons I thought those might work even I went to town! It was sooooo easy, and I think it turned out great! You can't really see it all that well because of all the M&Ms inside...but I think it's from the SAB set and says "A Small thing done in Great Love is a Great Thing." I like that one!

I didn't film my cards from yesterday with So Hoppy, and there isn't a lot of light this morning so I'll try to take photos later this afternoon. Last night I sat and "mounted" 6 new SU! sets (that means I put the stickers on the back, cut them out, then applied my tack it again and again to them - I really do miss wood sometimes!) while watching Grease. I love that movie, and it's a great one to watch while doing something else because I don't have to actually WATCH the movie, I can mostly listen to it. Maybe I should try listening to it in German...see how much I understand yet! :-)
