TIC TAC TOE

3 in a row!


Welcome to the Scraps to Treasure 
Tic Tac Toe Blog Hop.  



Today's hop started with Cicily.  If for some reason you arrived here first please hop back to Cicily so that you don't miss out on anything important.

Our group leader has blog candy for a random hopper who commented on all blogs on the hop.  It is the Close to My Heart stamp set shown here:



For our hop this month we are to use our scraps and stash and choose a row from the tic tac toe board to create a project to show off!  

Here's the board:



I opted to make a card using the diagonal row Butterflies, Tag, Ribbon.

I used some pretty patterned paper with butterflies, trimmed a shipping tag down to fit, cut a greeting, inked up the edges of my tag and added a pretty ribbon.



This was such a simple quick card I opted to choose another row and create another card.  This time I chose the bottom horizontal row Buttons, Mist or Paint, Ribbon.

I started with a striped patterned paper.  I applied some Lime Twist Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist to it.  I added a pleated white ribbon on top.  To that I added a greeting cut from my sheet.  I cut a second greeting, mounted it on a scrap of white cardstock and inked the edges.  I found two small white buttons in my button box to add to the sides of the ribbon and another simple card completed!



Here's the line-up for the entire hop:

  8. Paula, very sweet! I would've chosen the diagonal you did, too! I could totally see, tho, how one would want to challenge themselves to try each and every combo. :-) TFS!
