Father's Day Project for Studio V

Hello all! Thought I'd share a fun little project with a Father's Day theme. I made this for Studio V's Hands2Hearts Challenge for June.

Any man can be a father. But it takes someone special to be Appa (dad).

I was waiting for an opportunity to use the chevron background from Lawn Fawn and I love it in this project. I love the rough, distressed look it created. And I've been smitten by this colour combo - turquoise, coral and amber. Wanted to put them together somewhere! I created this fun little (upcycled) remote caddy with a matching card. I used one of Little Miss' empty formula tins that I've been hoarding for a while now. (By the way, those formula tins are great for upcycled projects. I'm currently working on another fun project using the tins, stay tuned).
So, I created some pattern paper using the chevron background stamps, wrapped it around the tin and secured with glue. Then I finished it off with some raffia twine and a little tag with a cheeky sentiment! The card was very easy to put together since I already had the colours picked out. A 5x5 card base in white, some more stamping and a simple little banner for the sentiment - easy! 

Go on and make something for that special man in your life who loves you, guides you and inspires you. And enter your creation in the Hands2Hearts Challenge for a chance to win some yummy goodies. You even have a chance to get 15% off purchases at ScrapKorner if you're among the top 5. So head to Studio V, look at the DT's projects for inspiration and get started with your own.

Will be back soon with some projects I'd love to share once I'm done. Oh by the way, if you read my previous post, I'm very pleased to say that I figured out what the matter was with me. My craft room was a big, humongous mess! I recently cleaned it and straightened it out a bit and what a difference that made! Husby even exclaimed at the floor space that he could actually see, ahem. So lesson learnt - I work well when I'm organised. How much simpler can the truth be? Sigh. 

Happy Crafting!
