TSG Sneak Peek -- Card Bins

Hello everyone and welcome to There She Goes Sneak Peek and Blog Hop challenge!! If you came from Julie's blog, you're on a right track. If not, you may want to start from TSG blog for the fun event! Today's sneak peek is about the CARD BINS that are back by popular demands! These simple bins are so wonderful to alter and store cards - about 40 cards if the cards have lots of layers! At only $2 a piece, I'm sure you will have a lot of fun of altering and stamping with your own taste :)




I decided to make my own card organizer following with Jessica's wonderful tutorial.
After taping the edge with masking tape and painted with white acrylic paints over the entire bin, I adhered the retired SU papers that the images were stamped using Act of Kindness set. The papers & the inside of the bin were also distressed with chalk ink. Then The flowers with the decorative brad, the satin ribbon and the pearls were added on the front.

The index pieces were made with the same dp and the brown cardstock. The labels were made using various greeting stamps and the oval & scalloped oval punches.



So, do you want to win this fabulous card bin?
Just go to each of the Trendsetter’s Blogs and leave a comment on their Card Bin Blog Hop Challenge post. After you finish commenting, return to the TSG Blog to add your name to the Mr. Linky at the bottom of the Blog hop challenge post. A winner will be chosen randomly using a random number generator to receive their very own card bin. The winner will be announced Saturday during the Release Party Chat.

The next hop is a fun & fabulous Trendsetter, Wendy!
