Sizzix Triple Play Blog Hop Week 6: Album, Brackets


Good morning, Sizzix Blog Hoppers (as well as my blog friends!). Welcome to Week 6 of the Triple Play Blog Hop. This morning, all 60 of us are showing what we've done with Brenda Pinnick's Album, Brackets die. I wanted to create something that was a little different that its original use, but wanted to keep it simple, so I ended up with a fun holiday banner.

Since the shapes already have a hole in the corner to bind the album, this was a very simple task! I hung this in my butler's pantry doorway and used Ripe Avocado and Scarlet Jewel (ink, ribbon and paper) from Papertrey Ink. The sentiments are all from Big & Bold Holiday Wishes and the embossing powder is Silver Zing from American Crafts. That fun, festive border is a stamp from Background Basics: Christmas.


This Album Brackets die from Sizzix makes for a quick & simple banner - I did this one in about 30 minutes! You could hang one in every doorway of your house in no time flat!

Enjoy the rest of the hop today! The Sizzix Blog has the master list of participants, and the magical widget on my right margin allows you to follow along forward or backward. Have a great day - be well!
