Hi Stampers! Can't believe it's time for our next release! So excited to bring you some new images that have been in the works for awhile now. The next image in our kids with pets series is Li-Li! Li-Li has been hanging out waiting for her turn to be released for quite some time now, and her turn has finally arrived!
As a kid, I was drawn to pandas... not really sure why I liked them but I recall liking them more than your average bear. Pandas were not that popular when I was growing up, so I was happy to see them become popular now!
I was so happy to receive this image from my sis! Doesn't every girl want her very own panda? Since this cutie is dressed in Chinese clothes, I decided to give her a Chinese name. Hmmmm... already named two images after my nieces, so those names were out. Then it donned on me that my sister-in-law who is Chinese must have a Chinese name right? So I asked her what her Chinese name is.... to my surprise, her Chinese name is actually her American name! I totally did not know that "Lilly" was the American version of her real name which is Li-Li. Love it! And that's how Li-Li got her name...
Now that you know a little bit more about how Li-Li got her name.. on to the project! I am still on my You Tube addiction and stumbled on Bona's (Live Love Scrap) innovative use of Tim Holtz dies, or any dies for that matter! Now when I first saw this "Tick Tock" die by Tim Holtz, I thought to myself... who would want that die? For one thing, it's big. Only good for scrapbook layouts. Secondly, what would I do with an alarm clock? Then I saw Bona's project that turned the alarm clock into a shaker/shadowbox! She's so smart yah? Thanks Bona for all the inspiration!
So I finally got my hands on that alarm clock die and came up with this shaker...
In order to accomplish the deep shaker, I cut multiple layers of chipboard using the Tick Tock die. Then adhered them together and sealing it off with some acetate. Before closing it up, I added in some cherry blossoms from Wild Orchid Crafts, gold dew drops and an asian coin from my stash. The background paper used was from the Graphic 45 Bird Song collection- totally my favorite of the set!
Here's a closer look at Li-Li...
