LO's and tin posted

I made a lunchbox tin last week at the crop to keep my Christmas cards in
that I am making for Lynne's challenge. I posted it in webshots in 'Lynne's
2008 Card Challenge Album'
I also posted some of the LO's I finished last week at the crop. They are in
my 2008 Layouts Album.
Thanks for looking,

Love that tin! Thanks for the description on the page as I was marveling at the stars I wondered how you punched a hole in the tin. I used the crop-a-dile to do all the eyelets on my Feb cards. I'm trying to use it more and not be as afraid of it. hahaha
Where did you get the lunchbox tin?

Thanks. I need to learn to use mine better. I know that I can use the screw things on the sides to set the depth of the punches, but didn't take time so the holes are not all exactly the same. They sell them at Michaels. Sandy

Great tin and pages! I have the same paper you used on the LO with all the words on it where he is swinging. That is a creative way to use it! I've been saving that paper for just the right layout. I usually take papers like that and disect them to cut out each word but the way you used it is a great idea!

Great job on your tin. I love the stars. I think one of my next tools is that crop-a-dile. Thanks for sharing.

Glad you liked it. The LO was from a challenge from the LSS club. We had to do a LO with a border of words. Thanks, Sandy

Thanks, Tammy. I loved the Christmas paper, too. It reminded me of my Christmases as a child. Some of the ribbon came from the Christmas box from April and Dave. Sandy

Thanks, Cathy. They were some I had had in my stash for a while and just couldn't cut into. I figured this way I could see it all the time as the tin sits on my shelf. Sandy

Thanks, Shannon. I love the crop-a-dile. I had heard about using it to punch in tins and decided to give it a try. I seem to use it for about everything else. I'm just not sure about the bigger one, mainly due to it's size. The regular one did gromments in the canvas I hung in the daycare playroom. I figure if I need to get into the center of a page for some reason I will just get out the old standby punch and hammer. Sandy

I went to Michael's yesterday and mine didn't have any tins of any shape. The ladies there also didn't know what I was talking about. So, I frisked Michaels down thinking I'd find them and didn't. Well pooh! I guess I'll check out Joanne's and then maybe look online. BUT in the Valentine 80% off section they had a large foam mailbox (for kiddie Valentine cards), but it's big enough I thought I'll get the red and white one and use it for my Christmas cards until I find something else. It was $1.50. It will hold several months of Christmas cards. I really want a tin though. I'll keep looking.

) I checked their store and they don't carry them right now. I paid $5 each for them plus shipping. Then I saw them at Michaels for around $4. ebay has them, but the shipping will get you
