All Jacked Up Blog Hop



Welcome to the ‘All Jacked Up in June’ Blog Hop. You should have started your ‘jacked up’ journey at http://www.shortnscrappy.com/. If you have arrived from http://www.glitterstampsandpaperohmy.com/ , then you are not on some ‘jacked up’ blog trip, you are actually on the right track!


Our themed projects for this hop could be altered ‘jacked up’ items, projects made from ‘jacked up’ scraps, or anything cocktail related.


I chose to share two projects with you. One project is one that I will be using in my classroom and the other is a birthday card that I made for my Dad!


For my first project I took an empty Lysol wipes container and did my best to modify it to look like an Elmer's Glue Stick. Right now this project is still pretty plain so I would love some feedback on what I could add to it to make it a little more appealing for first graders to want to use. I think they are going to want to put thier empty glue sticks, which our school can earn some money for, in the container regardless but I'd love to make it just a little more appealing! :)

The glue bottle is cut from Locker Talk and I hand wrote the words


I didn't think that my stop on this hop would be complete without making SOMETHING related to the cocktail aspect of the "jacked up" interpretation. Unlike me, my dad enjoys a nice cold beer every once in a while so I thought that this card would be PERFECT for him. I used the Smiley Cards cartridge and my gypsy to make this shaped card! To get the dripping beer effect on the card I used one of my cuttlebug border folders. I think it turned out great!







A blog hop is not complete without having some candy available. Although I do not have a picture of what I am offering up, one lucky commenter will receive some surprise blog candy from me for leaving myself and all of the other stops some love!


Thanks so much for stopping by!!! Your next stop is http://www.katieoscreations.blogspot.com/. If you get ‘jacked up’ and lose your way, please visit http://www.shortnscrappy.com/ for the complete lineup.


Until next time...

Cute ideas, I think the glue container is sweet just the way it is. It would also be nice to use it in the classroom to store the glue sticks..
