Altered Basics Blog Hop



Welcome to the Altered Basics Blog Hop! The Clearsnap Design Team is inking and altering our Basic Necessities, a variety of packaging materials and containers released at the CHA-W 2012 show in Anaheim, CA earlier this year. These "Basics" allow you to create custom inkpads, mix your own color combinations of Smooch Spritz and glitter, as well as provide a blank canvas for cute altered gifts, like the adorable tins our My First ColorBox Stamps are packaged in. You might recognize packaging from some of your favorite Clearsnap products like the salt shaker style jars from the Donna Salazar Designs Fairy Dust Glitter, an uninked ColorBox inkpad, and the Clear Boxes our Smooch Spritz Assortment Packs are packaged in. We think these Basic Necessities will allow your creativity to soar!

We're also excited about giving away a set of select Basic Necessities items as prize for one hop commenter! Just click on the blogs each day, browse through the post and check out the "Altered Basic", and then leave a comment about your favorite Basic Necessity to be entered to win.

For an extra entry, post the secret phrase "I love the Basics!" on our Facebook Page here: http://www.facebook.com/Clearsnap

We'll choose one winner from all of the comments on March 9, 2012!

Hi, Charlotte here and I want to share a couple of altered projects today. The first project is an altered bottle using Donna Salazar's Designs Fairy Dust Glitter bottle.  Turn a plain bottle into a beautiful keepsake.   This bottle is a quick and easy way to create a unique gift.  All you need to do is add a stamped image, some fancy trim, wire, chain or a charm, and instantly you have a treasured keepsake.

  7. What beautiful artwork you do! I am definitely a fan! Putting you on my list of faves! My heart skipped a beat when I saw the decorated bottle. How inspiring! I still like the uninked inkpad the best, but I am really liking the clear bottles as well.
