I made this little tin of BH sketches from a Camel cigarette tin. I love the way it came out, and it's great to just toss in my bag for when I go to crops.

i love it.
i got this obsession with little boxes and thingies that you can keep thingies inside.  but what is BH sketches?  and what do you mean by "go to crops?"  my english is pretty good, but i cant say i've ever heard those terms...

Oh no prob!  Smiley BH stands for Becky Higgins. She's a famous scrapper who has written a couple books on scrapbook sketches. A crop is where you go to meet up with other scrapbookers to work on your stuff.  Grin

That tin looks amazing... and what a great way to collect your favorite sketches!

I think I'm going to have to try something similar... if only I could decide which are my fave sketchs! LOL!

You can actually fit a ton of them in there - the one that I have has about 50 little sketches in it....and that's just on the front of the small accordion album!

I printed them as pages of thumbnails. At first I was just going to put them as a full page in a binder, but they turned out to be the perfect size for a mini album. I LOVE altered items so that's pretty much how I came up with the idea for the tin. Smiley

this is lovely Smiley

I never really think that much into page layouts... but then I haven't made a real scrapbook page since I was about four! (gummy sweets are still stuck in there. that's how sophisticated I am.)

well done! the composition on the front of the tin is really spot on.

oh and ps. where does your signature quote come from? I really like it  Wink

Thanks!! It was a lot of fun to make.  Grin

And the quote in my sig line is from a song by my favorite band, the Pushstars.  The song is called Shy, off of one of their first albums, Meet Me at the Fair.
