Stay until the end to enter the Blog Hop Giveaway!

First, Lori has this amazing project using Home Sweet Home that we all want to make for our kitchen! Check out her tutorial below.

"My sister is always over at my house and I’ll hear her ask 'Are your dishes clean or dirty in the dishwasher?' I thought it was about time I took care of her on going question with this adorable soap box set. I bought a magnet with a hook to go on the front of my dishwasher and I’ll just turn the tag/sign to show what the dishes are on the inside. I figured it would be a shame not to include the soap box too, so I covered it with the Home Sweet Home collection also. Join me on a Snapguide Tutorial and I’ll show you how to create this durable clean/dirty sign with the beautiful Spellbinders daisies to adorn it." ~Lori

"A pretty little shadowbox, a dainty fairytale stage, made with Precious Memories and Spellbinders dies. The die cut pieces are layered to create an ornate archway, framing the wee winged dancer. I’ve cut the die-cut pieces to fit my need. Remember, never be afraid to trim, cut, fold, bend, paint or do whatever it takes to make your project work for you. There is no ‘wrong way’ :)" ~Nichola
