cleaning {and hopping!} with PTI




So this is how my project started.... I've been needing a more convenient way to clean my toilets... yes, I said it. It's true! I've switched over to using straight up vinegar and baking soda for toilet bowl cleaning, but using just a little plastic cup to sprinkle both around the inside of the bowl just hasn't been working the best. In comes these two old canisters. The old dish liquid container is perfect for squirting the vinegar, and the cinnamon container will be perfect for sprinkling the baking soda!


Enter the PTI stamps, some DP, ink... and this is how my project turned out! I'm joining in on their January 2011 Blog Hop {my first PTI hop ever!} and their theme is to use a set that you haven't, if ever, used... well ALL of my sets are brand new and thus barely used! I whipped out the All Booked Up and 2009 Holiday Tags. Something that I DID use that was collecting dust was my Mod Podge... yup, believe it or not, this is my first time using it!! I have TWO bottles and never used them yet... so since none of my stamps were collecting dust, I kept with the theme of the hop and used my dusty Mod Podge ;)

Anyhoo, I wanted to keep this project pretty flat, so no 3D embellies, but I did layer on the stamps! There's three PTI stamps in there and then the letters :) I would have loved to dress it up a bit more, if it were a card, but I'm pleased with the results!

I love the phrase- although intended for Christmas time, I think it works perfectly for my cleaning supplies... a reminder to keep a "merry" attitude whilst making everything "bright" and sparkly clean ;)

PS. I know I can't spell, lol.

  9. Those containers should make cleaning a little more fun (or less tedious?!) Great job on combining those 2 sets and the colour choice is just perfect!

  13. I honestly never expected a toilet cleaner for the blog hop. You win the prize for the most unique project! That said, I love the labels you made. You used several great stamp sets and turned something ugly into something beautiful. I still don't want to clean toilets, though.
