Gearing Up- Guest Blogger

Are we all in a CHA hangover?
Hello Southern Ridge Trading Company fans let me start by introducing myself... I'm Nicole and my Blog is Canadian Nickel Scrap'n.  Well, I guess it's obvious, I'm a Canadian Blogger.  I live in Alberta now but I'm a BC'er from the coast in my heart.  You'll be seeing me post over the next couple of months here as a guest blogger.  I'll be combing my DT posts with SR awesome chipboard/wood cuts. 
I've been blogging for a few years and I love the vintage grungy style!  I'm a HUGE Sizzix and Tim Holtz fan and I love to make a mess.  I started blogging to promote Canadian Bloggers since we can be hard to find... 
Enough about me!  Crafting is way more fun.
Here's a project to inspire using Eileen Hull's Cookie Box Die.
 No cookies here.

How awesome is this wood sign!  These were made for me by the very talented people at Southern Ridge Trading Company!  They were supposed to be attached the CHA Vintage Travel projects but the turn around time was too tight.

Eroded metal technique!

Then using the SRTC Gears in metallic distress paints to layer the top!

I layered the mini jalopy a few cuts deep.   

I love this die and the gears are a perfect fit!!! 

Thanks for stopping by and thanks for having SRTC :)
