OLW132 - Inspired By Packaging


This week's One Layer Wednesday challenge is being hosted by Heather, and the challenge is to be inspired by packaging. 

This is my second 'made-in-Canada' post this week - anyone who lives in Canada and shops at a Loblaws-affiliated grocery store will recognize this brand immediately. It's the store "no name" brand (their basic, low cost generic). They also have a more upscale store brand called President's Choice.



The product range in these two store brands goes from basic groceries to  frozen dinners, batteries and shampoo to banking and insurance. They even had a reality-TV show, where they chose their next products from enthusiastic home cooks. In my house alone I had these crackers, chicken stock, butter chicken sauce, marshmallows, flour, olive oil, frozen fruits and vegetables - I'm sure you get the idea!

Seeing something as stunning and crisp and eye-catching as this in ordinary budget-range packaging, Ardyth ... wow ... that's truly inspired (and inspiring)! Anita :) (bowing low!)

So fun to see your inspiration, you're always so good about sharing it with us : ) Love that typography. The embossed letters are so scrumptious!

I would never have thought to take the no-name yellow packaging as my inspiration but your card is superb. Very nice job on lining everything up so perfectly.
