Altered Notebook


Altered notebook that I made for Cassi on Life on the Scrapbeach. The theme was shabby chic which is unfamiliar territory for me. I hope that this is considered shabby chic and I hope that Cassi likes it.

A few flowers that I made







I saw a video on Life on the Scrapbeach done by I think Luann which she watched on youtube by someone she wasn't sure of the name. She had made a mini with this gorgeous flower on the front and then did a tutorial on how to make it. So simple but I love them!

My Virginia find

When we were in Virginia last weekend I was shopping and found this dressform. I'm not sure what I'm going to do with it yet, but I have charm dangles hanging on it for now.

Charm Dangles

 These are my charm dangles that I was working on. So inspired by some of the talented crafters I've seen online. I just wanted to do something a little different so I decided to make a few of these. Hope you like them.

My 1st attempt to make a pincushion

My first pincushion didn't turn out too bad but it needs a little work.

How I spent my sunday!

This is what happens when you keep doing projects and NEVER clean up! I am a very messy scrapper, usually doing 4 or 5 projects before I clean up. I'm going to dcorate my room in a vintage fashion so I'm going to TRY to clean up as I go! So I spent my sunday cleaning the scraproom!

A couple more tags that I made. For a long time I couldn't make a tag that looked nice. I think I had so much inspiration from so many talented people on the web that I finally got it. Thank you everyone for the designs that you share.

First ATC!Clear Art Stamps, Material Girl set

This was my first ATC that I made. The stamps are from Clear Art Stamps, Material Girl set. This set was smaller than I thought when I got it but was perfect for the ATC.
Happy saturday! Just wanted to share with a pin and lollipop flower that I made. Lollipop flower was made with the sizzix circle die and a couple layers of the layersr are stamped with a vintage writing stamp. I decided to make a pin to match which is made with black and green beads with a shoe charm on the end. I will be putting this set on my etsy store today.

My Journal

  

   This is a journal that I made. This was my challenge to myself to make something using no paper. I used cardboard for the cover and a few inside pages that I made for pictures. This was my first journal and I am really happy with it.





This is one of my inside pages. I wanted to keep the journal flat so I just used a couple stamps and then I'll put a couple pics on it.
Just another one of the inside pages.

                I made this tag tonight. I used graphic 45 stamps for the image. I am just in love with the images on these stamp. When I found them at Michaels I bought four sets. Love them.
        This is a tag that I made for Sallie (ScrapbookGiggles) just to say thank you for the beautiful mini that she made to give away (and I won!). I used Graphic 45 stamps for this tag also. I made the lollipop flowers on both tags and the pin on the second one.

I wanted to share it with you because she makes absolutely beautiful minis so check her out on youtube or you can find a link on the side of the page under blogs I follow.

An altered box made from a box for chicken nuggets

A friend of mine works in the school cafeteria. When they get their chicken nuggets they also send boxes with them that they do not use. She asked me if I thought I would have use for any of them so I took them and this is what I came up with. I painted the inside of the box, easier than using paper, covered it with paper and embellished it. I decided to give it to my friend and she was so happy that I would give her something like that. I love to make and give to people that so appreciate handmade creations.

 This is a tag that I made using a large shipping tag that I buy at Staples. I stamped the background with 3 or 4 colors of Tim Holtz distress ink. (not sure of the colors). sprayed it with glimmer mist and stamped it with butterflies using white ink.Stamped a face, crown and saying, lace and beads across the bottom with some bling, butterflies and few small roses and thats my tag. I put fibers through the hole in the top because I love the look of them.






This was my first tag that I made. Some Tim Holtz distressing ink and glimmer mist  for the background. Stamped and a feather and flower in front of it with a button and bling in the center of the flower. I added a key and garment pin with a heart on it and that was my first tag. I was so proud of it because I had never done anything but a little stamping on them.






This tag is sprayed with glimmer mist. It is stamped lightly with a vintage writing with butterflies stamped over that. I went over the butterflies with some stickles to make them sparkle. Added some glimmer mist sprayed lace and beads to the bottom with a rose that I used my own made glimmer mist on. A little butterfly behind the rose and a small shipping tag added to the top that is stamped with social butterfly. On the edge of the small tag I put a butterfly attached to a mini clothespin.
