Drab to FAB !!!!!

I altered this box for the Vintage Box swap on the CMB. It's for my sis, Diane. ENJOY it sweetie. I used a paper mache' box inked the edges in Chestnut roan chalk in. The add smooth black cardstock under the October Afternoon's Thrift shop designer paper. Love it...looks very antique-y!!!! I then add black cardstock to the lid..with an old postcard...inked the edges. I had some small printed Designer paper in a black/white added it for a pop of patterns. Add a large prinma in dk brown...a handmade flower..THANK YOU SKRAPPINDIVA...but add a pinecone glimmer mist to it to give it the worn/aged vibe. The cream crocheted flower is a vintage look too...I made it and added the pearl to the center. The black gemed trim is from Jo Ann's..and very vintage. THe flower of pearls was a button...added the black prima gems flourishes and the handmade stick pin. THe knob is from Tim Holts collection.  I love how it looks..and hope that Diane is just as pleased.

My cup runth over

So I've been creating even more. I soo LOVE being off!!! I have made a pincushion. It's created from a cup and saucer I bought at a thrift store. It's china...and gorgeous. You just never know what goodies are just waiting to be found at a thrift shop!!!! I did this one for a friend on the CMB...Tiffany...her room is in the colors red/black/white. SO I hunted until I found a black/white cup and saucer. I DID!!!!! The doily on the top is an antique..from another thrift store...and I glimmer mist'd it with Brick. It's a pretty deep dark muted red. The large  handmade flower was from a friend..THANK YOU Skrappindiva! I glimmer'd some with mists and added them to the saucer. I used a wide crocheted ribbon and made it into a bow...added it with the flowers. The butterfly is lace..I actually sewed it on the stick pin to make it look like it's flying. Added buttons in the colors of her room and a string of pearls for the girlie feel. Topped it off with some handmade stick pins and it's ready to send to North Carolina. ENJOY Miss Tif.  I am sooo PROUD of this's the first one I've altered/created and will be proud to send it to her.

Stuck in a Rut Jar

This is the inspiration jar I made for a swap on the CMB. My partner is Jen...we've been partners on several swaps and always love the work she does for me as well as what I make to send her. I altered this small jar for her..OUR ..favorite color combo...PINK/CREAM/BROWN. It turned out soo cute. I had no idea at first..but then the creativity just came to me and this is what I came up with.  I handmade the PINK pipecleaner flower...and add the large gem brad to the center. The small white ones were primas...dusted w/sand glimmer mist. The heart is from MM and pink pearl flourishes by Prima.  The lace butterfly was a RAK sent to me..and it came in ohh-sooo handy. I added teeny-tiny pearls down the middle of it. THe paper is from SEI Grandma's Kitchen???...The crocheted lace on the top...I threaded a pretty pink satin ribbon thru it..and lef the one on the bottom open. Added detail!  The top of the lid..I cut a circle from pink paper..??? ...and glued it down...sanded the edges and added a dk brown ribbon around it. The large pink  flower was from SKrappindiva...THANKS Kathy Jo...and I crocheted the chocolate brown with pink center. For the inspiration~~~~ we had to write ideas down on paper for our sister when her MOJO is runing low.... It turned out way better than I had imagined. ENJOY IT's on the way....

Mini Can

Well I have finished my MINI paint can for a CMB swap. It is just toooo adorable!!! My partner loves red and black...and I hope this can will be  loved as well. Not sure of the papers I used..some from my scraps...but the perfect amount. I added two of my hand-crocheted flowers..a black and a cream. I then misted the cream flower with a Brick and Black Velvet spritz. Added pearls to the centers. I  used flourished clear gems and a metal word ♥LOVE♥. I used 3 mini primas I spritzed with the Brick mist and a pearl flourish with a flower on the lid. I barely misted the mini pompom ribbon around the can. I also made the dangle/charm on the handle. It is just too cute...I am proud of it and happy to send it off to Scrappychick.

Floral Notebook

I altered this Comp book for the same swap as the mini evie posted earlier. I hope she enjoys it as much. I covered it in a pink and a floral brown paper...added a light blue ribbon from the colors of the flowers. I then added HM flowers a friend had sent to me..THANKS Skrappindiva...added some gem flourishes and a Stick pin...and crocheted lace. It's definately a girlie book. She can use it for anything she desires.



You've Got Mail

This is an item I altered for a 6 WK SS swap on the CMB. We had 2 words for 6 weeks we had to create or purchase an item for our take on the word. HERE is mine...It started off as a plain metal envie and I used Ranger Alcohol inks in Pebble..Latte..& Caramel with the copper additive. I loved the **AGED** look of it. Then I added some glimmer misted crocheted ribbon, mini prima flowers and some gem flourishes. Then randomly placed a few pearls. Added a Tim Holtz mini paper clip and one of his Adage tickets. It too was aged with glimmer mist and crinkled to get the worn look. I  hope my SS enjoys it. I love how it turned out. I then made an ATC card to place inside
