Mini Wreath

This was for a friend in a swap. Her craft room will be brown/blue with dots once her new home is built. SO this will work great in her new space...ENJOY Crystal.

I have altered this grapevine wreath a while back...but just getting it to my blog. It was different but I had a great time with it.

Red~White & Blue Charms

Here are my charms for the YPP charm swap. I love how they turned out...But then again...I really enjoy the Patriotic theme on anything. The tag I used the snowflake cuttlebug folder to make it look like FIREWORKS...then used TH distressed inks in aged mohagony..stormy sky...weathered wood..and fired brick to give the illusions  of the fire bursts of color in the sky.  I have really loved how these look!

I've been  ready to send out  my sign for  Tracy for a while now...just the  days of working OT and not getting there before closing has been an issue. UGHHHH....BUT tomorrow...I have a vacation day to enjoy...and a trip to the post office is what I'm doing. I have enjoyed this sign. ScrappinInWonderland...aka Tracy....loves Alice in wonderland...The paper by Graphic 45 Once upon a Springtime was perfect for what I had planned. I used a Disney 3-D sticker on it of Alice....fits...I used HANDMADE flowers from a swap on the CMB...a pretty butterfly made from nylon...and monarch butterfly cuts from MS punch. I've enjoyed the challenge on this swap and hope it has been worth the wait!!!


Family Canvas

Whew....I'm sooo excited to see how my partner on the CMB reacts to this altered canvas. It is larger than what was required...but I think an 8x8 isn't big enough to EXPRESS Elizabeth...enjoy's on the way tomorrow. I started with a blank scretched canvas. I used TH alcohol inks in Latte, Caramel.,Hazelnut and Meadow. I love the way it all blended soo well.The papers are from DCWV...Mariposa and Linen and Lace.  I destressed the papers edges...sanded, torn, and ripped. I painted 2 yellow photo corners to be chocolate well as the chipboard birdcage . It was sent to me in a RAK. The bird I painted buttermil and gave him a lil' blue eye. Painted the chipboard flourish a light sage. I added a chain to the bird house to give it the appearance of hanging. The large brown flower is glimmer misted with Pinecone. The feathered stick pin is from a swap...THANK YOU COYOTEKIM...and the one in the lowere lf hand corner is from another swap. Ribbon is from stash and so is the ligth brown tuelle behind the flowers.Family is cut at 3 1/4" from Cricut cartridge Lacey Labels. The frame is also painted buttermilk and was in a RAK...added 2 pearl brads and it's good to go. I'm really proud of my FIRST altered canvas...I will be doing more of them!!

Pretty Tilda

Good morning to all...
I'm soo happy today is Saturday! DH will be off racing and I have the rest of the day to myself and crafting...wooo hooo. I just finished this Spinner card for a friend. I love it!!! Turned out pretty darn cute! She too loves the pink/brown combo as I do. This is ONLY my 3rd or 4th COLORED Tilda...I'm still trying to get the feel for the COPIC markers. It's fun learning!

At the Beach Charms

I just finished my swap on the CMB for **At the Beach** charms/dangle. I used the colors of the water in greens and blues and added charms of fish and shells. I really think they are adorable...and hope that those that rec'v them ..enjoy them.


Guest Designer

Hello to all....

I am more than ecstatic...I've been chosen to be a Guest Designer for OneCrazyStamper for the month of August. I know it's only for ONE month....but that is a start. I'm soo happy. I was even given a blinkie to add to me blog. There will be two challenges and one has a theme of  **Fun in the Sun** and I have that one colored...but need to finish the card. Love how it turned out too. I'm no pro at coloring with copic markers...but I'm learning more and hope to be better soon.  I will post my creation once I'm done.

Grunge Meets Girlie

I've made these dangles/charms for my swap on the CMB. OMG...I'm not wanting to send them...I want to KEEP them....BUT the ladies are going to love them....It was a Tim Holtz swivel clasp swap. Had to use 3 vintage like items....mine are the aged lock and key and a mini spool. I used Tim Holtz distressed inks in tattered rose and walunt stain to give them an old vibe. The keys and locks are Maya Road chipboard pcs and I used the Ranger Copper dabber to add age as well. LOVE THEM!!!!!!  We also had to use 4 Tim Holtz items on the charm/dangle. I used word sticks...trinket pins with pink beads...Fragment charms I added pink/black buttons to...and a pearl baubble from his things. So to me the  ***Grunge Meets Girlie*** is sooo appropriate. I add pink beads in where I could..and a piece of PINK tuelle was added for texture and softness. I just LOVE how they turned out...
