Match box

Here is an altered match box I did for a swap on the CMB. My partner said to open with my ideas and I went for it. I love the paper from Once upon a Springtime  is sooo adorable. I loved it and how this box turned out. I hope she does as well. I also had to make a charm/dangle , 3 stickpins...and some handmade flowers.


Empty matchbox

Finished Matchbox

Goodies Inside the matchbox

Domino Affect

I've altered these for a swap on the CMB. I used the Prima ledger stamp with black staz-on ink first...then used Tim Holts distressed inks in tattered rose...vintage photo and brushed corduroy to give it the aged look. I then used the heat gun to set it all. I used small brown Prima flowers added glossy accents to the petal and dried them to give it a sugared look. Add black Prima gems to them and a magnetic strip to the back...Voila...DONE....Soo vintage and soooooooooo pretty.

Relaxing on the beach

On the CMB we had to alter an item with a beach theme for a pin cushion. Here is my take on it. I found this lil' adorable beach chair at a thrift store and painted it a creamy buttermilk color...added splashes of TH Blue Jean crackle paint. Added a lacey vintage doiley a cricut book and pins I altered as well. I do hope my SS, Barbara enjoys it.

Bottle Cap magnets

I have made two of these....each for a different person for a different swap. THis is how they started out....

The first one is for Love2Craft....Karrie. She loves purple. It's not a fav color of mine to work with...but I believe it turned out quiet lovely. It was for the Summer Swap on the CMB. We had to make a handmade item...I did this for her.  Enjoy it Karrie.

This is the one for Karrie...I used TH alcohol inks in a pearl...Twilight Purple..and  Cool Peri . The alpha was a white letter to start off with...but glimmer misted it with a Lavendar fields...and gave it a nice purple color. The mini roses were from Prima . Used MS 3 N 1 buttefly punch ...I'm really pleased with how it turned out.

THis is the one I made for J-bear...Jamie. She likes pinks/browns so I used TH latte and hazelnut along with Mountain rose and Pearl on hers to add color. Set it with the heat gun.  I then used a HM pink rose given to me by Jenn...thank you! and a mini brown rose by Prima. I used white crocheted lace and tied it into a bow. I used Ranger paint dabbers in Expresso and Pink Sherbert on the alphas. Added small butterfly and silver pearls on it's back.  Once finished...I then added magnetic tape to the back of both of these caps.


Let Banners Wave

This is a *BANNER* I made for one of my swaps. Shannon will enjoy it in her scraproom...I do hope. I cut the ovals with letters from the George Cricut Cart...and the framed ovals from the Jasmine Cricut cart. I sooo loved how it turned out. I then cute the printed ovals so they would peak thru the solid color. I then added pearls, skittles and gems to make it pop!!! The ribbon was perfect to bring out the printed paper thru the alphas.

Guest Designer Card

Hello to all....

I'm a  Guest Designer this month for I can't believe I was actually chosen to be one!!! I'm soo happy. This month's theme is **Fun in the Sun** and here is my take on just that...**Fun in the Sun**.  I chose to make a Center step card using the Whimsy Doodle stamp...Biker Girl. This is me to a *T*. I love to ride with DH on our bike. THis stamp was actually a gift from a wonderful friend...THANK YOU TIFFANY!  I have enjoyed coloring it with Copic Sketch markers. I used Bazzill pink cardstock....GinaK Luxury White cardstock. The patterned papers are from stash. The larger mini flower was a RAK from a  friend...thank you Jen....and the small pink and brown from Crystal as a RAK. I used Tim Holtz memo pin to hold his adage ticket that says PLAY. Then a mini clip to hold the stamped phrase **Destination Unknown** in the upper right-hand corner.  Between the two flowers on the left lower-hand corner...I used a pink/white and brown/white baker's twine.  I hope you leave some kind thoughts.

Love and hugs~~~~
