Altered Pieces

Hello crafters!  Happy hump day!  Today, I have another altered project that was made for a co-worker's birthday.  She loves the color orange and we are getting ready to move to a brand new bldg. so I wanted to make her something for her desk!

I purchased the letter from Hobby Lobby and gave it a coat of paint. I used a scrap piece of heavy card stock, antiqued the edges, stamped some words on the paper, although you can't see it very well, and added the embellishments.

Hello fellow crafters!  It's been way too long since I've posted.  Traveling for work and school has just consumed me.  I miss crafting and visiting blogs.  I want to share a birthday card I made for one of my nieces.  This cute image from Mayzy Arts, called Texting Trixi,  was perfect for her! She's forever texting on her iphone.  Half the time, I have no clue what she's saying when she texts me! Paper is from MME and the image is colored with copics. Well, I hope to be able to craft more for the upcoming holidays.  Until next time, have a great week!

Sew much fun!

Hello crafters!  I want to share an altered project I've been working on for a co-worker.  She loves to sew and just bought herself a new sewing machine for her birthday.  So I wanted to make her something to go in her sewing room...a sewing box that she can keep buttons, scraps,etc. in!

I started out with an old cigar box and covered it with Graphic45 paper called Couture.

I then added some embellishments, ribbon around the side and dowels on the bottom.
Here's a peek of the inside of the box.

I also made a pin cushion to go along with the box!

Celebrate in style

Hello crafters!  Hope all is well in your neck of the woods.  I'm just enjoying summer and crafting when I can.  Today I want to share a few birthday cards I made for family and friends.

I love Stamping Bella stamps!  I have a niece who loves handbags, and how many of us don't! I thought this was perfect for her. 
This card I made for a co-worker who loves traveling.  The images are from Stampin Up.  To me they look like images from someplace like London...well that's what I was going for anyway!
This 3-fold card was also made for a co-worker who loves her coffee in the mornings!  The paper and image are from Kanban Crafts.

Mojo coming back!

Hello crafters.  I think I'm getting my mojo back!  I'd like to share a few more cards I've made.

My family is going through a trying time right now with one of my niece's.  Her cancer has come back and we are dealing with it as best we can.  Please keep us in your prayers.  I just wanted to give her some encouragement so I sent her a little card. This was made using the Unity stamp set, In Love with Love.

I made this card for a friend who had a housewarming party. She loves anything beachy!  The die-cuts are layered although you can't really tell.  I punched a hole in the top and put the little fish behind it, like a port hole and used MME paper for the background. The little starfish is wooden and I sprayed with ink.  Die-cuts are from the Pink Paislee Nantucket set.

And last but not least, I needed a sympathy card for a co-worker who lost his wife last week.  I know none of us care to make these cards. Just needed something clean and simple.
