25 Day Countdown to Christmas ~ Recap

Nov 27, 2012

I had so much fun helping my nieces Madelyn and Bellie create their 25 Day Countdown to Christmas project over the Thanksgiving weekend. They were so excited and worked so hard on each and every envelope. We had a flurry of creativity going on as you can see by all the blurry photos. They were peeling, sticking, punching, stamping and Stickling like crazy. It was really cute to watch their creative minds at work. Madelyn loved accenting each of her envelopes with the rhinestone gems and snowflakes. She is all about sparkle and bling. But what little girl isn’t? And GASP, a niece of mine that does NOT like sparkle and bling… well that would be so wrong. Bellie LOVED these 3D stickers I found at the last minute in the $1 section at...

25 Day Countdown to Christmas

Nov 23, 2012

Today, I’m making a 25 day Countdown to Christmas project with my nieces Madelyn and Bellie. As you can see from the photo they are loving their new matching jammies. New flannel jammies are the best especially when you find matching ones like my mom did with a monkey print design. Ok sorry, back to the project. Both little sweet peas will decorate 12 standard sized card envelopes using stickers, self adhesive gems, then stamp the numbers needed on each of their bags. Madelyn will stamp the odd numbers and Bellie the even numbers. I will decorate envelope 25 for them to either use as a sample or for inspiration. Once all the envelopes are decorated I’ll fill each one with 2 pieces of candy and a printed strip of paper that has one...

Gift Box

Jun 29, 2011

I altered this box using the Main Kit “Urban Loft” by Cocoa Daisy. I plan on placing a gift card inside for a special someone on their birthday. Afterwards they can use the box to store small items inside. Altering items is one of my favorite things to do… I love turning something that was discarded and no longer wanted into a new treasured item. That is one reason my closet looks like a hoarder lives in my studio. I cannot pass up small boxes and paper mache items. I always think, “Oh this would be awesome to alter.” I really like the flowers that come in the “South Loop” Add On Kit. They are prefect to create a little floral grouping. And you know I love the Maya Road Crystal Trinket Pins. There...

Altered Paper Mache Book

Feb 15, 2011

This altered piece uses all brand new CHA-W release products by Tim Holtz. I was so happy to see the Fractured Doll in my box of products to design with…. I love these dolls and you get two different sized dolls per package! Next to the white seam binding I attached one of his new Chain Tassels. These are the perfect accent for a project and I love the movement of the tassel. The patterned papers used are from his new Paper Stash – Crowded Attic line. This paper line is so pretty and has designs in it for all styles. The butterflies and moths behind the Fractured Doll and among the paper flowers inside the book are from Tim’s new Salvage Stickers – Crowded Attic.

Ranger Designer Challenge

Feb 14, 2011

I was thrilled when Ranger asked if I would be interested in creating a canvas for their Designer Challenge. I could not reply back fast enough with a very excited yes! They sent each designer a box filled with a 12 x 12 frame, Perfect Pearls and Perfect Pearl Mists and told us to create something that reflected our style. Well I knew mine had to include book pages, Platinum Stickles and glitter and once I got started I could not stop. I used loads of Ranger product and when you look at the list below you’ll realize I’m not kidding. It was so much fun to sit and just create whatever came to mind. I cut the grungepaper into squares, embossed them using my cuttlebug then sewed them all together with a zigzag...
