Finished Altered Recipe Box

Hey Scrappers!
I have been working on an altered recipe box  for a swap hosted by the awesome kayluvs2scrap for the past 3 weeks now. Yeah I know 3 weeks..... but I finally finished it. I think I probably worked on it 30 minutes each week lol.  But hey what can you do when you have 2 lil ones at home... Scrap time is extremely limited.
I am actually very pleased with the way it came out. Not bad for my first one! I used the the DCWV Black Currant paper stack. LOike I have said before.. Gorgeous gorgeous paper. I wanted to keep the box but decided to send it off any way.  Here are some pics. I hope you like it!




Here is a video of the box! TFW!



Thanks!

Thank you card

Hey Everyone,
As promised I am trying to do a weekly post, even if its something small. Here is a simple thank you card that I made this morning with some scraps that I had left over from the altered recipe box I am working on. I used the DCWV Black Currant Stack which is absolutely gorgeous. I think I might need to buy another one to hoard :)

Please leave your comments. Feed back is always greatly appreciated!

Have a great crafty weekend!

Another Flower & My first stick pin

Well back to back flower posts... I stayed up late playing around with flowers. I made another flower but this time I played around with not just glimmer mist but color wash too... I used Adirondack Color Wash in Cranberry along with the same TA Copper Color Glimmer Mist.   I love the cranberry color! Its gorgeous! And I have Kim Dylewicz to thank for doing a trade with me on Life on the Scrap Beach!
I also made my first stick pin! YAY! It's simple but cute! I am looking forward to gathering more supplies to make some fabulous stick pins!

I hope everyone has a fabulous scrappin day!

Finally Another Post - Flowers

Hey everyone!
So I figured it was time for a new post... I was waiting until I finished the altered recipe box I'm working on for a swap but that's still another week away. Since I was making flowers today I thought I could post those instead.The black one i just put a little bit of diamond dust on the edges of the petals.
I finally used glimmer mist!!! I used it on the little white rose. You can't see it very well due to the flash but I used the Tattered Angels - copper glimmer mist.... Oh boy.. people said I would love glimmer mist but they didn't say how much I would love it... I NEED every color out there now!!! Its gorgeous! I didn't over do it on the flower since the two bottles I do have are small.... 1oz... So I think I'm going to hoard those for a while til I can get more!!!
So I hope to do at least a weekly post. What's the point on having a blog if I'm never going to post anything lol.... Well until next time ladies!!!
Please feel free to comment.. Feedback is always greatly appreciated...
