Altered Wood Letters

Hey my scrappy peeps! So I altered some wood letters I bought at Joann's for my mom for Christmas. Here is how they turned out.
I painted each letter with black acrylic paint and covered each letter with paper from DCWV Black Currant Paper Stack. Once covered both the front and back of the letters with ModgePodge.  I used several flowers from WOC,puffy daises, small maple leaves and skeleton leaves from IAR, a beaded spray from Michael's and I also used a couple Lindy's Stamp Gang sprays. I painted the gold roses with metallic gold acrylic paint, I would have done it with a Lindy's stain but I didn't have a gold color that I wanted to use. Please look below all the pics for links to these products.

Disney Mini Album

Hey Everyone!
I am finally posting the info for the Disney Mini Album that I completed earlier this week. Here are some photo's as well.
I used mainly die cuts on this album. For die cut information look at the info below each picture.
COVER
INSIDE COVER
For the inside cover I just used Mickey Mouse Deisgner paper that I purchased at Michaels a long time ago and then lines the edge with black lace trim.
 Page 1: Mickey - The Mickey Die cut was created using the Mickey and Friends Cartridge
The next few pages have SVG files from the same blog.



All of the die cuts EXCEPT the Star Tours were from Reddy's Rambling's Blog. She has a TON I mean a TOn of fabulous Disney SVG Files. Check her out!
This page I used the Mickey & Friends Cricut Cartridge for the Minnie Title Phrase. I also used the Martha Steware Deep Edge Punch.. Latice Heart and some random flat scrapbooking flowers.
The Mickey Ears on the tags are a border from the Mickey Font Cartridge.

Minnie was cut from the Micket and Friends cartridge.
The teeny tiny pink flower is a Wild Orchid Crafts Flower. Here is the link.


These two Splash Mountain Die cuts I got off of this blog

Goofy is from the Mickey & Friends Cricut cartridge and Donald is from the Mickey Font Cartridge. 

Snow White was cut from the Happily Ever After Cartridge. The blue flowers are Prima flowers and the white flower in the center is from Wild Orchid Crafts. here is the link to the flowers.

For the last page. there isnt anything to it. I got super lazy and had to finish it ASAP. The flowers are Prima Flowers. The Lilo & Stitch are just images I pulled off the internet and printed out.

To see the full album please check out my video on you tube. My channel is Scrappin4MyBoys

Thanks for watching! Please feel free to leave comments. Your feedback is greatly appreciated!
Many thanks and Happy Scrappin!
