I Finally Got a BIA!!!

Ok Ok. So I was a little naughty this past weekend! I said I wouldn't be making any new purchases for quite sometime because I am saving for my Big Shot Pro. Well I used the money I was going to save towards the PRO this month on the BIA. I had heard that Tuesday Morning sometimes carried them for a great price. So I went on the hunt for it. There are 6 Tuesday Mornings within a 20 mi radius so I called 4 out of the 6 stores before I found it. And I was lucky too. It was the last one they had! And it was super cheap! You can't beat $30! Brand new seals and looking beautiful! Of course now it will be a little while before I actually use it since I don't have the o-wires for it... But I promised myself I wasn't going to buy anything else at all! So here is the latest edition to my scrapbook area.. lol.. I love it to death even tho its PINK! Ugh why can't it be a more appealing color like Black. lol.. Oh well.
I can't wait to make something with it! Stay tuned!
Thanks for stopping by~

Altered Jewelry Box

Yo Scrappin Divas!
What have you all been up to? So here is another finished project. I am happy to report that this will be my last Black Currant paper stack project for a long long time lol... I still love the paper but I am over it. I got some new papers last week which I showed on a haul vid last week. So Saturday I completed an unfinished wood jewelry box that I bought at Michaels. They are $7.99 reg price and I used a 40% coupon. I created this  for my BFF's 10 yr old stepdaughter's birthday. For details on how I created this box check out the video on youtube.... click here.

Altered Mirror

Hey Scrappers!
Finally I am getting around to doing the blog post for the altered mirror I did a video for about a week ago. I started this mirror with the idea it would be for my own scrap space but as I chose the paper I realized it would be perfect for one of my scrappy bff's new scraproom. This is for the lovely Kayluvs2scrap! She is truly one of the greatest friends I could have asked for as well as Mrs. Mely Goodman! I love these two ladies to death!
So to start things off I used a mirror I purchased at Ikea. I did not need to paint is since the frame was already painted black. I once again used the Black Currant paper stack by DCWV. I know I know I've used the same stack for all my projects... Well I only have 3 stacks but I promise I am currently working on something for Mely using a different stack lol. I hope to have it posted in a few days! I know in my video I said I would post all the items used but it's very time consuming lol. So I decided not to post them. if you really want to know just leave me a comment and I will let you know exactly what I used. I did go over it in my video so you can check that out if you want to know lol.
Thanks for stopping by and checking out my project.


 Kay I hope you like your mirror!

Happy Scrappin Everyone
