Last Post! Altered 5 Drawer Dresser

Hi Scrappers!
Ok this is my last post for today I promise. So I have been working on a mini album for a personal swap with my friend Monique (butterbeescraps) - My youtube was being neglected and since I was in need  of a new video and the mini is not due to be completed for another 2 weeks or so I decided to do this simple and quick project. I had this little dresser thingy sitting on the shelf so I decided to finally alter it. I wanted it to be quick and simple and here is how it turned out! To check out the video click HERE

So I used DCWV Chateau Lavender Paper Stack. And I left it very simple since I thought the paper was beautiful I didn't want to be covering it up all that much. I used My lindy's Moon Shadow Ink - Pirates Plunder Gold to stain the wood instead of painting it with acrylic paint. To see what products I used check out the video I got over all of the products there.
Thanks for stopping by!

ERIC my new love! Spellbinders Grand Calibur!

Hey Everyone!
So I introduced one of the new loves of my life in one of my videos on youtube back in Aug. I have been wanting the BigShot Pro for the longest time as well as the Spellbinders Grand Calibur. My original plan was to buy the BS Pro first then eventually get the Calibur somewhere down the road. Well the Pro will take me much much longer to save for and is HUGE! So I went with the Calibur. I sold a few of my old cricut cartridges that I NEVER use and got this bad boy with a Joann's 50% coupon at Michael's! Gotta love the acceptance of competitor coupons LOL.  I have a tendency to name my possessions that I truly Love. So without any more delay this is ERIC! He is named after my FAVORITE True Blood character Eric Northman! Isn't he beautiful and SEXY lol!
 Well I just wanted to share my new love since I get overly excited when I make new purchases! ehehhehe! He is a dream and cuts BEAUTIFULLY! I love the larger platform.. 8 1/2" x 12 plates! I get sooo many cuts done on one run for all of my smaller dies and takes all the larger border spellbinder dies that I couldnt cut on my cuttlebug since I did not have the extender plates! Which I did not want to purchase since I do NOT like my cuttlebug lol... Anyways I Love Love Love my new toy so I just wanted to share it with the world! LOL

Alrighty I'm outta here!!!

Another Altered Cigar Box

I'm back! Post #2 LOL. Well now that I look there will be 4 posts total lol.. I just noticed that I didn't post the 3rd altered Cigar Box that I did. This was created for a swap over at MAS -MiniAlbumScraps.ning.com. I must say I absolutely LOVE the way this box came out. Another one I wanted to keep for myself lol.
Anyways,tThis is going to be a quick post so I wont be listing the products that I used on this box since it was done back toward the end of June I believe and it would be very time consuming for me to go back and find all the products. I do go over all the products used on my yt video so if you are interested click HERE.

I know I always post all the products I used so sorry about that.  But since there are a total of 3 or 4 blog posts I need to make these short and sweet since my kids are already all over me to get off my laptop. LOL
Thanks for stopping by!
