Project 31 - Day 9

This is an altered matchbox.  I used glass floral marbles for the feet.  The knob is a rose shaped bead attached with an office brad.  The paper is K & Co.  The embellishments on top are a combination of Webster's Pages' floral bunch, rose trim, and beaded trim from the bridal dept. (at Michael's).  It was a lot of fun to make.  I simply covered the matchbox cover with paper.  The drawer was made from Bazzill cardstock (I used the box's original for a template), much easier than covering the original.

Project 31 - Day 8

Just a simple card today.  On SCS my friend Janice (jabauer) hosted a stitched flower swap.  You had to stamp on fabric and sew too.  For me, a lot easier said then done.  I only sew in (somewhat) straight lines.  This is an example of my flower.

The flower was stamped using an {ippity} stamp (Now & Always) and the paper flowers in the middle were attached with a jewel brad.  I used fancy labels (Spellbinders) for the sentiment and Labels 2 with swirls embossing folder (Cuttlebug) for the green.  The background paper is Recollections.

Project 31 - Day 7

My friend Sharon became a Grandmother on July 2.  This is her first grandchild, and she is so excited!!  I made this mini album for her to fill with all the pictures of Taaji.  I used papers and embellishments I had.  I've been hoarding a lot.  Here's the inside and the back cover.
Thanks for looking!

Project 31 - Day 6

I'm in an Altered Journal Swap on SCS.  I decided to make mine with a fantasy theme (fairies and mermaids).  I just finished the fairy journal.  The paper is from K & Co.  The images are Sweet Pea Stamps colored with Bic Permanent Markers and Copics.  For this swap, not only did you have to decorate the front, you had to decorate a few pages too.  The mermaid/fairy on the left is actually a bookmark that detaches from the journal (if you'd like).  
This is the inside cover.  I made a pocket with Nesties (Labels 2, I think).  There are punched tabs (SU) in the baggie for the owner to attach later.
This is a pocket made with a 61/2 x 9 in. mailing envelope.  The idea was Scraphead's (Pat).  These images are from Inkadinkado "Mindscapes" and "Fairies."
Picture of the bookmark, marking a page.

I just stamped 2 random pages with fairy images.
Thanks for looking!

Project 31 - Day 2

Another friend, Debby, asked me to make some cards for her mother (who's 91).  Debby is at a loss as to what to give her mother these days.  So I made cards for her to give to her great-grandchildren and grandchildren on their birthdays.  The images are from some image swaps and the paper is from my organized scrap bin.  The birthday sentiments are {ippity}.  Thanks for looking!

Project 31 - Take Two

Awhile ago my friend, Sharon, asked me to make a mini album for her to give to her mother.  I told her to give me her pictures and I would make the album using her pictures as inspiration.  This was supposed to be a Mother's Day gift.  I'm still waiting on the pictures.  So, I decided to take a new approach - make the album and let Sharon put the pictures in the album.  Here's the album.  It is a "Birdhouse Mini Album," Laura Denison designed it.  You can get the pattern here, Follow the Paper Trail with Laura.
  Sharon's mother loves to work in her flower garden (and they have a flat in Paris, France).  So I thought she would like this birdhouse with toile paper.  Where's the album?  Lift the roof and the album slides out of the top of the house.

Paper:  Mostly Recollections printed cardstock (and assorted papers I had on hand)
Misc:  7 Gypsies flowers, Tim Holtz Box Feet, Bird and Butterfly from Michael's, Prima Bling
