Shabby Thanks



Hey Guys!
I hope you are having a great weekend.

Just a quick post today to share with you a thank you I made for my sweet little neighbor. She got our mail and newspaper while we were away for a few days last week. The nail polish is really neat. It's from a store called Del Sol. Everything in the store changes color in the sunlight. Everything! Even the shopping bag they give you. Totally cool store and I knew she would love the polish.

It was fun to place this darling shabby tag on the bag. I used all Melissa Frances product. Paper is from her 5th Avenue line. Stamp is SU!

Thanks for popping in.
Wishes for a great day!

Frosted Designs Fabulous Friday Challenge ~ Blk & White+1


Hi guys!
I hope you are having a great day. It's Friday so that means it's another Fabulous Friday challenge over at Frosted Designs. The challenge this week is to create something using the colors Black, White, and one other color of your choice. Of course my color is pink! My fave!!


This sweet purse was made using the template Scallop Purse and Tag Mini Set #01 from our sponsor this week Creative Cuts and More.


And this darling pocketbook was made using the Creative Cuts & More Retro Pocketbook template. It was extremely easy to fold and put the template together. They come in any color you could imagine. So super cute and fun to embellish.

I hope you'll find some time to join the challenge this week!
Thanks so much for peeking in. ~:0)

Altered Frame



This sweet altered frame was a blank canvas when I got it from a friend of mine. Thanks Kate! Kate sent it to me for a challenge. I had to alter whatever she sent me. And to my surprise when I opened the package it was a blank frame to alter. It didn't take me long to figure out what I wanted to do with it.



The tags hanging off with the chandelier drops are all Melissa Frances product. Goodness I love her stuff. This was such a fun project for me and a first at altering frames.



I took so much delight in making the tags for the frame that I decided to make the tags above for a handmade embellies swap I am in. Too cute!!

Thanks for stopping by.
Wishes for a great day!

Frosted Designs Fabulous Friday Challenge ~ Journaling Tags



Welcome to another Fabulous Friday challenge over at Frosted Designs.
This Friday the challenge is to use journaling tags somewhere on your project. We are being sponsored this week by Monster Creations. A fabulous place for all and any board books. The circle album I altered for this challenge was supplied by Monster Creations. Let me tell you... this thing is awesome! The chipboard is so super thick and durable that nothing is going to tear this thing. All of the holes were perfectly in place, and I didn't need to sand anything. The edges are all smooth. Wonderful quality!!


This is my first use of journaling tags. The tag pulls out of the handmade pocket. The tag is from Tim Holtz.






This is the second use of journaling tags. I love having one page for nothing but journaling. The pocket is large enough to place concert stubs, programs, etc.










That's it! That's my fabulous chipboard album. I am going to do a video on this and point out certain techniques and product used. So stay tuned for that!

As always thank you so much for spending some time with me!
Wishes for a great day!

Frosted Designs Fabulous Friday Challenge ~ Friendship



~ Hello Crafters ~
TGIF!!
Friday marks another fabulous challenge over at Frosted Designs. The challenge this week is to make a project with the theme of "friendship". My card is a general friendship card that could be used for almost anything. From a simple hello to thanks so much!

I used mostly Melissa Frances products on this card. They are sprinkled all around. It was nice to get back to sewing too. Don't be afraid to make a bold statement with soft colors like I did with my ribbon. It can be very striking!

I hope you all have a fabby weekend.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
