Altered Matchbox Dresser

Hello Everyone! I wanted to share this altered matchbox dresser that I have done for a swap over at CCL(Creating the Crafty Life).  I love how this has turned out.  I will be doing more of these I think.  It was so fun and easy to do.  I created my own matchboxes, why go spend money when I have cardstock right here that will work great for them.  They are the smaller boxes.

 The top of the dresser I created this back for it using a piece of light weight chipboard.  I cut it into 2 pieces and rounded the corners with my corner chopper.  I then glued them together to form the back.  My embellishments are flowers from WOC(Wild Orchid Crafts) and some pearl bling from W2S(Want to Scrap).  The wood pieces I got from a swap over at NBC(Nothing but Crafts), thanks Kim they worked so well for this.  I also received the cameo form her as well.

 The feet for the bottom I created from pearl beads and bead caps.  I love how they came out.  The last picture show that the drawers actually work.  I used very small beads as the handles.  I added more pearl bling to each side of the dresser.  The paper line I used was from Graphic 45, love them!!!  And finally I used my favorite(for right now lol) medium, gesso to give it that something extra!!  I hope you have enjoyed my post today, and please stop back again!  Happy Scrapping!!

Altered Clothespin

This is a clothespin that I got from AC Moore, that I altered.  I had alot of fun doing this one.  I used Graphic 45 Le Romantique Paper, I also used some bling from Want 2 Scrap, it was a pearl flourish that I cut apart.

 Here I used flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts.  I layed a Gardenia and some open roses, and then tucked some rose buds in.  I also placed a few pearls amongst the flowers.  I also added a Tim Holtz ticket, which I curled the corners and used some gesso along the edge.
 Here a used a metal embellishment from Butter Bee Scraps, and I gessoed the edge of it and placed an open rose in the center.  The paper I curled the corner and placed a flat back pearl.
 This is the back of it and all I did was curl the edges of the top and bottom corner and put flat back pearls.  I also used gesso along the edge of the paper.

Altered Bucket

Hi Everyone!!  So today I am sharing a small altered bucket that I have done.  This was so quick and easy to make.  It came out just the way I wanted it to as well!!!  The paper I used came from Bo Bunny the Gabrielle line.  I just love pink and brown together!!  The layered some white lace, pink flat back pearls and a brown rosette trim with pearls in some of the rosettes.  I then distressed them with gesso.

 The paper I cut and distressed the edges with my Tim Holtz distressing tool and then also added gesso to the edges.  On three sides of the bucket I did something new.  I used a word stencil and some modeling paste, I think it came out awesome for my first time.

 On two sides I did flower clusters, which are from Wild Orchid Crafts.  I used the pink cottage roses, the 2 tone chocolate brown wild roses,  white tea roses, and pink semi-open roses.  The white daisy under the cottage rose came from a trim that I had in my stash that I cut apart.  I also added green rose leaves under the clusters.  I then softened everything up with gesso.

Thanks for stopping by and have a scrappy day!!

Brides Book

Hello Everyone!!  Here is todays project!!  I have made a coordinating Bride's mini book to go with the signature book.  This mini is made with 4 chipboard pages, which I used the Tim Holtz Ornamental die again for.  The paper I used is the Gold Glitter Swirl on cream.  This paper is so elegant that I didn't want to over power it with alot.  So what I did was do a flower cluster in the bottom corner, and I added a large piece of bling and a white dove.  I then added some burgandy pearl spray.  I also added a Tim Holtz ticket.  I inked everything in Vintage Photo.  I bound the mini with some white lace at the top.  The inside is very basic so that the bride can add pictures or momentos from the big day.  I hope you have enjoyed my project for this month.  Don't forget this paper is on sale at the Robins Nest website.  Thanks for stopping by and have a scrappy good day!!

Mini Signature Book

Hello Ladies so sorry for the late post.  But here is my DT Project for today.  I have made a mini signature book that can be used for Bridal showers, baby showers or even a Wedding.

 The paper I used is the Red Glitter Swirl Cardstockthis is beautiful paper.  This cardstock is on sale this month at 20% off!!!

 For the covers I have used the Ornamental Die from Tim Holtz and I have also cut all the paper, which is cream colored cardstock for the pages inside.  The cover also has one of Gina's Design doilies which is under a metal flower piece.

 I have also used some lace from my stash, and a flower and leaf, and to top it off I used some cream colored bling.  To bind it I used some chain.  I hope you like what I have created for you.

Please check out my blog at Kreations by Kimber soon to view a tutorial on this project!!
