Easel Post it Note Holder/Card

Hi Everyone!!  Today I would like to share a project that I did for a challenge over at Creating the Crafty Life.  We had to make a easel post it note holder.  This was so easy to do.  The paper line I used is from Graphic 45, Once Upon a Springtime Collection.  I added flowers from WOC and a pearl spray from W2S.

I added a couple charms from my stash that I got at Michaels.  I also added some vintage style lace and cheesecloth that I tucked in behind the cutout from the collection.  I inked everything with Vintage Photo from Tim Holtz.

I also added a flat back pearl and ribbon buckle.  I then added gesso to the flowers and charms.  I distress the edges of the paper with my Tim Holtz distressing tool.  I just love the color combo that I used for this.  Thanks for stopping by!!

Steampunk/Girlie Box!!

Hello Everyone!!  Today I am sharing a box that I created.  I made this box out of medium weight chipboard.  The paper line I used is by Prima, its the Engraver line.  I used chipboard gears from Leaky Shed Studio. I also used some metal gears from Tim Holtz.  The flowers are from WOC and the pearl spray is from Recollections, which I got at Michaels.

 The lace trim came from MB Treasurista.  The chain and the feet are from my stash.  I added paper to the inside of the box as well.  I used Vintage Photo distress ink from Tim Holtz for the edges of the paper.

 I also used gesso on the flowers and the edges of the gears.  This was my first time attempting steampunk and I think I did a pretty good job.  I hope you have enjoyed my project as much as I had creating it.  Thanks for stopping by!!

Altered Mini Clipboard

Hi Everyone!!  Today I am sharing an Altered Mini Clipboard.  This was so fun to make!!  I used Prima's Lyric collection for the background.  I also used Wild Orchid Craft flowers and pearl spray from Want 2 Scrap.

 I also used some items from my stash, the charm, trim, pearls and buttons.  Flat back pearls in pink, came from MB Treasurista.  The dragon fly is from Gina's Designs.

I also used gesso on all the flowers and pearls, and I used some on the paper to give it a chalk board effect.  This came out better than I expected it to.  I just love it.
