Jewelry box for Christmas

I saw these small wooden jewelry boxes in the unfinished wood section at Hobby Lobby and decided to try to alter it for a Christmas gift. I have a certain someone in mind for it but not sure she will like it (but sure am hoping she will)! lol I first stained it and then started covering parts. I then spent several hours looking for a sketch to make an easel card for the top. I added a magnet to keep it shut when lying flat so won't just flop around when they open the lid. She loves flowers and bling so added plenty! I also inked all the edges for a more antique look. I added a little heart charm to finish it off. I did have fun working on this and hope to make a few more if this one goes over well. I am entering in the following challenges:

Creatalicious- sketch

Delightful challenges-flower power

Creative Cowgirls- anything goes

Three of the ladies decided to add our own little challenge by using the sketch from 2S4Y. I had a lot of fun making this card and can't wait to see what my challenge buddies have done as well.

Altered calendar

I saw the little two year planners offered from Michael's for just one dollar and immediately thought of my sister-in-law. She dutifully keeps track of everything and I know she would love this. I knew I could not alter it with too many 3-D effects and still have it fit into the plastic protective cover. So, I chose to use my littlest roses. I took several apart to create matching buds. I used the little Tilda stamp holding eggs but replaced the eggs with roses as my sil also loves roses. I then added one of my favorite verses to the front. I think this verse is also very accurate for a day planner! And of course, there just has to be a little bling so added stickles here and there. My sil also keeps a daily journal so am going to alter one to go with this if I can.

here it is with the plastic cover.
Challenges I am entering this in are:

Fussy and Fancy-sketch

Creative Stamps-favorite stamps....I do love my Mags!

Fairy Fun Fridays-make your own flowers

Aly's Sunday- music

Twins' Card

I quickly threw this card together last night so I can get the ornaments mailed off. The shower is the 6th so bet I will already be late with getting things there. I think right now, with everything going on tho, I am happy to just be getting it mailed. lol I made a pocket on the top inside for the gift card and then searched for a nice Twin poem. After getting it all glued it dawned on me that they have not been "birthed" yet so had to change that a little. lol I do hope the mom and dad will like the ornaments as this card too.

Ribbon Spool Ornament

I am in an ornament swap with two other ladies. We are to make each other a Christmas ornament to exchange on Dec. first. I am just playing around with a few ideas to see what I can come up with. This little one is made from a ribbon spool. I colored the image with pencils then cut him out with a nesties along with the matching scalloped nestie. ( cut a second set out for the back also but no image.......just a place to sign the ornament.) I then used the circle nestie to cut out the center of the red one and inserted a "Shake it" shaker box pouch. I painted red stickles on the scalloped edges and then used green stickles to decorate. Of course there is Icicle stickles on the image too......just gotta love that bling! I added the green bead string around the center edge to accent that some. I used a leaf punch and a snowflake punch topped with a prima rose. Added a bit more stickles to them and a few plastic snowflakes on top and called it done. This one is just my proto type but if I choose to use it for the swap, the two I make the ladies will have Dianmond Dust inside so it will be a shaker box. I would like some honest comments on this as I do not want to give the ladies something that looks too cheap. Thanks for any critique you can offer.

Challenges I am entering hoping for good honest criticism:

Incy Wincy-anything goes

Crafty Purple Frog- anything goes

A Spoon Full of Sugar- relish to embellish

Fussy and Fancy-winter

Wee Memories- free for all

Pollycraft-its chill time

Thank you for stopping by and thank you even more if you left me a comment! God Bless You!

Another altered tin

Well, I managed to get one more done tonight! I am having fun with these much fun, I have ordered more and more of them from my good "shopping buddy". lol I used a sketch from "Just Cute Bears and Friends" forgetting that I had to use an animal! So won't be entering there this week. lol I also am using this for a private challenge between some good friends where we need to use at least one snowflake and have a Christmas theme. I inked the edges for an antique look. I love these tiny Tilda's and cannot wait until more are available!

Lil' Magnolia angel tin.

WOW! I am so impressed with me! lol I had the entire day to play and had little interuptions! I actually got a couple things done. Hubby is off to California visiting his mama so didn't even have to take a break to cook. Of course it may be back to my mama's in the am but at least I played and played and played today. lol Here is another gift card tin I altered. I used two embossing folders....I have had forever but seldom use! I roughed up the edges with the help of my handy dandy TH tool. I also inked around them and added stickles. I do think this one is a bit on the gaudy side with all the gold stickles but think it will show nicely on the tree. ( am trying to convince myself anyway!) I also sprayed the tin (just before adding the image) with glimmer mist. So this ornament is all shiny. Now only 14 more to go before Christmas.

I am entering the following challenges:

ABC Christmas- got the sketch from here but we also need to use three V's.......I am doing vertical, vintage, and very sparkly.

Twin's ornaments

My nephew is having twin boys! I made the gift card tins into ornaments and made the inside a place to add a couple photos depicting their first Christmas. I thought that these little keepsake tins might be a nice gift......anyway I am hoping. I didn't want to make them exactly the same but did want them to be alike. I used the little bear stocking stamp from Bildmalarna and cut the little fellows apart. They were the perfect size for working with these tins. I hope the parents will like this attempt at making a keepsake ornament for their new little ones.

Challenges I am entering them in:

Gift Card Holder for Craftalicious

Altered Caddy

A friend and I decided to take a shopping trip this past weekend just to have a little get-away. She had not been out of town for over a year so figured it was about time. We went to Boise for a weekend of shopping and I came across two of these ugly caddies and thought I would try my hand at altering. I have never altered too much and it is something I have wanted to try. Besides, I have a ton of cards now after a year of creating them, I figure it is time I move on to something else. So, here is the beginning object.

I had a hard time trying to decide just what to do with it but started by removing the plate off the front. I wanted this to be for someone other than a mom. lol I then decided to go with a more distressed feel instead of bright and cheery. Several years ago I purchased a tote full of paper from Costco. While at Costco, I thought they were just gorgeous and such a great bargain. Upon bringing them home, I decided they were not all that great and have not used hardly any. Once again I am trying to use things out of my stash so out comes this unused pile of neglected papers. I am still not too fond of them but chose three to use anyway. I thought this little Hanglar stamp was perfect for such a caddy. I also used some "melted" flowers along with some newly purchased ones. I did buy the Tim Holtz bookplates while in Boise but that is the only new things I used so mostly keeping to my "use stash" vow. With all that said, here is the finished caddy.

Challenges I hope this qualifies for are:

The Sisterhood of Crafters-color combo brown, blue and cream

ABC Christmas- U- under the tree

Moving Along with the Times-anything but a card

Pollycraft Monday- Anything goes

Stamp, Scrap & Doodle-Open theme

Flourishes-Beauty of the gift

Creatalicious- colors-pink, brown and green

Lots to Do- vintage

Other Lovelies-Embellishments

Sarah Hurley- flowers.....Thanks so much Lisa for the reference! Hugs to you.

Thank you so much for stopping by. God bless you!

Halloween at Lexi's!

Lexi has some wonderful new Halloween stamps and we all got to play with the new ones! I chose little Vampire bear for my card. I had a lot of fun thinking of ways to use stash up on this one. All the paper is at least a year old. The bat stickers and spider are even older. As I was rummaging thru everything, I found some Halloween rubons so decided to add a web to the lower corner. This is the first time I think I used a rubon on a card. The little candy corn charms are a couple years old as well as the bread tie "Happy". Then to top it all off I cut out the "Halloween" from the confetti package label. And as most always, I had to add a little stickles here and there as well as a few pearls. Please come over and join our "Spooky" challenge at Lexi's Creations!

Craftalicious Autumn color challenge

(not to mention the beads that were from way back over 20 years ago when I was into jewelry making. lol) Of course I had to add a little stickles and a few pearls to finish it off.

Happy Halloween boys!

Another challenge from Bev! We picked the sketch from 7 kids College Fund, which I turned sideways. Again we chose a fall/Halloween theme. I made this for my son's boys. The little ghost tags pull out of the pocket with a little surprise for each grandson. The front of the card has a mixture of embellishments....from homemade flowers to ghost and bat ribbons cut apart. I even doodled a few extra vines on the pumpkins. I used my new stamp from CC Designs which I think is absolutely adorable. I also challenged myself to dig deep into my stash and use the ever forgotten stickers. lol I hope my grandsons enjoy receiving my card. Thank you so much for stopping by.

Picture challenge for Lexi's

Our challenge at Lexi's Creations this time is to incorporate a photograph on your project. I used her digi sentiment stamp "Happy Birthday". I chose to make a card for my husbands upcoming birthday. He will be 60 next month so wanted to make a card a little more special by adding his baby picture. I found a tutorial on how to make this slider peek-a-boo card and knew it would be perfect for this project. I love how his baby photo is showing thru the window but when you open the card it is a recent picture. My husband is absolutely not into frills and bling so made this card a little plain. His favorite colors are blue and brown so chose those for this project also. I hope he likes this. Please come and join us at Lexi's! Thanks for stopping by and please come back soon!

No one really knew what the others would chose other than the subject. We were then required to use what they sent. We were allowed to add whatever else we would like to. I hope the others enjoyed this as much as I did. It was so fun to see just how each made such fabulous creations with the exact items.
