~* Back-to-School Photo Display for my Sis *~

Aloha Everyone!
Sharing a photo display I created using coasters for my sis to display her kiddies' school photos.  The mats accommodate 2-1/2" x 3-1/2" wallet size photos.  I used the Crate Paper Pretty Party paper stack (don't ya love the strawberry paper :)).  I distressed the edges with Antique Linen and also added faux stitching with my pen.  I colored up the Greeting Farm images from the Oliver and Amelia Little Dreamer set with Copic markers.  Love those backpacks, aren't they adorable?  I used a bunch of Wild Orchid Craft flowers (all the paper roses are from Wild Orchid Crafts as well as the double layered crochet flower}...{Going to submit this project into the Wild Orchid Craft Challenge - Summer Flowers.}  I added some twine around the photo mats.  The blue one is from Doodlebug and the pink one is from kawaiigoodies on etsy.  I also added some buttons which are from kawaiigoodies.  The little wood rulers are from Maya Road.  I added some wood letters from Walmart which I painted with acrylic paint and then added Frosted Lace Stickles to them.  I also added Frosted Lace Stickles to the wings on her backpack.  I used some Stampin' Up! products including the punch and the trim to tie the two pieces together.  I also added some pearls - to the center of the crochet flower, the heart pearl near the "K" and the pearls on the tab.  I handwrote the "2012" on the tab.
Thanks for stopping by have a lovely week!

~* Prima Almanac Teenie Weenie Mini :) *~

Aloha Everyone!
Hope you're having a wonderful week so far!  Can you believe it's mid-August already?  Where did the time go?
Here is my teenie weenie mini that I created using the following goodies from kawaiigoodies:

  • mini glassine bags (2" x 3.5")
  • script stamped cloth deco tape
I cut out the little images from the paper and layered it on the designer papers.  I edged everything with Distress Ink in Antique Linen.  I connected the bags with kraft cardstock and the back binding is made of the cloth deco tape.  I had a lot of fun creating this teenie weenie project.
Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!*hugs* and Much aloha~!Steph :)

~* Prima "So Cute" Mini Altered Paper Bag with Tags *~

Aloha Everyone!

Happy August!  Hope you're all doing well!  We all have been under-the-weather in my household so it's been tough :(, but I found some time last nite to create!  This project is one of my Creative Design Team projects for kawaiigoodies on etsy!  I love Soury's store.  It's filled with wonderful kraft goodness to vintage rubber stamps to washi tapes...

I used the following goodies from kawaiigoodies to make my mini altered paper bag with tags :):
  • mini kraft lunch bag
  • divine twine
  • small manila tags
  • cotton lace adhesive deco tape
  • buttons
  • mini clothespin
I used the Prima "So Cute" paper collection - it's so cute, hee hee!  I made it a little shabby chic by adding acrylic paint on the edges of the paper and the images that I cut out.  I also added some of my own halfback pearl and trinket pearl trims.  I altered the mini clothespin with a button and twine and pearls.  The tags are covered with the designer papers and edged with the paint.  I added three colors of divine twine to each tag.  I also added designer paper to the inside of the bag.  Super fun!

Hope you have a lovely weekend!
Happy crafting!

~* Shabby Chic Altered Mini Canvas featuring Rainy Daze Gorjuss Girl *~

Aloha Everyone!
Boy, it's been a busy week and weekend.  Had to work today (Saturday) and have to work tomorrow too.  I really wanted to craft some more, hehe.  
Glad I was able to finish this mini altered canvas for my friend, Friday.  It's a little thank you I'm going to send to her because she did something really nice for me.  Anyhoo, hope she likes it :).
I used the simply gorjuss rubber stamp - Rainy Daze that I purchased from All That Scraps.  Looks like they don't have it in stock anymore, but maybe they will bring more later?  I colored her up with my Copics (I added a bit of Frosted Lace Stickles) and fussy-cut her out.  The paper is from the Prima Romantique collection.  I love it.  I added some Antique White paint all around to make it shabby chic even the wood stand.  Those are pretty Wild Orchid Craft roses that I distressed with paint.  I added a bit of pearl trim.  The wings were created with a Maya Road trim that I glimmer misted with Crushed Shells.  The letters are from K&Company.  I thought the colors went well.  I also added the sheer ribbon/fused pearl trim at the top and the bottom of the canvas.
I'm entering this into All That Scraps Wednesday Challenge-Anything Goes!
Thanks for stopping by and hope you all are having a wonderful weekend!
big *hugs* and Much aloha~!
