~* The Beginnings of my Hello Kitty Filofax Pocket Organizer *~

Aloha!
Sharing the beginnings of my Hello Kitty Filofax Pocket Organizer.  I didn't like the dividers and the colored sheets that came with my Filofax so I switched everything up with Hello Kitty and cute colors :)!  I made my own coversheet and dividers...Thanks for looking :)!  I'm having fun getting more organized with my "to-go" organizer!
Here's my video:


Have a great day :)!

~* "Just Breathe" Whimsical "Shabby Sweet" Project using Sushi Dolls "Wind Through My Hair" *~

Aloha!
Sharing another Design Team project for Silly Shy Sushi Dolls, a.k.a. Sushi Dolls.  I just decorated a piece of chipboard.  I think I'll display this at the office.  It came out whimsical and "shabby sweet" :).  I used the beautiful, mixed media type digi image called "Wind Through My Hair".  I love her!  I'm so happy that Susi made this gorgeous image available to purchase!  I colored her with my Copic markers and then added Crystal Stickles to her eyes and dress.  
I embellished the project with tons of Wild Orchid Crafts flowers and embellishments and lace, bling, a Stampin' Up! rose cabochon, trinket pearls tied in knots, satin trim, halfback pearls, Webster's Pages' trims, a doily that I doodled "Just Breathe" on top (saying from one of my fave movies, Ever After), a butterfly metal piece, fabric flowers, Petaloo flowers, Chinese braided trim, heart beads, crystals, satin rosette...

~* SNSC Altered Wood Clothespin using Handyman Lucky *~

Aloha!
Today, I'm back with another Design Team Project for the Sweet Nothings Stamp Co.  I made an altered wood clothespin for my Dad's Birthday.  I used the adorable "Handyman Lucky" digi image.  I colored him up with my Copic markers.  I used the super cute Amy Tangerine Ready Set Go paper pad.  I first adhered the woodgrain paper, which I distressed with my distressing tool.  I cut a strip of the super cute yellow house paper and added Glossy Accents to it.  I also cut the cute house paper and cut it into a fishtail banner and added dashed lines to outline the paper.  I tied some burlap twine and adhered some Making Memories Vintage Epoxy Letters.
On the back, I used the same woodgrain paper and cut out speech bubbles from one of the designer papers.  I adhered some Tim Holtz alphas, which I added some Crackle Accents to.  The yellow house paper strips have Glossy Accents on them and I added a cute heart bead and drew some dashed lines around it.  I also added a little piece of the cute house paper to the bottom.
Hope my Dad likes it!  A very simple, practical project for a guy :)!

~* Shabby Chic Altered Canvas Fairy Shadow Box *~

Aloha!!
I'm sharing an altered canvas I made for my friend Jenn's Fairy Day Challenge.  I envisioned it as a little shadow box :).
Here are the rules:
*Must have a fairy in your project - Used the adorable Wee Stamps for Whimsy Stamps "Silver Fairy" image that I colored with my Copic markers.
*Must use Stickles or glitter or glamor dust - Used Diamond Stickles on the fairy image and all the paper flowers.
*Must have at least 2 natural elements ~flowers, vines, moss, sticks, rocks, twigs, or feathers - Used tons of flowers (fabric and Wild Orchid Crafts) and moss.
*Must have green somewhere in your project - Used designer papers with green on them and the flower center is green and the hidden green moss
*Must use at least 1 lace in your project - Used two pretty laces - one from Hobby Lobby and one from Wild Orchid Crafts.

I also used some crystal sprays, fabric butterfly, seam binding, crochet flower, and pearl heart from Wild Orchid Crafts; trinket pearls I tied in knots; children jewelry that I cut apart (hanging crystal butterflies and the beaded pearl trim at the top), and a heart bead.  
I'm also entering this project into:
Magnolia-licious and Wee Stamps Challenge Blog - Luscious Lace
Had a ton of fun creating this project!

~* Shabby Chic Altered Pastry Glassine Bag using Kaisercraft Sweet Nothings *~

Aloha!
Hope everyone is having a great week so far!  My week has been okay...I'm still sick and sound like a froggie :(.  
Here is an altered pastry glassine bag that I made using Kaisercraft Sweet Nothings.  I got this bag with my pizza order from one of the eateries near my work.  They had put napkins in it and I immediately thought of using it for a crafty project.
I used a bunch of the papers and a doilie.  Distressed all the edges.  I added Wild Orchid Crafts guipire lace, some lace from my friend Tammy, and some May Arts crochet trim.  There is lots of yummy Wild Orchid Crafts roses, hydrangea (I folded in half), and cherry blossoms.  I fussy-cut the butterfly out of the collection.  I added the pretty Whimsy Stamps Wee Stamps Hopeful image.  I colored her with my Copic markers.  I also used some pretty Webster's Pages trims.  
I created a "card" to write on by adhering some of the designer papers to a piece of chipboard.

On the back, I adhered some of the designer paper that I distressed.  I added a diecut and put my info on it.  Added some pretty lace from Tammy and layered the cute heart trim on top.  Also, added the diecut border strip at the top.

~* Simple Cute Teacher's Gifts using Sushi Dolls "Sushi Teacher" digi *~

Aloha!
Sharing another Design Team project for Silly Shy Sushi Dolls, a.k.a. Sushi Dolls.  
I created these quick and simple teacher gifts by request.  I was to use the 5" x 7" clear crystal magnetic frames where 4" x 6" photos would be inserted.  I used some cute Sassafraslass paper from my friend, Rina.  I colored up the adorable "Sushi Teacher" digi with my Copic markers and added Stickles to her glasses and Glossy Accents to her apple.
I enlarged the apple and also colored it up with my Copic markers and added Glossy Accents.  The images are adhered at the edges to allow the insertion of the photos.  I stamped each letter out using a cute Studio g stamp set.  Then used to Stampin Up! punches.  I also added the star banner stickers to the top which were border strips that I cut in half.  I added Stickles around the banner pieces. 
Here is some info where you can find Susi's FABBIE digi images:

~* Grungey Chic Altered Vintage Paper Bag using Prima Romance Novel *~

Aloha!
Sharing another grungey chic project!  I created this card using a vintage paper bag.  I love creating projects out of paper bags!  I used the gorgeous Prima Romance Novel collection.  I distressed all the edges of the paper with my distressing tool.  I added lots of yummy crochet laces (Kaisercraft and May Arts) and tons of Wild Orchid Crafts roses.  I distressed the roses with gesso.  I also added the pretty pink guipire lace from The Piece By Piece on Etsy.  There is a journaling card for the pocket with the papers.  
A little reminder that I am having a giveaway on my YouTube channel.  If you like grungey chic, you will love the Tsunami Rose Designs "Polished Lackluster" Printable Journal Kit!
