~* Shabby Chic Altered Paper Bag with Altered Clothespin *~

Aloha Friends!

Here is my last project as Guest Designer for CraftyCity.com for the month of November.

I altered a paper bag using the beautiful floral papers from the docrafts Papermania Simply Floral paper stack from CraftyCity.com.  I then added Stickles to some of the floral images on the papers to give it some dimension.  
I used pretty tutu trim and pink pom pom trim from The Piece By Piece on Etsy.  I also used a frame cabochon and pearl with crystal embellishment from The Piece by Piece.   
I then added clusters of the beautiful Wild Orchid Crafts paper flowers from CraftyCity.com and added Stickles to them.  I also altered a little gold glittered clothespin by adding a Wild Orchid Crafts rose to it and I also added Stickles to it.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
*hugs* and Much aloha,
Steph :)

~* Dream Big! Creative Journal as Guest Designer for CraftyCity.Com *~

Aloha Friends!

Here is my 2nd project as Guest Designer for CraftyCity.com for the month of November.  I created a creative journal page using the beautiful Carta Bella "Paris Girl" collection.  I used several of the papers to create this page.  I also cut out some of the images to embellish my page.  I did some handlettering and used stickers, deco tape, and washi tape.




I had actually created this page a week ago, but didn't have a chance to post it.  Sending much love and aloha to Paris. 

Will post video soon.

*hugs* and Much aloha, 
Steph :)

~* Shabby Chic Altered Target Dollar Spot Frame *~

Aloha Friends!

I am the Guest Designer for CraftyCity.com for the month of November!  I'm excited to share with you my first project.  


It is an altered Target Dollar Spot frame that was gifted to me.  I used the beautiful floral paper from the docrafts Papermania Simply Floral paper stack from CraftyCity.com and distressed it a little with gesso.  I then distressed the frame with Prima Finnabair Art Basics Light Paste and then with gesso.  I added clusters of the beautiful Wild Orchid Crafts paper flowers from CraftyCity.com and distressed them with gesso.  I added ephemera, the cute birdie and the leaves, from the Crate Paper Maggie Holmes collection Confetti.  I distressed them with gesso as well.


Tell Archana, Steph "sweetcraftychick" sent you :)!

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

*hugs* and Much aloha,
Steph :)
