ANOTHER Altered Letter "A"

Hello everyone! 
I just finished up an altered wooden letter for my friend Angela. 
I decided to do a little stitching on the paper. 
And NO, I wasn't trying to make it straight.
I never would've attempted to sew on paper if I wanted it straight.
I'm not a sewer by any means & am still getting used to my "Pixie" sewing machine. Lol!

Here it is!




The paper I used to cover the letter is from My Mind's Eye "Oooh La La"- Over the Top (discontinued)
All the yellow flowers are I am Roses, and the white flowres & cream rosebud are from Wild Orchid crafts.
 I sprayed them all with Perfect Pearls mist in Perfect Pearl.
The silver filigree corner is from Wild Orchid Crafts & the bling is Recollections.

I made a cute little bow out of muslin for an extra touch. ;)

Let me know what you think!

Secret Keepsake Box

I have been DYING to make one of these for the longest time!
I saw a few on Youtube from some talented ladies (Links at the bottom of the post) so I decided to make one for myself!
I will make a video eventually, but here's some pictures in the meantime:







I used papers from a few different collections. 
I mainly used A Ladies' Diary by Graphic 45, but also used Prima Almanac (stamps on front) and Nature Garden (inside liner for bottom)

The cream trim & black lace inside is from Creating is Fun.
{SALE!! 25% off all orders with code: summer25}

All the metal embellishments are Tim Holtz. My current favorite is the wing! I think I've used it on all of my projects ever since I got the pack. Lol!

All the flowers (aside from the big newsprint one, Prima) are from I am Roses.
The dress form stamp is from My Mind's Eye Lost & Found "Blush" set

I loved making this!! Might do another one in the near future.

Here's links to the Youtube vids that inspired me!

Original tutorial (I think!)

Thanks for checking out my project, I'll be back with another one soon!

Time flies! {An altered letter}

Geez, it's been a while since I blogged! 
I have been working on projects. Too many.
I have about 3 started, but unfinished.

I have some pictures to share of an altered letter I made for a friend.
And a video!!
I used a lit of Tim Holtz & a lot of I am Roses.
My two favorites.
I kinda went a little crazy with my perfect pearls mist, but that's okay.
Who doesn't love a little (or a lot) of glitter?

Enjoy!







I had a lot of fun making this. :)
My friend liked it, so that's what counts!

Here's a video going over what I did 
{Sorry for the glare!}

I"m super excited for my next project that I'm sharing.. so keep an eye out for it!
