Good Morning Divas

Hey Girls,

  I totally have been MIA from my blog I need a time out I know heheheh!!! But anyways, I have been a busy little bee making handmade gifts for my co-workers and just had a blast doing it.  So I have made some handmade envelopes with cards inside you will see i show the inside of 1 of them not all just so you get the idea.  And I made some ornaments of course totally inspired by Arlene ( butterflykisses) on youtube.  I also took a try at the photo displays now those were super easy and fun to do here is where i got my inspiration - check her out and go make one or two hehehe.  Thank you so much ladies for stopping by and taking a sneaky peak at my creations you are so appreciated.  Have A Blessed Christmas !!!!!!!!

Hey Divas,

  I hope all you super fab ladies here are some cards I have been working on some B-day cards made out of handmade policy envelopes that I got from they sell the template for the envelope super easy to put together I super love it. 
  I also was feeling like altering a couple of my comp books I super love doing those inside and out.  I was watching a video by laura from following the paper trail and she did a expandable type of book and the front cover i fell in love with so i scraplifted that idea and made it my own and put it on my comp book and it was just using your flower punches YIPPY!!!
 Last but not least my altered clothespin man oh man do i love altering those and Jules at the Julebox sells those kits every so often so when she does I am all over it this is my second one that i purchased and altered and she gives so many goodies you totally dont have to dig into your stash to add anything LOVE IT!!!  And Jules packaging when you buy anything from her is just nothing but amazing every piece is prefectly wrapped and looking pretty and not to mention she is super sweet.  Thank you so much for stopping by my blog and taking a looky loo.

Mucho hugs, Anna

Hello Divas, here is an altered record that was inspired by Anna Feared from More Paper Then Shoes.  I went to the goodwill and spent a buck and bedazzled this record and I even used hoarding yummies YUP i did it :-) I had such a blast putting this together.

Here is a jar that I found in my kitchen cabinets who knows where that came from but you know I had to alter this baby and again used hoarding yummies like that lace on the top and bottom of the jar from Wild Orchid Crafts I so heart it. 

Here is the side view of my jar since you couldnt see the purple spray that i used super duper GORGE!!!  Thank you so much ladies for stopping by and taking a sneaky peak your awesome!!!!  Mucho Hugs, Anna

Happy Friday Ladies!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well yesterday I was in a crafty mood and decided to alter some things. Now the jar is a syrup jar from trader joes that my friend gave me and I used yummy IAMROSES on it and a handmade stick pin and other yummies from my stash. I also altered a die cut that I got from Elaine (sillyfroghoneybee - youtube) she sent me an awesome rak of diecuts that I didnt have so I looked through all my paint and picked a color that i dont normally use as a challenge and then altered a mini comp book to go inside that i got from the dollar store it comes 3 to a pack it was super easy and fast. The pink twisty flower is from wired yarn that I got from Joanns for a buck LOVE IT!!!

Altered Items

Hey Divas, these are some clay molds I made I so heart them and they were so easy to create using ( Moldmuse - etsy store) I have anopther mold on the way to make a different kind of flower I cant wait.  Dont think it is too much working creating your own molds or it takes too much time because I was sitting in front of the tv and I made 60 molds and cooked them all for 18 minutes and WAALAA I also added a shiney glaze made by sculpey that is why they are shiney but at the end of the day each pack of clay that i bought cost me $1.25 on sale ( Sculpey ) and I easily made over 25 molds from each pack depending on what size flowers i was making.  How much do we spend on buying these from our craft stores and only getting between 6-10 flowers COME ON GIRLS it is in the budget LOLOLOL!!!!  Well you super fab ladies have an awesome day and I will be back with a couple of pics of my design team projects YIPPY!!!   Mucho Hugs, Anna

This is the top of the altered cigar box i did for Kay using the same paper line as the mini.  I used paper on the bottom that matches the one on top and the bos is purple that was distressed and the flowers on top to the left were fussy cut from the paperline and the butterflies.  i used 2 different laces all around the box and I removed the latches and put a vintage piece of jewelry that is goldish it is a butterfly.  The inside of the box i used paper to line the bottom and diecuts from that paperline on top I will be filling it with some goodies since the mini that i made was supposed to go inside but hmmmmm yeah not so mini LOLOLOL!!!

This is a mini that I did a swap with my friend Kay (kayluvs2scrap - youtube) This mini was made from policy envelopes that I have a template of that i bought from (OHHLALAVINTAGETREASURES.COM) I so heart this template it is super easy to cut I did it on craft paper that i bought from Micheals and I used K&C paper the Fauna one. So the last picture is the tags that go inside the envelopes.
