Botanical Tea Card and gift bag

Hi all and welcome to this weeks Creative inspiration project for Mad About Scrappin.  I am still revisiting  a previous kit Leanne had sent.  I was pleasantly surprised at just how much of this kit I still had, even after using it to create with last week.  So I thought that whilst I had iut our of the hoard vault I would create a gift bag and matching card for my friend as well.

The bag was a plain white one that I had managed to pick up in a cheap craft supply store recently, and the card base is from a previous kit.

 Well readers even after 3 cups of coffee to try to kick start the old grey matter, I really haven't got a great deal to say, these gorgeous glamour shots really do a lot of the talking for me.

I have used up a lot of supplies from my previous kits, and few pieces of bling from my stash.

Well readers, that is is it from me this week.  Thanks for stopping by and as always please click the links below to see what my fellow creative team has to share.  Also be sure to check out what kits are available this month in the store....

~✿New Beginnings✿~

Hi all, I am super excited to share with you all today my first project for Tsunami Rose Designs.  I have to say I just love all of Daisy's kits and it was so hard to choose. Daisy is the owner and graphic designer of Tusnami Rose Design  However I thought, for my first project, I would try out this gorgeous butterfly themed kit below.

I really love the gorgeous pinks and purples, with just a hint of green that Daisy has used throughout this kit.  My project was to alter a gift bag with a vintage feel and this journal kit lent itself to the task perfectly.

I have managed to grab a few process shots this time....

I started with one of these larger Kraft gift bags measuring 13cm x 24cm and layered it up both sides with this lovely text print

I also did some fussy cutting.  I added glossy accents and flat back pearls.   

Sorry guys, but that's where my process pics end and the glamour shots begin.  After this I got into my zone and just totally forgot to take photos...

Altered Altoid Tin

Hey all, welcome back.  Today I am really excited to share with you all my altered altoid tin.  This is a project I created for FPCS and I loved how it turned out so much that I didn't just make one....I had to go back and make another, which you will see further down the post.

I was totally inspired by Laurie Diane Moore, here are a few of her links.

Please be sure to pop over and give some love to Lauries, she really is a sweet lady and I cherish her friendship!

I really do love anything old...I mean really old and rustic looking.  The sort of old that you may find buried in an old shed or even in someone's attic....that kinda old.   Faith sent me this tin.

 It started out as a little Travel caddy, possibly for housing sewing supplies, but I totally re-purposed it looks like a rusty old antique tin!!  The little assemblage inside is comprised of bits n bobs from FPCS.  The only thing that was mine was the frame and digi print.

This look was much easier to achieve than I ever thought possible.
I simply used some scrumpled up tissue paper, gesso, modpodge, Reeves course texture paste and Lindy Stamp gang sprays in Gossamer Gold; Burnished Brass, Golden Dubloons and Dark Chocolate Truffles. 

   I also heavily inked the tissue paper with a mix of Tim Holtz Distress Inks in Walnut Stain and Vintage photo.  I then added some Blue Patina Perfect Pearls Mist.

 I adhered the charms and metal embellisments with E6000 and the rest was glued into place with glossy accents.  So I will stop yakking now and let you all enjoy the glamour pics

  and this last pic below is the two little tins together....
All the metal charms, knobs, handles and chain are from Faith Pocock Craft Studio as is the small glass bottle.

Well readers that's all I have for you today, thanks for stopping by and taking a look, please come and like Faith's Store on Facebook and check out all the latest goodies she has for sale by clicking the links below.

Revisiting an old kit

Hey there everyone, thanks for joining me.  Today I have my Creative inspiration project for Mad About Scrappin.  This week I thought I would revisit a previous kit from Leanne and upcycle a few leftovers I had stashed away for that rainy day.  I have pulled out and dusted off that gorgeous paper collection Botanical Tea from Graphic 45 and I was actually nicely surprised at just how much I had left.

I had been looking at this paper mache lid for quite sometime, waiting for inspiration to strike. Which it did, on Thursday!!

I was in dire need of a little gift for a friend.  Lucky for me this friend just looooves everything shabby chic.  So I took this plain paper mache lid and created this cute and very shabby chic little wall hanging plaque.

Sorry guys there aren't a lot process pics to share and really not much to tell either.  I first gave the lid a couple of coats of gesso and then proceeded to layer up the inside with papers, a small frame which has this gorgeous vintage lady photo inside.

I then added a layer of lace, flower pearl trim and adorned the bottom half with these lovely flowers and chipboard word.

Once the front was all done, I added some white seam binding for the hanger and a covered the back with the back of the paper pad.  So it is a little thicker and glossy too.  I thought, with it being that little bit stronger it would help keep the seam binding in place more or better :)

 As usual guys here are all the glamour pics....

I hope you have enjoyed  revisiting this paper pad with me this week's project.  As always guys....please check out the links below to see what other happenings have been going on over at Mad About Scrappin.
