Altered tissue box


I have been suffering from chronic flu for the past few months and accumulated loads of empty tissue boxes. So decided to alter it for the purpose of my pen and other items storage. Due to horrible weather outside and what com es with that a very grumpy mood decided to brighten up my days and use K&Co 'Small Wonders' paper. Left the other 2 pages only with green ribbon and pearl beads trim so I can put it against other storage on my desk.


Here are some pictures!






Will put my project for the following challenges:

Smash Book


On Sunday I spoke with my Husband about owning a Smash Book from K&Co and how difficult it was to get it here in UK. I looked online but the prices were quite high so I felt I will just make one myself. So with that though yesterday I went to my local Hobbycraft to purchase some neccessities. To my greatest surprise I saw the new collection in the front of the store:' Smash Scrapbooking Book'.  I was in seventh heaven and quickly purchased all the goodies I wanted.
 
Here is the picture of what I have bought on that day...



 
 
 
So this morning as I worked late I decided to make my first arrempt to start a smash book page. It was very quick job and I just love all the ready decorated pages. After spraying mists, inking and stamping the background here I embellished the page. Here are few pictures of the completed page. 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
This page was so fun to complete and all I had to do was stick things I liked or disliked (like the spider) and Voila! I really advice anyone who loves srapping to try this form of craft! I am hooked!!!!!

Magnolia card

Decided to take a little brake from making all those mini albums and made a Magnolia card. I intentionally left it without any sentiment so I can use it for Birthdays or Mother's Day (Polish Mother's Day is on the 26th May) or just a friendship card. 


I used :


  •  Magnolia free digi stamp and painted it with Tim Holtz distress ink and used Perfect Pearls from Ranger to color hair and angel wings
  • Papers are from DCWV collections: Nanna Nursery, Madly in Love and the corners are from Once upon a Time paper stacks
  • Scalloped ribbon is from Dovecraft Cupcake Boutique 
  • Fabric leaves are from my stash
  • Flowers are also from Dovecraft Cupcake Boutique
  • Flat pearl and the stick pin are from my stash.



I am planing to use the card in the following challenges:



Here are few pictures of the card. 







I hope you like it! Personally I just love the shine where I used perfect pearls. Enjoy your evening. XXX

'You are so sweet' cupcake mini album

Hello! As mentioned in my earlier post I was working on another mini album. This time it was a cupcake shaped chipboard album and I used Dovecraft Cupcake Boutique collection. This was a very fun and quick project. It took me only 3-4 days doing in couple of hours a day.  Sorry for the heavy pictures post I should have really make a video of it but just could not be bothered to set up my camcorder. Especially as my Husband is playing X-box again!!!!

I am putting my mini cover up for a challenge on:

One Stop Craft Challenge - Anything goes
Crafty Boots - Flowers
The ABC Challenge - J for Just as You like


So before the weekend I decided to visit my local Hobbycraft store and spotted that Cupcake boutique collections! I knew straight away what I will be doing with this!!!! I loved it all except the paper pad! It was too color full for me. So used some papers from Vintage Collection by Grace Taylor and Small Wonders paper pad from K&Company!














































I'm still not sure what I am going to do with the album. Either it will be a gift for someone close to me or I will just use it myself. Was thinking about putting up pictures of my nieces and nephews there but I'm not entirely sure. Ok for the supplies I used:


  • Vintage Romance papers by Grace Taylor 
  • Small Wonders papers by K&Co
  • Dovecraft Cupcake Boutique Collection: 
                 Wooden Elements#
                 Addhesive toppers
                 Paper Blossoms
                 Accordian Sticker Flowers
                 Resign Flowers
                 Scalloped ribbon pack
                 Fabric brads
  • Dovecraft Tea Party paper lace doilies
  • Dovecarft Tea Party pink satin ribbon
  • Dovecraft green satin ribbon
  • lace from my stash
  • beads and flat pearls also from my stash
  • I used glossy accents from Ranger
  • Bijoux Cupcake charms



I hope you like the mini. Many thanks for looking and have a great evening!
