An Altered Box Cover

Hi blog, sorry I have been neglecting you. Today I wanted to share this fun project that I did last month. I’m sure many of us have got empty boxes that we tend to just toss out. Well, here is an easy way to give the box a second chance.

 photo AlteredBox_4Aug14_zps74eb7e5e.jpgWhat I’ve done is to cover the box cover with pattered paper and then used my scraps to “draw” out a scene within the frame.

Here is a close up of the layering.

Now, I have a pretty little frame for my reading corner.

Cheers,

I have two cards to share using our Handi Scandi collection paired with the lovely supplies from Elizabeth Craft Designs :

Congratulation cards with a pair of cute glittery owls. The die cut the words out like butter and all I did was layer two die cuts together for more dimension.

The second card can be used as a Birthday card or an encouragement card. I used the Peel off stickers and watercolor paper from Elizabeth Crafts. The balloon sticker outlines can out easier and all I had to do was stick them on the watercolor paper and paint away. So fancy cutting later, I had pretty balloons for my card. I add a strip of our lovely vellum for some shimmer.

Believe In Adventure

I can’t wait to share this layout with you. I “heart” the Handi Sandi line and the colors just make me so happy. The deep blue pattered paper really eye catching and draws the eye to the layout.

Here are some closeups of the layout:

 photo Adventure2_SB_31Jul14_zps245c2460.jpg

I’ve used a mixture of embellishments from the line and the kraft and glitter work so well together.
 photo Adventure3_SB_31Jul14_zps7cb14fef.jpg

I must say the wood veneers are cute and I like the little bird so much that I made a nest for it out of our blue twine.

Of course this layout is now hanging on my living room wall right now. Hope you have been scrapping too.

Recent RRBF Projects

Today I have two projects to share. These are my DT assignments over at RRBF last month.

Paper Cones

I’ve love how easy it is to make these paper cones and the kids had blast just punching out the shapes from the patterned paper. To make the flower, we crumpled the punched out shapes and layered two hexagons on top of one another.

Be Silly

Sometimes we just need to be at the right place and the right time. I totally love these photos I took while he was acting silly with the poster. Priceless memories.

My Son

It’s the school break and I hardly have time to sit down. The kids are constantly on the move and keeping me on my feet. Here is a layout done not too long ago. I can’t wait for some quiet time when they go back to school next week and I get to play with my paints again.

Texture added with gesso with a layering of stamped images.

Stay Positive

Sharing a layout I did for RRBF last month. I wanted to give it a monochromatic feel but I didn’t want to just stick to black and grey shades. Instead, I decided to add one more color to the mix – blue, mixing shades of blue  with just a dash of black and white. The colors complement one and other and everything matched easily.

Here are some closeups of the layout:

 photo Positive4_SB_4Aug14_zpsbdcdae66.jpg

I did add a few gold sequins into the mix just for some shine and you can never get enough of the shiny stuff.

Stay positive and enjoy the day.
