Blue and white tray.

Made this for my sister's birthday. Used a piece of fabric then added a glass overlay so she could use it on her vanity or as a tea tray. Have enough fabric to make a pillow to match it.

Potential card using my background etc.

Do you remember those old plastic curtains - a long time ago stuff. Well I received this piece from an elderly relative destined for the trash. I love the ornate bench. I scanned it in and played with it using Photoshop by adding my background. See my Rustic Pixel Backgrounds blog for the background. Oh what fun with this old stuff!

Gift boxes with acetate window for grad gifts.

  1. Last week I promised to show the picture of the box tops that I decorated to place the grad scrapbooks in. I used Glimmer Mists and a few butterfly etc glimmer screens. On the acetate window I lightly added some alcohol inks then glitter on a glue stamp of the butterfly.
2. On the box above I painted it with watercolors and stamped a few birds etc. The window was stamped and alcohol inks were applied at random. At a later date I will share with you a few other ideas for the windows on these boxes.

Little six by six grad scrapbooks!

  1. This is the cover of Jacinda's book. The heart was cut from acetate with a image from Stampington placed on back.
2. This cover above was done with acrylic gel medium and a stamp. Her favorite flower is the daisy so I tried to stay with that theme for Nikayla's book.

3. Hand stitched around the above page before inserting it. I felt like I was in a coloring book when I did the initial "J" with some H20's. Used sheet music from a early 1900 Etude magazine.
4. & 5. Hand stitched around each oval for grad photo to be inserted.

6. Background stamp with acetate heart and alcohol inks for Letter "J".

7. On the page below I used a coffee filter that I ran through my cuttlebug to make a pocket to add a few loose embellishments.

8. On the final page I added a little mini card with a quote and a personal touch.
Each book was about one inch thick. Made lots of pages to add photos of their Grad and ruled sheets to do journalling on. Next week I will show you the gift boxes I made to put them in! Thanks for reading!
