Shabby Hearts

Hello everyone!

I am sharing with you all today my shabby hearts another DT Project for Craftsupplies1! :) I love how these turned out....even though it felt like I didn't know what I was!

Here is a picture of them hanging together....I used some fabric that I have had in my stash forever and cut some hearts out and sewed and stuffed them. I used some Craftsupplies1 goodies such as the laces and trims, appliques, flowers, charms, and bead caps. I made them to kinda tear down from one another and I think it turned out cute!

Here is a picture of them separated....I also used some tickets from Tim Holtz and made them into little tags with fabric sewed behind them. 

Here is the first one on the top...I used them same fabric on the front and back and here you can see the trim and lace that I used and also a flower applique and stickpin I made using the flower bead caps from Craftsupplies1.

Here is the purple one I made it is the second one down...not the greatest pic but I was trying to take it while it was hanging...I used a doily on this one and stuck it behind the wood word LOVE, and there is also a ribbon and porcelain rose and some organza and pearl trim from Craftsupplies1 as well.

Here is the third one I made and it's the bottom heart of the hanging. There is a charm, lace that isn't pictured very well here, and also a flower applique and a paper flower from Craftsupplies1.

And here is the last one that I made it kinda hangs to the left and bottom of the top heart. I did all the flowers in a different color scheme. So obviously this one is a light peach, I also added a little bit of brown to it with some flowers and the tag. The flowers and trims you see are from Craftsupplies1. The wood words and shapes are from fav! 

As always here are the links to the stores and there is also a BOGO sale on the Parchment Paper Flowers still going on:

There is also a GDT position coming open...check out my video below for more info:

Here you will find all the details on the shabby hearts!!

Shabby Altered Mason Jars

Hello everyone!!

I am so excited to share with you my altered mason jars. I absolutely love how shabby they turned out!! They are a design team project for Craftsupplies1 so I used a ton of goodies from Julie's store. 

Here is a picture with both of the mason jars together...

So shabby cute!!  

Let me start with this one...I first started with some white spray paint then I used some of my acrylic paint in white and parchment and mixed them together with some sand to give them some texture. Then I took my Spun Sugar distress paint and lightly when over it to give it a pink hue...then I took a sanding pad and distressed it in how it turned out :) I also wrapped this one in some wide lace from Craftsupplies1 and then with a Recollections trim.

Here is the front with the flower cluster...I toke a square of muslin and added cheese cloth and a doily from Craftsupplies1 and glued it down then added my frame and alphas and tiny wood clock from Prima. I then added all the flowers you see from Craftsupplies1. The top of the jar is wrapped in more muslin and jute twine. Then on the very top I added a handmade flower using lace and trims from Craftsupplies1 as well. (Pictured Below)

Here is the other one.....

I did all the same things as I did on the first one....I wrapped in the wide lace but this time I also used Jute twine. 

Here is the picture of the front on this one....I used a square of Muslin again and cheesecloth and a doily. Then I used another one of my resin frames from the Martha Stewart mold and some alphas I have had forever. This flower cluster I also included a handmade flower I got from one of my friends Becky Long. It's pretty much the same idea as the first one. 

And here is the picture of the top of the jar with my handmade flower. I love how these turned out!!

Craftsupplies1 is also having a BOGO sale on Parchment Paper flowers. When you buy one you get one free Julie automatically includes it in your coupon code needed.

Here is my altered paintbrush featuring the Domestic Goddess papers by 7 Dots Studio. I am calling it "Bold and Beautiful". I did an image transfer with the paper on the handle of the brush...I think it turned out pretty cool!! I also have a start to finish video on this brush over on my YouTube channel:

Last but not least......hehe!

Here is a little box that I also made using the same paper line. I am calling it "Always Creative" I really like this one and how it turned out!!

Hello everyone!!

I just wanted to share with you today the prizes that I made for the Craftsupplies1 YouTube Hop!

You would be entered to win each DT members prize and also there are two Grand Prizes of $40 to Craftsupplies1!!!

Ok so here is what I made to give away....

Aren't they just beautiful!! I altered a frame, balsa box, and made a card.  I used a lot of Craftsupplies1 goodies, laces and trims, flowers, doilies, and acrylic sprays.

Here is the frame by is a Micheals Dollar Frame and I used Prima Lyric on it with some Guava and Gold Gelatos and also some gesso on the paper. I also ran the paper that is around the boarder  of the frame through my embosser which gave it a really cool texture! I also handmade the big flower and sprayed it with my Lindy's. The bow is made out of lace from Craftsupplies1 :)

Here is the altered balsa box I made. I made it into a camera by following a tutorial by Scrapinology on YouTube. They are a lot of fun to make. You can alter them into any style you like and this one I went with Shabby Chic to match my frame. 

And here is my card...using the same paper I altered an envelope that comes with the corrugated cards from Michael's. Again, I used Craftsupplies1 goodies, and decorated the outside of the envelope. I toke a piece of paper from the paper line that look like a frame and stamped Thank You on it and also added a tab from my Tim Holtz die, Tags and Tabs. 

Craftsupplies1 is also having a 25% off everything sale right now while the hop is going on and will end Aug 10th....
