Star Card

I had a little play time last night so I made this card....finished it up this morning!
I love everything about it....the shape and the simplicity of creating it.
 The paper I used is from an old K & Co. stack...I don't have the name off was one of my first paper stacks that I purchased and I only have a few sheets left.
 The inside had plenty of room for stamping too. 
This card has so many possibilities to can use a plain sheet of paper and add layers using other D.P.

Happy Wednesday♥

PS I forgot to mention that the stamp I used was from Verve Stamps....they are one of the best line of stamps.

Altered Caddy

This is a wood caddy I picked up at a thrift sale last weekend.
It's small enough to sit on my desk without taking up so much room.

 I like the division inside...this way everything isn't falling all over and clumped together.
 The paper I used is from DCWV "The Garden Tea Party" stack....great papers in this group.
I kept the embellishments simple on the larger side so I wouldn't destroy them when I turn it.
 The smaller sides are some what receded so they don't stick out so much. I kept them simple also, I used a piece of Recollections bling in one corner, two brown skeleton leaves behind a satin beaded flower from my wedding veil.
What's old is new again.♥
I then glues flat back pearls all around the edges and the top handle.
One side holds some of my scissors I use often.
The other side holds my tools that I use often too!
It measures 7"x6" and 6" tall.
Not bad for a $1.00!

Swap Mini Album

 Thought I'd share the mini album I received from a swap that I was in on FaceBook.
Sorry for the black dot on the left but I'm still using my pirate!
This camera still takes the best pictures!
 The mini is created using only one sheet of 12x12 double sided paper.
 The way you score, cut and fold is how you make the four pocket mini.
 It's quite simple...but as always it's the embellishing that takes the most time. 
My partner Deb, did a great job on the mini and all the wonderful tags inside.
I'll post pics of the one I made as soon as she receives hers. We mailed them the same day but she hasn't received hers yet. I stuffed the envelope full of goodies so I hope she receives.....probably shouldn't have done that seeing it was going to British Columbia....I just hate to think that someone would take the package but I hear it all the time when I go to the post office of packages being lost for no apparent reason even when there's tracking on it.
