Well I saw a video on youtube, one from Sybil at jandsib80, inviting viewers to enter a giveaway contest celebrating her upcoming birthday. One of the ideas she asked viewers was to make a card, either a birthday or valentine and show it in a video. So I pulled out some pretty papers from Me and My Big Ideas, and got to work... Used my Tim Holtz Sewing room die for the dressform and spool and then had fun just layering on flowers, leaves and bling. But, I had paper left over...hmmmm
SoI made a 12" by 12" layout. I had just made a flower with some old ribbon to experiment with a new technique ( prior post)...didn't think I would use it...but it might just match this paper... plus I had just a little bitty piece of the ribbon left so I made 3 little rosebuds and added a Prima crepe paper flower and things started to click. I dug through my old metal pieces, found one from Making Memories that said "always live in vivid color" and this was really starting to come together. I broke a beautiful piece of filigree from FabScraps into four littler pieces and put small green rhinestones on them and just love it! But I still had paper left over.
And you and I both know, you cannot waste pretty printed paper, so I looked around and found a very very old clipboard I had stashed and got out the xyron 9" adhesive machine and just layers some of the papers on front and back and really like how it turned out.
With just a little more of the paper, I know, huh?
I altered a wonderful little cigar box and made a sewing box and lastly, I layered some paper on an old tool carousel and turned it into a piece perfectly coordinated for my craft room....which I still have not finished cleaning....teehee
I hope you all are having fun crafting...
Here's the youtube video I did of these projects...hope you enjoy!
