Hugs and Kisses for all TIME.

Design Team Project for Discount Paper Crafts!

Yes, indeed! You guessed it by the title! It's another Clock!!! I can't help it! Clocks are a weakness! They tell the tale of every minute of life that we are blessed with and it's a favorite subject that I love to craft about!  This particular project was created for a wonderful, sweet friend of mine, Miranda! Her YT name: MsLiberty25.  When I saw this picture of her and her boyfriend, I knew that it had to have a sweet, grungy, shabbychic masterpiece created around it!  And I think that all the yummy products from Discount Paper Crafts helped me to achieve what I was creating for! I love to add an "x,o" somewhere on each of my projects, and as you will notice, the clock IS the "x,o"! I purchased the wooden "x" from a craft store and the "o" is actually a candle holder that I purchased from a local store. I nailed the 2 pieces together and so became the foundation for this clock. I added a TON of texture using The Prima Distress tool, Prima and The Crafter's Workshops Stencils, a script stamp by BoBunny and acrylic paint mixed with sand to shabby everything up! You can also visit my YT channel for exact details of this creation by clicking on my YT button at the right on my sidebar. Look for the video with the exact same title as this blog entry! While you are there, you are certainly welcome to watch any of my other videos...go ahead...I think you'll like them! Enough rambling... Here's the pics, followed by the links to all the products I used from Cathie's store.  If you want to bypass the individual links and go straight for the homepage of the store, just click on the Discount Paper Crafts store link at the sidebar on the right!

"Forever Imagine" shabby heart hanging and a card...DT project for ThePiecebyPiece

This particular project coordinates with my last post ("Adore" mini album). They are meant to sit side by side. I've decorated this cute Crochet heart (that I picked up at an antique mall) into a shabby chic masterpiece that hangs from a stand. The stand was meant to hold 8x8 scrapbook pages that could flip up to display each page as a home decor piece. The stand was originally a bronze metal, and I used paint mixed with sand to shabby/texture it up a bit. I think this piece is really sweet! I've added lots of yummy laces and trims from ThePiecebyPiece. Also added in some awesome acrylic flower sprays, acrylic candy gem sprays, a little bit of the beautiful Prima Fairy Rhymes paper collection, some 1/2 back pearls and even some verigated pink wheat sprays...all from ThePiecebyPiece...of course! I even created two pretty little white roses by rolling and gluing a sheer ruffled trim into a flower shape ...again this trim is from Beverly's store. The card I made (decorated with the Prima Divine paper collection) coordinates with the album and this shabby heart hanging  and is displayed with beautiful products from ThePiecebyPiece. Here are some pictures... and the links to direct products I used will be listed underneath the photos!
