Altered CD

My second altered CD! 
These are really fun to do!! 
I added some twine around the edge, also used it for the hanger. 
The stamped sentiment is a Tim Holtz stamp and the Woman is from The Octopode factory! 
 I used a piece of burlap and some lace trim. I added a stick pin, changed the color using alcohol ink. 
I really like how this turned out :)

Lollipop flowers

Here are some orange and brown flowers I made from paper. I believe they are called lollipop flowers. They are just layers of circles that have been inked, sprayed with water and squished up into a ball, then unfolded and shaped. Use a brad or bling for centers.  Easy and fun to make!

Name Plate

I made Lana this name plate for her crafting desk/room using the tutorial from Creations With Christina.  Here is a link to her tutorial. I used the same technique for this as I did with the pin cushion and altered CD, so it all is a matching set. I painted it pink, added crackle, then added MS pearl paint on top. I added some cute lace, flowers, tulle, decorative stick pin, and a white feather with the flower in the bottom corner. You can't really tell in this picture but the butterfly is embossed after being stamped onto pink paper and cut out. I added the pink pearl trim around her name, which are glittery thickers.

Altered CD

This is my very first altered cd. It was made for my swap partner Lana. I have tons of CD's around and finally altered one. Now its becoming one of my favorite things to alter!

 Here is how I made it - I covered it in paper and painted it pink, added crackle, then finished it with Martha Stewart Pearl Paint. The flowers are from a sizzix die. The butterfly was stamped onto pink paper and embossed in white. Added some pink bling, tulle, and a white feather. Also, lace and pearl trim around the stamped quote.

Thanks for stopping by Scrappy Land!

Another Pin Cushion

I love making pin cushions out of these black olive cans! They are so easy and fun to do. This one was made for my swap friend Lana. I painted it pink then added some crackle then used Martha Stewart pearl paint. I love it. I then added some pretty lace and some pink pearl trim around the edge. The butterflies are stamped on pink paper then embossed, so pretty!

The stick pins are made with pretty glass beads and I used the sizzix 3d flower die for the flowers.
