So sorry I have neglected all of you -Altered Book/Spell Book

Hello everyone. Time has gotten away from me and I realized I have neglect my lovely blog here. I have been done a bunch of altered projects and thought I would share my altered book that I turned into a spell book for Halloween.


So I took an old book I had and added the sides with some paint. Then I google some spell pages and found this really cool ones and printed them off. I also found some free digital tags and papers that are Halloween in theme and printed those out too. For the finishing touches I add some chipboard, lace and embellishments and tada my spellbook is complete.

I will be adding this to a few challenges.

The library Challenge-Harry Potter
Crafty Calendar Challenge-Halloween

Hello everyone.  It is Liv today and I am sharing my final DT layout I created using the Echo Park Neverland Collection Kit.  Isn't this kit just the cutest.  This collection is just what you need for those Disney enthusiasts out there. 

I found some old photos from our Disney trips and decided to put it into a layout.  I combined the Chipboard Phrases pieces from the Neverland Layout collection  and some of the Decorative Brads as well.  

I created my own layered embellishments using the Ephemera Lost in Neverland Frames and Tags  from the pack. 





Hope you all enjoyed this layout. Be sure to check out the Fotobella website.   The amazing varerity of collection kids makes scrapbooking and crafting so easy.

Fotobella Design Team Loaded Envelope-Bo Bunny Harmony


Hello everyone. It is Olivia here and today I am sharing my Flatmail bag that I created. All the embellishments that are in this set are made by me using the Gorgeous papers and Ephemera from the Bo Bunny Harmony Collection. In the photos above is the front and back side of the bag.  I used both the stickers and the chipboard pieces in the Want it All Collection.  Both sides of the bags have two pockets so it makes for 4 areas to stash my handmade embellishments in. 




 Since this project is going out to a crafty friend of mine, I decided to include a Memorydex card. Memory-dex card are basically a crafty way of sending an old-fashion rolodex.  One the front side you create a small mini-crafty masterpiece and then on the back has your contact information.  It is a lovely way to create an beautiful contact list for your friends and family.

Fotobella Carta Bella Wall Decor-FotoBella Design Team

Welcome everyone. It is Olivia here and today I want to showcase a home décor item I created by repurposing an sign from the Dollar Tree.  For this project, the base is a chipboard plaque.  I used the Carta Bella Flower Market paper collection and matching embellishment sets for this project.



  I cover the board in strips to replicate a "plank" looked.  I used a corner rounder on the edges.  Next I created two rosettes.  The larger one is 6 inches and the smaller one is 5 inches.  I also added a tag in the background for some more layering on the project. 




 In order to make the 6 inch Rosette I cut two pieces of patterned paper at 12 inches long and 3 inches wide.  I then scored it every 1/2 inch an accordion folded the paper. Then you glue the two half together and you pushed down for your rosette. I used the Carta Bella Flower Market Chipboard and Carta Bella Flower Market Frames and Tags for the Rosette centers for the pieces and through the plague as well.  For the 5 inch size Rosette the paper dimensions are 2.5x12 and followed the steps above. 


I hope you all enjoyed this project and don't be afraid to decorate your home with some of your own wonderful creations.

Decorated Box

Hello everyone.  It is Olivia here and today I am bring you a quick tutorial on how to create some items with Rice Paper. Fotobella offers some gorgeous selections from Stamperia and I am featuring three different projects that contain Rice Paper.  The first is a decorated box, then a tag and finally a card.

I bought a box from the craft store and but a layer of gesso on the top. Then I used Prima Mica Powders , Green, Sunny Yellow and Summer Sky.  I then spritzed it with water and let it dry.

I then added a thin layer of modpodge and added the Rice Paper, called Wonderland Fantasy Decoration.  One of the many thing I loved about this sheet was that it had multiple images on the rice paper.  I used the stencil with some Bo Bunny Glitter Paste to add some texture.  The final touch was the metal butterfly and dragonfly that I used purple wax on it to change the color.
