Shabby Chic Altered Frame

This piece was made for Kathy (heaven) on the CMB. She was in the die-cut swap that I was in, as shown previously, but her partner flaked and she never received her die-cuts from the swap. So me and 2 other members, Gwen and JeanP, decided to fill in as Angels and each make her a project.  I decided to do a die-cut frame (which is one of the things she wanted) from the George and Basic Shapes cartridge and I added a die-cut pocket watch from TH. She also requested Shabby Chic. Hope she enjoys it.

Die-cut swap from Cindy (Caffinee)

These are the die-cuts Cindy sent to me from the swap on the CMB, I asked for Vintage Travel, she made an Eifel Tower tag and triptych, hot air balloon and extras. I love how I can connect the triptych into a triangular display, super neat idea!!

Vintage Hollywood - Triptych

Hi everyone, here is the final piece of the three part die-cut swap I made for Cindy. I decided to make a Vintage Triptych. I used TH cabinet die and the insert, added split rings, modeling paste and various glimmer mists for the background and white flowers.

I had a bunch of grunge board swirls that had silver glitter, so I painted it with the copper metallic paint and added some resin green roses to it. I also added some picture hangers behind it, incase she decides she wants to hang it on the wall.

Vintage Hollywood - Embellishment Wall Hanging

Here is another part of the 3 item swap for Cindy. Again, staying within the browns, blacks and neutral's she wanted, I created this for an embellishment, which was the vanity & seat and put it on a black metal plaque that I had gotten at Michaels for $1. I cut many, many layers and pop dot them for a 3-d effect, added a pic of Marilyn behind some clam shell packaging from a new cricut cartridge, to give the illusion that she is looking into the mirror.

Vintage Hollywood - Tag

Another swap I was in on the CMB, this one had you had to make 3 die cut items, my partner Cindy wanted a tag, embellishment and a triptych. She wanted browns and blacks, pretty much dark and neutral colors. So here is the tag...

Altered Item Swap

Made this candle box for my partner Lori on the CMB swap. I had a nested three box set sitting around for a while, so I decided to use one of them for this swap. She wanted something nautical, but it did not have to be the typical, blue, white and red.

Return Double Swap for an Altered Project and Domino Book given to Me

I joined this double swap on the CMB, one was an altered item and the other was an altered domino book.  The domino book I made is on a previous post. I want to thank both of my partners on the swap, Lori (Kazalah) for the altered canvas and Sandy (Crafty San San) for the domino book, you did wonderful job. I have yet to complete Lori's altered item, which will be complete in the next couple of days.
