Altered Fancy Pants Journal

I was super productive when I went to the Ain't She Crafty Retreat in May.  This is another project that I completed.  Today I am sharing this project not only with my readers but also the readers at 3 Girl JAM. I altered a Fancy Pant Journal.  The papers are from Teresa Collins He Said She Said.
I used 3 Girl JAM Crinkle Ribon in Coral Crush.  I did the hand pleating and used the ribbon maker to tie an multi-layered bow. The khaki colored ribbon is from Maya Road. The center of the bow has a button from We R Memory Keepers and a Tim Holtz Safety Pin.  
I used Technique Tuesday Ali Edwards stamps. 
I love all the details of this project! I hope you like it too!!!

Happy Holidays Card

This week our challenge theme at Pink By Design is Christmas in July. Since today is Wednesday we are focusing on a tip or technique.  Our technique this week is heat embossing.
I embossed the die cut and the sentiment on the card.  I love the look of heat embossing on my projects.  It makes the sentiment really pop.  The powder I chose to use is from American Crafts. I used CTMH Juniper ink to stamp the sentiment first.  I love their powder. The sentiment is from Pink By Design Half Pint. The cut is from Memory Box Dies. You can link up here or on the Pink By Design Blog.

Altered Butterfly Box

Seriously I feel like I can't throw away great packaging lately.  Today I am sharing an altered box with not only my readers but also the readers at She's A Sassy Lady.
This is the before.  It is a wooden box that my Banana Republic Perfume came in.  

It has a magnetic full closure.
Here it is after I adhered Once Upon A Springtime from G45. 
The inside has moss from the floral department and a butterfly.  I am not sure where I place this.  Maybe I will give it to someone special.  But in the meantime, it is decorating my desk.

Poppy Card

Lately I have been trying to use up scraps through my stash.  As I was working through my floral papers, I found some scraps from IOD. I love the simple elegance of this card. I made this card for this week's challenge at Frosted Designs.  This week the challenge theme is Ribbon, Twine, Washi: Use 2.  
All my cuts are from Memory Box Dies.  I did some light inking with CTMH Dye Cocoa Ink.
The ribbon is tied through one of the Memory Box Dies ribbon slides.  I used 3 Girl Jam Ribbon in Antique White. I then threaded a button with AC Twine and tied a bow. If you want to join in this challenge, please visit Frosted Designs and link your project up!
Have a creative day!
