More projects pictures for you all!!!!!

I just completed this Mini for a swap on 2peas. I altered 4 open ended policy envelopes so it would be able to hold more tags and journaling spots.  I also used a standard open ended envelope as a template to make one of the pages out of a flocked transparence or acetate sheet. The line I used for this album was Fancy Pants, It's the little things! Hope you all like it!!!

A Tag/Sign for Anna!

A friend from Twopeas in a Bucket sent me a huge RAK, and inside was this wood mounted stamp of the lady in the tag. So I made this as a part of my way of saying thank you. 

Again I used aluminum foil backed with chipboard and colored it with a deep red alcohol ink. Then I added layers of different colors of Glimmer Glam from Tattered Angels! After that was dried I used Staz On ink to stamp french text on to the aluminum foil. I stamped the image of the lady on to a piece of cardstock and backed it with chipboard, distressed it, raised it up on some pop dots and adhered it to the bigger tag. Added pearl trim, Prima Flowers, lace and a stamped distressed quote from Tim Holtz Stamps. Suspended the tag on chain, added some charms, and walla this is what I got!!!

Hope all of you have been enjoying all that you see on here. If anyone ever has any question on how I did something, please leave me a message and I'll do my best to answer it. Everyone have a Happy and safe Memorial Day Weekend. Please remember all the Sailor, Soldier, Devil Dogs, and Airmen who have paid the ultimate price in keeping our country free!

I know some people have tried to leave a comment, and have not been able to! I've been working out the bugs and think that I have it fixed now!

On another note, for the Graphic 45 paper pad. I am going to do the Oz collection (12x12), so if we reach 200 before the line is released I'll wait until I have it. That's good news for you guys, it just gives me more time to shop, hehehee!!!! I'll buy this ASAP so I won't hold up the give away! If we haven't reached 200 by the time "Oz" been released then we'll just keep going until we reach our goal!!!

Here is another project I did using aluminum and acrylic paint. Everything on this sign I made from aluminum foil with the exception of the chain, jump rings, brads, and the charm hanging from the bottom. The heart hanging from the bottom I made with Fimo clay, old watch parts, and wing charms purchased from Etsy!

More Stuff!

I've been MIA trying to get these swaps done!!! Above is a mini album I made for a swap on 2peas in a Bucket. I took 5 open ended policy envelopes and altered them to create more pockets to hold more tags, photos, and journaling! One of the envelopes I made from an acetate transparency sheet. The line of paper I used was Basic Gray's Sweet Thread's! I had some fabric leftover from a quilt I made that fit this line perfectly, so I used that to cover the front and back album covers!

Another Tag!

Another tag made from Reynolds Heavy Duty Aluminum foil! In stead of coloring the metal with alcohol ink this time I used acrylic paint, ink pads, and Modge Podge. Living in Italy, I have to order 95% of my craft supplies. My goal here was to use materials that was readily accessible to me without going through the internet.
*Aluminum foil - bought at the grocery store
*Flower - shirt bought at the local thrift store
*Birds - punched from book pages bought at the local thrift store,
*Two cream flowers, laces, brown pearls flower center - bought at the Italian Market
*Paper clip, acrylic paint, cardstock leaves and ticket - bought from the Navy Exchange!
*Die, ticket punch, bird & leaves punch, embossing folder, ink pads and word stamps - provided by friend, Leah (Stamping Up Demonstrator).

I'm thinking that my Christmas Tree this year will be covered in Vintage Christmas themed tags!!!!
