Vintage Chic Altered Cigar Box

Hey hey hey!! So OBVIOUSLY one of my most favoritest (its a word just roll with it) things to alter is a cigar box!! Here is a few pics of one of my most recent altered box. The box is from Hobby Lobby! Check it out! 

I combined some layers of fabric lace and gorjus Pink Paislee and Prima Papers. 

I seriously have a deep affection for velvet trim at the moment! 

I distressed the box by painting it black and then a creme vanilla - then I stripped the creme paint to reveal the black underneath. Hope you enjoyed the pics! Thanks for stopping by yall!!

Perpetual Card Calendar--Part 2

SO are you ready for the second half of the Perpetual Calendar!!! Here goes hope you likey! Lets jump back in with July!

 Here I used a Cameo image from one of  Jenni Bowlin's collection. The huge doily in the back ground you guessed it a Papertrey ink die! The Black Flower pearl trim is from Karlas001's etsy and then I rounded it all off with some Maya Road kraft tickets. 

I adore that sewing machine journaling card I snagged from the OA ephemera pack, In the background you'll see a Melissa Frances Top Note Die Cut, the vellum envie is cut from a Papertry ink die. The trim and mulberry flower is from Karlas001. My fav twine is Papertrey ink and then a Tim Holtz number plaque! 

Love the keyhole trim and the flat back black trim is from Karlas001, the flower is from Michaels I couldn't tell ya who makes it! The doily is just a cup cake doily from Michaels as well. 

Dressform Kaiser Kraft- def hoard valt worthy! The today tab is from the new Teresa Collins stamp set. The bow and pearl charm is Bluemoon's Madame Daphine and of course the lovely trim is Karlas001!

Cut that little heart with a sizzix die. Loving the ephemera piece from Pink Paislee's Vintage Vogue line. There is that Papertry Ink Twine again I REALLY cannot get enough! Topping it off with a Tim Holtz button!

Check out the Burlap Trim and mulberry flower NOt to mention the tiny clothes pin from Karlas001's etsy, the tag and flower is made by yours truly! In the background there is a 7 gypsies tag!
Thank you guys so much for dropping by now that you've gotten an eye full GO MAKE SOMETHING!!! Heart yall!

Perpetual Card Calendar

I happen to adore anything dealing with calendars or notebooks journals ..any type of thing I can make or alter that is USEABLE! My recent creation is just that... Useable. It is a Perpetual Card Calendar. I adore this idea because of course this is a place I can store cards for upcoming birthdays! I used a 7 Gypsies Card Catalogue and the My Minds Eye Follow Your Heart, Be Amazing and Be Happy Collections by Rhonna Farrer. (She has a beautiful Mind, wouldn't you agree?). This collection was so perfect for layering yumminess on top of each other..You will also get your eyeful of Karlas001 yumminess throughout the project!  Check out the first half! 

The 7 gypsies tray is the perfect size for stand cards and super long so you can really store some heavily embellished cards! PERFECT! 

The doily die cuts are from PaperTreyInk, Stamps are from the My Minds Eye Be Amazing Collection, Heart Pearl Drop Trim you guessed it it is from Karlas001

Button Card and Yellow Ticket is from the October Afternoon FarmHouse Ephemera Pack, The Bling Trim is Rinas Baaaling from Karlas001

Mucho layers of lace I love my lace girls! The bottom layer is a natural Burlap Trim from Karlas001!


A few ephemera pieces from the Pink Paislee Butterfly Garden Collection, & Gypsies Tag, Doily is a MFT Doily Die cut, Black Crochet Lace is from Karlas001

This is one of my Fav dividers, the key os of course from Tin Holtz, Another one of those MFT Doilies, the Keyhole trim and Juliann's Shabby Chic Porcelain Flower you can find at Karlas001
The banner you see in the corner was easy peasy thanks to the chipboard accessory pack from the MME Flow Your Heart Be Happy Collection, Theres that Rina Baling again, And yes the Keyhole Trim from Karlas001 as well, the Button Card is from the October Afternoon Farmhouse Ephemera Pack!

As you can tell I didn't hold back on the good stuff!!!
