Prima's Divine Shabby Chic "Altered Frame"!

Happy weekend everyone!

For today's post I'm posting a altered wood frame that Micheal's carries for just $1! Not bad huh?!! So of course I had to grab a few to play with yet this was the first one I've ever done!

This is Wild Orchid Crafts DT monthly challenge for the month of March! Our theme to go with was to use pastel colors and make whatever we wanted!! Being that CHA shared some new releases from so many of my favs is Prima! One of their new releases is from Jodie Lee called "Divine"! So I just got my paper pad and it had all the pastels I could ever need! So I altered my frame with this collection and added several WOC items and it was a perfect match!! yay!! :)

Here is what I created!
(Remember that direct product links will be listed at the very end of this post! Let me know if you have any questions! :) 

I decided to add some small hanging rings to add some ribbon for hanging...
So, it will hang from this seam binding!
 I think I got all the pastels I could! right? lol

Please stay tuned for April's project challenge as I will be challenging you to join in, there will be something you could win if you participate! 
The video will be up soon!!..and of course I'll share it here 
and on my FB page!

Simple Sweetheart Tags!!

Hello again!! :)

Today's post is a simple project. For February, Wild Orchid Crafts DT challenge was to make anything with a "Love" theme using any of the new items they have! Yes, it's March...but I had this project done about a week ago, I'm not 100% mobile presently but I'm trying. So this is finally being posted today! :)

These tags I cut out using a Tim Holtz die of his tag and using no designer paper and non traditional Valentine's Day colors....I decided to play with some fabric and dollar stamps, then embellish with a few of the new items from Wild Orchid Crafts! As always, a product list is below so you can get to it easier if you wanted! Hope you like this quick and easy can use it all year long for sure!!

 My video intro of the tags:


Hope this is a project you like and would try to make some for those quickie gifts or to just say "Hello, I Love ya"!!
