New Projects

Hi everyone! Here are a few projects I have worked on the past week. I was busy planning my hubby's 40th surprise birthday that I didn't get much creating in. But I was putting together a package for Lily ("Lejack97" on YouTube) and I thought I'd make her something handmade... I ended up making her 2 handmade goodies. :-)

The first is this dress form. Bona had given me a stack of these gorgeous dressform die-cuts and I haven't had a chance to create anything with them yet, so I thought I'd make a little name plate for Lily using the dress form. First I painted the chipboard diecut with gesso, then painted it with my Espresso daubber by Ranger. I then rubbed Antique Gold Rub n' Buff to create a distressed, vintage look. The skirt is cut out using Graphic 45's Domestic Goddess paper. I sprayed it with Moon shadow Mist by Lindy Stamp Gang, heat set and adhered it to the chipboard. The Cameo and decorative base are from Canterbury Lane on Etsy. The flowers by iamroses.com (of course!) LOL!




I made this Greeting Farm meets Graphic 45 hanger with inspiration from the one I had made a video on a few months ago. I love Graphic 45 and The Greeting Farm Creepy Crew stamps are so wicked cool, I can't get enough of them! LOL!




Lastly, this is a Vintage Card I made for Susan, my "4000 YouTube Subscriber" giveaway winner. I again used the Graphic 45 Domestic Goddess paper collection, lots of Lindy Stamp Gang starburst stains, iamroses.com flowers, aluminum flowers form Canterbury Lane and Prima lace.



Thanks for stopping by everyone. Enjoy the rest of your week! :-)
