Altered Shadow Box and Easel Card


Hi and TGIF everyone! I have a few Stampers Dream projects I wanted to share with you today.

First up is this altered Maya Road ATC Shadow box. I decided to do something different -- notice how this is "not" using Graphic 45 papers?! LOL! You all know I love to alter boxes using G45... BUT, this time, I decided to create something for my 2 eldest sons who play soccer. I wanted something I could put up in my office/scraproom and being that my kids LOVE soccer, I thought a soccer theme would be nice. I used the School Spirit collection by Crate Paper... Oh what FUN papers for children! And I really love the vintage-shabbiness of the designs on each page.

Click HERE to watch my video for an up close look at this altered shadow box. I also include an up-close look at the easel card I share below.

Here are links to the Stampers Dreams products I used featured in this Altered Shadow Box.

Ranger Distress Stain - Walnut Stain
May Art Burlap string in Brown (currently sold out)

Next up is this easel card I made with a cute little stamp by Sarah Kay for Stampavie called Juliet in the Field of Nasturtiums. I love Sarah Kay's designs, they are just so adorable and sweet and FUN to color up with Copic markers.

Here are links to the Stampers Dreams products I used featured in this easel card:

Juliet in the Field of Nasturtiums
Bo Bunny Vicki B papers
Regal Crest Alterations die (vines)
Prima Overture Petunia Collection
JustRite Stampers: Be Happy Borders & Centers
Maya Road Small White Roses Organza Ribbon
Ranger Distress Ink - Vintage Photo

Well, hope you enjoyed the projects I had to share with you all today! Be sure to stop by Stampers Dream and check out all the new products Michelle has been putting up on the store --- can you say new Spellbinders and Tim Holtz cling mount stamps & Alterations dies?! Eeeeeeek, I get goosebumps when Michelle adds new Tim Holtz items to her store... like the new Alterations Sewing Room die! If you haven't bought yours yet, run on over and get yours today before they sell out --- this die (like all Tim Holtz dies, in my opinion) is to "die" for!! :-)

Enjoy your day! :-)
