Altered Chiboard Frames

Hi everyone... so I have been waiting for like five (5) years for the perfect picture frames to house 2 lovely pictures my hubby and I took on a Cruise in 2006! I told you it was five years ago lol... Anyways so, well i guess I had to make them myself! So i did, using the large chipboard diecuts frames and some embellishments my YT friend "Tere" sent me, Thanks Tere :-)

 For the inner frame I painted it with FolkArt 'Extreme Glitter' Black Acrylic Paint and it's really glittery in person, I love it. The outer frame I cover with DCWV Glitter Stack (are you getting the feeling I love glitters hehe)...

 Here I embellished the top corner with this large sparkly pink double layer butterfly that I had in my stash for a while and I have them in all the colors I could find.

 This is a chipboard heart that I just absolutely love, painted with white paint, distress the edges with TH Spun Sugar distress ink. I glittered the inside center of the heart and decorated the edges with Silver Liquid Pearls love it!

 I painted the flowers some layer pink, some white and added 2 handmade FIMO Clay embellishments layered on top of each other for the flower centers.

At the bottom right corner of both picture frames, I frame off the title of the event with 2 handmade FIMO Clay embellishments flourishes. They are really pretty, I can see myself making a ton of clay embellishments.

 This frame is for my hubby picture.

 Top corner is adorned with handmade FIMO Clay heart embellishment, layered on top of large key and heart diecuts.

 I love this TH Bird and Cage, I painted it white and distress the edges and also added Silver Liquid Pearls.

These are the frames with our pictures in them.

 Thanks everyone for looking and please leave a comment, I would love to hear what you think :-) Until next time... Take care.

Purple B-day Mini Album

Okay, so I am really in a making mini album phase lol... I was asked to make a mini album to give as a gift. The b-day girl just love purple (love it also) so this was easy and fun to do and she is like super girly lol. Hope you enjoy...

 The cover is made from chipboard which i cut out, also the Top Note design flap that the beautiful dressform is on. I used the flap as the closure of this mini.
 Here are the beautiful pages of this mini...
Slider card, so much fun :-)

As always I hoped you enjoyed the pics and please leave feedback if you will... Thanks for looking :-)

First Mini Album

Hi everyone, this was my first mini album that I had made a couple months back. I tried to use all the fun techniques and interactive pages that I had learned from the wonderful ladies on YT. I was sooo inspired by my YT friend Kelly who made a black and white mini but of course I had to change it to my love for Butterflies lol... So I hope you enjoy pics.

 Here is the cover, I used K&Co Black and Ivory Designer paper throughout this album.
 This is the binding of the album, I used canvas and painted it black then I used a beautiful black & gold lace to cover it. I also added a beautiful Butterfly charm :-)
 Here are some pages of the album...

I hope you enjoyed my first mini album and appreciate feedback if you will... Thanks so much for looking.
