Altered Diary

 
Today I have an altered diary to show you I started off with this very plain and boring black diary which I bought for a £1 and this is what I turned it into.....

 
I made this diary for my DD Shannon who has a thing about all things nerdy and as soon as I saw this glasses paper I knew I wanted to use it for something for her having recently started work she needs a diary to write her shifts down in. I started off with sheet of kraft card which I cover the whole diary with. I then matted the glasses paper which comes from MME Cut Paste Flair pad onto a piece of black card. I have used some Basic Grey Candy Buttons in the corners to add a little bit of interest to them. 


The glasses are from a necklace which I took apart I have used a set of numbers from an old set of Alpha's which I had tucked away. I stuck the glasses down with glossy accents and then filled the lenses with it to give them a more realistic appearance. I added a couple of flat backed gems to the corners for a little bit of sparkle.

I would like to enter my diary into the following challenges:
Crazy For Challenges - Let's Frame It ( Hope the glasses count as a frame)
Crafts 4 Eternity - Anything but a card
4 Crafty Chicks - Anything but a card
Craft My Life - Anything goes but no cards
Creative Creations Challenge - Sparkle & Shine ( gems are sparkly and the glasses are shiny)

Remember


 
This weeks challenge at  Totally Gorjuss is Remember, as soon as I saw this theme it made me think of Poppies with it being November so I set about make a poppy from ribbon, I followed the instructions on here apart from my red ribbon was 40 mm wide and I didn't have any black ribbon wide enough so I place a button inside the black ribbon I had and sewed around it. Other than that I kept the card nice and simple with just a couple of green swirls and an embossed background so the poppy stood out.
 

 
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
Delicious Doodles - Remembrance Sunday/ Thinking of You
Crafting With Dragonflies - Make Your Own Flowers
Stamp & Doodle - Rememberance

Six On The 6th

 Wow can you believe another month has gone past and it's time for S J Crafts series Six on the 6th the idea being that every month you join in and make 6 Christmas cards so that when it's gets to Christmas it's not so much of a rush, having counted my cards the other day I have almost 30 ready which is good for me. This month I decided to stray away from the normal (for me) cards with DP and a coloured stamped image, I have heat embossed a background stamp using Versamark ink and silver sparkle embossing powder and then inked all over it with Festive Berry Distress ink.
 The back ground stamps are both from Visible image, the sparkly silver ribbon is from my local haberdashery shop. In the card above I have tied a double bow and added some tiny jingle bells and a sentiment and the one below I have cut a snowflake with my spellbinders die adding a hero arts red gem to centre.
 
 
 
I would like to enter my cards into the following challenges:
Visible Image - Make It Sparkle
Fab N Funky - Traditional Christmas Colours
Holly Jolly Christmas - Traditional Colours (sort of)

This weeks challenge at Incy Wincy is Ribbon, Twine or Fibres and we are sponsored by Sassy Studio Designs.

I have coloured the image with promarkers adding some diamond stickles to her tail and I have used a gold sakura pen to highlight her hair.

The flowers have been in my stash forever and I used some flat back pearls to decorate them.

My Christmas Notebook


Every year at Christmas time I have a little notebook in which I keep a record of all the presents I have bought so I don't forget anyone or more likely buy another present when I've already got one squirrelled away for them. This year I thought I would make myself a pretty one so I set about altering this notebook.

It was a pretty bog standard spiral bound notebook, which I think it cost less than a £1 when I bought it. I started off by levering the spiral open to remove the covers.


 I used a promarker to do this so I didn't bend the spiral out of shape.
  

I have covered the front and the back with kraft card and then added a panel to the front using papers from Teresa Collins Santa's list pad. I've cut an aperture in the paper and put my image behind the hole. I have used another of the cute penguins from Angels Landing stamps coloured with my promarkers. I have heat embossed the silver on his hat and scarf and given him some stickles snow to stand on. For the finishing touches I  added some red twine and punched snowflakes with red gems to and tied a variety of ribbons to the spiral bound once it was back in place to pretty it up.
  


On the inside of the back cover I have added a pocked cut out of kraft card so that I can add any receipts I wish to keep. I cut the shape out if the top using one of my nesties shapes.
 
I would like to enter my notebook into the following challenges:
Crafty Girls Challenge - Anything Goes
Craft Ribbons - Anything But A Card
Passion For Promarkers - Beginning with P ( Penguin, Patterened Paper)



Cute LOTV Teddy


Another card for an order this time I've used a LOTV topper, Ppaers are from my scraps pile again think they were from an old daisy & dandylion pad. The flower was cut using my Tattered flowers sie and the swirls are Marianne dies.

The woodgrain paper is from another MME pad as are the little fishtail banners using up lots of scraps on this card.

Purple & Black at Incy Wincy



Good morning it's Monday morning not only does that mean it's back to work but it's also time for a new challenge over at Incy Wincy and this week challenge is Black & Purple and we are sponsored by Dilly Beans Stamps. I thought I would go a bit different to what you would expect at this time of year with those colours and choose this cute Christmas penguin image form our sponsor. These were so easy to colour in and really need no embellishment I just added a little stickles to highlight. I have matted and layered purple and black card, embossing the pale purple with a snowflake folder on my cuttlebug.
