Back to School 1911?

Our little gal is ready to learn.   The colors are softly muted and add an extra special antique appearance.  Thanks Debi!

Debi has been Busy

How Sweet is this little girl?     She can be seen in our children's collages (listed under People)   The whimsical butterfly adds a dash of sunshine!

Another beauty from Debi Wind

Debi used a flowery embellishment with a gem center to accent our little angel from collage AP1138 Cherubic Children.   So Pretty and delicate.

Lovely work by Debi Wind

Debi created ATC's using AlteredPages collage images, flowers and lovely decor papers.

Never Forget by Arline "Hat Lady" Pozzo

An important anniversary is coming, not only for Americans but for all people who share a hope that peace will be attained and love will overcome all fears.    Please remember those who were lost and those who carried on.

Non - Sloppy Fabric Painting

If you like to get funky and use fabrics,  here is a fun way to do painted fabric. 






Choose an acrylic paint and add approximately a tablespoon to a plastic zip bag and smoosh it around, you may add a tablespoon of water too.  Then wet a piece of fabric, 1/8 to 1/4 yard - any scrap will do. Canvas, muslin, cheesecloth, cottons all work fine. Place the wet fabric into the bag and shake it around. Remove and see if it's as you like it, if not replace and shake more. (You can also use another bag with a different color too)
When you are satisfied, remove from the bag and lay flat on waxed paper to dry. Now you have a custom piece of fabric to incorporate into your projects, use as a base, cut it up or whatever!

Have fun!

Princess of Everything

Good morning!  Dianne again.  From the moment I saw the Princess of Everything rubberstamp, I knew I had to add her to my stamp collection.  She is perfect as the focal point on this paper mache box.  Possible uses for the Princess of Everything box  would be a centerpiece for a tea party or birthday party.  It would also make a unique gift box for your special princess.  Think of the possibilities...!

Ready to Go



Hats Off To You

Hello!  Dianne here.  I love the color-themed collage sheets from Altered Pages.  For this card I used an image from #1855D - Beauty in Blue.  Don't you just love the big hat?  Along with the computer-generated sentiment "Hats Off To You My Friend", this is the perfect congratulatory card.   A bit of sewing,  paper doily and a sprinkling of glitter add interest.  I also stamped the image using a great script stamp.  This would make a quick and easy card for a deserving friend!

The BOO is upon us!

Not to rush the season, but we know you  need time to prepare.   Our Boo & Skull Ready to Go package is the BEST.   This package contains so many items for your scary projects.  Tulle, rubber stamp, papers, collages and a secret treat too!
