Time For CreativiTEA

Happy Saturday Everyone and Welcome!!  This month AP is  teaming up with Leaky Shed Studio's  makers of some really awesome chipboard products!! Our theme is Tea cups and Tiara's. So, in keeping with this months cross promotion I decided to alter one of their sweet little chipboard  tea cup and saucer pieces and incorporate it into my handmade Tea Bag gift Book .



 
 
 
Love this chipboard piece. I took bits and pieces of  Graphic 45's Secret Garden paper and collaged the tea cup and saucer. I then used some gold embossing powder and embossed the edges to give the tea cup that sweet rich vintage teacup look. Once completed I then adhered it to the cover of my handmade teabag book.
 
 
 
 
 
 
This little 5x7 book makes such a great gift for that special someone who loves tea!! I created it using the Secret garden paper and some purple cardstock. I then created little tags using a tea cup image from AP's collage sheet  "Tea Party Flowers" and adding a sweet quote about tea.
 
 
 
 
 
 
This little book has 6 little pockets just right for will holding 6 single serving tea bags or  whatever you would want to place in them.
 
 
 
 
 
I had such a wonderful time creating this and can't wait to send it to a special person!!. I think she is just going to love it!!
 
 
 
 
 
Well that's it for today. I hope you will join us daily as our amazing design team brings you more sweet art using Leaky Shed products and amazing products from AlteredPages.com!!
 
Happy Spring everyone!!
 
Oh,  HAPPY  15th BIRTHDAY ASPEN SKY ISAACS!!! Nana loves you!!

  4. This is just delightful! Whoever receives it is going to be so happy! One of our favourite tea shops is called 'Miss Mollett's High Class Tea Room' and it's in a tiny village in Kent in the UK called Appledore. They have an amazing array of vintage tea cups etc, embroidered cloths and the biggest meringues I have ever seen! Your beautiful and elegant project really evoked happy memories of that lovely haven for me. I'm so glad to have discovered your blog thanks to UPA! Julie Ann xxx

The Gift Card Card

Robin here and today I have a project for you that is a fun way to give gift cards or cash.  

You will need two envelopes for this project.  One is what the post office calls the 6 1/4 Commercial envelope.  When I was growing up we just called it a letter envelope.  It's a smaller rectangle than the #10, being just 3 5/8" x 6 1/4".  The other is a standard A6.  I chose the A6 because it fits inside the letter envelope when it's folded in half and it's also large enough to hold a check or cash, as well as a gift card.



With the flap against the body of the envelope, fold it in half from side to side.  Cut the flap in half and trim the inside cuts at an angle so that they don't interfere with the fold or get bunched up. 



Decorate the flap side of your envelope.  This will be the inside of your card.  Fold the envelope again and decorate the side that will be the front of your card.





Cut a panel of card stock to fit inside the 6 1/4 Commercial (letter) envelope.  Att…

Pretty Little Trees of all colors

Make adorable ornaments or decor items.


YOU can make the most colorful trees to fit your style and home.  Surprise someone with a color coordinated gift too!
I did different techniques for dyeing the sisal trees from AlteredPages.  We have 3 inch and 4 inch sizes in natural cream color available.


# 1 Technique used simple food coloring.  Yep, just like dyeing Easter Eggs!

I used an empty glass jar filled with water and dropped about 4 to 5 of green food coloring in and stirred it well.   I then placed a tree in the water.  The sisal is just like jute, so it absorbs the color easily.   I allowed it to be submerged for a minute and took it out.  The first dipping was paler than I wanted, so back into the water!

I did the same with red food coloring and added blue to the green for an aqua, as above.   Depending on how many drops of color you add to the water and how long you leave them submerged will determine the intensity of color.  Pull them out of the water after 30 seconds and check for …
