Shiny Gnomes--an atc pop-up book.

Yes, I'm a little pop-up crazy lately--but do you blame me?  They're so much fun!  Today I've got an atc sized pop-up book, full up of gnomes, stamped all over with IMAGINE Crafts/Tsukineko Radiant Neon Inks, the words stamped with some rich Memento Luxe, and the whole thing shined up with a good spray of Shimmer Spritz:
2 1/2 by 3 1/2 inches

Hey there, little buddy!
You can find the gnomes at Altered Pages on the Gnomes And Trolls Page (just click the link!).

Those Radiant Neons really pop . . . ;)
It makes me a little banananuts when you can't see the shimmer in the photographs.  So much so, I made you a little video:

(Well, it shows up better if you can make the video bigger . . . but if you make it full screen, it pixillates.  Looks like I'm back to banananuts!!)
THANK you to IMAGINE Crafts/Tsukineko

Don't forget, Altered Pages is having a giveaway this month--to enter, just leave lots of nice comments on any of the June posts.  The more posts you comment on, the better your chances of winning--you can see the details, and the goodies, HERE.

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 …
