Special Days in May

Happy Sunday to everyone, Jean here to share what Spring and the month of May will bring to us.

May has many events to celebrate, we know you need to get started NOW to create your projects, so let's get going with some inspiration.

We have created new Pocket AlteredPages for some of May's events.

Let's start with Cinco de Mayo and all the colorful ways to share the festivities of May 5th.

Create wonderful pages with a 
South of the Border Flavor

Of course, May is Mother's Day, time to gift that special woman in your Life with a handmade creation they will treasure.  Aunts, Grandma's, friends who have influenced your life in a wonderful way will be so touched by your thoughtfulness.

These Mothers Day Pocket Altered Pages include a magnet, 1 yard of fiber and lots of embellishments. 

Memorial Day can be a remembrance day for some. It's also a day to spend time at a picnic or parade to celebrate our wonderful country and those who have served  and continue to serve.

Pocket Altered Pages are such a great gift for a Veteran.  they will appreciate the time you take to create a lasting memory for them.   Add service photos of important people who have served.  

We have an array of collages dedicated to the Military

 Handy Tip for Artists, Recyclers and Neat Freaks! I have a follow-up to the Citra-Sol method for creating fabulous background pages and collages.   I bought a big bag of navel oranges and realized I had the ingredients to make my own solvent!   Simply take a clean glass jar, peel the rind from the oranges and place all the rind/peels, without the pulp (tangerines, oranges, navels) into the jar.   Pour enough vinegar over the peels to cover them.    Allow the jar to sit for a week or two and VOILA!     You have made your own solvent for literally pennies.    You will notice the liquid getting a bit thicker than the plain vinegar and it does not smell bad!!! I now have a  HUGE jar on the window sill!       Be careful and only use this after testing on a safe spot.
