Fun with The Mailbox Muse and new products!

Hi and Happy Friday!

This month the Altered Pages Design Team is creating projects using stamps from all of the amazing Malibox Muse Kits from over the years.  This should be a lot of fun seeing what everyone comes up theme, no prompts, just beautiful deeply etched red rubber stamps as our Muse!

For my project I am using the Alphapalooza stamp.  I am also using a new product at Altered Pages,  the Gelatos Metalic Lux set.  There are a number of new Gelato sets to choose from.  They all look amazing and they come with so many goodies.  The set that I chose has metallic Gelatos, Texture Lux in four colors, stencils, metallic printed paper (I am using one here), canvas paper, cork paper, palette paper, palette knife - I mean you get the idea.  It even includes an idea guide with step by step instructions for some techniques.  

Now, for the details. Here is the beginning of what will be a filled to the brim board book.  I will continue adding to this and you will see more later in the month.

Here is a little idea of all that comes in the Gelatos Lux kit that I am working with.  I will be using the designer printed board outlined in gold that you can see in the second picture below.  

YES, this all comes in one box from Gelatos!

Getting started using the palette paper and palette knife... 
Adding layers with vintage text, Metallic Gelatos & Texture Lux...
In this picture below I used one of the stencils and palette knife from the kit to make the random circles.
used the copper & gold Texture Lux.  
And here is the finished project after adding
a few trims, stickers, tulle and pearls. 
I am really looking forward to playing with my new Gelatos and more Muse stamps to complete my board book.  I will post the progress later in the month.  Thanks so much for stopping by. Please leave me a comment letting me know you were here. 

Make sure to check back everyday to see what the team comes up with next. 

Have a great day and thanks again for stopping by!
Here is a supply list of items that I used.   


  1. What a terrific use of the products - I didn't know about the metallic Gellatos...I suppose I'm going to have to get those texture tubes, too.

    Nice work!

  2. Great texture and color on this altered tag! Fun project.

  3. This is really pretty, Steph, and I am really amazed at all the products you get in that gelato kit. Looks like you are having so much fun and making beautiful art with it.

  4. This is so pretty. Wonderful job.
