If the Shoe Fits!

Then it must be SABOR! 

I have to say I am having a great time working with the SABOR Papers this month!   I know if you had the papers on your table you would be too... the vibrant colors of the papers just yell out to me... create, craft, make something!!!  I have been a crafting fiend this month and it is only the 13th!  Hope you are enjoying all the projects from the ALTERED PAGES team!!!

"Mule, a French word, is a style of shoe that is backless and often closed-toed. Mules can be any heel height - from flat to high. The style is predominantly (but not exclusively) worn by women."  ~From Wikepedia

I was looking through a few on my templates and found this "Mule Shoe" that I had downloaded from Stampington in 2009!!!!  When I saw it shouted SABOR!
Sabor scraps
Bazzil-Flower Pink
Tacky Glue
Dew Drops
Glue Stick
Foam Dimensional Adhesives
Black Ink
Alphabet letter stamps
Heart Charm

Enlarge the template to the size you would like the shoe to be, lay on the SABOR SORPRESSA Cardstock and cut out the shoe.  Score on the dotted lines shown on the pattern, this will form the toe of the shoe! 


 SABOR AMOR  Heart Cutout use Tacky Glue  to add a heart charm to the center, then add Dew Drops to the flowers surrounding the hearts, set aside to dry!

On scraps of Sabor paper Black Ink and alphabet letter stamps, stamp "if the shoe fits".
Now you have all your parts, the shoe, heart, flower (folded in half) and sentiment.  Assemble the shoe, cut the word apart and layer on another scrap of Sabor paper, attach with Glue Stick.  Use Tacky Glue to attach the Bazzil-Flower folded in half.  Apply two layers of Foam Dimensional Adhesives to the back of the SABOR AMOR  Heart Cutout  and adhere on top of the flower.

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 …
