Altered Frame

Hellooooo everyone Heather here with a project to share. So I had this little ugly plastic frame sitting around in a junk drawer since I was in middle school (hoarder much?) and the other day I was going through stuff, came across the frame and thought "yanno...I bet I could make this pretty and have it out instead of hiding away in a drawer."

I covered some grungeboard I had in my stash with foil & embossed it. Some free hand and some with my sizzix. Then I decorated with inks, glimmer mists, stickles, cheesecloth, flowers, & a feather. Here's some close ups:

The glimmer mists, stickles, and flowers I used are all from the Your Memories Here store.
Thanks for looking!
Peace & love.

You are so Precious

Hey everyone it's Heather here with another page I made using some gorgeous Prima products I got in my Prima grab bag. I LOVE those things. It's always a surprise to see what you get, and never a disappointment.

My dog Bentley does this adorable thing where he lays on his back and holds his chewie bones in his paws like an otter. Here's a couple close ups:

Thanks for looking! I hope everyone has a great week!
Peace & love.

Wall Hanging

Hey everyone, I'm here with something a little different to share this week. I got my prima grab bag in the mail a couple days ago and was VERY excited. One of the things I got was a prima "build a book" front & back cover. I wasn't really in the mood to start a mini album so I decided to use one of the covers to make a wall hanging instead.

Since I didn't want anyone to be able to see the wall through the red cover I started by covering the back using a piece of prima cardstock. I made sure to put my adhesive where it would be covered by the photo later. I cut around the edges with my craft knife.

The next step was to tie some ribbon on so it had something to hang on & cover up the 'extra' holes. I did so by glimmer misting a doily to match my piece and trimming off the extra.

After that I could decorate & embellish like usual, here's a few close ups:

The red backing, red flower, red crystals, and cream colored ribbon are all Prima.
Thanks for looking!
Peace & love.

Ready for a Night on the Town

Hey everyone,

It's monday which means it's time to share my 'Your Memories Her'e DT project. Lots of ink and stickles on this one you guys :)

Those are pictures of my grandparents from a few years back when they were all fixed up for a class reunion. Aren't they cute? ;)
For this part of the page I put down some texture paste and after it dried went back over it with some Stickles and Ranger distress ink.

Close up of the Prima vine I used.

This was actually just a piece of scrap paper I put under a dressform embellishment (for another project) I was prepping for paint. I thought it looked too pretty to throw away so I distressed the edges, added Stickles and Glimmer Mist and made something beautiful out of something that might have just been thrown away.

Thanks for looking! I hope everyone has an amazing week.
Peace & love.

Berry 71 Bleu

I'm playing along at Berry 71 Bleu ( this month!!

Part of the challenge was that the project had to be about youself, so I made a list of words that came to mind when I think about describing myself:
Most of the time I spent working on this page was spent on the silver frame. I punched it out of white cardstock, painted it with silver crackle paint, and went around the edges & cut outs with pink & silver stickles. And yes my hand/ wrist was sore the next day ;)
Thanks for looking!
Peace& love.

Challenge Me Happy #37

Hey guys & happy new year! I've decided to play along with the "Challenge me Happy" challenge this month. The rule was your page has to have the following things: stamping, a quote, birds, arrows, and brads.

Here's what I came up with:

(and please excuse my crooked and weird angled view....I had to take these pics inside and if I didn't have it at an angle the glare was too great)

And a few close ups:
Thanks for looking! Peace & love. xoxxo
