Altered Fun and a Tutorial!

As usual I was thinking ahead...some birthdays coming up for my fantastic nieces. I try to make something homemade for them each year. So here we go...

I did a little tutorial using Sakura Crystal Lacquer and  Terri Sprouls Mixer's. I altered this pressed paper A that I found at the dollar spot in Target. 

This is for my dear niece Adrienne. Here are a few details...

and a little bit more...

This is a super cute and really easy embellishment to make. Use an empty bottle cap. 

By mixing both the 3D Crystal Lacquer and Terri Sprouls Mixer you can get a great look.

This is so easy, after mixing them I then used a popsicle stick to spoon the mixture into the bottle cap. I also used a little of the left over mixture to paint on the edges for a little pop!

Now I added my letter A and sprinkled a little glitter and a few micro beads for some added details.

I let it sit over night to harden and it really is a fun and unique embellishment! 

One of my other nieces birthday's is coming up and I made her a embellished tin that I plan on putting a gift card in.

Do yo love that sheen that the Crystal Lacquer adds to the project...and it hold everything.

Those micro beads will not fall off for anything!

I hope this makes you want to dig in and create some fun projects for someone you love!

Want2Scrap had a ton of releases this summer! Lucky us...here are a few of my new favorites! I used a few to create some projects for CHA, there is no better way to share them then to see them being used!

We all know I love my altered containers...this in is right up my alley. This altered container is the perfect way for any teen to store earring, rings, jewelry or even just change.

Check out the Chipboard Angel Wings. I keep finding myself using them. 

The Nestabling Fancy Tags Two in Turquois has always been one of my favorites.

I also made this cute memo pad, this is a fantastic product from Traditions Studios. The Pearl Strips are the perfect accent to this and the new Jewel Fantasies Chipboard is perfect for creating your own flowers.

Last but not least is an altered clipboard.
