A Queen isn't afraid to Fail

Happy Halloween All!
I hope you have a fun and safe night. I have a royal project for you today that i am using for my Crafting Family project.

I based the card on a sketch from the Sweet Shop Sketches
I made this card with a bow but I didn't like it. I will try and get that picture uploaded so you can compare.

It's totally wicked today

I have an easy peasy card for you today. Sometime you just need to go old school and not use all the fancy scrapbook. Not that I don't love it all but sometimes you just gotta do something different.

Want all the details head over to Getting Cricky to find out what I did.

I am going to enter this into the Paper Playtime Anything Goes Challenge.

Altered Pencil cup for Crafting Family

Hi Everyone!!    Lately I have been on an altered items kick. :) I picked up this silver pencil cup at Goodwill for $.49. I used some Fancy Pancy Designs Paper from the Little Sprouts Collection. I used the front and back of 2 sheets one was Baby's breath and I threw out the other one before I wrote down the name :( Anyway I added some ribbon and that was it. A super cute holder for me to keep stuff in.

I am also entering this into the 3 Girl Jam Challenge Anything goes with Ribbon.
Have a great weekend!

Altered Journal for Crafting Family

Hi Everyone,
I have a simple little altered journal for you today. 

I used the Little Sprout Collection by Fancy Pants Designs. The stripe and pink and blue polka dots are called Pampered. The red swirl and pink and green dots are on the Babysbreath paper. I these all go together pefectly. I used some paper flowers, a brown gel pen, and pink liquid pearls. Then I just got out my ribbon stash.  I used some scraps for matting all my pattern papers.

I based it off of a sketch from Sweet Stop Sketches.

That's my project for the day. Have a great week.

Design Team day at Crafting Family

I made a

Sorry I am little crazy today, just the kinda of week I am having.

If you are anything like me you are always losing stuff. So I created this box for my fridge. I saw the idea on a blog, but of course I can't find it. If I do I will update the post.
I used a drink box from the mix pouches. I hope that makes sense :D

Here is my project.

I used Wishful Thinking by Fancy Pants Designs for all the papers. The red is called Heartfelt and I cut it at 6x10.5 to wrap all the way around the box. I cut the flaps off the box and then used my atg to put the papers on.  The green and and the fancy piece with lines are the WT cards. I just layered them and did some dashing. The pink is liquid pearls and I dotted them around for some dimension. I added some magnets to the back and here it is on my fridge waiting for some stuff to get put in it.
Have a great day!!
