Simon Says Stamp and Show - Tim Holtz insired

Hi everyone,

Today I'm gonna show a tag I made for the Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge.

I made a tag shape using heavy cardstock. Then I layered a bit of old book paper, which I tore here and there. Then painted it with CH paints. I die cut a bird cage shape and utee-d it 4 times and the cut some bars of it.
I stamped and embossed the bird before I adhered the cage.(I am not totally happy with the result) Decorated with a rose (grunge rose like) and some little prima flowers. Used lots of distress inks and some TH and Prima stamps. Added some text made with DYMO. And that's it. 

Hope you like it, thanks for visiting,

Today is the day when I first will take part in What is On Your Workdesk Wednesday? by Julia at Stamping Ground. Actually I wanted to start this habit a bit earlier, but there was always something else to do (excuses, excuses, excuses....)
Anyway, let's have a look what I have on my workdesk:
(sorry about the pics, I just learned that better to take my photoes in th daylight :S)

Very close look. I know it's too bright, but those little 2x2 pieces are for a canvas I am making at Claudine Hellmuth's class.

Other bit and pieces from Claudine's class. Can you spot the home-made foam stamp a' la Tim Holtz?

This is my whole desk in the corner of my bedroom. On of my dreams to have a whole craft room, where I can craft day and night and don't have to worry about the mess I cause :D:D Anyway, no complaints.

So this is it. I try to visit many of you, please forgive if I can not get to everywhere, cos I'm spedning my weekend in Hungary at one of my nest friend's wedding :D:D

Back again next Wednesday with a some new projects,

Thanks for stopping by

Crafty Alley August Kit projects # 2 - Folded Mini

Hi everyone,

Today's project is a mini-album I made using 3 beautiful sheet from the Crafty Alley August Kit. I saw this idea of mini album in the latest scrapbook magazine.

Here is the front. I kept it very simple. I used the flower and a leaf from the august kit. The label holder is from my stash and coloured it a bit of pink CH paint and then wiped the paint of, so the paint still can be seen here ana there.
I didn't want to junk up the inside, because I wanted it to close neatly. here's a pic when it's open:

I also brushed some light pink paint onto few pages to create some journalling spot.

That's it for today, I hope you liked it, thanks for visiting me.

Crafty Alley August Kit projects # 1 - Altered box for embossing folders

Hi Everyone,

I'm here to show you a box that I altered using paper and other bits and pieces from the Crafty Alley August Kit.
The box is from IKEA and just the perfect size for my embossing folders which were everywhere around in my drawer.

First I covered the whole lot with gesso, then I tore the paper from the kit and glued down with some gel medium. Then I painted some patches of Crackle paint (which was in the kit too). When it was dry used some Claudine Hellmuth paint and exrta time and painted the whole again. Then I stamped some images all around with black stazon.

The little key is from the August Kit and the other TH bit are from earlier Crafty Alley Kits. I have written 'embossing bugs' with my DYMO laber maker.

For the lid: I used the knob which was in the kit (LOVE IT) and made a flower centre of it.
Flower: tranferred the same paper onto sticky back canvas, then die cut the TH flowers and just layered them up. To make the petals curl up I brushed a bit of multi medium over it.

So this is it. I hope you like it, thanks for stopping by,
