Happy Valentines Day

                                        I made these instead of a card ! Large tag on board!
Hope everyone has a wonderful day !! I have been single for over twenty some years so it is not exactly a holiday I go all out on !! I make cards for some close family or friends ! My sister , she made over 40 cards to mail to people that are widowed , alone or have had a tragedy in the past year! I think that is awesome !  Kudos to her  ( she got one of the tags above )
have a great day !!

Journal on the Small Side !!

Playing around with paper again !!! I made a small little journal book , for just putting a few little treasured thoughts in to cherish & save !! I used various papers , stamps and embellishments ! Page two ,
the arrows are grunge board and sprayed with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist in Graphite, the little crown also is Grunge Board, but inked it first and then sprayed with a Glimmer Mist ( gotta have that little bit of sparkle ), and a stamped image that I just taped down with Tim Hiltz tape ( love the stuff )  ! Page three are :
a tag stamped and folded with a Grunge Board Key , paper buttons from card stock that I also stamped. and on the other page I added ever so tiny flowers from sheet music paper with a rhinestone center ! Pages four are:
A journal sticker from my stash ( can not remember from where ) the other page is from Altered Pages , one of my favorite images , Vintage ATC 1, I added some gears from one of my Tim Holtz dies ! Page five is
paper from the Glitz line again that I cut out with a die and added some little stickers ! The next page is another image from the same ATC  sheet with a chair stamp that I cut out !Page six is:
Another die cut from the Glitz paper  with more tiny flowers I cut out ( I used the Cricut for those ), and the last page is another journal sticker , a little "love" banner. The back cover is
another image from the ATC page with a die cut butterfly and Journal sticker !! The book I made from chipboard !!
I have been on a book making trend lately , I also made a journal for my daughter to  write all the cute things kids say , we always think we should write it down , never do and then it is forgotten ! So I of course forgot to take any photos of it so I will leave you a photo of my grand kids , the newest addition , Tovah was born on Jan 24, with big sister Haddie and big brother Zeke  !
Have a fabulous and creative day !!

Tiny Books & Altered Cards

 I have seen a lot of cute little altered books made to be a necklace , loved them & decided to make my own !! I have always thought it would be great to have some special quote or verse in a handy little book ! I used grunge paper for the cover and the inside papers I used images from Altered Pages that look like vintage pages to give an interesting background for your notes & quotes !! On the covers I also used images from Altered Pages and covered them with clear embossing to make the a little more sturdy !

The edges of the book pages and the cover have been distressed to give a more tattered look , so it looks like it's been around for a long time & had lots of love !

I also finished my Altered Bingo Cards for a swap I am doing over at the Yahoo group for Altered Pages , you can click on this link to join in on all the fun !!

Bingo cards were created using  images and papers from Altered Pages , some of the papers are the Glitz papers which I think are fabulous and can be found here
Off to finish working on more projects ! Have a blessed & creative day !
