Altered Configuration Book ~~Scraps of Darkness~~

Hi Again Sweet Friends,  Today I'm sharing another DT project using the beautiful January Kit "Style and Sophitication" from Scraps of Darkness.  For this project I used some of the G45 "Couture" papers from the kit.  This is one of Tim Holtz's configuration boxes that's actually a book, so fun!!

I used lots of bling on this but today it's RAINING FINALLY!!!  So the photos don't really do this justice, but it really shines!!  Here's a photo of the cover.

And here's a couple of shots of the inside cover and boxes

Life Is Good ~~Scraps of Darkness~~

Hi Sweet Friends,  Today I'm sharing another project using the beautiful January Kit "Style and Sophistication".  I used the gorgeous Authentique new "Classique" paper line from the kit.  This is my take on this month's sketch by our ever-talented Suepup.  The chipboard is from Imaginarium Designs which I altered by inking them with Prima's Turquious Stone.  After that dried I used Tim Holtz's Stampers Anonymous "Floral Tattoo" in Prima's Farmer's Jeans" blue.  They really turned out nice and matched the papers perfectly!!  Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek, I hope you enjoy!!

Scraps Of Darkness January Kit ~~Style and Sophistication~~

Hi Sweet Friends,  Today I'm revealing my first project using Scraps Of Darkness's January Kit "Style and Sophisticaiton". This kit has G45's "Couture" paperline along with Authentique's "Elegant" paper collection.

 For this project I altered an old cigar box of my husband's that was his Father's..it's so old and fun to alter!!

I used the gorgeous new "Couture" paper collection from Graphic 45 that is included in the kit.  I also used Prima's Ingvild Bolme Chalk Fluid Edgers - "Rusty Bucket" and "Teal Damask".  Along with some beautiful flowers from Prima's "Le Mia", Petaloo's Darjeeling Collection "Wild Blossoms" Paprika, and Kaisercraft's "Paper Blooms" Olive Mini blooms.

And here's the inside, sorry the lighting and shadows are bad this time of year, but the bling really glitters!!

Sweet Country Girl & Sweet Little Hank ~~Imaginarium Designs~~

Good Morning,  Today I have 2 DT projects to share with you for Imaginarium Designs.

For my first project I used the beautiful Thistle Board (IDS004) chipboard from Imaginarium Designs which I altered using some gesso and then painted with some Folk Art White paint.  I then applied a little Tim Holtz Distress Ink (Vintage Photo) to the edges.

I used Recollections "Memories Documented" paperline for this project and made some flowers with Tim Holtz's Rosette Die Cut.

For my second project I used the beautiful "Long Swirly Florish" (IDFL005) and the "Precious Baby Boy"phrase from Imaginarium Designs chipboard.  I used the beautiful Bo Bunny "Pincushion" paper collection.  To alter the chipboard I sprayed them with a combination of Lindy's Stamp Gang mists - Bodacious Blush, Gag Me With A Spoon Grey, and Shabby Turbine Teal that I received for our blog hop.  LOVE these colors!!

Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek, I hope you enjoy!!
