|Altered Cigar Box|
I am not sure what I am going to put into this box, but I just love the way it came out.
I used Tim Holtz's legs and knob to make it practical and pretty. The sunflowers are a nice splash of color.
|This is one of my favorite pages from Graphic 45.|
I love the top of the box with the little girl in a garden. I added some prima flowers and a little key and bow.
|The back of the box|
I might add a pocket or two to the inside of the box and maybe a few more embellishments, but for now I am happy with what I've done so far.
I plan on buying another box 'cause they are only three dollars. These would make a great for someone who collects things.
I have been working on making birthday cards to have them ahead of time cause July and August are busy months in my family for birthdays.
I use Pinterest alot for inspiration and design ideas. The two birthday cards I made came from my boards on Pinterest. Here are the links to the cards that I used .Pinterest Card The second card is at this link: Second Card
I loved using the new stamp I got on ebay called "Just Believe" from Stampin Up. It's a great stamp set. I've seen many cards using this set. I cased this card with just a few changes. I used a different color of green and I didn't use pearls on my flowers. I love the embossing folder 'cause it works well here.
The second card was fun to make, too. I made a few changes to this card, too. I distressed the background paper and used my scissors to make it look very worn
and vintage looking. The stamp was from the same Stampin Up set "Just Believe". The sentiments on both cards was from Stampin Up's "Well Scripted" set.

I used pearls on the ribbon that I added. I wanted a little more color for this card. I used my punch to make the flower and added a pearl in the middle.
When the weather was a little cooler we went to Gurnet which is the road to Harpswell at Cooks Corner. My sister and her husband found this great little place called Gurnet Trading Co. It has really good seafood. It also will cook lobsters for you. It was a really quaint place.

I also plan on finishing my Disney mini album. If the hot weather holds on, I will get alot of projects done.
Next time I will have pics from our trip to Brimfield, Mass. Great place for antiques and collectibles.
