I started with BAZZILL card stock for the base of this 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 card. The pattered paper is from Lindsay's Stamp Stuff's Vintage Sheet Music FREEBIE! (click the link for a FREE download) I love the way this paper looks old and smudged. Of course, I had to give it some extra smudges with my TH Distress inks...but I digress...What I think is the COOLEST part of this card is the gears! Did you think they were metal? Guess again. They are just plain ol' Staples cream card stock, colored with copper and gold alcohol inks, then sanded and distressed with-you guessed it-more TH Distress inks. These cool gears are also part of a LINDSAY'S STAMP STUFF svg set (STEAMPUNK). I used my cricut and SCAL to cut them out and Helmar Liquid Scrap Dots to adhere them with dimension.
That's it for today. Be sure to stop by Thefrugalcrafter's Weblog for a cool video she made demonstrating different airbrushing techniques and a peek at the rest of her talented design team's projects this week. Thanks for stopping by!

I have been wanting to use this dress form from LINDSAY'S STAMP STUFF on a project and today I figured out what I wanted to do with it. I cut out the pieces using my Cricut and SCAL, but if you don't have a Cricut or SCAL you can use the jpeg printables that are included in these sets. I used Distress Inks on the tag, doily sash, measuring tape and the buttons.
I stamped CREATE in the corner (Invoke), embossed the lower edge with a cuttlebug folder then glued all my pieces down with Helmar Acid Free glue and used Liquid Scrap Dots (for dimension) to adhere the buttons. I wrapped the spool with some embroidery thread and attached it to the tag with various ribbons, threads and yarns.
Here are links to the sets I used:
This project was sew much fun to make! That's all for today. Thanks for stopping by, and until next time, happy creating!

Here are the quick details of this easy to do journal:
First, I printed and colored and image from this digi stamp set from Lindsay's Stamp Stuff . I used my scalloped nesties to die cut the image and the border. I layered the scalloped pieces and patterned paper onto the cover. Next, I added a Prima flower and a couple of leaves along with a piece of printed ribbon. A punched corner for the top and done! As I am sitting here looking at it, I am thinking I could have tied some ribbons to the spiral binding for a little added texture and color. Hmmmm...maybe I will take it back to the craft room and do that...
This was a quick, simple project that would make a cute gift or something nice to keep for yourself and you can buy this or any other stamp set this weekend at Mygrafico for 40% off!
Thanks for stopping by. Have a great weekend Everyone!!!!

I have a fun project to share with you today that I made before our summer adventures began. I decided to send a box of goodies to 3 of my favorite girls and was inspired to make the box look like part of the present.
I took a shoe box and primed it with gesso, then gave it a coat of a mixture of different color blue paints. I had some colored images and a few pieces of patterned paper left over from other projects and put them all together to decorate my box. All pieces were glued with assorted HELMAR glues.I painted a lighter shade of blue on the areas I wanted to write my addresses on.I really like how this digi image looks like a postage stamp. It is one of my favorites from the Pretty Primitive set at Lindsay's Stamp Stuff :)
More favorite LSS - these are from the Doodle Flowers set.I used these Doodle Flower favorites to cover over a "mess up". LOL The patterned paper is from a paper kit in Lindsay's SHOP HANDMADE store, studio g stamp and a bird that I bought somewhere in my earlier travels...These were cut from scraps using Tim Holtz dies. More die cut digi papers from Lindsay's Shop Handmade store, along with a studio g stamp.
This was such a fun project to do, and really didn't take much time at all. The best part is that you can buy these papers and stamps or anything thing else at Lindsay's Stamp Stuff (at Mygrafico) on sale today and tomorrow!!!
Please let me know what you think of this project - it is my first attempt at altering a box, so I could use a few ideas and suggestions. What have you altered lately? Leave me a link, and I will check it out and see what inspires you :) Have a great weekend, Everybody!
