Warm In The Spring Layout

Back after quite a long time!

Here I have used Altenew’s Reflection Scrapbook Collection to make this layout. They have put together some great watercolour inspired 12×12″ papers. Absolutely love them!

Grabbed one of the papers included in the Reflection Kit. Next, I used a spray mist by Prima Marketing ‘Lime Wedge’. Then I put together some of the cutouts that were included in the collection. I have used a sticker sheet and few die cuts. The leaves die cuts come in white so you have a choice of either colouring it or putting as it is. I actually distressed it using Mowed Lawn. I kept some parts dark and rest a bit lighter to give it a leafy look.

The flowers are by Prima Marketing and Recollections. The silver embellishment with the word ‘Blessed’ was bought from Micheals and the ‘Create’ bulb is by Prima Marketing from their section Junkyard Findings. Finally, the word ‘Memories’ is from a sticker sheet by Heidi Swapp. It went perfectly with the layout. And that is all it!

Here’s another closeup so you can see a little more details!

Until next time!

Dead Orchids Altered Box

Hello, everyone!
I am finally back from my break and with the new post. YAY for me! I am here with a new Altered Box.

I painted the entire box with Distress Paint in Brushed Corduroy and then covered the lid using a paper by Recollections Tattered and Worn Cardstock Paper Pad. I distressed the paper with my all-time to-go Distress Ink in Vintage Photo. Then I sprayed some using Prima Marketing Color Bloom spray in Empress Gold and Heidi Swapp spray in Amethyst.

Next, I assembled some embellishments (FAV part). I Found a KEY in my stash (I am sorry I have no idea who’s it is) which I painted using Distress Paint in Dusty Concord and Dusty Attic‘s Gears in Tarnished Brass. I liked how it gave me a shimmery effect. Then took out some lace which I got from my home country Pakistan 3 years ago (OOPS!) and some metal embellishments which I bought from Micheals except the vintage looking frame and roman number which are by Tim Holtz. Flowers are by Prima Marketing from their collection ‘Tales of You & Me’ and also the small bulb that reads out ‘cute’. I have been saving this pack since FOREVER – literally. In the end, I felt something was still missing so I added a lacey twine on the side of the lid. It gave a box instant wear-off look which was very much needed.

This is it for now – I hope you like the post. Do leave some love below!

See you next time!

Scented Memories – Album In A Box

Hello, everyone!
I am back again with the post and this time I did the album in a box sort of a thing. I have already posted the details of the box in my earlier blog post. So, in this one, I will be covering the album.

For the album, I have used Prima Marketing Vintage Emporium in A4. It’s such a beautiful collection with subtle floral designs, vintage newsprint and musical sheets.

I tried making a different album than my usual one. I gave it a book sort of a look. It opens in the centre but the spacing is more on the left than on the right. I have used a velcro on the inside. First, I splattered few drops of Prima Marketing ‘Empress Gold’ using a brush. Then went on with the embellishments, the florals are a mix of Recollection and local store. That small ‘love’ typo bulb is by Prima Marketing and the chipboard ‘celebrating you’ is by Dusty Attic which I have painted with Distress Paint in Black Soot. I have also added some die cuts of gearheads. Those are by Sizzix and comes in a pack of 22 thinlit dies (I am not even kidding!). It’s designed by Tim Holtz. It has become my all-time FAVOURITE set. Last but not least, to give a bling I have used a flat pearl bought from Micheals.

The inside is covered by Prima Marketing papers and I have added few embellishments to make the entire thing pop. There is a pocket on the centre where I have added photo mats. Then on the left side, I have just clipped few tags with a paper clip. And that is all it!

Hope you all enjoy today’s post!

Mad Hatter Altered Box

Hello, everyone!
I’m back after a LONG long break. Some of you might know it has been quite long since I have blogged. Anyway, so here I come with one of my recent creations. I have given a name Mad Hatter (those of you who don’t know I love giving random names to my projects).

Let’s dig in, shall we?
I got a great deal on a set cardboards, thought of altering one of them recently. It’s approx size is 4.5×4.5″. At first, I covered it with Black acyclic paint from Apple Barrel. Then took a cut piece of a paper from Classique Beauty 12×12″ paper pad by Authentique and distressed it completely using Old Paper and Antique Linen. I then distressed the sides with Vintage Photo (all time favourite!). Next, I stamped some Tim Holtz scripted stamp using Distress Embossing Ink and covered in ‘Heirloom Gold’ Perfect Pearls. Then sprayed using Heidi Swapp ‘Patina’ & ‘Black’ and Prima Marketing ‘Empress Gold’. Afterwards, I used a Dusty Attic stencil and used a Prima Marketing Finnabair texture paste in White Sand. It actually turns transparent so to add a little bit of a colour I dropped in few drop of Brushed Corduroy Distress Paint.

Secondly, went in with the embellishments. ‘Little Story’ and Butterfly wood icons are by Prima Marketing and ‘Sweet’ wood veneer is by Jillibean Soup from their Today pack which I have distressed it with Black Soot Distress Paint. The beautiful layer of clocks is by BoBunny from there Heritage Layered Chipboard pack. Flowers are a mix of Recollection and Prima Marketing & Vintage Trinkets are by Finnabair.

Finally, topped it with some sequins and Recollection flat pearls to give a little bit of a bling.

I truly enjoyed making it. Hope you all like it.
See you soon!

Altered Photo Frames

Hello friends!
Lately, I have been working on altering photo frames which I got from Ikea. I thought of making a combined post of it. They’re pretty easy to alter and I think it’s a perfect gift for your loved ones.
All I did was paint them with Distress Paints. First, one is painted with Shabby Shutters, then next is in Antique Linen and the last one is in Spiced Marmalade.
Then added all the required embellishments. Few of them are by Prima Marketing, Recollections. Tim Holtz, Finnabair etc.

Pulled up a mint colored cardstock, distressed it and went on with the mists. Next, I used White Sand Textured Paste. Btw this was my first time using this one and I didn’t read that it dries out transparent. My bad!! However, I loved how it looked in the end so it was a win win. Then I arranged the embellishments and layered up some more cardstocks.
Here is a closer look to it! Hope you like it!
