Haunted House Book Shelf

Hi everyone and welcome back!

This week Jo at Imagine if is having a blog hop so if you have joined in here you can go back for a look at what Carol has created
This weeks Design Team project for Imagine if is keeping with the theme of Halloween.
I used a chipboard house box from Imagine if and begun the process of staining all the edges then covering in Kaisercraft "Through the looking glass" paper.

I have left off one side so I could create a space for a few Halloween mini Junk Journals and added a draw to the top for storage and some interest!

The mini junk journals were created using packing card from Imagine if and little scraps of the papers from my stash.

For me the fun always begins in the embellishing! so I have added metal fittings for the draw handle and the legs. The spiders and skulls I rubbed with Viva Inka,a selection of flowers also Jo has these.
I have created an oval shape and glued bead around the edge to create a tray holding potions.

Finished off with some tea dyed trims and seam binding and draped black creepy cloth for more impact!
Happy Halloween!
Hop on over to see what Tash has created!

Halloween Card

Hi everybody and welcome back to my happy place!

This weeks design team project for Imagine if
 I've chosen to make a card using laser cut alphabets.

At our house we celebrate Halloween! ;)
Starting with my letters I only had one O so making do I cut the Q to make the second O.
I then painted them orange and inked the edges using distress ink after the paint had dried.

While those where set aside to dry fully I grabbed some black cardstock and cut to the size I wanted and embossed with a spider web. I then used a silver ink pad and highlighted the web which came out amazing!
After roughing up the edges I cut out a jack 'o' lantern face and placed a piece of orange paper behind to make it stand out .

Now I could place the letters :D
once they where firmly attached I decorated with a nice little bow and placed a metal spider on it giving it that cute but creepy look.

Happy Halloween everyone!

Christmas is coming

Hi everyone and welcome back to my happy place and this weeks Design Team creation for Imagine if!
This weeks theme is "Frames"
Christmas is only 12 weeks away and im not one for leaving it until the last minute to create gifts for family and friends, with that in mind I had some awesome chipboard embellishments in my kit along with these gorgeous weeny frames.

I had a plan to create wall hangers from old CDs  so I started covering with a collection of adorable Christmas themed papers, once dry I inked the edges.

Next I painted all the frames red, once dry I used a thick coat of mod podge and a good sprinkle of glitter then another coat of mod podge to seal it!  Lots of Christmas sparkle!

I next attached the frames just along the bottom so a photo can be added.

Next is my ever fun part... to embellish! with a selection of Christmas themed chip board pieces that I have used Di stress inks to add colour,some flowers and leaves.
Final touches are some lace trim and a hanger before covering the back with another CD and matching papers!

Pearls, bows, butterflies and sentiments complete!
I cut down a photo to fit in the small frame...Perfect!
Hope you enjoyed this early Christmas treat and thank you for stopping by!
