Altered Art~ Christmas Puzzle Collage

Hello Everyone!!

Last night I got together with my three Dear Friends (Michele, Shirley, & Iris). We created this awesome altered art Christmas puzzle collage. We first started with a blank chipboard puzzle and then embellished with various collage sheets designed by Michele from Swing Shift Designs. She creates beautiful vintage collage design sheets. You can find them HERE. We decorated our own puzzles and then at the end we exchanged 3 pieces each from our own puzzle. This is the finish product of our altered art project. I hope you enjoy me sharing this with you. We had a wonderful time sharing with each other and crafting the night away. :)

I adhere the puzzle pieces to medium weight chipboard and then embellished it with some vintage lace I had in my stash. As well as adding one of my handmade organza flowers & some stick pins (2 of them are from a swap & 1 is handmade by me).

Christmas Cards & Tags

Hello Everyone!!!

The Christmas Season is upon us and I started working on my Christmas greetings this year. I have until Friday, December 10th to get some of my cards out for a few of my oversea friends and the others will be mailed shortly after.

I used various embellishments, handmade organza flowers, gift tags I purchased at Michaels, Christmas buttons, etc.

These are the tags I created so far:

I also made a few stamped image cards and colored the images with Copic Sketch Markers. I'm still learning how to use these markers to their full capability. I used clear stamps from Stampavie. I really love them as they are so whimsical. I hope you enjoy them too.

Last but not least a layout page I created for my Mom. I used the Heartwarming Vintage Creative Scraps by Crafty Secrets. My Mom loves Angels so I thought this would be perfect instead of a greeting card. I can't wait to give it to her.
