Thankful for You

Today I'm sharing with you lovely crafters on how the Happy Camper & Friendly Forest lines go so well together. As the theme for the projects revolve around being thankful, I'd like to share with  you'll a layout I created featuring the two blessings in my life, my baby girls :) I am thankful for having them in life. They bring immense joy and never fail to lift my spirits on a trying day. Here's my layout featuring them..

Altered Notebook

Hello there! Sharm here to share with you a notebook I altered using the lovely chipboard frame by I Kropka and Prima Marketing Papers.

I basically cut a 4x6piece of patterned paper, adhered it to the cover of the notebook.

Then, I picked out the frame of my choice and removed the centre oval piece. I decorated that piece with a cut out image of the fairy and further worked on the vines and flourishes of the frame by applying acrylic paint, twinkling h2os and silks.

Once dried, I placed in onto the front cover and went on to embellish with handmade flowers and fussy cut details.

Here are some pics on what my project looks like:

Materials Used: 

OWLove - frame # 2 medium symmetric

Prima Marketing Patterned Paper & Stamp
Twinkling H2O
Distress Inks


Hi there chipboard lovers and fellow crafters! :) As you indulge in a warm cup of cocoa while you do some blog hopping, I have a little altered project to share with you today. You know those little, teeny tiny hangers that come with children's clothes? Well, I have turned it into a photo hanger!

It took quite a bit of work to put this into place, but I completely love the end result and I hope you will too!

Just to share how I made it:

1) I picked out the chipboards that I wanted to use. I used gesso on them and for those that I wanted to further decorate, I applied mod podge and dipped in a bowl of glitter. I also topped it off with glitter paint by Martha Stewart and Distress Paints
2) I cut a piece of metal chain into 2
3) Next, I attached one end to the hanger, while at the other, I added little wooden pegs
4) I embellished some transparent photo frames by Crate Paper with some ephemeras from Maggie Holmes' Open Book Collection
5)  Lastly, I added the photos to the pegs!

Here's my project in pictures:
