I love to alter things - if you haven't noticed!!  Here is my latest 2 projects, just 2 paper mache type pre made boxes.  Lots of Mod Podge, hot glue!!  The boxes were plain and I took some small bits of music paper, and an old book - tore them up and stuck them to the box.  Then I used the Tim Holtz Distress stains to color it, with some acrylic pain to finish it off.  Lined the box with old book paper.  Edged the box in lace type seam trim.  And then went to town on the top.  Used Tattered Florals die, weathered clock die, Marianne's Designs rolled flower die, tiny tags and tabs die, elegant flourishes die and Martha Stewart Butterfly punch.  Used a variety of papers from my stash!!

Hope you like them.  Thanks for stoppin' by...Lisa

Tim Holtz Altered Mirrror & Gift Bag...

Simple IKEA mirror was used as the base - and the imagination took over!!  Loved doing this frame!  Lots of Tim Holtz, old book pages, MS Butterfly & hydrangea punch, PTI Button Boutique, vintage buttons, corsage pins, cork

Love Tim's Kraft resist paper and the glassine paper.

Cute Easter cards I made for both of my girls!

Seriously?  This is so not me, but a great friend asked if I would make a special card for her MIL's 70th Birthday and she loves to quilt - how could I say NO?  Couldn't...

Altered gift bag for a teenage boy.  Used grunge paper, swivel clasp, embossing folder, gadget gears, old page from book, and masking.
