Altered Picture Frame Swap on Your Paper Pantry

This month on Your Paper Pantry.ning   I participated in an altered picture frame.   These are clear acrylic frames you can get the 4x 6 for a dollar.   Turned them on there side and added post it notes and a calander.   I received mine from Roxy this week, so pretty and shabby chic.   I also made hers and sent it to her yesterday.  I made a video of both of these below.   For mine I used steampunk paper from graphic 45.  I threw in some I am Roses and a few bling and "Poof"  she be done.   Really like how it turned out.   Hope you all find some inspiration.   Thanks for looking.

RAK for Julianna

Hi all,

I have been following Julianna on You Tube at

Love her projects.   Never heard of Shabby Chic before her.   Her projects are absolutely georgous, and wow she can find heck of bargins at her thrift stores.    You all should check her out.

I took a box that you could hang keys in and holds letters, and fixed it up.   Really like the way it turned out.  Makes me look at those goodwill items more carefully.   Used trims from karlas001.etsy   and some from Hobby Lobby.   Box was painted metallic pink from folk art, then applied elmers glue and painted ivory over it.   Didn't crack as well as I would have liked, but it turned out nice.   I made the flowers from some trims, and old earring I found at goodwill.  Used I am Roses, and made a couple stick pins.  

Really hope she likes the box, can't wait til she receives it. 

here are some pics and the video on you tube.

Steam Punk album, all me

Well after my husband and I did the Bridal photoshoot, I knew I had to make a mini to show all my pictures in.   I absolutely love the Graphic 45 papers, and Steampunk is one of my absolute favorite.   I started this mini a while back and finally finished.   Used various trims, some flowers from I am Roses and some Tim Holtz accessories.  Lots of bling to.   Hope you all like it.   I had a lot of fun and love looking at those georgeous papers.
