Christmas cards by Lynne

                     Now that it's officially November, I'm ready to start thinking about Christmas!
                I created these cards with the Winter Shapes Set and some Heartfelt Creations paper.

I absolutely love the skate piece!! I used a large needle to poke holes and laced up the front with embroidery floss after painting the body of the skate with acrylic paint and adding some dabs of brown and tan ink for a vintage look. I embossed the blade and the large snowflake with Stampendous Aged Silver.

                                        I covered the mug piece with paper, then sanded and 
                     inked the edges. The small snowflake was painted with acrylic paint and lightly inked.

There are many other great pieces in this set that I can't wait to play with; snowmen, penguins, icicles, holly leaves and lots more! Thanks for stopping by and happy creating!

Layout by Debbie and Large Tag by Dianna

Hi everyone!  Debbie with you today to share a layout using some beautiful lace and embellishments from Gina's and Craftsupplies1.  The lace is the perfect embellishment for wedding layouts and projects.  I added a little key to the journaling that also came from Craftsupplies1.  If you haven't shopped at Craftsupplies1, you should!  The prices are great and so is the variety!
 I simply painted this Flourish Frame Bella  with a seafoam acrylic paint and then embossed it with the same color of embossing powder.  I then rubbed it with Viva Inka in Copper giving this frame a Patina look.

Thanks for stopping by today and be sure to check out Gina's store for all the new products.  This frame is new and listed as the Flourish Frame Bella.

Here's a link to Craftsupplies1, be sure to stop by!

Window Shadowbox by Nancy

Hello Crafty Friends!  Today I am sharing a customized version of our Window Shadowbox.   This was an original piece that I'd had in my stash for quite some time, just waiting for that right moment of inspiration to come along.  In this version of the shadowbox, there is a dividing shelf across the center creating two areas to decorate.  You can request to have your shadowbox divided in the center as in this piece, or you can purchase it the way it is currently shown in the store, with no center shelf, to create a large window view of anywhere your imagination takes you.  

I kept the chipboard technique simple on this piece because lots was already going on inside the box.  I covered all of my chipboard with a light coat of gesso using a dry brush, script stamped with perfect medium, then colored with perfect pearls.  Simple but effective, this technique worked perfectly to compliment this piece.

Altered Cigar Box Cross Promotional Project by Kathi

Kathi here to share my last cross promotional project with Craftsupplies1, an altered cigar box.

Using the flat red lace,  I created a handmade flower with a streamer descending from the bottom.  In the center of the flower I have a pearl center and a butterfly resting on the flower.  I placed a stacked flourish off to the left side.  The flower is resting on a large crocheted doily that I received in a swap. I painted the butterfly scribbled frame, and added a photo mat behind it. I placed two metal butterflies from Craftsupplies1 in the lower right corner.

 Here is a close up of scribbled butterfly frame, and the butterfly has distressed stickles painted on it.
  Here is one of Gina's new stacked flourishes with one layer painted with white gesso and the other with black gesso.
 Inside of the lid, I used Gina's textured sheet, painted with white gesso.  Layered on top is a red doily and on top of the doily I placed a dressform and a frame.

 After the chipboard pieces were painted,  I distressed the dress form and placed the word love over the bodice along with a flower bunch and a flower cameo. A rose bunch was placed on the lower right which is from Craftsupplies1.

Layout by Donna and Cross Promotion Projects by the Craftsupplies1 Team

Hello Friends!  Today we have lots of inspiration to share.  First up we have our team member Donna sharing a gorgeous layout, and following that we are sharing more of the amazing October cross promotional projects created by the team at Craftsupplies1.  

It's Donna here today to share a fall layout using one of Gina's beautiful flourished frames.

I wanted to keep this layout very simple because I wanted the gorgeous Flourished Frame - Bella to be the star of the show! It's a really beautiful design! 

I prepared the chipboard frame with a coat of white gesso. I then painted it with Tattered Angels, Palm leaf, glitter paint. While still wet, I added pine needles and orange embossing powder.

I only glued the middle frame part down so that I could pull up and lightly twist up the leaves.

Thank you so, so much for stopping by Gina's and taking a look at my Fall layout!

Hello friends! Today we would like to share more of the truly amazing projects by the Craftsupplies1 team for our Cross Promotional this month. We have been so inspired by Julie's team and are so grateful for all their hard work and creativity!
Here we have a dual take on our large alarm clock. The left hand side is created by Becky C, and on the right by Corene P. These ladies have done an outstanding job and really have shown the versatility of this piece. Great work Ladies!

Here is the link to their videos

Design team member Becky has also created this truly inspired box using one of our book boxes and some fun items from our store, including one of our dress forms and also one of the gears borders and corners. We love the earthy tones and gorgeous flowers from Craftsupplies1.

 Next up we have two of our standing dress forms decorated by Codi and Heather.  They are truly inspired work! On the left is Codi's take with a lovely shabby and chic look and on the right is Heather's vintage steampunk look. They are truly amazing creations!
Below are the links to their videos

Next up we have a wonderful creative take on our large spool.  This was created by DT Member Codi as well. She has incorporated our trees and given them some sparkle and shine! We love the fantasy look of the spool and the Craftsupplies1 parchment flowers add a gorgeous finishing touch.

And last but not least we have some fun and different projects from Ashley B. and Kristina O.
Ashley has stepped outside of the box creating these very cool canvas'. She has done them up in a shabby tea theme, with some of the tea string alongs, and alarm clock frame ups.  They would look amazing hanging in any kitchen or tea room!
On the right Kristina has altered one of our ATC shrines. We love the pretty in pink tones, which mix with some of the new fabric flowers that Craftsupplies1 has in stock.

Thank you so much to all the talented Designers from Craftsupplies1 and also to owner Julie as well. We are truly inspired by all of your work!  For more information on these projects please check out the videos linked above.

Halloween Projects by Deann and a Layout by Lynne

 Good morning, Deann here with a cute little witch photo or note holder.
I used the Be Witched Shape Set  and a clothespin.

I also made a matching gift bag.

 I finished the set off with a really awesome Halloween card. 
I used a Spiderweb from the Spiderweb Shape Set as the stop for the back of the card, this gives it an easel effect.  
The photo is framed with a Flourished Frame-Evie (coming soon)
I took the photo at a Haunted Manor in Ohio

Hi! Lynne here with a layout I created using a photo of my daughter and her boyfriend on the boardwalk at Point Pelee Provincial park this past summer. I was glad to find the perfect page for the fabulous Cattails piece that I fell in love with as soon as I saw it!

I spread texture paste on the cattails and the butterfly to create added dimension, then painted them with silver acrylic paint.  I had a great time adding a combination of mists, gelatos and inks to get the colours I had in mind to echo those in the paper and the photo. I also added a couple of the intricate doilies to finish things off.  The detail on the doilies amazes me every time I look at them! Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope I've inspired you get out your craft supplies and create something awesome!!
