"Friend" Altered Frame for Kaboodle Doodles Challenge #143: Fall themed - Cards, Gift Boxes or Decors

Kaboodle Doodles' Challenge #143 is "Fall themed - Cards, Gift Boxes or Decors". You could submit any project as long as it fits the challenge theme. Winner to be drawn randomly with sponsor prize of $10 Euro voucher from In 2 Stamps Tues, November 6, 2012 at US timezone. Participants have until Sun., November 4, 2012 to link their entries at the Kaboodle Doodles Challenge Blog.


I have a few bunch of frames on storage.  I guess I was hoarding a few frames with thoughts of creating or altering them as either shadow boxes or just an altered frame.  Well, this week's challenge sure got me right at work with (1) of my frames in storage / stash.  I looked for a few of my fall themed materials and found in my search:  fall leaves from Michelle Hodges, a bunch of charms left over from cross-stitching days, extra twine, a bunch of chipboards I got on sale from Karen Filipino & the chipboard title for my project coming from Virginia Cortez all the way from Brunei.  Thanks to you ladies & friends - that did made my project possible.  Without further adieu, here's my altered project:

"Ballerina Girl" LO for Let's Get Sketchy Challenge #35: Scraplifting Challenge

For the 5th week of October 2012,
we have a new kind of challenge - a Scraplifting Challenge.

We're asked to scraplift any of our co-DT's LGS LO.
Now, isn't that a neat and awesome challenge?
With the overflowing talent my co-DTs have,
I'd grab the chance to scraplift one of their works.

Assigned for me to scraplift was any of Laura Whitaker's LGS work.

Here's my chosen LO from Laura's LGS' DT LOs:
(her June 18th LGS inspiration LO)

Here's my lift or LO version:
SUPPLIES:  Pattern Paper: Echo Park's "Le Ballet du Grand" Mini Theme Collection kit;  Stickers: Echo Park's "Le Ballet du Grand" Mini Theme Collection kit;  Cut-outs: Echo Park's "Le Ballet du Grand" Mini Theme Collection kit; Pearls: Queen & Co, Kaisercraft; Flowers: Prima; Glitter Heart Foam Stikcers: Filstar Distributor Corp.; Baker's Twine: WRMK; Other: pink heart doily.

Well, it's not an exact scraplift.  But I really do want to remain true to Laura's inspirational LO.  I scraplifted the layers of pattern paper around the photo . . . I just added a doily heart mat.  Then I had the photo skewed a little and lifted having baker's twine wrapped on the lower portion of my photo.  I wanted to remain minimalist but the LO calls for more color around the heart doily matted photos.  Thus, the "Happy Feet" border strip and the tag on the left side.  I just had to balance the LO out with stickers on the top portion of my LO.  I hope it was not that bad, eh?

I still wanted to add stitching on the last layered pattern paper and some blings or rhinestones on the "Pointe" tag.  I'm still thinking about it.  Maybe I'd do some re-touching soon . . . but for now, this LO stays as is.  Maybe you could change my mind . . . . 


Very truly Yours,

"Ghost" Halloween Card for Let's Make Greeting Cards

This is my 4th handcrafted card for Let's Make Greeting Cards.  The theme I had to work with was "Halloween".

I only have a few Halloween materials in my stash to work with due to the fact that we don't celebrate or indulge in any Halloween celebration.  The said occasion is not that widely observed or celebrated in terms of festivities here in my country.

I have to thank Michelle Hodges, our former DT Coordinator with another site I'm with, for she sent me some Halloween stuff last year as a gift and a few more as part of my winnings in her challenge at Sketches4All.

I enjoyed creating this card, adding some mystery, some pizazz with the abundance of glitters and glittering embellishments on my card.  Withouth further ado, here's my Halloween card going with my own "Ghost" theme:
SUPPLIES: White Textured Cardstock: DCWV; Pattern Paper: Bo Bunny – “Back to Basics” Whoo-ligans Collection; Purple Thread: DMC; Others: Bat Die Cut, Ghost Sentiment Die Cut title, Black Lace, Olive Green Ribbon, Olive Green Fabric Flower, Glittered Small Purple Flowers (gifts from Michelle Hodges).
