steampunk luggage bag swap

This was an altered box swap. I had a teabag tin with a hinged lid so used that. Using the G45 Steampunk papers i covered the tin and added cork feet. Using 7 Gypsies gaffer tape for the handle and brace attachements with brads, inked them. Inside i had a lightbulb on the ceiling wih a chain looped to the side and a on/off toggle switch on the bottom of the tin. Inside of course had papers too on the walls.. Loved this tin and must make one for myself.!!

Iced Cookies layout

This page is for a Dusty Attic challenge and the chipbds you see are theirs.I Like this page for its colours and an air of fun-ness!! Made these biccies for Corbans birthday class treat for the kids in his class. Monsters for the boys and handbags and cupcakes for the girls.

Boy layout : "THE CAP"!

Here's my youngest wearing his newest most favourite cap of the day. Spongebob. This cap served many years of school  summers and beach holidays. Often blowing into the tide from a boat or pier and a mad scramble to rescue "the cap" would take place. It once floated out to the mouth of a mariner entrance before we could rescue it in a kayak and fish net!!!!!!!2009-2012.

Vintage baby boy layout

This is a page featuring my Father. It was also a page/layout challenge for Dusty Attic. You will see the Label chippie used for the title. Crocheted flowers from Brenda and others from my stash. velvet 7gypsies leaves and banners around the circle. embossed paper from MME. and G45 little darlings for baby tags.

Altered Key

This is a swap for Faith: Nzaquaries, theme blue and white. Glued flowers mostly Kaisercraft, with a thick wire attached in a hoop  flowers glued onto the top with a bead dangle and owl charm hanging in the middle. 2 flag style words on the side. Little blue and white banners hang underneath. I think its turned out well considering ive never done an altered key. I think the project maybe way outside the actual idea of an altered key but figure it will be loved regardless.


For Dusty Attic June theme challenge. used a g45 pkt and the moon is dictionary paper ripped into strips. Corrugated board tree with a DA Chippie : twig and ivy vine and also dress form hanging on a wire loop off the twig. Covered with copper foil from my friend Brenda. Black diecut is a small spellbinders. Wings with glitter.
