Nest~Altered Configuration Box

Hi Friends! Today I have a home decor project to share with all of you. Once in awhile I get around to making something for myself and/or my house so I am exited to share this with you. 

I used one of the TH configuration boxes to create a piece of wall art I call, Nest. 





I also have a video...this shows you the project up close as well as the many items I used to create this...

I have to say that photographing this was a bit of a challenge for me as I normally take pics in my craft room but there was a shadow from the lip of the box and it was a gorgeous sunny day here yesterday so I did my best :) 

I won't go into too much detail in the post since I go over it pretty well in the video...so I'm just going to share some additional photos and the products I used...



I absolutely LOVE all the texture I achieved from the silver metallic material from Mon Ami Gabby along with the mini Cherry Blossoms stencil from The Crafters Workshop.




I haven't decided if I want to attach some burlap to this and use that as my hanger for the wall piece or if I want to attach some hardware to it. I kind of like the idea of just setting it on my mantle....guess I'll have to wait and see what speaks to me when I go to display it : )

Thanks so much for stopping by and for checking out another scrappy post. 

Happy crafting : )

TCW-mini Cherry Blossoms stencil

May Arts Retro Color Craft Challentge-Altered Clock & Mini

Hi Friends. Boy do I have a fun post for you crafters today :)  I was lucky enough to again participate in another Craft Challenge from May Arts . The theme for this challenge is a Retro Color Craft Challenge and you can see my project along with the other crafters who were asked to participate HERE .

I altered one of the Tim Holtz Ideaology clocks and created a small mini to fit on the inside...
I also have a video that shows you the project up close along with the items I used (I will have a process video up on my YT channel later today so be sure to watch for that)....

I used a TON of texture and sprays from Lindy's Stamp Gang on this clock and I really love how it turned out.



I was able to incorporate the 4 selections of May Arts ribbon on several elements of this clock. I even made a butterfly with some of the sequin trim. This was my first TH clock to alter and I can say it won't be my last :)

Be sure to check out all of the other creative projects over on the May Arts blog and don't forget to comment on the post while you're there. Bethney will select one winner from the comments to win a spool of their choice from May Arts. Pretty easy way to win a spool of their fab ribbon if you ask me : )

Thanks for checking out another ScrappinAbby post and for stopping by the blog today. I'll be posting another 3GJ DT project on my blog as well as the 3 Girl JAM Blog tomorrow so be sure to come back & see what I created with the yummy 3GJ goodies.

Happy Crafting!!

For Your Special Day

Hi Friends! Abby here and today I have another 3GJ DT project to share with all of you. My Mother-in-Law is getting remarried this weekend and I wanted to use some of the yummy new Distress Lace on her card. She didn't want a bridal shower per say so all of us daughters-in-law (there are 5 of us) are getting together to honor her with a dinner and some small personal gifts. I'm using more of the 3GJ goodies on her packaging so be sure to check out my blog for those project photos. 

I also have a short video that shows you the card up close along with the Distress Lace I used on the project.......


This lace is the perfect touch of femininity for this bridal card. 




I think my Mother-in-Law is going to LOVE this card. She loves lace and the 3 Girl JAM lace is simply gorgeous and adds so much softness, texture and dimension to the card. 

Be sure to shop at the 3GJ Store , the Distress Lace is on sale right now so it's the perfect time to grab some for yourself and use it in your crafting projects. Also if you enter this discount code upon checkout: AH10, you'll receive 10% off your total purchase. How cool is that???

Thanks for stopping by today and for checking out another ScrappinAbby post. I have a lot of projects I'm working on and catching up on now that I'm back to crafting post double hand surgery so be sure to keep checking back :)

Happy Crafting!!

Altered Mini Journal with Ribbon & Lace

Hi Friends! I am so excited to be sharing another fun project with all of you using some of the yummy 3GJ Crinkle Ribbon and the new Lace Bundles that are now available at the 3GJ Store . This is my first 3GJ post/project in two months, I've been recovering from hand surgery (both hands) and I was so excited to play with the new yummy laces Julie has created. I used it to decorate the spine in my altered mini journal...


I also have a short video that shows you the journal up close along with the crinkle ribbons and laces I used on the project....


Here are some additional photos of the journal...


 I love how this gorgeous lace looks against the script on this journal. There are so many uses for the new laces in your craft projects. 


Such a fun project to create. I made this for my "work mom" as she helped with a lot of my tasks at work while I was out on medical leave so I wanted to make something special for her. Using the new laces really added that special touch to this journal and I can't wait to give it to her. 

Thanks for stopping by my blog and for checking out another ScrappinAbby project. Be sure to stop by the 3 Girl JAM store and pick up some of the yummy new laces and other goodies available for yourself. 

Happy Crafting : )
