Flashback Friday~Washi Tape Projects

Hi Friends! You know how everyone does the Throwback Thursday on FB? Well I thought that I would start doing a series of Flashback Fridays where I show you guys some projects I've done in the past. In the mix you might see some I've posted about before, prior DT projects or challenges, videos posted on my YouTube Channel and some I just never got around to sharing online. I've also had some new followers since a lot of these were originally posted so I figured they might like to see them as well. So I hope you will all enjoy my Flashback Fridays :)

The projects I'm re-sharing today are some crafty items I made using Washi Tape. These were originally posted as a bonus DT project for Crafting Ireland.

Here's a video that's on my YT channel that shows each item up close...

I have to confess...this last one is my favorite and I still have this displayed in my vintage purple shabby hutch and I can see it when I'm crafting away at my desk. Makes me smile : )

So the purpose of this bonus DT project was to show the readers of Crafting Ireland some different ways to use Washi Tape other than laying it flat on the page. 

I hope I was able to show you some fun new ways to use your Washi Tape. If you crafters are like me...I have a ton of this stuff and I really do need to use it more in my crafting. 

I hope you like the new Flashback Friday series. Be sure to leave me a comment if you have any questions or if you want to see me feature a prior project. 

Happy Crafting : )

3 Girl JAM Crinkle Ribbon & Lace Storage

Hi Friends! I'm excited to share my latest craft room storage project with all of you. Not only does this look super cute in my craft room...it's the perfect way to store and display my yummy Crinkle Ribbon from 3 Girl JAM.
I also have a video that walks you through my creative process for this along with a short tutorial on how I created the tags....

Using some chipboard & book pages, I made the tags using the TH Ornamental Die and covered them with Matte Modge Podge....

Love how these look in my vintage sewing drawer....

I am really pleased with my new storage solution and this project was long over due. Altering vintage items and reusing them in my craft room or in my home is one of my most favorite things to do. 

If you want to pick up some of this yummy Crinkle Ribbon from 3GJ I have a discount code for you to use: AH10

Enter this upon checkout and you will receive 10% off your entire order. How cool is that??? You can check out all of the amazing goodies Julie as to offer HERE .

Happy Crafting : )

I also have a video that shows you the project up close along with the crinkle ribbons I used on this project....

I made this for one of my sisters-in-law as a thank you gift for having us over for Easter dinner on Sunday. She loved it!!

Thinking of You

Hi Friends! I have a special card to share with you today. This is for a good friend of mine who recently lost her mom. I wanted to send something to her that would let her know that I was thinking about her. I've lost a parent myself so I know the grief and how hard it is to move forward when something like this happens. 

I also have a video that shows you the card up close along with the products I used....

LOL...sorry I had to throw this one in here. She was looking at me like this when I was taking my pics of the card : )

I really love how this card turned out and I'm hoping my friend loves it as well and it brings her some comfort knowing that she has friends keeping her in their thoughts and prayers. 

Thanks for stopping by and for checking out another ScrappinAbby post.

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 : )

Products used:
TCW-mini Cherry Blossoms stencil
Mon Ami Gabby-silver material
Lindy's Stamp Gang Sprays-please see video for all that I used
