Stage It!!!

Good Evening my crafty friends.

I am sharing with you today a project for this month's Designers Challenge. The theme this month is: Stage It. We are to create a project using the Stage It Stencils from the Pop It Ups line from Elizabeth Craft Designs and Karen Burniston.

 For my project, I decided to make an altered memory book. the book is a paper mache book from a craft store. (I have recently spotted some at Tuesday Morning as well)

Here is what the book looked like at the the start.

Here is the book in progress. You can see the new Gears stencil using some of the Antique Gold glitter from ECD mixed with some Transparent Texture Paste from Ranger. I have also used some Distress Paint and the Mediallion Stencil, as well as the Chocolate glitter and the Flourish stencil.

Here is the completed cover. I have used gears from the Clock and Gears die and the New Steampunk Charms. The photo frame is from the Hanging Charm Pull Card Die.  I have also incorporated the a foil diecut from the Chicken Wire Die and some chains from the ECD Chains die set.


Here is a closer look at the front of the cover.


I decided to also alter the spine of the book. I created some faux leather from chipboard and used the Trendy Tiles embossing folder to complete the look.

Supplies Used:

Window Pull Card

Hello everyone!

It is time for another Designer's Challenge for Karen Burniston's Pop It Ups. The theme for March  is Pull Cards. For this months challenge, I decided to make a Window Pull Card.

On the front of my card I used the "Happy" from the Happy Birthday Pop Up.  The Curvy Ovals from Elizabeth Crafts add a fantastic embellishment.





Here is the card opened up. I made the Easter Eggs using the Easter Eggs dies from Elizabeth Crafts and Colorburst by Ken Oliver. The tab feature is fantastic as it keeps the flip part from opening up.







When you pull the tab, you can see there is an area to write a message.
