Birdhouse Ornament for My Sheri Crafts

This week's requirement at My Sheri Crafts is to create a Christmas-themed ornament/home decor. I altered a birdhouse that I got from Michael's. The base of the birdhouse was painted with crackle paint and I covered the roof and sides with paper from DCWV and Graphic 45. The awning at the roof was made using the Martha Stewart Cornice border punch, and I made a wreath using Martha Stewart branch punch. The "berries" are made of Liquid Pearls. I added ribbon "pillars" along the edges and Stickles to frame the "windows".

Video for Webster's Pages Vintage Mini Album I

Double click for 1080p resolution. :-)

Webster's Pages Vintage Mini Album I

I have plans to make several other vintage mini albums using Webster's Pages, hence the title. :-) I used the mini papers from Webster's Pages and added some coordinating paper from Anna Griffin and K&Co. Pamela was the recipient of this album and she likes the pink, white and black color combination and vintage.
More product details are discussed in the video on the next post.

Thank You Notecards for My Sheri Crafts

This week's theme at My Sheri Crafts is "Be Thankful". I decided to make "Thank You" notecards instead of focusing mostly on a Thanksgiving theme. There are so many things to be thankful for everyday, and not just on Thanksgiving. When I have a hard day, I close my eyes and count my blessings, and I realize how fortunate I am. :-)

These notecards measure 3"x3". I used designer paper and paper lace from K&Co. The sentiment is from JustRite Stampers, inked using ColorBox. I used clear embossing powder to finish off the look, and cut off the frames using Spellbinders dies. I added "pearls" using Enamel Accents and Viva Decor Pearl Pen. The flowers are from Prima.
