Playing at the Niche with Beatriz & Kaiser Craft

Last night at about 11:30 Beatriz (From Amazing Grace) and I started on this amazing Kaiser Craft Family Tree that we made a Valentine's Tree.  We painted the wood brown and then embossed it with Bronze Metal Art thick embossing powder, and it just gave it amazing texture.  The we decorated the little ovals with the amazing new Kissing Booth from Basic Grey.  Here are some close ups of them!

 This is the Tim Holtz bird cage that I made, thought it would be perfect hanging on our tree :)

 This is another one that I made, I love the little bird, he's so friggin cute!

This one is my favorite that I made, I love how I made it like a little shadow box with the lace around the edges. 

 This one is fun, I used bloomers in the back as a ruffle!

 Beatriz made this one, I just LOVE it!  It's probably my favorite one she made!

 This is another one Beatriz made, it's too cute!

Our beautiful creation is on display at the Paper Niche for those of you who are local in South Florida, and it's so much prettier in person!!!  Can't believe I have to wait until March to play with Beatriz again!  I've got a few more projects we made together I'll share later on in the week!!

I'm Published :)

If any of you happened to pick up the Cricut Home Decor magazine, you might of stumbled across something!  I found out a few months ago that I was being published in this issue, the funny thing is that the pictures I took last minute of something that I had originally made for my art room and hadn't even posted on my blog before!  So needless to say that I was super excited!  I've submitted two things to be published, and both of them got picked!!  The next one I've got coming out is in April in the Create Idea Books: Spring Mini Albums!

Look there I am!!  The hardest part was trying to remember all the items that I used and the steps in doing so!  I didn't think you had to be that detailed when I originally submitted!  But when you get the form to send in with your items for photographing it's like 3 pages!

Here is the full shot of the banner!  I miss it!  It's been gone for like 6 months already!  I should get it back in a month or so!!  

 Here are the close up pictures!  Thank you for taking the time to check it out :)

Altered Jewlery Box & Some News!!!

I made this altered Jewelry box for my mom for Christmas!  She totally loved it!  It's Prima!  I fell in love with this line when I was at the Niche and bought the art papers to line the trays with.  The nest is Melissa Frances and is totally the perfect size for the box.  Around the box is ripped and running stitches muslin that looks super cool!

Totally excited with how it turned out and so was Mom!!  The box I purchased at Michael's for $7.99 with a 50% coupon, so $4... not to shabby!  I have a few more projects that I need to photograph!

I'm also super excited to announce that I was selected to be on the Precocious Paper Design Team!!  I'm very excited to be on the team and am so looking forward to working with some amazing products!!!
