Craft Hoarders Anonymous Blog Challenge 20 - Box it Up!

Hello Bloggers,

I am back again with Craft Hoarders Anonymous blog for another wonderful challenge and our sponsor is My Artistic Adventures.

Our challenge is to create some sort of altered box. You can create a box from scratch, or you can alter a pre-made box. Your box can be made of paper, wood, chipboard, plastic, or metal. As long as you dig into your hoard to decorate a box, you have met the challenge requirements! The box does not have to be used as a can be used as home decor or for any purpose you can imagine. Let's box it up!

I altered a Graphic 45 Book Box.  Oh what fun it was to alter,  so many compartments to alter! I used Kaisercraft Be-You-Tiful Collection.  Love the vintage colors and patterns.

Closer look on the top.  I mounted the "Memories" tag on 
chipboard to give it a lille more dimension.

 Closer look at my Rosette.  I love the burgundy color.

Get Well Soon - a2z Scrapbooking November Challenge

Hello Bloggers,

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend.  I know I did!  I am here with a2z Scrapbooking with a new challenge for the month of November.  The challenge is "Anything Goes". Don't you love anything goes challenges?  It's an endless possible of creating anything.  I am sharing a get well card, I made with the Hero Arts Feather clear stamps.  This stamp is so versitle.  I stamped the feathers with versamark and used the Hero Arts sparkle white embossing powder.  Have you ever used Hero Arts embossing powders?  If not, you should try them.  They give you a nice crisp image when you emboss.  I also used the brush stamp to get my background and used a few colors to make the colors stand out.  

Also, don’t forget if you’d like to buy any products from the store, use the discount code, Donna15 to get 15% off. There are some great Hero Arts products!
