We missed quite a few of our *regulars* last night but had a great time. Vicki joined us again and so did Sherry (welcome back girls!).
Our altered trades were fabulous!
Here's the rest of mine (I teased you with this yesterday):
The side view shows you more of how we put these together.
Use the bottom of 2 Altoid tins.
Hinge them together.
Add heavy chipboard to the front and back so they'll stand on their own.
We all really liked Vicki's ribbon hinges.
Aren't they all wonderful! So much fun to create.
Karen showed us her newest domino, decorated with egg shells!
When is a tea cup not a tea cup? When Bonnie alters it!
Here's the bag Bonnie decorated with our latest obsession: embossing powders from Sparkle and Sprinkle. The colors and bling you can get from these powders is amazing! And the glitter - OH MY!
Stop by For Keeps Sake and see the rainbow of colors. I'm picking up some of the glorious fall colors in anticipation of the upcoming season. (yes, already tired of the hot weather.)
Here's what we've planned for our future trades:
August: We're making domino mini books. The trade is a one-on-one. Following are a couple of inspirational blogs:
and I'm sure there are some on pinterest.
September: Altered Tea Cups with a Christmas Theme. Following Bonnie's lead, we'll decorate the inside of a tea cup with holiday decor. This trade is a one-on-one. Not necessarily Christmas-y, but here are some inspirational blogs/photos:
You may choose to use the saucer (or not) or do as Bonnie did and hang the cup from a pretty ribbon like a Christmas ornament.
Whatever your choice, we hope you can jump in and join us for these inspirational trades.
Driving home from Create Your Imagination last night, I saw this:
What a way to end a day!
Hope to see you next time
