Project #1: I used the World's Fair paper pad to create this collections tray. I fussy cut several images from the collection and added metal embellishments, some wood hot air balloons that I colored with distress ink and glossy accent, and finished up with flowers.
Project #2: I used Enchanted Forest to create a fantasy looking storybook. The album has pocket pages with photo mats inside. I made several flip out photo spots, with pockets and tags on the pages. I accordion folded paper and put it in the spine so it would look like storybook pages. I embellished with pearls, flowers and vintage metal pieces.
Project #3: I used the Rate Oddities paper pad to create this mixed media canvas. I created this dimensional letter using a technique that I show in the tutorial video below. I covered the canvas with the paper and used molding paste and stencils to create layers, which I sprayed with distress ink. The embellishments range from a drawer pull, to wood bird cages, flowers, gears, and pearls.
Tutorial: I created this tutorial video that walks through creating the dimensional letter I used on the project #3 canvas. It shows a creative way to create your own dimensional letters in any size and font that you would need for your project. At the end you get to see how I use the letter and complete the assembling of the canvas.

These are two boxes that I made my friends for Christmas. The paper collection that I used was Carta Bella Ahoy There collection pack. Inside the box I matted a picture of us at the coast by the lighthouse so when the ornament was not in the box there was still a sentiment to it. I chalked the edges in blue and used nautical ribbon, sea shells and buttons for embellishments.

I created these one page tutorials with measurements and step by step directions. I would walk though each tutorial with them just to make sure they were understandable, so they could use them at any time, with or without me.
