Altered Letters

Good Morning Happy Hump Day,

Today I am sharing with you altered letters I bought at Michaels. I bought these letters year and half ago with intentions of doing them for a birthday gift, but time got a way from me then Christmas came I said I would do them for Christmas that came to pass to, then another birthday came still didnt get them done. Well the time came for me to get them done the co worker I was making them for was transferring into another department, I had to get them done.  These are the letters from the $1.00 bin from Michaels

Here is the finishe project
I used modge podge to adhere the paper down, I used Tim Holtz distress ink oon the sides of the letters, the paper used Kellerkurtz & Company paper pad from Hobby Lobby I love this paper, i had used this paper pad on my altered clipboard.  Prima bling, flowers from I Am Roses & Michaels Recollection flowers  & butterfly on the letter L and, cut out postage stamp from Graphic 45 Ladies Diary. I modge podge it again once the paper was down to give it matte clear coat.
Then put all the embellishments on it. 

Sad it took me so long to get these done but they were worth the wait

Altered Clip Board

Good Morning Crafty Friends
Hope you had a wonderful weekend, I love my weekends they go by so fast.  Today I am posting altered clipboard.  I bought the clipboard at Staples on clearance for work.  The more I kept looking at it I thought I would decorate it. I checked out Pinterest to get some ideas and YouTube.
                                                    This is what the clipboard looked like
I used Modge Podge Matte to adhere my paper to the clipboard I put it on 
evenly and i used a sponge brush., paper I used is from Hobby Lobby called 

        Kellerkurtz & Company Paper Pack 

 I love this paper pad its a must have it you love vintage, I knew I could not embellish this too much because i was using it to write on so I was looking for embellishedments on the paper, I found what I was looking for I love vintage sewing machines, vintage dress forms ect... you get the what I am saying. here is the paper I chose when I saw this paper I knew I had to use it. Once the paper was over the Modge Podge I used a roller to roll out the bubble on the paper. 
below are the embellishment already on the paper no altering had to be done, I could still use the clipboard to write on.  
 . I put more Modge Podge over the paper evenly with a sponge brush and let it dry,  I didnt embellish the clip part because it would be used for work.  I did ad some embellishements where the screws were and some bling, I put Modge Podge over the bling to be sure it would not come off.
 Here is the back of the clipboard I love this paper pad its a must have if you love vintage, I have used this paper to another project I have done.  I will share with you later. I inked the edges of the clipboard with Tim Holtz distress ink vintage ink
  Here is the front of the clipboard I love how it turned out. 

Hope you like my post, Thanks for visiting my blog 
Have a Happy Monday.

Hello Crafty Friends,
Hope you are having a good day, today I want to share with you a swap I was in with a lady at work.  I have mentioned her before she is Miss Linda of LM creations. She and I did decided to challenge ourselves with a ATC Swap we made 4 cards,  the colors  we had to use were maroon, pink, brown, flowers, metal. We exchanged our csrds today below are her ATC cards they turned out beautiful. They are all beautifully done, but the one with the bird on it is my favorite. She knows I love birds and vintage bird cages. She also gave me some clear bags for these cards to go in a bird coaster which I may alter I cant use for a coaster way to cute to use.  She also gave me some vellum envelopes, and card with sayings on them.  This was fun participating in the swap. 

            Love how Miss Linda thought outside the box and used a different shape for a ATC card below.
                Below is the bird coaster I was talking about, I love it i think it will look pretty altered.

                                            I will also share my ATC cards that i gave her tomorrow.
Thank you for stopping by and visiting my blog.  I hope you enjoyed the ATC Cards, I will post my cards tomorrow.
