Happy Mother's Day

Here is the Mother's Day card that I made for my mom. She loved it when I gave it to her. :) I used to Tim Holtz Sizzix die for the bird and bird cage, and K&Co Life's Journey paper. I put tulle in the background and painted and distressed it. I think it turned out really cute. Hope you enjoy :)

Altered Book

Hey everyone! So this is what I've been up to lately. I altered a book that I bought at goodwill. I was inspired by Marion Smith on her live show a while ago. She had altered a book like this one. I tore all of the pages out from the cover. Then I just went to town painting on the cover. After that was done I cut pages of patterned paper to fit inside. I sewed them together and then glued them to the cover. Then I just embellished the front of the book. :) I think it turned out really cute and I can't wait to start putting pictures in it.
