Altered Shabby Cuff

Howdy all!  I was inspired by some wonderful ladies from the Creating With Details Group on Face book.  Thanks, to Mai, Robbin and Vanessa who also did tutorials.    
This was my first try to even attempt to make a cuff.  After I saw this cuff in the clearance dept at Hobby Lobby I knew I could alter it!
Add a few laces, gems, and laces and  look at my results!
I love the touch of the Sari Ribbon mixed with lace!  This ribbon is from www.creatingwithdetailsstore.com.  You can use my Discount Code: Cathy20  and get 20% off your purchase of $25 or more.
Coffee dyed flowers were also added and I painted the edges and stamens of the gold flowers with Deco Art Elegant Finish Renaissance Brown.
The chain with pearl trim is from my stash.  And now a view of the closure.
Thanks so much for stopping by !   Happy Crafting!

How to Decoupage... to making a Shabby Trunk

Howdy all!  So happy to share with you another  altered trunk.  Actually it looked more like a wooden suitcase when I first started.  Warning I have a very long tutorial (Sorry) on You Tube, that is from start to finish. Here are some pictures of my completed project.
This is actually a Dt project for www.creatingwithdetailsstore.com .   In this picture are:
Dangle trim may be out of stock
I created this bow using lace and Bias binding.  Other thing I used from CWF are:
Ivory and Tan Satin Rose I used the smaller size
White Leaves are from a previous DT kit and are currently unavailable
Above you can see other things I used from CWD store:
Crown is from my stash

Above shows the Ornamental Corner feet that are sold by Tim Holtz products. Below shows The Heartfelt Creations Antiquity Paper Collection that I applied to the wood box with Mod Podge.
Below you  see how I decorated the inside of the box.  Fabric is from Hobby Lobby and most of the trims are from my stash.
I did coffee dye most of the trims that I used on this project.
now finally one last picture :
I did place 1/4" bunting under the fabric on the bottom so it would be padded.

Altered Bottle

Howdy All!   We are half way through the month and I have another DT project to share with you all! Many laces and trim are from www.creatingwithdetailstore.com.

This is a bottle that I totally altered into a complete new look.  The bottle was a clear glass bottle that I applied two coats of Gesso to.  After it was dry I then watered sown some acrylic paint and distress over the white Gesso. 

Sometimes I wonder why I put so much into something when usually my end results cover everything I started out with.  The digi images are by Angela Holt that I printed on fabric.  She has many images on her Etsy Store . Even the butterflies are her images!
Here are a few of the items from CWD that I used:
 I did use other trims but I no longer see them listed.  She may getting more in stock but I am not 100% sure.
The images are of Marie Antoinette and her children.  I made all of the flowers except the Satin Rose Bud.  Larger pearls and charms are from my stash.
Thank you so much for stopping by.  I also have a You Tube Tutorial so you can see how I created this.  I hope you are inspired!  God Bless You all! 
Happy Crafting!

An Altered Dress with Pictures

Howdy everyone!  I purchased three dress forms that were drastically reduced on clearance.  I knew that each would come in handy for a project.  Well today I share with you my first one. 

You will have to see the video to see what it looked like before.  Most of my trims and laces are from www.creatingwithdetailsstore.com   The bodice is made with an  Ivory Venise Applique - 509509
I did use the bottom portion of the original satin gown. It is covered with four various laces and trims:  Ivory Venise Gallon Trim, White Crochet Trim, White Embroidered Scallop Point trim and
White Lace Trim. Below is the back view:

Lots of rhinestones and pearl trim was used to embellish this beauty!
The dangle pearl  trim with rhinestones came from CWD; however, I do not see it listed. It may have been a special because I got it in the Shabby Chic Clutch Kit.

Yes we need some side views too!

Shabby Pillow

Howdy all!  Two posts in posts in one day.  Wow I guess you can say I've been very busy.  I got this kit and just could not wait to make this pillow. This pillow cover holds a 14 x 14 " pillow form.
If you watch the tutorial you will see how easy this was to  make.  My hubby thinks this is the nicest thing I have ever created.  Wow I'm not sure about that. 
I did use the June Pillow Kit plus a few other things from my DT from www.creatingwithdetailsstore.com.   I have various pictures to share with you.
I did add some Fiberfill underneath the image in the middle of the pillow for added dimension.
Thanks for stopping by!   I hope you are inspired to craft something!   Be sure to shop at www.creatingwithdetailsstore.com  and use my Discount Code:  Cathy20 and get 20% off your purchase of $25 or more.   Oh my I just love discounts!!!

Pictures of my Altered Rustic Clock

Howdy all!   I want to share some still pictures of my recent Altered Rustic clock.
I worked on this clock for one whole day and when I retired for the night I just wasn't feeling it with what I had worked on.  After some fresh coffee the next morning I entered my craft room and took all the flowers off the bottom portion  of the clock. (the top ones were not even on it yet). I replaced the flowers a little lower on the front of the clock so my images (found on Pinterest)  would be able to be seen more.  Yes!!!!I'm feeling it now.    Next I applied the Prima Butterflies, Pearls Spray, Wooden Post card, Pearl Flower center and all these are can be found at www.creatingwithdetailsstore.com
Before I applied any flowers at all I applied the White Embroidered lace around the face of the clock. Many of the items that were used were in my DT kit for  http://www.creatingwithdetailsstore.com/
Including the Prima Rustic Clock!  I found the ivory Muslin pleated trim in my stash so I added it around the face of the clock followed with some flat back pearl trim
I made bows out of pink ruffled ribbon and some ivory lace.  Applied more  Prima flowers.
I applied Tattered Rose Glimmer mist to the flowers.  Pink and Ivory Organza Flowerwere also added. 
All the wooden pieces are Prima and the metal clock is from my stash.   A complete tutorial is available and posted on You Tube. 
 I want to Thank Mai Larsen, owner of www.creatingwithdetailsstore.com for all of the wonderful trims and goodies I received in my DT kit.  She has top quality items in her store and you can use my Discount Code:  Cathy20 and get 20% off your total purchase of  $25 or more.  Love those discounts!!  Hope you are inspired and Happy Crafting!!!!
