Looking for Inspiration?

You don't have to look far if design ideas aren't coming easy.  I've been eyeballing this tissue box for some time and was finally inspired to make something of it.  I LOVE the colour combination and have saved 3 boxes now, so I decided it was time to get creative:

I added some 'Glitter Glue' (Wal-Mart) and a couple of rhinestones:

An embellishment was added by coloring a vellum butterfly (Buck or Two) with Sharpies to match:

A little bit of ribbon, some glitz and a contrasting background for a 'frame':

Here's another variation, a bit more involved, but contact me if you would like to learn how I did it.  Hint:  Two embossing techniques were involved:

The final results!

Cool Nail Polish Technique

Here's a really cool effect for cards or scrapbooks and a great way to use up old nail polish. It's easy, a bit messy and good ventilation is important:

I found some gorgeous colours at the local dollar store:

It's so easy and so much fun! If you want to find out how I created these, join our card club or inquire about my workshops. Contact me for more info.
