MMDesi9ns Presents: Boxes of Hope by the Kraftie Kre8ations Design Team






Hello Everyone
         Hi!!! Meka here of MMDesi9ns -The Purple Scrapper.
Getting diagnosed with a life threatening illness can be hard on anyone. It is always good to know you are not in it alone. The KK8 Design Team have made boxes of hope that can be filled with words  of encouragements. October is breast cancer month and we were asked this week to make a girl power pink box and fill it with love,words of encouragements, trinkets, and anything else to show the support of these many of women who have survived and who have lost their battle.





So in honor of my dearest friend Natalie Fralin that lost her
 battle with a form of cancer this past June. She will be dearly missed, of the projects that I will ever do this one holds dear to my heart .So before I start to cry let me tell you what I used and how this box came to life.


So first I needed a nice solid box and the good will was calling my
  name so I purchased this item for .25 cents at good will.  This is one place that you can go to look for things like lace,wooden boxes, etc. Good will is a wonderful place to find things to alter. This box was a jewelry box that just took all the contents out and layered different pattens of pink power paper by Me and My Big Ideas Paperpack.

I then used to different acrylic paints neon pink and regular soft pink for the outside of the box. I used a small frame and
 attachedit to the top of the box and added a dressform and decorated it to add texture and make the box stand out. So below are the supplies I used to make this beautiful box of hope.

Supplies List
1 wooden box
1 wooden frame
Acrylic Paints(Pink and Neon Pink)
Me and My by Ideas Paperpack
1 cut out Tim Holtz dressform
Lace and ribbon for the dress
Lace for around the box
some leftover breast cancer stickers
 and embellishments
Breast cancer brads and pink flowers
The word HOPE from some 
embellished words.


I hope you enjoyed my box of hope thanks for stopping by my page and taking this journey with me today to honor my friend
 Natalie Fralin.

MMDesi9ns Presents : Kiwi Lane Designs October Blog Hop!!!

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 




                                        Hello everyone!!! 
 If you came from Jennifer Budge's page then you are in the right place,  Hi!!! Meka here of MMDesi9ns -The Purple Scrapper.  This week I will be showcasing my work here using  Kiwi Lane Designs Templates.



 
Breast Cancer Accordion Card

 

 
For the first project we were asked to make a card honoring World
Card Making Day. So I made a Accordion Card for the Breast
Cancer Awareness.
 
I started with a 6" x 12" piece of cardstock. This will produce a folded card that measures 6" x 3". Fold the cardstock in half and crease the seam with a bone folder or creasing tool. Fold the top flap backwards on itself, lining up the edge with the spine of the previous fold. Flip the card and repeat for the other side. Crease all the folds. You should now have folds of cardstock that forms the basis of your accordion card.
 
I used the breast cancer Mambi sheets to help me make this beautiful card. I used  the Kiwi Lane Designs... Thoughtful 1b on the outside and 2b in the inside of the card. I also had to trace
 and cut each template to fit the card. I really enjoyed using these  templates for this project.  I will also continue to use the Kiwi Lane Designs Templates for future use. Hope you enjoy my card.
 
 

12x12 two page layout using Kiwi Lane Design Templates





I used all the Kiwi Lane Designs Templates for my second project
here I made a 12x12 two page layout. Halloween 1-4 templates were used on both sheets of cardstock. I also used stickles on the pumpkins and the ghost I will be purchasing these kiwi lane designs in the future to help me make beautiful projects .You also have to trace and cut the templates to fit on your page. These templates were so much fun to use and very affective when you are doing a 2-page layout.

Kiwi Lane Designs Templates
Thoughtful Templates
The Halloween Templates
Tim Holz Dress Form Di
Stickles Color (Silver)
2 12x12 Black sheets of Cardstock

Featured Fan Friday on All That Sitckles






Meka Matthews- MMDeis9ns

 

Hello Everyone!! Meka  here from MMDesi9ns I am happy to be the Featured Fan for this Friday again here at All That Stickles!! As you know I love purple so I try to add a little purple in all my projects but since this was a autumn theme project I had to leave the purple out just this time.  So today I am sharing these fall-themed projects  . I appreciate the beautiful seasons and the wonderful friends and family that are in my life!! I hope you enjoy my creations.


Altered Autumn Tag



For this tag I used a standard 2 in a half by 3 inches with the recollections paper from Michael's cut to the tag. I got the flower and the leaf from the flower section added a brad in the middle of the flower. I used the stickles X-mas red and Lime Green to bring out the tag. I cut one inch ribbon and folded about five to make a bigger ribbon.I also made a stick pen used to bring out the autumn theme. Below are more close ups to capture my detailed work. Enjoy!!!!

                                         








Autumn  Double-Layered Card





Here I used a plain chocolate brown cardstock folded it the
 long way then folded to cross ways. Open it up put a slight cut on the right side then folded the card slight fold then folded it all the way fold for the top of the card.I know this is a little confusing so I will do a video soon to show how I made the card. So as you know if you follow me I love scraps and more scraps. This card is what you call a scrap card. I used the Xmas Red Stickles on the leaves that I purchased at the dollar tree put the all sentiment in the middle. Topped it off with a beautiful butterfly in the corner. Below are more pictures of my detailed work. Enjoy!!!!









Autumn 12x12 Pre-made Layout



Last but not least the 12x12 Premade layout this is where i
 used up all the scraps from the two previous projects. I still used the same two stickles with these projects as well Xmas Red and Lime Green great fall colors to go with this layout. I used a title wave sticker Giving Thanks and used all the stickers. I cut the mats into 4x4 inches so the pictures can fit perfectly. I also used a border punch for the bottom and top of both pages. Below are more pictures of my detailed work. Enjoy!!!!











Supples:
X-mas Red Stickles
Lime Green Stickles
One 2by3inch tag
Glue dots
Glossy Accents

My ATC Card





 


This ATC Card was a joy to make I love making these showing my talent is what makes me happy. This card shows a lot about me a little color, shabby chic, and detailed. I used a standard ATC card
covered it with some beautiful Autumn Paper, then I used a orange Prima flower on the right and put silver stickles on the leaves just to bring out the flower. Then I used some scraps that
I received in a swap a year ago just to bring this to life.
Hope you like it.



 
                                    HALLOWEEN TAG



 
So I decided to do this beautiful tag I do say so myself.
I used a large size tag so that I could use all the embellishments. I used a sticker in the front that said Trick or Treat which is in what color? That is right purple!!! so I found the little flowers at A.C. Moore when they were having there going out of business sale. What a haul that one was 70%off in the whole store.
I was in heaven, Hope you ladies like my tag.
