Altered Cigar Box Swap

Hello everyone I was in a cigar box swap over on Kraftie Kre8ations on FB. So we had to have partners and mine was Charmagne Rivera and pink was her color and we also had a choice of either vintage or Shabby Chic so below you will see various pinks in this project and a lot of handmade things . Hope you love all the flowers and the color combination I put together.

 
The box was bought at Michaels for $4.99 plus a %50 off coupon sale, sale , coupon.  I used gesso to over the box first then I applied two coats of Berry Wine acrylic paint I got at A.C. Moore for .89 cents. All the flowers I used came from Prima these were old packs I got from Michaels when they were having a sale. I also bought the letter C a small one to apply to the top of the box and applied a thin coat of pink acrylic paint and pulled some of the paint off to make it look aged. The small butter fly came from a small Jolee pack I got at a yard sale.
 
 
I got the charm bed cage from Michaels also in the $1.50 bin with a lot of the  materials I used for this project. The skirt came from the good will I paid $1.00 for 4 yards.
 

 
I used K and Company Julianne Specialty Paper for this project I loved the colors and it went with this Shabby Chic look I wanted in this project. The inside was layered , inked, and cut to fix the box. Bought the pearl flower last year at the CKC convention dollar booth.

 
Inside of the box was cut , layered, and ink with the K and Company  cardstock.  I used a old strip of lace and inked it with brown coffee ink from close to my heart. I think I got the lace form one of the girls in our Facebook online group. Thinking Cheri gave it to me and I used pearls in the lace and flowers.


 
Ok loaded with tags and handmade envelopes in the top of the box.



  I made tags and envelopes with the scrap paper I used for the  box.  As you see I stamped each card with a friends saying and a mothers stamp was used on the bigger tag.


 
Tags turned over on the other side. Used a lot of flowers, charms and pearls.

 
Handmade envelopes made from the scraps I used on the box. Again lots of pearls and flowers.




                           

 


                                                                 
  I hope you enjoyed my Altered Cigar Box!! I had fun making it.

Welcome to MMDesi9ns!
 

 
Hello kraftie ladies and gents!!!!  I am Meka and welcome to my blog. The time has finally come to do the bunny hop. The Kraftie Kea8tions Blog Hop is here!

 Believe me you won't want to miss any of the beautiful creations these ladies have come up with.  Being a part of this Kraftie Kre8ations Adventure from facebook to the blog and participating in this hop has been nothing but a joy and I'm glad to be here.  

My first projects for this hop are 2 ATC cards and 2 picture frames showing  a little about who I am as an artist. Welcome and enjoy. 
 
What is your scrapbook "Krytonite"?
 
Well I really don't have anything I wouldn't try once. I have just opened up a new horizon to start doing new exciting art like altering all kinds of things. I love the color purple so I try to buy everything and anything around purple, even if it is a purple
 cardstock and printed paper, etc. You understand anything purple!!!!
 
                                                              
Artist Trading Card
 
 
 
 Artist Trading Card #2
 
 
 
  What do you listen to or watch while you scrap and Why?
 
     Well I like a little R and B and Pop , Like Usher, Mary J Blidge, Maroon 5, One Republic. I love all kinds of music and anyone that knows me knows I love playing music when I'm crafting  and making my masterpieces.
                                                      
 
New Project of Choice
 
 
 

 Project of Choice #2
 
 
How do you jump start your creatively when you find that it is missing?
 
Call up my bestie Connie Gomez at 7:30am with a cup of coffee cut on the laptop and get ready to discuss the next challenges, altered projects, and swaps that she Will be having me into before the year starts. 
At what time of day are you most creative, or do you  prefer to create?
  I'm most creative at about 4am in the morning. I know most people are a sleep but to me it's quiet. That time for me in the morning is great and my mind gets into creative mode.
 
 
 
What is your favorite techniques to use right now and why?  
Well my techniques are my favorite cardboard mini albums and painting anything wooden with Gesso and Mod Podge. Using Bling, stickles, flowers, butterfies, fibers, and vintage.
 
 
   Old Projects


                              
What are some tried and true techniques you love to use?
        Metal embellishments are the new wave these days and I am into
          painting boxes, tins, and premade pages. As you see in some of my
projects below there's a lot of me in them.
