Little Robin Redbreast

Hi all, i'm back with a card this time, well i've got no Easter eggs to eat so to take my mind off that i'm crafting! I know it's Easter but i've made a Christmas card today using recycled Christmas cracker cut with my Spellbinders and a diecut chipboard robin. Stuck these on the card and then ran it through my Bigshot using one of my Crafters Companion embossing folders. I was pleasantly surprised with the result.

Altered DVD Storage Unit & Cases

Good morning everyone and Happy Easter! I hope you are not stuffing your faces with chocolate eggs cos' i will be jealous as i haven't got any, boo! hoo!
******************
I have something different to share with you all today.
I have altered an old DVD storage unit and made it into a crafty storage for my pens, inks and wooden rubber stamps.
This is the unit before altering.

Here i have adhered some pretty
pink Dovecraft paper and distressed with paint.

Here is a close up of the paper.
I have diecut a few pieces using my Magnolia Doohickey 'Old Swedish Lace' die and added some sequin trim.

The next thing i did was to stamp all over the top and sides with my Prima 'Botanical' stamp using Sepia ink.
Now i cut some paper to fit the dvd cases and stamped the same image all over and inserted them into the cases making them look much prettier i think.


And the finished look! I will probably change things around a few times until i'm happy with it.
