Match Boxes For Swap on

I want to share some altered match boxes that I have done for a swap that I am participating in on These are my first matchboxes and had an awesome time making them for my swap partners and hope that they like them.

First this is the double matchbox that I made for my partner.

First I painted the box gray and then put crackle medium on it and the painted it green. Then I covered it with paper from Life's Journey from K & Co.  then put some bling on the top with some flowers  from I am Roses. On both  sides of the box I put bling with more flowers and made some prima look alike candy and then placed flowers on top of them.. The flowers were given to me by Nichole(minialbumscrapper)...

Second here is my altered single matchbox....

        The second box I covered with music paper from the Life's Journey K & Co. and on the sides I used some lace that I got in a RAK from Kelly(walkelmol) it is peach and I place off white flat black pearls along the top of the lace. On the top I fussy cut some flowers from the same K & Co. paper which I put on some pop dots and placed some pink Prima Say it with Pearls on the top.

I Am Crafting....

I started this blog to share my creations and have not beeen doing very well at that. I have been scrapping & altering for the last six months and I am finally going to share some of my creations with the blog world....(I know about time). I am a member of and joined several of their swaps and would like to share with you what I created for them...

First I was in an ATC swap and these are my first ever ATC cards the criteria for the swap was it had to have green on the card

The ATC was made out of light weight chip board and coverd with papere from DCWV Whimsy collection, the image of the girl was found on the internet I cut her out and pasted her to the card put stickles on her shawl. The flowers are from I am Roses they were a gift from Nichole..and the bead trim on the bottom is from HL.

The second swap was a dress form swap and this is what I created for my partner.....

My dress form for swapI used a template of a dress form I found on the interenet....used a photo mat and covered in the domestic goddess paper by DCWV, fussy cut the lady and placed her on pop dots....added the black flowers that I cut from some lace and made the skirt of the dress form with black lace.
