Well Hello There!
It's once again time for Makeover Monday! :)
I was perusing the $ section of a local store last week and found something that stopped me in my tracks.
I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it.
That's not always the case, ya know.
Most of the time, I grab something thinking, "I could use this for something someday." As a result, I have a tote of "alterable" items in the garage (much to my hubby's dismay). ;-)
Anywho...sorry for the sidetrack there.
Here's what I found:
A pretty journal for $1.00. Not too bad, eh?
I looked at this item for $1.00, and said "Oooh...that looks like a perfect match for Lavendar Lace (SU color)!" I knew exactly what I could add to it...something new, something so easy...to make it even BETTAH!!! I promptly put it in my cart and brought it home.
It surely WAS a perfect match - awesome! So, I brought out a couple new items from the Occasions Mini, and....
Oh yeah, babey. FIVE butterflies out of one little embosslit. LOVE IT! Seriously. Awesome!!!
Embosslit: a little Sizzix (SU) die that cuts out AND embosses the item!! Go ahead, click on the pic and you'll see the embossing (raised decorative areas) even better!
I decided that wasn't enough, so I added the miniature rhinestones from the Eggcellent Eggs kit to give it a bit of somethin' somethin'. :)
It took me less than...oh...10 minutes. Maybe even 5.
I'll admit, to the ribbon-loving queen that I am....it DOES need a matching lavendar ribbon along the LH side. It almost pains me to post it without one, lol! However, I don't have any, and I did try a few others (white), but it just didn't seem right. I'll keep looking....oh, and I'll probably make a matching pen. :)
I was just so excited about my find, that I wanted to show you asap! :)
Well, what do you think?
