Saturday Step by Step: Altered Shabby Keys

Hello! How are things in your part of the world on this wonderful day? All is well here. I'm missing my son who is away at university. He has spring break in two weeks and I'll be so excited to see him.

In the meantime I've been a busy bee in my craft room. I'm back with my third post for this week!  

I have the privilege of hosting the Saturday Step by Step at the Frilly and Funkie Blog today! Just click on the blog link for a complete tutorial for these altered shabby keys. Below you'll find a few additional photos.     

Thanks so much for joining me! I hope you're having a fun filled weekend with the people you love!

'Layer it Up' Challenge at Frilly and Funkie!

Hello and a warm welcome to my crafty friends! Are you ready for spring? I'm beyond ready to put winter behind me, though it seems the weather doesn't plan to cooperate. I guess it's time to make our own sunshine!

I have the honor of hosting our new challenge at the Frilly and Funkie Blog. Our theme for the next two weeks is 'Layer it Up'. Let's add dimension this time around. Simply create any type of vintage or shabby chic project featuring multiple layers.

At the end of the challenge the team will choose their top four picks. Our first place winner will be invited to join us in a Guest DT spot at the Frilly and Funkie Blog. Three additional talented participants will receive badges to display on their blogs. Everyone who enters and adheres to the challenge guidelines will be entered into a drawing to win a $25 spending spree at The Funkie Junkie Boutique! For entry specifics just click on the blog link above.

With February coming to a close I'm turning my focus to Easter and some upcoming events. My project this week is a card for a sweet little girl who will receive her First Communion this spring.

As always, the base papers are distressed, layered, and stitched. The roses are handcrafted using Tim Holtz Tattered Florals dies and a Spellbinders Large Rose die.  

The vintage image is fussy cut from a collage sheet. I apologize for not knowing the creator of the image. It's something that's been in my stash for a long time and I can't remember where I got it. 

The lacy layers tucked into the roses are die cut with the Spellbinders Triple Tear die. 

Thanks so much for visiting with me. I send wishes for an amazing day filled with laughter and creativity!
