Matchbox Vanity

I’ve always been fascinated by miniatures. The other day I stumbled upon a website of an artist who creates amazing miniature foods. It looks so real it’s unbelievable. If you want to check it out here’s the link. This has inspired me to create a miniature vanity, my style, meaning paper crafting and paper engineering vintage style. I created the vanity from 10 matchboxes stacked up together in two stacks. I first inked all the edges and covered the front with patterned paper. I used The Station collection from MME.Once all the matchboxes were glued together I covered all sides with chipboard so the vanity will be stronger and more real looking. I covered the chipboard with the same patterned papers. For the embellishments on the top I used craft supplies that I converted into different things that are usually found on a vanity. The photo frames are bezels used to create pendants and jewelry. I cut off the ring of the pendant and turned it into a frame …

There Is No Place Like Home – House Projects

“Storms make trees take deeper roots” Dolly Parton This quote speaks to me so loudly. In the last four weeks this is exactly how I feel. Those out there who fire rockets and want us destroyed just make me more determined! This is my home, it’s the only place we have in the world. It’s my family’s and my friends’ homes and we are here to stay.While thinking and pondering about this I realized I made a lot of house theme projects during the years probably because this subject is important to me. I wanted to share these projects with you because I know this subject speaks to you too. This is a layout I created with a photo of my mom and aunt when they were little girls. I created a background with bright colors as a childlike scene with flowers and a house. Happy, fun and nostalgic page. My first video tutorial more then a year ago. Time flies …
