Altered Goodies

I recently went to Target and stocked up on some of the dollar mailboxes. Unfortunately, I have only made one since then. So last night as I looked at the stack of them collecting dust I decided to make another featuring the super adorable The Cat's Pajamas Valentine's Day stamps. The mailbox is covered in "Hey, Sugar" Crate patterned paper. The cupid kitty is stamped with VersaFine Onyx black on Papertrey Ink stampers select. The circles are nestabilities die-cuts as well as the scalloped circle. I also highlighted and colored in the kitty and her details with my Copic markers. Accessories are SU red wide grosgrain ribbon and May Arts ribbon. Other card stock is SU Mustard, Pomegranate, and Kraft. The second project is one of those nugget tins made famous by Nichole Heady. I also used The Cat's Pajamas V-Day images. They work perfectly with the nugget Avery labels. I made a paper slider to adorn the tin with some more of the Crate "Hey, Sugar". I also used my new heart nestabilites die cuts to create a tag to hang from some wide SU chocolate grosgrain ribbon. Well that is all I have to share with you today but I do have some more projects to share with you. Make sure to check back tomorrow.

Have a great weekend.

Hugs,

Ana

These are so cute! It's good to see they've taken care of the issues with the Nestabilities dies. I just love Poochie!
