Mini's galore...

Hello! I hope this post finds everyone well and being creative! I unfortunately haven't had much time for being creative with a move, a car accident and major work changes BUT I was able to squeeze in three projects for KARLAS001! We did a May challenge where we had to use at least or all of the following products; Bona's trim, ButterflyKisses Flowers, Pleaded Trim, Cynthialoowho Mesh Bling and Rosanne's Rosette Trim. These items were to be used on three little projects created for the design team member who we were given. It was a fun challenge to use all the products, which isn't hard since all of KARLAS001 products are awesome and we had a mission to make prettiness for someone else!

Juliana, iluvvintagescrap on YouTube had me opening happy mail from Juliana by clicking here and watch her video of the things she made me by clicking here, super gorgeous shabbiness!

I had the pleasure of creating for Jo, paperdrama on YouTube! I created a mini bird album and altered a mini box and bird house! I had so much fun altering and making the mini bird album come to life.

I used one of my favorite Prima lines from last year, Printery! I painted, used molding paste and mod podged which was a ton of fun getting a little messy! For more detail on how I created each of the projects watch the below video and see pictures.

I'm about half way unpacked and hope to get to creating again! I hope you all have a great day!

Card: Prima Printery: paper, butterfly and flocked rub on.  The fence is stamped using clear embossing powder, it is a Prima Printer stamp. I then distressed the edges and used Frayed Burlap and Forrest Moss distress ink to give the card color.

I got this mini bird house at one of the local Dollar Tree stores.
And here is what I came up with! I mod podged down the paper, distressed stained with Walnut Stain the peg and base. I also stamped the green vines. KARLAS001 products used: White Fancy Trim, Green Leaf Trim, Mini Crystal ButterflyKisses Flowers, Small White Bird (I alcohol inked it), White Mulberry Flower (I alcohol inked it), Green Cynthialoowho Mesh Bling and Pearl Spray.

With the stamped butterflies and vines I thought the 3D MyButterflyKisses Flower was a nice touch.

For the roof I used KARLAS001 Brown Pleaded Trim. I thought it gave a nice shingle effect! I added a Medium Bird that I alcohol inked. The vine and butterfly are stamped on.
This mini box is from the same Dollar Tree store.  The circle pattern was added on with molding paste using a circle punchanella.
"Love Wish Dream" mini box. Stamp is Tim Holtz. I painted the box with a paint dauber,  Juniper and then painted over the circles with Silver. Prima Printer embellishments: flowers in lower left, tile in upper left and bling flourish in lower right. KARLAS001 products used: Black Pearl Sprays, Brown Mini Crystal ButterflyKisses Flower.

Trim around entire box is KARLAS001 Organza/Satin Trim.
On all four sides of the box Prima Printery design paper, flower and KARLAS001 Brown Mini Crystal Butterfly Flower.
Charm made with Prima Printery embellishments and Jo's Shabby Crystals.
This mini album was so fun to make, using many of the Rosanne Rosette Trim. I had a vision in my head of using the Sizzix Dove die (Item #657361) and I have to say it turned out super cute! :) KARLAS001 products used: Wheat Spray and 3D ButterflyKisses Flower. 
I love the two tone Rosanne Rosette Trim! For the wing I used a Pearl/Crystal Spray with a Large Crystal Butterfly.
Here I used these beautiful Black Crystal Sprays with a little bit of the Onyx/Black Cynthialoowho Mesh Bling and a Clear Mini Crystal ButterflyKisses Flower.
Here for the wing I used the Brown Flower & Leave Spray.
Here I die cut out a Tim Holtz Heart with Onyx/Black Cynthialoowho Mesh Bling and placed a clear 3D ButterflyKisses  Flower which I alcohol inked it with Pitch Black.
On the backside of each bird I covered with Prima Printery paper and embellished the tails. Here I used Prima Printery flowers with some Pearl Sprays and Rina BAAALING as flower centers!
Here I used the White Mini Flat Back Pearl Trim, some yellow/gold Leaf Trim, Large and Mini Pearl Flower Trim and a Prima Printery flower. I really like this one!
This one I used some white Bona Trim but I stained the trim with Antique Linen Stain, I then layered the Champaign Cynthialoowho Mesh Bling.
With this bird I used Brown Fancy Trim to create a nest, added a few wheat sprays and a Bona Flower.
A simple back with Prima Printery paper and my signature stamp :)
