Altered Tickets & Swaps

Hello Followers!

I've be volunteering over at Mini Album Scraps as a hostess to a few swaps.  Our newest swap is an Altered Ticket swap.  Sign-ups for the swap are open until the 15th of September.  If you would like to join the site and participate in swaps, which by the way is ALL FREE!!!!, click here, and join the site.

I have also created a video that shows how you can create tickets to alter if you don't have the Tim Holtz ticket die.

I hope you enjoy this little tutorial!!!

Happy Crafting!!!!


  1. Thanks for your great video, I love the voice of your little helper in the background. Great idea to use the Crop-a-dile to make them look like tickets. I recently made some tickets myslef and because it was raining heavily and at night, I didn't fancy going out to to my workshop get a hole punch, so instead I folded the ticket strip up and used my Tim Holtz heavy duty scissors to snip a tiny triangle off each of the four corners, it was super fast too as there were only the four cuts to make. Your idea for a regular ticket swap sounds fun too. Is it still on going and if so is it open to swappers around the world? Could you also please tell me which scoreboard you use, it looks a good and I like the idea of the built in little storage area.
    Warmest best wishes from across the miles in France

Dragon Cricut Cut

This is just a dragon cut that my son David asked me to "make" for him.  It is from the "Designer's Calendar" Cricut cartridge.  I used a piece of 6x6 red cardstock.  It was from The Paper Company's Heritage Color Sheets.  I selected the dragon to cut and then I selected the "fit to page" button on my Cricut Expression to get the biggest cut possible with the size paper that I was using.
*Note:  If you are making a cut using the "fit to page" button that has layers, make sure you note the size so you can set your size dial for the layers so they will fit properly.
Happy Crafting!!!!

Altered Bird Cage

This is one really made me think outside the box.  I wanted to create a 3D item, and this is what I ended up coming up with.

I used the Tim Holtz Alterations Sizzix Bigz Caged Bird Die to create this.  I cut the cage 4 times, the bird once and the wing twice out of medium weight chipboard.  Then I painted the 4 cages on both sides with Rusty Hinge Distress Paint from Tim Holtz and sprayed them with some Sunflower Glimmer Mist by Tattered Angels.
I glued the sides of the cages together with some Scotch Quick Dry Tacky Adhesive and just held them until it was dry and just did that for all 4 sides.  Then I, very gently bent in the tops of the bird cages (I cut off the little bump that is on top of the hanging whole) and used the Scotch glue again to glue them together.  I also used some Tim Holtz jump rings to help hold the tops together until the glue was dry and holding.  Then I use another jump ring through the wholes on the top to hold them together and to attach the swivel clasp to.


Time to Create a Unique View

This is an altered canvas that I created for Diemond Dies' Design Team call.  It was my first big mixed media project and I absolutely love how it turned out!!!!

I got lots of different close up pics.

I just love that clock piece in the corner!

This view finder die is a must have, it was so much fun to use!  I cut it in black chipboard and then again in chipboard covered in white paper.  I then took the squares from the black one that I cut out and put them in the white one and it actually looks like a view finder disc!!

Don't forget the sides of your canvases!

So pretty!

The arrow is pointing to the way to read the words for the title of the canvas, completely unintentional.

Love those butterflies.  I got these in a swap but I know you can find them on Etsy!

Well I hope you enjoyed my pics, if you have any questions please just ask.  As you will see in future posts I did end up making the team.  Yay me!!  It's my very first DT so it has been super exciting!!!!  Dee, the …
