Paper Crafting Projects


Writing Desk

I’ve altered this Kaiser Craft Writing Desk to function more as a wood storage chest.  It’s large and is a great size for storing keepsakes.  I first painted it with acrylic chocolate brown paint and then covered it with Moxie “Spring Has Sprung” papers.  I added lace, burlap, eyelets with lacing, sewing, flowers, metal painted corners, and pearls for decoration. The little girl stamp is a LaBlanche.










Romantic Card

This card features some new Pion Design 6″ papers along with one of their vintage photos.  I especially love the Tim Holtz “Distressed Doily” On The Edge die which I used to make a large tag.




Mini Album

This mini chipboard album measures about 5″ X 6.5″ and was painted with beige acrylic paint before decorating.  I’m participating in the Wild Orchid Crafts Week 45 “Bingo” Challenge with this project since I used lots of beautiful Wild Orchid Crafts flowers on this album as well as some of their “Cameo Beige” seam binding.  The papers and prints are all from Pion Design.   Also contained are lace, pearls, charms, buttons, eyelets with lacing, sewing, and various stamps,  punches,  and dies.
