Happy Monday! Today, we have some projects to share with you from our Altered Project Designers. We have an adorable Thankful project, a fun Too Cute To Spook project, and a couple of pretty Kiss Me projects!
Fall Altered Wooden Owl, by Jennifer Edwardson.
I found this cute little wooden owl in a clearance bin shortly after Thanksgiving and as cute as I thought he was, I knew I could make him cuter :)
I took the bottom banner off and got out my tracing paper. I traced every piece on him (yes this one took some time) and then chose my patterns. Once I had all the pieces cut and the edges sanded, I started putting him back together with some of my faves from the Thankful collection.
I loved the chip icons and alpha stickers for my title and thought the chip house fit in perfectly.
I added some wooden buttons for his eyes and folded some designer tape to create some funky eyebrows too. I am so happy that I brought hime home and really made him mine.
Thankful: Turkey Tracks, Homey, Burlap, Our Spot, Alpha + Bits Stickers, Just Write Journaling Stickers, Chipboard Icons; Designer Tape: Pony Dot; Wood Buttons: Checkers
Halloween Altered Tray, by Jennifer Edwardson.
My kids absolutely LOVE Halloween. It is only 2nd to Christmas in our house. Okay, maybe their birthday's too. Nonetheless, they LOVE Halloween. It is always a big production and the costumes choosingis HUGE, especially for Alexander.
He was adamant that he got to be something scary this year (2010). I had a hard time with it as he was only 5 but Dracula was my compromise and he LOVED it. Emma wanted to be a rider – thanks goodness we had most of her costume so I got a toddler pony costume, did a little cutting and stitching and she was good to go.
Documenting this particular Halloween in a special way was important to me as it was the only year that Emma & Alex would be in the same school together. This tray was the perfect way to capture these memories for me as I can have it out in my office all year and then add it to our Halloween décor each October too.
The stickers and cute cuts worked beautifully to embellish (I love the bats in the corner) and I even got some designer tape in there as the spiders web.

“Love Never Fails” altered canvas, by Wendy Antenucci.
I've had this song in my head for awhile now from Bethel Church; one night while the words were running through my mind a connection was made with what was being said and the beautiful Kiss Me Collection that had just arrived at my house and so my canvas was born. I placed all of my words on the canvas and actually stared at my project for a few days trying to figure out what was needed. My first addition was my button heart which combined all the colors of the canvas, I then added the various Cute Cuts and some f the Just Write stickers that I cut out and I finished my canvas with the Punch Chevron Designer tape on the edges.

“Sugar and Spice” altered frame, by Wendy Antenucci.
I just met my new little niece and she is so sweet and tiny so this frame is for her room because she is all sugar and spice! I used my Cricut Word Collage to cut the saying from white cardstock. I then placed some paper and designer tape behind the openings. I used the punch chevron designer tape to frame the saying and added some cute cuts, chipboard pieces and stickers to finish decorating my frame.
