Today, I have a really…really fun project to share with you. As of late, I have been really enjoying making altered items. It allows the imagination to just run free with all possibilities. For me it’s also a good way to use projects/items that I have been hoarding too! My project today, is using Spring Lilacs Paper Pad , Spring Lilacs and Vintage Ticket stamp sets. Here is a look at today’s project.
This framed shadow box was created using a frame that I found at Micheal’s and the bottom of a jewelry box. The frame has been painted several times with a cream color paint. Once dried, I dabbed gold paint on just the raised part of the flourishes. I then cut to fit, pieces of the Lilac designer paper and glued using a stylus, to make sure the corners were in securely.
I stamped the ticket from the Vintage Ticket stamp set and placed bird cage charm over it. The bird has been colored with colored with watercolor pencils and then i preformed some fussy cutting around the entire image. I then place the bird in, mounted on 2 really thick foam tabs. Assembly from there was easy and fun.
I love the way the bird sits inside, with the image of another one by it side!! Did you see the feathers? Those are actual feathers from our Lady Gouldian Finches. She is molting and so gathering a few for my project was rather effortless!! :)”

“Hi everyone, Marzena here, so glad to can inspire you with my first card for IBS!
I decided to make a Valentines card without red color. I guess this card can be used for any occasion for your love.
I used the beautiful lilac and small butterflies from Spring Lilacs stamp set . All the card is based on the beautiful paper from Spring Lilacs paper pad the sentiment is made with I Love You Because stamp set.
Hope you enjoy my card and will try to make some great projects with the Lilacs collection as well 🙂
