Altered project:

Here is my altered project that was featured on Kates blog this week…

Guest Blogger πŸ™‚ ..7 Gypsies Vintage Receipt Holder.

Can’t believe February is here already, but we are kicking it off with a great start, a super project by our guest blogger, the gorgeous Felicia from Scrapzville.
Felicia will be teaching a workshop at our CHA Release party on the 15/16 March so for those who aren’t familiar with her work you will get a sneak peak at her creative mind :-)
Hi, its Felicia here from Scrapzville, doing a little guest blogging today.
Once upon a time, the lovely Kate said β€œWhat would you do with this?” and handed me the 7 Gypsies Vintage receipt holder…..
I love anything from 7 Gypsies, so I was delighted with this challenge!
She also gave me some mini file folders,
so off I went to make something lovely and creative ( You should have seen the mess in my craft room when I was finished!)
I decided to make a birthday calendar – there are only ten compartments on the holder and since there are twelve months I had to double up a couple of times, but i’m really pleased with how it turned out!
I used odds and ends from my scrap box, covered the back of the receipt holder first and then started work on the file folders.
(Prepare yourselves for photo overload..!)
I used one little folder for each month and then listed all of my friends and family’s birthdays in it. So, now I have no excuse for forgetting anyone!
As you can see March & April and August & September had to share a compartment –
I used the Sizzix Mini clock key & Pocket watch die to make this watch. I cut it from Kraft paper, added someblack dabber, UTEE , some Tim Holtz Ideaology and a chain. This was a really good project for using up that stash!
I’m loving this new  β€Flora” die from Sizzix Bigz collection  -, it makes beautiful flowers. I cut two the same size, scrunched them up and added a centre. I put UTEE on the leaves and then cracked them to add some texture. This is the middle size which is about 3β€³ across.
and this is the smaller one, which measures 1 1/2β€³ across:
If you fancy creating something similar, Here are the links to shop for the products I used
Thank you Kate for letting me play!!
Love it !!!
Thanks a mill Felicia for sharing your creativity with us
