Altered Coasters

Hello dear sweet friends - Happy happy Tuesday!!  

This week's challenge #41 at Tuesday Alchemy is "Anything but a Card".  Our design team has some great inspiration and you can peek at all their projects on their personal blogs.  Our amazing sponsors this week are:


I found some old ceramic coasters at a thrift store a long time ago.  Thought this would be a great project for this weeks challenge and the perfect time to turn them into something new.  

Altered Coasters

All I did was cover the coasters in various cardstocks, stamped swirly images around the edges and fun sayings in the middle of each.  They were all sealed for extra protection.

Old Coasters
It's a quick and easy project plus a dear friend of mine loves them and wants them for her office at work.  Makes me happy they have found a new happy home.  So please jump in and join us this week and can't wait to see what you create.

Have a blessed week!
Hugs and smiles

  3. These are fantastic, Laine! What a great idea. Love the way you did the swirl stamps around the edges. Makes a fab border.

  4. Fabulous Laine - so pretty. Did you use modge podge?

    1. Yes I did Karon. I go through a lot of it.



  5. Wow Laine! I love the transformation! Your friend is going to love them! When it already photographs so well, I know they look 10xs better in person. :)

  6. I think your coasters are beautiful, Laine. Thank you for your lovely comments on my blog and I have now joined your lovely blog too. I am thankful to say I really don't need any more crafty stash right now but am happy to display your candy on my blog. Vee xx

  7. Hi lainey, I've just spent about twenty minutes looking through all your posts and past posts about your life. The reason it touched me so much is firstly - you are a strong person and never gives up, no matter how far down deep we go into this black hole there's always away out towards the light. Also your life story mirrors my life so much . I've been of work since last December due to unbearable pain in my leg and they've only just figured out what it might be so now I'm awaiting an MRI scan , I've lost my friends, social life and my financial status is in tatters. It's been hell but finding blog land and doing crafting has been a godsend to me and I'm sure many others out there! It's a great therapy and there is also some lovely people out there. You've been an inspiration to me and your work is stunning. You are very talented and believe me sweetheart there is always only one way up , never down back into that dark hole. I'm glad everything is starting to get better for you. My thoughts are with you and I'm here if you ever just need a chat. Lovely coasters by the way , I love how you've altered them. They look fab! Much love . Sharon xxxxx

Cinderella goes Camo

Hello my dear sweet friends -

I hope this finds you doing well.  It's been a while since I have been able to post and yet I have been able to get quite a few loose ends tied up.  I ended up making a quick trip to California to get the rest of personal stuff out of storage.  I am no longer scattered across three states and I can't even begin to express how wonderful that feels.  It will take me some time to get all my craft stuff set up and organized again but it looks like I will be able to really get on the ground running again.  It was a group effort and my sisters and brother in law were amazing and so incredibly helpful.  

A few days before the trip I received a phone call (out of the blue) from a dear friend I worked with at the Police Department in California 20 years ago.  It was great hearing from him and we have been having fun getting caught up on things. My my, so many new and exciting changes.  I am still working on getting my health back on track and doctors say I a…

Orchis Last Enchanter - Morgan's Art World

Happy Monday Sweet Friends
My goodness it's the final day of October and this year is almost over.  Time passes way to quickly.
Today I am sharing my Design Team Card for the Classic Design Team Challenge that is now underway through November 27th.  Our sponsor this month is the talented artist Morgan Fitzsimmon owner of Morgan's Art World on Facebook.

The image I am using is called "Orchis Last Enchanter."  I think she's a gorgeous image and to be quite honest I was intimidated to color her.  I desperately wanted to do her justice.  It took several attempts at coloring her before I was pretty happy with the results.  She's really a great image to work with and she's actually one of my most favorite digi's.   I made some flowers with one of my flower die cuts.  I absolutely love these flowers and will be making many more in the future.
