Quick way to jazz up a gift

I just wanted to share a quick way to jazz up a gift.  I put a band of paper around a jewelry box and then added an accordion flower and a button to complete the look.  Quick, simple and cute.  I used Basic Grey's Piccadilly line for this.

Altered Canvas for a nursery

A friend was looking for some nursery decoration and asked for advice.  I offered up the suggestion of an altered canvas and offered to make one for her.  She is also Jewish and like the idea of using the prayer,  Sh'ma Yisrael, that I used on this previous canvas since her son will eventually need to learn Hebrew.  She didn't really have a theme for the nursery, but was using orange, blue and grey as the colors.  I thought Basic Grey's Picadilly line fit perfectly.  I also used a healthy portion of Tim Holtz Vintage Photo Distress Ink, Tattered Leather Glimmer Mist, and Pewter Zing Embossing Powder.

One day I will actually make something for myself.

Just wanted to share a few more gift pages with you.  I have two more items that I need to make for other people and then I fully plan to actually get to scrapbooking photos of my adorable little man.  It is shameful that he is 6 months old and I've only scrapbooked 1 photo of him.  Here's a quick photo of him before the gift layouts.

For this layout I used the Basic Grey Wisteria line.

 This one I used another Basic Gray line, but for the life of me right now I can't think of it and I am too lazy to go look at the moment.

 For both of these I used old Page Maps Sketches for inspiration.  Thanks for stopping by today!  I hope you enjoyed what you saw here.
