All Things Altered Blog Hop - March 23-24

Welcome to the "All Things Altered" Blog Hop, I am so excited to be hosting my first hop. It took me forever to decide on what I wanted to alter but when I found it, inspiration happen.... but I first want to thank you for coming to do the hop with us and the 13 designers that are apart of the hop. Here is the list of the designers that are participating in the hop, I hope you have fun to our blogs, get inspired and start looking around you to find something fun to alter.
Here is our list of talented and gifted designers and your first stop on the hop will be with Pinky.

Now for my project: I bought this cabinet at our local Goodwill Store for 2.99. It is a pretty nice cabinet but as soon as I seen it I knew exactly what I wanted to make with it. "Instant" inspiration, don't you love that when it happens.
The first picture shows you the front of the cabinet but here are a few close ups. I love roly poly flowers and use them on so many projects because they are so simple to make. All you need to do is punch out a 2" circle, using your scissors and cut a spiral shape with your circle. Now wrap the outside edge around a pair of tweezers to you get it to the middle, pull the spiral of the tweezers, allow it to release itself a bit and glue to the center with tacky glue. My little Making Memories bottle is filled with Glossy Accent, alcohol ink and for whatever reason it didn't set up so the just moves around freely in the bottle which is really pretty cool. On the bottom left corner I made more of fun roly poly flowers along with some Jolee's flowers that I sprayed with Perfect Pearls sprays. I love to fussy cut so my lady is fussy cut out and place on top of a doily that I also sprayed with Perfect Pearls. I added some Tim Holtz metals, ribbons, keys, etc to give my box characterHere is the inside of my cabinet before I did the inside of it
This is the inside of the cabinet. Can you guess what I made my cabinet into. I made us a Coffee Table Storage Box for our remotes and placed a photo album in it using a 7Gypsies album in it.Here is one side of the box. I did all 4 sides in the same paper and ribbons
Here is the other side of my storage box, I love the Pigs Fly die cut. I also used the sentiments from one of the sheets of paper and double matted them after I distressed them my Tim Holtz distress tool and tiny attacher. My Storage Box is made completely with the Graphic 45 Olde Curiosity Shoppe Collection is the inside of the box, places for our remote controls and a family album
. The album is from 7Gypsies and is covered with the Graphic 45 Olde Curiosity Shoppe along with more roly poly flowers, die cuts, and metals.

The first designer is the very talented Pinky form Much Ado About Nothing.

  34. VERY inspiring Blog Hop! Wow the talented friends you have! I love your idea to created a storage box out of the great find and you did and amazing job. I like that you put "feet" on it so now it lays horizontal instead of hanging on a wall! You certainly can think outside the box. I forgot to mention on a number of blogs that I now follow them through google, but my name is buckskinbelle with google. Thanks for a great hop and the opportunity to win some great items, but seriously I already feel like a winner with the great information on new techniques and inspiration I got today!!!

  54. Pam, this is so gorgeous. I love how you decorated the cabinet, and the inside is just as pretty. That is a great idea how to hide the remotes, and show off such a beautiful piece at the same time. I have finished the blog hop and became a follower, if I wasn't one already. I cannot tell you how much inspiration I have received from this. Everyone is so talented and just absolutely awesome. Thanks for including me. I had a fabulous time, and hopefully made some new artsy friends.
