Cuttin' Up Saturdays with Crafty Secrets

This week we are being sponsored by Crafty Secrets - specialists in all things vintage in my opinion :)

The Cuttin' Up team has decided to do altered items for this edition and I am very excited about what I came up with.

My husband has to go to England and Paris on a business trip coming up and has asked me to go along. By using all of our combined airline points, I was able to book a flight!!! I am so excited. We are going from October 12-24th, but I will have posts going so fear not! I will not leave you without inspiration.

Well, recently we have gotten into making little videos - you know, tutorials and what not - and we are planning on making a DVD of our trip to Europe. It is my first time to Paris and I am oh so excited. Feel free to leave me comments on "must do" activities! So, I altered this blank DVD case to put our DVD in when we return! Notice the top of the trunk says "Paris" :)

I "mod-podged" the DVD case, mod-podged on the K&Co.™ background paper (this was my first time using Mod-Podge™ - love that stuff!) and Crafty Secrets™ items. I embossed the "Post Card" with the Window Panes Emboss Folder™. Then I cut the sentiment from Graphically Speaking™ out of Core'dinations™ paper and pop-dotted it. I added some buttons and voila!

Cartridge/Sentiment: Graphically Speaking™
Embossing: Oh My Crafts Exclusive: Window Panes™ (4 embossing folders on sale for $4.99 - That's why I bought them!)
Stamping: My Pink Stamper's Family and Friends™ set (the word "memories" stamped on the trunk)
Ink: VersaMark™ Neptune
Paper: K&Co.™, Core'dinations™

Don't forget to play along in our Be Inspired #101 Nostalgia challenge this week where you could win a prize package from Crafty Secrets!

I love your artwork on this one! Most people only do vintage in "dull" colors (form what I've seen anyway.) I think it's great that you used more vibrant colors and it worked wonderfully. But...I'm so jealous that you are going to Europe!
