Our Vintage Affair Design Team March Altered Kitchen Item

Well hello everyone!! For our March altered item challenge over at Our Vintage Affair we had to do something for the kitchen. So after many ideas I finally decided to do a note pad come sign for the kitchen. I have used Graphic 45 Domestic Goddess for the paper and for the Pot and the Chicken I have used From My Kitchen Cricut cartridge which is fast becoming a total fav of mine. I also used the Storybook cartridge for the lettering. On the white pad I inked all the edges of the whole pad with Vintage Photo Distress ink and then I used a hinge clip to hold it to the board and then to cover that I used a small Prima rose. I also put those roses in several other places and I thought they just completed my project. The embellishments of the mixing spoons, the cookie jar and the red chilli are kitchen embellishments I have had for simply ages and I got to use them today. The cream crocheted lace is from my stash again I have had it for ages and then put some flatback pearls on top of the lace. I used butchers twine for the hanger and just inked the twine with Vintage Photo as well.





I hope you have enjoyed taking a look at my altered 'kitchen' item for this months challenge over at Our Vintage Affair and that you take part . The winner of the challenge will win the whole set of 6 papers from the newest 3ndypapir collection "Sweetheart". And - a spot of Guest Designer for the upcoming challenge! I would love to see what you make. so why don't you join in. Okay that is it until next time.
In the meantime. . . .
Walk about your day with beauty.

This is just gorgeous Michelle, I think I'm gonna have to scraplift it to make one for my sister. She has a country-style kitchen so I think she'll love a sign like this :)
