Today we've got some fun an easy altered items for you
to try.  With home decor being so popular in the paper world...
we wanted to share a little inspiration with you all.

Bless Your Heart & Home Wall Hanging 
by Juliana Michaels
Designer tip: I think it is fun to think outside the box when creating altered projects. 
For this wall hanging I used 3 pages from the Apple Cider Mini Album as the base.
 I adhered them together overlapping the middle pumpkin onto the other 2 pumpkins. 
I then embellished it with a variety of stickers, Noteworthy pieces and fussy cut images. 
The little girl, little boy and 4 of the pumpkins are fussy cut from various papers. 
I further embellished them with glitter glue and jewels.
I don't know about you guys, but I can't get enough of Apple Cider!

Jewelry box

 We all have little baskets, boxes or trinkets sitting around that we can alter.
 So much love going on for the new blossoms.

by Romy Veul 
 Designer Note: To decorate the top of my treasure box I used mainly fussy cut and 
sticker flowers that I layered using foam tape. I adhered a trinket and a bee on top 
of them and that's it. You don't need a lot to embellish your altered items.

Thankful Altered Wooden Pumpkins
by Debbie Sherman

 Designer Tip: After painting the 2 wooden pumpkins I adhered patterned paper to them using Modge Podge. I then went over them with another coat of modge podge. After they were dry I overlaped the smaller pumpkin to the larger pumpkin and adhered with a glue gun. I then layer my embellishments by using Foam Squares to pop them up, this allowed me to add more embellishments behind my layers giving my project extra dimension.
