Altered Birdhouses

We just had a birdhouse mingle challenge in the Paper Imagery Designs group that I'm in. We had to alter birdhouses, I chose to do 3 of them and these are the ones I came up with. This was my first time altering anything and am pretty proud of how they came out. I will be mailing these to 3 different new owners and i have received 3 from other members too. They started as just a plain wooden birdhouse about 4" tall. We had to use one of their images on each birdhouse. Check out their website at

Card made with the new Cuttlebug Embossing Folder borders

I made this card for a friend of mine using the new cuttlebug embossing border folders. I used White brilliance and rubbed it over the embossed area and added flat pearls to the flowers. I actually followed a layout from another blog and with Jackies permission I have added it to my blog to share with everyone. You can check out Jackies awesome blog at

I then added a 3d paper tole layered flower to the center. I added a butterfly which I made with a peel off sticker on cardstock and cut out. Also added peel off corners, borders and dots.
