Alter Box for Calico

Good morning everyone and welcome to you all! Lovely to see you here in my little corner of blogland.

I was happy and excited to be asked to be guest designer once more for Calico Crafts, a wonderful shop with amazing and unusual products for the altered artist.
I decided to alter one of their fantastic book boxes, using some of the new Graphics 45 Steampunk Spells collection.
To see the full project and how I made it, please head over to their BLOG

Hope you will like it and thank you for visiting!

Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
