Happy Birthday to the Krazy Crafting Crew (KCC) and Anniversary!

Wanted to say Happy Anniversary to an amazing team that is always putting out Awesome projects.
Hopefully when I get my room together I will be able to be more within the "crew."
Thank you all for all of your hosting and friendships!
This is also an Anniversary card for my husband since 7/7/13 also marks not only the Anniversary of KCC but also 14 years of marriage for me. :) I used all rubons, a few roses and a gel pen to mark the date.
Your Host

CD Case Gift Card Holder

CD Case Gift Card Holder
I decided to make a gift card holder out of this cd case. I figured you could not only put a gift card in there but also a special cd that you make for the person as well if you like.
An accordian album would fit nicely in there with a gift card as well.
This picture was taken while it was still drying. I went to use some of the 3D Lacquer to add a dew drop and when I went to pour I didn't realize I took the WHOLE lid off and a whole bunch of glue went everywhere. The project had been complete minus the dew drop and dried beforehand. I guess that is what I get for last minute additions. :)

(I couldn't tell you all the colors because some of the pieces were made a while back and felt they went along with this project so I added them.)
(Used this on the bottom piece of the cupcake!)
CD Case
Cookie Cutter
Molds (I used Martha Stewart for the cupcake and the bow)
The Robin's Nest Dew Drop
Add mixer to 3D lacquer and dab it on the cd case.
Then add all your pieces you made in molds.
(It's very easy to pour the 3D Crystal Lacquer into a mold and some mixer, doesn't take much, but depending on the depth of the mold you may need to let it dry up for longer than 24 hours)
The heart was cut out with a cookie cutter.
And due to the spillage of the lacquer I had to fill in the heart with a color mixer.
And added a dew drop to the top of the larger heart that was made in a mold.
Thanks for visiting!

Altered CD Case - Sakura Hobby

Altered CD Case

3D Crystal Lacquer: Primary Colors
CD Tin
1. Take the pen and do an overall color (blue).
2. Give it time to dry.
3. Write with the purple lacquer pen "Love is in ..."
4. Draw a heart with a red lacquer pen.
5. Let dry and you are done.
If each color isn't given enough time to dry then they will run into one another.
Afterwards you can put a specially made CD into the tin or even a mini album for your sweetheart!
I think next time I'm going to do an over all color using mixers and then use the 3d lacquer pens. :)
Thank you for stopping by!
