First up is this gorgeous Steampunk Spells treasure box by Rebecca Morris.This is such a clever piece of altered art that would make an amazing gift! The whimsical spirit of Steampunk Spells comes to life in this breathtaking creation! All the pretty fussy cut elements and metal embellishments add sophistication and charm to this fun creation! Here is what Rebecca had to say about it!

"I am very happy to share with you my latest project, this project is a converted book, the book has been converted to what still looks like a book but it is actually a treasure box, shhhhhh. I picked up a very old book from my local second hand bookstore, it had one of those hard green vinyl covers, with gold trimming, it was $2 and with stinky old paper - PERFECT!."

Next up is this adorable Little Darlings card by Lyudmila Kruchinina. This is the perfect card for a new baby! The pretty paper layers, delicate stitching and adorable pinwheel give this card such a lovable look. Soft pastel colors only add to the charm of this sweet card. It's a true inspiration!

Here we have another delightful creation from our Ning gallery. This is a breathtaking French Country altered journal by Theresa Pearson. This is such a fun idea! Altered journals are enjoyable and easy to make and they also make perfect gifts! We love how Theresa layered the pretty French Country papers and added Chipboard Die Cuts to give this journal even more rustic charm. The bright inked borders and cute ribbon embellishments only add to its elegant allure. It's simply stunning!

Fabulous fussy cut elements and pretty paper distressing only add to the fanciful look of this fun book mark. The playful spirit of Olde Curiosity Shoppe comes to life in this superb creation!

Last but not least is this exquisite Ladies' Diary trinket box by Andrew Roberts. This elegant creation is overflowing with beauty as fussy cut characters and flowers add depth and dimension. We love how Andrew altered the Graphic 45 Metal Butterflies to give them pretty texture. Lace, pearls and flowers only add to the beauty of this gorgeous piece. It looks like a true vintage treasure! This would make a beautiful piece of home decor or a heartwarming gift! It's so pretty!
