Altered Items with The Angel Company Paper & CANDY

Isn't it amazing how you can start with a simple wooden item, add some of your favorite paper and you end up with a wonderful gift? We exchange 3D gift items like these at our regional Angel gatherings. It is so exciting to see what people come up with that can be stamped on or covered with paper and magically transformed! I found this little box at the Target Dollar Spot and added TAC's Catelynne paper. I love how our Heidi Swapp florals, Bazzill Bitty Blossoms, Making Memories Velvet Brads and TAC's LillyAnna ribbons all match so beautifully with Catelynne!
The box went my friend Christine Chainey, who wasn't able to join us last weekend(we missed you!) but she was still able to participate in our gift exchange. (I hope you liked the box :). I sure had fun making it and was so tickled that you got it!)

I got this beautiful tag heart wall hanging from Barb Foster, who I met for the first time this weekend. Isn't it beautiful?! I LOVE IT! (Thank you, again, Barb! You are so talented!) The paper is TAC's Pop Rockz, which is still on special for a couple more days . . .
OK, want some candy, little girl? Be the first to post a comment including the two TAC paper names that are closest to my heart and why. (This should be easy for you Kansas girls--it was a trivia question in a game we played over the weekend.) Otherwise, post your favorite TAC paper name--not the design but just your favorite name. I'll give out candy for the first correct trivia answer as well as a random winner from the favorite name comments. Have fun!

Hmmm...I wasn't at the gathering but I will guess Catelynne and Lilly Anna because those are your daughters names. (well, Lily) Right? I will be embarassed if I'm wrong. LOL!

Yay! You got it Donna! My girls' names are Katelyn and Liliana. Spelled different, but the same names. Wow, this will be fun sending you candy! I'll get to pay you back for inspiring that AWESOME box you gals sent me from San Antonio!!!!!
(For the rest of you, leave your favorite TAC paper name for more candy!)

My favorite TAC paper name at the moment is Kamalaht! A cool spelling for that name! It's great paper too!

I have to say my favorite is Juliette and Amberley Grace. I am using some of the Amberley Grace in my daughters wedding scrapbook because it matched her colors fairly close.

You know I like the Miss Moxie because of the red.

OOOO... I love them all so this is going to be hard. I guess I'm going to have to choose Juliette. I love those soft browns and purples and the prints so lovely.

I forgot to mention that the box you altered is awesome!!! The papers and embellishments go so well and look so good.

My favorite paper name at the present time is Amberly Grace. I love the way it just rolls off your tongue. It is also one of my two fav papers, the other being Hemingway (go figure). I love the little box that you altered. I have so many items that I want to alter and now after the Kansas gathering, I want to make mini albums. So many ideas, and not enough hours in the day to get them finished. This year I'm asking Santa for an extra 4 hours in every day.

Hi Julie, love your blog. You post the most awesome projects and do a great job featuring TAC's fabulous papers. I'd have to say that, as far as names go, I like the Mimi papers the best--'cause I like to pretend they're named after me!

I'm so sad that I didn't get to come to the gathering....was on call with work :( Anyway, my favorite TAC paper name would be Mimi because of the rich browns that are paired with the pinks!! Absolutely, my fav color combo!!

Thanks for your wonderful blog...always so inspiring to me!!
