Today, Crate Paper is exhibiting a beautiful array of altered crafts, and cards, from the shabby chic expert, Andrea Budjack. We crossed paths with her whimsical creations a few months ago at Pinterest. Her work had immediately caught our attention, and so, we asked her if she would join us for a day at the Crate Blog! As luck would have it, she said, "Yes!" Two months later, the moment is finally here. Please, give a warm welcome to our talented guest, Andrea Budjack
Call Florida our home with my hubby and two quickly growing boys. Spend my days at home taking care of the four C's in my life: cleaning, crafting, caring for the family, cooking. Have been crafting for the past eight years. Often find that I gravitate to crafting at some point throughout each day. Love being inspired by and inspiring others.

Love the sheet of tags, perfect for just about everything. I envisioned a carousel of photos and tags, layered together, which is how I came up with this. Created from a base of a wooden knob and formed wire, this project includes five paperclip holders.
These beautiful papers, stickers and embellishments were fun to work with in creating a wall clock. Something that would be displayed in my craft room with a variety of colors and patterns to keep me inspired. The wood frame created a create start to the clock, backing it with paper and chipboard. Painted the frame sticker to give it a little rustic, shabby chic feel.
Love creating cards and the chipboard stickers are a perfect way to add dimension and color to them.
Sincerely, thank-you so much Andrea for honoring us, and our blog readers, with all that you've made from our Story Teller & Pretty Party collections. You've brightened our day! Everything is simply gorgeous. We hope you'll visit again another time!
