I love my iPhone!


A cell phone is a cell phone, or so I thought. I’d been putting off smart phones for a long time. What’d I need all that for? My contract was up for renewal, and the iPhone 4 was free, I got one. I loved it. I could work from my phone and not be chained to my computer. I thought my laptop was liberating. This thing made a big impact.

Impact. Falls, smashing, etc. I needed a case. It came with one, I couldn't justify buying another. Drooled over Jeanne Oliver’s phone cases. Her artwork is incredibly beautiful. I had recently painted (and sold) a canvas that I had taken a photo of. Duh! I could try that myself. I ordered 2 with my artwork on the back. When I didn’t get one of Jeanne’s under the tree, I swapped out my existing case (even gave it away) and put on the one I had ordered. Of course, I promptly dropped it and cracked it. I went on the hunt for a clear case to fit over top of it.

Meantime, I had come across this pin on Pinterest, and was stunned with myself for not thinking of this earlier. Went off to Dollarama, yes I looked elsewhere first. Incredibly easy, and can be changed often using scrap paper. $2, are you kidding me! So what if it only fits 99%. I can do this with it!

Supplies used: Paper by Authentique; tapes by Bella Blvd.; Stamp Tim Holtz; Tim Holtz Distress markers by Ranger.





















My Mom saw it, and wanted one for her iPhone.
I made this one for her.

Supplies used: Paper and letter stickers by Authentique; Sharpie pen.

SO pleased with the custom cases, now that’s impact!
Enjoy!
