Labels for Lightswitch

Dear Scrappers,

A small project I did for the Compendium of Curiosities 3, Challenge 33:

"Altered surfaces"

This great Vol. 3 of Compendium of Curiosities, from our dear Master Tim Holtz, is filled with great techniques and I was preparing another project for Connie Can Crop and decided to use this technique for this Lightswitch labels too:

 I had struggled since we moved to this new house with the multiple light switches throughout the whole house and found this labels a perfect solution:

 For the Extractor:
 For the heater:
 And of course the light:

This is the whole light switch panel with the beautiful altered letters as labels. I can't get into details about the technique, but you can find it in page 45 of this book.

The sponsor of this wonderful challenge is:

"The wonderful Joy and her family at Inspiration Emporium sponsor all our odd-numbered challenges, and they’re back with another fantastic FIFTY DOLLAR SHOPPING SPREE for one lucky CC3C entrant! "

I hope you enjoy this easy peace project and give me some sugar ;-)
Have a very blessed weekend,


  1. That's a lot of switches, and what a grand idea! I always turn on the wrong switches too. I might need to do this! The altered letters look wonderful! So cool and so original! Thanks so much for playing along with us at CC3C!!!

  2. What a great idea! I've got switches in our house that I flip, not knowing what's going to fire up, after 14 years. Great job with Tim's technique!

  3. Now this is not only a great idea but clever as well! What a creative fun way to label the switches! Thanks so much for sharing!!!

  4. How did this get past me? Sorry that I'm late in commenting...better late than never! This is such a clever idea, Vicky. Such a useful idea, too! You did a wonderful job with the altered surfaces technique on your Alpha Letters. Thanks for sharing with all of us at CC3C. <3 Candy

  5. Thank you ladies for all your kind commends. I got 5 more of those multiple switches to label... ;-) and they all don't have the same order to make matters more confused...
