Vintage Charm

I made these 2 tag cards for the fun of it today. I was looking through my paper craft magizine and saw a cute card that was made with a tag as well. It was vintage in feel and i thought i would make my own version of that card! So I dug through my papers and put together these colors and these images. And did a bit of aging with some inks and sewing , and roughed up the edges and this is what i came up with! I LOVE them. One is a 4x5 size and the other 3.5x4.5. I think i might have to make a few more! to fun! Then i may put a couple up on etsy for sale. Let me know what you think!

Winter Paperbag Snow Album 6x6

I have made this paper bag scrapbook album to list on ebay in the near future! I have so loved working on this album. The paper is Bo bunny and it is gorgeous!!! Sparkle and shine! Its fabulous, you will LOVE LOVE LOVE it!
I decided to make the album a 6x6, a little larger then what im used to. But it was worth it. I used a tilda on the front and colored her in colored pencils and OMS. I added some fun flock to her hood and muff to add a little texture and charm. The snowflakes are colored and crystal glitter is added with a dew drop center to make them look fab. Lots of ribbon and jingle bells to add even more fun!!! There are 12 tags and 2 pull out pages for adding pictures and journaling! I made the snowman tag by coloring a stamped image an adding embossing powders and crystal glitter to spice him up! I put the image on an aged tag i made by dipping it in coffee/vanilla and baking in the oven. You will LOVE this album, will be fun to put your winter pics in it! So far here in Kansas..we have had 3 good storms since Oct...and would have LOTS to put in it!

But if you want to purchase it before i do that...let me know. I will be listing it for $45.99. Lots of hours an work went into this album along with supplies. Thanks for stopping by. email me if you have any questions.

A New Camera and some Stuff !

Well i havn't posted in a while as my camera decided it had had enough! SO to get back at it...i decided to buy a replacement an so far i think it is taking it badly! LOL. My new camera makes my old one look like a dinosaur! ha ha I am trying to figure out the new is quite a feat for me! eegads. So these first pics will not be the best....but i will keep messing around with it and will finally get it figured out, probably about the time IT decides to die on me ! lol I have 4 sets of 6 cards that i am doing for a good friend for her order. I will show you most of the cards and later i will show you the "holders" they will go in. I am waiting for my cuttlebug to get in and some dies and embossing folders that i ordered to come in to spruce them up. My hubby was generous enough to give me his bonus $ to use on purchasing the cuttlebug and cuttlekids for miss Bailee. The "money" was certificates to use only in our town. So luckily we have a scrapbooking store where my friend Althea was glad to order me in my items! Thank you Althea!
I will also show you a tag i made from a snowman image (StampinUP) for the fun of it! I made one for a few people i know to have them "think Snow" LOL. I showed it to my scrapbook store friend and she wants me to do a class ! yikes!

I also posted a little project i made for a friends daughter just for the fun of it. My friend vicky started me in the stamping paper world and has been so loving, kind and generous to me and a true true friend. So i wanted to send something to her and i thought since i was sending Vicky something i would send something to one of her daughters!
Anyways Blah blah blah...enough said! ha ha

Autumn Scrapbook Page

I saw a scrapbook page in a Scrapbooking & Beyond Magazine (fall 2009). I LOVED it. So i decided to make one, with a few changes, same layout but a few of my little additions to make it more "ME". Anyways I used some chipboard vines that i colored with inks, and added some pretty Prima flowers to the vine. I used some of my eco africa paper as the center where one would put the picture. Roughing the edges and adding Celebrate Autumn as a title. I tucked in a MME journaling card. I love these i bought quite a few of them to use for my albums etc. I was also thinking this would be fabulous framed and hung on the wall! Thanks for stopping by!

New Project!

I had these wooden boxes that i received from a friend, and i was thinking about what i could do with it! Well...I had just gotten this stampinUP stamps from another sweet friend for my birthday ! So i decided to use them both! I covered this box with some cute cute papers, Karen Foster picnic cloth, Cookbookin, by preserving memories with the roosters. The stampin up bon appetit! I colored the image with colored pencils and OMS! I made it look more like a lightly colored watercolored image, so it would blend in like the back ground of the rooster paper. I cute out and stamped 24 recipe cards to fit in the box. Hand stamping each one and adding matching papers to the bottom and a punched out matching flower as well. The recipe cards are 4.5 x 2.75. The set is to darn cute!!!!!!!!!!!!! I hope to have another one finished tomorrow, a little different then this one. Just a little! lol.
