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!

IF you are interested in it before i list it on sunday, either on etsy or ebay, havent decided , but will post the link on here for which ever i choose. 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
