8x8 Snow Angel Scrapbook Pages

Listed on Ebay you can find it HERE.

I decided to make up a few scrapbook pages and see how they sell. I made these 2 snow angel themed pages. Machine sewn, lots of glits and glimmer. chipboard snowflakes with chunky glitter, and dew drops,lace, pearl flurishes, 2 places for picks and a place to journal. I added some vintage stickers on aged cardstock, and then did the ..you guessed it, dryer sheet technique! I had too...it made the pages! added a little glitter to them , ribbon to one and they look fantastic! I had fun making these and will probably made a few more others and list on ebay or etsy. I may try these on ebay this time, its gotten so expensive to list on there so that is why i quit and just stuck with etsy. But i might see how this sells and go from there. Where ever i list i will come back here and post it so you can find it if your interested.! thanks for stopping by!

Dryer sheets...who would of thunk!

I made some cards today and i think ive gone completely crazy for dryersheets!!!!! I watched a tutorial the other day from Beate on her blog Fresh and Fun, you can find it HERE. Oh my im addicted to it now! lol I can seem to wash and dry clothes fast enough to do this, and i have to fight the puppies for the dryer sheets!! Now i am going to HAVE to get a zyron machine, as i dont have one now so i improvised and used some teriffically tacky tape, in sheet form. I stuck the TTT on the front of the image, and it makes it a little yellower in color, but it still worked, then rub on the dryer sheet, then you still feel a little sticky coming through the dryer sheet and i rubbed some of the martha stewart fine glitter on it like Beate did and it is so awesome! Just make you so happy !!! You have to try it! Makes it so soft looking! So i used what i had, I think i can squeeze one or 2 more small ones on the rest i have if im very careful!! lol Friday im going to town and will price out one of those zyrons! LOL. My kids might have to go with out a meal but im getting one! JK!
Anywho back to the cards! I colored these 2 images, The bear is lily of the valley and the girl and her dog is a penny johnson. I used some scrap papers on the cards, one i used kraft paper for the card itself and the other a blue cardstock for the card. I stamped snowflakes on the girl and her dog cards and then on one i clear embossed over the larger snowflakes, on the other i added rhinestones for a little sparkle!

On the bear stamped cards i used more scrap papers and machine sewed them and added some snowflakes that i used chalk ink on to add some color to match the dotted paper behind the image! All have the same sentiments, you warm my heart and Im keeping one of each and posting the other 2 on etsy, hopefully tomorrow!

Thanks for stopping by, if you need me ill be sitting by the dryer waiting for my dryer sheet!

File Folder Album

I grabbed a cup of cappuccino, and had me a good relaxing time in my craft room . I have projects laid out on what i want to do in the next few days. I decided to start with this fun project of a file folder album, Your so Tweet theme. I received a new die cut, two actually, that i ordered from my favorite things, from die-namics, i got the rolled rose die and the rolled flower die as well. My daughter Bailee and i had a good time using my scrap paper cutting out a bunch to keep on hand to use for projects and cards! Im still trying to figure out the rolled rose one, but this one i think i can handle! lol
This file folder has 4 tags on the inside in 4 pockets. The pockets are decorated with journaling tags to fill out, like Facts about you and Favorite things! Great gift for your daughter, your friend whom ever! All tied together with a black and white check ribbon!

Special Order Box and Birdhouse

Here is another special order I finished last week. I covered the box with creative imaginations papers, added some butterflies. There are butterflies in the pattern of all the papers, so pretty, so I thought i would pull that out of the paper and add some to the decor! i also made up 20 tags, one set was done with the butterfly theme and fine glitter as accents, the other were more simple and rustic using the same papers through out. I did a set of 10-12 writing papers as well. The top of the box has a rose made out of ribbon that i twisted up . I couldnt find flowers that I was really pleased with so i just made up the ribbon ones! Glittered holly and berrys were also added to the top with the fabulous butterfly. The birdhouse was made from a pattern in the matching paper and i accented it to match the box, if you notice i stuck a bird inside !! tee hee.

8x8 Paper Bag Album for Ava

Finished my special order!! Im really pleased with the way it turned out! I really like the size of this album. I am used to making the 5x5 and i still think they are my favorite still. But the 8x8 is a really nice size and will hold alot of pictures and journaling.

I started by coloring up a magnolia stamp, of a girl blowing bubbles, thought that was so cute and went with the celebration of a birthday, especially a first birthday! I colored the image with colored pencils and OMS, then added some shimmering H2Os and some stickles. I added clear dew drops to the bubbles for a 3d effect. Lots of ribbon, butterflies and buttons in the album, and i continued the dew drops through out as well.
