 Just listed this cute Winter Fun Album on Etsy, you can find it HERE  in my Etsy store.  This is a 6x6 Paperbag Scrapbook Album. It is 12 pages long, 7 journaling tags, 2 pull out pages, and lots of places for pictures! This is Echo Park Winter park paper set, with stickers. I layered up some paper and stickers here on the first page, adding some puffy snowglitter to the snow man and trees! Stickles ICE glitter glue to the snowflake for a pop on the page. lots of ribbons, and a cold facts tab added and stapled to the front page.
 The first 2 pages, shown here, have a place for a picture with some photo tabs, a journaling card held on with a small tim holtz paper clip that i added some green ribbon to. the next page has a place for more journaling.  snowflakes, glittler and machine stitching.
 Page 3 is another placement for a picture, just slip behind the innertube and into the photo corner! A large tag room enough for lots of journaling and another picture or 2! the pocket is also a journaling spot! I added some diecut snowflakes and punched snowflakes attached with a matching brad.
 Page 5 has another large tag, and journaling pocket.  Page 6 a photo placement area, slip behind the snowflake and snowboarder sticker.
 Page 7  is a page for another photo, machine stitching again as through out, with a journaling card held onto the page with a black clip. The next page has a pocket i made with the big stickers of the lodge and car, machine sewn on to make the pocket. I added stickles to the snow areas and a large tag for more pics and journaling, there are 2 pull out tags that you can see by the large bows on each side of the picture.
The last 2 pages, are again a photo page and a photo pocket page. you can slip your picture behind the tab and the winterwonderland sentiment. I made the pocket on the net page by sticking the 3 houses together on a half circle piece of card stock, machine sewn onto the page. I added more puffy snow glittler, for demention and fun and more stickles glittler to the snowy areas on the houses. 2 large tags for journaling and adding pictures to the backs round out this album.! its so darn fun!

This is the new line of stamps coming out by the designer of Teddybo. These digi stamps will have their grand opening on January 12, 2012.  Here is my project i made with one of the images. Its a Journal I made covering a comp book with some pretty papers, and then put white paint over with a scraper to make it look shabby chic. A trimming of rose lace on the side. I colored the image with promarkers, cut out extra wings and a heart to make them pop up for a 3d effect. I added gold stickles to her wings and in a dotted pattern around the image. I added pink distress stickles to the heart. Green sheer ribbon, ties the book covers shut! so fun!

New Teddy Bo Release for Today!

 Yeah! another teddybo release...i wait every week with baited breath......I love these images so...i just cant wait for more and more! My Name is Renee' and I have a problem......LOL are the cute new releases...for this week and here is my project with one of the images. I used the teddybeabo_09 image with the banner colored with promarkers...i did a modeling paste resist i think its called where i colored the image, then scanned it on my printer/computer then printed it off on a lighter weight sheet of paper.. i took my muslin and spread a thin layer of the modeling paste on it and then i put the picture face down into the paste. Smoothing it out. Let dry.....then when completely dry take a damp cloth and pat on the paper,,,it will show its damp and then when its all damp, not wet wet...rub off the paper with your finger...and you have the image left on the fabric! its fun to do.Now you need to note that alot of times the colors dont transfer the same so expect it to me a bit vintagie worn looking!   I then added the polka dot material and a green to the back to match, added a twine hanger. On the front i machine sewed the swirls and the edging , i had added some padding in the middle to make it a bit puffy. Some prima flowers and a polka dot bow and some rhinestones and buttons finish it off! OH and i stamped welcome little one on it the last thing. I just laid out the sentiment to mimick the shape of the banner! Thanks for stopping stuff coming soon, be sure to check back!!!

Birthday Gift...

I made up this framed art for a friend of mines birthday this past week.  I was inspired by Christy Tomlinson and her Art. I used a piece of canvas, and then added scrapbook papers to the page with mod podge. I then added color with both acrylic paint and watercolor paints. I took modeling paste and added some yellow ink to the paste and added some color to it. I then used my flower stencil and added the paste to the top spreading it as evenly as i could. I then took my big script stamp and stamped over the whole piece even onto the partially dry paste...I found this butterfly online when searching butterflies and i took a sheet of my canvas sheets...and i printed it out on the canvas. I popped the color with some of my watercolor tombow markers and blended it in, used my white gelly pen and highlighted the dots . Then i added stickles to the butterfly for a pop of shine! It only took me a minute to think of what i wanted to put on this canvas for my friend Roxie..."she gave strength to those around her".  She is an amazing woman, who has been my strength and biggest encourager. So i wanted this gift to be special for her. I added paint to a piece of bubble wrap and added to the picture, hightlighted the words, and added stickles to the word "strength". Christy usually uses rub ons to her painting in places , but I found this stamp set that is really perfect for using in place of the rub ons and i can use it over and over again! Money saving!  Im all about being frugal! I got this frame at the thrift store and it was wood with good splatters on it. I sanded it and painted it white. Roxie was happy with her gift, thats what matters!
