fall mini

I made a fall mini album for a swap on   I even made a box for the mini to be placed in.  Watched a tutorial on you tube, I wish I had saved the video.   This really makes placing your mini on a shelf without getting messed up.   Used the Autumn paper from DCWV.  used 6 x 6 pieces of black chipboard, then glued sationary envelops for additional pockets.  Made some acetate cut outs that I colored with alchol in and copic markers.   Really happy with how this mini turned out.

Michelle Birthday Present

So I already posted the video for this project and want to also place on my blog.   This was based on Birdhouse Mini by Laura at    I decided to use Maraposa and Butterfly garden paper.  Also used a bunch of butterflies I got in a swap.   Lots of room in this mini for photos.

Vintage Tag

Here is the Vintage tag I made for a swap at   I love butterflies and loved this stamp from Tim Holtz.   I embossed the tag first and then used my distress stains to color the tag.   I used lots of Lindys  stamp gang to give my tag shimmer.   Stamped some more butterflies and embossed them with a mixture of pearl x, glitter and embossing powder.   I made a sweet charm to go at the top.  I hope everyone enjoys them.

Wall hanging for my hubby

Couple weeks ago I was on the and was doing a Sat night crop.   Well I did not realize we were suppose to be doing a sketch and did my own thing.   Worked out, for me though.  Found some old photos and made a wall hanging for my hubby's office.  I used my favorite colors and favorite flowers to make this all about me.  Enjoy

Throwback Thursday

Emma does a throwback challange every couple weeks.  This past week was a cricuitless challange, and the perfect opportunity for me to use my magnolia image to make my first Halloween card of the season.  I love coloring her up with my copics and added lots of stickles to this cute DCWV paper. Love how she turned out.

Susana's Gift

Here is a project I worked on as a Birthday gift for a friend. She recently visited Peurto Rico and I wanted to make a smash book type thing for her to put pictures and other stuff in.   I used a few different paper collections and my favorite I Am Roses.  I bound it all together, added ribbon and a charm I made and had the perfect gift.   I figure why go buy a smash book, they are very easy to make your own.

First are the tags I made in July for  I also made a video with more details.   I did 2 spots in this swap, for I can use the tags for  my son scrapbook albums.  I really love anything patriotic.
