Just a fun project I came up with.

My daughter made me a "cuff" out of an old shirt and I love it. I asked her if I could decorate it and bling it out and she said "of course that is why I made it for you"!! So, I did and here are the pics.
I am also posting pics of the mini that I will be teaching during a workshop tomorrow. So excited my first mini workshop.

 I made all of the flowers that are on here myself.
 I made this ring last week. I love it. ;)
 This flower was made from lace that was gifted to me and the center is an awesome button I found.
 These fabric roses are so easy and fun to make.
 I love dragonflies.

 This mini is the one I am helping the ladies make at the workshop. They will have the choice of what paper they would like to use. This is mostly 7 Gypsies.

 I hope you enjoyed this.Have a scraptastic day!!

My first paperbag mini!!

I love to try new things, so I thought that it was time to make a paperbag mini. I got the idea to fold the paper bag to create a front pocket from Following The Paper Trail. Not only was this the first time I have made a paper bag mini it is also my first attempt at shabby chic. I am really trying to channel my girly side. Speaking of girly side I made a ring as well. I know enough typing on with the pictures. ;)

 This stamped images I used in this mini are all Close to my Heart stamps.
 I love this Tim Holtz tissue tape. I purchased it a few months ago and I find myself sneaking it into just about every project.
 The butterfly has been stickled. I love stickles.
 I used white craft paint to get the "dreamy" soft appearance on the pages.

 Have a scraptastic day all my amazingly creative friends!!

Hello my scraptastic friends,
I have valentines day on the brain as well as in the heart this year. Heck I have valentines in my hands too. LOL I just can't stop making valentines day projects. Here are two of my most recent.

 Layouts are usually such a challenge for me. Then it dawned on me that large layouts were just giant mini albums and now that is how I treat them. ;) Weird I know, but it worked.

 I LOVE this card. I had so much fun making this. I started out making cards and then fell in love with mini albums. It had been a while since I had made a card. I was wondering if I had lost my card making mojo. (giggle)
 ok friends I know this one is side ways.  I will figure out how to fix it. I just love the way this photo came out better.

This last photo is a sneak peak at the paper bag mini I just finished a few days ago. I will be posting photos on tomorrows post. Please be looking for it.

I have one last quick note. I am teaching my first mini album class this weekend and again on Tuesday. (eeeeek!!) So excited.  I will posting pics of the finished project on Monday. Or if I get froggy maybe I will post later on today. ;)
Have a scraptastic day everyone,
