Haul


Hi Everyone,
I know I promised a Stampin' on Friday video for today but when I sat down to decide what I was going to do nothing was coming. I think my mojo has taken an early vacation for the holiday weekend. I did get two small packages yesterday and thought maybe a little haul video was the way to go :) I also tossed in some other products I've purchased over the past few weeks as well. I guess a 16 minute video is not really a little haul video is it?

Hope you have a wonderful day and a fantastic Memorial Day weekend
Hugs and happy crafting

Some Altered Projects

Hi Everyone,
As some of you already know I work at my local library. As a matter of fact this June I'll be starting my 21 year. One of my favorite parts of my job is working on special projects. I'm currently co-chairing our annual fundraiser which is tons of work but oh so much fun. Anyway one of the things we do at the fundraiser is raffle off baskets. Last year I made a frame that I put into a basket with a few other crafty girls at the library. This year I'm doing a whole basket...
Here is what I worked on this weekend :)

The frame is from Michael's and measure's 12x12 (holds at 5x7 picture). I started off by painting it with Vintage White acrylic paint and then took a piece of burlap that I sprayed with glimmer mist and cut it to fit. The section for the picture was a little tricky. Added tons of I Am Roses flowers and then a little pearly bling from recollections.


This little oval box is from Joann's. I did the same as above by painting it with acrylic paint, added burlap, flowers, and some dyed seam binding. Can't forget the tea dyed tag :)

next up is a little picture frame jewelry box. I don't remember the name of the site I got this from, but I decorated just like above....

And here is everything....

I still need to make a set of note cards to add to the raffle.
Thanks for stopping by everyone, I hope you have a great day

Stampin' on Friday (5/18/12) You are amazing

Hi Everyone,
Happy Friday :)
Are you ready for Stampin' On Friday? Today's card features Pink Paislee's Prairie Hill 6x6 paper and stamp set.  Such an adorable collection that reminds me of the last time I tried to fly a kite, I ended up in a ditch because I was watching the kite and not where I was running :) Good Times, Good Times!

Here is a picture of the completed card.

Have a great weekend everyone. Enjoy and happy crafting :)

Mother's Day Cards

Hi Everyone,
I hope you had a great weekend :)
Wanted to share with you the two Mother's Day cards I made for my mom and mother-in-law.

You know when you wait til the last minute to make a card and then you have this pressure to get it done and come up with a design...That happened to me so I went back to some older videos and did a redesign for Mother's Day.

Here is the first card I did...The original card I made was a birthday card.
I added a scallop background from the original card to give it an added something.You can see the original Stampin' on Friday episode HERE.

and this is the second card I made.
For this one I really just changed to colors. It kind of reminds me of a picnic, it must be the stripes in the pattern paper. You can find the original Stampin' on Friday episode HERE
