An Appointment With Crafting

I needed a date book for work, and couldn’t find anything that really grabbed me.
So – I altered one!

I started with one I found at Barnes & Noble.

Then, I used these adorable Thrift Shop rub-ons from October Afternoon
For this book, I started with the yellow doily rub-on and layered the ladies on top.

Easy as pie!  Hope this inspires you to use those fun scrapbooking embellishments in new ways!!

Digital Age

Ahhh, Christmas morning. 
Two little people enjoying the magic of the holiday and having fun….playing with digital devices??? 
Wow.  When did this happen?
Cousins sitting side-by-side with their iPads and iPods -too cute to pass up this photo opportunity!
I thought I would make an ironic scrapbook layout to showcase their modern toys by making the page in a Vintage style. 
I used www.picnik.com to make the picture look like a Polaroid. 

The paper I used is from Sassafras Lass.  I embellished the page with a paper doily and some handmade crocheted flowers. 
Thanks for stopping by!

Warm Christmas Memories

One of the wonderful things about scrapbooking is that the holidays are never really over.  You get a chance to play with the pictures and fun holiday-themed paper and embellishments long after the last Christmas gift is opened.
We had such a great time seeing the family back in Las Vegas this year.  The weather was beautiful and the time spent together was magical.

This layout was done using the new Bo Bunny Father Christmas line as well as lots of fabulous Prima flowers. 
This page was all about layers for me.  I used several layers just in the background cardstock alone and then added here and there until I found a collage that I liked (the page weighs like 5 pounds! lol).
Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas season!  Have lots of fun scrappin’ those memories!

Cross Crafting

I’m a lover of crafts.  If I can make something with my hands, I’m all over it (except for cooking dinner).  Sometimes I just like to wander the craft store isles and find ideas for new crafts…until I remind myself of all the 1/2 finished projects waiting for me at home!
When two of my artistic passions come together, well, it’s just magical.  I’ve enjoyed merging my love of embroidery with card making.  Sure, each card can take a week to make, but it’s

a lot of fun to work on and I love that each piece is truly one-of-a-kind.

Here are some of my recent projects using embroidery in my greeting cards:
Really happy with this one. I used glitter and watercolor pencil on it as well. You can check it out on Etsy for more photos.
This was one of the first big embroidery project cards for me (more pictures on Etsy).  I had this piece next to my couch every night until I had finished the pattern.  This project took me through America’s Next Top Model and American Idol several times…
The power button card below has kind of a funny story attached.  I made it one night and showed my hubby when he came home.  I said, “Look!  It’s an X-Box card!  Isn’t that awesome?!” and he gave me a questioning look.  I said, “See?  It’s the button that’s on the X-Box!” 
He walked over to the computer and pointed to the screen, then the speakers, then the TV remote.  I hadn’t realized that it was the universal POWER button.  LOL! 
Well, to me, it will always mean X-Box (that’s why I chose the card stock and colors, too).
Such versatility with skulls now days!  Who knew???  🙂  This girly one was also embellished with watercolor pencils and bling.  I like the cupcake card stock and satin bow, too.
That completes my embroidered card tour.  Hope it inspires you to mix and match your favorite crafts!

Lent

The beginning of Lent is a reminder that Easter is not too far away!  I’m still trying to get used to writing 2010 (so many scratched out checks…)

Here we are ~ weather getting warmer, birds chirping, bees chasing me when I take product photos outside.  Awwwwwwwwwww, Springtime must be around the corner!

I love walking through the local craft stores and seeing all the happy decor! The background props in these photos is from a cute Vintage looking egg wreath. I think it really adds a little extra coziness to the cards. 🙂
