Steampunk

I made this 8×8 album as a special order for a steampunk album. It was my first time making anything in this style and it was fun using lots of new materials- from Swellegant paints to Prima Marketing metallic waxes.

I used Etsy printables for the paper backgrounds and many of the printed embellishments .

I made this pressure gauge out of cardboard that I painted with the copper Swellegant paint. I added liquid diamonds to the printed gear face so it would look like glass and then finished it off with brads, a Tim Holtz year and a lightbulb embellishment (also by Tim Holtz).

Up, up, and away!

Gesso and metallic paints helped bring these pages to life!

Pockets!

This was a fun collage. I used buttons, keys, glass beads, and even screws to add layers and texture. Then I covered the whole thing with black gesso. Once that was dry, I lightly went over the pieces with Prima Marketing silver wax.

I love these clock die cuts from Tim Holtz. I cut out several for this album.

I used lots of lace and some burlap to give the pages dimension…

This last page has tags that tuck in behind the lightbulb print.

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope these pages inspire you – feel free to comment or send me photos of your work as well. I would love to see what you make!

Cookie Monster on the Loose

Messy babies must be photographed! It’s some kind of unspoken rule. Here is my little Henry, covered in sea salt chocolate chip cookies. YUM!

Cookie face!

For this layout, I used Basic Grey’s Ambrosia paper line. I liked mixing a pop of bright teal with the stressed, grungy look of the orange and red paper collection. This is a quick, simple layout style that can easily be used for any occasion.

Feel free to use this design in your own layouts. Thanks for stopping by, and happy crafting!

My Little Pumpkin Turns One

Pumpkin Patch Birthday Party

On evenings when my little guy, Henry, decides to sleep well, I enjoy the occasional paper piecing. Granted, they make the scrapbook layout-making process much longer (this double-page layout took me a little over 2 hours), however, I am always so pleased with the results.

I used the Miss Kate Cuttables Pumpkins in Wagon SVG for my Cricut. I originally incorporated the eight layer pumpkins into my invitations, and then realized how perfect they would be on the scrapbook page as well. I used the invitation as my main embellishment, since it already contained all the party details.

We had Henry’s birthday at the Country Mercantile pumpkin patch, so it was perfect!

Home is where the ART is.

I love finding new ways to use paper!
I made these fun wooden plaques using the $1 wood ovals from Michaels.
I painted the sides with dark brown and then used hot glue on the front to paste down my favorite Cosmo Cricket Gretel paper.  I sanded the paper to give it a good edge, flush with the wood and to antique it a bit.
The letters were cut from my Cricut and then decorated with lots of little flowers, ribbon and buttons.
I stapled some gingham ribbon on the back of each piece of wood when I was finished.
It’s a fun, easy project, and a great way to display your favorite paper patterns.

P.S. I have a special, secret raffle planned for all attendees…..

Avast, Ye Scurvy Dogs!

Yar! 
Our weather be good, so we decided to set out on a treasure hunt!
Me mateys and I followed the clues throughout the house…er…island to discover the wooden treasure box buried in the sandbox…er…exotic sand dunes.
Me first mate, Jackson and his swash-buckling cousins had so much fun with the adventure. 
The candy and gold chocolate bounty were enough to keep ’em happy until they sailed off to bed that night.
