Traditions Simply Elegant Mini Album


I dont even know where to begin, so much is crammed in this mini! ¬†Lots of Dollar Tree embellishment stickers, Lots of Prima stamps, K&Co Paper Moss form Dollar Tree, Dollar tree satin roses, ¬†Flowers I made, Flowers friends made, Flowers bought in bulk. Cricut Cuts, Package inserts, The bird on the bottom of the second page was hand cut. ¬†The kep holes are a Tom Holts Sizzix Die. ¬†The pink rose and the love charm were gifts from Krista, from Krista’s Paper Cafe. ¬† I must however tell you, the paper piecing of the bird in the gold cage, was bought on Ebay, I couldnt resist him, and I dont remember who it was. When I find out, I will definitely (as always) give credit where credit is due! ¬†The mini is simply healed together by a thick string of jute. ¬†I love the simple graceful elegance of this one!

The Help has been passed on to a beautiful friend


And of course she’s going to need a book mark, To tell the truth, I had a crafty epic fail the morning I made this and by the end of the day, I was plain out determined to put these hands to paper and create something beautiful before the day was over.

A friend seen the movie and wanted to then¬†read the book, I had it¬† because I read, and finished the book my Girls’ first day back to school, so I sent it on to her.¬†¬† By the time I was half done with this tag, I knew God had begun¬†this tag with a purpose.¬† It was for her.¬† It was sent on to her and received with many happy smiling thanks!¬† It felt wonderful!¬† I don’t usually do cute, but it turned out that way.¬† It was just¬† what came out of me.

I inked the background (manilla paper tag) using  American Girl ink Pink and Blue (Purple is just the overlapping of colors) with my Tim Holtz applicator, and a piece of felt, I never buy the refills, just a white piece of felt.

Autumn Leaves brand stamps on the ticket, This is a real (just inked) ticket that my daughter won from a game at the skating rink, They are blank on the back, I put them to good use!

Denim Love


Karen Foster Denim Pockets Paper

I am making the move to WordPress, and trying to figure out this place, it is very different from my Blogspot!¬† I will be learning for a while, but will get it soon!¬† I don’t know how to control my picture placements correctly yet, but soon, I will! ūüôā Also all my posts are not yet transferred, so if you click on any of the side bars, you will not get much.

It has been a long summer, and I have not been able to craft as I would like, but I have plenty of things on their way, I¬†will host an Upcycle¬†blog hop next month here to kick off my new blog, and a big swap in October that’s always so exciting!¬†

I was trying to get my groove back with these denim looking cards, I’m still not back there yet,¬†¬†I need to ¬†keep my hands in it, so that ¬†it will come back soon!¬†¬†¬† I miss the heck out of my groove, If you see it, please tell it to call home!¬† Id sure appreciate it!

Since I last posted, my Cricut¬†Expression bit it, My Gypsy never worked correctly, so they are both in the process of being replaced by Provo Craft, and I have an ECraft in route as we speak, So I have plenty to post coming up!¬† Thanks so much, for hanging on with me and don’t forget to re-follow me here!¬†
