A Tribute to a Father who served

This Shadowbox was such an honor to put together. I was asked to work my magic on the existing elements in the shadow box and make it nice and memorable. I spent one day putting this together and am really happy with the result. I used BoBunny’s Anthem paper collection and really loved the layering to bulk up the framing of the photos and pieces. I had some clear star stick pins from one of my trips out to Valencia’s Remember When (no longer in business) 😦 and they worked great to anchor the medals to the back of the box. I used the alpha letters from the collection sticker sheet to spell “dad” as well. I used some red, white & blue ribbon with stars wrap around the side of one of the photographs. I also used some red and white striped washi tape. I think I got the ribbon at Michaels in the $1 bin! What a lovely tribute piece to a beloved family member to display and enjoy. God Bless America! We need it…photo 4 photo 3_3 photo 3_2 photo 2_3 photo 2_2 photo 2 photo 1_3 photo 1_2 photo 1_1


Cards & a tiny rant!

Hi all, I’m back here to share a few cards I’ve made and spent over 25 minutes typing descriptions, anecdotes, and products used when all of a sudden, I hit something on my keyboard and my post was all GONE! Not sure what I hit but reminder to self: save, save, save as you go…

Just pictures now, I hope you don’t mind.

Mini Matchbook Album Set

This Country, rootin’ tootin’ themed mini matchbook album set is encased in an altered cedar sachet box with a satin ribbon pull. The albums all have pull out patterned paper for placing small photographs and are hand stamped on the back for journaling. Each matchbook album measures 2.5″ x2.75″ and the box measures 8.5″x3″. I’m sold on hot glue now!  I was so hesitant but… nothing works better on fabric/ribbon/lace.

I made this little mini album out of scalloped chipboard tags for my mom this Christmas. BoBunny paper with plenty of trim, embellishments, I’m very proud of the chipboard tree I glittered up with dollar bin glitter glue! It was so easy and packs such a punch. It was fast and easy to put together! My mom loved it.

Little Miss – Bo Bunny Album

This adorable collection from BoBunny is so impressive with the images designed. I just love working with it! I’m making another album as we speak. A few things I did with this album are: I distressed the edges with Gathered Twigs by Tim Holtz, painted a paper doily black with acrylic paint and made a page behind double doors that open with a velcro circle cut in half.

Materials used:

Black sewn lunch sack album (find on e-bay or make yourself)

Bo Bunny’s Little Miss sticker sheets, chipboard embellishments and button pack

DCWV Garden Tea Party Stack

*Resist canvas by Tim Holtz, lace ribbon bow by Jolee’s Boutique, borders by K&Co., cameo & jewel buttons by Dress It Up Button Co.
