Refurbishing a Tiki Hut Decor Piece.

Faded. Dirty. Bird Poo. Old looking.

Other than that, it’s perfectly fine and in good condition.


Break out the acrylic paint, glitter glue, Martha Stewart metallic craft paint and brushes.

Put on your favorite show in craft room, grab a yummy coffee from the kitchen, sit down.

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.

Haunted Estate Paper Bag Mini Album

Hello all!

I’m still enjoying this fall/Halloween season with all the paper collections out there right now.¬†I am plugging away at a few more Halloween projects¬†before moving onto Christmas. This particular album was great to make and… I was really impressed with Recollections’ design and style of their patterned paper. I was looking for spoooky¬†and they definitely delivered!

I used some I Am Roses flowers on the cover with a stick pin that I glued a cute little button to. I finished it off with a spooky lady skeleton cameo. On the binding, I used some fun trim and attached a Tim Holtz little glass bottle of black glitter with some bakers twine.

The¬†oval¬†tags inside the album that look spritzed… were. I didn’t care for how “bright white” they looked, so I sprayed them with some Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist. The trim on most of all the tags¬†was Martha Stewart (this year’s collection) and used Tim Holtz’s¬†Tiny Attacher. Some additional¬†embellishments are from Jolee’s, Martha Stewart and trim & buttons¬†from my stash. I hope you enjoy!

Baby Girl Lunch Sack Mini Album #2

This lush mini album has pearl finished papers from DCWV Luxury Stack, tags from Best Creations ‘Sweet Baby’ collection, tons of embellishments from K& Co., many stylish buttons from Dress It Up Button Co., cut outs from the Silhouette Cameo, I am Roses flowers, collectible buttons, trim from Michaels, my personal stash, Recollections layered flowers, and more! I wasn’t sure about the choice in the paper until I got going with the album then it all fell together in such a classy, rich way. I love the fun result. It’s very girlie and soft. The pictures actually do the album justice! Although there is nothing like holding a finished project in your hands. I hope you enjoy and feel free to leave a comment!¬†
