Storage Idea

As a crafter, you can never run out of creative ways to store things. This particular storage solution was born out of necessity (like most things)…

I went to my local Tuesday Morning and found this adorable drink dispenser with the intention of using for iced tea, fruit infused water, etc… However, when I assembled it, filled it up and began to use it, it leaked!

The rest is history and I decided to store my seam binding and raw twine in it. I love the idea, it makes me happy. Especially since I paid under $6 for it on sale.


Magical, Whimsical, Sparkly! OZ by my mom

Hello bloggers,

I’m excited to share with you this amazing OZ shaped chipboard album my mom made with Graphic 45’s Magic of Oz papers! There are beautiful tags, sparkling elements, tons of trim and More!  She covered the chipboard album (purchased in the shape of Oz) with green glittered cardstock and from there, it was all uphill 🙂

Birthday Card for mom

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

A card for mom using Prima Reflections paper collection. I added a piece of a paper doily, layered some Recollections paper flowers and secured them with Recollections heart shaped pearl brads, embellished my very first stick pin and embellished the flowers with flat back pearls from recollections. The Lace thickers (thick sticker letters) are also from Recollections. Wow, OK, thank you Recollections, I guess I hadn’t realized so many of my staple supplies are from them.

Puppy Album aka Baby Book

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

This puppy album was created for a little guy named Dallas. He has quickly become king of the throne in his household. I found these older papers at Big Lots on southern Ca. They add so much to the book as well as the personalized paw print! The embellishments are a few buttons, bling & twine and ribbon. Other than that, the paper and pics do all the work.

April Card Challenge — I Heart 2Stamp

After being encouraged to enter my first card challenge, I was steered to a few websites for some recon and so decided to go with this month’s sketch challenge through

i {heart} 2stamp sponsored by THERE SHE GOES CLEAR STAMPS

The layout was clean and simple with plenty of room for imagination and interpretation. The result was homespun cuteness. The colors I used are some of my very favorite, especially the aqua tones. Being a March baby and my birthstone being aquamarine, it’s fitting and I always gravitate to those soft tones aside from vintage projects that have a lot of brown tones (I love working with those tones as well!)
