Vintage Mini Album *You Tube*

Hi everyone... tonight Im sharing with you my new Vintage Mini Album that I recently finished this weekend. I have lots of tiny mini's inside that was inspired by several mini albums out there. Thank you soooo much!! So many creative minds.... :) I wanted to make a new vintage mini album using lots of browns, golds and creams. I used many of my leftover flowers and the paper I bought at Walmart for $5.00...It is from Colorbok. This is a 6 x 6 paper bag mini album. I just use regular paper bags because I have so many in the house from when my children were younger....long time ago! lol
So here is the front cover using lots of flowers and a Tim Holtz metal piece. 

Here is a side view using burlap on the spine....under it is cardstock reinforced a few times. 

A few sneak peeks....the front inside page....

A few pages later....

Here is a new You Tube video too! 
Thanks for watching!

Have a great week!

100% Genuine

Hi everybody....sharing with you today a layout that I made of my little Roxy. It is a recent photo of her  that I insisted taking because she looked so cute that day. :) I wanted to do some inking and and playing around with masking paste on this layout. I usually dont get to messy with my layouts bit it was fun. The title came to me becasue she has been wearing her levi's blue jean shorts quite a bit lately. 

Here is a closer view of lots of diecuts and flowers.

More flowers and a little inking and painting. 

Thanks for stopping by...Happy Mother's Day!

Silver Anniversary *TSTR # 165 Totally Textured*

Good Morning my scrappy friends! Today, I want to share with you a card that I made for 
The Shabby Tea Room #165 "Totally Textured"  I was so honored by Debbie to Guest Design for this week using the inspirational photo below. We were also to add dry embossing and stitching. I used grey cardstock and embossed it with my favorite embossing folder. The stitching is faux using a white signo marker....someday I hope to learn how to sew... :)
The theme for my card is Silver Anniversary. I chose it because my 25th anniversary is coming up this July! Did time go or what! My husband and I are planning a trip in July....we have a couple places in mind...still thinking on where we want to go for sure though. 

Lots of layers like all the blankets in the photo. I also added two different laces and silver pearls throughout. The tiny roses, doilies and white leaves are from Cheery Lynn. All the chipboard pieces are from Donna Salazar. I decided to leave them plain to resemble the wicker basket in the photo. The larger roses are from prima...I just happened to have exactly two grey ones...perfect!

The stripped paper is from Donna Salazar's paper collection. I loved that it was grey and had the stripes to match the blanket right in the center, which was my focus for the color theme. 

Here is the wonderful photo that helped me create this Silver Anniversary card today. Thank you!

Well, thanks for stopping by and I cant wait till my 25th anniversary on the 25th of July...
wait isn't that like a golden birthday too? lol
Have a great day!

Vintage Halloween Mini Album *First You Tube Video*

Hello everyone! I know it has been a while since I last posted. Sorry about that....I made this Vintage Halloween Mini Album last weekend and I really wanted to make my very first video tutorial to go with it...let me tell you it sure was a learning experience. I bought a tripod and then trying to talk somewhat like a normal person was tricky for me too. I need to work on my lighting more but for my first video, it was not as bad as a thought? So here is a photo of the cover of my mini....lots of black orange and creams. 

Here is a couple of sneak peaks.... 

Lots of fun tags and embellishments....

So here it goes the premiere of my first You Tube Video....hope you enjoy! 

Thanks for watching!
