Little One Mini Album ...using Divine Design June's Kit

Hello all! today I'm being really bad, I'm not supposed to show you guys this project until the reveal of the June Divine Design Kit but I figure most of you are off celebrating Memorial Day Weekend or simply enjoying your weekend. This kit is amazing the papers are so sweet and the embelishments, laces, buttons and ribbons are to DIE for! Enjoy the little treat and I will have a tutorial on how to create this mini album after the reveal...

Thanks for visiting!

On the Boardwalk

I can almost feel it, I know it will be here soon...I miss it, don't you? I miss the warmth of the sunshine touching my skin...Summer I wish you were here!
When people think of California they immediately think of sunshine, perfect weather and beaches, well that's not necessarily true in Northern California...I'm still wearing a heavy coat when I go to work. Yes, work that's one of the main reasons I have not been able to update my blog. But today with a little luck I'm bringing you a double layout of my two nieces. For this layout I used Graphic 45 papers, fish net from the dollar bin, Tim Holtz fragments and distressing inks, rub ons, star fish from Michaels and Tattered Angels Glimmer mist.

I admit it, this is not the type of layout that I usually make but it is a heart breaker one. My daughter loves that song and sings it with all her little heart. The songs lyrics are very powerful to me, because I know I won't be able to protect my babies everytime their little heart gets hurt and eventually I'll have to set them free...

For this layout I used goodies that my friends at American Crafts sent me...

Thanks for all the wonderful comments they mean a lot to me!

Project Runway...Melissa Frances Dresses/ Cards

When I was a little girl I remember wanting to be a fashion designer, but not just any type of fashion designer I wanted to design wedding gowns.  I decided to make a couple of cards in the shape of dresses using Melissa Frances Products such as: MF crepe paper, Vintage Posey paper and chipboard, MF pearls, Tim Holtz distressing inks, Tattered Angels, My own distressed bias tape, Cricut Expression, chipboard and Martha Stewart glitter.

Le Romance...Necklace.

I saw a video on youtube on how to use Tim Holtz fragment charms so that's what I did, using Graphic 45 left over from mi amore layout I created for Simply Scrapbooks. I also used Websters Pages lace and ribbon, Prima Marketing paper flowers,Making Memories key charm, Tim Holtz inks, beads and enclosures from Joanns.

Here is a quick tutorial:
1. Choose the fragment charms and trace them on to the paper you want to use
2. Cut the paper and make a hole at the top, apply glue to the paper and adhere to the fragment you choose. Let them air dry.
3. Create your chain by doubleling up...I did two loops one was 10 inches and the other 11 inches. Add your closures.
4. Bead your string making it 10.5 inches. Add jump rings to ether end. Attach to your chain.
5. Add your lace skip every 3 links. Tie a knot at both ends.
6. Add your tags (after they are completely dry)using large jump rings. Add the bow.
7. Altered the Prima flower by running it on top of Tim Holtz distressing inks, then spray with will notice a change on the color. Add a safety pin or if you have a pinback that will fit your flower use that..

Well I hope you have enjoyed this tutorial, it was so much fun!

Spring has sprung...

Before I began with my post I would like to thank all my readers for their support. As you can see I am in no way a writer I am simply a crafter who loves to create and make friends all over the world. Thank YOU for reading this blog...

On another note and looking at some beautiful spring flowers outside the window (not mine but my neighboors) I was inspired to make something pretty for my soon to be new but old scrapbook room. I used Shabby Chic fabric from Rachel Ashwell, lots of pretty stuff from Melissa Frances, Webster's Pages, Tattered Angels, Tim Holtz, my Cricut and Storybook cartridge.  The picture quality is not the best I will try to re take them...
