I wish..

Wouldn't it be nice to have a pro photographer to take pics of you craft projects? I think so..but I'll make do with some great sunlight and a tablecloth ;)

first up:
A gift box. The green pillow box and doily were bought at Love is in the Details. I love their giftwrapping line!!

This flower is very large and dimensional. To make it I punched large flowers from a variety of papers, cardstock, tissue papers etc, dipped each flower in water, scrunched then, dried them in the microwave, uncrumpled them and then stapled them together. I love all the different textures!

More projects to come in the next few days :)


Style Dilemma

Hi :)
Today I was asked to define my "scrapbooking style". What? Put a name to all the crazy, crafty stuff I do? That could be difficult, but I would have to say...clean, shabby chic. How would you define YOUR style??

TFL :)


design x2

I like to re-use my designs. I know, crazy right?? But it's true and it saves me lots of time.

I made this card:

And I liked the design so much that I made bookmarks using the same basic colour scheme and layout. (see below)

9 bookmarks made for my co-workers at my old job. (library...librarians...books....bookmarks...you get it lol)
I stamped, cut out, inked and stickled the edges of each butterfly.

Each bookmark is personalized with the first letter of each person's name. 
TFL!! :)
