Scrap Yourself

I just did my first layout for Scrap Yourself blog. I was working on it last night and it was so fun to have a challenge to scrap about. We are doing "scrap yourself for A-Z. I was assigned the letter "P" and this is what I came up with.
Its really cool to be apart of a scrapping design team I am inspired by all of them.

Shabby Picture Window

My sister in law asked me to Tia-ize this old window she got. I gladly accepted. She said she wanted to put some pictures in it of her beautiful family and so I found out the colors she wanted and went from there.

I gave it a bit of an older look by crackling it.

Added some flowers of course and some felt swirls.

"V" for Valentine.

This is my favorite part. I added a red key hole and hung an old metal key next to it. So super cute.

In the end I think she really liked it, now I will have to get some picture of it with her family pictures in it.

Craft Club project

I'm in a craft club and the members rotate host projects. So I've got Febuary and I picked this to be our project of the month. I found these frames at Ikea, they come in a pack of 5 and are acrylic, and then I dolled them up. I used two for my oldest girls room and the other three frames I put in an old window frame. The glass broke out of it a while ago and of course I wasn't just going to throw it away I knew I could come up with something...

I've been wanting to make my own button for my blog for a long time now and it always seemed like such a long process. So today I finally sat down and took the time to figure it out and I did. It is really really easy. If you've been wanting to make one check out this tutorial on how to do it, from cutest blog on the block.
Let me know how it goes :)

I love Valentine's day!!!

Stay tuned for a super cute Valentine's day blog giveaway!!!!

For a friend

My friends and I have a secret santa exchange and I made this for my friend. Let you know it was very hard to decide what to make her because she is very crafty herself and I really needed to step up my game. I don't know if she really likes it or not, I'm afraid to look around her house to see if it is up, but I totally understand if its not...its so hard to make things for her.

So I started off with a framed board that I found at Ben Franklin and then I painted it black and then covered the inside with paper and then I cut out random size squares and rectangles, destressed the edges. I added a strip or red velvet the I added the squares and rectangles to my liking and then some swirly felt. I tucked some swirls behind the squares too.

Then I Cricuted the letters and inked the edges in red and placed them on top, I used pop dots for dimension. I added wood scrolls to both top corners and viola!

Just some crafting...

This was done a Craft Club project taught by my friend Julie. It's made with mailing tubes, how clever!!

I made this from a very old cabinet door, the glass broke out of it and I didn't know what to do with it so I did this. You can add pictures in the frames, which I still need to do and then find some where to put it.

Just some cute Valentine's Day things...the mailbox I found a target in the dollar section and covered it with flowers, I though about using paper but i wanted to do something different. And the notebook and red frame is from Micheal's in the dollar section of course!!

Sealed With A Kiss

Pucker up baby!!! Just a layout I did to show off my cute girls!!

Valentine's Day banner

I made this cute Valentine's Day banner!!! I love Valentine's day...well I kind of have to, with the last name of Valentine!

Christmas present initials

Here are a few Initials I made for my friends' nieces and nephew. She just send me a photo of their room and I did the rest...cute huh?

Christmas presents

Okay I know these are being posted a little late, but love the way they turned out. I was asked by my friend to make a few Christmas present for some of her family members and I was so excited to do them. I made a sign for her daughter's room, Sienna, and a photo barn star for a present for someone in her family. What do you think??
