Tissue Paper Flower…

Since my pre­vi­ous flower tuto­r­ial was so pop­u­lar I thought I would make another one using the same Flower, Daisy #4 Sizzix Die. Hear­ing how much every­one enjoyed Sewing Pat­tern Flower Tuto­r­ial it cer­tainly made cre­at­ing the tuto­r­ial worth it as it is a bit time con­sum­ing. I love to share and hope­fully inspire so thanks to those that left com­ments and sent a per­sonal email. I really appre­ci­ate you tak­ing the time. Now on to this tuto­r­ial. I think this flower would be super sweet with a small office tag attached with a...

Sewing Pattern Flower Tutorial…

This super easy tuto­r­ial has so many pos­si­bil­i­ties. If you don’t have access to a sewing pat­tern you could sub­sti­tute it with cof­fee fil­ters, old book pages, vin­tage sheet music, wall­pa­per or pat­terned paper. If you cre­ate one I hope you share your fin­ished project. I would love to see how you use this flower. I think it would look great as a sweet pin for a hat or bag or as an embell­ish­ment for a card, lay­out or project. Such fun. Enjoy! Sup­plies Needed: Sewing Pat­tern (pur­chased mine at a Thrift Store for super cheap)...

Happy National Scrapbook Day…

Today I finally get to debut my “Vin­tage Sam­pler”. This is the first of many free online work­shops I plan to share. For those of you who do not know about this work­shop you can check it out here. Here is a lit­tle snip­pet of my thoughts behind the cre­ation of this project. I wanted to cre­ate a project that incor­po­rated items that reminded me of home as well as the strong fam­ily bond most of us share. I decided a vin­tage sam­pler would be the per­fect project to accom­plish this task. The let­ter “P” sym­bol­izes my fam­ily name,...

Yes­ter­day cer­tainly was one of those kinda days. Mother Nature is some­thing you don’t want to mess with and yes­ter­day she really hit Ft. Worth with severe thun­der­storms packed full of light­en­ing… my daugh­ter Terri’s super adorable apart­ment is now declared unlivable. Star-Telegram arti­cle My thoughts and prayers go out to the two fire­fight­ers that were injured. I hope they are doing okay and I thank them for their efforts. I will be away for a few days try­ing to help Terri sal­vage sen­ti­men­tal items. And just so you know...

I love great mail days…

I received some great pat­terned papers the other day. I love the Lit­tle Guy line by Melissa Frances. I think it is going to work per­fectly for my upcom­ing sum­mer work­shop. And the French Twist White and Cream Pearls are fabulous! If you have never ordered from Scrap-Diner you are miss­ing out on some great cus­tomer ser­vice. Sher­ine always gets her orders out fast and her ship­ping is excel­lent. Plus she always includes a lit­tle sweet thank you...

Happy Birthday Sweet Pea…

Happy Birthday Sweet Pea…

We are cel­e­brat­ing a big birth­day today. Terri turns 21 years old. I first saw this altered cup­cake box on Ranjini’s blog many many months ago. She found the cup­cake box at Tues­day Morn­ing. I imme­di­ately ran to ours to see if they had some and I got lucky. They had two left which I imme­di­ately grabbed as I knew I would be using them as money hold­ers for Terri’s 21st and Ansley’s Sweet 16 next year. The box is quite plain but has such poten­tial for alter­ing. The can­dle is held on by a mag­net although I attached mine to the top...

a lit­tle some­thing for National Scrap­book Day and thought I would share a sneak peek. It is a lit­tle vin­tage ephemera sam­pler and will be offered as a free online work­shop project May 2nd, for all who wish to make it.
