and a little Boo to you…

Oct 10, 2010

This “Boo” would make a perfect mask if you wanted to do so. I was being a bit lazy yesterday and didn’t want to drive to the craft store to purchase a wooden dowel but the “O’s” are perfect for eye openings. This chipboard shape is covered with Jenni Bowlin paper, outlined with Platinum Stickles then covered with Martha Stewart Crystal Coarse Glitter. I then accented the upper portion of the “B” with Maya Road embellishments and some seam binding.

Trick or Treat

Oct 7, 2010

I’m not one for scary Halloween… I like cute and whimsical Halloween so when I received these cute Jumbo Chipboard Shapes from Little Yellow Bicycle I knew just what I was going to do… cover them with Jenni Bowlin pattern papers and accent them with lots of Maya Road goodies. Today, I worked on this cute little pumpkin. Tomorrow, I will show you the ghost. I can’t make up my mind if I want to attach a dowel to the back and make it a pick, make a hanger out of a bow or just tuck them here and there around the house as they are… what do you think? Supplies Used: Little Yellow Bicycle Jumbo Chipboard Shapes ~ Pumpkin, Jenni Bowlin (Family Tree) Aunt Charlotte, Cousin Rose, Aunt Kathryn Patterned Papers, Jenni Bowlin...

A Gray Sky and some sprinkles…

Sep 2, 2010

means it is a perfect day to work in the scraproom and what better products to play with then Jenni Bowlin and Maya Road. I have to say I am in love with Jenni’s new paints ( have not tried the inks yet but I am certain I will love them as well) the colors match exactly with all her inspiring products. I still need a few more colors of her paints and ink which I will be purchasing soon. I gotta have them all. Once I finish this mini album it will be filled with cute photos of Ansley and her friends. As you can see I started out with a Maya Road 4″ binder album, painted it with Jenni’s new paints (Chili Powder “inside”, Lemon Drops and Malted Milk “outside”) and plan...

Summer Flowers

Having fun with paints

Jun 1, 2010

I have been playing around with a new style that is so funky and whimsical and I am really loving it. Painting seems to be less stressful on my shoulder so I am working in this medium for a bit. You will notice I still included my favorites… vintage ledger paper and sheet music as well as a beautiful vintage rhinestone button. It has been fun venturing outside of my comfort zone. The paints I used  are by Claudine Hellmuth and I think they are awesome. The colors are wonderful and the consistency of each bottle  is perfect. Her paints are super creamy. I used the end of my paintbrush to make the polka dots, a coffee mug to create the white circles, an old stencil I had for the numbers. A charcoal pencil...

A few new soldering projects

May 28, 2010

I was lucky to get Trisha Conlon to come to my house for a private soldering lesson this past Wednesday. She is so talented and has so many wonderful ideas. Trisha and I started brainstorming and came up with a super cool class idea that we are going to teach  together at The Crafty Scrapper. It will be down the road because first we have to get the idea out of our heads and to the table. All I can say is it will be an all day class that will incorporate both our styles and yes I have to say it again…. it is so super cool! Okay so on to what she taught me…. I love the shadow box type pendants and wanted to learn how to make them so badly. Well...

Heritage Pennant

May 17, 2010

This is one of my favorite photos of my Mom and her Mother. I am guessing this photo was taken around 1944. I think photo booth photos are the best. So wanting to be able to see this photo more often I decided to create a little heritage style pennant. Now I can display it however I wish. Tips, Techniques and Tutorials I had a super fun Saturday at The Crafty Scrapper. I took two soldering classes 101 and 201. Trisha is a great teacher. If you ever have a chance to take a class from her I suggest you do. You will be so happy you did. I will show you some of the charms I made later in the week. Have a great day.

Simpler Times…

Right now I feel a strong need to do some antique shopping. I want to find some more spools and add to my vintage paper stash. I love vintage papers of any kind.

But before I could even think about starting that boring task I wanted to create this little project that came to mind just before I fell off to sleep last night. I love the simplicity of it. So cute and certainly does remind me of simpler times. Tips, Techniques and...

I love small houses…

May 11, 2010

I could create an entire village out of this old fashioned putz style house. Really, there are so many wonderful ways to decorate this sweet little house. I have other patterns in my head to create as well but I wanted something simple this go around. I like the simplicity of the black paint against the old book page. Also the accented star… it’s a Texas thing in gold German glass glitter really adds a nice pop of color to the front. Oh and don’t forget the crystal coarse glitter, it adds the perfect amount of sparkle. Tips, Techniques and Tutorials I have been super busy creating some new technique classes to teach at The Crafty Scrapper in Waxahachie. My “Diamonds Are A Girl’s Best Friend” Technique Class will be taught June 12th at...

Mother’s Day Ornament/Tag

May 5, 2010

Here is an ornament/tag I created using an image from this vintage lady pdf. I LOVE these images and plan on creating a few more ornaments to attach to gift bags as needed. I always write a little note on the back of the tag for the recipient as I feel it adds such a personal touch to the gift. And I was really happy with how the rose looked on the tag too. I added a little creamy brown ink to distress it just a bit. I think it’s perfect. Those of you registered in my Tips, Techniques and Tutorials workshop, I will be posting the tutorial on how to recreate this soon. So be watching. Supplies Used: Maya Road Scroll Frames, Ledger Paper, Sheet Music, Platinum Stickles, Maya Road Chandelier Bead, Self...

Altered Prima Bottle

Mar 29, 2010

This looks so much prettier in person. I wish you could see all the sparkle. It is hard to photograph it well so that you can see the entire thing. Anyway, I had fun getting my fingers messy today. Not something I usually do as I am a super neat scrapper and have never liked having my hands dirty… never, ever, ever. And I passed that gene right on to my Sweet Pea Terri. That girl does not get dirty either. I wish I could have my son-in-law share with you the story of their first camping trip. He is a Saint is all I have to say, I have never laughed so hard! I hope you enjoy today’s project. Trying to think of something to make for tomorrow. I have a feeling it...

Altered Paper Mache Box

Mar 28, 2010

I tell ya cleaning out my scraproom has allowed me to find some things I had forgotten all about having. This paper mache butterfly box was stashed away deep down in a drawer and these bunny picks where hanging in a bag that had been pushed way back in the closet. Putting the two together sure did make for a super cute altered box. I’m so glad I found them. This is what the Rabbit looked like originally. I found these in the Easter section at JoAnns.
