                                                     Old Projects
These are two older projects I created. I came upon the pictures and thought I would post them since I haven't had time to create anything so far this week.

This scrapbook page is of my grandma (or mamawl) I believe the paper collection is Cosmo Cricketr. The butterflies were made with a Sizzlet from Stampin' Up. The lace and bling I received in a swap. My Grandma was beautiful! She passed away a couple of years ago-she was basically my mom...I miss her everyday!

The Pin cushion I altered from and old glass contaner given to me by a friend. I Mod Podged designer paper to the glass container, waited for it to dry over night and then inked it up a little. I filled the inside with poly fil and covered the top with  black fabric. To secure it in place I used black lace around the top and hot glue to secure it in place. I think the twill measuring tape finished it off nicely! All of the stick pins are handmade by me or other ladies from swaps at Your Paper Pantry.

Enjoy! Have a great day!

Lucky Me!

Holiday Book Text Wreaths

Recycled Book Wreaths!
These were so fun to make! First let me start out by saying I am book lover and the books used for these wreaths were well loved and bought from Goodwill! They are pretty simple to make! Pop in a good movie, heat up the glue gun and start rolling and glueing! I used A square piece of foam board to glue the rolled pages to, to form the wreath and then decorated them!

Altered Mouse Traps


Altered Mouse Trap

 You can truely alter anything!
 I made these for a swap I joined on Your Paper Pantry.
 For the steam punk version I used:
Graphic 45 paper, Tim Holtz elements and flowers from i am roses. For the middle of the flowers I used bead caps and just spreaded them out. Everything else I used came from my stash and lost its packaging long ago!
 For the sewing themed trap I used:
 Cosmo Cricket paper, shapes cut with my silhouette. I also dug through my ever growing button hoard/collection.
These can be used as memo holders for the fridge if you put magnets on the back. One of my favorite ideas is fastening 7 of these together and labeling them with the days of the week- I think that would make a great to do list/calander. Just google altered mouse traps you will be amazed!
