Photo wallet project

Hey there! I've been creating like mad, but I just realized I haven't posted any of my projects here in a while. Oops! So I guess it's time to rectify that...

I found this fun photo wallet tutorial over at Splitcoast Stampers. They have so many fun project ideas on their site. Here is how my first photo wallet turned out...

I made it using Indian Summer by Trixie Scraps:


I really love how it turned out, so I decided to make another, more girly photo wallet. This time I used Cherry Sweet by Kristin Cronin-Barrow. I still have to add the journaling on the inside flaps of this one.


This is a simple, cute project that would make a great little gift for a grandparent or another favorite friend or relative. Give it a try!

Have a great week!

Hybrid clipboard and a few layouts...

I've been busy working on more CT projects... here are the latest:

The first two layouts use School Girl Crush by simply.scraps. This kit is so much fun, I love the bright colors and unique elements...





This layout uses Frank the Frog by simply.scraps, you can find it here. Scroll down a couple posts to see another layout I made with this cute kit...



And finally, here is my first project as a CT member for Kristin Cronin-Barrow. I decorated this mini clipboard using some beautiful papers and elements from the kit All About Her...

So cute, isn't it?! My daughter saw it and immediately claimed it as her own.


That's it for now, but I'm sure I'll have more to post soon!

Pinch me... I must be dreaming!

Well, the official announcement has been made, so I can let the cat out of the bag! Last week, Kristin Cronin-Barrow announced that she was having a CT call, so I decided to apply on a whim. I couldn't let it pass by without at least giving it a try, because I am absolutely in love with all of Kristin's designs! Well, guess what?! I made it!!!!! I am still in shock...

I will be doing hybrid projects as part of the KCB Crew. I will be posting my creations here soon!

My lastest projects...

I finished up a few CT projects this week, so I thought I'd share them here. I am doing hybrid projects for two teams now, and I am having so much fun with it! The first project I did was a little book to jot down all the things I am thankful for in life. I call it my Book of Blessings...

I used Autumn Spice by Penny Springmann, now available at Penny's Miscellany or SSD. This kit is just gorgeous!



Then next project was a few little Halloween treat packages using the fun and funky Cute Lil' Punkin by Trixie Scraps, which is available at ScrapMatters. I made a couple matchbook treat holders and a candy bar pull treat. You can find the tutorial for the pull treat here.



I also did this layout using the adorable Frank the Frog by simply.scraps. You can pick up the elements, papers, and alpha for just $1.00 each during the Gotta Grab It Event at Gotta Pixel, which runs today throught 10/13.


Thanks for stopping by... have a great weekend!
