Simple Beauty

I was SO excited when I saw this new book created by Heart Of Texas!  Inspired by Pam at Heart of Texas creations… I created this flip book with the Tim Holtz Wildflower paper collection.  It is perfect for so many types of photos.  You will completely construct this album.  In this class/kit you will receive a sheet of each of the Wildflower Collection, Tim Holtz Thrift Shop Ephemera pack and Tim Holtz small talk.. so much product to make this your own special album.

Please bring to class:
basic kit
brown ink for distressing
scor-board (if you have one)
bone folder
scor-tape – suggest 5/8, 1/2, 1/4 (this is very important for making the album)
ruler (Tim Holtz ruler is best)

Aussie Vacation! Picture Heavy

Happy Memorial Day!

First, a thank you to all the men and women who have served our county with great honor to keep us safe and free , a heartfelt thank you. May God bless America!

Now that summer is officially here I am ready for vacation! A couple of years ago we took the trip of a lifetime to visit my daughter in Australia. I have over 2000 pictures! That is a massive scrapbook! I really wanted something to put on my coffee table to share some of the highlights of our trip and the Heart of Texas Big Vacation album fit the need. It is a variety of fun shapes and can hold a ton of pictures. So here are a few highlights from our time in Sydney...

I used the Tim Holtz Custom Metal Knobs... isn't it cool? The letters are from Maya Road, colored with my Copics and then topped with Glossy Accents.

I used a couple of different travel lines throughout the book... Authentique Abroad and Now Boarding by Kaiserkraft.




I really had a great time putting this book together. It will be at The Crafty Scrapper if you would like to see it in person!

Puppy Love Layout

Hello everyone! It's Gena and I wanted to share a sweet layout I made of my baby girl Daisy! Isn't she beautiful?

I used the new pet line from BoBunny, Happy Tails. As most of you know, I love sketches, so I found one that I liked and started to create.

I used the paper to create individual embellishments. One of the tags even has her name already printed on there, but there are also plenty blank ones that you could stamp your fur-baby's name on there.

I also used my border punched to add a little flair.

Thanks for stopping by... hope to see you soon at The Crafty Scrapper!

Altered Paintbrush Swap

Hi everyone! I wanted to share a fun altered project I did for a swap that I was in... we did altered paint brushes! How fun is that?? Here is a picture of the one I created.
My partner said she liked vintage 50's and these are the colors that came to mind. They were a little bright but I just went with it and I LOVED the result. It was fun and it definitely made me go out of my box! Thanks for stopping by! Gena

Always & 4ever

Hi everyone! Today I wanted to share a simple album I created with the Pebbles Valentine line Yours Truly. Each page simply highlights someone I love!
I used some of my favorite dies on the front of the book... the Tim Holtz Word Play and the rosette die. The wood doily is from Maya Road.
On my girls page I added just a flower a some buttons to add a little girly touch.
On my boys page I added this border with metal brads down the edge... it helps to add a masculine feel.
I hope you will come by The Crafty Scrapper and see the rest of the book and pick up the supplies to make yourself a fun book of those you love!
