Little Purse Mini Album

This mini purse album is from Creative Imaginations Bare Elements line. I misted the whole album with Lumin Arte Shimmer Mists. Then I used some of the Airy Fairy paper line from KaiserCraft to cover the front and back. I found the best way to cover the pages with paper is to cut out 5 inch circles, then cut the bottom of the circle off for a perfect fit with a slight border of the misted background showing. The font is from the Storybook Cricut cartridge and the wooden butterfly is from KaiserCraft.

Terre Haute Crop for the Cure

We had a lot of fun at the Terre Haute Crop for the Cure. I would like to thank Kae S. for inviting us to this event. There were so many people I had to take 3 different photos to show you the whole view. (sorry the pictures are so pixely, not sure what happened there) I would also like to thank Robin G. for helping at our booth all day.
Below, she is helping at the Make-N-Take table.
Congratulations to our door prize winner.There were 154 scrappers this year. Hopefully next year there will be even more. Join our email list to keep posted on this and other scrapbooking events in the area.

Crop for the Cure set up time

We are excited to join in the fun at the Terre Haute Crop for the Cure. We finally have our booth set up and we are ready for tomorrow. I can't wait for it all to begin.
We drove a car and a SUV full of stuff up for the event. Yes, my husband even got to stay and help set up. I hope this is how he wanted to spend his Friday night.

Here are a few photos of our booth.

We also set up a Make-N-Take table where scrappers can create a chipboard journaling tag.
Check back tomorrow evening for more pictures of this event.

What does your workspace look like?

Last night at the crop I took these photos of workspaces. What gets your creativity flowing?
Angel's crop space (off to the right) was nice and neat
because she was working on digital layouts.
Shelli's was too, for an entirely different reason. She is the most organized cropper I have seen. I keep trying to convince her to teach a class on scrapbook organizing tips.
That's a class I could use.

Make Your Own Accents

Here's a technique you can do at home. We will be using a hot glue gun to get creative. With a few easy steps you can customize your colors to fit the project your making. .In the layout below you can see a side border and my flower centers were created this way.

Start with a hot glue gun and a craft or Splat mat (heat resistant). Make drops of glue, any size you need, and let them dry. Don't worry about the strings of glue, you can tear them off after the glue dries.Next, put a couple of dried glue dots in a baggie and add a few drops of alcohol ink (you waste less if you work in the corner of the bag). Shimmerz paints also work great to paint these little droplets.

When your ready to attach them you can either use Zots or reactivate the hot glue by touching the back of your dot with the metal tip of your glue gun (if you choose this one, work fast before the glue dries again.)

Below you can see I used the same technique on a card that I made.
