Cheap Container for Embellies

I was walking through Michael's the other day and stumbled on the little favor tins in the wedding department. The are the same size as the tins that you find that they sell for way too much in the scrapbooking area by MM. Well guess what you can get 30 for $19.99 and if you use a coupon is will be even less! Pop your embellies in and stick them to a magnetic board! Just a little tip for the frugal scrapper.

DCWV Inchies

Have you seen the new DCWV Stacks? Well I got mine today and after looking through them all the front cover caught my eye.....they are just as pretty as the paper so I thought I have to do something with those. I recently discover the world of Inchies (1"x1" little squares), so I sat down and took the front cover of the LA CREME Stack and cut it into these little squares and created this card. How neat and green is that. Try it out I'm sure you will fall in love.

Azari's Word Book

This is a word book that I did for my Great-niece she was born 3 months premature but by God's Grace and Healing hands she is doing great! Her name is Azari and I hope she cherish this book when she gets older.
I've done a lot of techniques in this one ex. the tag was made using the clear packaging from some of my scrapping don't throw them out.

I've add lots of spaces where my niece can put pictures or journaling. The top flap is another clear packaging scrap that I used acrylic paint and my favorite white pen for the doodling.

Here I've used once again my clear scraps and ran it through the cuttlebug to emboss and added some acrylic paint to give it some definition and the tag slips right behind it!

Here's a close up of the embossing and the tag all in place.

This page actually has six mats for pictures. I've added a few embellies but still have to finish this one up.

Here's one flap.

Here' s the other flaps 4 are pictured and 2 are on the bottom for a total of 6 mats! I have one more page in the book to finish but I wanted to share because I just thought it is turning out so pretty.

This is a closeup of the flowers that I put on this page they were made by adding a quick stitch to a piece of ribbon and then pulled to make a ruffle at this point you can stitch the ends together. Add a brad and walah!
Here's a layout that I did of my DD Sabrina in here Grannie's kitchen sink. She looks like she's posing for a magazine cover. I did a lot of layering on this page and also some doodling. Added flowers and swirls using the Home Accent cricut cartridge.

This is a layout of my son deep in thought. Here are the steps

First choose coordinating colored papers, use Tim Holtz mask along with distress inks (I used pine needles and broken china).
Cut title using the cricut expression.
Mat your photo, use a few circle punch outs add some stiches and a lovely feather.

I'm just starting this but soon I will be adding a lot more layouts.

Thanks for stopping by and remember "When in doubt Bling it out!"
