The Perfect Touch to a Make-n-Take

May 17, 2011

Back in February I took a little Make-n-Take at a booth at CHA.  I think it was for Ranger and it showed us how to use their dauber inks to die some tags and ribbon.  SO MUCH FUN!  Well I’ve been wanting to finish it off and recently found the time to do so. 


I used our GORGEOUS Want2Scrap™ Finesse Swirls in Black Rhinestone to finish the bottom edge and then added some inked book words to the top in a quote I found in one of my old books. 


I LOVE how it turned out! It will go great in my studio downstairs.  It doesn’t take much to bump up or finish off a project with little additions like BLING!

Thanks for looking!

Paris ATC

May 11, 2011

I have another little project to show for you today. This is an ATC that I did a while back for a swap I was in. I have to be honest, I almost didn’t send it.  I really like how it turned out! 


I used the packaging from one of my die purchases as well as some distress inks to give it that aged look.  The image I printed from online.  I think I’m going to have to redo this one so I have one for my house. It would be nice to do a series of these framed for my bathroom.  Hmmmm . . I may just do that!

Thanks for looking!


National Scrapbook Day . . . .

May 10, 2011

. . . . last weekend was a blast!  I actually found time to scrap and I even created a layout!  I had so much fun meeting new friends and blog hopping with Want2Scrap™ and a few others. It was a long overdue creative weekend and I can’t wait to get downstairs to my studio and do it again!

Here is a layout I did for the Big Picture’s Creative Crop Challenge #2 where you had to use 10 techniques and 10 different products. 


The background I created from a piece of cardstock using stamps, Glitter Mod Podge, tissue paper, Glimmer Mist, Paint and white wash to soften the look. I also used some Want2Scrap™ Pink Swirls, chipboard flourish, and some handmade flowers I made. The chipboard letters are from K & Company.

Here are a few close-ups:

I added a Want2Scrap™ 72 Count Pearl in white to the center of my flower and a few 72 Count Pink Rhinestones to the chipboard flourish too.


Here is a close-up of the background. I’ll be doing this technique again soon. It was so much fun and surprisingly easy to do. 

Thanks so much!
