Recycle Project

Ok, so this is not exactly an original idea, although I have not seen it done this way...I love making quick little mini albums out of starbucks sleeves. I don't like to see that they came from Starbuck's though (this is where I haven't seen any like these before). The photos are to follow. I also made my own homemade version of the glimmering mist stuff...I'm calling it pixie puke (hey, I mixed this stuff up I can call it whatever I like lol!!!). Anyway...used up some of my Graphic45 paper scraps and here ya' go!


Tear apart the cup sleeve at the perf. sides.


Use your fav adhesive to stick paper to sleeve front and back.


Embellies away!


Finished project.


Tuesday, March 17, 2009


I feel so honored! I have actually had a project chosen as a "favorite" by someone at the badgirlskits.com message board where I hang out a lot. I know it may not be a big deal to some, but it's the first time I had something chosen by someone else there as a favorite (that I know of anyway... they just revamped the board so I guess one could have been chosen before now, but I don't think so. My stuff has been way more creative lately.
It's a box I made while I was trying out for the Grapich 45 DT. Here's some pics in case I haven't already asked you to look (LOL).

My Etsy!

Ok, so I've been wanting to do this for a while! I now have an Etsy store. Please forgive the bad lighting and the sad banner! I wanted one that I created myself and after (well I won't tell you how long, I just couldn't get my cute pic to go over to the banner) working for a while, I just went for the title. I will be putting up random things that I've made or put together so come on over. The felt flowers I have up now are really cute in person!

Pics of our Embellies!



Great Saturday! Finished a couple more pages for my gift books, picked one of the Sassafras Lass Michaels's exclusive packs yesterday with a 40% off coupon (YEAH COUPON!) And that allowed me to pick up the paper I have decided I HAD to have to work on my other friend Julie's baby gift...won't reaveal that for a while because she already knows about the blog. DH reminded me that I can't show off pages for gifts if the receivers might look on. Went scrappin' at my friend Theresa's house and we wound up making like 150 or so REALLY CUTE little flower embellies! I'll try to load some pics later. It is so much fun to scrap with a friend or a bunch of friends!! Later today (after my exam and other "responsible" things I need to do) I'm going to play with the home made glimmering spray recipe that I found online. Really excited about this as I've stayed away from anything glimmer mist related because of expense. ttfn

Friday Faves 03/13/09

So now that I have my own blog I get to play Friday Faves...I've been having trouble coming up with five, but I just woke up so forgive me.

1.My doggie Kayla is feeling better and that makes me want to do a happy dance!! The last three weeks she has been a little under the weather and we think it's all because she ate a pine cone (at least that's what we think it was. (Not all 3 weeks from the pine cone...she had two weeks worth of meds that added to her not feeling well apparently)


2. Battlestar Galactica (it's almost over and I frakking love it so frakking much!!) Haven't cried over a tv series this much in YEARS!!! Gets me almost every time!


3.My Little Shoebox Design Team call...didn't make Graphic 45 so I'm trying out again. Don't know why but this seems to be becoming something I'm a little obsessed over...but obsessions are good right??? LOL!!!


4. Spending today with DH. This is the only day in the week that we both have off right now...so we can go on a date, hang out, watch movies or whatever and I LOVE Friday for that!!


5. My new blog!!

Inaugural post

Today was kind of a busy and creative day for me. I woke up early to see DH and get my homework finished so I could have some "me" time. I got four LO's completed and two others are really close, just screaming for a couple of embellies.

This first LO is inspired by a sketch at badgirlskits.com.The last one is an 8x8 rather than a 12x12...I am making two gift albums right now. The pages that needed some embellie love will hopefully be done by tomorrow and I'll post them then.
