School House Rock

I was in the mood to make another envelope album and had a mixed collection of school themed papers and left over chipboard elements from the Crate Paper School Spirit Collection so this is what I came up with.

I drew and paper pieced the shcool house cover.  I think it turned out cute with all the apple tags and ribbon.  As usual the album turned out very CHUNKY!!  I can't seem to help myself even though I really do try :)

Thank you for looking.

A Little Early for Christmas?

I am getting caught up on the whole Holiday Season whirlwind.  I can't help it ... christmas advertising, commercials and decorating is starting to sprout up all around my town and I am getting that Holiday buzz LOL.

I went out and bought a TON OF embellies, paper, flowers and anything that I saw that was red and have started to make my Holiday items.

Here is my first!!

Autumn Leaves

I love the colors of Autumn .... orange, brown, gold but alas we don't get the seasons here in Florida.  We did get a little change when I lived in Cali but not like real Autumn.  

I am starting to feel the holidays so I decided to make an Autumn mini album and I really enjoyed embellishing it with leaves and my favorite colors.   I did add lots of texture using felt, yarn, corrugated  cardstock, sewing and layers.

For more pictures of the album click here.  I posted it on ebay.  Thanks for looking.

MPTH School Bus Album with Crate Paper

Geez, this took me alot longer than I had anticipated.  Usually I am a pretty fast scrapper but this album took me about a week, and still I have to put some finishing touches on it.  I need bigger zutter rings so gotta go shopping for that.  I should have known, I can't seem to make a flat album to save my life ...

So I designed this cute school bus cover, that alone took me 4 hours!!!  Once I have it totally finished the way I like it I will post the entire album on you tube.

I pretty much used up my entire kit on this album.  I still have a couple of rub-ons left and a few chipboard embellies.  I added some extra tags, a cute lunch bag,  ribbon and buttons of course.  The buttons look so cute hanging off the tags right?

I will post a link to you tube, once I have it up.  Thanks for looking.

Sticks, Buttons and My Paper Treehouse

Everyone that knows me .... knows that I love buttons!!  I almost always add buttons to my layouts or albums.  How did I become the button lady?  I inherited it from my mama.  My mom was a very talented lady, she could make anything out of yarn, paper or fabric.  My mom would make all our sweaters and dresses for my sisters and I. 

This is one of my prized possessions, I have it hanging in my scraproom to give me inspiration and to remind me of my mama.

My sister Rebecca made this for my Birthday.  My twin sisters are very talented, they turned out like Mom.

I had the white rose on a dress my mom made me in high school

The little elephant button use to be on one of daughter's sweaters that mom made for her

So when I received My Paper Treehouse kit I was challenged to use some popsicle  sticks that came in my kit.  Now this is why I love monthly kits ... I would never have thought of using sticks in my projects, but here I had some in my kit so I racked my brain and knew that I wanted to add buttons.

This is what I came up with.  Now this is just a seak peek because this album is taking longer than I originally thought so here is what I have done so far.

I made large tags that go into the pockets

I added my sticks which I painted and my fabric from my kit to decorate the tag "handle"

Of course I had to add some buttons

I took a break to show you what I have done so far, so I still have a couple hours till I have to run errands.  Back to work for me, I hope to have my album finished by tomorrow.  Keep checking back, and if you have any questions ... dont be shy.  Also check out my paper tree house online to buy the monthly kits.  This September kit is loaded with the Crate Paper School Spirit Collection.

A little altered

I have made a couple of these little altered canvases.  I like putting them on my studio wall as a little inspiration.  They also make great gifts!

This one is stamped with the words "You & Me"  and collaged with the Harmonie envolee printaniere collection.
