It was time to organize

Well My mom went into our shared scrapbook room, which for the past couple months she hasn't stepped into and stated she had no idea where anything was. Well the last time I organized I kinda hide most of her stuff because frankly she is a messy person she leaves things out and then when she does look for something she doesn't take the two seconds of time to put whatever she pulled out back where it belongs. Don't get me wrong I'm not a neat crafter. When I'm working on a project I have stuff everywhere, but I only let a day go by before putting all the supplies away. Anyway due to her comment I went it there this morning because I didn't really have anything to do

and started the process. I moved things around so they made more sense. Figured out what I wanted to help the space some more went shopping for curtains (I found nothing I liked), a shelf and a cork board and a lamp for my bed room. I went to micheal's and did something amazing I walked by the scrapbook section and went to the wood aisle and found three shelves for $15 and had a 50% coupon so I got them for $8.

Went to target got my cork board and lamp and something for dinner and came home to start back in my scrapbook room. I only painted one of the shelves because I want to use crackle paint and don't have enough for the other two. So I painted a shelf, put a button boarder on my chalkboard, make my own pretty tacs using K&Company brads and organized most of the room. I'm pretty proud of myself. Pin It Now!

Minnie and me

This is another layout that I completed over the weekend. I was excited to do this one so excited I bought the Mickey Mouse gems about a month ago thinking I developed the picture with my last batch of pictures. I was highly disappointed when I found out I didn't, but it worked out and I created a pretty good layout.

Materials: Patterned paper (sandlion, Making memories), Stickles and paint (ranger), Ribbon and thread (unknown), Gems and punch (EK success), Cardstock (unknown and Bazzil), Letters (Cricut Jasmine)

Actually Scrapbooking

Well I have been very busy over the last couple of days getting ready for a Labor day picnic my mom was having on Saturday, but I had gotten some new pictures to play with and yesterday I had the day to work for the most part undistrubed in my scrapbook room. So I put some finishing touches on some layouts that I will show at a later time and started and finished this layout of my last ATC group gathering. I took inspiration from the group and what its about to create this layout. The vintage looking paper, the vintage ribbons, the over all feeling of friendship and that feeling I get from creating something for the group ( I used the title and the crowns to demonstrate that). So here are the Queens of the Vintage Room. A wonderful group of ladies that have accepted me as an artist and a friend. They are a truly amazing group of women. I can't wait to see then later this month.

Products used: Patterned paper (prima marketing), vintage buttons (unknown), Vintage Ribbon (unknown), Key, metal butterfly, paper embellishment, gold bird(making memories), Mini Masks, distress inks, distress stickles, grundge board letters, metal "altered" charm (Tim Holtz), exopy stickers (unknown), Heart (chatterbox).
