Paper Bag Mini Album

Hello everyone!

Today I decided to post my very first paper bag mini album that I created!

I created this as a part of a swap in which I participated (Paper Girls Swap). I wanted to learn how to make a paper bag album for a while, and joining this swap was the push that I needed to learn. 







I thought that it was going to be very difficult to create one. However, I was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was! I really enjoyed the process of creating this mini album and I know that I will be making many more in the near future! 

Thanks for stopping by! Come by tomorrow for more project inspiration!

Link Up for Pink 2013 - Day 8

Hi Everyone,

Unfortunately, I missed posting a project for day seven because I was working on paper work and lesson plans for school. But I was able to work on a quick project today for day eight of Link Up for Pink.

Here is my project!!!



I came across these mini clip boards about a month ago when visiting A.C. Moore. I decided to alter this with pink! 

The paper is a free digital background that I found on the internet. I printed it on white card stock. I painted the back and sides of the clipboard with pink acrylic paint. I mod podged the page to the board, then added a thin layer of mod podge to seal it. I added a pink ribbon around the bottom edge and at the top. I used some of the left over paper on a binder clip.

I hope that you like this project and all of the ones you have seen so far. Come back tomorrow to see my project for day nine of Link Up for Pink!

Link Up for Pink 2013 - Day 6

Welcome to my blog!!!

If you haven't noticed, I have decided to post one new project a day for fourteen days to coincide with Link Up for Pink. It's been a bit challenging trying to remember to post my projects, but thank goodness for pre-scheduled posts, lol.

Here is my project for day 6.




This is a very simple card. I colored this Tilda with Copic markers. The sentiment comes from My Pink Stamper (Hope and Courage). I used a bit of washi tape just to give it a bit more color. The background paper comes from Close to My Heart (Sweetheart paper pack).

Thanks for stopping by! Come back tomorrow to see my project for day 7!

Link Up for Pink 2013 - Day 5

Hi!!!

Here is my project for Day 5 of Link Up for Pink! Some of the projects that have been linked are simply amazing!

For today's project, I wanted to create something that wasn't a card or a tag. I got the idea to do something altered. I purchased a 3 1/2 inch cube from Michael's. Here's what it looks like!






I used Viva Decor Inka Gold around the edges of the block. I used paper from Close to My Heart (the Sweetheart paper pack). The images and sentiments all come from Unity Stamp Company (from three different stamp sets).

I really like the way this turned out! Although I smudged the ink a little, this turned out nicely. Note to myself, next time I will stamp first before putting a thing layer of mod podge to seal. That was actually my intention, but I totally forgot, lol!

Thanks for stopping by! Come back tomorrow to see my project for day six of Link Up for Pink

Link Up for Pink 2013 - Day 4

Hello everyone!

Today I decided to create a tag for Link Up for Pink! If you haven't linked up your project yet, you still have time!!



The tag is a manilla tag from Ink Essntials. I used distressed ink in Worn Lipstick to give the tag a little color. The background paper is from a K and Company paper pack. I colored this Tilda with my Copic markers. I'm not 100% happy with the coloring, but I think the tag is still cute. The sentiment comes from Unity Stamp Company.

Come back tomorrow for my project for Day 5!

Thanks for stopping by!!

Link Up for Pink 2013 - Day 3

Hi!!!

I've seen some amazing projects posted so far at Link Up for Pink! If you haven't posted yours yet, you still have time!

Here is my project for day 3!




The sentiment, corner stamp, and heart all come from Unity Stamp Company. I really like the way the stamps are made and they have many great sentiments!
The paper comes from the Chantilly paper pack from Close to My Heart. I'm using this paper a lot because of the bright colors (and because I am desperately trying to use up ALL the paper I have in my stash, lol! I think I don't really need to buy paper for another six months. But I know I'll see something on sale or extremely cute and want to have it!

I hope that you have like my projects so far. Come back tomorrow to see my project for day four! Thanks for stopping by! ♥

Link Up for Pink 2013 - Day 2


Hello everyone!!!

As promised, here is my project for day 2 of Link Up for Pink




I wanted to do something a little different. I have a few Tim Holtz stamps that I had not yet used. I decided that this hot air balloon would be appropriate! The sentiment Thanks for Lifting Me Up comes from the Unity Stamp Company. I inked the edges using distress ink in Worn Lipstick. The paper comes from the Chantilly paper pack from Close to My Heart (I believe this particular paper pack is now retired). I added some bling for just a little sparkle.The card is simple but the message is strong. ♥

Come back to visit my blog tomorrow to see my project for day 3 of Link Up for Pink! Thanks for stopping by!

Link Up for Pink 2013 - Day 1

Hello everyone!!!

Well school is in full swing and I have been noticeably absent from my blog. With that said, I have made it a point to make sure that I create items related to Breast Cancer Awareness Month with Just Yolie's Third Annual Link Up for Pink. You can find more info HERE!

You can also link up your project here on Diana's page. She is also hosting a link up party HERE!
I almost forgot to post my project as I was busy working on lesson plans for the next few days, but here is my project for day one of the link up. 




The stamps used are from the Kit of the Month stamp set from October 2011 called Faith, Hope, Love...Live by It. I really like this set and I really like the Unity Stamps!!! The paper comes from a retired paper set from Close to My Heart called Sweetheart.

Come back tomorrow for my project for day two of the fourteen days of Link Up for Pink!!!!!
