What the heck?

I know you are wondering why the heck I am filming a skirt.  Well let me tell you.  The reason is to show that crafting potential is everywhere.  The tassels from this skirt will become the closure for a future mini album.  I love this skirt but the tassels don't work well for me so I am going to re-purpose them.  Why not.  I see crafting potential in virtually everything - probably why I use so many scraps!!!  Happy crafting.  See you soon.

Scrap Calendar


Good morning!!!  Scraps - we all have them, save them and are sometimes not sure what to do with them.  Well, I love using my scraps and tend to do a number of projects with them.  In an earlier post I had shared easy cards to make with scraps and today I am sharing my calendar - made totally from scraps.
That is truly how quick a scrap calendar can come together and here are some pictures of the months done so far.

I will add more pictures of the calendar as it comes together.  Have a great day and happy crafting.

Happy New Year!!!

Happy New Year everyone!!! I certainly hope you get spend some time today crafting!!! As many of you know - I have decided to build a series of mini albums for Christmas.  These will be brought out each Christmas and hold all of our treasured memories.  The first one I did was the Graphic 45 St. Nicholas album which I featured in an earlier post.  This is my second addition - using Carta Bella's Santa's Workshop collection. 
I hope you enjoy the video.  My plans this year are to include tutorials for the items I create.  Stay tuned, sit back and enjoy.

Wow it is hard to believe it has been a month since my last post.  Merry Christmas and Happy New Year eveyone.  Today, I am sharing with you a desk calendar I built for my brother for Christmas.  I used Graphic 45 Good Ol' Sport.  This gift came together quick and I am very pleased with how it turned out.  Hope you enjoy the show - although the December picture did not work out - the rest is here to see.

Quick and easy Christmas cards

Hello everyone.  I often hear people say what do you do with all your scraps?  Well I save them and then use them on cards!!  Here are few of the examples and a quick video.  I hope you enjoy and are inspired to use up your own scraps.  I even collect scraps from other crafters - possibly an addiction but I am okay with that lol.  Have a great day crafting everyone!!

St. Nicholas Mini Album

Here is a video of the mini album I made using Graphic 45's St. Nicholas collection.  I love this collection it has a great Santa face (most important) and just lends itself to soooo many things.  I am working on an assortment of Christmas albums that will become part of my yearly Christmas decorations.  Hope you enjoy - I loved making this.
