Note Pads from recycled boxes

Hi Folks,
Not sure if you are like me - but when I look at decorated cardboard boxes I think of how I can use it creatively!
Here I took a shoe box and cut it down to make note pads. Please peek at the video to see the front and the special back portion of the pads as well.

Here I took awesome printed boutique tissue boxes and cut them down to make note pads for favors at our upcoming cookout! Take a look at the video to see all the special prints!

thanks for visiting!

Chipboard Christmas album

Hi all, this is a album kit I have had forever. The paper and embellisments are from Me and My Big Ideas. (In the video I stated it was My Mind's Eye in error. Lack of sleep will do that to you!).

I inked all the edges and adheared the pages to chipboard using a glue stick. Tied on ribbon to the binder rings that I had in my stash.

Please see the video for more pictures of the album. Thanks for looking!

Doily card of love

I created this card a long time ago in anticipation of doing a workshop.
That seemed to fizzle so I sent this card to my daughter instead a few weeks back, just finally getting around to load it to my blog!

The card is a Z fold card where you take the front and fold it back on it's self.
All items are from SU!

I used a stencil version of the doily cut and sponged it to give the image the inside of the card. Love the rhinestones!

Flip Flops

I created these two card for my daughter and her friend. I drew out a flip flop and cut two templates to make the layers of the flip flop.
Using some craft foam pieces I cut out the layers in coordinating colors.
To the top layer I used my Crop-a-dile and punched three holes and added the ribbon.
My ATG glue gun was used to secured the ribbon ends to the back of the top layer and then to the bottom layer of the flip flops.

Running the base card through a couple different embossing folders to give it a summer feel as well. The sentiment I wrote with my markers and they are curved and raised on foam glue dots (you can't see that due to my picture).

Lots of fun and I have not worked with fun foam in quite some time.

6 x 4 mini album using Spellbinders dies

I recently bought this mega Spellbinders die, and when I measured the largest die was 4 x 6", I thought it would be perfect for a minialbum,
I used my Cinch to bind the edge and used Stampin' Up pattern paper to create the inner pages and medallion.

Please enjoy the video and have a great day!

Drawstring bag purse

When I saw this listed on FaveCrafts I just had to make it.

Beccy designed this to be created with leftover pieces of fabric and denim. While I have a lot of denim, I opted (for this one) to be lined with satin fabric.
It is so cute! and reminds me of my Vera Bradley cinches purses which they stopped making.

Took a couple hours and paying close attention to the straight lines to encase the ribbon pull as well at the strap.

Please enjoy the video and welcome feedback.
By the way, I am switching out the ribbon, it was all I had at the time.
