Happy Fall Y'all

Today I have a Card Pouch for SplitCoast Stampers it was our Bi-Weekly Challenge over at Scrapadabadoo Crafts on FaceBook.

For my pouch I chose a Autumn Theme as I just love the fall time of the year.

Tried making a fence I guess it turned out okay my pumpkin is from Cuttlebug cutting embossing that pumpkin leaves are felt and I think from Paper Studio at Hobby Lobby.

The papers I used on this are some old Halloween papers I have had for ever card stock from Club Scrap not sure where the stamp came from small orange ribbon CTMH and the Autumn ribbon I have had quite awhile also.

Well probably won't be back until Tues having a movie night with my middle grand tomorrow night we are watching Fault in The Stars missed it at theater so I promised when it came out on video we would watch it together.

Until Tues...have a great week-end.

Love Gerbera Daisies

Happy Friday has your week been? Mine has been pretty busy as I take care of Olivia most nights during the week we have lots of slumber parties and what a joy she is to wake -up to every morning.

Well today I have a card I did using these beautiful Gerbera Daisies from Power Poppy I purchased the digital set and took a couple of liberties with it by cutting out the flowers and layering them, the verse is also from the same digi set.

I used Spellbinders dies for the frame, card stock is Club Scrap, designer paper is MAMBI- Renee, I colored my images with Copic's and Spectrum Noir markers....added a little bit of Stickles to the flowers and a brad on the twine....cropped the corners with the Stampin-Up Ticket punch.

Hope you have enjoyed this post and I am going to enter it in the Power Poppy Challenge.

This is a copy of the Digital set I ordered.

I would also like to enter my card in Word Art Wednesday Challenge #151- Anything Goes

Cabinet and Mini's

I sure hope I am not boring you with my mini albums but I just love making I have a cabinet that will hold 6 of these books plus 2 drawers for storing goodies or memorabilia in....the original made by Wendy Katts is called Tales From The  Tomb  and has double shelves and will hold 12 mini albums.

I will be using mine to document our ancestry for Olivia for when she gets older and wants to know about her family.

the cabinet was covered with Authentique's Flourish Collections as was the album.

everything on cover from the Flourish Collection

the inside pages and tags in the pockets are covered with Recollections Love Letters crazy about these papers as they are so vintage.

Good morning all hope your having a good week and enjoying the fall weather like we are here in Va. today I have another card done with the Bister's like this one so much better than the last one......and if you are looking for Bister look no further than I Brake For Stamps and you can get all 8 colors for 13.20 but if you use my code SAVE10BETH at checkout you will receive 10% off your entire order.....okay now for my card.

I have used two different sets of stamps on this card Half Sheet 137A and Florals and Leaves both sheets are from IBFS.

The first thing I did was make a wash with the Red, Blue and Green Bister crystals took a brush and painted the coloring on to my white card I sprinkled a few of the crystal in different areas of the paper and spritzed with water blotted with a paper towel than dried it with heat I added my stamps which BTW where stamped using Rangers Distressed Inks, Wild Honey Peeled Paint and Pine Needle.....that was adhered to a sheet of DCWV's La Creme paper and than another layer was added, wrapped some twine around my card added a little tag stamped with Thank You and added it all to a black card.

That will do it for me today hope to be back in a couple of days with a new scrapbook project I am working on.

Chest with Mini Album

Hello Peeps....have any plans for the week-end? Not me just going to be chillin at home.....Today I have a chest with an album in the bottom lots of picture's trying to keep them small....for starters this chest is pretty big about 12 x 12 inches and the album is an 8 x 8 or maybe a little larger and the tutorial was shared over at Scrapadabadoo Blog by Debi over at Dzzy Deb's Creative Chaos ....Debi has a wonderful tutorial and also a video on You Tube so please check her out.

Okay first I am going to share the chest the album is at the bottom with the handle isn't that cool looks like a drawer.
 Kept the decorating a little simple on this a few chip board pieces and cut some images from my paper to add to the top.

Had to show my hardware off on the side found those handles in my hubby's stash.

When you raise the lid you have this tray and under that still a little storage.

Now for the album.

I used mostly BO-Bunny Prairie Chic on this project in some places i used other companies as I ran out.

This is the envelope page which has magnets to keep it shut and opens to add a good size picture.

This page is really cool as you can see below those flaps open in all directions to add more pictures.

This is another pocket page with 3 pockets actually and plenty of storage for memento's pictures your choice.

The chest has mostly CTMH papers on the outside not sure of the name K&Co birds and butterflies and Bo-Bunny.

Thanks for stopping by today hope you have enjoyed my post and Debi thank you again for an awesome tutorial.

Flip Top Mini Mini

Good Sunday morning my friends hope you have been having a great week-end....can you believe 3 post in a row hope we don't get any snow......LOL.

Today I have a cute little mini that was designed by The Gentleman Crafter and you can still find the free tutorial for this HERE....I have had this stored away in my files for sometime and Friday I decided to make one of them.

on this little jewel I used the papers from Tattered Pages by DCWV....didn't have but one coin envelope so tore it apart and made me a template and made 10 of them....was pretty easy to do.
The pockets each have tags that pictures can be added to....definitely would make a nice little gift for a man.

Off to the zoo tomorrow taking Olivia will be her first trip there can't wait she loves animals..

So no post see you Tues.
