Today I have another card to share for the fun new challenge feature over at Photo Play Paper, the Mix and Match Challenge. To play along, simply pull out your Photo Play collection kits, and mix and match them into unique, one-of-a-kind creations, like my card here that combines the bohemian Rhapsody collection with the summer travel line, Boarding Pass.

August Guest Designer at Ruby Rock It

Hello, hello my Sweeties, and happy Friday!  I am so excited to say that I am up on the Ruby Rock It blog this week, as guest designer for the month of August. I made several fun projects with their adorable new summer release, Country Cookin’, and today I am happy to share the first of them here with you.

If you adore sweet, vintage things as much as I do, then I know you will absolutely fall in love with Country Cookin’. The colors and prints are so warm and cozy, and of course, with a name like Country Cookin’, you know this collection is chock full of fun old-timey kitchen images and icons. So for my first project, I played upon that theme to create a shabby chic, homespun cloth recipe book.

I love the idea of creating a special handmade recipe book to house my top favorite family recipes. Such a book would really become an heirloom to pass down the generations, or what a great gift idea this would be.

I’ve had this 5×7 linen art journaling book in my stash for quite some time, and I’m so happy to finally find the perfect use for it. I simply added a bit of ink to the cover to give it some age, then lightly stamped it with a large background stamp for a bit of extra detail before adding some papers, trims, die cuts, and sweet candy dots.

The inside pages were soooo easy to make, thanks to the large sheet of recipe and journaling cards.

I simply stitched the cards onto some background papers, then attached them to the recipe book using strong red-line adhesive.

So simple and easy, but so much fun!

The back cover was also inked and stamped, then dressed up with lots of pretty Country Cookin’ die cuts. I couldn’t resist trimming the kitchen closed sign from one of the smaller journaling cards, and hanging it off that cute kitchen mixer. That last little detail really makes me smile.

I’ve got more projects up on the Ruby Rock It blog, if you’d like to take a peek. And I’m also super excited to let you know that Ruby Rock It has generously donated a prize for me to offer to one of you….

LESSology *It’s a Wrap!* Alumni Designer

Have your heard? The LESSology challenge blog is turning ONE this month, and there’s a big party going on! Yvonne has come up with a fabulous challenge for us to play along with, and there are tons of creative ideas from the designers to be inspired by. I do hope you will come and join the fun!

This month’s challenge theme is called *It’s a Wrap*, and we are looking for creative ways to recycle and upcycle on all those gift wrap packages.

Missy Nik recently made a small electronics purchase that came with a nice, sturdy box just perfect for gift giving. Although the box had printing on it from the manufacturer, I knew I could cover that with a few coats of gesso. Then it was quick work to add a strip of box-pleated patterned paper trimmed with paper doily to the top and tie it all up with a piece of satin ribbon I had saved from a previous gift box.

I added a snowflake topper to the bow made from layered die cuts and strips of recycled corrugated cardboard. The topper is super easy to put together, and makes a great removable ornament that your gift recipient can enjoy for years to come.

Cute and easy! For more steps on creating my gift wrap and snowflake ornament, please visit the blog. And I hope you’ll play along with our special birthday challenge, because you KNOW that a birthday party means birthday presents, right? Here’s what you’ll be playing for this month.

And now how about a little giveaway….as a “thank you” for your support for the past year, Yvonne has put together the LESSology First Anniversary E-book  just for you. It contains 14 fantastic *It’s a Wrap* projects, with complete supply lists and links to all 14 contributors. You may choose to view it online OR download it to refer to at your own leisure. Enjoy!
Thanks so much for stopping by everyone!  And special thanks to Yvonne for having me as your guest designer on your first birthday anniversary! I’m off to the beach now for a weekend of scrappy happy. See you all soon!

Old Meets New

Good morning, my sweets! How are you all today? Did you have a nice weekend? Do lots of fun things? I know I did.  Truly just relaxed and put all work on the back shelf for a few days. I went to see Eat, Pray, Love yesterday, which I thoroughly enjoyed and recommend, and spent the day Saturday antiquing. Lovely, good times, all.

Today we have a new challenge to share with you at the Shabby Tea Room, called Old Meets New. Simply create a project using something old from your stash along with something new to you. Isn’t that a wonderful challenge? Gets you using some of those older goodies that you had to have, but have been hoarding forever. Something I really should do on a regular basis.

I made my card using a combination of old and new goodies from some of my favorite Webster’s Pages products. I used brand new papers from the newly released WonderFall line mixed with papers from two older lines, Nature’s Storybook and Postcards From Paris. I just adore how well the different collections from Webster’s work together.

The striped center panel, the green scalloped border, and the green and brown printed ruler strip all come from the new WonderFall collection. They pair beautifully with the brown background paper from Nature’s Storybook, and the fun hot air balloons from Postcards From Paris. I used another older Webster’s product on the center panel, as well. That journal page you see is from the 6×6 Vellum and Die Cuts package.

Our sponsor in the Tea Room is Deb’s Simple Treasures, who provided the Shabby Girls with seam binding ribbon to work with. One lucky winner this week will receive 6 yards of shabby seam binding along with a beautiful vintage perfume bottle rubber stamp graciously donated by Pattie Goldman from The Pampered Paper Patch

I used Deb’s Oatmeal Cream seam binding to created a layered bow. Dressed it up with a couple of Webster’s Vintage Sparklers as well as trim from the Garden Gala/Seaside Retreat collection. I created my sentiment on the computer, cutting my strip into a tab folder top for a bit of interest.

Thanks so much for stopping by to visit me! Hope you pop by the Shabby Tea Room to check out the rest of this week’s Old Meets New creations, and perhaps even play along with us. I would love to see what you all do. And tell me, my friends……

What did YOU do this weekend?


Hello Sweets! How are YOU today? We are good.  Enjoying our last few days of summer break and just hanging out.

I’m in a nesting mood still.  Wanting to clean up this house of mine and get it sparkling, all ready to start the Fall and a new school year with our best foot forward. Yesterday was window washing day.

Starting in the living room, I traveled all across the back of the house, around the corner into the sunroom, and finished up in the kitchen.

I ended up happy but tired, and I can tell you one thing for sure………

Nothing makes the outside of your windows look dirtier than cleaning the inside. 🙂

I wonder what today will bring? I haven’t decided yet.  Will it be polished appliances in the kitchen? Or perhaps some hand-mopped floors?  Maybe some more windows? There are always more windows! Tell me friends…….

What should I do today?

While I’m pondering my next cleaning project, I wanted to share with you all a little challenge contest the Webster’s Pages design team has cooked up for you.

For the month of August, the team has each created one project,  in 3 stages of simple, moderate, and complex design. We wanted to inspire scrappers of all levels, from beginners to experts, and share how easy it is to create beautiful projects using Webster’s Pages products. This is the idea behind our fabulous 1..2..3 contest at inspireME.

Here is a peek at my page.

Yummy Seaside Retreat Collection including patterned papers, 6×6 Petite Paper Pad, Deluxe Journaling Cards, Die-Cut Cardstock Phrase Stickers, and trim package.  I also included some Glittered Sparklers, Scalloped Sparklers, and Vintage Sparklers.

Just follow this link to see all the wonderful projects the team has created and choose ONE to use as inspiration for you. Scraplift your inspiration choice and load it in our gallery. The winner will receive their choice of ONE of our paper collections! Yippee!

So get crafting ladies!  I can’t wait to see what you come up with.

I think I’ve made my cleaning decision. Any guesses?? 🙂
