Baby Steps Layout

I haven't done a layout in so long, but I want to finish my daughter's first year album. I used my Cricut and the Baby steps Cartridge for this layout of my daughter taking her first steps. I added little ribbon bows to the shoes :)

Fairy in a Bottle. . .

I have always had a love for fairy's, so when I saw cynthialoowho and artedar make this,I knew I had to make one of many for myself. This one is a picture of my daughter Julia dressed up as Tinkerbell for halloween one year. I cut the picture out and used twigs to get it into the bottle. The bottom of the bottle has moss(found at michael's) and some tiny flowers and a leaf from Wild Orchid crafts. I used Tim Holtz's ribbon flowers at the bottom of the bottle, that I sprayed with Glimmer Mist. The button on top is also Tim Holtz and I added stickles in the center.I also added a little vile of fairy dust. Links below :)

Altered Photo Cube


This was inspired by nursetara04 on Youtube. I picked up my cube at acmoore and painted it black and I used Tim Holtz crackle paint and silver rub and buff. I also used the flowers from recollections, butterflies are from K and company and of course some bling. The little tickets are tim holtz and I used glimmer mist in Graphite and silver to distress them.This photo cube was made in memory of my Dad who has passed. Click on the picture to enlarge.

Valentine Mailbox

This was such a fun project to make!! It's a mailbox that I made for my daughter's teacher and her classmates. I constructed it all from chipboard and it is 12inches in height and 9 in depth, there should be plenty of room for valentine's day cards for all the students to exchange. For the closure I used a glass Tim Holtz knob, key hole with brads(with elastic cording) and bracket in the back . I used K and Company paper and Martha Stewart punch and some lace. I also used the Celebrate with Flourish cartridge nd my Cricut for the " Happy Valentine's Day" sign on the front of the mailbox. You can click on the pictures to enlarge.
