Fun Bulletin Boards

These are the cutest frames that I picked up at Walmart 2 for $5! I took and altered them into corkboards by taking out the plastic and adding the cork. Then I just simply decorated them with ribbon and used build a brads for the push pins. This would make a great little girl gift idea or be great to have your customers make at a Stamp camp. These frames also came in fushia pink and white. So stinkin cute! :)

These mini coaster albums are quite fun and easy to make. I found the pattern online you need the following to complete:
2 pieces of 4 x 10 cardstock for outside cover, one of the sheets I used designer paper the other is cardstock.
2 pieces of 3x12 cardstock for inside
accordian fold for photos. Fold these
in increments of 3inches to get the accordian fold. You also need 15 inches of ribbon for outside cover and 2 pieces of 8 inches for inside accordian ribbon. I attached all pieces with Mono adhesive, you want to use something strong otherwise your book may not stay together. When
you have completed the book embellish it as you wish and add photos.
Something I have yet to accomplish! Have fun!

Baby Shower

I am off to a Baby shower today at noon, and so I had to get out my vintage stamps and make the expectant mom some thank you cards.
The stamp is from Impress and the ink is Fawn also by Impress. The tin is covered with Sky Blue Designer paper, the paper is Confetti, both by SU!. I miss this little stage..... aahh.

Welcome sign

Made this Welcome sign with some MDF board, vinyl flourish design and
black matte welcome expression.
I began by painting the MDF board with latex oatmeal colored paint by Behr. Let it dry and added dry brushing with arcylic burnt umber paint. Let dry and add the vinyl expressions. Wa La! Love it!

Marbled tiles...

I know! it is hard to tell by the photo but these are marbled tiles from your local hardware store! The one of the girls is a photo of them that I copied onto vellum paper and then adhered to the tile with modge podge and then added the love rub on. The tea
cup is stamped with stazon timber brown ink right on the tile and then colored with pink chalks and then set
with polyurothene spray. Very simple project and quite inexpensive
