this has been hanging in the store for a month and it has been a huge HIT!!!  It is super simple to make and would look great on a fireplace or across a door frame.  I simply cut chipboard to 2"x3.5" then covered with Christmas Pattern paper and some graphic images (BoBunny Christmas line from last year), I punched two eyelets at top of chipboard banner to string twine through.  Once chipboard is covered I added letters (K&Co product) and holly.  Holly was made with sizzix die and green cardstock, I also used distress stickles on holly to add glimmer.  The final touch is using alcohol ink on Tim Holtz light bulbs from ideaology line to color bulbs, string all together and TADA.

faux clock

I am in love with this new project i created using printer paper, 7 gypsies metal accents, Scrap FX chipboard, and Tim Holtz curio knobs.  After the whole is together i mod podged so it can be dusted and the glue won't let go.  It is on a 12"x36" canvas and i cut out a portion to get more dimension.

Scrapbook outside the box or rather make a box

This project was made using chipboard covered with Bo Bunny Et Cetera paper collection, Kaisercraft wood flourishes, 7 Gypsies metal corners, and Prima Marketing Flowers.
After I assembled the gazebo I painted with Mod Ponge to protect paper and make for easier dusting.

stupid passwords

everything now a days has a password, it needs to - contain a least one capital and one digit now you are not suppose to use the same password twice and you are not suppose to write it down or use something that is related to you like a birthday, child's name phone number etc...  How the hell is anyone suppose to remember all those bloody passwords since you need one to log on to banking, shopping online, wholesale ordering etc...  Does this drive anyone else crazy!!!

Now that the rant is over on to the next rant WHERE IS MY NEW STOCK!!!  i want it here now i have dones of ideas and no material!!!!!  Of course i looked up the tracking and one box is on its way but the other is lost in the land of purolator.  Purolator doesn't seem to understand i have paid for the stock but can't get anything in return until it shows up at my door, and it would be great if showed up together rather than getting only part of it while the other box is in the world of lost parcels.  (just like the other sock)

WOW a blog is a great way to get stuff off your chest who knew?

I am back from holidays and feeling more creative then every.  I took tons of pictures to scrapbook and my kid playing at the beach and park, and of course peeling where else and whenever the need strikes.  PROBLEM: all the pictures i took are summer pictures and i am Christmas Mod since i need to have examples up at the end of September in order to sell the classes by November.  The ideas are flowing so now i am ordering material and waiting for preorders to come in with new Christmas stock!!!  Look out for some new ideas and home decor items!!!

Anyone who has taken my classes and seen my pages know i am not a fan of using cardstock but in this layout i used bleach, distress ink, and embossing powder to customize the plain cardstock.  Check out my little man could he be any cuter

here we go

Alright i am offically going to start this blog, hopefully one day i will have followers.  This blog is going to become my new website, so i will no longer need a web designer.  As i get the hang of blogging i will be posting kits and projects for scrapbooking and home decor kits for the at home crafter.  I worked on a really interesting project this weekend it will be my first kit for sale, just need to figure out how to get the paypal and shipping set up, so bear with me it is worth the wait.
