I Spy Design Eye

Hi!  Happy Friday again!  Been meaning to do this for a while.  This is my friend Debbie's blog.  We've been friends for so many years I've lost count.  She's one of the 3 reasons I scrapbook today.  Among her many talents she can design/redesign your home in no time.  If you ever need a consultation or have any questions about what to put where or what color to use with what, she's the one to call.   Check her out!!!

Wedding Layout

Hi!  Here's one of many wedding layouts I've made.  My inlaws wedding anniversary was this past January and I made them a beautiful album with all of their old pictures.  I missed a few pages so I'm working on them littley by little.  I hope to upload the entire book once I am done.  Enjoy!

The flowers on the bottom are felt.  It was quite a challenge putting that on.

Canvas Shadow Box

Happy Monday!  Hope you had a great weekend.  Here's a really cool project I made.  I went to a class at my local scrapbook store (Scrapbooks & Stuff).  Nana (the teacher/owner) is awesome and very talented.  Who'd of thought to use the back side of a canvas!  First thing I did was paint the sides and some of the insides with Distress Ink (Spiced Marmalade) by Tim Holtz.  Then i added the green strips of paper to form the border.  used a Martha Stewart punch for the scalloped edge.  The prima flowers were white and glimmer misted to give it that nice yellow/gold shimmer.  The tree on the inside is actually a fabric applique.  Who'd of known that you can iron it on to paper although it was a real pain in the butt to do.  I really love how this project came out and I hope to be making many more of these.
