Later Alligator

I wanted to share this picture frame I made for my sons photo.  I bought this really simple wooden picture frame at Michaels for $ 1.50 and turned it into my Scrap frame.  You can create any theme and color combination based on the type of photo.

I used the K & Company Actopus to Zelephant Card Stock paper, Mod Podge to glue the paper down and some embellishments and bottons.  If you have any questions I would love to hear from you.

How I Stumbled into an Antique Sewing Machine

I wanted to share this wonderful story about how I came to finding and buying an antique Singer sewing machine.  

I have noticed for a while know that most ladies sew around there cards with a machine, and I happen to really like the effect it gives.  I don't own  a sewing machine nor do I know how to even use one but I was determined to find and learn how one worked.  I was not interested in getting a brand new one needed something that was basic and in expensive so I went into kijiji to find a used sewing machine.  Well, let me tell that where I found my lovely Singer. I bough it from a man named Henry and I would say he was in his late 60's if not maybe early 70's.  He told me that this was his mothers sewing machine and I guess he had no use for it and wanted to get something for it.  I went to see it and you know how people say it was love at first sight, yes that happened for me, it was love at first sight.  It was kept in such wonderful condition, and it works wonderfully.  I just have to learn how to use it.  The best part is, I only paid 35.00 for it.  I am very pleased and happy with it, know I have to learn how to use it :o)

This is Ms. Gagner's gift for being such a wonderful teacher.  We hope she enjoys it.

Note Card Box

Here is a 3"x3"  note card box I made, which is not finished yet.  This box holds mini note cards with envelopes.  I learned how to make this from the splitcoast stampers website and let me tell you this website is absolutely unbelievable.  

This is still an unfinished project cause I have to decorate the top and also make the mini note cards and the envelopes to go inside. So sat tuned for the finished result.

My Favorite Recipes Scrapbook

I am very excited to share some of my scrapbook recipe pages with you all.  I had so many loose paper of recipes in between my favorite cookbook .  I had some printed from the internet, some hand written from friends and family and some typed up.  Basically my recipes were scattered all around in a mess and needed major organizing so I decided to put together 8 x 8 recipe book made up of all my scrap papers.  This would be something that can pass onto my daughter and who know maybe even make its way to her daughter :o).  This is just some of the pages I completed and let me tell you it is not even close to being finished.  This is a project that will take some time so stay tuned for updates !!!
I hope you find it inspiring and have fun crafting...

A Thought I wanted to Share

With summer SLOWLY approaching I am going to find it very difficult to keep up with my blog. I will most definately try but if I don't please don't be upset with me :o) There are many weddings and social events coming our way and this means CARDS and lots of it. Right know I am focusing on Fathers day cards and trying to go masculine as all my cards to date have been very girly girl.

I have stepped into another world with all these crafts and let me tell you I am loving it and having so much fun. Every night I surf the internet for ideas and inspiration and every night I discover amazing people that have breath taking talents. My journey has just begun and I have very unique art work to share with you. Currently, it is in the thought process but I have all the tools to produce it.

Bird of Paradise Card

In dreams we catch glimpses of life larger than our own. 
I made this card using Tim Holtz Distress inks  and stamps.

To be all that is possible we must attempt the impossible.

Enjoy The Journey - Inspired by Tim Holtz

There is no limit or end to creating.  The journey is yours to take and let it take you anywhere you want to go.  Don't restrict your self to just one technique when there are so many to learn and enjoy.  The internet in absolutely a wonderful tool to search,  find and learn all the possibilities that are out there.

I have just discovered Tim Holtz and let me tell you I am in LOVE with his technique and products.  I have purchased all of his distress inks not to mention his visual artistry stamps.  

I am truly enjoying my journey and I hope you are to...

Hello Dear Friend #2

I made this card for last weeks stamping bella challenge.  I used Copic markers and Glossy Accents for the vase to add dimension to the image.  I really enjoy earth tones so this card was fun creating.  I just made 3 more cards using Tim Holtz technique with distress ink.  I can't wait to share the photos with you all so stay tuned for more unique and hand made with love cards.
