The Twinery } Polka Dot Challenge

Happy Friday there is a super fun challenge up over on The Twinery's all about Polka Dots.  Create something with some sort of polka dots!!

So you know since it's a challenge you can enter to win a prize.....what a great way to start off the weekend!

For my take I just got this super cute camera paper from Echo Park and thought i'm going to tie my twine in knots on the camera lens to give it a polka dot effect.

Here is a little close up....they are not smooth polka dots but they are dots :)

Supplies Used:
The Twinery Twine (Charcoal)
Xyron Adhesive
Echo Park pattern paper
Bazzill cardstock

Make sure you hop on over to The Twinery blog and check out the challenge and share your take on it with us.

All About A Boy Envelope Mini

Hey there everyone, just wanted to share a fun little envelope mini album that I created using Echo Park's All About A Boy line.

This line is super fun, I love the way the belt and denim add that little extra to the album.

Here is a little side view for you.  The denim is wrapped on the spine that is re-enforced with tyvek.  There is a belt on the front cover and the back cover.

A couple of the inside pages for you, TONS of pockets for photos and journaling and fun pull outs!

This album will be available on ebay later on today.  Here is a link to my ebay page HERE.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Teresa Collins Stationery Noted } Layout & Desktop Calendar

Good morning everyone, today i'm up on the Teresa Collins Design Team blog.  I created a layout using the wonderful new line Stationery Noted.

Here is a peak for you!  How fun is this flower?????  All of Teresa's new lines have these fun and funky flowers!  LOVE this line....the embellies , the washi tape, the paper.....oh I could just sit and look and touch it all day!! :)

This is the layout I created for the post this week.  It's a layout of my little pumpkin at Homecoming this past October.

This next project was something that I started working on, which was going to go in a different direction but wasn't working for what I needed. 

So I changed and created this one for fun :)  Won't this look simply fabulous on my scrap counter!  All of the Teresa Collins new lines you can find at The Scrapbooking Studio along with the SRM Stickers and Tim Holtz memo pin used on the frame below.

Supplies Used:

Xyron & Kaisercraft Team Up

Loving the Xyron and Kaisercraft combo!!!  This week the Xyron team got to create with some fun things from Kaisercraft.  Be sure to check out what the team has come up with HERE on the blog.

Up first for me is a fun little tag.  It's perfect to add to any card, album, or tie it on a gift bag. Loving all of the die cuts from this line, and those yummy flowers! A tag is the perfect size to use with you Xyron 510....makes it super easy to adhere the paper and embellies with ease!

Need a simple card to send a greeting to someone?  Here is an idea for you.

Last but not least is a mini album.  I used my Xyron Creatopia and ran the papers through it to adhere to the cover and the inside pages.

and the final project........

Don't you just love the rubons along the side of the book!!!

Well thanks to Kaisercraft for the fabulous goodies to create with!  Make sure you check out the BLOG all week for inspiration from the amazing Xyron DT!


Love Tags

Good morning everyone.  Over the next couple of weeks The Twinery has some super fabulous creations and ideas coming your way!  Today on the blog you will see tag ideas for Valentine's Day.  You can tie them on a gift bag, or simply put them on a box of chocolates for your sweetheart!

This first tag I used Blossom Twine up the side of my tag.  Once I was done inking and stamping my tag, I punched small holes along the side and simply ran the twine through the holes and tied it in a small knot at the top and bottom.

This next tag is simply perfect to place on top of a box of chocolates.  I used Pink Sorbert Twine from The Twinery and the Pink Paislee Valentine paper I grabbed at our LSS The Scrapbooking Studio.  They also carry The Twinery Twine in case you local girls are looking for it!

Thanks for stopping by today.  Make sure you hop on over to The Twinery blog and see what is going on there all week......did I mention there might be prizes!!!!!!
