Tweet Welcome Sign

Hello, this tweet Welcome sign is made from a chipboard house shape, My Mind's Eye patterned paper called "Ooh LaLa for Him" and chipboard label which I stamped "Welcome" on. I made the paper flowers, stamped the bird and leaves from a Hampton Arts clear stamps. Inked the edges with "Grey Flannel" CTMH ink. Added the cream satin ribbon for a hanger and added the tiny rhinestones to the label. This decorative sign will be listed at my etsy store here.

Repurpose Packaging Tutorial

Hello, wanted to share a project with you. I took the cardboard backing from a EK Success border punch that I bought. The floral pattern was so cute I came up with a way to repurpose it. The picture below shows you what I used to create a door knob sign: scissors, corner punch, pencil, modge podge, chipboard shape, alphabet stickers, two peices of cardstock, tracing paper, paper door sign. Also, not shown is a piece of scrap patterned paper.

First what I did was trace the parts of packaging that I wanted to cover with pink paper.

Next I cut out a piece of green paper to cover the back of the sign and then used the corner punch to make a scalloped edge on both sides. And glued it to the back of the sign.

Here, you can see I glued the green paper with scalloped edges to the back of the sign.

Then I glued the pink paper I cut out to the areas where I wanted to cover the writing. Leaving just the cute floral pattern exposed.
Then I took a piece of scrap patterned paper to glue on to the chipboard shape.

An lastly, add chipboard shape, stickers to spell out "My Room" and added some plastic dot thingies for shine. See the possiblities here, so much more could be added to personalized it!!

Love Bug Card

Hello! I was playing with my digi stamps again! Something you should try is using regular stamps with your digi stamps. If you look closely to the butterfly guy, I stamped the wings and hearts with a rubber stamp to give a unique design to them instead of just being plain.

So, today I went to get the mail and on my doorstep was a package from Better Homes and Garden Scrapbooks etc. I wasn't expecting anything. My husband said "what did you buy now?" I said "nothing." Well, to my surprise I must of won one of their sweepstakes!! I just subscribed to the magazine Scrapbooks etc and get their email newsletter.

You know whats funny is I use to be subscribed to Creating Keepsakes for about 4 or more years and always entered their sweepstakes and never won.
