Envelope Flip Pocket Book - ScrappinGwen

OK it just awful of me because I received this a while ago and I am just now getting it on my blog. The reason being that I loved this so much I have been working non-stop to make one for a swap partner. Lame reason I know but..... wait until you see this! ScrappinGwen used a summer theme for me to add photos of Isadora and I simply love it! I can't wait to get photos in this. Thank you so much for making this for me!

If you want to make one you can find a great video here. The best part is you can really use any size envelope you have and you only need three.

Here are the pictures of the one she made me and I will have pictures of my first one soon!

Beaches and Paper Roses - Thank you!

I am so excited to share these adorable layouts that I received from Catherine on the MB. She sent me this Little Mermaid layout and the one below Pool Fun. Isadora immediately thought these were for her. lol I can't wait to add pictures to both of these. She also made some very pretty flowers and sent me the tag. I love the quote on the tag and I am going to use in the Isadora's album for sure! Thank you so much for the time you spent making these for me. I love everything.

Just a close up of one of the flowers so you can see how pretty it is. I am going to try to make some of these this weekend. Wish me luck!

Tim Holtz Dress Form Tags

I made these tags for a swap on the MB. I haven't received these back yet because there was trouble on the board. Big surprise there, however someone else has taken over the swap and she will be sending them back to everyone soon! I can't wait to get them. I love this die by the way and if you are thinking about buying it.....GET IT! I also used the Tattered Floral on the 2nd tags, and I love that die also.

For this tag I used little sheets of metal and put them through the cuttlebug for the stand, then for the dress form I used printable paper from a cd of vintage images that I have.
I used crackle paint on the stand for this one and the tattered floral die and glimmer mist for the tag.

Graphic 45 Vintage Box

I have to warn you I took lots of pictures of this box and the things I made to go in it. I had a great time working on this and simply love creating things using Graphic 45 paper. I am working on something else form a different line now and will have pictures of that soon. Ok so here is the box and the hand-made items I put inside it.
I got the box at the local craft store and it was designed to look like a vintage book. I thought it was really pretty so I decided to not cover the spine. These pictures didn't come out all that great but you can get the idea of how it looks like a book.

When you close the box it has magnets that catch. So I used a Tim Holtz knob to use to open and close it.

Here is the tag I made to hold stick pins and again this pictures isn't great but I took these and then shipped this off, so I didn't have time to check the pictures before I mailed it.
Here is the chunky charm I also sent.
This was the first easel card I have ever made and now I am hooked. I have made two more since. I have received this style of card several times and I always love them, so I thought I would take a shot at making one.
This is another of those little tins I have been altering and posting. This one was fairly simply but I was really happy with the finished product.

Thanks for looking. I had a great time working on these items!

SS7 RAK - Peachy

It wasn't long after I went to get the mail (and had the great package in the post below from Diane) today that the mailman came back to my front door. I am not sure what the deal was but he had a package he didn't leave the first time around. I guess maybe because it wouldn't fit in the box? Maybe because it is Monday? Maybe he just wanted to mess with me today? No clue, I am not sure. Anyway...I am really happy he decided to come back today. It was an amazing package from Peachy!!! I am sure that Isadora thought I was going crazy or something, I screamed a little, cried a little and ended up laughing a little. Peachy and I have the same favorite colors so I wasn't surprised when I opened the box and saw, black and white! This is where the screaming came. :)

She sent me "You've got mail" This awesome card holder with some cards in my favorite colors inside. I love the holder and the cards!!
Here are the cards. You can click on all these pictures to get a better look!

She also sent me "My Wish" metal embellishments in these adorable gift bags that she made. I think these are so cute and stuffed full of metal. I love it all!

Here is all the metal, look she even sent me paw prints and milk bones. Awesome!

This she sent me for "Overboard" and this is where the crying came in! lol I just want to say these pictures do not do this album justice. It is really, really beautiful, even more so in person. I love this and I am pretty sure I know what pictures I am going to put in here.

I love this paper....

For Ebony and Ivory she made this altered P hanger, This is so awesome, and the colors match my craft room perfectly. I love the TH paper, and vintage sheet music paper, inside and on the back. The stickpin and flower are beautiful.
This pictures doesn't show it well but this is another gift bag that she made and filled with rosettes in three sizes. Again, the pictures aren't great but the goodies are!
This she sent me off my wish list for "Mission Impossible" I can't wait to try some of this stuff out! So excited!
There was also a really nice note from Peachy and a bag of grudge board goodies! Also, I just realized I forgot to take a picture of the cute tags she for everything.
Peachy thank you so much for the time, effort and thought you put into making these things for me. I love them all and will cherish every item.

SS7 RAK - Diane

I was so suprised today when I went to the mail box and there was a package from Diane, she sent me "glitter" and I love it all! Thank you so much Diane. I love the glittery flowers, the iron on gems will work great with my IRock and the paper clip are great because they get stolen with all that glitter on them. lol Thank you Diane!
