New Mini Album using Romance Novel papers

I haven't blogged in quite awhile, mostly because I'm not on any DTs right now and so I've been really cutting back on my crafting.  I saw a beautiful mini album by So Much Scrap on youtube and couldn't resist.  So using her tutorial I decided to try my hand at this little mini.  I ran out and bought two pads of 6x6 Prima Romance Novel paper and went to work!  I don't have a lot of detailed pics because posting this was an after thougth. I have already packaged this little beauty up and mailed it to my wonderful sister in law.  I hope it brings her as much joy when she sees it as it did me.

So there you have it. Thanks for looking and if you want to see the original designer's mini album you can find it here on YouTube

Up up and away!

I just wanted to take a few minutes and share with you some birthday cards I made using some cute Lori Whitlock files from the Silhouette Store.

After the first one, these cards go together as fast as you can pick out matching papers!  I have to admit the first one had me a little stumped until I just cut everything out and having the actual paper in front of me was so much easier to visualize.

They come with these cute little matching envelopes too.  I used my favorite CTMH Birthday saying stamp on the inside before I closed them up.  Oh I didn't mention hey are free standing?  That's right they stand upall by themselves on a base.

Thanks for stopping by!  Happy scrappin!

Krazy Crafting Crew May Blog Hop

You should have just come from Paula's blog at, if not you really want to start the hop from the beginning with our hostess Jearise who has a little something special for you hopping along with us today!

Welcome to our Mod Podge Hop brought to you by our Krazy Crafting Crew. We are an independent hop team that enjoys sharing our work with everyone and hope to inspire you with new ideas for you own creativity. We are a team who loves to do all different themes, such as cards, layouts, 3D projects and so much more. We do all the paper crafting from traditional to digital. Mostly traditional, every now and then there may be a little mixed media too!

Now on to some fun.
For my project this month I tried something I've been dying to do, an ALTERED CLIPBOARD.  How does this fit into the theme this month you may be wondering, well.....The background of this clipboard is paper.  I measured the clipboard, cut some matching papers applied Mod Podge to the backs of all the papers and "glued" them to the clipboard. Then for added adhesion and protection I did several layers of Mod Podge over the entire clipboard.  I then added a few little embellishments and voila! I now have a perfectly adorable note center for our trailer!

This flashlight is actually a clothespin for holding a little note

This corkboard I found in the scrapbooking paper section. 

I hope you enjoyed my project today and tackle one of these yourself!  This is my last post as a member of the Krazy Crafting Crew. I want to thank each and everyone of you for allowing these little intrusions into your life each month.  I hope you continue to follow my blog to see my occasional postings from time to time!
Now on to the next fantastic project using Mod Podge......Christina

Krazy Crafting Crew March Hop

Welcome to this month's blog hop with The Krazy Crafting Crew!! This month we are making Tags, Bags, Boxes and whatever can be made 3D!!

 If you just came by to visit with me, thank you, but please start at the first stop with our hostess Janet.  If you have been hopping with us and came from Janet ( then you are at the right spot.

Janet is also offering a fantastic giveaway.

Close To My Heart Cloud Nine Cardmaking Kit.
 Includes card bases, envelopes, cardstock, double sided paper,
 a stamp set, and washi tape, glitter tape
 and other embellishments to make 10 cards
! Valued at $45.00! 

 You can win this by leaving comments on each blog, and if you're not currently a follower, why not follow the blogs because there's always fun in this group and a blog hop each month to inspire you!

Here's my creation for this month's hop:


They seemed to be all over the internet this past month
and I just had to try one.

Vans are from the Silhoutte store

It even folds flat and fits in an envelope!

Now my box card is very simple, but if you like the concept you should search for "box card" and you will find some that are really beautiful.  If you have a Silhouette cutter they now have these templates in their store, but at the time I made mine they didn't so I did all my cutting by hand following the instructions from Split Coast Stampers:  There are all kinds of videos, some with easier measurements, so shop around and find the one you are comfortable with!

**** UPDATE***  I was actually able to grab a few minutes and use the Silhouette template to make this card below.  It is SOO simple to make these with the template, no measuring  LOVE IT!

UPDATE!!!  I was able to whip up a box card from
the Silhouette store file!

This is a Lori Whitlock file 
Sorry for the messy last minute photos, but I was actually scrambling to get this one finished right before the hop. Once I went to close it I noticed the inserts were not perfectly lined up so they bowed a little, I'll be fixing that before I send this one off, but I wanted to show you the Silhouette file!

Thank you for stopping by and visiting with me today. Please leave us a comment and let us know how you like our hop!! Now hop on over to the next stop with Christina

Glass block
 I actually found these at Home Depot for only $2.98! For those of you who have bought these before
you know they usually are $12.99 at Hobby Lobby - so I bought up all they had!

These are the inserts it comes with. I wish they had the money slot
adapter, but  I can improvise when the time comes.

I then frosted the entire block with Rustoleum Frosted Glass

I then made a bow.  Yes! I made this, first time ever and I am so proud!!

Finished light!
