The album is Kraft and was spotted with Hero Arts white dauber. 

Here is a selection of cards I made that go in the album ~

Try It Tuesday~Clear Scraps & Kaiser Crafts!!

Hi guys!
 to share with you  for Try It Tuesday!
  Combining these two make for a super cute mini album! 
Plus add a super cute baby in and it is a success!!

 I covered one side of the acrylic (another reason to love acrylic)with the Hello Sunshine
 Collection by Kaiser Crafts Zip Dry by Beacon was used to adhere the paper to the
 acrylic camera shaped pages.

The inside pages are embellished using the same paper pack by Kaiser Crafts.  The papers have many cute designs that can be cut out and used for embellishments.  It was a pleasure to work with Kaiser Crafts products!
Good time to try a mini album!!
 Thanks for stopping by~

Gone Junkin' Friday~ big and small treasures!

Hi guys!!
I have some big and small treasures to share with you.
  First the smalls~

The frog is the smallest one I have in my collection.  I paid $3 for this group.

a " little" stamp ~ so cute and perfect for a"little" in my family :)

This is pretty fabulous!! I paid $20.
Hubby is going to frame it out in old wood and I will hang it next to the board I measure
 ( the grands) on. Have I showed you that?  Very cool!!!
If your a kid and you come to my house you get measured :) 

These were Free!
They are pretty rough but will be great to use them to stamp on or alter.
I will use them some way!!

I pick these up when I find them at a good price.  This one was $1.
I use them on old canning jars ( that is what this is, old lid) ~ 
they are also good for a little dish.

I got these for 50 cents.  I use corks for my small hand carved stamps
 and little perfume bottles.
Have a great weekend!!
See ya soon~

Clear Scraps~ a tutorial!

Hi guys!!
I have a scrapbook page I did for Clear Scraps using the XL Dazed Shape .  It has the shape of a large postage stamp.  Very cool looking!!!
I wanted the clear to show, so I did it this way~

1. Remove the film from the front of the acrylic .  I always leave the back covered while I'm creating the page and then remove it when I'm finished.  No scratches that way.
2. Spray the front with Black irRESTible Texture Spray by Imagine Crafts. 
3. Let dry about 30 minutes. 
4. The middle strip of paper is 11 1/4" X 5".  I used the Hello Sunshine Collection by Kaiser Crafts.  Super cute!!!
5. Adhere the paper to the acrylic using Zip Dry by Beacon.
6. Embellish with cut outs and twine.
7. The two pumpkins are cut from acrylic sheets using the Tim Holtz Pumpkin Die.
8. Journal the information about the page.
Acrylic shaped scrapbooking pages look great displayed on a book stand and then later added to an album for storage.  Love the look acrylic gives!
Thanks for stopping by~

Epiphany Crafts and Heidi Swapp, great together!

 Hi guys! I have a couple of scrapbook pages I did using the, fabulous, Epiphany Crafts tools and some ,awesome, paper by Heidi Swapp.  The paper is called September Skies!
On this one, I used the EC round 25 bubble cap for the lens of the camera.  Works so great, same size as the lens.

 Also the, way cool, Chevron 25 bubble caps (pointing the way to "our happy place"). 

 I love these pictures, so much.  It is always fun to play in the rain :).
  These kids think so anyway!
On this one I used the EC round 14 bubble caps.  Kinda of reminded me of rain drops!
And I love that I can custom my own rain drops, any color I want:)

Loved working with these products!!!  Thank You!
Limked at~ Paper Issues
The perfect pairing with Epiphany Crafts
See ya soon~
