Timeless Portrait mini scrapbook tin

I love pinterest!  If you haven’t heard of it yet, then I think you may have been living under a rock because it seems to be ever so popular now.  I found this awesome idea to make a mini scrapbook tin after my mom told me she had saved a bunch of empty Altoids tins if I wanted to use them in a class.  So I took one home, and since it was already red and I didn’t want to paint it, I used the coordinating Timeless Portrait DSP to decorate it.  This has got to be my favorite DSP and I also love that there is coordinating fabric.  I’ve pulled out my sewing machine a couple times because of the designer fabric that Stampin’ Up sells.  I’ve got lots of ideas on stock, or should I say “pinned” because of Pinterest.  Here’s the tutorial I found for the mini scrapbook tin: Altered Altoid Tin Album by Sarah Willis

Cheerful Treat Tea & Candy Holder

I got this fabulous idea from fellow demonstrators who saw it demonstrated at Leadership/Regionals this past January, and one lovely demonstrator posted a super helpful video on how to create this cute little Tea & Cookie (in my case candy) holder.  Here’s the link to the video: Stampin’ with Nicki

I gave these to my class attendees last Saturday to thank them for attending 🙂

Every Last Detail Photo Tray

At convention this year there was an addition of some extra classes we had the option to take.  I squeezed in on the registration for this class right before it filled and though there wasn’t nearly enough time to do the project that night, I’ve finally (after 2-3 hours per night this week) have finished it!  There are lots of distressing techniques and extra details that I usually don’t add to my projects but I think they definitely make a difference!  The class was called Every Last Detail, and this is the photo tray we decorated.

Jewel Button Bracelet

Here’s another of my button bracelet color combinations.  Its the 2nd bracelet I’ve made.  I’m looking forward to making many more, they’ll make wonderful gifts 🙂  I used the Simply Adorned charm bracelet and Brights Designer buttons in Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive and Tempting turquoise.  It created a great gemstone color combo so I called it “jewel”.

To anyone interested, I have this bracelet for sale in my Artfire store and can make them in other colors as well.  Just contact me if you are interested in another color combination!
