Just checking in to share some Love, Some Crafts & Some Findings
I have been Working Super hard trying to get my crafting juices flowing and it has been hard! I feel sad for my family, especially my husband as I am encroaching upon everyone's space with all of my craft stuff!! My DH is so sweet he won't say much of anything about all of my stuff being everywhere, but I know that it is beginning to work a nerve. I told him he could easily solve that problem by getting me that red two story barn portable that they have displayed at Lowe's. He just looks at me and smiles. Well anyway here is what I've came up with so far...at least I have items to put in my space at the Alamo Craft Co.
|Sweet Little house using my My Minds Eye Lost & Found paper.|
Recipe: Paper mache house - Hobby Lobby, MME- Lost & Found, rosettes-Recollections-Michael's, heart shaped keyhole-Tim Holtz, Cricut Banner- Birthday Bash, Prima lace...an assortment of buttons, organza ribbon, other embellishments and glitter.
Next "It's In The BAG" One of my favorite Items to create is the ordinary paper sandwich bags. There are so many different styles that you can make with these bags and I really enjoy embellishing them to my hearts content. Sometimes it is necessary for me to get out of my comfort zones of the pinks & whites and try something a little different. I totally fell for a wonderful alternative with the Echo Park line called "For The Record" This is an amazing ensemble of Red, yellow, greens, blues & white. There's even red and white polka dots! My Favorite design! I have chosen a few of the pages to share with you, but each page is generously decorated with fun embellies. I even used grunge paper ( Tim Holtz) and die cut a butterfly and crackle painted it white (4th pic.) This line also has some great die cuts which I have used throughout.
Here are a few cards that I also created this week, which I will be adding to my card collection at the craft mall. I am hoping that they don't stick around long...maybe someone might want to bless someone special with them...
|DP Fancy Pants line called The Girl's Paperie & $1 stamp from Michael's, corrugated heart w/crackled paint|
|DP - MME-Lost & Found|

Just a quick update on my class last Saturday....
I had a great time at The Scrapbooking Factory monthly retreat located in the Marriott at the RIM. I went in only expecting a class of two and ended up teaching a class of 9. I had a great time! Jane ( the owner) is expecting the new line of My Minds Eye (Lost & Found 2) Echo Park papers and more to come in soon. I Can't Wait!!! I am so excited, she knows that when that paper comes in and it's time to stock it in the store I am there! Take a peak at some of this paper she's expecting, it is absolutely GORGEOUS!!!
MY MINDS EYE BIRTHDAY BLOG HOP
LASTLY just wanted to let you know that My Minds Eye is having a fabulous Birthday Blog Hop Celebration with the opportunity to win one of each line of their paper and the new lines are gorgeous. I took about 30 to 45 minutes of my time today to play along. It wasn't time wasted I got an opportunity to visit 7 of their designers blogs and see the new lines of paper in action. You can check the details here but you only have until July 31st to play along...YOU CAN DO IT!!!
Well I'm signing off and I pray that each new day will bring an abundance of Blessings from the LORD above!!
