Wallet/Coupon Holder

Happy Monday everyone! I just got back from the cities (Minneapolis/St.Paul) yesterday, it was a nice get away! Went to a frame moulding appreciation day, then shopped and ate the rest of the time. Fun to just get away!

Remember all those photos in my last post I was going to get scrapped, well a quick trip into town to get a few pieces of paper to get them done with, lead to this...

A little wallet/coupon holder. Ohhh how I love my Wendy (Studio490) stamps!!! I did this one up real quick, so will need to do another one and perfect it a little. I will be doing a class on these the middle of May. Needless to say I never got all those pictures scrapped! Will have to try find some time this week to work on them.

Thanks again everyone for all your nice comments! I appreciate them!!!!

Have a good one!

Tim Holtz on the edge die cut album

I got my album binded and added lace to the top, didn't want to put colored ribbon on it to take away from the album.

Thank you all so much for the nice comments!!! I really appreciate them!!! This was a really fun album to do! And Becky don't be jealous of the toys, I have totally gone overboard lately and need to cool my britches!!!

Here are some pics of the flower pins I have been making with Tim's Tattered Florals die cut. Lots of fun!

And yes, I'm going to try get these photos scrapbooked of the boys birthdays!!!!

Thanks again everyone for the nice comments!!!
Have a good one!

I have been having so much fun with my new Tim Holz die cuts and Wendy Vecchi's stamps!!
I made this album with on the edge dies, chipboard, grunge board & grunge paper. The pictures don't do it justice, it turned out really cool! Love that bird cage die cut! I still need to bind it, will post a pic when I do. I also have been making some fabric flowers and will post pics of those to!

Tim Holtz Sizzix Die Cuts

Oh, I have been bad, bad, bad!!! I have been on a shopping spree, and there is one that wasn't in the photo, the bird cage die! Plus I have a few more on the way!! I have been having fun with these die cuts, and Wendy Vecchi's stamps!! A lot of things in the works but need some time to finish them!! grrrr!!! Not enough hours in a day for me lately!!

I did this necklace with sticky back canvas. Claudine Hellmuth had a video on her blog using sticky back canvas and paper to make a necklace. Then Ranger made her take it off her blog, managed to watch it before it was taken off and tryed my hand at it. You take your paper and lay it on the canvas and spritz with water and roll the back of the paper off, really cool!! Biggest problem I had was fighting with my sewing machine!! lol Need to perfect the technique as we are going to do a class doing them. So fun!!

I did this layout using Tim Holtz Alterations tattered florals die cut, love that die cut!!! I got so excited to put the layout together I forgot to ink the edges of everything (I always ink) must have been tired!! I also used elegant flourishes & styled labels die cuts. For the life of me I could not get a good picture of the layout, I think I pushed to many buttons on my camera that I didn't know what they were for!!!! But it was so fun doing this layout and using flowers!!! I have 4 grandsons so I'm usually scraping them and don't get a chance to use flowers etc. Maddie better look out, she's going to become a photo queen!! lol I'm really liking these die cuts!!! I have been cutting out fabric flowers to make some flower pins. Fun, Fun, Fun!!!

Off to cut more FLOWERS!! Have a good one everyone!!
