Hello Friends! I wanted to share a little mini wedding receipt organizer/scrapbook I made using Something Tattered Stamps and Color Box ink pads.
My Grandma had kept the receipts for everything from my Mom and Dad's wedding and it was so fun looking through them.
Sooooo, I came up with an idea for this little keepsake album. It's made out of library pockets, so there is plenty of room for all of your receipts, some pictures and journaling.
I have a video I made a while ago that shows the technique I used to bind the pockets together, you can see it here. (I used a little different library pocket, but you'll get the idea) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E7wnYFbneRM
I used 5 pockets that where tea stained with walnut ink. (It comes in a powder and you mix in water and spray or dab on)
You can find the digi sheets in my shop here:

The "Hinges" that hold the album together are from a digital collage sheet from my shop, as is the rose picture. I inked everything up with Color Box Pigment Ink in Copper. It's hard to tell in the pictures, but it really adds some glimmery shine.

All the Stamps used in this little mini are from Something tattered. LOVE these stamps. So pretty and romantic.

I used the Pigment copper to stamp the image. 



Pretty Pink seam binding holds the album closed.


I've stamped and added pretty journal cards in each of the pockets.

The rest of the images were made with Color Box Crafter's Ink Pad in Bark.
I added some flowers and bling,


These stamps are so detailed and the Crafter's Ink gives great crisp lines. By the way, it can be used on paper, fabric, wood and more. I was impatient waiting for it to dry, so I used my heat gun to set it.


This mini is small, but full of room for pictures and journalling.


It's hard to see, but I cut tiny pearls from Prima bling and added them to the scroll work.


You could add even more pockets by just gluing the mats on 3 sides. I didn't do that on this one, but it is an option. 



This project was pretty quick and would make a beautiful gift for the Bride to be.
Thanks so much for peeking!

I'm listing a bunch of goodies on Ebay as well....I have a kiddo going to Mizzou in the fall and another one right behind him :) lol, so please put me in yoour favorites, I have a bunch of goodies that I am adding everyday...you never know...you may find a treasure ;)

Shabby Cottage Chic Thinking of You Card

Hello Friends! I have a shabby cottage Chic little card to share with you today.
I'll have similar card kits in my store at the end of June.
It's a very easily put together card. I just die cut the card and mats, inked them up with distress ink and stamped the sentiment (From an Avery Elle stamp set)


Then I just layered them on! Love these shapes!

I punched the butterflies with a Marha Stewart punch. I think these make the whole card....that's why I have the compulsion to hold onto the tiniest scraps of pretty paper lol.

I added a real crystal rhinestone to the butterflies. I really love the look of the real crystals. It raises the look to more boutique quality, in my opinion.

I added a couple of my roses for dimension.
I always leave the wings of my butterflies unglued. They look so sweet hovering on the card.
Thanks so much for peeking!

Hello Friends! Today I'm sharing a little gift tag I made using Avery Elle Stamp Set Weather it.

I stamped the stamps onto patterned paper and then fussy cut them.
Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy! 
Then I stamped the sentiment and assembled.
This is a fun way to use open  (not detailed) stamps.
You could use baby design paper for a shower, wedding paper...etc.
You could even stamp on wrapping paper and cut it out!
Thanks so much for peeking!

Purple Pansy Friend Card


Hello Friends! 
Here's a little Purple Pansy card I made using my eBosser and a die from Cas-ual Fridays
I ran my Victorian mat through the eBosser with an embossing folder to create the raised design.
I inked up the card mat and image and then layered them on.
"Friend was stamped on with a tiny stamp.



Some Prima Hydrangeas and diecut foliage finish it off. Super easy and quick.

I love the greenery, it's very versatile. Make sure to take a peek at Cas-ual Fridays Stamps and dies.

Hello Friends! I''v got another page from my Keychain mini album to share. This is a simple page....I like to pair my pocket pages with a similar page that can display a picture.
I inked up the paper and stamped it with a stamp from Cas-ual fridays.
http://www.cas-ualfridaysstamps.com/

Then I cut the flowers and greenery with my eBosser. These dies are also from Cas-ual Fridays. Love these! So versatile, they can be used on almost any project.


I added a little butterfly and some bling.

The flower center was just a little pearl cut from a bigger bling flourish from Prima.

Thanks so much for peeking, and check back next week for another page.




Hello Friends I have a very simple elegant gift card holder for you today. I used Something Tattered's beautiful stamp sets. They are all so beautiful! 

All I did was take a large shipping tag and fold the bottom up and glued it along the sides. Voila! A pocket. You could wrap pretty paper around cash or gift cards and tuck them in the pocket. Or you could use these in a scrapbook album to hold memorabilia.


Next I used one of Something Tattered's wallpaper stamps. LOVE these! Awesome for making backgrounds.

Then I used a corner flourish stamp from this set

After it was all stamped I inked the edges.

I love these colors! Pinks, aquas, greens and creams...
I used the 4 petal die set to cut the flower with my eBosser, reminds me of hydrangea petals.
Then I cut the vine and made into a little pocket.
The little pearl at the bottom serves as a stopper so my journal cards don't fall through.

I added a little tiny pearl to the inside of the flower...so delicate.

Here's the page without the pullouts. I used Vintage Photo distress Ink to stamp the little flowers on. 


Love these vintage looking journaling cards. I inked them up to give them some age. A picture can be put on the back or some journaling. 
Thanks for peeking!
