Shabby chic Pocket full of Vintage mini scrapbook album

 Hello Friends!
  I have not  done a mini in a while, so I thought it was about time! (you can see a video of the album here http://youtu.be/3eMinOYhXdw I made this one using 5 x 8 Fancy mats. I love all the pockets! You can check out the tutorial here   http://youtu.be/iBWsPj3Gri8  and purchase a set of 24 mats in my Zibbet shop (you should be able to make 3 of these albums with the set)

Here it is!

shabby cottage chic basket of blue flowers digi projects

 Hello Friends!
  Here are a few things I made with the new Free digital collage sheet! Just Subscribe (if you're not sure how to subsribe you can find out here http://shabbybeautiful.blogspot.com/2012/09/new-free-shabby-chic-collage-sheet.html )  and follow my blog...then email me at kmchristensen1@gmail.com to get on the list. After that, you will automatically receive your free digi in your email when they come out. (Once a new digi is out, the old ones are no longer available for free, but can be purchased in my store very inexpensively)

Here's a sweet little card made using the smallest size image on the sheet (there are 2 different sizes) I just cut it out and used my corner rounder, then inked it with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. Really easy!

This is the bigger sized image matted on a little Fancy mat. This can be used as a tag in a mini, as a card front, or a little gigt card. How cute would this be hanging from a ribbon on a bottle of wine as a hostess gift?

This is one of my scalloped notecards that I LOVE! I use these in my minis all the time and they also make cute little gift cards.
I'm offering my blog followers a bundle that includes 48 pieces for $19.99 shipped to the US.

Sweet little altered slide folder

 Hello Friends!
  Woke this morning and did this little project...after a gallon of coffee of course! This was really fun, just flew by the seat of my pants.


I started with a plain chipboard slide folder. These are super thick and hold up to a lot of painting and embellishing. I should've taken a picture of how thick they are...they are a double thickness of chipboard...

Anyway, I started by cutting the little dividing bar out of the middle to make 1 recessed area. Just used a craft knife.

Next I painted both sides with Martha Stewart Metallic paint (from home depot)
I used a staz on black inkpad to stamp the front and distress the edges. I just simply ran the edges across the ink pad.

The bats are painted with the same metallic paint in a different color....then I just embellished! Really quick and fun. A favorite Halloween picture can go in the recessed slide area.
These are great to display standing up because they are so sturdy.
You can purchase sets of 5 in my store if you're interested!
