Shabby chic receipts pocket for my Filofax

 Hello Friends!
I wanted to share a little receipts pocket I made for my Pocket size Filofax! So sweet and easy to make!
I started with one of my reticulated library pockets. I stamped it with one of Something Tattered's newly released stamps. (brushed Corduroy Distress ink)

Then I cut and embossed the label with my eBosser.

Last, I added one of my vintage images and hole punched it to fit my Filofax. 
Thanks for taking a peek!

Valentines card using Teresa Collins You are My Happy line

 Hello Friends!
  I took a little break from the mini album and made a Valentine's Day card. I hope you enjoy it!


The Base of this card is a reticulated library pocket from my shop. I layered a mat and die cut a tag out of Teresa Collins You Make Me Happy line. The tag has sweet little foil hearts...so cute!

The digi and the heart doily are inked with Brushed Corduroy Distress ink

I added a rose from one of my sets and some seam binding.



I love the top of these library pockets!

This floral paper is my favorite from the set....so pretty.


Thanks for peeking!

Shabby Chic tag feautering Something Tattered stamps

 Hello Friends! Today I have a project featuring a Something Tattered "wallpaper" stamp. You use these beautiful stamps like wallpaper! I made mine with cardstock, but you also get a beautiful effect with tissue paper. Just stamp the strips, cut them out, line them up and glue!
 You can find many of the supplies here in my Zibbet shop http://www.zibbet.com/shabbybeautiful
Stamps ----> https://www.etsy.com/shop/SomethingTattered


The Paris Stamp is another Something tattered stamp...so beautiful!
I punched the top of a short library pocket with a Martha Stewart punch, added a flower, some bling and butterflies. Then i matted a pretty vintage image and place it in the pocket.



I used Inktense watercolor pencils to color in some of the roses, then went over them with a wet paintbrush.

Thanks so much for looking! Make sure to visit the link I have above to see all the wonderful stamps Something Tattered has to offer.

Teresa Collins You are my Happy continued

Hello Friends!
Back again with more pictures of the Teresa Collins/Craftwell You are My Happy Mini album.
This line is full of really fun papers and embellishments.
Library pockets and seem binding available here http://www.zibbet.com/shabbybeautiful
I made a little pocket with one of the 12 inch long scalloped strips that come in the set. everything was inked with Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink. The little heart mat was cut from one of the design papers and the little rose ephemera is also from the set.

How cute are those bow ties?! The button came with adhesive attached...Easy Peasy

The polka dot paper is foiled, it's hard to tell from the picture. I just added the little striped strip, some bling and a layered flower.

Here are the pull outs :)

 Please visit my Zibbet shop for digital images and supplies http://www.zibbet.com/shabbybeautiful

Hello Friends! I'm back with more pictures of the You are My Happy mini album! Again, this is a really fun line with lot's of papers and embellishments. Let's get to it:

These to pages are matted with papers from the collection. The little doily pieces serve as "Pockets" for the tags...I LOVE using pockets and pull outs!

The tag is stamped with a Something Tattered stamp...so beautiful!

The gold scallop and putton are also part of the collection

The Ceiling Tin tile tag was embossed in my eBosser. This tag was stamped with the same Something Tattered stamp. I added seam binding and a rose to the tags.

Here are the pages without the tags






The only thing I did with this mini was add a couple of stickers....the rest of it is how it originally came in the kit (minus the inking) So Fun!

Filofax Personal Raspberry Finchley decorated pages

 Hello Friends!
  As some of you know, I've become a little obsessed with Filofax planners and have accumulated quite a few in the past couple months. I think I love them for a couple of different reasons...

 For one, they are beautiful! If you love the look, feel and smell of leather, you know what I mean. I feel like leather becomes prettier as it ages...I love the scratches, dings in scuffs!

 Another thing I love is that it offers me a way to be creative with an item that I use everyday. When I open my binder it makes me smile :)

 Anyway, I've got the first  week of January decorated...just stickers and glitter tape, no skills required lol, but I like doing it and looking at it. Hope this inspires you to decorate your own planner. I'll save the calendar pages at the end of the year as a diary of sorts, a documentation of the year.

Visit my Zibbet shop to purchase pretty dividers http://www.zibbet.com/shabbybeautiful

 So, here they are!

 Like I said, I just used stickers and glitter tape. I added a little sliver of brown glitter tape to the butterfly above, as the body.....the flower on both pages is just 1 sticker cut in half, then I added the glitter centers (also cut from the glitter tape)


The little butterflies were punched from the Glitter tape with a Martha Stewart punch.
 I bought a ton of the tape from Joann's when they had it half price...love a little bling!

 Thanks for peeking! If you are into Filofax or planners, consider joining my Pretty Planners group on Facebook and visiting my Zibbet shop where I sell laminated die cut binder dividers :) Thanks!!

Teresa Collins You are my Happy mini scrapbook album

 Hello Friends!

 This month Teresa Collins is sponsoring the Craftwell design team! I received the whole "You are my Happy line and it is adorable! I'll be adding new pictures of the album as I complete, so make sure to check my blog this week :)
 
Please take a peek at my Zibbet shop http://www.zibbet.com/shabbybeautiful
The base of this album is one of my coil bound mini albums.
The paper, tag, flag, doily, dots and brads are all from the line.
The image is one of my digital collage sheets.

I tied scraps of seam binding and ribbon to the coil to add a little softness.
I also inked everything with Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink. The actually line is quite clean, so I had to grubby it up a bit!

The Happy Story tabs are actually a little mini inside the mini. I'll give you a peek of that tomorrow :)
So come back and take a peek!
