Halloween Mini Album Swap

 I hosted a Halloween Mini Album Swap on my YouTube channel and this was the mini I created!! I used the K & Co Halloween stack from this year found at Michael's.


 I made the caldron a spot for a picture and it closes with a small Basic Grey magnet.


 This mini has tons of tags and photo mats!!!


 Fun pumpkin pages!!
 Plenty of spots for pictures!!
 I used the packaging from the paper line to make this spider web pocket!!

This fun mini went to my youtube friend Tiff at twestkd, I hope she has fun filling it up!!!

The "wrappin" part of my name!!! :)

I love, love, love themed gifts!! I am obsessed with making themed gift baskets!! They are so much fun to make and such a hit at parties!! This gift basket was created for my good friend Nicole and her baby Reagan for the baby shower!! Nicole chose yellow and grey for the baby's room and I wanted to keep with that color combination. It turned out really cute!!

The Greeting Farm Addiction


Well, I have finally decided to jump on The Greeting Farm bandwagon!! Of course, this isn't a bad thing, just an expensive new addiction!!! I have received multiple cards from my YT friend Tshernjpan using the Greeting Farm stamps and they are just so adorable!! My friend Scrapology let me play in her scraproom with her Copic markers and a Greeting Farm Anya stamp! That was fun!!! And the beginning of the end for me!! LOL....So I bit the bullet and ordered enough Copic markers to do light skin, African American skin, black hair and brown hair...oh! and Blush! I have been practicing, coloring for the first time in years...but it is quite relaxing and fun!! Here is a birthday card I made using the new 2011 Anya Birthday II stamp. Instead of doing the shine effect for her hair, I tried to make highlights. Still needs some practice!!

Graphic 45 A Proper Gentleman and Steampunk Debutante Altered Gift Boxes

 These were boxes that I altered to present as giftcard holders.
 The one on the left was for my dad, A Proper Gentleman. The one on the right was for my mom, Steampunk Debutante. Inside I used black tulle instead of tissue paper.
 I tore the papers, distressed with black soot and modge podged them onto the box.
 Here I used Prima bling for her necklace and to and a flower to her hat.
 I used I am roses gardenias that I sprayed with Glimmer Mist Juniper and Olive Vine. I used a Tim Holtz gear for one of the flowers center and Prima bling in various spots.
These flower tips were painted with Rangers Pitch Black alcohol ink and then Glimmer Misted with Tattered Leather and Olive Vine.  There are some Prima pearls as well.

Graphic 45 All That Jazz (Curtain Call Collection) #1 Hit

 This is the second layout I created for a shadowbox to display in my loft.
 I used Tokens musical instrument charms for flair.
 I used I am roses black flowers and small green leaves. Prima pearls are in the top corner.
 I used lace and trim from Recollections, Spare Parts and Hobby Lobby. The musical brads are by Spare Parts.
 The record is made out of black chipboard. The record label is made from kraft cardstock. My boyfriend creeps by me sometimes during my creative process and for this he asked, "Is this our platinum record?" He's cute.
The finished product! This will hang by My Leading Man shadowbox in my loft.

Graphic 45 Le Cirque altered ATC Holder

 This was a boring ATC tin can I purchased from the Scrapbook Expo 2010. It needed some love! The beautiful bling brad is by Spare Parts.
 I tore the papers (my favorite) and used black soot to distress. 
 I modge podged the papers onto the tin.
 These are Recollections Circus alpha stamps which stamped perfectly for an old, vintage look!
The top of the tin has I am roses flowers and mini green leaves along with a touch of Prima bling.

Graphic 45 Curtain Call-Shadowbox Wall Decor-My Leading Man

 This is a layout I created to display in a shadowbox on my wall in my loft. I made the film reel out of black chipboard.
 The letters were cut out of the paper line with my cricut and the metal alpha's are from Making Memories.
 These are I am roses flowers, Recollections leaves and a metal embellishment.
 I love this corner. I tore and curled the edges for an aged effect. I used black soot distress ink as well. The metal flower is from Spare Parts and the feather just adds that finishing touch this corner needed!
Here is the completed shadowbox project.

Graphic 45 Curtain Call-Croppin Clips

 These are two keychain clips I made using jewelry pieces and Tim Holtz's fragment pieces for my 2 youtube BFF's!!
 The bottle cap charm has a pewter metal Making Memories alpha piece inside.
 The back has a Spare Parts black metal embellishment with a half back pearl in the center.
 The bow is made from some sheer black ribbon.
 I used some pearl bling on the back as well.
Who wouldn't want to decorate their croppin bag with a personal croppin clip?? :)

Graphic 45-Le Cirque card

 I created this card using the Dazzle and Delight page from the Le Cirque collection. The card is a 4 x 5 card. The strip in the middle is on pop dots with navy blue lace bordering on each side.

I used an EK Success punch to hold the sentiment. The base of the card is kraft paper.
 I used a navy blue I am roses flower and small green leaf.

Graphic 45 Hallowe'en in Wonderland Mini Album


 This is a Hallowe'en in Wonderland mini album I created using 6 x 9 black envelopes.
 These charms are from a bracelet that I had bought at a garage sale for $1!!!! Perfect for my mini!!
 I loved the colorful cover to my mini! The Tim Holtz book plate looks gorgeous on the cover.
 I fussy cut out the tea pot set! Tricky! Its actually a pocket holding two small tags. The cut out of Alice at the table is a pocket as well, holding three tags with fibers.
 I created this hat myself, it was fun to make! The ticket on the hat is a pocket with two playing cards as tags. The hat itself is also a pocket, holding one large tag. I fussy cut out Alice.
 I created this keyhole shaped pocket and added green patina Perfect Pearls for shimmer. There are three tags from the collection inside the pocket. I used a Tim Holtz mask behind Alice and some Prima pearls on the page.
 The lace is a pocket holding the photo mat. I made a tulle bow behind the button. The large flower is a Floradoodle flower with some fiber around the button. I added tulle inbetween the petals, a brad and some of the cut outs from the paper line.
 I fussy cut the tree and the cat on this page and then popped it up. The background has forever violet Perfect Pearls for shimmer. The pocket is a small kraft colored envelope holding playing cards from the paper line. The stamped images are embossed black. I used some Prima eline flowers sprayed with Glimmer Mist-Olive Vine and Haunted Shadows.
 I tore some of the paper to make a pocket, I love this effect. This pocket holds three tags. Prima eline flowers Glimmer Misted with Olive Vine and Haunted Shadows also are on this page.
These are all the tags inside the mini, plenty of room for pictures and journaling, or P & J as my boyfriend likes to call it!!
