So you may have noticed the cute little blinkie (thanks Michelle!) on my sidebar, that’s because Cindy over at www.stampingscrapping.com has chosen me as a member of her design team!!  I’m so excited to be working with Cindy because she’s such a wonderful person, and has a fabulous store!  She’s a great friend too!

Here is my first featured project with her…

I used the Petaloo glitter flowers and the BRAND NEW JustRite Wedding stamp set for this project, which is actually a wedding gift journal.  Cindy has both the Petaloo (many other colors and styles) as well as the JustRite products available on her website: www.stampingscrapping.com.

Keep watching both here and Cindy’s site for more projects from the design team!

Thanks for stopping by!

Have a great day!

$1 Bin Altered Book!

So, I ws in Target the other day, digging through the $1 bins for scrapbooking items, when I came across these little books:

Just a $1 childrens book – but I turned it into this:


I used my new favorite tool, the Tim Holtz sanding block (http://www.stampingscrapping.com/item_1140/NEW-TIM-HOLTZ-SANDING-GRIPBLOCK.htm ) to rough up the pages.  I then used Tombow Multi glue to glue my pages down.  I sanded the edges, decorated the pages and now have a cute little christmas book! 

By the way, if you’re interested, the paper is Fa la la by Making Memories 🙂

Thanks for looking!  Let me know if you have any questions!
