My very first BIA project!

Ok, I was bad... I was real bad! I had to have it! I bought a Bind-It-All! I couldn't help myself... So, I developed some pictures and decided to make my first project. For my dear daughter's 17th Birthday, we took her and some friends to Knott's Scary Farm. I decided to make a half circle album. Here it is post embellishments!

Bermuda Bay Dasher

On Saturday, November 7th, I attended the last "Udderly Awesome" group quarterly meeting of 2009. This is the card that I created for the swap. I look forward to all of the quarterly meetings because it is a great time to network and to gain lots of inspiration! I was really busy and had to create something quickly. I was unsure what I wanted to make since the theme for this swap was "whatever we'd like". I figured I'd do something Christmas. I wanted to use non-traditional Christmas colors... I am really happy with the way my trade turned out. I used bermuda bay and rose red. Hope you enjoy!

Medallion Night & Day

I recently joined a Yahoo Group Called "Monthly Theme Card". The idea is to send a monthly card to another group member. The group moderator is the one who gives the assignments and themes monthly. October was the first time I participated. This is the card I sent. It is a joy fold card. The theme for the month was black and any color. I chose to keep it simple. I used black and white. This is a card that is versatile. It is elegant enough to use for a wedding. It really could be used for any occassion. If you look closely, notice the shimmer on the medallion. I used shimmer spray on it, made with alcohol and frost white shimmer paint.

Embellished Paperbag Mini Albums

Here are 2 different types of mini albums I've created to hopefully sell at the craft fair. One is titled "My Peeps".. the second is titled "My Lil Princess". I was inspired by different mini albums I've seen posted all over message boards and other's personal blogs. So what do you think? I hope they sell!

It's been a while!

I've been busy getting ready for a craft fair that I will be participating in on Dec 3rd and 4th. I'm really excited, I've never participated in a craft fair before! I've been busy creating different items that I think would be things people would buy. I have this idea that people may be interested in purchasing embellished mini scrapbooks. So I've been playing with a few ideas. I will post little by little things that I create. In the mean time, here are a few cards I've made recently. The one above is a joy fold card I made for a Top SU Swaps Christmas card swap that I participated in. The only requirement was to use the following three colors: old olive, real red and chocolate chip. If you look closely at the Dasher image, you will see the shimmer paint spray clearly! I love it. I've been spraying everything with it. The card below I made using the heat & stick powder with glitter. Isn't it pretty?
