Altered Drink Recipe MiniAlbum with BIA

Ok...tonight was interesting to say the least lol I FINALLY took my Bind-it-All out of the bag it came in and used it!! Yes you heard me right...I used my Bind-It-All!! To be such a small thing, it sure holds a big intimidation factor!! I was soooo scared to make that first punch in fear it would screw up my page and then I'd have to start over lol but i finally just took the plunge and I think it turned out ok, could be better though.

Anyways this book was made for an Adult Drink Paintcan Swap I'm in. It's a mixed drink recipe book. The covers and pages are coasters that were bought from Michaels and I altered them.

Thanks for looking!!

My Sesame Street Friends!!!

Ok I know for you seasoned Cricut users, this isn't a big deal lol But for those of you who know me, knows that for the longest time, I have been a bit of a collector of sorts, but I'm getting better!! Just to prove it....look what I made tonight!!! My first time at cutting and doing layers with Cricut cuts. A member on the board wanted some Sesame cuts so I volunteered, being the sweet person that I am lol yeah i know what you're saying....lol anywho...These are what I came up with. What ya think?? Would you put them in your scrapbook??

These were done with the Sesame Street & Friends Cricut Cartridge. All done at 4inches. Various types of cardstock.

Altered Spring/Girly Journaling Tags

These are some Spring/Girly Journaling Tags that I altered for a swap that I was in. They've all been mailed in so I figured I'd go ahead and post. These were my first journaling tags that I altered. The journaling area is on the back on the tag. Fibers were added to the top of the tag. Paper is from InqueBoutique. I traced the flowers on the paper with various colors of Liquid Pearls. Various buttons added to middle of flowers. Stickles to accent around center. Bug embellishments added. Some were buttons that had the shanks removed and others are skittles that I made to look like bugs crawling on the flowers.
Thanks for looking!

Card set with Purse

Well I finally made myself take a break from all the swaps I'm in to make this Card set.
A great friend of mine was selling a few of her House Mouse stamps, and we all know how much I love those, so she came up with a great idea. Instead of me paying her, I would make her some handmade cards. Hopefully I've done the trade justice and she doesn't feel jipped.
Anyways, I got the idea and pattern for the purse from the PaperCrafts magazine, 225 Cards & Gifts Issue. the stamps are called "Fairy Tales" from The Angel Company. Various papers and cardstock. Stickles decorate the front of the purse along with a few gems in the middle of the flowers.
Hope she likes and you liked looking as well!
