Standing Still

Here is a layout I made with the "For All Time Kit". It is of my son with his Rodeo. The gears from Tim Holtz's idea-ology collection works great with these papers.

For love is of God...

Here is a layout I made of my son and twin grandsons. The picture is a couple years old, but it has always been a favorite of mine and just begged to be scrapped. :-)

Best Wishes Card

Here is a card I made to use as one of the examples for my upcoming class on distressing. I just inked the edges of the card and torn edges of the music paper.

I am really enjoying teaching the classes. Especially the beginner classes. It's fun to see people realize how fun scrapbooking can be. I am a historian at heart and love to pass on the importance of documenting our lives to pass on to our family.

Hope you like the card!

Live, Laugh, Love

Here is a LO I did of my daughter. It took me forever to pick out the right shades of blue! Sometimes I can pull papers for the LO and instantly think "that's it"... other times I change my mind over and over. LOL

The photo was taken by my very talented daughter-in-law Kristen, who is a photographer.

Dream Wall Hanging Tutorial

Here are the instructions on how to make this adorable wall hanging:

Project kit:

Step 1: Using your favorite glue (I used Studio Multi Media - matte) glue the background paper to the album refill page. Trim or sand the edges if necessary.

Step 2: Tear the accent paper into a semi-circle and distress edges. Glue onto the bottom of the project. Poke holes through the top of the paper. Don't worry if the holes are a little jagged. I also lightly misted it with a little Smooch Mist.

Step 3: Glue on the flower vine. (Use a thick glue such as Zip Dry)

Step 4: Using the Smooch Mist included in the kit, mist the letters. You can use any word that will fit on the project.

Step 5: Glue the letters onto the hanging. Arrange them in a slight sem-circle on top of the vine as shown.

Step 6: Arrange and glue on the large flowers. A thicker glue works best.

Step 7: Fill in with the small flowers and leaves.

Step 8: Now just attach the ribbon and hang! (I threaded the ribbon through the holes and just tied a knot in back.)
