Just before Christmas I attended a class presented by Holly Thompson at Scrapendipity headquarters.

Holly is a very patient, and hands on teacher. Everything was prepared for us and with her helping hand  everything came together without too much problems.Christmas-Mini-Album-#3This is a very sturdy way of compiling a mini album from scratch, I shall definitely use this technique again.Christmas-Mini-Album-#4Of course the embellishing part is the most fun……Christmas-Mini-Album-#5

Altered Christmas Shoe

Hello friends.

I am so glad you have time to visit here.

Look at this sexy shoe Mrs. Clause left at my home. Who knew she had such grate taste in shoes?

I wouldn’t mind wearing a pair of these, only if she left the other one too….Altered-Christmas-Shoe#1This is a wooden shoe I bought at The Scrap Yard in Calgary south. It was meant for halloween, but time ran out and halloween was over before you could say “Rest in Peace”.

So Christmas looked like a good candidate for playing with paper and modge podge .Altered-Christmas-Shoe#2And what would this festive shoe be without some jingle and bling.Altered-Christmas-Shoe#3Some sassy feathers and lace to ensure an extra glance from Santa when walking away makes the back interesting.Altered-Christmas-Shoe#4This was a lot of fun to make and didn’t take long at all. Altered-Christmas-Shoe#5So pop in to The Scrap Yard, Lori have a lot of wooden alphas and other beautiful craft goodies. Maybe you can find a gift or two for yourself from yourself. It happens all the time here at my house.

Hope your Holidays are blessed and full of Christmas joy.

Happy Crafting Everyone.

Framed Collage Gift

Hello all.

Hope all is well and life is treating you kind.

It is that time of the year again. Gift giving, gift making and gift buying.

How about making something special for someone?Framed Collage GiftThis was a very easy and fun frame to make. The frame has five display spaces to fill, so all I had to do was make five mini pages to fit in the spaces.Framed Collage Gift #1I stuck to a basic theme of romance. They are after all grouped together.

Torn paper, inking, stamping and other small flat embellishments worked well here.Framed Collage Gift #2When finished stick it thoroughly in place and assemble the frame and glass.

How easy is that for a one of a kind, very special gift.

Enjoy the Christmas season and have lots of fun with your loved ones.

Happy Crafting!

The flu grabbed me last week and wouldn’t let go. Hopefully it will get tired of my company and leave soon.

Here is a layout I did a while ago. See the nice summer flowers?Peace-Pipe-LayoutTim Holtz embossed grungeboard alphabets were stained orange with Spiced Marmelade distress ink, then brushed over with a black ink pad.Peace-Pipe-Detail-1Lots of stamping and distressing on this layout, and don’t forget to journal.Peace-Pipe-Detail-2The orange flower made a nice interest point for some extra journaling.Peace-Pipe-Detail-3I love to emphasize the titles on my pages, here I used stamping, coloring, stickers and pom-pom ribbon to make things interesting.Peace-Pipe-Detail-4
