May's #12Tagsof2015

Hello everyone!!

Whooohooo! I made it...I got the tag done for this month...I was beginning to question myself lol! I need to try and get them done earlier in the month but it's probably wishful thinking :) 

Anyways I did as I have previous months and followed Tim's tag tutorial to the T. I really love learning all the different techniques and using them in other areas of crafting as well. To find the tutorial for this month's tag just click on the pic below...

I really loved making the flowers for this one and using the distress markers on the pic to change the effect. I also really love the vintage feel that this tag has.

So without further ado here is my version of this month's #12Tagsof2015...

The only thing that I didn't use that I didn't have was the Tag die so I just outlined the manila tag and cut it out by just as good. Everything else is how Tim explains it in his tutorial.

I really love doing these tags and you should come play along every month even if you don't have everything you can substitute.

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you have a lovely rest of the day!!

Shabby Chic Stickpin Book

Hello everyone!!

Today I have a quick share because there is so much detail in this I think it would be better to watch my video posted below for all the details.

I made a shabby chic stickpin book inspired by Sassyscrappers Bonnie for my friend Barbara...Since she has waited for I think two months I was trying to make it extra special...I hope I succeeded!

Ok so here are a few pics of it.....

Here is the front cover....I kind of surprised myself that I actually made this cause I think it turned out really pretty!

These are the inside pages above.

And here are some books that I made to hold the other stickpins I made to send her.

I hope she loves them!

Come check out KS4U for the laces, flowers, trims, beads to make some stickpin books of your own!

Here is the video that I mentioned above I hope you come watch:

Thanks for stopping by!! :)

Altered Desk Organizer/Caddy

Hello everyone!!

I am sharing with you today a desk organizer/caddy that I made for my friend Laurie. :) We decided to do a swap together and decided to do a desk organizer of some sort so this is what I came up with for her.

I hope she likes it!! :) 

I used a lot of Kraft Supplies 4 U goodies and also they are having a sale right now 30% off if you are wanting to get anything now would be the perfect time. Sale ends Monday May 25th.
The laces, flowers, and some charms are from the store! pretty!!

The papers I used was from the Archivist Collection which I think fit it perfect because I wanted it to be vintage shabby.

Here are a few more views:

The big spools I used velcro to attach so she can refill them and keep her favorite lace on hand. 
I hope she can put it to good use and will love it forever!!!

Here is my video with all the details:

Thanks for stopping by! I hope your day has been great!! :)
