Today I have done a fun notebook and altered pen project that is totally inspired by my former DT Sister Christy... Using the Fabscraps "Milkshake Collection" I made a fun mini notebook... perfect for that nostalgic friend or student. I love anything 1950's so I knew had to create with this fun collection. I used the 4x6 chipboard, other sizes are available, to make the front and back cover. Using Scor-Tape from the shop for my adhesive on this project... there are several widths available. I adhered the cardstock to the chipboard. I love this chipboard too, it is a nice thick grade. next i added some of the adorable shoe brads to the front and 2 shades of seam binding down the wire spine. Before using my Cinch to bind it together I distressed the edges some using Tim Holtz' Vintage Photo which is now available in the mini's along with several other colors too. Lastly I took a pen, wrapped it in seam binding and added one the foam flowers to the top... an FYI, these pens are easy peasy and make great party favors for a bridal shower. If you do any games that consist of writing, just give your guests a pen and afterwards they get to keep it :)!!!

This is a Pinterest DIY inspired project by max & me using products from Gone Artsy... be sure to check out their blog for more FAB projects. Now when I first this I knew I had to do one for myself. This can be a great item to hang in the car, or the Christmas tree... the themes for this project are endless and a great craft project to do with the kids... SO AGAIN, be sure to check out max & me to learn how to create this.


I created a grid on my Silhouette CAMEO cutting machine (or you can draw out a grid on your paper and cut with your favorite scissors or rotary cutter) to cut the paper from the DoCrafts Papermania Madame Payraud Paper Pack - GA545 in 2 cm x 2 cm squares... from this pack I used a total of 6- 6x6 sheets in 3 different patterns. Next taking the Bead and Gem Gripper Tool with Four Prongs - GA481... a FABULOUS tool and one of my favorite tools ever... I was so glad Deb got it in the shop... using the tool I placed the end of it onto the center of the square, brought the corners drown over the tip of it and just gave it a scrunch around the tip of the tool. Then I just added a drop of hot glue, took the "scrunched" square and placed it on the glue... HINT: I used the tip of the tool to push the square into place and hold it down till adhered to the ball... this tool was a life saver doing this project not to mention its actual use with beads and gems... I MUST HAVE!!

NOTE: once I completed gluing the individual 2 cm x 2 cm squares onto the foam ball I used the Tim Holtz Vintage Photo distressing ink all over.. I went in one direction moving around the ball... and once I completed it all over I then repeated going the opposite direction for more coverage.

I altered the cool Wooded Spool from the Gone Artsy shop... With July being the birthday month of our great country I kept with a Patriotic them. This is just a fun jazzy Americana style piece or great would even be great to use for a table setting at a Military style wedding for table numbers. I used the awesome glass glitters to give it some sparkle... this stuff is so cool! I then embossed some cardstock using a stars embossing folder and glued it around the center of the spool. Next I added some of the beautiful gimp trim. Around the center I used one of the five strand from the gypsy cording... this stuff is an awesome buy. You get 5 yards of five different cording to use all together or individually... heck just pick and choose the ones you want to use together :). From my stash I added bit and pieces of items and metals. I had a rusty metal star that I added some of the glass glitter to. Keeping in mid of starts I attached one of the beautiful star embellishments from the shop. Lastly I took some wire and shaped it in fun shapes and added some of the fun American brads.. just one of many brads in the shop... be sure to check them all out!!! Added some seam binding to the back to hid the mechanics and a button from my stash that I ran some more of the gypsy cording through. I used an old playing card that I grunge up... a great recycling idea to use for table numbers!!!

I altered a wine glass using some of the beautiful, sparkly Signature Pink Sunrise Glass Glitter Medley - GA649 all along the stem. I used Journey Glaze to adhere it and gave it a second dusting for good coverage. Next I sealed it also with the Journey Glaze. NOW, I am LOVING this... way better then regular glitter... once I sealed the glass glitter it still has its beautiful luster. Next I added a simple bow I made with the May Arts Ivory/Rose Sheer Pull Ribbon (GA378). Added some some rosebuds and a pearl... I wanted to keep it simple cause the glass glitter is soo pretty! Then I added a Silver Toned Wine Glass Charm/Earring Hoop Rings - (Set of 12 (GA34)... Next, to that I added some beads and pearls I had left from a previous product from the shop... the Vintage Style Pearl/Lace Collar, this is no longer available, but you can check it out (((HERE)))

A simple project great for the bridesmaids, a centerpiece for a wedding or baby shower... even create a lampshade and add a battery operated candle for a night light to any little girls room... or heck to enjoy your own favorite beverage!!!

Howdy lovely crafty people... well I went and done it folks... I SEWED!!! Now those who know me.. know I am a no sew gal., but last Christmas, well it was an early gift... my son's got me a sewing machine. Well the hubby and I had went away for an over night stay to a casino boat where they had this adorable scarf/neck accessory... NOW, you already know it was expensive!... my husband said, "you can make that"... he's so supportive God love him! Well, I did! Using the beautiful Ivory Dragonfly Lace - GA818 and the Tear Drop Dangle Lace (GA319) I created my own. The tear drop lace has a loopy trim that runs along the edge... I just trimmed that off and stitched it along both sides of the dragon fly lace. I chose these two laces to go together because the tear drop reminded me of the tail of the dragon fly in the dragon fly lace... next I made a pin out of the High Heel Embellishment - GA680. I just attached a closure using E600. I am very pleased with my little version of this wonderful accessory... Gone Artsy products are not only for the crafters... but the seamstresses too... this beginning one for sure!!! ;)








 .... I added it to a pillow case to give an extra touch. Using the lovely wide laces from Gone Artsy and adding them to a set of pillow cases always make for a fabulous gift... especially a wedding gift for the bride and groom.
