Welcome!


YES! You are the right page! I just have a new name! :) After realizing that I do more than just scrapbooking, I've decided to change the name and will be changing the look.. I'd do a whole new blog but I'd hate to have to start all over.
Here you will find scrapbooking ideas. There's a ton of older posts that used the Cricut, but lately I haven't been using it much and well, my sewing machine is gaining more miles by the day.

Techniques !

Been working on a swap the last few days - and here are the pages that I did! I can't wait to get them all back and learn something new :) Course, doing my own pages, I dyed skittles for the first time, and even learned "stretching"

Stretching Page - Title made with Don Juan, photo is just a random one I had in my collection that I took at the lake, and matted wtih DCWV Summer Adhesive Mat Stack
Distress ink - Inks Used - Background is Distress Ink Tea Dye by Ranger, and the strip is Antique Linen. Letters done with Stamped

Dry Wall Mesh - Letters cut from Mickey Font, Dry wall tape purchased at Menards. I matted my journalling, and then used my sewing machine to sew the journaling and the mat together. Used really pretty Gold thread too :)


Dying Skittles - Title is font TGIFriday's cut out with SCAL. I used Tim Holtz Alcohol Inks on aluminum tape to get the background for the lettering. I dyed clear skittles with Meadow, and put them in a baggie and adhered them to the page with a brad and paper flower. Flower stamp is Just Rite.

Thanks for looking!

OK...dumb question, but what are skittles? I have heard people talk of them but I don't know what they are.
