Shh! It’s A Secret!

Don’t tell the girls, but these little babies are part of their Christmas presents. Yet another project from Big Picture Scrapbooking’s Giving Well class. I started with chipboard drawers by Maya Road, painted with leftover wall paint (to ensure a perfect match, of course). Then I decoupaged (again with the decoupage) with Stampin’ Up! Designer Series Papers and attached some random buttons with ribbon for drawer pulls. I think they’re adorable — hopefully the girls will too!

Look What I Did!

Just what I need — another hobby! I’m just getting started digiscrapping, and I’m finding it’s just as addictive as paper crafting. I just completed this page as a homework assignment for an online lesson.

A Birthday Book for Christmas?!

This is another cute project from my class. A place to store all the birthdays and special dates in your life, and room for photos too! This measures a little under 4 x 6. Materials used include: Cutie Pie Designer Series Paper, Bliss Blue, Certainly Cerlery, Rose Red, and So Saffron Craft inks, Prints Designer Series Papers, and cardstock, and Two Cute stamp set. Alphabets: Typeset Lower, Alphadots (retired), and Rough Edges Mini.

Cigar Box Remake

I'm in a total decoupaging frenzy around here! I've been covering all kinds of items for Christmas gifts this year (again, influenced a great deal by the class I'm taking at Big Picture Scrapbooking). I don't want to post too many of my projects online in case the future recipient should get a peek at them, but this is one gift I made for myself. (I'm finding that happening a lot this year!) The paper is Cosmo Cricket "Halfway Cafe" that I picked up at my local scrapbook store (AKA "LSS") Memory Lane, which closed its doors a few months ago. I loved the paper, but it didn't seem to lend itself to a scrapbook page. It was perfect for this application tho. The star is a Stampin' Up! chipboard piece, with one of their big eyelets and Maya Road fibers for embellishment.
