Simple Stories Mini ~ Hold ATCs & Thank Yous


I wanted to share with you the finished book.  You might not know that Scrapadabadoo sends out thank you cards with each order and I wanted a place to keep them so, I designed this book to hold my thank you cards and charms.

I created this book from my Steampunk Soiree Book to hold my ATCs from the event.


Inside cover I created the sunflowers from Susan’s Garden sizzix die.  I added the fence from a Magnolia die and hand cut the chicken.  The photo frame is a sizzix instant photo die and the girls are from Prima’s Julie Nutting collection.


Here you can see how I used chicken wire to hang the charms and the soda tabs for the binding.  You can see how it was done on my Ustream channel.  Have a great week.

Try It On Tuesday~Use Your Stash Challenge

Hi, this week on Try It On Tuesday the challenge is anything from your stash.  I choose to use my leftover paper from Prima’s collection Cartographer.
It is a mini album for a young man my daughter’s girlfriend ask me to make.  This is my first album for a guy as a gift.  I hope they like it and he is able to keep it on his side table. 
Be sure to check out the other amazing creations from our other design team members over at TIOT and come and play!

I made the stand from bicycle gears I didn’t use and Kathy Orta’s bracelet she gave us on the top, which I can remove anytime to wear when I want. 

So, for tonight’s Ustream class we will be continuing with the mini to hold Scrapadabadoo’s Thank You cards.  This mini will be great for atc’s, school photo, project life or any occasion. 


I will be using Simple Stories “A charmed Life” tonight, but this can be done with anything from your stash.  I also, will be adding flowers to the cover and some of the Julie Nutting cling doll stamps.

Connector strips/hinges 1” wide 8 @ 1 x 8 1/2

Tim’s tiny attacher

Paper collection

Kraftex~Fascinators Steampunk Soiree

My Steampunk Fascinator for the Steampunk Soiree made totally from Kraft Tex and Beacon Fabric Tac.
I first started cutting out the pattern from the Kraft color Kraft Tex:
I used an embossing folder and then colored it with Prima Color Bloom spray:
Then I took paper clay and formed my mermaid:
Then it is just embellishing the rest of the hat, I used the mega flakes on the cheery lynn clock die and added pearls, lace, bling and ribbon.
This will be the one I enter in the contest so, be sure to vote for ME!
I also, created another fascinator out of black kraftex, no, secret I love zebra

I also, embossed this with zebra embossing folder and wiped it with gilders pasteKraft Tex is a great media for any project or scrapbook pages.  Be sure to join the rest of the design time for some great fun this weekend!
