Ribbon Flowers

I did a little blog hopping this weekend and came across a tut for ribbon flowers. I made a few samples this morning. I used grograin ribbon, satin ribbon, and a few dollar ribbons I found at Michael's. I think they look pretty good for my first try.

12x12 Mini Album

I created this mini album with one piece of cardstock, and then created the tags with different pieces of scraps. I made a belly band with a thin strip of cardstock and small piece of ribbon. Nothing special just trying to keep busy by crafting. Let me know what you think.

Altered Manila Folder

On Monday, I had given a Cricut demonstration to show a few ladies how it works and what it can do. We had a great time. I also gave a demo on how to make this altered manila folder. This would make a great gift for the upcoming holidays. Michael's & ACMoore has some pretty manila folders for $1 with three in a package. All it needs is your embellishments. Happy Crafting!

Lollipop Rattles

I worked on this project using the "New Arrival" cartridge. I seen a similar project in a magazine and just decided to make these up real quick. I will have to try and get some single colored lollipops for a better effect.

Mini Album

I was inspired to do a mini album after watching a video by Laura - Followingthepapertrail. She is wonderful in designing and sharing her ideas. This would be my first chipboard mini album. I used the "Que Sera Sera Designer Paper Pack", Chipboard from Bind-it-all, a few embellishments I picked up at the CKC Scrapbooking Event. Leave me a comment and let me know how I did on this one.

Road Trip

This booklet was created with the Printing 101 and Going Places cartridges. It reminds me of the road trip to Valley Forge Convention Center in PA. It's simple and easy to assemble.

CKC Valley Forge Scrapbooking Event - PA

A co-worker and myself went to the scrapbooking event in PA on Saturday. We even took a scrapbooking class "Simple Summer Album" and received a free tote. We did a 5 hour shopping spree at this event. Unfortunately, I didn't get to do one of the make and take projects. We really enjoyed the event since it was a first for the both of us. Some of the booths I visited were, want2scrap, and Here are a few items that I picked up while we were there.
