Altered Clipboard

This is one of the Make & Takes I did Saturday. The kit is from Scrapbooks 'N Stickers (http://www.scrapbooksnstickers.com) and it is a Scraptique, Inc. Altered Clipboard kit. It was only $5.00 which I thought was a great deal - considering I got everything I needed to alter it - go to their site if you are interested they are $5.00 there too and there is several designs to choose from. They added the zutter bind all book to the bottom of the kit. By the time I got to the booth, they were out of the kit that included the zutter book so I did as much as I could and then I brought it home and finished off the zutter portion at the bottom. It was really fun. Not sure what I am going to do with it - LOL! Any suggestions???? ;o)

Coaster Album

I mixed it up a bit this week and instead of posting my usual Paper Bag Album on Ebay - I did a Coaster Album instead. It measures 3.5" X 3.5". I had not done one in awhile, and I saw the pile of coasters on my shelf and decided to make one. Wasn't really planning on it, but I just felt the urge. I embellished each page and then used my Big Bite to punch holes in each coaster and then connected them with a binder clip and then finished it off with my usual addiction of RIBBONS! LOL! I think it will make a great little gift for someone special.

Travel Journal


This week I altered a Journal for my ebay listing. It has a travel theme (I guess I must really be ready for vacation, because I am finding myself doing quite a bit of travel themed items lately ;o). I also altered a matching Ink Pen that attaches to the bottom of the Journal. I think it will make an awesome Travel Journal for someone.

Mickey Card

Well ladies, I did not get anything done yesterday that I wanted to. Have you ever had one of those Sunday's? I did not even list anything on ebay this week. I just was having one of those non productive lay on the couch days yesterday. Sigh! I guess my body was telling me I needed to rest. So - I did.

Tonight, I made a card for my relative that is still home recovering from surgery. I am still sending her my daily Disney card. Ok, what is the secret tip to keep demensional glue from bubbling? The hands and feet turned out pretty smooth - but I ended up with some big ole' bubbles on Mickey's eye balls. I've tried the smoothing it out with a tooth pick - notice I said "tried" - I think I am just going to get the crackle kind and then let that be my excuse for my bubbly messes. Seriously tho - send me your tips - I really need help. Of course as I am typing this I am thinking to myself - why didn't you just emboss - you goober???? Sigh!

I know all these Paper Bag Albums probably are beginning to look alike. But, I am still successfully selling them on ebay - so I am still making them. This vacation - themed papers I found on clearance (woo-hoo) - have really been eye catching. I think everyone is ready for this winter to be over so that warm vacations can begin! Have a Happy Sunday - I plan to get some scrapping done and a few cards made for sending out this week!

Altered Spiral Notebook


I always like making these - it makes me happy ( I guess that is because I am a ribbon FREAK!!!!). It also is a great little gift to send someone to perk up their day! Hope you have a perky Saturday!
