For January I was given the KaiserCraft Madame Boutique line to create with. I had a lot of fun creating with this line, it is so right up my alley! I found some pictures that were from the 1970s that I thought would go perfectly with this paper line! I had fun using the Sizzix suitcase die, some gorgeous Prima trim, Maya Road trim, crackle paint and glossy accents.
|Sizzix suitcase die, Maya Road trim, Tim Holtz rosette|
|Flower is the Sizzix layered flower #7|
|Blue flower is from a Prima trim...it's GORGEOUS!|
|I did a lot of fuzzy cutting and tearing of paper.|
|Used a Tim Holtz ornate plate and covered the numbers with glossy accents. do you see the Prima trim? GORGEOUS!|
|This is a picture of my parents wedding with some of my cousins, grandmother and aunts.|
|The wood piece is a KaiserCraft embellishment. I used crackle paint, rock candy on the flower and on photo mat.|
|This was my initial creation for the make & take. Used theTim Holtz mini sewing room dress form die, rosette die, one of his phrase stamps and created a flower out of the tissue tape. The distress inks are the limited edition winter colors. For a tutorial on how to make the tissue tape flower click here. To see where I learned to collage tissue paper then die cut it, click here. And finally to see where I got the idea of using tissue tape on the rosette flower AND no my fav way of assembling rosettes, click here.|
|This is the actual make & take I went with, it was a huge success because it was something different from a tag. It is a cute little mini made from one 12x12 page and a paper rosette. To see where I got the idea for this mini, mini album, click here.|
For February, I received the WeRMemorieKeepers VintageT line...very 80s/90s feel to the line. I am thinking I'm going to do some of my Junior High/High School pictures with this layout! That should be fun and a blast to the past! :)

Until next time...happy crafting!
