"Family" Album I made for Scrapbook Expo

Here was an album I made for The Crafty Scrapper for Scrapbook Expo in Grapevine last weekend!

This album is by Heart of Texas Studio and the paper is by Prima!  Many of the embellishments are by Prima and Maya Road.  All of these beautiful products can be found at The Crafty Scrapper in Waxahachie, Texas!

To see the album in person, check it out at the store!!  I've had several requests that this be a class, so I'll be working on getting dates for it soon, so keep looking on The Crafty Scrapper's website for details!  under Events...

Altered Circus Wagon...

Shelley, here with a fun altered piece made with Splash of Color's new HULLABALOO Collection by IOD!
Let's check out this fantastic birthday collection! IDEmFvq0-Btv8R8s8ByftrzdvtvGZPHDNjOkd1lA05E
Isn't this paper the best?  It's so beautifully colored, and has a vintage feel!  So many birthday collections are just very simple.  This one is SIMPLY AWESOME!

Here's my project!!
I took a wooden circus piece and used some of the new Viva Colour products and this gorgeous IOD line to make a fun little conversation piece!

On the bottom, I used Purple Precious Metal Effect Paint, covered with Gold Crackle paint.  It turned out really lovely!
On this side, I used Hullabloo DS paper and some sentiments from the sticker sheet.

On the top, I used Turquoise Precious Metal Effect Paint.  It has such a smooth, silky texture, that is just perfect!
I used Viva Colour Paint Pens in Dark Carmine, Sunny Yellow, Light Moss, Opal, Light Blue, and Graphite.  I also used the Violet Pearl Pen.  These are so fun to use, and the colors went well with this birthday paper!

To make the top banner piece, I used Jubilant DS paper, with Special Day DS paper underneath!
I painted the little wooden bars with Blackberry Viva Colour Precious Metal Effect Paint.  This paint is so shiny and easy to apply!
I hope you enjoyed this project and seeing the new IOD HULLABALOO Collection, which should be arriving at stores soon!

Have a great day!

Love and Respect signs for Rush Creek Church

The pastor at our church asked the congregation to make some signs and take pictures of them for our Facebook pages.  They were to say "Love" and "Respect" to generate interest in his upcoming series at church.  Since I had just returned from CHA in California, I decided to do something similar to what we had done in Dyan Reaveley's class there!  So, I led our Life Group after church on Sunday in making these signs!  They had a great time, and the signs were awesome!

This is a picture of myself and my husband!  Good job, honey!!

And, he said wasn't crafty!  Whatevs!!

James and Amy did a fantastic job, as well!!

Cami and Trey's signs were groovy!

Kathy and Raul did a great job!!

Macy couldn't be left out, either!  Hers might have been the very best one!!

Cami and Trey are our leaders for LifeGroup! 

This was such a fun time!  Try it yourself, sometime!!
