Success!

I have mastered the wine tote! I wasn't feeling very optimistic after my first try to alter this thingy but after some risky and destructive moves I have come up with something that I love :) There is only one thing I would do differently on the next one but I am not going to tell you what that is :) Hee hee! This is for a housewarming present for the friend I mentioned in my last post.

I also finished her card. I found this sketch in an old SU! Idea Book which was kind of fun. I think it was actually a scrapbook page but it just jumped out at me. I also love the Bali Breeze paper so use that a lot ... and I have a lot of little scraps of that I can't part with so those come in handy for the photo corners punch. I have also made a point of using my hodgepodge kits. I am just waiting for some new finishes to come out in the next catalog so better make room! I am also trying to use old In Colors that I was hoarding. Again, I think I am going to be in love with the new ones so need to make some more room. So I used Marigold Morning on her card and paired that with Close to Cocoa - I like this color combo a lot :)



I also had picked up some stuff at the dollar bin my last trip to Joann's that I have been meaning to do something with. So, here is a coupon booklet that I thought turned out pretty cute. I totally screwed up the first attempt so need to figure out how to fix that one. This was was stamped with some foam stamps from Archivers using Stazon ink. The purse and cell phone were block foam stamps from Michael's and used up some spare ribbon. If I can "fix" the boo boo on the other one I have I think I might make it a photo booklet for scrapbooking.


I am scrapbooking with friends today and also have some album type projects to work on for Pixie Posie - the photography company of my friend, Jennifer! She takes the most adorable candid shots of kids that you will ever see ... check her out here: Pixie Posie

Catch you all later :) Have a blessed Sunday and be creative!

Visiting you via SCS although I am not below you. I love your site. Is the wine container to actually hold a bottle of wine? It looks so complicated :0!
