Decor Elements - Eastern Blooms in my Bathroom


Hi Everyone! Well you  know I'm comfortable with posting to you all when I start showing you pictures of my bathroom ! LOL I'm updating my accessories in my bathroom (a much needed thing). Sticking with same wall color. I fell in love with this bath set I found in Marshall's yesterday. In my demo starter kit was the Eastern Blooms Decor Elements 116083. I was hanging up my curtain and towels and Whammy! I knew exactly that I wanted to incorporate the images from the set.( In person, my greens match...but it doesn't look so in the pictures...weird.)

My updating is just underway...still need new curtain and I need a few more towels, but I'm SOOO happy with the direction Eastern Blooms is taking me. This is more intimidating in thought than action. I think I'm going to look it over for some images for my craft room next!

I plan to put a shelf under the vinyl images.Video uploading this am! Happy Crafting! ~Dee

Scallop Square Mini Album- Big Shot


Hi Everyone! I'm using my new Sizzix dies this week. LOVE THEM! I checked the scallop square and Note Card off my Wish List...Whew Hew!!! I can see why everyone loves and uses to enhance their projects. At my stamp and scrap, we were using the cut out left overs as frames. To make the mini album you'll need the following:

Chipboard or other lightweight cardboard. Enough for 2 die cuts for the front and back and as many pages as you want for your album.
Designer paper - 2 die cuts per page for front and back coverage. For my 4 page mini, I used three (3) 12"x 12" sheets of Greenhouse Gala available July 1st.
Coordinating cardstock - Pear Pizzazz, Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie and Whisper White - Pear and Daffodil new colors
Ribbon or book rings to hold pages
Crop-a-dile - to make holes for rings
Misc. embellishments


 This is a sneak peak new stamp set  Friends Never Fade which coordinates with the Greenhouse Gala paper.
Here's the interior pages and how I decorated. When pictures and possibly other embellishments goes into it the rings will allow for the extra bulk. I'll have the option to add pages too. Once I know the final thickness, then I'll come back with more ribbon on the rings, if needed.




Have fun making and Happy Crafting! ~Dee

Hi Everyone! I was planning to finish up a mini-album to share with everyone last night. Instead when I got home from a meeting around 9 pm, the tornado sirens went off! We ended up having several large limbs down and this one right against the house! Luckily no harm to us or the house. Stay tuned! After we clean up the yard tonight, I should be able to post the project. Whew! What a night! ~ Dee
