Sweet Baby Boy

I made this custom album this weekend with lots of stamping and painting. 

It's going to be a baby shower gift. Makes me happy to think of a new mom getting to open it, and see all these handmade details just for her. 

Due date

Love the feet stamped on the side.

Today I am going to work on an acrylic album kit if my kids cooperate. :) If you're looking for something handmade for Valentine's Day I have several items on eBay and in my Etsy store. Happy scrapping! Dee2

Spread Your Wings

Many projects in the works right now. As in my craft room is a huge mess and every inch of desk space (and floor) is covered. :) In the meantime, here's a layout I did for TCS a few weeks ago. 

I love this pic of Sofie. This was her first 4th of July and she's wearing the first dress I bought her, and a pair of wings I found on clearance at Target. She was such a charmer that day. 

I decided to go with muted colors so the photo with her dark pink wings would stand out. 

I layered the photo with chipboard, ribbon, flowers, and a journaling tag. 

And distressed each of those with paint and glitter. :)

My favorite sticker letters. :)

Cut up this journaling tag I've had since the first month I started scrapbooking. I knew it would eventually come in handy. ;)

I am teaching two classes soon - you can check them out on the left sidebar, and there are a few things on eBay and my Etsy store, or send me an email if you'd like something made custom. 

Hope you like.

Oh yeah, I also wanted to mention I created my own blog button. Very proud of myself. You can snag it from the column on the right if you'd like to link up. ;)

So In Love

Right now I am so in love with pretty pink things. :) Here's another paper bag album I designed last week. 

This one is pink, red, and white. 

Inspired by these flowers which are a contender for Valentine's Day. :) I really love having fresh cut flowers in the house. 

Handmade roses mixed with resin roses. 

I just got a cute twine sampler in the mail so this is my first time trying it out. I am thinking of making some tags with it. Cute stuff! 

So much fun to dig through my flower stash and mix all these textures together. 

I should really stock up on these beautiful Melissa Frances pieces. 

Love this mix of flowers with pink pearl centers. 

So pretty! :) It's in my Etsy Store if you're interested. Now I have to get to work on a baby boy album. Bring on the BLUE. :)

i adore thee

Perky pink-cheeked cherubs sprinkle sweet polka dot perfection. 

Here's a cute paper bag album I made for eBay during my last bout with insomnia. 

Hot pink gingham and shades of creamy brown. Happy sigh. Pink and cream and black - i adore thee.

Be Mine

I've switched the craft room colors over to pink, red, and cream. My room feels so girly now. Yes, Valentine's Day has arrived and not a moment too soon. :) I was too slow to jump on the Christmas craft bandwagon so I am happy to be catching Valentine's in season. 

I just loved this blingy title when I saw it, and knew I would use it for an album cover. 

A very sweet start to the season don't you think? :) This is on eBay if you're interested. Happy Scrapping!

Our Home Mini Album

Here's a mini album I put together for The Crafty Scrapper a couple weeks ago. 

At first the colors of these papers kind of threw me, but I loved them when I added in some black to tone things out. I cut up a kraft tag to layer under the title, and added a vintage clock face and leaf pin.
I misted the title black, and then layered over it with Glossy Accents. I also ran the page through my Big Shot in an embossing folder, but I did it backwards. :P 

I love this green trim. It really softens the look of the papers. Hope you like! Dee2

Love Notes Mailbox

Here's a little cutie I made for my daughter to receive Valentine's Day cards this year. 

I used patterned paper from We R Memory Keeprs, BoBunny, and Pink Paislee to put this together.
I painted the butterfly yellow with C. Hellmuth paint, and then stamped over it with a grid stamp in brown Staz-on ink. 

I cut the little bird and tag from Fancy Pants paper, and misted and glazed the Maya Road chipboard hearts on the flag.

I used this patterned paper from the Fancy Pants Love Birds collection to make the Valentines she will pass out with Hershey's Kisses attached. Cute cute. :)

Now this is what I want for Valentine's Day: 

Don't think it will fit into a mailbox. ;)

Pure Sweetness

 I have started scrapping some pages in the 8.5x11" size. I am totally loving it.

My favorite color for Sofie when she was a baby was this dusky yellow. I wanted to paint her walls yellow and pink, but we ended up with pink with pink stripes. Maybe one day I can talk her into it. :)

I tore a strip of lace from one of her old dresses, and tied it to this photo. 

I misted the doily with Pink Lemonade Maya Mist. I love this picture of her big dark brown eyes. 

She has rosy cheeks like her Momma. :) I love these alphabet stickers. They're about the only stickers I use. 

This page was made with Pink Paislee's Sweetness line which is definitely my new favorite. I love this picture with her chubby baby cheeks and soft baby curls. 

I layered some chipboard with a wooden heart embellishment. 

I love these fabric flowers. I thought about peeling a layer or two off, but I've decided for my personal pages - more is more! :) (All of my supplies came from The Crafty Scrapper if you're shopping.)

Happy Scrapping! dee dee

Maya Road Canvas Album

I taught a class this weekend. 10 ladies of varying backgrounds and skill levels, but we had a fantastic time together and all of them finished with beautiful albums. This is what we made: 

I was going for a very romantic and grungy Valentine look. I used pink and creamy paint and silver and diamond glitter for the cover.

I mixed Maya Mist with Tattered Rose paint. 

Covered some pieces with antique German glass glitter, and stamped an image over the painted canvas. 

It looked simple, but the class was packed with techniques. Hope you all like. :) Dee2

Maya Road Family Album

It's been a super busy week for me: my daughter turned five, my son has the flu, we got in a car wreck, doctor's appointments, design team work, our second car is in the shop.. Eeek! Then this weekend I am teaching at class, and Sunday we have about 30-35 people coming over for a birthday party. As you can imagine I haven't had much time to do the scrapbooking I have been hoping to finish.

I did manage to squeeze in making a mini-album. These Pink Paislee papers were calling out to me. I knew they'd go perfectly with some embellishments that I never had the right paper for. 

I just love the murky browns and blues. They have a beautiful aged appearance. 

I used a lot of traditionally boy colors, but dressed everything up with flowers and bling so I think this album could be for pictures with a son or a daughter. 

I think these jeweled stems and leaves really soften things up. 

I mixed in my two favorite colors yellow and green. :) 

I thought the Jenni Bowlin "Read This" sticker was perfect for the canvas envelope. 

I am hoping something gives in my schedule so I can put together a submission for Paper Cowgirls this week. I thought I had two more weeks to get to it, but the deadline is this Saturday. Stinkers. 

Happy Scrapping! DeeDee
