First Day of First Grade Scrapbook Layout

A friend asked me to make this page for her and I was happy to do it because then I made (a pink) one for Sofie at the same time. :)

I added his name to the backpack
A pencil with vintage ruler trim.
I think it turned out super cute. Hope you like! :)

Custom Cheerleading Scrapbook Album

I just wanted to share some quick pics of a custom album I created a bit ago. :) This is my take in black, red, and glittery. :)

Hope you like! More to share soon. :)

Altered Paper mâché Letter

I decided to alter a 24" paper mâché letter for my friend. She said she liked mustard, light green, and gold colors. First I painted the letter all over with mustard acrylic paint, and then I added metallic paints and VerDay to add age and patina to the letter. I finished the edges with Brushed Corduroy Distress ink. I was super happy with how it turned out.

While I had those paints out I altered some chipboard pieces too. I used metallic green on the believe sign and finished it off with olive seam binding and a beautiful crystal button.
Then I played with several metallic paints to alter this 18" chipboard key. I finished it with hand dyed seam binding and a vintage button.
I am still working on this cross. I wanted to play with the colors released by Pantone - so this is my version of cayenne. :)
I have a few more chipboard pieces to alter. :) Hope you like! 

Custom Wedding Guest Book

I made this guestbook for one of my best friend's last month for her wedding. Her cord were chocolate brown and deep red. :)

I added her wedding invitation and envelopes so people could tuck little notes inside. I wasn't sure at first how to approach the guest book creatively, but I love how it turned out. :) Enjoy!
