Technique Tuesday

Happy Tuesday everyone! I wanted to share some tips for getting a holiday photo done. It is one thing that I start to stress about a little bit, knowing that those cards will need to be mailed out soon!
Start early. Now is a good time to start thinking of getting the family together for a picture. Decide what everyone will wear and what you want the background to be. Even going to pick your tree could be a great photo moment. Find someone to take the photo for you, or set up the self timer on your camera. Take allot of pictures when you are set up. The more people that you have in a picture, the more pictures will be need to be taken to capture the perfect moment (and account for those closed eyes!)

Technique Tuesday- Flower Power

I wanted to give you a little tutorial on how to make a dimensional flower. You can use it as embellishment for a gift, or even to put it on a scrapbook page! I used my example for a gift that I will be giving to my niece this Halloween.

You will need to cut some strips approximately 1 inch wide by 12 inches.

Pleat the strips. Then cut the strips depending on to what size you want the flower to be. Then place the cut strips on top of each other and staple together.

I then used a circle punch to cut out the polka dot paper as the center, and added an alphabet sticker. Happy flower making!

Altered Magnet!

This is a fun, quick and easy challenge. I tend to somehow collect magnets from advertisers. I don't use them, don't want them, but instead of thowing them away, why not turn them into something pretty that you would like to see hanging on your fridge?

So, that is what we are going to do...we are going to take a regular magnet and turn it into a work of art! Please notice that I used papers from the fabulous September kit!!

First, gather your supplies:

Next, glue the magnet to the paper.

While the glue is drying, prepare embellishments. I cut the butterfly out of the paper.

After the glue has dried, ink the edges of the magnet.

Add your embellishments and hang proudly on your fridge!

Technique Tuesday

Next Sunday (Sept. 13th) is Grandparents Day. Mini albums are a great gift for the occasion. We are going to make a paper bag album. It is also a great way to use up allot of your scraps, and extra ribbon that you have.

Once you have the bag assembled you now get to decorate as you like! I usually pre cut all my pages then decide what order I want to put them in. If some pages have large embellishments, try using that as a journaling page.

What is great about these little bag albums, is that pockets are created one the pages that have open ends. I like to staple ribbons to embellishments to create little tags. If you have extra photos that won't fit on your book, you can slide the photos into the pockets.

This is a really nice project to be able to start and finish in an afternoon. Even think of doing them assembly line style for multiple family members!
Have a super rest of the week.

Tuesday Technique!!

For today's technique, I'm going to show you how to make really quick and easy flowers out of fabric!!! If you buy the August kit, you will be all set!!!

The first thing you need to do is cut a strip of fabric. It needs to be about 1.5" to 2" wide and you can determine the length. I used the fabric that comes in the August Kit and used the length of that fabric .

After to cut your strip out, fold it in half. If you iron a crease in it, it will make it easier. After you have done this, run a stitch along the length of the fabric. Do not put in a back stitch. You will want to have extra thread at the ends.


Start at one end of the strip and pull on one of the threads. This will start creating a gather on the fabric. Once you get about halfway, knot the end and go to the other end and pull on one of the strings to create another gather. Then, knot that end.


Double fold the ends and stitch. Arrange the flower and handstitch the layers to each other. Then, add a button or some sort of center for the flower.


Another fabric flower I made for the August kit was a pleated flower. I cut a strip of fabric. Then, put in small handstitched pleats down the length of the strip. Once this is done, connect one end of the strip to the other so that it makes a circle. Add a button or other embellishment for the flowers center.
