Scrapbook Layouts

Hi everyone. I have been scrapbooking for the past couple of days so I thought that I would post a picture of some of my favorite layouts that I have made in the past and the layout that I finished this afternoon.


This is the layout that I finished this afternoon.

Also, as I promised before, I thought I would show you my quick thriftstore project. I refashioned a sweatshirt by basically cutting the collar off. This sweatshirt/project cost me $2 and turned out adorable in my opinion.

Don't mind Avah. I couldn't get her to behave and get off of this thing! You can see the line that I quickly drew on there to cut along.

This is me wearing it after. It is so comfy! I wore it babysitting and grocery shopping.
I also had a periwinkle-ish blue sweatshirt that I did this to. I love how they both turned out and will probably be living in them from now on! Hope you like my projects. Give me a shout out : )

Craft Mood

I have been in a major crafty mood the past couple of days. I refashioned a few sweatshirts I found at the thrift stores and made a couple bracelets. I even went and bought more supplies to make more bracelets. I still need to take pics of my thriftstore finds to post and then I will also post pictures of my current projects!

Thrift Store Madness

My friend and I went on a thrift store shopping spree day today and hit the jackpot! We went to our normal thrift store and also tried the local salvation army and the local DAV. Not only did we find a ton of clothes to alter (which is why we went in the first place) but I bought an old Samsonite suitcase to redo! I have a few things to do tonight and then I plan on taking before pictures of all of my cool finds! Hope everyone is having a great Friday!

Another Valentine's Idea for My Hubby

I was looking through all of the Valentine's candy the other day and came up with a cute idea to send to my husband in his box. I decided to buy enough bags of Hershey's hugs and Hershey's kisses so he would have a hug and a kiss for every day he is going to be gone. It came out to be about three bags each. I found cute little Valentine's boxes at Walmart to put them all in and then made little picture tags to go on them over at

Let me know what you think!

I'm Back!

I know I have been missing in action for two weeks now but I am back on my feet and ready to show off a few things that I have working on. Since Justin left, my first project was to get his Valentine's box. I decided to make him a little card mini (52 reasons I love you) that I saw on Pinterest. Here is my version.

I decided I wanted to add a few pictures to mine so I pulled together a few of my favorites and printed them out on cardstock. I decorated each picture with some cut out hearts, patterned paper, and stickles. When that was done I modpodged over all of them. Each card and picture was distressed with Tim Holtz distress inks (antique linen and brushed corduroy). Let me know what you think!
