Etsy Store is OPEN - MyScrappinCreations

I'm very excited to announce that my etsy store is now open for business. I am starting this store to try and help out with the family finances. My husband works full-time and I am a stay-at-home mom. We live in a small area that is struggling. That makes it hard for me to hold classes or have a club so, I am branching out to all of you.

I am working hard to feature some class kits and projects on my etsy store soon and you will be the first to know!!! Make sure that you place me in your favorites so that you can check back often!!!! I'm really looking forward to craft with all of you!!!

You can see my new store here. I'm still working on all the details but some items are posted and I will get more on in the next couple of days!!!

Grace 6 x 6 Page Protector Mini Album

Good Morning, boy did I have fun putting this little album together. It was a little intimidating at first but once I got moving I was going for it!! I found this album on Andrea Walford's blog, she has a short video on it and I figured most of it out from that. I LOVE how the colors and the distressing turned out. I'm not one to leave the edges smooth and nice. They are usually sanded or inked in some way!!!!

CTMH Supplies Used:
Grace Level 2 Paper Pack
Grace My Stickease
Cocoa Ribbon
Cocoa Ink
6 x 6 Page Protectors

Scalloped Circle Punch
Scalloped Edge Punch

Thanks for looking!!!

I used 3 different paper packs to make these and each one is cute in it's own way. I have 3 birthdays coming up this week and thought that these woud be perfect for our February Stamp of the Month - Piece of Cake. This requires very little paper and could be put together with scraps if you have long ones!!!

More Tinkerin - 5x7 Album using Flip Flaps

I had a lot of fun putting this little mini album together. I think it would also be good for the park or playing outside this summer. I found this idea on Andrea Walfords blog, she has some amazing creations and I am still working on some more!!! I used Twilight cardstock for the base, Clover Meadow & Sunny Yeallow for the inserts. The album has a velcro seal so that it holds tight!!! I also used 1/2 of the My Stickease and placed them on the Flip Flaps so that the pictures would tuck in behind them. This item will also be availiable in my etsy store as soon as it's up and running!!!

Snowed In & No Power!!!!

Well, the winter storm came and left us around 13 inches of snow. Since this is our first winter in the country, we will not be going anywhere for a few days. Luckily, we found a generator this summer and we will be running off of that for now. I did get a couple things done but, I won't be able to post them until the power is back on!!!

Tinkerin 4x6 Photo Wallet

I have been working on some projects that feature the Tinkerin Paper Packet and I really like the way that this one turned out!!!! I think it would be perfect for a day at the park or a gift for that special grandma!!!
The Photo wallet was also off of Andrea Walfords blog, she has amazing creations!!! I came up with the measurements myself and made the finished size around 4x6. I used the 1/2 of my Tinkerin stickease on this project and no stamping. It allows 14 photos and a few journaling spots and a velcro seal!!! Enjoy, I had alot of fun putting this together!!!
