Vintage Cigar box

This is a Vintage Cigar box i made for me to keep my vintage little nicknakes in.  I used paper from DCWV, The chipboard frame i purchase from etsy.  I do believe her name on etsy store is studio calico, i will double check that and fix it if i am wrong.  She has alot of chippie pieces she sells and i just love it because i cannot find any of these sizzix dies anywhere.  The clock and key i bought at michaels, i just love them.  This image is from Graphic 45 boarderline collection, love them images in that collection.  The flowers i used on here are all from Wild Orchid Crafts.  I had some pearls in my stash and added some on here. Suzie Crafter always puts pearls on her projects and i had to give it a shot, she is such an amazing scrapper.  The Lace and button is from Created by Martha's zibbet store, who i am part of the design team.  You should really check out her site, amazing gorgeous laces and buttons... she is at  She can be found on Face book as well.  Her fan page is creating is fun.  Beautiful projects on there by her DT...  The pearl flower trim around the cigar box is from Karla's etsy store.  Thanks for stopping by and i hope you enjoyed this project. HUGS

Interactive Layout page

I was looking through canadian scrapbooking magazing and there was this beautiful page done of William and Kate for a love page.  I fell in love because of the layering and the interactive pages she put onto a 12x12 page.  We do cool things in mini albums for hidden pockets, flaps and interactive spots so why not try it on a layout.  I was by no means able to lift her layout, and trust me if i could of I really would of, it is just stunning.  So i lifted the idea, and i am in love with this page.  I hope you enjoy it as much.  All of my laces, buttons and the tags where purchased from Martha Pineda's zibbet store, who I am proudly part of her design team at  You should check out her fan page on Facebook, once she received 150 likes she is giving away a 25 dollar gift certificate for her store.  You won't be disappointed.  It is under creatingisfun.  I hope you enjoy the Layout and leave me comments and feedback, love to hear from you.  HUGS. ps, sorry for the lighting on some of this.  My camera skills are not the bes.

a couple of desktop calendars i created for some friends

The calendar in black and white was done with K&Co papers that i really love and i have been hoarding. All of the flowers are from I Am Roses at  Love these flowers so much and i can't live with out them as you can tell by my projects.  The black lace i had to cut into which made me sad, but it was overhanging to much on the canvas.  I received the lace from Marthas zibbet store at who i am part of her new DT team. I hope you like.. tfl xo

this was done on a wooden plaque i purchased at my local dollar store.  I created my own paint color with buttermilk cream, brown and tropical blue to create a nice vintage blue gray color.  I love making my own colors to suit my projects.  I used prima lace around this and again I AM ROSES are the flowers i used.  The calendar was a downloadable calendar we received from Tonya Gibbs at physco moms.  Thank you Tonya for the inspiration for doin these calendars.  I used recollections papers from my local michaels.  If you have any questions just leave a comment and i will get back to you.  thank you for stopping by.
