My Mini albums

BasicGrey's "Euphoria" line
I also used the storybook cartridge and lots of stickles!

This is the story of dh and I the first 5 years.

It reads "Once upon a time..... a wish came true"

My mini album is now on the BasicGrey website!! I love BasicGrey so it really is a huge honor! You can check them out at www.basicgrey.com

Here is my "famous" Mini album

Here are a few of the pages (without the pics)

I used BasicGrey's Scarlet letter and Little yellow bicycle love notes.

Oh and just in case you are wondering, this is what I started with..... Tfl!!

I Used the same chipboard for this Mini book as well.

Here are the pages Before pics.

I used "lyb love letters" and BasicGrey's "Bittersweet" line.

Since I had so many pics from last christmas I decided to make a mini-book of the event. Here is the cover

The before pic..

I covered the album with pp DCWV Christmas stack, and then added ribbon and embellies, I added stickles to most of the flowers and santa. I inked te edges of all the pp and titles.

Altered Drink Holder

This was the case our wine coolers came in. I thought it would make a cute carrying case so I got started. I reinforced the bottom and altered it for use as a tool caddy. It is very sturdy and I love the way it looks on my table!

Hello Just an update on my carrying case! I was asked to show pictures of what I store in it, so here it is! These are the tools I use every time I scrapbook, so I can just carry them over to my scrap table and start working!

I Also made one for my mom, She requested muted colors of green and brown.

I took a picture of what I started with as well. If you have any questions feel free to ask!

I covered and decorated the bottom with ribbon and grungeboard

sorry this pic is a little dark. I covered the top with brown carstock and stamped it with gold swirls. I then applied mod podge over the top with a paint brush.

Thanks for stopping by!


I made my own version of the clip-it-up, and I started having problems with the paper clips! So I found a great deal on the real clip-it-up clips and re-did mines with them.. I am proud to present my improved clip it up!

I used:

  • Two lamp shade rings
  • A lamp pole
  • Paper clips (large and small) Clip It Up Clips
  • An old lamp base
  • some washers and bolts

    I love it and it spins! It is so easy to make and I can find what I need easily.. For more details or instructions just email me or leave a comment and I will forward it on. Thanks Shayla

Stickles Storage Frames

Update! I outgrew my picture frames and now have a second option for those with shelves or cube units, same idea just velcro the bottoms instead!

It works better when you store your Stickles upside down. They flow better and it eliminates the air pockets they normally get. Here is the finished project, I am going to show you what I did to get here.

First you want to buy an clear frame and velcro, you can get them both at
walmart for around 2 dollars.

You need to attach the velcro to the frames (I suggest using the fuzzy side for that)

Next attatch the opposite side to the back of the bottles. It takes a few hours for the bond to become permanent so I would leave them detatched and come back later to finish...

After a few hours I came back and attached the bottles upside down

You can use squares or long strips, I used both. It just depends if you want them spaced out or not.

I have also filled the backs of the frames as well. I will show pics later today.

This works easy and you can always add more as your stash grows!

This works great for embossing powders and sugar coating. I added my sugar coating to the back of my stickles.
