My Darkest Moments - page 3

For this page I used the soot stamped image that I did from a previous challenge in the Dark Arts Forum of the Scrap Shack and a free photo of flames from the internet.  I used the Nestabilities Oval die to make the opening in the center of the flames.  I used Spice Marmalade Distress Stickles to write the title.  This page depicts burning desires that lead to death.

Expandable Card Box

Front and top of box:
Inside of box:
Back of box:
I made this Expandable Card Box at the very first Dymonz Stampers Club Workshop on Saturday!  It was so easy and so much fun to make!  I used the Butterfly Prints Stamp Set, Butterfly Punch and ink pads by Stampin' Up to make the dimensional butterflies on the back of the box.  I made the closure with hidden Basic Grey Magnets.  My daughter loved this box so I gave it to her.  My husband asked me to make him a "more manly one" so he can put receipts in it.  I'll post a picture of it when it's done.

ABC Scripture Challenge - Qualified

I used the Nestabilities Scalloped Ovals and the Fancy Tags dies to make the journaling mats.  I added Platinum Stickles to the centers of all the flowers on the 12x12 paper and to the title.  I love this background paper and wanted to show as much of it as possible.  I added a QQ Frosted Butterfly.

My Darkest Moments - page 2

Croms over at the Dark Arts Forum of the Scrap Shack encouraged us to do something with a digital image of a dragon.  Well, this is what I found that I could use in My Darkest Moments album.  I colored this image with Martha Stewart Colored Pencils and added some silver metal corners- nothing fancy, but I enjoyed doing it.  DANCIN' WITH THE DEVIL depicts my days of purposely "living in sin".  Praise the Lord that those days are gone!!!

Desk Caddy

I saw a video by Loretta over at the Scrap Shack of a desk caddy
that is so cute and practical that I just had to make one.
I made this one for my mother.  It's not as fancy/pretty as others,
but it's useful and I enjoyed making it.

Well, my mother didn't like it (that's my mother).
I love it, so I'm using it in my Scrap Space.

ABC Scripture Challenge - New

ABC Scripture Challenge - Motive

ABC Scripture Challenge - Lonely

I did this layout at the 2011 GASC.  I added the title and the Scriptures.

ABC Scripture Challenge - Know

I did this layout at the 2011 GASC.  I added the title, butterfly and Scriptures.

ABC Scripture Challenge - Journey

I originally did this page for a challenge over at the Scrap Shack.  When I saw that the title for J was Journey, I just had to use this page.  There were only two changes made.  I added the Scripture over the right side of the photo and then the title in the lower left corner.

Toilet Tissue Roll Mini Album

I saw a You Tube video of someone creating a mini album out of toilet tissue rolls and thought "Oh, how cute.  I can do this".  I had some papers, tabs, etc. from a kit from s.e.i. leftover from one of my classes at the 2010 Great American Scrapbook Convention that I thought would be perfect for this project.

Here's my very first Toilet Tissue Roll Mini Album:
Front cover:
 I used Linen Acrylic Paint on the inside and outside of the toilet tissue rolls.
I added a few dots of Liquid Pearls here and there:
These photos really don't show how pretty these papers, etc. are:
Back cover:
Front of each tag that is tucked inside of each toilet tissue roll:
Back of each tag:
I left lots of spaces for photos and journaling.

I did this project at Stampin' Dymonz' Birthday Bash Crop on Saturday.  Had a blast as always!  I love croppin' at the Scrap Shack!

Dark Arts Prizes

I was entered into a drawing because I submitted the cover of My Darkest Moments Album to the Dark Arts Forum at the SDSS and I WON!!!  Yay me!!!  The stamp set is From the Crypt by Stampin' Up, the key charm is from Stampin' Dymonz and the rest of the charms came all the way from Scotland from Helen.  I'm looking forward to using these stamps and charms on the upcoming pages of my mini album for submission to the Dark Arts Forum!

Kayla's 6th Birthday Mini Album

This is the mini album that I made for my Granddaughter's 6th Birthday Celebration at Chuck E. Cheese's.  It's a chipboard album bound together with duct tape, that seems to not work well if you leave it in a car all day while the weather outside is 100 degrees.  Go figure!  Well, anyway, it was lots of fun to create!

1-on-1 ATC Swap - Fireworks

The theme for this ATC was Fireworks and you had to use red, white and blue.  I used TH Distress Inks to sponge the blue background, the edges, the small red fireworks and the large firework.  The raised center was cut using the Nestabilities Crown Ovals die.  I put stickles over the large firework and made the dots around the oval.
