Your Scrapbook Stash *LYB Twig Line*

Wow! Was I surprise when I got this line. Didn't think very much about this line when it came out but when I got it in my box of goodies (DT Kit) from Your Scrapbook Stash I was happily surprise by how much I loved it.

I actually finished the 2 LO the first day I got my box. Yeah! Those scrappy kinda days are awesome. I knocked them out!


I always print tons of 4x6 pictures and I love using them this way in my LO's. I have so many pics to scrap that I really do take advantage of the times when I can cram as many of them in one LO. Hey, you get a pretty page and you get to scrap 2, 3, 4 or more pics. And I always encourage you guys to do that more too. You don't want those photos filling up in boxes somewhere! Get them out and scrap em people!

Photo below is a close up of the journaling spots that I clustered to create an interesting design. Plus I got to play with my new stamps from Stampin Up Definition stamp set. THEY ARE MY FAVE! remember*laugh*smile*love
I love love love the KI scribble words that came with my kit. I literally love them so much that, that is the only journaling I put in my page. Well actually my tittle and journaling combined. I love it the way it is. It says everything about this pic of my son that I want to say, who is growing up waaaaay too fast in my opinion.

Sorry I got sappy for a minute and had to erase it. I wouldn't want to get in trouble now. Anyway close up pics below of how I placed them and cut them in different lenght to create a better look for them.

Bird Card

I wanted to leave this card without a tittle cuz I want to be able to customize it when I need it. I make my cards that way, so that I could use it for Hello, Birthday or anything that I need it for instead of getting stuck to one thing. I have to have cards ready at a moments notice. It can easily be stamped or added some stickers to make what you need it for.

The Way It Is!
I love the way this card turned out. I created my flowers from one of the matching pattern paper. It is a bit bulky so I might have to think of a way to create a matching envelope for this. Simple but cute.

And last but not the least, I created a fabric flower clip for my baby girl. I know, I know! I am a bit obsessed with my fabric flowers lately but I don't care. I love them and most of all my daughter loves them too. I can never go wrong when creating pretty things for her.

I got a package of feathers from the LYB twig line and I didn't want to just stick them to the page. So I thought about it for a while and decided they would be so pretty in a hair clip. So grabbed my grey silk fabric and went to town. This is what I got.

LOVE how it turned out!

Here is a closer look at the feathers that are sticking up on top. Simple but elegant!
Hope you guys enjoyed my post. I should be getting my next Kit so I cant wait to show you what I have coming up. I already know which lines I am getting so I am already preparing for it. You guys have a great day!

Your Scrapbook Stash assignments

My understanding is with our DT assignments is that we couldn't post in our blog until they are posted in YSS gallery. But since I have been having a hard time posting them (glitch) and it's already March 1, I'm gonna go ahead and post them here too. Here was the last 3 projects I made for Feb YSS assignments.
Always Heartfelt
Again using the Glitz Love Nest collection for this one. I used tons of my doily stash and love how it turned out. A few punched butterfly from Martha Stewart punch, bling from Zva and flower ribbon from Websters to complete the look. Oh I also did stamping, you see the little spots those are all Stampin Up itty bitty background stamps. Instead of messing with spattering I just stamped. It was easier and faster.
Forgot the title *always heartfelt* is also Stampin Up stamps.

since I had plenty of Websters flower ribbon I decided to alter my daughters plain tank top that she loves wearing. She got to wear it for Valentines Day. I just simply hot glued it to the shirt. That's it...easy peasy!
And lastly I made a card using some Glitz left overs and Maya Road flowers. Simple but to the point. I need to practice with my card making skills cuz I am not very good at it. But I am trying people, I really am.
And that's all I got for you guys. I cant wait to get all my new DT goodies so I can start playing again. I tend to slack off when I don't have DT assignments. And then when I do get it I get so much ideas I am bursting at the seams and I have like a million projects going on at once. I have to work like that and I have to stop what I am making and start a new project before I lose the idea. I know I am crazy and a bit nutty but that's me!

More fabric flowers...

So it's been a busy month for me, I must admit. And I haven't shared what I made using those fabric flowers I created and posted on Valentines Day. So here it is. Finally getting to share.
I made a simple and inexpensive headband for my princess. It is just a cheap ole headband from any dollar store. And I just hot glued those fabric flowers to it and that's it. A simple project your daughter or any girly girl you know would love. The hard work is getting all flowers done first but after that you add them to anything. These flower headbands are so popular right now I decided to join in on the fun. Ha!

Side view.

Hope you like it! And please share with me what you made if you decide on creating them too. I would love to see them.
