Simple Bookmarks (Valentine's Project #11)

Hi everyone!

Just a quick post today...just wanted to share some little bookmarks I made for little gifts for friends for Valentine's Day. I have been reorganizing my stamps lately and have realized how many I have that I have not used. So in an effort to actually use some of my supplies I pulled out three new sets. Two of them are from Papertrey Ink. Those sets are Background Basics: Circles and Stitches and Swirls. If you are interested in checking out Papertrey Ink, the online store can be found here. The other set I used was from Hero Arts and it is called Untitled Heart. Since these are going to be used as bookmarks I only used stamps to jazz up the tags.

Here they are:

I know they are very simple but I still think they are very sweet!

I realize that Valentine's Day is just two days away but I have finished three more cards that I will be sharing over on my Youtube channel (AKCaraboo) tomorrow. If you are interested you can check them out here.  So...14 projects done!

Thanks for stopping by!

Altered Purse

Hi everyone!

Many of you may know...if you watch my videos...that I received a really adorable altered purse from Brandy over at Mini Album Scraps for a swap we participated in.

Here's a picture of it:

So cute, right?! Brandy is so talented.

I had just bought a couple of paper mache purses right before I received the one from Brandy. So I decided to be brave and alter one of the purses.

Here's what I came up with:

I really wanted to use that gorgeous brown flower you see on the purse. It's from Kat Scrappiness, an esty store you can find here.

Here is a close-up of that flower:

It's sooo pretty! I have been looking for a way to use one of those in a project and this purse seemed perfect for it.

I have uploaded a video showing how I created this purse on my Youtube channel (AKCaraboo). You can find the video here . I also have uploaded a video on my new die storage organization. I am so thrilled with it!

Please let me know if you have any questions!

As always, thanks for stopping by!

Something new...a charm bracelet

Hi everyone!

I need to begin with an apology to those that actually read my blog. I haven't been very good about updating it. I have been uploading videos to Youtube instead. I really should do here's my promise to try harder. :)

I was doing a swap over at Mini Album Scraps for Valentine's Day and I decided to try my hand at making a charm bracelet.

What do you think?

Here are some close-ups:

I also did a video with some tips on how I made it. You can find this video here. I enjoyed making it so much that I think I may see if there are any local classes on jewelry making. I would like to learn a little bit more about putting the pieces together.

As always, thanks for stopping by!
