Sissix Onesie Frames

At the ScrapShack, I created a project for the Cricut, Bigshot Group. This project is a go-green project because I used discarded clear packaging to create two adorable baby picture frames using the Sissix onesie die. How did I do it? Well I cut the onesie using my Big Shot and then I used another Sissix die (Frame#2) to adhere to the front of the frame. I punched holes in the sides to attach some jewelry chain. I also used the negative from the Frame#2 die and adhered it to the inside of the back of the frame. I love how this came out. I hope you like it too.

Ribbon Layouts

As a designer with StampinDymonzScrap Shack, I create layouts in which I try to inspire others to put their memories on the pages. Currently, we are doing a challenge that is called, RIBBON and MORE SCRAPBOK CHALLENGE. For this challenge, each participant has to include not only ribbon but buttons, flowers and stitching on their layout pages. FUN! FUN! FUN!. Here are two layouts I did to spark the fire.

An Altered Book

Books have been apart of my life a long time. I LOVE books. There are so many books out there and so little time to read them all. So why not recycle some into a project that you can use. I recently stumbled upon a project that uses the pages of a book to house notes and other tidbits of information. I got the inspiration from this blog: The tutorial for the project can be found here. My altered book measures about 83/4 x 51/4 inches. I used 3
different colors of glimmer mist to color the pages. The colors are: peach delight, lemon zest, and sweet pea. My altered book will sit next to my computer to serve as a catch-all for my stickies and other thing I want to get my hands on quickly. Try one. I bet you'll fall in love with it.

Scrapbook Inspiration

Over at Stampin Dymonz Scrap Shack, we have been challenging ourselves to find inspiration all around to motivate us to do layouts with our photos. Several ladies joined in the challenge. Here is a sample layout that I did to keep my layout juices flowing.


I recently saw a project that showcased a unique type of flower. I searched for what I thought to be the tool that created that flower. This is the product I found: It is the "Hana-Ami" Flower Loom. It is a Japanese word for 'stitched flower'. This tool comes with various looms to create a unique flower that you can use on your projects. It can also be used with various types of materials, i.e. ribbon, yarn, fabric, raffia, etc. I made a few samples to show.
