Harley Davidson Picture Frame

I made this scrapbook page of my husband and our brand new Harley in 2006.



I thought it would be nice if I put it in a frame, paint it, embellish it just a little and give it to him as a gift. 

I did not realize how pricey custom, unfinished frames would be. 
I searched every store in the 25 mile radius looking for a 12x12 frame! 
After about a month of searching, I finally found one online (at a price I was willing to pay). 

In the end, it made my husband happy and that's what counts!!

Happy Crafting!

I Am A Blogger Newbie!

I finally decided to take the plunge and start my own blog to get involved more with my scrap booking, card making and paper crafting addiction!
Also to hopefully 'branch out' from my comfort zone.

But....not knowing about blogger etiquette, I am still hesitating, and feel I am 'invading' upon other's blogs. 
I see so many blogs that interest me. I am not sure what is okay and what is not okay. 
For instance, when is it okay to grab other's buttons and how do I get my own button, when is it okay to follow a blog, what are labels, permalinks?  

If you have any advice, tips, etc. to this blogger newbie, it would be very much appreciated!! 

Thanks a bunch,
Cindy

~Mom's Graduation Picture~






























I created this scrapbook page a few years ago.

I don't remember any of the details of the paper, embellishments, etc. Sorry! 
The punch used on the corners is EK Success. 

Until next time....

Tea Bag Holder




Good morning!

My sister loves tea and I thought I would make this for her!


























I hope she doesn't see this post as I have not mailed it to her yet!


























The tutorial is from stampingholly on her YouTube channel. You can download the template from her web site inkadinkadoodle.com  

I changed it up just a bit and glued the bottom flap to the side panels. This will hold 2-3 tea bags and fit nicely in your purse!


Patterned paper ~~~ Retro Kitchen by Nicole

Tea bag charm ~~~ Glamour Girl Beads at etsy.com



Thanks for visiting my new blog and would love to hear your comments!

Kindness Card

Welcome to my new blog!

Today I would like to share a card I made for my sister-in-law.

























I used a Fiskars punch to make the scallop edges. 
I also decorated the inside but (of course) forgot to take a picture!


Have a crafty day!
