Mini Album Love

Hello friends!
I got 4 6x6 mini paper pads from My Min d's Eye's new paper lines 
and made this album with the first pad.

The line is called Miss Caroline by MME.
A really lovely line in a very trendy color combination
this spring of blue, yellow and gray.

I used Hug Snug seam binding and distress inks
to customize my ribbon to match the book.

I also used Prima and Recollections flowers that I found at Michaels last week to coordinate.

One of my favorite border punches is this Martha Stewart Eyelet Lace punch.
I love using it in all my books for an added vintage look.

I listed this album here on ebay.

Wishing you a beautiful day, Lindsey

Favorite Paper Line Ever!

Hello friends!
It's no surprise that I love paper by October Afternoon.
Their cream based vintage paper lines always make me happy, but this line I want to show you today has got to be my favorite OA line ever!

It's called, Farmhouse.
Filled with lovely country and vintage antique patterns, yet so versitale for any themed project.

A whole sheet full of vintage button cards and grey gingham are some of my favorites along with a great sticker sheet!

I created a family themed paperbag mini album using this line.

This paper was so easy to work with.

I love the banner sheet of paper to cut out and use across the pages.

The vintage doily patterns are so cool!!!

I find myself wanting to hoard as much of this paper as I can!

I listed this album here on ebay.
Wishing you a wonderful day, Lindsey

Valentine Tag Tutorial

Hello friends!
A Valentine tag tutorial to share today!

I started with this sweet valentine that I printed on cardstock and cut.

I then gathered up a manila tag and some valentine paper scraps from Crape Paper's Paper Heart line.

I took a paint brush dipped in black paint and flicked paint across the tag.

Allow tag to air dry or use heat gun and then ink the edges.
 I used Pumice Stone Distress Ink.

Then take a few paper scraps to arrange on your tag.

Adhere the valentine to the tag.
I then cut a lace doily pattern from My Mind's Eye Love Me paper line and adhered to the upper corner and added a little paper flower to the center.
I also added a banner sticker and Love sentiment onto the bottom paper strip of the tag.

I wrapped pink twine around the tag and tied off a bow across the lower half of the tag.

Add pink ribbon across the top of the tag to finish.
Simple and sweet!

Have a wonderful day, Lindsey

Exciting News!

Hello friends!
I am going to start teaching!!!
I am going to be teaching a card and tag alongside 2 other ladies for a really fun Card Party class!

Our scrapbook store is called, Scrapbook Generation.
It's an amazing store!

They are well known throughout the US
 for their amazing sketch books by Allison Davis.

I could spend hours here!
Isn't this a pretty sight?!

I love the inspiration I get every time I walk in the doors!
I wish I worked here! Can you imagine spending your days surrounded by all this yummy crafting supplies!

I used to work for another smaller scrapbook store
until they closed in Dec. 2010.
I have missed teaching and can say I am truly thrilled to be teaching again!
It's wonderful to be with ladies who share your passions for creating and showing them how to use new supplies.

My first class will be Feburary 23rd. If you live in the Southwestern part of Missouri and want to come you can contact Scrapbook Generations here.
They also have a blog.
Wishing you a beautiful day, Lindsey
