Birthday Brag Books


Whenever I have time and plan ahead, I like to make birthday brag books to bring to children's birthday parties. It's a neat gift because so many people love scrapbooking but don't always have the time to create books for themselves.  This type of book is great to give because the recipient only has to choose their favorite photos from their party and adhere them onto the pages.  When I make these, I love to make coordinating gift boxes.

Email me to order one for your next birthday party. It can be done for any age or gender by simply changing the paper colors.

Winter Banner

Here's a fun twist on scrapbooking.  Banners decorated with scrapbook papers, embellishments, and photos.  I love when you can make something scrappy and use it as home decor.    

I've made several banners for clients and finally this season have managed to make one for myself in a winter theme. I placed mine across the frame of a doorway. They look good displayed across fireplace mantles too.  Some of my clients have ordered them to decorate for showers in a coordinating theme. 

For the sample shown, I used winter photos taken from last year and placed them in between the pennants cut in the shape of circles. It's decorated with Melissa Frances paper, satin ribbons, fibers, rustic bells, and the edges are lightly sanded and browned to give it an old look.

I can design a banner  for any occasion such as a birthday, a child's bedroom with his/her name on it, a baby shower, a specific color and they can be as long or short as you want.  I also have enough supplies on hand to make the one shown.

Valentine Goodies

Tomorrow the kids celebrate Valentine's Day at school.  I thought it would be fun to use some of my scrap paper and decorate some treat's for my son's class. I purchased this fun Valentine stamp set, "Who's Your Valentine" from Stampin' Up. If you don't know a Stampin' Up Representative, I do.  She's great and has lots of fun ideas. Find her here .  Anyway, I love this set because you can jazz up simple things like lollipops, jelly fish, and gum, all the treats kids love. The stamps have adorable little phrases and you can color in the images too.  Because I had so many Valentine's to make, I colored one sheet of paper full of owls and then went to the copy store and made color copies. It seemed  a lot easier than coloring every single image, especially when they are going to kids who will are likely to throw them away. Each little bag is stuffed with lollipops using the "I'm a sucker for you" stamp and jelly fish candy using the "kisses, fishes, and wishes" stamp and then I added in a few more goodies. We had to make a special bag for his teacher that was special and not like the others.  I always enjoy making something homemade each year for the kids.
