Merry Christmas Tag

I hope everyone is having a wonderful day and enjoying this Christmas Season.
I made this tag for the Design Team at The Crafty Scrapper.

 This tag really  sparkles and shines!  It did not take too long to create.

 I hand cut a piece of cardboard into a shape of a tag.  I then added Tim Holtz Adirondac Alcohol Ink Mushroom and Butterscotch and just let it mix together.  I then used modeling paste and used stencils to create the clock, squares, and writing.  I cut out a clock from a cardstock and used tore a corrugated piece had laying around.  Once I glued them on I added by Stampendous embossing powder (red & gold).  Then using Tim Holtz die cut (the holly leaves and etc.) and added the Stampendous on them as well.  I found a small doilie and used Tim Holtz Vintage Photo Ink around the edge. I then glued it all on and added the red Poinsettas and the Merry Christmas to the top left corner.   The tag is completed except for the ribbons!  I looked through my stash and found a red and gold ribbon!  Lucky Me!!
Please the attached close ups.

Thank you for looking and remember there will be one prize winner each day of the 12 Tags of Christmas!

I wish you all the very best this Christmas Season!

Happy Halloween

Happy Halloween!

Well I did this scary layout and used two photos that work perfectly.  One is my grandson Logan as Frankenstein.  I did his make-up and he looks pretty darn scary!  Paityn is a little Angel but look what she is holding!  LOL  I love these kids!

I used Carta Bella – Trick or Treat Collection.  They were fantastic papers to use.
I did fancy cutting, used web cardstock, ribbon, flowers, and stickles.

Please see below all the close-ups!

I love working on a Halloween layout!  You may find this layout at The Crafty Scrapper and on the back you will find all the products that I used.
Happy Halloween Everyone!

Love –  Ginger


Hello!  I have this sweet photo of my daughter Mandy and her son Logan.  She loves to take selfies and this one really got my attention.  I used Illustrated Faith – Whatever is Lovely Collection.  These papers are so sweet and lively just like Mandy and Logan.  All the flowers, heart, etc. came from The Crafty Scrapper.  This layout was so easy to assemble!


Please see the following for close ups!

You can see all the lovely flowers and the chipboard which I painted with Gesso and then added 
micro beads.

Little Girls

I found this little photo of my younger sister Sally, my best friend Suzan, and me (in the middle) while we were living in a small town of 800 people.  It was such a sweet place to live in Van, Texas which is an oil town.  We are standing underneath a willow tree.   It brought me back to a sweeter time and things were so simple and no one locked the doors or were afraid to go out at night.

Please see below close ups of this layout!

Thank you for looking!  I will hopefully see you again!

I did this layout while I was at a scrapbook retreat with three of my good friends.  We have gone on retreats together about 3-4 times a year for the past 11 years!  We always have a great time.  This layout my daughter Mandy took of herself and her son Logan.  She loves taking selfies!!  I found this paper at The Crafty Scrapper.  I added flowers, chipboard which I painted with Gesso and then inked the edges, fussy cutting, and the metal "forever".  This layout did not take long to complete but I really like how it turned out.

See below close-ups of this layout.

Thanks for looking and hope your day is peaceful!

Hello everyone!  I did this little layout at a crop for the Design Team members, workers in the store, and several very special people who come to The Crafty Scrapper.  I love this little photo of my sweet granddaughter Paityn.  She loves to blow kisses and this was a perfect photo of that.

 I can not even tell you the papers that I used for I have had them awhile.  I used Dusty Attic chipboard pieces and painted them with Gesso and then added Crackle paint.  I wanted this layout to be mostly one color which I chose due to Paityn little top she is wearing.

Please see attached close up!

Thanks again for taking a look!

This photo reminded me of my younger sister and I growing up.  We were always dressed alike and we had blonde hair.  We went everywhere together.  Things are so different these days.  We lived in such a small town - about 800 people,  and we walked downtown, knew everyone, and mainly it was quiet and peaceful!  Those are days gone by!!

I had no idea what I wanted to do with this layout.  I used modeling paste on the two large flowers and opted to try a new technique but I just did not do it right.  So.....I just covered it up using embossing powder and ink.  

Please see the attached closer version of this layout.

Thanks for taking the time to look.  After I finished working on this layout I was rather pleased on how it turned out.

  I did this lovely layout in honor of my Mom who passed away this July 4th.  She died of Alsheimer's Disease.  Her Mother is still with us and she will be 103 in August.  Before Mom passed away she opened her eyes and finally focused on her Mother , then smiled and said I Love You!  What a wonderful surprise my Grandmother received.  This was her only child and it was hard for her to see her dealing with  this horrible disease. Towards the end of her of her life she could no longer remember who all 4 children and her Mother was.  
What made this layout so perfect are these gorgeous papers by Graphic 45 - The Gilded Lily Collection. I did this layout for the Design Team at The Crafty Scrapper.
Here is the layout that I created!

I did so many things on this layout.  I inked, used modeling paste, stencil, fussy cut, inks, and much more.  
Please see the following for a closer look.

Please visit The Crafty Scrapper and you will find this layout which the items that I used are on the back!

Love You

  I did this for the Design Team of The Crafty Scrapper.  This sweet girl is my granddaughter Kenzie when she was three.  She will be 7 in May.  I love this pape by Authentique - Treasure Collection.

I took the photo and then added another to the background but turned into black and white.  I really love this effect.  I used modeling paste, flowers, envelope, chipboard, and spray ink.

Please see the close up for more details.
