Guess what....

I have a free file for you and you are going to love it!

I used to be so scared of digital scrapbooking but now I love it and wish I could sit in front of the computer all the time. I love the idea of printing out my digital layouts and then adding embellishments to them. I also love the fact that I can now make my own blog hop buttons and invitations and anything I want without limitations.

If your interested feel free to use my code at the top and get the money off and the free money after purchase. If you have any questions please email me at and I will be more than happy to help!





I am sorry it has taken a week but I finally have the winner of the MyMemories V3....

Zenita Smith

Her comment was:

Congrats Zenita! Please contact me before Feb 1, 2012 for your code.

Thank you for following!

Based on a book blog hop

Scroll down for the Fabulous 50 blog hop...

You should be here from my crafty friend Anita over at but if not please head over to Tanya - to start over and you will be so happy you didn't  miss anythin!!!!

Okay so for this hop I wanted to use my favorite books and make a box and album on all four books but I just didn't have all the time today so I was only able to finish this box before I stared cooking.

This is the top of the box and just the beginning...
These letters I got from the DCWV embellishment box and even though they were very glittered in red I had to use the silver glitter paint to give it the Cullen sparkle

I love how the box looks like its leather
really I just applied black Gesso and used wild strokes of bright red paint repeatedly but you can still see the cool

Doesn't this look so cool!!!!
The flowers are flowers that I have from my own stash

I painted the flowers with silver glitter paint
I am not done yet but the inside is going to have both worlds decorated within and the album is going to be loaded with my favorite quotes and photos.

I hope you like it!! I will be posting a youtube video when I am all done with the inside and the album.

Don't forget to leave comments so you can be eligible for the candy.

Fabulous 50 day 3

Welcome to day 3 of DDscrafts Fabulous 50

This hop starts with Deb at DDscrafts and you should have found me from Tanner - but if not please head on to Deb and start there. Remember to comment on each post.

On to my project:

I used my sentimentals cartridge for the card. I cut the light blue and the envelope at 4.25 and the second layer of the card was just at 4 so that I can layer it. I have to admit that at first all I knew was that I have only used this cartridge once and I was determined to use it again. I hope you like it!
I used the same cartridge for the layered butterfly and in the upper right corner is a PinkByDesign Happy Birthday stamp
I cut the smaller card at the score marks for the inside of the card. I used the Happy Birthday stamp from PBD as well.

Next stop is my ubberly talented friend Gloria:
