Practical Scrapper DT Project - Ten Things Team - Premade Flowers

Hello Everbody,

Today I am sharing with you a project for the Practical Scrappers Design Team.  I must warn you that the ladies in this group showed their stuff with this week's challenge!  You should really check out what these talented ladies created!

For My project I used premade yellow, blue, brown, white, and ivory roses of different sizes and some gardenia flowers and doves that were sent to me as a RAK from my Sister, Krafthead.  I am in love with how this wreath came out!  I have been wanting to create something for our front door.  Something that represents hubs and I, and the love we have for all those that walk through our door.  Here is what I created.

I had such tremendous fun creating this wreath!!  Mixing the white and ivory flowers amoung the yellow, blue and brown put such a smile on my face.  I chose the yellow and blue roses because they were our wedding colors.  Hubs chose the blue as color he liked paired with my favorite color yellow for the wedding and the ivory roses represents the color of my dress.  These colors always seem to find their way back into our home.  Even when we purposely try not to use those color, they always find their way back to the house.

The script "F" I cut out of four layers of chipboard to make it super sturdy with my Gazelle; love it!  I painted it with Acrylic paint dabber, Snow, by Ranger so that it would stand out against the raffia heart shaped wreath.  Isn't it just so pretty!!

So there you have it.  My project for the Ten Things Team for Practical Scrappers.  To see some more great projects that are sure to inspire check out what these super talented women have created here.

That is all for today guys.  Thank you all so much for stopping and please leave a comment.  I love to hear what you think!  It inspires me to create more.

Love Ya'll,

Practical Scrapper Ten Things Project - Letter Stickers

Hi Everyone,

Just a quick post to share with you a Design Team Project for Practical Scrappers.  The Challenge was to be creative while using letter stickers.  Well, I am back on my Christmas card countdown and this card was quick and simple and packed with color.

I used the letter stickers to create a fish tail banner and then used that as the main focal image for the front of the card.  Sometimes simple is the way to go and I think it fits using the banner as the focus.  I added some glitter glue instead of ribbon to help draw your eye to the center.

Its a clean and simple card but I really like it!  Not all cards need to be so elaborate.  These clean and simple cards are great for those you know are going to most likely toss the Christmas cards at the end of the season or for those you know are just not going to appreciate a hand made card as much as someone else.  Sadly I think we all know sometime that matches this description.

Anywho, there you have it everybody.  I pray that this card brings you some inspiration.

Thank you all for stopping by and I will catch you all next time. Bye!!  :D


What I used...
~My Minds Eye, Christmas Kitsch collection
~Fiskars Scalloped Daisy punch
~Studio G pink glitter glue
~Recollections white card stock
~Jolee's Boutique by EK Success, Pearl and Gem dimensional stickers

Paper Bag Mini Album Series - Family Fortier - Practical Scrapper Project

Hi Everybody,

Today projects serves as a double duty project, which I love!!  I had wanted to make a "step down" paper bag album.  So the first job of this project is that, this is #2 of my Paper bag series albums and the second job is a design team challenge for Practical Scrappers.  The challenge was to use tags.  I chose to use my tags as photo mats in this family album.

I used a Colorbok collection for the second of my Paper bag Mini Albums.  I love the "step" (this album type may have another name but this is what I am calling it.) look and wondered how it would look as a paper bag mini album.  In this album, one page is shorter than the other pages and creates a step effect.  So here is my creation minus the pictures.

I will add more embellishments once the pics have been added, but I love the idea of using the letters as pulls for the mats.  I can't wait to fill this baby up.  I had so much fun making this and I have another idea in mind for this type of album.  Anywho that is all for today.  I know it has been quite awhile since I have posted anything butI do have a good reason for that and I will share that information in a week or two.  Just need to confirm some information before I share it.  So, there you have it.

Alright guys, I want to thank you all so much for stopping by and I will chat with you all next time.
