Scrap Stash Yard Sale

Well I know I have been MIA for a little while but I have been getting ready for the Scrap Stash Yard Sale. Over the past few weeks I have went through every inch of my craft room getting ready for this sale. There were some days I only had a small path to walk where I had everything out on the floor but I was determined to destash and organize my room a little more. I will be honest I could not get motivated to craft until I got it finished. It was hard putting a few of my items in the sale stack, but I thought to myself this or something new and usually something new won.
The Scrap Stash Yard Sale is this Saturday, June 15 from 10am to 2pm so if you are in the Nashville area there will be several of us selling our stash for very reasonable prices. Most of my items are priced from $0.25 to $5.00. I will be selling my Silhouette SD, Crop In Style XXL Tote, tons of embellishments, wood mounted stamps, card making items, and much much more. So if you are in the area come join the fun.

The sale is located at Concord Community Church of the Nazarene - 9826 Concord Road, Brentwood, TN 37027. I hope to see you there!

Bachelorette Party in a Box

Today I want to share with you a fun way to store memories of parties past. Last year during our Christmas in July blog hop Carol from The Answer is Chocolate shared a gift idea titled “Paris In A Box” and I fell in love with the idea. My best friend got married a few years ago and I still had all the party favors where I was planning to make a shadow box, but due to the nature of some of the favors and pictures I decided this was the best way for her to keep those memories all locked up so I created the Bachelorette Party in a Box.

I started with a wood box I purchased from Hobby Lobby. I used decorations from the party to decorate the box and used the invitations for the theme. This is the invitation I created using lace at the top for the “garter” and tulle as the fishnet stockings.
This was the inside of the invite

For the top of the box I used pink cardstock and a piece of lace overlay cardstock. To finish off the top I cut pieces from the feather picks that were part of the centerpiece that night and pink and black flowers I also purchased at Hobby Lobby.

For the sides of the box I used black and pink ribbon. I then added the black rhinestones to the front I purchased at Michael’s. The lace around the top of the box is the same lace I used for the invitations.
Now comes the fun part – the inside of the box.

I lined the inside edges with pink cardstock and zebra print ribbon for the bottom and clear rhinestones for the top. Then I lined the bottom and top of the box with zebra print paper. To finish the top I attached the invitation along with pieces from the black feather picks and pink feathers from her boa as layers under the flowers.

I wanted her to remember some of the fun and crazy events from that night so I created an acrylic album using the same pink, black, and zebra print from the party. I decided not to show the inside pages of the album to protect the innocent from the crazy fun we had that night.

Once I had the box and album finished I added some of the party favors and decorations in the box. Now she has a way to remember the last night of her single life without it being on display for everyone to see.

I created a similar box for my sister’s 50th birthday bash that I will share with you later.
I link to these parties.

Happy Mother’s Day & Prom 2013

First let me start off by wishing all of you mothers a Happy Mother’s Day. I hope you had a wonderful day filled with those you love.

I have a new toy! I have been using my Silhouette SD and wanted the Silhouette Cameo for larger projects! I am now in love with my Cameo because I can cut more images and work with larger images for my projects.   

Last night Brandon went to his first prom with his beautiful girlfriend Alexus, so I thought I would share a few of the photos. Aren’t they a cute couple? Everyone had a great time and made it home safely.
