Mini Album Madness!

Finally! Finished and posted my mini album! This is the album i have been working on off and on for months, I love the way it turned out, and I hope everyone else will to! The Prima paper was so beautiful that it didn't call for much embellishing, and the colors are wonderful... They're both Shabby and vintage yet perfect!!

Mail Art and Mayham

Hello All! 

I hope you're all having a great day! Today's mail art was inspired by this awful heat (and humidity even though the desert isn't humid) Every time i go outside i feel like melting! I apologize for not scanning this in do you can see it perfectly, but My scanner/printer isn't working... I'm wondering if the lightning might have gotten it the other night...  I'll make the hubby look at it tonight... Also the matching stamps may be used on it when i send it out so they are a preview of what will go with it! : D

What I used:

I hope you all enjoyed this little piece of mail art!

Furever in my heart

A Very sad day in my home today. I lost my best friend. He was around 16 years old, but healthy. he was fine when we went to bed at 1:30 am, then my dog woke us up to tell us at 6:30am-ish am and he was doing awful... We took him to the vet as soon as they opened and they said he had a stroke, and sadly he passed while we were at the vets office... We will miss him greatly!

On a better note i received some much needed happy mail today, and i will try to post a photo soon!

Happy 4th of July!

Happy 4th of July!!!

First thank you to all of those who fight, and have fought to defend our freedom!

Last night I created a fun vintage style stamped tag to hopefully give everyone a little independence day inspiration. I hope you all enjoy!

For this tag i used the Tim Holtz distress ink in: Frayed Burlap, Walnut Stain, Chipped Sapphire, and Fired Brick. The truck stamp is also by Tim Holtz, the flag, stars, fire works, and freedom stamp is by Cloud9 designs. (I'm not sure what brand the background word stamp or the 2 charms are.)

 (I also created this fun Asian style piece of mail art)
