Today Life Is Good Custom Album

Hey there friends, Happy Tuesday. 
I have been doing so many photoshoots lately I decided to use one to
create a mini album using the Creating Made Easy May 2016 Kit this time!
It was fun to use the pics from the shoot to create an album. 
I cannot wait to take my boys out and get pics this weekend. 
I am dying over these Webster's pages papers and sticker embellishments. 
 On this mini a filled in the pages with patterned paper and took scraps to make 
contrast edging. 
 Also on the front of each page I used gold metallic paint around the edges. 
There were a couple pages I wanted the matting to be larger so I painted the entire page,
then used a large matting that overlapped the chipboard pages of the 
Clear Scraps Tabby Album from the kit. 
Even the fun vine ribbon was included in the kit, it is a beautiful scrapbook kit this month 
and perfect for not only scrapbooking but mixed media as well. 
Grab yours while they are available, only 29.99!

LIVE Desktop Plaque Craft

Hello Monday and help friends!
Have you seen the Creating Made Easy May 2016 Kit? I mean it is drop dead gorgeous! Such a combo of colors and style, I am in love!
Included in the kit is the Clear Scraps LIVE Expression with is so fun, plus some gorgeous Webster's Pages papers and stickers that you'll love as much as I do. 
For this desktop sign I made (To remind myself to LIVE and breathe) I painted the back of the LIVE Expression with paint so the front would be nice and glossy. Then I put pearls all over the front using a Pearl Pen. 
After I allowed everything to dry, I trimmed out pattered papers that was all included in the kit and made it the perfect desktop size. 
Using Beacon Zip Dry adhesive I adhered the Clear Scraps LIVE Expression to the paper dotting it where the pearl dots are to perfectly conceal the adhesive. 
I also added some stickers form the May 2016  kit that were fun sentiments. I then took a heavy duty card stock, folded it lengthwise and adhered half to the back so it would stand tall on my craft desk. 
I am willing to bet this Creating Made Easy May Kit flies off the shelf, between the Mini Album, and perfectly adorable papers, it's going to go quick so grab yours now!
Here is a link to the details in the kit and it's only 29.99 including USA shipping. 
Happy Monday and happy crafting friends!!

Thanks for staying with me through the divorce and my crafting less! I love you all.
