Here is my feature over at Practical Scrappers today!
About a year ago, I was lucky enough to stumble across an old print tray at a yard sale. I had a vision for my creation and started to collect little items to fill those tiny little shelves. After much time collecting and finding the perfect pieces for my project, I finally felt ready to CREATE! I wanted to create a tribute to my family that could be passed along and added to and changed as we grew and changed. I chose paper, ribbon, fabric, flowers and little items that really spoke to me about our family. I considered using paint, but decided that was a little too permanent for my vision.
You may notice the repetition of the numbers 2, 4 and 6. My husband and I are the 2. Our girls are the 4 and the 6 is all of us together.
There are 6 keys displayed, one for each member of our family.
There is metal and burlap.
A heart for each family member, and a jar full of love too!
The name of each member of our family is also displayed.
The clocks represent each of our birthdays.
There are a few empty spots to add things later and things can be added and changed as our family changes.
I love having an artistic representation of what our family means. Why not find a way to create an heirloom for your family to cherish for generations to come!

Today over at Practical Scrappers we are having some serious fun with mini albums! I took this opportunity to make a mini album of my sweet baby girl! She is not so little anymore, but she is still such a little sweetie!
I had a little tin that had sprinkles for Christmas cookies in it at one point. It had been laying around for a while begging for me to find something to do with it to give it a new lease on life!
I used some flowers, a vellum leaf, and an eyelet to beautify the tin’s lid.
I layered some cardstock and created a pretty simple title.
I wrapped some ribbon and created a bow around the base of the tin. So pretty!
Next, Inside the tin!
I used my Slice machine to cut all of the circles. It does such a nice job and If I had hand cut them, it would not be pretty!!
Some itty bitty pictures of my itty bitty little pretty one!
Add some simple embellies and voila an adorable and simple mini album to cherish forever!
Come on over to Practical Scrappers to see what the other lovely ladies have up their sleeve today!

Today at Practical Scrappers we used an amazing sketch to create layouts! Go on over there to see the sketch and the other takes on it!
Here are some photos of the details!
Thanks for the sketch! I had a lot of fun creating with it!
One of the ways scrappers come up with inspiration for projects is by taking a sketch designed by another scrapper and making it their own. I have never attempted a sketch of my own until now. I have always wondered how hard it would be to create a sketch for a layout or card and was surprised at how quickly it came together. I used Microsoft PowerPoint and it was very simple.
Here is the card that I created using this sketch.
and some close ups of the details
We used this Sketch for a Post on the design team over at Practical Scrappers. Make sure to check out what the other designers came up with!! It was very exciting see my card translated into several different cards! Beautiful job ladies!!
