Donna Salazar's Rose

I created this cute flower using the Spellbinder's Rose Creation dies by Donna Salazar.

Cut two each of the three largest die flowers.

Spritz with glimmer mist and let dry.
Using Glossy Accents glue, fold up the first layer to form a flower bud.

Put a dot of glue on each petal of the next layer.

Fold each petal up and out. Repeat for the next layer.
Pinch the remaining petals making sure the layers are offset. Add Glue between the layers to prevent spinning. Brush on Glossy Accents and sprinkle on extra fine glitter.

Spellbinders Blossom Two Flower

I made this pretty flower using the following supplies:

* Spellbinders Nestabilities Blossom Two dies
* McGill Paper Blossoms Matt and Styluses
* Distress Ink
* Gimmer mist (either store bought or homemade)

Cut four each of the three smallest Blossom Two Spellbinder dies.

Cut a small slit between each petal.

Ink the edges of the petal.

Spray with glimmer mist if desired.

After petals have dried, use your McGill stylus and cup everyother petal up. Then flip the flower over and cup the remaining flowers in the opposite direction.

Cup the center of the flower.

Glue the flowers together, alternating the petals.

Glue a small jewel in the center of flower.

Simple but Sweet

Although I love going all out on a scrapbook page; sometimes less is more. I decided to add only a few simple embellishments to this page and let the sweet photos speak for themselves. I didn't want a busy page to overwhelm the simple photos of my daughter playing with a stick she found on the beach of Yellowstone Lake.

"Beautiful" Layout using Puffed Roses

It has been awhile since I have had time to do any scrapbooking so my blog has become a bit neglected. But, last night I was so inspired by Lisa's Puffed Rose flower torial that I decided to make a layout using them. Check out her blog at The picture is of Cheyenne sporting her new sunglasses while in Yellowstone in 2009. Hopefully I will have more time to scrapbook and keep my posts more current. Enjoy!

P.S. Thanks for the cropping tips Lisa!

Father & Daughter Moment Layout

Here is my latest scrapbook page that I made of Alex walking hand in hand with Savannah in Yellowstone National Park. It was such a sweet picture and one I will always treasure.
