A Fun New Way to use Sleek Pearl Strips!

Happy Easter Everyone, I hope you enjoy this wonderful day with those that you love! 

I just wanted to share with you on this sweet day a new way I have found to use the Sleek Pearl Strips. I love to make my own handmade flowers. With a little hot glue, ink, and pattern paper you can make gorgeous flowers. I always like to dress them up with a little glitter and bling from Want2Scrap©. I did just that on this altered tin.


I altered this tin for one of my nieces. After I made this flower I wrapped 2 different strips of pearls around the edges and dusted it with some glitter.


What a great little touch to really dress up this tin.


I added a cluster of flowers and dropped in some Coral Pearls, such a pretty way to add a little dimension and interest.


I cut a single bloom from the Rose Ribbon and it created a nice feathery look to highlight the flower and pearl cluster.

Chevron Border Rock!

Hi All, It has been a while since I posted. I am in the process of a home renovation and it had thrown everything out of whack. I am also in the process of trying to find new photo editing software I am happy with and I am not thrilled with any so far. Bear with me during my learning curve. I have not done a layout it AGES! I almost felt like I had forgotten how to scrapbook a felt good to remember! I dug into my photos and pulled out one of my favorites and just went to town.


I set a few rules for myself in designing this layout. I only allowed myself to use the products I had sitting on my desk...thank goodness I never got around to putting my paper away last time I played. I love the fun mix of patterned papers I used. A splatter of spray ink on the background also added some pops of color.


One of my favorite things about Want2Scrap is how easy their product make it to dress something up. I dressed up a doily sticker here with a fun bling circle...immediate POP! You have to check out these Nestabling Circles.


I LOVE the chevron trend. I have totally fallen for it and these Chevron Bling Borders are my favorite product. I just ordered a bunch more...I need my bling and I need my chevron. Perfect together!


I mean seriously, how cool is that!
