Want2Scrap Pearl Strips Highlighting Altered Notepads!

Hi, I am back again! I am a note taker and  a list maker...yep, all of the above. So I figured why not make my note taking a little more blinged out!


I bought a bunch of 5x7 notepads and altered the header of each. The Pearl Strips were the perfect accent to add to them. They make a project super cute and super easy. The Strong Collection by Authentique Paper is one of my new favorites and I scraped together some scraps to top them off. The pre-cut circles are the perfect size and great to layer.


I always like to fit in some of the Chevron Bling Borders and 72 Count Pearls always end up on all my projects. I love the touch of white glitter around the circles.


A few fun family rub-ons make this one of those both fun and functional projects you will get to look at each day!

Want2Scrap Fancy Chipboard Word Art Journal Page!

Hey Everyone, I can feel the summer right around the corner and I can't wait to have my kids home each day! At least I say that now, he he! If your like me,  a busy mom trying to stay on top of everything and rarely getting time to do anything for yourself it is nice every now and then to sit down and do something creative. I only get a few hours a month in my studio but I make it count and I love to get my hands messy! I decided to do an art journal page dedicated to ME!


I love the  new Fancy Chipboard Words and since my name happens to be a common nickname, woo hoo I get to make a page after my own heart. Better yet if you want a custom word or name made, you can do that too!


I first added gesso and then used spray ink. I touched it off with some!


If you have not used the new stencil, now is the time to try them. At only $1.99 each, they can not be beat. I love the Arrow Stencils, how fun this is. After creating my background I used the stencil and dabbed on paint with a make-up pad. After drying I used a pen to outline each arrow.


I used the Classy Corner in the Grace pattern. I also added some Purple Rhinestones alternated with glitter over my ink drips.
