Christmas Tag Album with Melissa Frances and Basic Grey

I (well, not me...really my husband makes me) have to wait until the day after Thanksgiving before the Christmas decor makes it's long trek down from the attic. Almost here! Almost here! I love the magic of Christmas, and my children are just old enough to be enthralled with all of the special magic Christmas brings. As I sat and thought about how Thankful I am for my family, I had a wonderful time creating this look back at the last few Christmas' with my children. I can't wait to display this on my scrap desk!! I loved mixing the vintage styles from both Melissa Frances' Christmas line and Basic Grey's Wassail line. Both so beautiful with lovely muted colors. I loved the Melissa Frances Christmas Ticket Book, I also covered some of Melissa Frances' chipboard shapes with fabric for extra texture, plus I added a few Tattered Angels Glimmer and Glass chips. Happy Thanksgiving! (and I can start decorating on Friday!)

She's gone BATTY! Pink Paislee and Glimmer Mist

I've been playing with my Glimmer Mist and Glimmer Mist screens and have had the best time!! I wanted to do a super simple Halloween layout of my daughter highlighting her bat costume, but it needed some magic. I wanted to mimic some of the swirls on the Pink Paislee paper. So I took the Fanciful Glimmer Screen swirl , laid it on my already torn out moon, sprayed Gold on the moon to get the swirl effect, then quickly flipped the screen over (with the wet Glimmer Mist on it) onto the black Pink Paislee Vintage Moon. Sooooooo cool! Glimmer Mist is my new favorite thing. I joke that I spray everything, and seriously wonder if I could spray it in my hair :-).

Voice Recorder Christmas Card

Here's how you make someones Christmas a little extra special: Make a cute little Christmas card, attach a voice recorder, record a special message and mail to the lucky recipient. I guarontee (that's guarantee with a southern accent!) you'll make someone smile! I think I'm going to let my kids record a special song and send it to their great grandmother! I was thinking how special this might be for someone far, far away....

These are so easy to use, you just press the little red record button with a pen and start singing! You push the big button to play the message. I designed my card so most of the recorder is hidden and added a (kind hard to see) red "button" to push, with "instructions" on the little tag. "Push the button". (Get it? They actually get to push a real button!) Whaa laaa....instant tears in their eyes! Your job is done, you've created a special gift they won't soon forget.
I think I'm going to use another one and capture my son singing his favorite Thomas song, so I can play that little voice anytime I want. OK, now I'm going to get emotional. Or, maybe Jingle Bells on a Christmas page! Or how about a birthday card with a little voice singing "Happy Birthday"? Or telling someone how much they mean to you. Or....

It's not just for tutus....

Tulle- It's not new but now it's being used in new ways and is all the rage in scrapbooking! Bazzill just released tulle in 12 new colors and in 3 inch rolls making it easy and fun to use in all of your projects! Check out all of the different ways we've been able to use it... In this page made with Little Yellow Bicycle (Zach's Life) paper, I used it flat to add a neat texture that helps the monochromatic title pop and giving it a touch of color.

I used it here as an accent for the title which doesn't draw away from the gorgeous Fancy Pants Designs (All Fall) paper.

Use it for your small gifts and for a bow on your presents when you are in a pinch! Here I used it to wrap this Magical Reindeer Food packet. This was made using Basic Grey's new Christmas line (Wassail).

Use it for your photo mats....
allowing you to still see the picture but adding a fun and elegant touch as seen here using Fancy Pants Designs (Happy Holidays) paper.

The possibilities are endless! How will you use your new tulle??
