Coin Fold Out Album

I made this a few years back and I thought it would be fun to share it with all of you. :) Looking through a scrapbooking magazine a few years back, I came across this cute idea. Making a coin holder into a fold out scrapbook album. I found mine at a scrapbooking yard sale for a super cheap deal!!! I had it displayed in my daughters room for a couple of years and now that I have made some other things it was getting a bit crowed on her night stand. I was about to put it away, and I thought it would be fun to share it with all of you. I hope this inspires you!! :)

STAY TUNED :) Magnetic Picture Frame!!!



What do you think I'm going to do with this old frame?????

To be continued...................
Do you want to make one of these for a special someone in your life or for you??? Well because I love you all I will tell you how I did it.
1st Step: Find an old frame that you have been thinking about throwing away. Or go to a thrift store.
2nd Step: Give it a face lift: Paint it your prefered color. White was the color I chose for my frame. Give the frame 3 coats of paint.
3rd Step: To give it a antique sand paper the frame after it has dryed.
4th Step: Go to LOWES and get yourself a 8*10 sheet of magnetic metal. Make sure to ask them for the stuff that's only a $1!! If you ask them to cut it down to 8*10 they will because they are so NICE!!!!
5th Step: Cover the sheet of medal with modge podge and place your pre-cut sheet of paper on it. Give it another coat after you have adhered it to the sheet of metal. Cut about a 1/4 of your other sheet of scrapbook paper and adhere it to the bottom. Cover it with modge podge again.
6th Step: Adhere down your ribbon with modge podge.
7th Step: Adhere your magnets with a hot glue gun to your jewels.
8th Step: Pick out some cute pictures to put on your frame. What's fun about this is you can change it up whenever your want. :)
I would like to give a big thanks to a very crafty lady for giving me this great idea!! Here is her blog address:
Happy Crafting!!! :)

Valentines Tree

Valentines Wreath

I don't know if I really like this?? Either way here it is and I tried it out. It was fun making it, well kind of. The yarn was super annoying!! It kept getting all knotted up. It's funny because at first when I was making it, I was getting really excited and was really liking it and then at the very end I was starting to kind of hate it. I was even considering throwing it in the trash. It's funny because it reminds me of my Mom and how she felt about her tole painting when she first began doing it. She took one look at her work and thought "All of this is trash!" She even considered throwing all of it away and decided to give it one more night, to think it over. It's a good thing she changed her mind!! Because she is so talented and has made some amazing things :) Thank you Tip junkie for giving me the idea.
