Popcorn Anyone?



Hello everyone! Can you believe the end of summer is nearing to a close? Children are back in school and moms have time to sit down and do some crafting now....or at least this mom does. Lol.

Just wanted to share a paper piecing set that I made using a Scrapping Bug pattern. We enjoy movie nights at our house...so this set is all about movies. The bear is just so darn cute holding its bag of popcorn, waiting for the movie to start.

I used plain white cardstock and then colored it the colors that I wanted with copic markers. I really enjoy using copic markers.

If you would like to bid on this set, just click HERE and you'll be taken there. Thanks for dropping by and stop back in anytime. I love visitors and comments!!

Blessings.

Sharing a school mini tp album!

Hello!
It's good to see you again. I wanted to post what I've been working on today. My sister in law Diana had a birthday yesterday, Aug 12. We usually do not exchange gifts with each other, but I wanted to give her something she could put on her desk at work. She has a niece and a nephew both starting kindergarten this year. The nephew just happens to be my boy, lol.
Anyways, I made this cute little mini album out of tp rolls. Yep, I recyled them. Ironed them out and painted them a pretty sparkly purple color and then decorated them. Sewed one side so the tags wouldn't fall out, put a binding ring in and added some pretty colorful ribbons. She is going to love this keepsake!!

Here are the pics of the little album:









Big shout to ScrappyDew Creations for the awesome Back to School bears!

GRUNGE

Grunge!



grunge   /grʌndʒ/ Show Spelled[gruhnj]


noun Slang .

1. dirt; filth; rubbish.

2. something of inferior quality; trash: He didn't know good music from grunge.

I've never tried "GRUNGE" in the scrapbooking world or I didn't think that I had. So...after doing a little research and investigating what it was...maybe I have.
The definition of grunge is above.
To the best of my knowledge and understanding, Grunge is a worn, frayed edges, stained warm and wonderful look. Colors normally used are tans, browns, greens, and warm blues and even black.
Tea can be used to stain  tags, lace or other embellishments to give it that old, worn look.
Now that I know what Grunge it...it makes me think of Vintage. Things that are worn, stained with time.

Hope I've helped others understand what grunge is.

Thanks for stopping by. I've enjoyed your visit.
Blessings.
