Fabulous Friday is here!

It is Friday and it is Fabulous! The weekend is upon us! Of course this means for me that spring break will be at it's end in just a matter of days. Man this week as sure gone by fast!

Anyway for our first segment of Fabulous Friday, I have a amazing toilet paper roll mini I would like to share with you. I did make this one a long time ago at Halloween time, but I just love this mini so much that I wanted to use it for our first segment! I hope you enjoy it!

I made my first video!

I am so excited! Last month I finally broke down and bought myself a new digital camera.  It came with the option to make videos!  My old on did as well, but it didn't record sound, but my new one does!  So now I have a way to share all those video tutorials I promised sometime ago!  Of course I will have to redo them because my camcorder is too old to be able to use those videos.

The video I made tonight is to show off  mini album I made to sell on etsy. You can view the video by clicking here!  Also feel free to browse through my favorites on my YouTube channel, I have tons of great videos that you can use for resources!

Swaps yet again!

Yes you all know by now that I love swaps!  I am currently in 16 swaps. I was in 17, but the hostess canceled that one.  It was a card pal swap. 6 of them i am hosting. 2 of those have been mailed back out and just waiting to get word on when they have arrived back to everyone. Another 2 are due on the 1st, so those will go back out the first week of April.  The last two I just opened up and still taking sign ups.  As for the other ten.  Three out those ten are monthly secret sister type swaps and 1 of those three is a card swap.  2 of them I still need to work on, but they are not due for a while, so I am in no hurry. The other 5 are complete and have been mailed out.

These are the flowers I made for one of the swaps!

Each month I host a Learning Swap over at  For Round 4 I made a Shake box, Tags and Stick pins. The battery died in my new digi before I could take a pic of the stick pins I made.  So once the batter is charged I will get it loaded up for all to see.

This is the first shaker box I have EVER made.  I did a winter theme becasue I love winter as well Christmas.  Winter, Christmas and Halloween are my favorite themes to scrap, so I always find a way to make something around those when I get the chance.  Plus I LOVE making those adorable little snowmen!

Below is the tag I made. I am actually happy on how it turned out.  Granted it wasn't what I had pictured in my head, but I like just the same!

These are the butterflies I made.  To be honest I will NEVER dip the Fanciful Flight Die cuts into UTEE again. (3) That was hard to do! They did turn out very pretty, but a lot of work!

I so badly wanted to get the Toilet Paper Roll cards I made added to this post as well, but the battery died in my new digi before I could get that far.  I do love my new digi and have been playing with since I got it at the beginning of this month.  I bought it on the 5th and the battery died today after all this time playing with it!  So I am thrilled about that.  Well not that battery is dad and needs to recharge, but with how long it lasted!  With my last digi I was lucky to get 5 minutes in before the batteries were dead and needed to be changed!

Happy Scrapping!

Glitter Tutorial!

Well seeing how I am unable to upload the video tutorials I have done, I decided to just make them as a downloads from my website. Once I get a newer camera I will attempt to do the videos. I new battery for my laptop is the top of my list.  I have thought about getting a web-cam and doing broadcast on Ustream instead, but I haven't decided yet if I want to do that.

Anyway back to original topic here.  I decided to start with glitter because that is something I know about that has been asked alot in various places on the Internet.  This technique used will end the issues with loose glitter getting all over your projects. The trick is to seal your glitter and this tutorial will show how I do that for my projects.  It is very versatile and one you will be time and time again!
