Scrapbook Page Idea {Softball}

A few days ago, I was organizing my photos and I came across one of a scrapbook page that I made for my co-worker's daughter.  Her daughter has been involved in athletics ever since she was a wee one and is mighty proud to show off her got game skills.    :) One day I snagged two pictures of her daughter's softball tournament and decided to surprise her with a scrapbook page.  Honestly, I was nervous as heck that she was going to be mad especially since I took the pictures without her permission. 

Well, all's well and ends well because she loved what I did with her photos and so did her daughter.  Whew!
Here is what I made:

And here are some of the materials I used to make the page:

As you can see I made this back in 2006 so I don't have all of the materials I used to make this page therefore I will explain it as best as possible.
  1. I used a fun shaped paper punch from Stampin' Up! for the name.  I did the paper punch first then stamped the letters.
  2. I used a baseball glove stamp from one of my Stampin' Up! stamp sets; I also used Sticky Doos (adhesive foam dots) to make the gloves 3-D.  You can't tell on the picture but it is a fun way to spruce up any scrapbook page.
  3. I used star shaped eyelets from Making Memories (also on #4).
  4. The stamp set I used here was from Hobby Lobby (Stampabilities). I did write the word 'THE' because I did not have any stamps small enough for that space.
  5. A plain, type set stamp was used here and also for #1 (also Stampabilities)
The page was made on a 12"x12" sheet and I didn't measure for any of the trimming.  I first put the pictures (w/photo adhesive) along the corner of the white card stock. I then trimmed it all around with my paper cutter, placed it on the blue card stock and trimmed again.

I also did not pre-cut or measure for any of the wording.  Again, starting at the corner of the white card stock I stamped the words and then used my paper cutter to cut and trim to the size of my liking. 

There ye have it.  A fun and super duper easy scrapbook page to add in a scrapbook or display in a frame.  Fun and simple, right?

Glass Vase Snowman Decor {Craft DIY}

Hello peeps!  Who is still stuffed from all of the Thanksgiving deliciousness?  Or broke from those fab after-Thanksgiving sales?  I don't do the whole crazy shopping thing but I am stuffed and happy.  I got to watch lots of t.v. and in my jammies.  Woot!  

On to my latest project, except I made this last year so I'm kinda lying.  I never got to share this with you guys because of lots of computer problems.  Anywho, I made a snowman using two floral vases.

I was inspired to make this snowman after I saw another blogger make with decor with round floral vases.  She used different glitter for each vase and then topped each one with a witch hat.  It was classy and cute.  And darn.  I wish I could remember that blogger and her site. 
Well here is how I got down to business when making this snowman.

2 - round floral vases 1 - sponge brush Mod Podge 1 - small jar of white glitter 2 - sheets black felt w/glitter scissors craft or felt glue 2 - lids from food canisters (like oatmeal) …

Organized Linen Closet... Finally!

Hi peeps.  Are y’all done decorating for fall yet?  No? Oh wait that's just me.  My decor is going up little by little as the hubs grudgingly brings more Fall/Halloween totes down from the attic.  heehee.
I do however want to show off (‘cause that’s what happens in blog land) my now neat and tidy linencloset thanks to this pin on my Organization board from Better Homes & Gardens that helped me get'er done.  Ta-da!

It is a small closet in my short and narrow hallway so taking full length photos of the before and after was a challenge.  But believe me you this thing was way too crowded and stuffing clean towels into each shelf was just plain dumb.  There was too much going on in there especially with the ball caps and candles taking up valuable space on one shelf.  So just like my utensil drawerlarge utensil drawer, and junk drawer I got to work.  As I told you in my last post, I got the caps out of there and hung up in the coat closet. 
I then emptied out the entire closet a…

Organizing da Hair Accessories

Before my daughter was born it was just the hubby, our boy and me.  I only had me to worry about when it came to all things hair.  Then baby girl came along and little by little the hair accessories, combs, brushes and everything else started to pile up and take over my middle bathroom drawer.  Up until a couple of weeks ago my hair accessory drawer looked like this:

It was so bad and I couldn't stand it any longer.  Actually it had been quite some time that I could not stand but I finally got around to organizing it.  While still on holiday vacation in early January, the kids and I took a field trip to The Container Store.  One of my new favorite stores.  Love!

After browsing, browsing, browsing and more browsing I finally got down to business.  Mainly because the kids were getting restless otherwise I could have spent the whole day there and compiled a huge wish list.  I came home with some Linus drawer organizers and after a major make-over our hair accessories bathroom drawer lo…
