First, a little bit about me...
I'm Tina! I'm 34 yrs old and live in beautiful New Brunswick, Canada with my hubby of 10 years and our 5 beautiful children! Life is busy but exciting around here!! Scrapping is my release from every day reality! I've been scrapping for over 7 years. I draw my inspiration from life around me!! Everything from the looks on my children's faces, to their clothes, to music we listen to and emotions in our daily life! My style is hard to pinpoint... but is kind of romantic, clean and simple. I love distressing, B&W photo's and journaling strips!! I have the honor of designing for some fabulous companies... Helmar, Magistical Memories, Simply Renee: Clip-It-Up, Best Creation and Spellbinders!
I'm a Layout gal... I can do cards and altered items if need be, but layouts are where my heart lies... I love the photo's and the journaling... this is what it's all about for me! :) That is they WHY behind doing what I do!So today I have 3 projects to share with you... one card, one layout and one off the page project! I'll show you 2 on the blog here today... then you'll have to hop on over to my blog for the third project... AND for a chance to win some yummy ribbon! :)
Enough talking... on with the show!
First up is a gift bag created using a plain ole' brown paper bag. I tied a bow using lace and satin ribbon... Sure does dress up a plain ole' bag!!
For my second project, I have created a card. I love texture on my work, so for this card I did some pleating. To hold the pleats, I used Helmar 450 quickdry. It's fabulous... and it dries invisible!!
For the third, you're going to have to drop by my blog... But here's a peek for you...
As I mentioned above, I am a designer for Simply Renee: Clip-It-Up. Today just happens to be my day for posting on their blog as well!! Feel free to check out my project on there... (Will be up later in the morning) it happens to have just the slightest piece of RRR lace on it! :) There are also some more organizing tips!
Before I go, I'll share a little tip with you. One thing that I love is binder rings... I love to group my laces or ribbons together and hang them on my clip-it-up using a binder ring! (See more details on the Simply Renee blog)
These binder rings can also hang from hooks on your wall, from a rod of any sort... I love that I can keep things organized by color, brand, kit... however I want! (I have the fabulous 36 inch ribbon organizer, but I have to wait until my new scrap space is finished being renovated! )
Hope you have been inspired by my projects today... and that my organizing tip is a help for you!! Remember... drop by my blog for a chance to win some... what is it? RIBBON!!!!
Until Next time... Happy Scrapping!
