About Me

My photo

Well, I can't really tell you allllll about me! LOL. But I can tell you that I'm a wife, mother, grandmother, aunt, cousin, and Christian. And I love scrapbooking, card making, painting, and altered art.  I love to coordinate parties with themes and come up with new ways to incorporate paper art into them.   I enjoy working with my hands and making something out of nothing.  It's such a wonderful thing to know that there are so many beautiful women out there who share the same passion for this hobby....ART! that I do. I draw inspiration from everything around me and from people like you! So, let's get scrappin'!

Scrappin Happyxo 5000 Subbie Fabric Page Challenge

Hi all:

If you know me, you know that I love YouTube University.  You can learn just about anything there!  But what I love the most is that it is a community.  And for me, I like being a part of a group of women and men that love to craft as much as I do.  And so in my free time (I know, what's that???) I watch a lot of videos. Sometimes it's to learn how to use a product, sometimes to learn a new technique, and sometimes just to be entertained.  And of course, there's lots of inspiration there!

One of the ladies, Jeanette, that I've been watching for years, has reached a milestone.  5000 Subscribers! What an amazing accomplishment. And she is having a challenge to celebrate.  Her subbies are being challenged to create a 6x4 fabric page, sticking as close to possible with the color format that she's chosen, to be included into a book that she will put together as part of a prize for two winners.  There will be three prizes in all. 1. for a subbie's comment, 2. if you create an entry and blog/facebook/pinterest/video/photograph it, and 3. if you snail-mail your entry to her.  Oh, how that is going to be one beautiful book! Lacey, fabric goodness...

Here is the page that I've created to be entered into this challenge

Recipe for this page: fabric, lace scraps from my stash, RAKd/Prize flower, flower center, and flower trim from (Fiona) Jennings644, RAKd leaf pin and pearl trim from Sharon S.

In reality, because each of the pages that will be snail-mailed to her will be added into the book, it makes sense not to add a lot of dimensional embellishments to the page.  And even though I won't be mailing my entry, I settled for making a dress form layered with lace for some dimension.  Just because I'm one of those people that likes to stick to the rules. LOL.  Some parts of the page are sewn together, while some parts were put into place using my hot glue gun.  I like that I was able to use scraps of fabric and lace left over from making flowers to create this page.  And I really like how it turned out!

You can view her channel - and see the rules for entry - at http://www.youtube.com/user/ScrappinHappyxo?feature=watch and also view one of her fabric journals a thttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YSRGD7vWuUM .   

Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek.
Until next time, as always,
