As always, this page has many symbols for me. Art means different things to everyone so I will leave you to make your own judgements on what those symbols might be :) Thanks for stopping by!

Today I have 2 different tags to share with you. I like making these for my friends and family because once they open the gift, they can still use the tag as a bookmark or just keep it to look at. I wrapped my gifts in brown paper bags (yay recyling!) and that way all the tags coordinate!For this tag I used a TH stamp (at the movies set) in the background and then inked and glimmer misted over it. I stamped and embodded the wings, then cut them out and inked them.
I stamped the snowflake, them embossed it with gold. The "do not open until christmas" stamp is from Stampin' Up.

I have 3 cards in this post to share with you. They were all very quick! I used some imaginisce paper and some DCWV paper. I loved the look of the TH film strip layered on the TH paper tape. Super pretty!
Thanks for stopping by! I will have more cards and some christmas tags to share in the near future!

I like to stamp the date somewhere on some of my pages just so I can remember when they were created. (yes, sorry, I made this on Nov. 14th and it is just getting posted now... my bad)

I liked how this tag turned out so much that I just had to do an art journal page inspired by it! I will be sharing that very soon.

This is a quick bicture of the anniversary album I made for my parents last month. I still need to take some good pictures of it but I will have that up for you to see soon I hope. It is a very interactive album with tags everywhere :)
Thanks for stopping by!

I wanted to share this project with you today! I made it from a little divider thing (these are used to organize recipes or something I think) I altered it by first adding the dictionary paper and then distressing it. I used some white acrylic paint, ink and TH distress tool. I used a little paper tape piece (the blue and red) from the vintage findings mm collection. I added some cute dollar store lace and little letter stickers. I made the flower using a spiral technique (actually quite easy and pretty!) and hand cut the leaves. I added an eyelet to the flower which seves as a spot to clip the little arrow charm to! I love how this looks!
I glimmer misted and distressed the back of the plain divider. I added a simple paris stamp (used some perfect pearls on it) and the tag/bookmark/fun thing is complete!

It is super easy to add the charm to a safety pin using a jump ring, then just attach it to your ribbon.

So about the project: I have another art journal page to share with you tonight! I did some stamping and collaging in the background of this page. I used alot of numbers on it to symbolize growing up and growing older. This is something I have been thinking alot about lately because I am going into my last year of school and I need to decide what to do with my life. It is a scary thing and this art definately helps a little...
I love this quote and I feel like it really relats to my thoughts right now. It is so true, children are always creating beautiful things and as we grow older we become self concious about our art. Maybe we dont share it as much or dont take the same pride in it and lots of people are just not motivated to create anymore. I am so glad I found scrapbooking when I did :)

To finish it off I just added the pretty bling. It was very simple, yet elegant and fun!
