Paper wreath tutorial

Hey everyone, I've had a lot of people ask me for a tutorial on the paper wreath I made so here's a quick one for you.  This wreath is really easy to make.

To start you will need a foam wreath, I used a 14" but you could make it smaller or bigger



You will also need some pins


Then you need some 12x12 pattern paper.  I used 8 papers for my 14" wreath.  You will need to cut the papers into 1/2" x 12" strips.  After they are cut, curl them the same way you would curl a ribbon using your scissors.  I found it worked well if I held the paper in the middle and curled one end at a time.  Then all you need to do is pin each piece of paper to the wreath.  Pin them from the middle of the strip so it curls on both ends.



Just to add a little more to it, I bought some cheap red ball ornaments and just added them randomly throughout.


Finally I made a bow using my Cameo.


Thanks for stopping by!

Scrapbook Nerd reveal

Hey everyone, I first want to say that this is my last month at Scrapbook Nerd.  I say this with a heavy heart because it has been such a great team to be a part of for the last year.  If you are looking for a place to chat and be inspired\, make sure to check out the SN forum.  There is an amazing bunch of ladies there!!

On to my projects, this month I worked with the Fancy Pants Oh Deer collection.  I love this collection!!  I managed to get 6 projects done with it.

First up is a couple of LO's!



Next I made a simple card using the die cuts and a stencil


A mini album using photo ID tags (here are a few pages)





A paper tree

Thankful and blessed

Hey everyone, I"m back today with a new LO  for Epiphany Crafts to share.  It's thanksgiving week at Epiphany and I have so very much to be thankful for.  I have no idea how I got lucky enough to find the love of my life when I was just 15 years old.  And now, many years later, we have a beautiful healthy family and a wonderful life together.  What else could a girl ask for??

On my LO I used the Chevron tool, and the small and large heart tools.



Here are some close ups!

I used the Christmas speech bubbles and the Star Confetti (my all time favorite) from UmWow Studios, Elle's Studio Good Cheer collection, Pink Paislee embellishment stickers, A Flair for Buttons Flair, twine and enamel dots.

Fun with ovals!

Hey everyone, today I have some new LO's for Epiphany Crafts using the tool of the month...oval! On my first LO, I used the oval simply as it is, it's a great shape for words!









    On my next LO I used the oval tool to create a heart....that's right, when you layer the ovals it creates a heart shape!  Instead of using paper for this one I used a transparent overlay with some gold lines in it.  I love the effect it created!




    Thanks for stopping by!
