What I've been up to these last few days!!

Warning this is a long post.
I have been soooooo busy with Christmas gifts the past few days and tonight I am going to share with you 4 gifts I made for my friends at work.

I made 3 mini albums and 1 accordian album. I used some Tim Holtz DP on the first 2, Tim Holtz Grunge board, newspaper to make my flowers, Tim Holtz Alterations Tattered Flowers Die by Sizzix, Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist, Distressing inks and alot of accessories.

Here is my first one that went to one of my Best Friends Gina, along with some crafting goodies.



Isn't that flower just Gorgeous?? LOVE IT!!




Here is the 2nd one that went to another one of my GOOD friends, Allyson. She also got some Basic Grey 12x12 paper packs.




I made this one for one of the girls in my office at work. I just finished this one and I am waiting for the Crackle Accents to dry(hope it's dry in the morning before I go to work).

I made these flowers with some satin ribbon that I burned on each side with a lighter and then wrapped and twisted together and hot glued to keep in place. Note( these are the first ones I have ever made and I created them on my own.



And here is my last one for this post. I still have a ton of projects started or that I need to start so hopefully I will get them done in time for Christmas.




Thanks for stopping by!!
