GCS Flip Flop Album

Okay, Here is another project that I completed this week. Told ya "I'm Back!!!" lol The theme for this years Gulf Coast Scrappers in New Orleans was "Flip Flopping Around GCS". My good friend Lisa Baracco made a flip flop book using 3 flip flop shapes & a ring to make her book. Well, I decided that I would use my Zutter machine and make an album using the same concept. I free hand a flip flop a little larger then hers for the pattern and cut out of chipboard flip flop shapes with the heels being a little straighter so that I could bind the heels with the Zutter. It was a really fun book to make and of course making it and looking at my pictures brought me back to that happy occassion... GCS was a lot of fun this year (as always) and it was a lot of fun to catch up with friends from the Westbank, Eastbank, & North Shore. Hope you enjoy my little project as much as I enjoyed making it... ~ME

I'm back.....

It's been a long while since I've been blogging but as most of you know I've been pre-occupied with other things lately. I think things are finally settled down and now I am ready to get back to my third
My Mom & Dad collected the state quarters for my 3 sons and my great nephew. She gave the coins to me to figure out a way to display them. We could have purchased the folder or display board from the website but being the scrapper that I am, well--I scrapped them!!!! I used 12x12 printed patriotic paper and made the display card for the quarters using my Excel program. I inked the edge (I love that look) and purchased at Michael's the 12x12 frame and this is what I came up with. Hope you enjoy. We are still needing Alaska & Hawaii.
