Envelopes should be pretty too...

I love to put goodies in pretty envelopes and I simply love love love the glassine envelopes that are out on the market right now.  They can hold a lot more then the regular paper envelope and I love the way they look all altered up.

Today I have a 3x3 glassine envelope that I altered up with some left overs I had on my desk from a few projects I created over the weekend.

Products Used:
Glassine Envelope
Prima Flowers (left and middle)
Purple Cows Punch It Autumn Punch for decorative Corner
Cosmo Cricket Evangeline Pattern paper (decorative corner)
Websters big leaves
green wire
random white rose (right) colored with "Spun Sugar" Distress Marker
K12 Studio "Thanks" Mothers day stamp set
Distress Ink

Here is a close up

I used the Purple Cows CraftGeek Wind It to wind my wire into the "heart" or leaf shape. 

Thanks so much for looking and I will be back soon with another project.  Till then... Happy Crafting.

Thank you's and a little love...

The house hunting in Texas is still in full swing.  A little harder to do from Washington, but we are making some progress.  Not looking forward to packing things up since I finally got my scrap room the way I wanted it...  Although being able to paint my new room any color I want is a plus.. We just need to find the house first...lol With that said lets get on to today's projects.

First I would like to share with you a card I created with the amazing tools from Purple Cows.

 I created this card using the Purple Cows CraftGeek Punch It Autumn Punch and the Pin It with the Solstice Pins.  For a full supply list and how to visit the Purple Cows blog.

Next are a couple tags I created for my daughter.  She is giving thank you's to all her teachers this year as she is graduating from high school and wanted a special thank you for all of them..  I posted the ones for her female teachers last week.  These are for her male teachers.

Shabby Chic Gift Tags...

I have made a series of Shabby Gift Tags and I wanted to share some photos of them with you all today...



Since we will be moving in a few short months I am no longer teaching classes, but at the request of some of the ladies I am now going to be putting up YouTube videos of my projects so they can see what I'm up to and how I assemble some of my projects.. So with that said here are a few videos that I did over the weekend.
