All out of Mod Podge....

This week has been rainy and cold.... I've had sick kids and I've been cooped up in my house most of the week:(  So, I thought I'd skip showering and work on some crafts.  Unfortunately I ran out of Mod Podge but I couldn't drag my sick kids to the store in the rain.  So, I thought I'd post a really cute GIRLY scrapbook layout I got to make of my niece.  My sister-in-law was sad that she didn't win my scrap a page contest so I told her I would scrapbook a page for her anyway.  It was a win win situation because I don't have any girls and it was soooo fun to scrapbook a girl page.  (I have tons of girly scraps if anyone wants to use them).
I used this layout from Elizabeth Kartchner as my inspiration.  I loved the way it turned out and it was soooo much fun... thanks for letting me scrap these Shellie!

Stay tuned for all of my Mod Podge projects when I get to the store!!!

Quick Felt Checkbook Cover

I was getting tired of the checkbook cover that came with my wallet. Not only was it a boring taupe, but that taupe also acted as a type of camouflage, constantly preventing my husband from being able to find it. He won't have trouble finding it now! I used that old taupe cover as a template to cut out my felt. I kept the width the same, but increased the length a bit to allow for folding it in half, etc. The embellishment is just embroidery and a bit of applique. It took me just over twenty minutes of actual work to make this happen.
