Okay today is a wonderful Wednesday! I finished a few more layouts yesterday for challenges, but I also finished a cute coffee filter book. So I will let you know how I made it and if you want it simply become a follower and make a comment on this page :) yay.

here's the finished front for you to see :)

coffee filters
embellies of your choice

here are the type of coffee filters needed

you can ink them or paint them whatever you prefer. On this one I used inks, both ink pads and walnut and ranger sprays! If you use the sprays and are in a hurry, you can pop these wet filters in the microwave to speed up the drying process!

After you have the filters dry and inked then you can bind them. On this one I used a simple stapler technique, but I have used rings, ribbon, and thread before as well... They all turn out cute!

For my paper, I like to get rid of some of the wonderful scraps I keep on hand! You don't have to but it is a great way to use up the rest of really cute paper! I choose to cut my paper or rip it in numerous ways depending on the look I want!

As for embellishments, you can use whatever your heart desires! Also, don't forget you can put tags inside the filters and use them as pockets!


Remember to follow my blog and leave a comment. I will be randomly choosing someone to send this to! TFL

I had hoped to upload a new layout of the boys today but it's been progressing slower then I'd like with everything else going on :) It is turning out cute though... I'm doing a lot of stitching which is fun but time consuming! Also, tonight I will be packing my bags to go to SLC for my marathon on friday so woohoo for that... I can't wait to see that finish line :)well that's all for today, but I am hoping to get another layout up soon
Just got my slide up woohoo... it turned out nice! Super excited about that

new LOs

Inspired by my clean room I threw time into some new los. I finally scrapped our trip to the inauguration and just love the way my page tuned out. Then I did a lo of Woo's 1st bday party... not a happy camper. And, I also finished a 9 year book for James and me! I stared that album a long time ago, but hadn't finished, so yay me!

Cleaned and reorganized my scrap room

it's so nice again. I love that 'new' feeling. I'm all scrap happy!
