Hello There!! AND a store liquidation

So, I'm way behind on posting, but today I thought I'd share a store liquidation sale today. was one of the first places I ordered from online when I started to branch out in my scrapping.  I discovered brands like Bo Bunny, Prima, Ranger, Fancy Pants, Moxxie and all the other brands it's hard to locate in the larger crafts stores.  It was amazing shopping there. 

Unfortunately, the online store is now being liquidated.  So, thought I'd share the site with you and you can hop over and get 40% off!!  Visit Scrap Attack Scrapbooking.  The code to be used is on the first page when you get there.  There's still some great stuff in the online store. 

I am almost done with 2 mini's I've been working on.  I can't wait to post those up! 

Until then...I hope you have a great THANKSGIVING!(if you celebrate it)

Friendship Page Swap

My friend Monica(Scrappin4MyBoys on the{scrap}beach) told me about a great idea her and a couple of the other girls there had.  They wanted to do 6X6 mini pages with all of our info on it to swap.  You'd add your email, youtube, blog, address, etsy, ebay etc. to the back of your page so it's at easy reach for your friends when they need to contact you.  I thought it was a wonderful I asked some of my friends to swap with me as well.

Here's what I made for them.

This one is for Martica at  This is the front of the page.  I used Inkadinkadoo stamps, pewter embossing powder by Hampton Art, prima lace, recollections pearl flourish, kraft cardstock, textured paper from Hobby Lobby, Tim Holtz Rosette die cut out(from happydales on the{scrap}beach), feathers, handmade stick pin, green and Burgundy pigment inks, Martha Stewart Butterfly punch 

This is the back with the tag inserted with my information on it. 

This is the back with the tag pulled out.  Stamped and embossed the same bird on the back as the front.  Used craft card stock again and textured paper from Hobby Lobby.  The lace along the edge is self adhesive paper lace I had in my stash for a long time.
Here's the tag.  Birds again and the text reads: Birds of a feather flock together.  I used some pearls, more of the Prima lace and green pigment ink and topped with a Prima flower.

Here's the second one. It's for Alvie(laceykat on  I used some flowers from the floral department at Hobby Lobby.  I sprayed them with Mud spritz by Shimmerz.  I used craft card stock for the journaling, some gold branches from one of the Making Memories vintage findings kits, a locket, music note punched from chipboard then covered with music note paper, Websters pages paper, die cut from one of the new K&Company packs and butterflies by the Paper Studio(hobby lobby).

Here's the back.  I used more of the Websters Pages paper and the paper studio butterflies, flowers from the floral department, acetate and large butterfly by K&Company.  I added the butterfly on top of the acetate and put stickles in some of the cut out areas.  This created a pocked for the tag.  The tag is from the $1bin tag pads at JoAnn.   

Here's the page with the tag removed.

Here's the one I made for Monica.

I used purple card stock and embossed it with the Allegro folder.  Then, I added White card stock that I embossed with the music notes stamp.  I added a Prima vine on top of that and a large music note I got from the Christmas ornament section at Hobby Lobby.  I also used the Martha Stewart butterfly punch on black paper with silver ink.  I rubbed a little stickles on top of those as well. 

This is the back of the page. I made the pocked to put my info inside of it.  Used more of the same on the back, but added a chipboard music note, purple butterflies, recollections pearl flourish and a black flower I folded. 

I used a tiny note card envie and tag to put inside with my information on.  I added an eyelet, ribbon and music note charm.  I hand wrote my name with a whit American Crafts marker. 

So...those are my friendship pages I have completed so far.  Thanks for taking a look.  Have a wonderful day/night!
