Scrap Party for Greenbrook Elementary

We had our scrap party for the Greenbrook Elementary auction fundraiser this Saturday. It was a fun and the eleven 2nd grade girls that came had a blast making their scrapbooks.

Here is the scrapbook I made as an example:

It was made out of handled paper bags and looked like a purse when it's closed. So cute! 

Here's a photo of the girls holding their scrapbooks at the party. They were so proud!

Here are some of the shots I took of the girls' scrapbooks as they worked on them:

It was a great party! I had a blast and I think they did too! 
Thanks for looking!

Name Signs Galore! And Much Much More!

I've been super busy making name signs for customers on ETSY! I would love to share a few of them for you here:

I have also been making some fun projects on the side. Check them out!

These were zipper pulls for the kids' backpacks that I made to use for the party favors for my son's birthday party. He loves the Skylanders video game and there aren't many things available with that theme. So I made them myself, of course!

Then, there were my daughter's (Stephanie's) birthday party bags:
She had a Hello Kitty theme. These were the prototypes. Here are the ones I actually used:
Then there were the owl themed party bags and thank you notes for 24 of my 2 year old niece's (Lyla's)
closest friends;)

My sister-in-law, Becca, helped me assemble the bags. Thanks Becca!

Let's not forget the cub scouts now shall we?
This is my son, Bradley, and husband, Matt, posing behind the banner I made.  It says, "Tiger Pride" and features a really cute tiger die cut in the middle!
Now let's see, what else did I make recently?

Oh yeah, I designed a scrapbook made out of handled paper bags! This little album features the lovely Carly and her BFF's! I designed it for the art auction at my son's school. I'll be teaching some kids how to make this at my auction class coming up in April!

I also made some cards for some of my Etsy customers to thank them for their business!

Hope you enjoyed looking and are inspired to make some paper crafts yourself!
