Celebrating Fatherhood

With Father's Day fast approaching, I decided to dig into the Man About Town paper and matching brads for this photo of my daughter, Larissa getting a tractor ride with her Daddy. These brads make the perfect masculine embellishment! Upsy Daisy has a wonderful selection of fun brads that are a great addition to any page...check them out!!

Fun Mini!

To make this mini album you'll first need to cut the back pocket off of an old pair of jeans.

Measure the size of your pocket and cut some papers to fit inside.

Fold paper in half and stitch in place...

making sure that your stitching goes through the pocket as well!

This makes a perfect summer album :)

Mix-it-Up Monday!!!!

Hi everyone...
I wanted to show you a cool way to mix up our gorgeous papers and embellies.

Look at my cute Band-Aid tin:

I took an old tin, sanded it down (so the acrylic paint would go on better), waited for it to dry, and had a LOT of fun with my Upsy Daisy goodies :)

I trimmed, modge-podged and sanded and filed my way around this tin, reaching for my favourite UD papers all the time.

Can you guess how many lines I used?

I used "Unwritten - Poetry", "Spirit - Love", "Hot Chocolate - Wintergreen" and "Hot Chocolate - Cinnamon Stick".

I embellished the tin with some leftover trim and UD Rub-ons "Basic Black Alphas" and "Sweet Slumber Boy".

Of course I had to use up a lurverly new brad from our "Man about Town" line. I used it to mimic an "O" in the word "ouch"...

I finally sanded down the handle and the bottom edges of the tin so as to give it a battered-up, worn-out look...kinda how one feels after taking a nasty spill and needing a Band-Aid ;)

***warning*** If you do decide to mix-it-up and create a tin like this, your little people will be searching for Band-Aids about 5 times a

Happy week everyone :):)
