Home is where the heart is......

I think I might have just gotten my mojo back. I still lack sleep but I've managed to create here and there and I'm so happy about that!

I was able to make 1 page, 1 page in progress and 2 altered items. Plus I just ordered 76 pictures through Costco. If you get the costco coupon booklet in the mail, did you know that they have a coupon there for 9 cents on a regular 4x6 print? Yeah, I about fell over my chair when I saw it. That's why I was pretty much glued to my computer and photoshop all of last week trying to crop and prep pictures for printing. I think I'm set for the next three months. Woohoo. Can't wait to get crackin on those pics.

So onto the share today......

This was inspired by both my GCD studios items and the Be Inspired challenge #28 over at Cuttlebug blog.

House projects is very inspiring for me lately. After I was done with this easy frame, I already had another project in mind. Hopefully I can get to it soon.

"Home is where the heart is." frame


-PULLED OUT FOR PUBLICATION-


Almost everything in this project is from GCD Studios with the exception of the letter stamp, brad and rhinestones. Sorry they don't carry those (hopefully not yet, anyways).

-PULLED OUT FOR PUBLICATION-

I just love, love, love the glitter letters. Kinda sad that it doesn't photograph well. Made the epoxy heart pop out a little better with foam dots.

-PULLED OUT FOR PUBLICATION-

I love the beauty of GCD papers. They're double sided so there's much more options. Too much that it was actually hard to narrow it down with this project! Hehehehehehe. I also added some little details to some of the houses like the rubon bee above. I transfered it onto white cardstock, cut out the image and adhered with foam dot.

-PULLED OUT FOR PUBLICATION-

this chipboard star stood great alone so I didn't mess up with it.

-PULLED OUT FOR PUBLICATION-

I was trying to make a flower with this ribbon but now it looks more like a butterfly. Oh well it still works ok.

So that's my share for today, hope you liked it! Oh and the GCD blog is giving away a great "green" giveaway this weekend. Come on over the blog to check out the details.

Till next time,
Grace
