Baby’s First Easter Faithbook Page

Happy Easter! I am looking forward to spending time with my family and friends at church tomorrow morning, so I thought I’d share this with you a day early :). It’s a hybrid scrapbook page I made celebrating Gabe’s very first Easter (2007). I can’t believe how much he’s grown in the past two years!!

Altered Flower Pail Tutorial

Here’s a fun project I made almost a year ago! The full tutorial with step-by-step photos is on the Prima blog today. Actually, I made two of these last spring -  for my nieces, Emma and Madison. I don’t know which they were more excited about, the pretty pails or the candy inside ;).

Altered Prima Flower Pail

If you are into “going green” with your scrapbooking projects, this is one way you can reduce/reuse/recycle! The little pail I altered is actually a recycled flower container. Here’s a shot of the flower pail before I started the project.

Christmas Gift Basket Idea

****FAMILY MEMBERS: Don’t look at this one please :)!****

Here’s an idea I have been wanting to try ever since I saw it on Kayla’s blog last year around this time: homemade caramel dip! I was amazed that you can make this great treat right in the can without ever even opening it :). You just remove the labels from some cans of sweetened condensed milk, put them into a deep pot, and completely cover them with water, then boil them for three hours (adding water when needed). The milk turns into a caramel-y type sauce – who knew?? But I learned after the fact that it can be dangerous because the cans will exploded if the water level drops below the tops of the cans! Good thing I remembered to keep adding water :)!!! Despite the risk, I will be making more of these – I tested some, and it is YUMMY!

Christmas Gift Basket Idea

Here’s a gift basket idea: Decorate cans of homemade caramel dip (I used printed papers from Chrstmas Heart), add some apples, candies and bags of nuts and you have a sweet gift to  be enjoyed by all … I hope ;)!

Hybrid Ideas From Christmas Past

Meeeeeeerry Christmas!!!!!!!!!!!! I was browsing through last year’s posts about my hybrid Christmas projects, and I thought I’d share some of the pics again in case some of you are newer readers. There are some fun ideas here I plan to borrow from for this year’s gifts :)! If you click the images, you will be taken to the original post, which has more information about each project. All of these projects were made with either Shabby Princess, Shabby Miss Jenn or Weeds and Wildflowers digital designs. If you like these, you will LOVE their new designs for this year even more!!! But I’m pretty sure all of the designs from last year are still available in their stores as well :).

Shabby Princess 2 Page Calendar

Have you made any hybrid Christmas gifts this year? Do you plan to? I’d love to hear what you’re making, so please share – I still have more people on my list to make things for ;). And if you have pics online, please link us up :)!!!

Another Christmas Craft Tutorial :)!

Hybrid Gift Card HolderOK, show of hands: who out there has a “difficult to shop for” friend or family member? As much as we love to give handmade or personalized gifts, there are times when the best gift is really a gift card (especially if you also sometimes forget to pick up a gift until the last minute like I do – LOL)! That’s why I looooved the idea of these crafty little gift card holders!  They dress up the gift card and add a touch of handmade to a usually boring looking gift. PLUS, you can add a little handle to hang them on the Christmas tree with – TOO CUTE!! I made this one using the Krafty Christmas Gift Couture Printables by Melinda Staley, she has lots of great printables in her store, including some cards and gift tags. This project is in The Daily Scrapper Christmas Edition as well - click HERE to see the tutorial and full credit information!
