I'm so thankful to have all the wonderful friends I have on scrapinvintage. I'm so thankful of how many members have signed up and all the amazing photos and videos they have shared. Scrapinvintage would be nothing with out my members. I'm so thankful that I get to be a part of swapping out there goodies and getting to hold them in person.
Each day I sign in I get a huge smile on my face by all the wonderful comments everyone leaves for each other. All the funny videos that make me laugh until I cry. It has only been a few months since scrapinvintage was created but I feel amazing at where it is already. With scrapinvintage its not about how many members I can get its about all the wonderful friends I have from across the world.
Thank you to all my SV Friends

after checking out my blog your next blog will be Jane Klindworth 

I want to share some of the things I have created for my friends in the last month or so.
This is a Cigar box I created for Nicole I got the image from online. The Paper is from graphic 45 communique the butterflies are from prima and so is the bling. The flower is Maya road, stick pins are from Websters pages. I added a trim and flat back pearls around the sides and a Tim Holtz knob for opening the box.

I made this tp mini album for Sheryl I used graphic 45 once upon a spring time and used this really cool binding technique that Marla shared with me i have the link to the tutorial on the site.

 This is a sneak peak on an album im working on for someone Im almost finished and will be sharing all the details soon.

Unboxing Cricut Explore Air 2 Lilac from HSN

Welcome back

Its been far to long. Im very excited to be back in the crafty world not to the extent I was before but Im here to share my projects. The first thing I wanted to share was my Cricut Explore Air 2 In the color Lilac. Its absolutely stunning The photos does it no justice. I purchased mine from HSN for around $239 after a coupon. hobby lobby, Michaels and Cricut all have it for 249 but I chose HSN to take advantage of there monthly payments 

Im loving the Cricut design space it has changed in the last few years. I was very please to see that all my cartridges I uploaded years ago was still there waiting for me. Its so exciting that we can now use our own files to create something special. The pinterest feel can suck me in for hours with all the cute Ideas. 
Although the Cricut has made some major changes and I haven't used one in about 2 years or so I jumped right back in like I never left. The New machine is super easy to use and the design space is easy and fun to use as…

then I took the 2 votive holders and glued both top sides together then glued it to the candle stick holder I used hot glue but E6000 would be better.

I then glued that to the candle stick and painted it. once dry I glued the fish bowl on top I added the led…

One of my newest hobbies is wood burning its so much fun and very relaxing.  I got mine from Michael's for $12 and the stamps were also $12 me and my sister both used a 60% off coupon. I have ordered the lower case letters from eBay for around $11 those will be here next week the name of the brand is walnut hollow creative versa. 

This set is so easy to use the Picture below was my first attempt I thought I was totally going to use this piece of wood to doodle all over but it Was so easy and came out so pretty I was able to just make it my first creation. I highly recommend you try this one its a multi use tool comes with several tips and caring case.

I used my Cricut to cut out the letter T I then traced around it with a pencil and started to fill it in with the heat tool. there was a few spots in the wood where the lines were that I had to go over more than once but no big deal. as for the Hot stamps I would turn it off take a towel folded several times to remove a stamp and ad…
