Want to know how I made those painted lines?? I'll show ya!!

1.) First, gather your supplies needed:  Large scrap piece of paper, small scrap piece of paper cut to the length you want your journaling lines, paint.

2.) Next, squeeze out a line of paint on your scrap paper.

3.) Then,  dip your small scrap piece of paper in the paint to get paint on the edge. You may have to test out your journaling line so that it doesn't goop all over :)

4.) Now you're ready to create your journaling lines!! You can do as many as you like :)

5.) And voila! Your own journaling lines!!

Happy National Scrapbook Day bloggers!! You should have come from the Ruby Rock-It blog... if not, why not start there and hop along with us :)

Here is the order of the hop:
START-----> Ruby Rock-It blog
Me!! You are already here :)
END------>Ruby Rock-It blog

I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE this day. Not only because it commemorates what I think is the best hobby out there, it is a day that girlfriends can get together and have a day of crafting. Whatever you are doing this weekend, please have fun!! :) That's all I ask!!

I will be celebrating NSD next weekend at a fabulous scrapbook convention with lots of shopping and crafting!!

I wanted to showcase Ruby Rock-It's fabulous vellum collection in a new way :)

Yep, you got it~these are just your run-of-the-mill glass candle holders that you can get ANYWHERE!! Even your local dollar store!! I wrapped them in the fabulous vellum, added some of the awesome large bling pieces, and VOILA! You've got an easy handmade candle holder. Don't you love simple and easy??

One thing that I do want to point out about Ruby Rock-It Bella! Fundamental's Bling is this: IT IS SO EASY TO PUT ON YOUR PROJECTS!! I usually loathe bling images because I can never get them on the page as they come in the package.... you will not have this problem with these babies! The adhesive on the bling is so thick it barely moves when you take it off the plastic. Just fabby.

I hope you are having fun on the Ruby Rock-It hop this weekend :) The rules of the hop: please visit each Ruby Rock-It DT member, leave a comment on each post, leave a comment on the Ruby Rock-It blog, and you will be eligible to win! Visit Sandy next for some more Ruby Rock-It blog hop fun!!

Come visit me again tomorrow for a blog hop with The Paper Bakery.

Best Mom Ever

I'm up on the Ruby Rock-It blog today with a quick Mother's Day gift :)

I used the newest Ruby Rock-It Bella! Fundamentals collection Vintedge, some bling, and some alpha letters for this quick and easy Mother's Day gift. I used a very inexpensive white frame from Ikea (I think it was only $1.99!!).

Come back soon :)
