The storms of Winter 2010 really put a toll on us! We got about 4 feet of snow in two back to back storms. Check out the guys on the factory's roof that is right across the road from our house. Snowplowers, wheelbarrows, shovels and man power on top of the roof.
This is my first paper bag album. It isn't quite finished and no pictures have been added to it. I have to get them printed off. I also haven't even finished most pages. My sister wanted to see it so I'm posting it before its really finished. I think it turned out very well considering it is my first. Oh yes, I made some mistakes but everything is a learning process. My next won't take me so long either. LOL Hope you like it!
I tried to make a faux leather wallet today. I was anxious to make one. I didn't have the extra materials to make it but substituted. I think it turned out fairly well. I use the inspiration from: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/resources/tutorials/fauxleatherwallet

At http://piecesofpaper.lefora.com/ we have an online crop once a month. This month we learned how to make scratch and sniff stickers using dry favored fruit drink mixed into clear embossing powder. Here are three flowers that I made. I plan to use them on a card when i have time. Here are the directions of how i made it.
Directions are from Katie from our online group. Thanks Katie.
1. mix 1 tsp. of clear embossing powder with 1 tsp. of sugar-free drink mix or sugar-free hot chocolate or nutmeg or cinnamon
2. use your solid stamp on your versamark pad or pigment ink pad and stamp on your paper
3. pour embossing mixture onto your stamp and shake off the extra
4. heat with your heat gun
5. you know have a scratch and sniff stamped
The snow started falling on Friday, Feb. 5 at 9 a.m. and never stopped until 2 p.m. on Sat. Feb. 6. We got 3 FEET of snow. Never in my life have I've seen that much snow in such a short time. We were literally snowed in. The roads weren't plowed and you couldn't even move. After shoveling all day, and I mean all day, I was exhausted and didn't feel very creative.
