{Pile Cleaner Bow}

I added them to this bow and I think it gave this bow the spunk it needed! I know you are going to ask me how I made it....I am not completely sure I just started wrapping ribbon, tool, pile cleaners and wire and this is what came if it! However I will try to create it again and post instructions if you are interested!!

I love these because they are so easy and you can do them for any HOLIDAY

The bottom one is 8 inches long, middle is 6 inches, top is 4 inches.
I actually just took a 2x4 cut it to size and then cut it in half. Be careful not to get your fingers. You can also buy wood this size if you don't want to cut it in half!
Make sure you paint the front first and then stain otherwise your paint goes funny!

Hair Bow

This bow is so easy and cute.

What you need

4 different kinds of ribbon
Alligator Clip
Hot Glue

The white bottom ribbon is 6 inches long. For the rest of the ribbon I cut them slightly smaller and trimmed once the bow was done

group all your ribbons and tool together, hold in the center and wrap your wire around several times. Make sure the wire is really tight! Hot glue your button to the top of your wire and hot glue your alligator clip to the bottom and you have a cute and EASY bow!

Fun ways to display photos!

I don't know about you but I ALWAYS have more cute photos to display than I have room. I made this cute display for one of my end tables

I used a 6x6 tile and mod podged everything to the tile!

I used 2 inch thick wood and cut it down to the size of my picture! I didn't want to mod podge my pictures on because I change them all the time so I used carpet tacks in the corners to hold everything on.

The center of this flower is actually just a big brad from your local scrapbook store

Digital Scrapbooking

Tired of the mess of Scrapbooking but love to look at them?
Here is the perfect solution.

For Christmas my Husband got me a digital scrapbook program called Scrapbook Boutique! I have love this program it is about $30 at amazon or you can get it at Target and many other stores. The awesome thing about this program is it links you online so if you want to buy more templates or paper etc it is easy! But it comes with great templates paper and embellishments already! I have been using templates so I can get caught up before it is too late. I also found Scrapping Simply that will print 12 x 12 for $1.99 with a $5 flat shipping rate! I have loved the quality! Hope this helps all who wanted to get started digital scrapbooking!
