Sassafras Indie Girl

Last week my sis sent me some scrappy goodies. It ws such a nice surprise and a wonderful pick-me-up! The RAK included parts of Echo Park, Studio Calico and Sassafras, oh, and some wonderful Raspberry Thickers, cause a girl can NEVER have too many...I think! I love the Indie Girl, it is an amazing line and I could not wait to cut into it. These are pics of us with our DD, who is in AF JROTC in High School. She is very proud to be part of that and we are very proud of her. She takes this very seriously and is working very hard to do well with it.

Supplies: Cardstock: Stampin' Up, 7 Gypsies; Patterned Paper: Sassafras; Fabrips by Studio Calico; Die Cuts: Sassafras; Chipboard: Scenic Route; Stickers: Sticko (phrases), Cosmo Cricket (letters); ink: Tim Holtz Distress Inks; Glossy Accents: Ranger

So I am off to play in my little room. My craft room. A place of solace and peace...where I feel good and happy. A place that I have not been able to visit often. I find that I spend way too much time on the internet, and it cuts into my craty time...and my crafty time relaxes me, relieves tension, and makes me happy! See you soon. Love and Hugs! Lara

My version of a printer's tray

This is my version of a printer's tray. I wanted one for a long time, and love the vintage inspired way they look. I came across this wall hanging at a garage sale and knew that I wanted to work with it. I bought it for $2.00. I repainted it, covered some damaged areas with black card stock and added some Vintage Poppy paper from Lily Bee.

Because it does not have any glass, I was fearful of the photos getting dusty, so after I added them, I precut some regular transparency to fit in the openings over the pictures. Then I added the goodies--emphemera, ribbon, chipboard, and journaling spots. I cannot wait to hang this up in our home. It makes me so happy.

Supplies: Cardstock: Bazzill, DCWV; Patterned Paper: Lily Bee; Ribbon: Making Memories, Creative Cafe, Craft supply; Rubons: Lily Bee; Chipboard: K & Co, Chatterbox, Scenic Route; Diecuts: The Girl's Paperie, K & Co, Cosmo Cricket, Chatterbox, craft supply; Flowers: Prima; Gems: Prima; Sentiment sticker: Cloud 9 Design; Mini clipboard: unknown

So Happy August to you!!!! Love and Hugs, Lara
