Zombie's and Creating a Perfect Day

I spent most of the day working on this mini album.
I just love making my own embellishments. I should really stop buying them as even though I have so many, I still make my own.
Take this kit I put together. It has so many embellishment, but I keep making my own.
One thing I noticed (I will have to change for next time) when I put this mini kit together is that I need to add more papers. I haven't ran out, but I did need to use some white card stock for a few of my tags and such.      
Here is page 1.                        
I took the pages out of the coils as it is easier to work with. I made these tags out of my white card stock (which wasn't in my kit) and then added the dies to the top (they were in my kit).          
 I added distress ink to the white felt flowers, then added pearls to the punched out border.
 Page 2. This is a fun page. It is a slider. You pull on the flower and the top flap slides up.
 See, isn't it fun. I love interactive pages :)
 Again I made these flowers with punches and then formed them and added a pearl.
 I made a tag that slides out from the slider card.
Onto My Day:
Hubby and I drove Kristy to Blake's as they were going to the movies.
Then we did a few errands.
Went to my Local Scrap booking Store. I went there for some paper for my Copics. Left $ 96.00 less in my pocket and guess what .....I forgot the paper.
Guess I have to wait till Tuesday as they are closed till then :(
Came home and watched a couple Zombie Movies, while I worked on this mini album.
Picked up Kristy, grabbed an ice cream at DQ.
Then came home to two more Zombie movies and more creating ;)

We woke up to snow, and it is still snowing. Just when most of the snow had melted, sigh.

Hope you are having a creative weekend...without snow ;)



  1. we had snow the other day. Mom said the 4 letter word and yep, you guessed it we had snow.
    Time to eat my ham and eggs made by Katie. She is taking care of her sick Momma today.:) How nice.
    Happy creating my friend your mini is looking adorable. Haven't tried the slider card yet. Looks a bit complicated to me. Maybe next album.

  2. Agh! Chilly here, but no snow today...I love the pullout, pop out thingy in the album! What a totally cool and pretty accent! And isn't half the fun buying those pretty embellies? I keep making my own flowers too, but have a bunch in my stash!:0)

  3. It's so pretty!

  4. so pretty! love all the butterflies and flowers

  5. love the way you distress things. Been thinking I should do my own flowers as well but then I have so many bought ones to use up. Was funny at around 3 am when I couldnt sleep and was doing my colouring with copics, I laughed and said Tracy needs to do a tutoral for me heheheh. Am still finding it hard to find the right paper down here, but when its cut out and blocked it is ok. Have a good day

  6. Your mini looks so pretty! I love the little postage stamp :) Even though you're having s--- your day sounds wonderful! Staying in watching movies and crafting all day! Aaahh! We haven't had s---, but we have had a TON of rain!

  10. Lol, you and your zombies, you kill me :0) Reminds me of my dad though. We used to watch all kinds of zombie movies when I was little. That's how I got in to liking horror films, I think.

  12. Great look at your mini album, so nice! I do the same thing, buy lots of embellishments and then make my own. Will we ever learn? Probably not, at least in my case!
