If you've visited my blog throughout the last few years you know that I love to up- cycle! And during the past week I have collected all of the Heidi Swapp mists at Michaels, and I was left with the cute little containers/packaging that I knew I did not want to just throw into the recycle what did I do???
I combined my love of Swapp goodness with my love of  Docerela Creations stamps cuteness and....created these....

Supplies: Stamps: Docerela Creations- Je t'aime Paris, Favorite Quotes, Mix and Match II;  Patterned Paper, Chipboard, Mist, Container: Heidi Swapp; Embossing Powder: Recollections; Ink: Memento.

I actually used three different Docerela Creations stamp sets for this little upcycle and tag project! Check them out and go over to the shop to grab them because they are fab!!! I'm telling you her stamps are so versatile that you will be amazed at how you can use them on so many different projects!

Having a Smashing Good Time...

Hello! Happy Tuesday...Almost Wednesday! Woot Woot!!! I have been making an effort to scrap more and collect less. I'm doing fairly well on creating more, but I can't say the same about purchasing more scrap! Anyway...let's focus on the positive! LOL! So I've found several great places to spark my creativity, and here's the product of being inspired by a few challenges!

I created a page in my 2013 SMASH book about my love of photography! Yeah, you would probably  not know by looking at the quality of this photo, but I really do love photography! LOL!

The cute girl digi image is from Alica's Little Shop! Love this girl, and let me just tell ya' you will be seeing her a few more times within in the next few days! She's just so cute! The super cute polaroid digi is a from U Printables!!! The Banner and Photo printables are from Studio Calico (Umm...I think it's from one of the classes...I really need to be better about documenting my class printables- ugh)!And the doilies, button and other things are from my stash!!!
