Colorful Creations blog hop -- My Favorite Things -- featuring Bella Blvd. :)

Hi everyone :) 

Welcome to the Colorful Creations My Favorite Things blog hop!  If you have arrived here from Connie's blog welcome to the hop!! If you have stumbled across this by chance and want to play along then you can head back to the Colorful Creations site to start at the beginning.

My name is Julie Tucker-Wolek  and here is my project showcasing my favorite things --- Well, if you have visited me before ... you will know that I love to take TRASH and making it a TREASURE!! :)  SO my FAVORITE thing to make is altered projects!! :)

For my project today -- I took the packaging from a Fancy Pants journal tag package I had :)

Here is the front :)

And the back :)

I live in Phoenix, Arizona and it is HOT here ... like surface of the SUN HOT!! LOL!!! 

But come October and November it cools down, and that is when my family gets REALLY BUSY and head to a TON of events outdoors ... 

so I made a mini album out of this packaging that I will fill with photos from our adventures this Fall! :) 

I used Bella Blvd.'s "Hello Autumn" collection on my mini album :) 

I cut some cardboard pieces down to size for the pages on the inside :)

Can't wait to fill this up and put in this year's Fall photos :)

Thanks so much for joining us on the blog, make sure you hop on over to Sabrina's blog for more inspiration!

Make sure you make Colorful Creations your last stop on the hop to see how to win the wonderful prize up for grabs!

Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate it! :)

Just like that -- Brookie is 8!! -- and YES! I did glue the birthday candle to my project!! :)

Hi all!!

I wanted to share a mini album I made a couple of weeks ago, with Brookie's Birthday photos in it :) 

I used Lily Bee, GCD Studios, Kaiser Craft, Simple Stories, Heidi Swapp ... and probably a whole bunch more :) 

And YES!!! I adhered the "8" candle from her cake to the front of my album ... why, is that wrong??!! LOL!! :) 

I added a pocket to this page to hold Brookie's "Birth Certificate" for her bunny she made :) 

And I made a pocket for the last page to hold all the cards she got :) 

Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate it! :)

Happy Harvest -- featuring Bella Blvd. :)

Hi everyone :) 

I wanted to share a burlap wreath I made with a little bit of Bella Blvd. "Hello Autumn" collection in it :)

Best part about this wreath ... is .... I DID NOT permanently adhere the leaves to the wreath -- I used the stems of the leaves and tied them onto the wreath's metal base -- so once Thanksgiving is over -- I can switch this to Christmas decor :) 


Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate it! :)

Frame Me!!! :)

Hi everyone! 

Our latest challenge is live over at LESSology and this time we want to see a Beautiful Scenery, using an upcycled item!! :) 

Create a scene on your project! :) 

I took a different twist on this challenge! :) 

We have vaulted ceilings in our home, and the canvas I made shortly after moving in here, was kind of boring to me :)   So I wanted to create a new "SCENE" on my wall!! 

I started with these little round frames I found at a yard sale a few months ago ...


Then I had some papers from Little Yellow Bicycle, American Crafts and Basic Grey that I got on clearance at my LSS and bought some various sized frames at the Dollar Store ... add in some baskets that I also found at the Dollar Store ... and I have created a new "SCENE" for my living room wall!! :) 

I picked several photos from our life that I wanted to showcase! 

And here is what I did with the frames from the yard sale ... I added a piece of paper to the back of them, and then took some vintage Scrabble Tiles and spelled out various "Family" words to showcase them amongst the photos... 

And as the years ... (and photos!!) go on ... I can add more to the wall! :) 

Here is what our winner will win from Studio Calico --

Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate it! :)
