A new (to me) technique!

Too many times throughout my paper crafting adventures, I come across a new idea... or a better way of doing things...maybe just perfecting something I have been battling and think to myself, wouldn't this make a good blog post??? Then time gets the best of me and feel like I missed my opportunity! Though I used this nifty little technique at least a month ago, and someone else probably thought of it before me, I wanted to share it now while I am thinking about it! :o)
I know there are different colored book binding rings for sale somewhere....maybe 7gypsies....Tim Holtz.... You know something distressed and simply anything other color than those same old silver rings! Since I have been experimenting with the Tim Holtz alcohol inks, I knew I had to try it out on them shiny rings. It is suppose to stick to just about anything so I applied some of the natural colors set, and it worked great!
Don't forget to protect your work surface! I use the cellophane packaging my papers come in. It took a couple of applications on each side to get the deep color that's on these.
So much nicer than uncalled for plain silver rings! It limits the shopping around for color coordination... and makes me a happy camper! :o) Give it a try! Thanks for reading!

Custom album for the parents of "Sweet Layla"

I had to pop in and show off an album I just finished. Though Layla is a bit young to enjoy her album to it's fullest, I'm sure someday it will be a treasure :O)
Made with the paper*doll collection by K&Co, I had no trouble coordinating a few baby embellishments and ribbons from Martha Stewart and K&Co, to make finish off this sweet little album :O) I look forward to using the rest of the papers for PFOP's next challenge album and maybe even a mother's day project!
Thanks for looking!
