Ikea Lamp
Fun with Alcohol Inks!

Ikea Knappa Lamp kit $24.99

In a kit there are 48 of these pieces.

You will need Alcohol Ink I chose these 4 colors but you
can choose and many as you want.
Stream, Meadow, Denim, Stonewashed
You will also need rubber gloves, a 1/4 of a round sponge,
heavy craft paper to cover your work space. You must
work fast the ink dries really fast.

Take you ink bottles and drop large drops of ink onto
your shade pieces. Take you sponge and with an up and down
motion sponge all the colors so that they are all touching
each other.

This is what it will look like after you sponge it.

This is what it looks like dry.
Big change! It's really cool to watch!
I used less than half of a bottle of ink. A little goes a long way!

My inspiration was beach glass. I love the look
of beach glass in a vase and wanted that look.
This hangs to the left of my craft desk over my palm tree.

This is what it looks like with the lights off.
I'm very happy with the way it turned out.

So in a little over an hour of inkin' fun I now have a
really fun lamp. I really like how it turned out!

Less than 2 hours to complete, less than $40
Really cool fun lamp!

Baby Boy Gift

Welcome Baby Boy Gift.
My Friend Jamie is having a Little Boy sometime this month.
I'm sending this to her as her Welcome Baby Gift.
This is designed so once she has the little guy she adds a
picture every month on the front and then she can add a small photo and journal about his milestones, apt, vacations, etc on the back. This goes from Birth to 1 year. I really hope she likes this. I know with two little ones it's hard to find the time to scrapbook and preserve all those precious memories but I really hope this helps! I didn't embellish the pages much it's really hard to do when you don't have the pictures to work with but she is a scrapbooker so I'm sure she can add those special touches after adding pictures.
Thanks for taking a peek.
Happy Stampin'

First card of the new year!

This is the first chance I had the time to stamp this year.
I love this stamp. I found it at Create it Crafts I just love this store. They had a moving sale last week everything in the store was 50% off! My BFF Rhonda and I helped clean out the store:-)
My DH finally made my ink pad holder this weekend.
Thank you HUBBY!
