Celebrate Freedom Mini Album

Back at the end of June I worked as a vendor (my family owns a glazed nut cart) at Celebrate Freedom, which is a huge free concert here in DFW. I love all of the bands that played, so I got to listen to good music all day. Awesome, right?

I wanted to make a mini album to document the event, so I grabbed some papers, embellishments, and a binder ring to put this together.

While I was there, I collected all of the free wristbands that everyone gives out. Since I never wear these after the events I get them at, I decided to include them in my album. I wasn't sure how I was going to do that at first, but then I decided just to stitch them down directly on to a page.

Have you ever included something like rubber bracelets into your scrapbooks?

Hazel and Ruby Copper Frame

Hey everyone,Today I'm sharing a simple, yet lovely frame that is super easy to DIY. Can you believe it's almost September? I'm so excited about that. Autumn is just around the corner, and my birthday is in (just over) one week!

I posted this DIY on the Hazel and Ruby blog.

I hope I've inspired you to go to the store and buy all of the wooden frames! They're so easy to customize and use with H&R products!

Scrapbooking our Beach Trip

I made these layouts last month, I'm just now sharing them though (oops!). I love scrapbooking! Although I love sewing, recycling projects, etc, scrapbooking had also been my favorite form of crafting.

Recently, I've been scrapbooking photos from our Memorial day beach trip! I made this first layout and entered it into Scrapbook Circles #hashtag challenge and I won! Yay! I used the hashtag #sisterselfie since I was using photos Taylor and I took.

For my second layout, I cut up some favorite beach patterned papers and lined them all up on the top of my layout.

What's your favorite type of crafting?
