Welcome to St Louis Teets'!

Our good friends got married on Friday and instead of Jason driving his truck home that night we left it in front of their apt. down town and he rode home with me and the boys after dinner. This is what we found when we went to pick it up the next day. Funny thing is this happened within yards of where a security officer sits and we had a generic police report waiting for us when we got there. Nothing was dusted or even taken as evidence, see that nice screw driver on the floor board ;) I know the city of St Louis is over ran with crime, I mean they're ranked #1 in the country I believe and for good reason ;) I think what bothers me the most, is Jason bought himself a navigation unit, subs you name it for his truck when he got his bonus a couple years ago. That's the one thing he did with it, which he completely deserved. And some people completely took that away. I'm hoping that our insurance (Geico) covers this. I made sure to add extra coverage onto his truck after we added all this to it. So I guess we'll find out Tuesday what the verdict is.

Baby Boy Album

I made this album for my sister in law. Hopefully she's having a boy this month :D I used Helmar's Craft Glue to put the pages onto this 5 Tabbed Maya Road Album and their tape runner for everything else. I used Creative Imaginations Lullaby Boy Collection by IOD. The Robins Nest Dew Drops. Magistical Mememories chipboard painted with Tim Holtz crackle paint. Core'dinations White wash cardstock for the inner pages and tabs. Pea Lovey Dovey Font. WeRMemory Keepers Sew Easy, Jenni Bowlin Vintage Brown Stickers Alpha. I also glimmer misted the back cover instead of covering it with paper.

Altered Vintage Frame

We've had this huge frame sitting around the house for a while with no picture in it. So I decided that I was tired of looking at it ;) For this project I used the following

Helmar V2 Spray, Acid Free Glue and 450 Adhesive

Canvas Home Basics Twine and Canvas Shape

Liquitex Glossies Silver and Acrylic Black from Michaels

Bazzill Piglet from Tattered Angels

Shimmerz Sunset Strip

Unity Stamps- for the life of me I can't find the set I used on their site

Maya Road mini clothesline pins

Nicole Lombardo bling

Basically you need an old frame, some adhesive, stamps and your imagination :D

I started with spraying some V2 Adhesive onto the back of the frame piece. This didn't get as sticky as I wanted though. I think it had to do with the age of the frame. I then spread Helmar's acid free glue every where and spread it around. You can use a little water to get it a little thinner if you want. I then placed my papers on the backing. Feel free to put them on how ever you like. I got my vintage papers from collagestuff. After the paper is on how you like, make a mixture of Helmar's acid free glue and water. I also added the silver paint in this as well. Use a foam brush to brush on top of your paper. Let dry. Next, you can add your own stamps, paints journaling whatever you want to do. I opened up the bottle of Tattered Angles mist and painted a heart on the left had corner. I then sprayed the inside of the heart as well. For my canvas rectangle, I again used the paint/water/glue mixture on top then stamped images and sprayed with my mists. I then went over the whole thing with another misting of colors. When finished I used my twine and printed of some pics from my iPhone and used Maya Roads mini clips to attach them.
