Snow Day Creations

Hello friends!
It's snowing outside, so what better way to spend my day than crafting and blogging.
I created this layout using one of my favorite photos of my grandmother and great grandfather. Since my passion is for crafting vintage style, I find working with old photos to be so easy and enjoyable.
I used the Open Book line by Maggie Holmes from Crate Paper This is a huge line with tons of embellishments!

 Along with the layout I also create a feature in every issue of Create magazine called, Party Trio. Which consists of a gift bag, card and party favor. For the Jan/Feb issue I went with a Valentine theme. I really wanted the gift bag to look like an old worn vintage suitcase. I really had fun looking up photos and finding metal brads and buckles to create this look. For my favor I cut out 2 paper hearts and hand stitched them to create a pocket to fill with candy. I used the Authentique Crush line because it had the perfect vintage styled valentine papers, instead of the bright colors that I typically see.

You can see these and more in the latest issue of Create magazine at

Wishing you a lovely weekend, Lindsey

New Year, New Crafts!

Hello friends!
I hope you have had a wonderful start to the new year. It's definitely been a cold start to the year! I've been busy scrapbooking and cardmaking. Doing it both for my self and for my job keeps me very busy, but I enjoy it. This is the second year I've been blessed to be apart of this awesome online magazine. It's called Create and it's published by Scrapbook Generation. I'm lucky enough to work for them at their local store here in Missouri and was so thrilled to be asked to help them with their online magazine. You can view this issue and past ones here at
The best part? The issues are are free!!! So please check them out.

I also teach card classes every month at the store. I am so lucky to have a great group of ladies that come to class. My favorite style of course for cards are vintage, so I was very happy to find some cute paper by Authentique and Graphic 45 for my upcoming Valentine class.
Here is a peek of the cards as I finish them up.

Wishing you a wonderful day, Lindsey

Crafting Time

Hello dear friends
I am popping out of my craft room today to share a tag I recently created.
I started off with a #8 tag inked with Gathered Twigs Distress Ink. Then layered a big lace doily that I found in the baking section at the craft store. Next was my favorite part! Layering the patterned paper and embellishments.
Both the paper and embellies come from the same collection. Family Stories by Teresa Collins.
My new addiction this year seems to be for enamel dots. I can't seem to finish off any project without adding at least a few of these little bright colored dots to my projects. I also used a sketch to start off this tag by Scrapbook Generation. You can find a variety of sketches and all the latest pretty paper lines at
Now it's back to work for me! Working on some fun projects for next month's issue of Create magazine!

Neutral Afghan

Hello ladies!
Another afghan has rolled off my
trusty crochet hook!

As far as the color scheme, this one
is quite a departure for me!

It was made for a male, so my usual
palette would not have been appropriate.

I really do like the rich colors though!
Tuesday I had the pleasure of taking
a scenic drive through northern Arkansas.
Finding this church in the Boxley Valley was
one of my destinations.  It was so lovely.
Have a beautiful day!
"For the earth will be filled
With the knowledge of the
glory of the Lord,
As the waters cover the sea."

Yarn Love

Hello sweet friends!
My little dog, Barney, is just as
crazy about yarn as I am!

I am always taking pictures of him with
my yarn because he looks so adorable!

To him, a skein of yarn is a pillow. 

He's my sweet little buddy!
It was a cold winter so I let his fur grow.
Soon he will be going to the groomer!

Happy April!
I hope you all are having
a wonderful week!
Love, Twyla

also have loved you, abide in
My love." - John 15:9
