When the air started turning cooler it put me in the mood to create some fall flowers from old books.  Old books are a dime a doze and they make really great looking flowers! 
 I worked until I figured out how to create the flowers and then added them to a series of fall cards I was making using  the new Bo Bunny Fall paper line the mini 8 punches.
 I've cre
ated three vides, each video teaching you how to make a different kind of flower!  Watch the videos and learn how to create these fun flowers!

My Minds Eye Chalk Studio 

Chalkboard continues to be a popular theme in home decor and it has started showing up in scrapbooking!  I love the new Chalk Studio Line from My Minds Eye because it blends the scrapbook paper with home decor!



This line offers three papers that can be used for scrapbooking, but when you cut on the lines you'll find on the papers you can easily pop them into a frame!  How easy is that?
4x6.  These sheet will also work well in any divided page protector, like Project Life. 
5x7
8x10


These pieces would look great when placed in our 12x12 frame! (shown below in the frame) 

You can purchase the frame on our website here. 

The line also includes layered stickers, tags, and chipboard pieces!

There are many ways to create the chalk look for scrapbook pages, cards or tags! 

This christmas card is a fun card to make using Hampton Art White pigment ink, set with clear embossing powder and accented with a prismacolor white pencil.  Remember nearly ALL white inks are pigments, which means they will take a very long time to set, and really need set with embossing powder.  It's easy!

Stamp your image with white ink.
Sprinkle clear embossing powder on the ink, and tap off the excess.
Heat with a heat gun until the clear powder sets!  

Looking for a fun way to write on a dark envelope?  Try the white pencil or the white uniball pen!  The uniball white pen is a must have and is a great pen for journaling!

We also stock chalkboard vinyl, chalkboard labels, chalkboard paint, and chalkboards!  Find them here!

You can order these products online in our web store!

You can purchase these products from our booth at 
Rabbittown Antiques and Artisans 
419 East Main Street
Danville, IL 61832
Open Mon-Sat 10-5  Open Sunday Noon-5.  Our booth is upstairs! 

Hope to see you soon!

Scrap Class Super Easy Mini Album
Saturday May 18th 3:00 (plan on at least 2 hours)
Teacher:  Julie Creek
Sign Up for this  mini album class here!

Mini albums make great gifts and are a wonderful place to store memories.  During this class I will provide the basic album and instruction.  You provide the papers and embellishments to make your own them and style of album.  This is an easy album to make, and is open to any level of scrapbooker or crafter.  You don't even have to know how to scrapbook to take this class.  If you can craft,  you can make this album!  I've designed this class so that you can custom design your own album.  Make a Christmas gift, or just a special album for yourself.  Either way you will be happy with the results of this great mini album!

Each person should bring the supplies listed.  (each person needs their own tools).  If you have any questions about the tools or supplies please contact me at creek@dish.net

Supply list:
1.  12" paper cutter. (this is a MUST)
2.  Pencil
3.  12" Ruler
4.  Scotch Quick Dry Adhesive
5.  Ink for accenting edges that matches your paper/color theme.  (I recommend an ink pad like Tim Holtz Distress Ink, Archival Ink, or Stampin Up ink pads.  Cats Eye ink or small 1" ink cubes are too small)
6.  Ink Blending tool to move and blend ink.
7.  Scor Board or something to scor and fold with.
8.  Standard hole punch.
9.  scissors
Papers and embellishments you should bring to class.
1.  1-sheet of 12x12 Pattern paper for outside front and back covers. (this is your front and back that is most visable)

6.  4-sheets of 12x12 cardstock for matting photos in the album, and for use on the tag pocket.
6.  3 yards matching ribbon.  (would be good to have bakers twine, etc that match)
If your paper line or theme has matching deminsional stickers, punch out sheets, chipboard or other accent pieces it would be a good idea to bring them.  You can use these items to accent your album, and build your album front.
Give some thought to your album theme, pick a title, and be thinking of how you would like to decorate your album front. I will help you put the album together and pull it all together!
