Gipple's Framed Layout

I wanted to post both the pictures the second to see it alittle better.  My girl Meagan called and asked me to make this for her.  She needed to take a gift to one of her customers.  She is a contractor and just finished up a big job.  She said they are wine, antique and have all kinds of animal hids around.  I stuck with the cute girl stuff.  I pulled out the wine cork and antique~ish paper.  Then pulled out the jewels and new a wine bottle was a must.  I made the wine bottle with vellum paper and Tim  Holtz disstress ink.  Meagan brought me the corks.  You have to have corks.  I will be posting a video this weekend.  I used Tim's distress tool around all the edges.  Then found that a Tomboy marker works great with his inks.  I used Vintage Photo and Walnut Stain with the marker around all the edges.  It makes me crazy if white is showing.  The wine cork paper is from Recollections and bought on the clearance rack.  The other paper is from K&Co one is Classic "K" Collection and the other is Life Journey.  The Iamroses flower item numbers I have are the small green roses R6-767 and the cherry blossom olive green are S3-839.  I tried finding the number to the pink ones but can not.  They are Iamroses for sure and so are the leaves.  There item numbers are K1-805/2 for the skeleton leaves, ZQLO-2 small and ZQLO-0 for the bigger roses leaves.  The Lovely Lace and Elegant Edges Cricut cartridges we used to cut out the letters and the label on the bottle.  My Mind's Eye and Inkadinkado were the stamps to emboss on the label.  Tim's stamp I used on the curled part of the cork paper.  The back of the page was white.  The words on the Urban Grunge stamp set are perfect to make a paper look.  You will want to hear all the details of how I put this together.  So, hit Youtube for the video.  Here is the link

Victorian Valentine's Day Tag

Hey, Crafters!!!  I do have to say this tag is super cute.  Thanks to Robyn @ Injoystampin on Youtube inspired me to make a tag today.   These I would call can be a quick craft fix.  I knew right of the bat I would use My Mind's Eye Lost & Found Market Street paper collection.  This paper company is so FAB.  The roses in the paper just yell Valentine's.  I really built from the bottom up on this tag.  I started with the 3-D flower from Pro 31 Designs store on  I actually placed the french word "ticket" down and layed out the Martha rose buds around it.  I think in my video I said the flowers first.  Oh well.  The stick pin is from, LOVE!!! The high wheel bike came from an Etsy store called TheThinVeil.  They do have some in a lot of 12.  The french word ticket, heart and upper banner came from Making Memories collection called Amour Je t'Adore.  They went perfectly with the paper collection.  The butterfly above the our love story banner is from Pro 31 Designs, Love.  The "ribbon" is from my stash which I bought at Joann's on clearance.  The back has two pockets with some tags.  I am very excited you stopped by. Please check out all my videos on Youtube~~~CrazedCrafter. Thanks for taking the time to support me and my crafting.  Hugs Robbin

Lexi's Composition Notebook

This is notebook day in the CrazedCrafters crib.  I covered a composition book for Kay at work.  She showed her granddaughter and she had to have one.  She loves pink, purple and bling.  I don't have a lot of bling on her but I am sure she will like it.  I wanted it to kinda be adultish so her and Grandma can write together.  I started by picking out the hounds tooth(unknown paper) for the Tim Holtz dress form.  I decided to use a dark purple so the pinks, lighter purples and silver would pop.  I had the pink fringe in my stash from Joann Fabric.  I made the lollipop flower.  The flower center, accent to the left and stick pin are the Wild Orchard Crafts ribbon buckle.  The pearls are from SaCrafter at    I added several silver bead stings and several white feathers.  The white butterfly is a Recollections which I don't believe is available anymore.  I used my Cricut and the Cursive cartridge to cut out her names.  I sprayed all the paper with Sentlizing Silver from Lindy's stamp gang.

Abundance Notebook 2010

This notebook is so FAB and beautiful.   I am loving everything about this notebook.  The paper is from My Mind's Eye Lost & Found series.  The 3-D brown flowers and pearl flower center is from Pro32 Design shop at  The fluffy flower is from SaCrafter shop at  I was so very excited that the rhinestones from ReCollections match perfect.  You can never go wrong with Tim Holtz Sewing Room Sizzix die.  The pinkish paper is from the Mariposa paper stack.   
You must check out the book by Sarah Ban Breathnach, Simple Abundance.  It is a book that you read daily.  It takes about 5 minutes at the most to read her daily thoughts.  It makes you think about how to realized what you have.  Sometimes we just need a little push to get our minds thinking positively.  There is so much negative thrown into our lives.  It really is a great book.  Thanks for coming by, Hugs, Robbin

A Friend's B-day card

This is a great simple card.  I used DCWV Sweet Stack paper. First I rounded the corners to match the stamp.  It is called Flower Box by Hero Arts. The Happy B~day stamp is from Micheal's dollar bin.  I have had it for a couple years.  I inked all the edges with Jenni Bowlin Brown Sugar.  The Happy B~Day and flowers I used Jenni's Chewing Gum.  {I ordered 4 more inks while uploading my video.} I used Tim Holtz Bundled Sage Distressed ink for the leaves.  I taped the American Craft ribbon to the pink.  The bow had to be fluffy I will call it.  I used glue dots to keep it fluffy.    It is so her and I know she will love it.  Check out the video on Youtube my channel Crazedcrafter.  Thanks Hugs Robbin

Teaching from the ~Heart~

I have another composition book to share.  I really love covering these books.  This book did not sell at the craft show.  I had a lot of teachers look at it too.  I used notebook scrapbook paper to cover the front trimmed in red.  It turned out super cute.  I left some space at the bottom to personalize it with the name.  Thanks for stopping, Hugs Robbin
