Apron Card with Recipe.

I found the tutorial at: for the apron. I just made a template for the apron.

I added my recipe for homemade Granola.

For the rolling pin I used part of a skewer and wrapped it with coffee dyed coffee filters. Then I inked it up with vintage photo.

A cute way to sent a recipe....Renate

My Mod Podged Computer Table with Book Pages.

A few weekends ago, I finally decided to make a little table for my computer. I already had the piece of wood. I took it to my brother, who cut it to size 34x24, cut the corners off and sanded it for me. He also attached the flanges (I think that's what they are called) on the bottom. So, all I had to do is screw in the metal pipes and Mod Podge it.

I ripped up a lot of different pages as you can see from the following pictures.
Old song pages...

Old dictionaries...

Old survey pages...

Here you can see the shine after it was done. I did 2 coats of Mod Podge, then 2 coats of Polycrylic protective finish in clear gloss. You have to let each coat dry for a day.


These are the flanges (discs). These and the metal pipes where about $90.

I'm quite happy with the result. Now the computer won't be sitting on the dining room table anymore.

Flip Book.

This book was fun to make.

I added a little turtle charm.

 Here I used the Swirly Scribbles Die from Stampin Up.I covered it with UTEE to make it stronger. I made a small paper bag and a little notepaper, a tiny envelope and 2 tags.

I just paper clipped the shaker pocket to this page.

Here I added a fold out page.

This tag I just laminated.

On the outside I attached a pocket.

This is the back. I glued a pocket on this side.

I made this journal card. It's from a song by Zach Williams.

These are fun to make.

Stamping with Utee Card.

I found the tutorial at:, on how to stamp into UTEE.
This technique is fun to make.

I made a little pocket and added a notebook paper I made for notes.

Also added a small envelope with a paperclip.

Here's another close-up.

Happy Birthday Card.

I embossed a piece of cardstock first, then I used pink and copper embossing powder. Then I put UTEE on top to make it run.

Just a litter shaker panel.

The inside I left simple...Renate

A smaller Version of the Pocket Folder.

I'm using a clip to hold  this folder closed.

In the center I decorated a small paper bag with washi tape. I added a laminated piece of paper.

I made an other file folder and laminated a tag.

This is the laminated paper from the center.

View from the outside.

The red paper is the outside pocket.

Here you can see the size difference....Renate
