Recent Swaps and projects

hey guys! well here are a few projects that i've been working on ive signed up for a lot of swaps on the scrapbeach and i've also have been tryin to start an etsy account. i was so excited the other day i got my first sell and i only had the items posted for 2 days! yay! but anyways. i really have been emersed in my scrapbook and creating different things. as you all my know i love vintage anything but im thinking that i might just focus on my creations and doing items for my etsy account.. Please check it out shop called ScrapHeadz.. its not all glammed up but it works! if anyone would be able to help me with a logo that would be great!

so with that said i might be taking a break from swap for a little while, i'm still in nursing school and really need to focus on that for right now. only 5 more weeks to go, and then i have to take my the NCLEX-RN which is a nationwide test to become licensed as a registered nurse.. but after i pass! (positive thinking) i'm going all out for my scrapbooking until i find a job.. but enough of the personal info! lets get started

my first projects are the grunge roses i did for a trade on the scrapbeach. i made over 30 grunge roses.. i think that they came out pretty good... i really want to try different paper effects or paper patterns to get so specific looks that might match some of the popular paper lines out there. but i was super happy with the way that these came out.

Second was a March pin swap that i did on the scrapbeach. the theme was springtime. so this is what i came up with.. i had to posted on my etsy account. but they already sold! yay! when i think of springtime  i think of my mom's garden, which is massive! i hate it.. over like 300 flowers and plants between the front of the house and back.. she has like 3 separate gardens and tons of flower boxes! but it looks amazing when it all done. and especially makes the backyard. we have no trees back there so it really makes the open space nice.

Third project - was a charm swap in entered at the scrapbeach. this theme was pink, brown, and a touch of lace.  then you had to make a tag for it.. i really love tags.. they are simple and don't take a lot of time.. also you get to see how different people that the theme and run with it.. the theme really made me think of monkeys for some reason. lol i don't know so i based my tag and charm off of these monkey charms i got from meijer for like $0.99. they also are a great place to buy some beads.. they are about the same price as some of the bead you might get from michaels or joanns.. but they do have sales sometimes.. most of the beads are by Blue Moon.. but they aren't bad if you lookin for simple cheap beads. also Wal-Mart has a great selection of cheap beads. i found recently the dollar bin there as well and its great. also they have tons of beads that are only 2.00 and 4.00 dollars and you get over 50 bead usually.
but here is my "Bananas for Bananas" charma and tag.

the last project was my etsy! i wanted to do a Stick Pin kit. for beginner or even more advanced people. this was from my personal collection of beads and charms.. i really have found some great deals.. so i went crazy just buying up beads.. so this is a way to get over my buyers remorse! lol and share some of my supplies. there are 3 kits available at $20 plus shipping. you do get over 80 pins in 14 different styles. you also get over 200 beads and 6 different spacers. you also get some flowers and a handmade grunge rose by Me. to use as you wish as an embellishment. And you can make a stick pin for it! yay!

thank you all for visiting!
