Rolled Rose Tut

I figured since I finally found better light I'd show how to roll the roses - I said I would after a previous video but I really do feel odd talking to myself doing these videos... so weird. I am not the best demonstrator, and I said 'weird' 50 million times during the video... I never say weird... til today : )

These roses are not my 'creation' I saw them once on youtube and I did not favorite it so I am having a hard time giving the original uploader credit... thank you to the original uploader and if you tell me who you are I will put a link to your video in the 'about' box : )

So you say what is so special about paper roses? Nothing, lol, but they are easy and cheap to make and look great on album covers... and if you make them white they are easy to color... they are not 'special' but they do make things look special : )

I colored these with Glimmer Mist. in the past I have used paint (acrylic and also water colors) if you want more of a flat color try a mist like sprinklers (october afternoon makes them) and if you want them super colorful and vibrant try Dylusions (Ranger brand) - those are my suggestions but you could pretty much color them with anything... they look really pretty with that furry embossing powder on the tips and glitter glue... - I am just sayin you can really dress these simple flowers up nice : )

I hope u give them a try, heck they would be a great thing to do with your kids they are so simple and easy!

Prima Romance Novel Albums (Preview)

Hello! Happy Memorial Day! Thank you so much to all our soldiers, past and present, I appreciate you and your gift of promised freedom very much.
I cannot believe it is already May 27th! May 27th is a very special day to me, it is my sweetie's Birthday! He is getting so old, LOL, I know, I know, how do I stay 29 year after year and he just gets older and older... hahaha ; )


I can't complain about the weather, it has been absolutely beautiful! Me and Morticia Addams have the same taste in weather :  )

I have been working on a couple more Albums this week - these I love! I probably just like them so much because of the paper, the paper I am using is beyond gorgeous.... it is gorgelicious! It is the Prima Romance Novel - yes I know I joined the party late on this paper but it still makes it no less beautiful : )

I thought I'd give you a peek at them in progress - I still have a days work left on them when I get the closures for the front. I am not going to cover the front too much with decoration, I love the paper too much!

here is a little picture preview and I also did a video you can check out here or click on any of the pictures and hopefully they take you to youtube.

The back

I cannot wait to finish them, I want to gift them to their recipients, I hope they will love them!

Have an awesome rest of the day! ~Lorri
