Time to "Dive In" to the NEW "Just Add Water" Front Porch Kit!!!

Woo Hoo!!! The wait is over and you can now DIVE IN to the spectacular NEW Front Porch Kit...
The Full Reveal of the Kit is now available to see at the Little Blue House and online at www.thelittlebluehouseonline.com.

Here is a look at all the "Just add Water" Design Board...It is overflowing with Creative Potential!!!

So many wonderful products, fabrics, embellies, and of course...little unexpected treasures which are what make our Front Porch Kits so special!!! Visit the LBH website or blog to see more detailed photos of the Design Board...or better yet, stop by the LBH and see it for yourself...It's amazing and the pictures just can't capture all the splendid elements and textures! 

Here are a few of the projects I designed using my "Just Add Water" Front Porch Kit...

First up, is my Just add Water double layout...This project is a featured BluePrint project...so you will recieve a full "how to" and process photos when you purchase your kit. You will also recieve the title cut outs and templates for the splashes.

Next up, I just couldn't resist creating another project using our NEW LBH Clip Art Frames...I just love these things!!!

I love this sweet pic of Kaden looking up at me...I will be sharing more design details on this project on a future post here on my blog...so stay tuned!

I love that everything is clipped on to the frame...so when I want to change it out, I just remove the pieces and attach to a 12x12 piece of cardstock and ...waa laa...I have a page to put in his album!

I have one more fun project to share with you today and then I'll do a separate post later this week with more projects...
This is my "Take Note" Dry Erase Frame...

It is an 8x10 frame with glass...The majority of my elements are all underneath the glass so that way I can write on top and easily clean when I want to make a new note. 

I adorned the top of my glass with only one element...it is this gorgeous metal flower from FabScraps...it was too dimensional to go under the glass...I love how it turned out!

Stop by the LBH to see mine and all the other DT projects...they will BloW you AwAy!!! Be sure to check out the Inspiration Gallery on the LBH website to see even more FaBuLouS Projects designed from "Just Add Water"...AND...
Don't forget to visit the LBH blog and post a comment for a chance to WIN a FREE kit...today is the final day! 

Kits are limited and only available while supplies last....so don't let this one swim away!!! 

Stay true to your passion--Keep Creating!
Miss Tracy :)

P.S. Here's a quick peek at one more of my projects...and yes...I used papers and fabrics from the kit...along with some fabulous VerDay paints from Ten Seconds Studio...this is what we will be making for Hot Metal Mama's in August...
It's a beautiful altered Lampshade! More info soon to come about the workshop.... Stay tuned!

My Altered Train Case...a Travel Theme!

 Hello Friends!
I recently started teaching a NEW Workshop at the Little Blue House...It's called Miss T's Pickers Project!

I love junque-ing and finding old items and transforming them into wonderful keepsakes and decor. I'm a true Picker at heart!!!

This month my Pickers Project is old Train Cases...Here is a peek at one that I have transformed with a Travel Theme in mind. My plan is to house all my favorite travel momentos, memorabilia, and minibooks inside of it!  Being a Mom of 5, I have never really had the luxury of traveling much...but I have great plans for trips in the future (now that my kiddos are getting older)!!! 

This case will be perfect for storing my brochures and info relating to the places I want to go and very soon a special place to house all the interesting things I bring back from my travels!

If you would like to unite with other Pickers here in our area, consider joining us this Saturday at the LBH! You can find all the info about our Meeting on the LBH blog...
Just click the link below...

Everyone will be transforming their train cases with their own themes and styles...I can't wait to see the end results of the LBH Pickers Creativity!!!...and of course, I'll be there to help every step of the way!!! I will be pulling out all kinds of Lotions & Potions for us to play with while altering our cases...AND...I have some valuable tips to share along the way!

Hope you will join us!
Miss Tracy :)
