Mini Accordion Albums

This is super fun to make and super easy. The mini album holder is a brochure holder and the albums are disk folders that I got at staples. I inserted the accordion album into the disk folder. The folders are about 3x4 in size.

Tutorials coming soon

A lot of you have asked for instructions to some of my projects so I thought I would make some tutorials for you. I need to learn how to make links first and then I will be adding them. They should be up soon. If you want some instructions now you can e-mail me. My e-mail is under profile. Check back soon Ü

Fathers Day

I just love Basic Grey papers. The quality is fantastic. The letters on this layout are actually clear and I put pattern paper on the back just for more definition.

Kelsey and Kylie

One thing I love about this layout is the paper. I cut some of the flowers out to give it some 3-D. There is hidden journaling under the top right picture. This is my daughter Kelsey and granddaughter Kylie.

Tin Birthday Box

I made this for my daughter in-law. She wanted something to keep track of all the birthdays in our family. You can rotate the cards so that month will show. I put magnets on the back so you can put it on the frig. I used Tim Holtz dye inks for the tin.

Tim Holtz inks

I had to try the new inks I got today. They are the Tim Holtz dye inks. These are fantastic inks. I made the background on this card with the inks. I used my new Heidi Grace clear stamps. These stamps work really good with no conditioning. The ink goes on well and the impressions come out looking nice.

to find a way to keep track of all the

from any office supply store.

CD Rack Mini Albums

This is another project I did when I was teaching at
the scrapbook store. One thing nice about this is you
can have many different themed albums. Also what is
nice is you can insert more pages because
of the clasp that I put on each album.

Someone is in trouble

Kaylin just had to try on her mother's lipstick.

Brandon's Snowman

This is a snowman that my grandson Brandon
made at school. It is made out of a sock with
rice in it. I thought it was so cute and had to share.

Jamie's Box

This is a wood box my daughter Jamie altered.
she made this for her mother in-law for Christmas.
I think it's a beautiful gift.

Well, since I did not do any crafting today

Chris's Birthday card

Here is a card that I made for Chris.
(my son-in-law)
I always find making cards for guys
is always harder then making cards for girls.

Scripture Journal

I am going to teach this class at my church.
This is a journal for your scriptures.
When you find a favorite scripture you like,
you can write it down in your journal
and tell your feelings about.
I made it simple with not a lot of
embellishments to keep the cost down.

Explosion boxes are so fun to make.
You can add a lot of pictures to them
in one little box. And they are simply to make.

On the clear letters I used finger nail polish
to give them a little color


Do you like tags? I made this tag for a challenge.
