Another Pre-Made!

I just love these color combos! Purple and greens...Green makes me happy!! This album measures 5x5 and is made from Pinecone Press blanks. I used 3 different blanks and glued them together to make an album. The blanks come in a variety of styles: one pocket, 3 tabs, 2 pocket, etc. The papers are from Scrap Within Reach and they even come in digital format! YAY! I bought the papers and the digital CD... Cardstock is from Bazzill and the ribbons, brads and buttons from my collection. Have a good laugh today!

Only 2 more weeks of school!!

This school year just flew by. Where does the time go? I have 2 at college, one in high school and one still at the middle school. I must admit I love the summer breaks...everyone is home. We try not to schedule anything over the summer, we all need a break!
FYI- I have yet to clean...It's not my fault though! My #3 son broke his ankle and a day later my hubby sprained his ankle very badly. I have TWO people on crutches, what are the odds?!? is my cheery card for the day. The papers are from Pinecone Press and the punch is from Paper Shapers. I used black Colorbox ink for my edges. Enjoy!

Sunny and Saturday!

What a difference a day makes! I still haven't cleaned, but I did some crafting and volunteered at the Relay for Life event. So sad and inspirational at the same time!! What a way for the community to come together and celebrate strength, hope and life!!
     Here is my card for the day, I love this blue flower paper! I cut 1" off from the front of the card and glued the green paper to the inside of the back portion. The papers are from Luxe Designs, (out of business) and the flower punch is Marvy. The button is from PTI and so is the twill. I love inking the edges and I used brown colorbox ink.

Play day for me!!

  I am supposed to be doing the usual this Friday, which is cleaning...But it is rainy, overcast and just plain yucky outside soooo I am playing with paper today to bring some sunshine into the house. I can always clean later, right!?!  The cardstock is Bazzill,  pattern papers from a DCWV stack I bought at Jo-Anns, and the buttons are from PTI. This card could really be used for a variety of situations, I like that.

Accordion Fold Album

One of my favorite little books to make is an accordion fold album. I use only one 12x12 sheet of cardstock for the base, but you can make these as long as you wish. This one is for the doggie lovers! I own 4 dogs at the moment...At a recent scrapbooking retreat, Susan B. bought this pre-made,  finished it after dinner and showed us the album. We were blown away by the end result. This is exactly what I had envisioned when we started selling the pre-mades! She did a fantastic job and we loved seeing the end result!! Most of our buyers finish their albums or give them away before showing us their handiwork! Great job, Susan!!

I'm BACK!!

Hello again. I can't believe how busy I have become. That and the fact I broke my tailbone, (ouch) and my thumb, has hindered my creativity. But I can now sit with both cheeks flat, he he he, and my brace is off my hand!! Yay..Most important news first...Collin has once again won Conference for the mile and 800M run. I love watching him RUN! He thinks it must be the hair?!? Possible, I suppose. CONGRATULATIONS 7th grade boys for the team conference win also. All that hard work pays off!
