Mini Album Monday...Foto Folder 1

Good Morning Family, Friends, Followers and Fellow Crafters,

It's been awhile but I am back with another edition of Mini Album Monday.  Today's project is not your typical mini album, but it called a Foto Folder.  The genius behind this project is Kathy King over a Paper Phenomenon.  You can pick up this tutorial and more, on her site.  Click HERE.

It's been a long time since I've been this excited about a project.  I absolutely LOVE this thing and I hope you will too. (Pic  heavy)

I'll be back in a week or 2, with the next installation (Foto Folder 2), of this set.  Thank you for stopping by and have a GREAT week!

June Planner Page Week 4: Whitney Houston

Good Morning Family, Friends, Followers and Fellow Crafters.

This week before the ink. Whitney's debut album (yes I said album) was the first music I purchased with my own money. I was 10. It remains to be my favorite of all her body of work.  Next week I'll be featuring my favorite group of all time.  Anyone want to take a guess at who it is?

Have a GREAT week and thanks for stopping by!

Father's Day 2016

Good Afternoon Family, Friends, Followers and Fellow Crafters,

We had a low key father's day yesterday BUT for the first time ever, I snuck in some time to make hubby some cards.  I feel bad when my family receives a store bought card from me.  I enjoy making cards but I don't always have the time.  I left the kids' card blank on the inside, so they could write their own personalized note.

Thanks for stopping by and have a GREAT week!

I'm All About that Planner Life

Good Morning Family, Friends, Followers & Fellow Crafters,

I thought I posted that I joined the Planner lifestyle... Let me tell you, I was running from this since January but I soon thought this could help me out and look cute.  I've always carried a calendar in my purse, that I bought from Target every year.  Towards the end of last year, I put together a budget binder (8.5 x 11).  I couldn't possibly carry that around BUT I needed a way to combine everything and here comes the Happy Planner.  I think a few of my crafty friends wore me down too.

So, in honor of Black Music Month (June), here are some pages from my planner before the ink.
Week 1:  Prince

Week 2:  Gladys Knight

Week 3:  New Edition

Thank you so much for stopping by.  Have a GREAT weekend!

Happy Teacher Appreciation Week!!

Good Morning Family, Friends, Followers and Fellow Crafters,

Long time no post, eh?  It's been quite challenging managing life.  When I last left off, we were ending basketball season and now we are nearing the end of soccer season.  I love that my children are active and it is something managing all our various commitments.

Oh, here's something new.  I have joined the Planner Lifestyle band wagon.  I tried to fight it and was winning for four months, but alas, I have caved!!  I must admit, I like it.  I just started my calendar this week.  I'll share my first 2 layouts before the ink, next week.

It's TEACHER APPRECIATION WEEK!!! I never want to miss out on an opportunity to bless my children's teachers.  A special shout out to my son's math teacher, Mr. Dudley.  He is AWESOME!!! He's had sooo many personal challenges this school year but he keeps his classes fired up about math!!

Do you know what this Saturday is??  It's NATIONAL SCRAPBOOKING DAY!!!!!!  I'll be crafting from 12pm - 12am, with my crafty sisters.  I am looking forward to it.

Thanks for stopping by and I'll see you real soon!

I've been working on multiplying my card supply.  I need cards on hand at all times. Maybe my family will get a few handmade cards this year, instead of the store bought ones I end up sending.

Next week, Mini Album Monday is back!!!  Have a GREAT week ALL!!!

Altered Spiral Notebook

Good Morning Family, Friends, Followers & Fellow Crafters!!

I have a first for you today.  It is an altered spiral notebook.  This was a requested gift for a Grandmother, who recently turned 91. I had fun with this and I'm pretty sure I'll do more this year.

Mini Album Monday: Cupcake Wars

Good Evening family, friends, followers and fellow crafters,

I'm just barely making a Monday post, huh? Last week, via Facebook, I shared some photos from my daughter's Cupcake Wars party.  There was soooo much planning, prepping and fun, that I didn't get to finish the albums before the party was over.  Below is a small slideshow of the KitchenAid stand mixer mini album. It features puctures from the party and all the recipes made that day.

The shaped mixer is from the Silhouette Store and is by Lori Whitlock.

Enjoy & thanks for stopping by.

Mini Album in a box

I'm very Sorry for the delay on getting this video up.  Between two basketball games last week and being under the weather, it's been a whirlwind. Nevertheless, here is it. Thanks for stopping by.
