Mini Album Monday...Episode 1

Good Evening All,

Welcome to the first episode of Mini Album Monday.  I love mini albums and they are another favorite next to party favors.  I am all about capturing those Kodak moments and putting them paper.  I'm always behind so I always have something to remember.

This week, I finished my first Kathy Orta (of Paper Phenomenon) Foto Folio.  This came with a lot of bumps and bruises but I liked my condensed version and my sister, LOVED IT, when she got it in her hands yesterday.

Enjoy the video!  If you have any questions, ask away.  Thanks for stopping by!

Mother's Day Celebration

Good Afternoon Everyone,

You have seen me write this before BUT I just love favors.  I love an event where I walk away with a little reminder of what I experienced.  Each year, at church, we have a Mother/Daughter Prayer Breakfast.  This year, I wanted to make something special to encourage the ladies on their daily journey.  It came down to 2 choices and the decision was decided based on the fact that this favor could double as the program.  It was a lot of work, but I enjoyed it.  The bags were used as door prizes.

Quotes are from the Silhouette Store

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a GREAT week!

Happy Teacher Appreciation Week!!!

Good Morning Family, Friends, Followers & Fellow Crafters,

This week has been designated as teacher appreciation week!  Our hard working teachers deserve more than a round of applause and standing ovation.  They have a touch job managing 30 personalities on a daily basis, while trying to teach the curriculum.  I look forward to coming up with something special each year.

Hope You're Feeling Better

Good Morning Family, Friends, Followers and Fellow Crafters,

My sinuses had me under last week.  I've been miserable in between still trying to maintain my normal duties. I took to my idea catalog and came across a get well card.  I heard so many 'get well' thoughts that I had to make these cute cards.

The box is a file purchased from the Silhouette Store.  It took me 45 minutes to reconstruct it so it wasn't sticking too far off the card.  I love how they turned out.

Thanks for stopping by!

EMPIRE Takeover Challenge

Good Evening Family, Friends, Followers and Fellow Crafters,

I am having fun over at Scraps of Color.  So many of us were glued to our TVs watching Empire, week after week.  The talented Robert Jackson, decided it didn't have to end.  Each week, we receive a character from the show, if we completed the previous week.  Here are my first 3 entries.

Challenge #1 Anika - Red lips a must and card should be elegant with some pearls or diamonds.

Challenge #2  Andre - Must use a die cut and use an inspirational or encouraging sentiment on the front of the project.

Challenge #3 Hakeem - Must have some gold and some  form of a music note rather a die cut or patterned paper.

Thanks for stopping by and have a GREAT week!

Personalized Onesis & Tees

Good Morning Family, Friends, Followers and Fellow Crafters,

It's been almost a month since my last post.  I am trying to get better.  Last week I did something I haven't done since October...  complete a layout for my daughter's school album.  It felt so good.  In between that, I received a call from friend for a cancer tshirt.  Because I love her and her sister to pieces, I stopped what I was doing to help the family start this journey and win the fight!!!

Shirt was inspired by Pinterest browsing.

My Bishop ended one of his messages with this thought.  Instantly, I knew it needed a tshirt.

Have a GREAT week ALL!!  I"ll be back in a few days to share a video of a paperbag album I made.

Single Tube Candy Holders

Happy Wednesday Family, Friends, Fellow Crafters & Followers,

Valentine's Day is here.  This is my last time making something for the kids' classmates.  Why?  My youngest is off to middle school in the fall and class parties seem to come to a halt during that time.  I absolutely love making things for class parties, so if you need some help with your little ones, call me. LOL!!!

I found the template from Lisa Somerville.  As I began making these, a friend asked about party favors for her daughter's baby shower.  I thought I could adapt these tubes for her Cat in the Hat theme and tadaaaaaa......

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a GREAT week!

Thank You Cards

Good Afternoon Family, Friends, Followers and Fellow Crafters,

I can not have enough thank you cards.  I'm working on stockpiling them.  One look I love is that of panels.  Whether they are matted or not, I just like the look of them.  I also decided to break out a stamp set I've had for a while but never used.  Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to look.

Have a GREAT week!!

Waterfall Folios

Happy New Year Family, Friends, Followers & Fellow Crafters,

Those of you who know me, know I LOVE mini albums.  I've made plenty of them but in 2015, I'm looking forward to new ways to help you showcase those pictures.  Folios are the answer.  When I first saw one, it reminded me of the wallet inserts from back in the day where you could flip your wrist and out rolled15 pictures.  LOL!!  Yep, just what I need.

My daughter just turned 13 last week and I decided to dig up her annual pictures from each year to showcase.  Folios can be used for any celebration.

Enjoy and thanks for stopping by!!


Waterfall Folio - Birthday Celebration
This design was inspired by last week's sketch on Mojo Monday.  This blog is my go to for card inspiration.  Although the sketch has the ribbon tied in the front, I needed this one in the back for closure.
Have a GREAT week!!!! Stay tuned, I've already started another mini album.  It's a flip on something you've already seen.
