Mini Album Madness

Happy Monday All,

For those of you who know me, you know I love scrapbooks/mini albums and thanks to Kathy King over at Paper Phenomenon, I can't get enough of them.  She has given crafters a whole new outlook on creating albums.  I purchased the tutorial (HERE) from her (which are on sale right now) and away I crafted.  This album is called the Picture Perfect Portrait Album (vol. 1).  I'm currently working on the Landscape version, so it may be on display next week.  Thanks for stopping by!

First Album I used:
CraftSmith 12x12 Flower Market Paper Stack
Recollections 65lb Black Cardstock

2nd Album I used:
12x12 DCWV Blue Citrus Paper Pack
Recollections 65lb Black Cardstock

Good Morning Followers, Family, Friends and Fellow Crafters,

I have been busily cooking birthday cards, in the Cafe.  I received a request for 10 birthday cards, so I though I take that opportunity to build up my supply. 

Have a GREAT week and THANKS for stopping by.

LATE EDITION - Mini Album Monday

Good Morning All & Happy Holidays to Everyone!!!!

I've been so busy that I haven't been posting.  I've completed a few mini album, Christmas cards, and some birthday cards.  This past July/Aug., I had the pleasure of spending a few days in Jamaica with my sister.  We are attempted to rekindle our biannual girls trip. This mini album is the first one I completed with the actual photos!  I'm stoked.  The album is called Mr. Benjamin and can be purchased from Kathy King over at Paper Phenomenon.

Here are a few pics of the album:

Baby Under Construction

Good Evening Family, Friends, Followers and Fellow Crafters,

I had some fun doing a Construction themed baby shower.  Some of these idea are not my original idea, but what mom-to-be found and asked me to recreate. It was too cute and I hope I made her shower a success.

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a GREAT week!

It's Purge Time!!!

Good Morning Family, Friends, Followers and Fellow Crafters,

When 2016 started, I proclaimed that I would purge and clean the Cafe, by the end of the year.  I have so many things I thought I needed, thought I would use, or just purchased because it was the "it" thing to have in that moment.  I went through several pieces of furniture and room arrangements.  As of today, I think I'm on my way.  I caved and got the Ikea Kallax system to convert to a desk, as shown on the Ikea Hacks website.  I wanted this for 3 years now and just went for it.  Enough blabbering until I get it all done.

Right now, I want to offer the following used items for sale, to my local (MD/DC/VA) crafters.  The sooner you take it away, the better.  LOL!!

ITEM 1:  30 shelf paper holder.  2 racks are missing (28 paper slots).  $100, OBO

ITEM 2:  Ikea wall cabinets (less than 2 years old).  EXCELLENT condition.  If you know Ikea, than you know that each piece was purchased separately.

Large cabinet: $80 each
Narrow cabinet: $40
Purchase all 3: $185

2 Large cabinets

1 Narrow cabinet.  Shelf never opened and can be purchased for an additional $5.00

Here is how I had them on the wall:

ITEM 3:  Ikea Malm Desk with pull out panel.   Asking price $60.  This desk does have a craft scar.  You will also need to purchase screws to connect the pull out panel.  panel rail included.
Size: 59 1/2 x 25 5/8 "

Craft scar on the corner

ITEM 4:  Jetmax Cubes $5 each.  1 with glass door, 1 paper slot, 2 4 drawers cubes (white replacement handles will be given) and 1 cube with 2 paper slots and 2 drawers.

Some of the cubes may have 3 small holes in them from a time with they were attached to the tabletops.

ITEM 5:  Item display rack. $50, OBO.  Clamps and hooks included.  This stands approximately 6ft tall.

I think that is everything for now! All the big stuff anyway.  Send me an email and let me know what you'd like to purchase and when you can pick it up.  PAYPAL or CASH ONLY!

Have a GREAT weekend!  Oh wait, I guess I can show you a little progress on the Cafe overhaul.
Ikea Kallax sytem.  I still haven't unwrapped the tabletops.  See all that ribbon in the window?  It has a new home below.

OK, that is all for now!
