All about me My Creations Acrylic Mini Album

I decided to make an album - just about me and my life and things I believe in - usually I scrapbook the kids and family so wanted to do something different. This was the 1st time I had really played with this acrylic album and it was fun. I used the rub ons which showed through 2 pages and lots of ribbon and fun embellishments
I wanted to use my own hand writing in this book which gave it a very different feel. Usually I type everything on the computer as I have such lousy handwriting but this time -I wanted it to be me :O)
I made pockets for the journalling by only sticking down 3 sides of the photo.
This left hand page was fun as I cut out the center of the stickease with a craft knife to make a photo frame. Both of these 2 pages open and the journalling is inside - I used the pewter hinges as lift tags to open the pages.
The tag on the right hand page is actually one of the smaller pages of this album which I cut down to size with a craft knife.
I love this photo of my three children :O)
This time I left the smaller page in place and added a large stickease to it.
So that gives you an insight into me and things that I believe in. Hope you like it :O)

Caribbean Cruise Flip Flap Album

I decided to make this cute album for the consultants from our unit who had earned the cruise along with me. Then I decide to make one for Jeanette and then for the other 4 girls who earned both CTMH trips. So I made 14 of these. It took me a while as you can imagine!
The cruise ship stamp is from a retired set which is quite a few years old but I absolutely love it and can't be parted from it. so is the life preserver on the picture below.
I used the Moon Doggie level 2 paper pack with it's matching stickease - and the matching stamp set C1356 Extreme Happiness.
I absolutely love these flip flap albums - and have so much fun making them. I am working on another one right now - so watch out in the near future to see it :O)

Thanks for everything card

Good morning - this card was inspired by one I had seen made by Aimee Mahan - I loved the way that she stamped the border close together - when I saw it - it reminded me of the paper in Bella. So I made this card using the Bella level 2 paper pack, Smokey plum and Olive inks and lots of sparkles :O) A ribbon bow finished it off perfectly. Hope you like it :O)

March Stamp of the Month cards - A Little Everything

This 1st card features the March SOTM -  I have used it along with one of my favorite sets - B1323 - Just the ticket. The tickets I use on so many of my projects - you will see it on my scrapbook pages, my cruise purse, picture frames - everywhere :O) The SOTM for March - A little Everything - is another versatile set as you can put any image with these words - trains, flowers, frogs, hearts, snowflakes - this is a set which you will use all year long. I also used the Caboodle level 2 paper pack and chocolate and sweet leaf inks.
This little 3x3 tag card uses the stamp set D1402 - Togetherness - another set which you can use along with other sets. I used the Veranda paper pack for this card and Cocoa and Juniper inks.
The other cool thing about this stamp of the month is that it matches the new Cocktail alphabet found on page 84 of the Spring idea book. That floats my boat totally - how cool to be able to personalize you cards - e.g. Thanks for everything Christine, Happy Christmas Donna - & it all matches. Love it. Hope you like it too :O)

Here is a workshop which I am teaching next month. It features the alsorts album, Moon Doggie level 2 paper pack, Dimensional Element Borders, Sparkles and Ribbon. We will also be using C1356 Extreme happiness. My workshop participants also get the cutting guide which they take home with them - that way if they want to create another - they have the dimensions :O)
The left hand page has a 'squash' book on it so add more photo/journalling space.
The right hand page also opens.

Dry Erase Picture Frame

This idea came from another consultant which I absolutely fell in love with. It is a regular picture frame which I added the Notebook level 2 paper and stickease to and added Dimensional Elements which I inked then stamped. Lots of bling with flowers and sparkles added a fun touch and I wrapped the dry erase marker with our black ribbon. A fun project which is easy to make and you can switch out the backgrounds easily to customize to the season. Hope you like it :O)
