Grandma's Brag Book!


I am going to be listing this album tomorrow on Ebay, Its a fun album for a grandma for either a grand daugther or grand son. It was fun to make and i loved the paper. I love polka dots in any color! ha Fun old fashioned looking album.

The cupcake album has got bids on it, it also has lots of watchers! So I hope that I get a bidding war on it! Hey sales have been slow this summer, one needs to "hope"!

Its been hard to get in my craft room with the sales being down, makes it a bit hard to be motivated!! Plus I have a big garden that keeps calling my name, wanting me to pull the weeds from it! ha. I am a lover of weed "monk like"( the tv show dude, not the religious ones..) so you can imagine! ha

Anyways hope to get something else produced for next week. I still have the tin/album sets for sale so if your interested email me at

Here is a recipe album I am listing today! Again , another slow week in sales, why does it have to be summer?????ha Anyways I LOVE LOVE this album, its so fun and cute. I saw a cute cute card on site and I decided since I didnt have a stamp like that, that I would just draw up a cupcake and cut it out of chipboard and paper piece it and put it on the front of the album. I used beads and glitter to make the fancy frosting and spinkles! There are 15 recipe cards and 9 tags and 2 pull out pages. Will be a fun album to fill out! You can click on the link below to enter your bid on ebay! There you can see all the pages as well, as I only put a few of them on here!

Tuesday listing....something a bit different!

Relisted!!!! on etsy!

I have made this album for listing on Tuesday! It is a little different then the other albums I have made. I really really like it alot, its so fabulous, I think it turned out really really well. I was inspired by a idea that I cute out off the back of a package of vintage paper I think it was....anyways just went with some of the "idea" and drew up my own plan and went with it. Its more of a "done" album . There is room for you to put in your own journaling and lots of places to put pictures. I machine stitched throughout the whole album so it is really snazzy! I will be listing it tomorrow night on Ebay. I will come back and put the link to this album off ebay once it lists. ok! Thanks for looking and I have relisted my album tin combos again, I have some interest in them. And Remember that you can ask for a special order from me! I am now taking new orders!

new 12x12 for listing and items for sale....

Relisted on Etsy (under creativepaintpaper)

Here is a new 12 x 12 that I am listing tonight. Sales have been slow on ebay so I have a few things that are still for sale. IF you see them on my blog and they dont say sold if you are interested besure to contact me at and I will be glad to sell them to you. I relisted the green/brown set of albums and the vintage best friends album. The tins and their matching albums have not been relisted and I have them still for sale so if you are interested in those let me know. I will sell the set for $69.99 for the recipe tin/album set. I will sell the address tin/birthday datebook album for $75.99, you can find both of these items in my postings below. I also have the daddys girl 12x12 pages as well and will sell those for $12.99 for the set. Plus shipping on each. Thanks so much!

Something new!

I embossed these leaves on vellum and machine sewn them to the card .
the dragonflies on these cards have been cute out and embossed, and then glued on for a 3d effect.
I have embossed this bear and colored it with colored pencil and put "glitter" in the wings. The wedding/anniversary card also has been embossed on the 'eyelet" and the bottom with the sunflowers.

Well I got an email from Clear Dollar Stamps saying they were looking for Design Team Members! And that you had to make up a few cards and submit them so they could pick out a few new members! Sooooo I have NEVER done anything like this before, both in trying out for a contest OR making cards! So thought I would give it a go ! I got a bit of encouragement from my MENTOR and buddy Vicky K and my fam and went ahead and gave it a go. Here are some that I made in the last few days! What do you think? Should I keep making albums and tins and give up the card business? ha I have always believed that you can do anything you set your mind too. And I have done about everything I have set my mind to too! From any art project to sheetrocking a bathroom...ive done it! So I decided to do the cards, mind not as confident in them as I was in the paper bag albums! ha But I gave it a go!
