There will be places for pictures , stories and even favorite recipes in the album. I will make dividers in the tin for keepsakes, like cute drawings from your children, place for more recipes, photos, etc. I am in LOVE with this cherry paper...i find it so fun! I need to finish it with Tags etc and dividers in the tin and it will be done. The tin is completely covered with paper inside and out! (even the bottom!)

Birthday Cards.....

I got all my paper cut for a special order, and then I cut some paper for a tin, that im going to be working on, with a matching album. So then I figured i better get moving on a couple birthday cards! I have a TON of birthdays in January in my family...3 of which are in my own family! Hubby, oldest son, Wesley, who will be 19 and my baby girl who will turn 6!!!! She is getting so big! But I also have a dear friend whom i grew up with, her birthday and one if these is hers. There is also my mother in law..hers is the rose card. Both cards I inked and then embossed . The rose card I colored with water color pencils, then embossed the edges of the with sparkley embossing powder to give it a little shine! I hope that the cards will go over well the recipients!

Sisters and Treasure Time Albums


Well I couldnt resist to use the jester paper again! I love it!!! I made this vintage album and wanted to add a little bit of fun with that paper!

I also made this cute pink and black sisters album and it is already spoken for! So I wont be listing that on sunday.

I will be listing the TIME album though , but if anyone wants it let me know before Sunday ! OK!

I spent the day finishing up the sisters album and then I decided to organize my craft room! I have a small closet it in there I have my file cabinate in there and then had some boxes in there with some craft books etc and containers with craft things for the kids and school stuff. (I home school my kids...) SO i took everything out of the closet , except the file cabinate and organized things all up and will buy a 3 drawer storage unit and put in there to put the school and craft things in. Then there will be a little room for Miss B (my daughter bailee...) to throw in a bean bag and hang out in there, she loves that closet for some reason. Its under our stairs so its shaped like a wedge...So made room for her to have a little spot! It feels so good to have everything organized. I want to paint and get some material for curtains and a skirt on my table. All in time. But now that things are pretty much organized I feel like i can really relax and get things done in there!

Thanks for stopping by! Stay tuned for more albums!

Here are a few cards i made tonight. I HAD to try out my stamps that I received from a sweet freind this past week. I have been so anxious to try them out! The stamps she sent were the coffee cup and then the back ground stamp of "coffee words" Then to top it all scented embossing power!!!! OH YES! got to love that!!! So i had to give them a try and these are what i came up with. I have had a headache all day but that didnt stop me from trying! If you notice they are made from scraps from the chef album posted before this! I love this paper and i have ordered a bit more of it to play around with!
Anyways, thanks Melinda!!

Bon Appetit! Album


Well I WAS going to list this tomorrow...but again, its spoken for! ha I absolutely love this paper...its so ME! I received a "care package" from a sweet friend and in it was some "chef" kitchen towels...that is where i got the idea for this album! I was trying to think of what paper i would use with him and i had to use this paper left over from the Mike and Misty album! I LOVE THIS PAPER>>>oh i already said that! ha Anyways i drew up the chef and then cut it out of card stock of appropriate paper, then i chalked the edges giving him debth and then went over with maker! It was fun! I really enjoying doing that now...and will probably do more in the future! I see a lady on ebay who will get $1500 for a 2 page layout scrapbook page with her own cut out "tear bears' and girls, and boys, dogs etc...she is good. Anyways I hope to some day be like that!!!!! ha DREAM ON!
