I received this email on the first of the year:

Hi Renee,

I am with Paper and Pixels magazine - -

I was searching the web and came across your gorgeous crafts and was so imprssed. I lie to find individuals who would like to share their crafts with us and our readers.

If you have interest in workig with me on an article about you for the February edition, please let me know as on as you can.

I would love it if you could design a small project never before seen for us with directions on how to make it an I will write an article around that.

More info, just give me a shout!

Thanks so much,


Anyways, here is the project and you can go HERE to Paper and Pixels to view it on there for the tutorial on making this album. I am so pleased with how it turned out and i am so shocked to be asked to do this for their magazine. Thanks so much Laura for allowing me this apportunity , the feature is fabulous and you made me look like i knew what i was doing! lol.

A Card and a Notebook Folder

I made this cute card for a dear friend. I love the house mouse image. So comforting and loving. Colored with colored pencils and OMS. I used some fun flox on the buds of the flowers. A little clear embossing powder on their noses and the mouses tail and feet, and the bunnies belly button! just for fun.
The notebook holder is made out of a file folder I covered with some of my new papers...Making Memories Nior. I love love love this paper, so much fun and how handy is the ledger with numbers there on the inside???? love it. I cut out a circle of the paper hand sewed 2 buttons on the center to lift up the main larger button so that i could use the seam binding ribbon as a tie! How fun! Im excited to make a few more!
Thanks for stopping by. In a few days i will have a fun exciting announcement with a new project. Check back the 15th!!! (but stop back every day too, i plan on adding more things between now and then!!!)

3 Bugs File Folders

Just a quick post of 3 Bugs File folders i made today. You undo the left wire off the knob and open it up to a place to put something, a card, a picture what ever you want. I have one more to make and these are already sold! I am going to make some like these with note pads in them! so much fun.
I made the Bugs out of wooden Button Plugs covered with paper and I drilled 2 holes in the ends for the wire to hold it and the antennas. The bee i added fun flocks on the yellow to give him a bit of fuzz and fun! I also used vellum for their wings added stickles for some shine.
