2014 Calendar

Welcome back!
Christmas is past and now we look forward to a New Year.  It's time to get a new calendar started.

I watched the below video and decided to make my own calendar with the Artbooking cartridge.  To start, cut 12 sheets of white card stock at 5-3/4" x 6".  Then cut 12 overlays with the real dial button @ 5 1/2" as seen on page 68, using different color card stock.  Now glue the overlays onto the white card stock and you're ready to decorate each month as you prefer.

Supplies used:
CTMH Flip Stand Album, #z1896
Artbooking cartridge, #z1906
Dymo label maker

In the video they say the font style is from the Artiste cartridge, but in fact it is also from the Artbooking cartridge.
Hope you're encouraged to try this great project and if you have any questions, please contact me by email.

Mini Valentine Basket with Bow

Today I have another reason for purchasing the We R Memory Keepers Envelope Punch Board.  I found out you can also make bows and these cute baskets.
To learn how to create these great projects head on over to watch Paula Knall's video @

This is a great project for using your small pieces of DSP scraps.

The bows can be quickly assembled and used to adorn boxes, cards, layouts, etc.

This box was also made with the WRMK punch and then decorated with a mini bow.

For instructions on how to make the basket, Paula has another video @

Enjoy your day and please visit again.

Mini Mitten Album

Happy Friday!
I promised myself that I would use what I have on-hand to make this mini Mitten Album.

I've had this chipboard mitten album for about 2 years which came from the dollar aisle at Michael's.  Underneath the scallop tag a picture can be placed.
I haven't used both the gingerbread man die by Sizzix or the Martha Stewart snow punch in a very long time.
The stickers are just a few from my stash of embellishments. Inside the matchbook you can place pictures.
Here I used red felt swirls and added a small envelope where I can add a few tags.
The designer paper is from the DCWV Christmas Creations stack.  I haven't finished yet, so this is to be continued . . .
Have a blessed weekend.

My Christmas wish is ... I hope I feel better by Christmas Day!

Santa's Hat Wreath

Happy Friday!
We're only 12 days away from celebrating Christmas.  I thought I was done decorating my house for the holidays but then I saw this cute wreath at a craft fair.  I decided to make one for myself.
It was fairly easy and inexpensive to make.  I went to the Dollar Tree store and got all the supplies I needed:
Santa's hat
foam wreath

I had to paint the foam white because it was a dark green.  I think it came out pretty nice.  Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed weekend.

The Twelve Days of Christmas--Part II

Today I want to share the rest of my Twelve Days of Christmas mini album.  This paper line by Graphic 45 is so beautiful that I didn't want to cover it completely with photo mats.  With that in mind I'll just let you view the pretty images.


I enjoyed making this mini album and I hope you liked viewing it.  Thank you for stopping by.

The 12 Days of Christmas Mini Album

Happy Monday!
I was lucky to find this 8" x 8" stack of The Twelve Days of Christmas by Graphic 45.  I used a 7 Gypsies chipboard album and decorated it with this beautiful paper. 
On this page I created a mini flip out for pictures.

This mini pocket can hold a tag or two.
Another flip up for journaling or photos.

These are more pockets for tags.
This is the back of the mini.  I hope you've enjoyed this project so far. I will share more of the pages in a few days.

Christmas Past

Today I'm sharing the gift exchange project I made for yesterday's Christmas Party with my crafty friends.

I love the vintage images that the Christmas Past collection by Graphic 45 has to decorate the tray.

Hope you liked my project and please come back to visit again.
