Match Box Mini


I had a blast with this one, so delicate and tiny  with littlest of features that brought back some of my greatest childhood memories. Sorry the pics are a bit blurry, didnt have the camera on its stand!


I have another in the making and hope to perfect some of the little embellishments....check back soon to see how that progresses.


Have a great day Ya'll!!

Trifold Shutter Card

WOW, now this was a true challenge for me and I am still not sure I am totally liking it yet!

Some very Pretty papers and a few die cuts later..hhhmmm, the jury is still out on this one. I also punches some little flowers and added some glitter glue here and there to give it some sparkle.

Let me know what ya'll think!!!






Happy Saturday Everyone.

My Springtime Mini (A work in Progress)

This Mini Measures 5 3/4 inches tall by 4 1/2 inches wide with a 1 3/4 inch spine. The Front Cover,  Back cover and spine are all Med Weight Chipboard covered with craft cardstock. The Interior pages are all 65 lbs weigh craft cardstock layered in springtime colored designer papers. I inked all of the page edges  and DSP with Ranger "Peacock Feathers" Distress.  Ink There are only 10 pages (back and front)  but lots of flip pages and pockets for those favorite photos or journal notes.

The Front Cover has a sweet little group of Springs Rose Buds and a few sprigs of tiny buds in bloom with a pretty Butterfly embellished with some pink Gems. I hung a sweet little praying angel from the bow attached to the spine as well.

I am still working on embellishing the pages so it is still a work in progress but will post more photos later after it is finished.

I hope you Enjoy this spring bitty mini!!










Have a Blessed Weekend.

One more post and this is a sneak peek because I have made this for a very special friend of mine so it will be going out in the mail over the next day or so!

This Mini Album Measures 6 1/4 x 5 1/2 with a 2 1/2 inch spine so it has plenty of rooms for all those wonderful family photos.

It has all her favorite colors of orange, yellows, pinks....but has all the spring colors as well. It also has all the same page designs with lots of pockets, flaps and photos mats. I also used some new dies cuts for this album to add some special little touches throughout.

I hope you all have a Wonderful Week!!

Well, my day job has kept me rather busy the past few weeks so I have not had much time for Crafting but I did manage to squeeze in a few projects. I loved making this next mini.

It measures 6 1/4 x 4 1/2 and has all the same page designs but loved these design papers on the black card stock background. Rich earthy colors....one of my favorites. It has a magnetic closure with a ribbon band so it has room to expand with journal notes and photos. The key and Lock are so whimsical on the Cover, will be using that again many more projects.

This cute little Mini also has some dyed ribbons and a few charms added to the binding! The Binding and cover are made from medium weight chipboard for durability.

I do hope you enjoy this Cutey as much as I had making it!!!
