Very Sad News!!!

I am going to be away from crafting and posting for a few weeks.

We are dealing with a horrible Mold issue in our home and may soon be moving to a new location. The Landlord for where we reside does not want to abide by the laws to have it repaired correctly and to protect the health of my family and pets we will be seeking other living arrangements.

Wish me Luck everyone!!!

See you soon!

Hope you all enjoy the rest of your day!!!!

Boxed Mini Album

I had so much fun making this beautiful boxed mini with some of my favorite designer papers. I used Graphic 45 Botanical Tea...Love love love this paper!!

The box is constructed from medium weigh chipboard for durability. I also inked all the edges of the papers with Distress Ink (walnut stain) for that aged romantic feel. I used some Wild Orchid Crafts flowers on the lid and Blue Seam binding to make the Bow. I used the Sizzix (Tim Holts) Ornate frames die and heat embossed it in white. I also used a We R Memory Keepers punch for the pocket and flip page borders but the name escapes at the moment. There are magnets used throughout this albums flip ups/outs as well

There is lots of real-estate in this mini and can hold a minimum of 38 photos. Each Pocket Page booklet will hold  4 - 6 x 4 photos.

There are plans to make several of these for my grand-daughters!!

I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend!!

Recipe Box (chipboard)

I have been quite busy with new projects and my day job. Finding the time lately to be crafty has been a real challenge...but I have prevailed!

The first project really has turned out better then I had expected and plan to make more for a few Birthday Presents. It will hold full size (4 x 6) recipe cards or it can be used to hold photos. I am still working on the dividers.  Choosing the Designer paper for this particular box was so cheerful and bright it is sure to look great in any kitchen!!!

It is made with Medium weight chipboard so it has real durability and the easel flip top makes for holding your recipes while cooking a snap when those sticky/floured fingers just do not permit you to touch or hold things while your creativity flows in the Kitchen..HA

I hope you enjoy this lovely project.

Hope you are enjoying this Fabulous Weekend!!!

Hope you visit again soon for more Awesome Creativity!!
