Number 8 Card and Extras :o)


Today I have to share what you can make out of one sheet of 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of cardstock. I recently started making some cards, I call them Number 8 size, that fit in a standard mailing envelope. Well... instead of just keeping the rest of what I cut as scraps, I made two more projects out of it. Here is what I came up with...

And here is the video showing a closer look...

I hope you all have a fantastic week :o)

Whooo's Turning One!

Hey there!

I am posting a birthday card I made for my baby brother Chance. He turned the big ONE today :o) He is just too cute and I get to be the one to take care of him for daycare :o) Really good little guy! His party is going to be owl themed so naturally I made him an owl card, and he wobbles!!!! Well, the owl does :o)

This is Chance...

And this is his birthday card...

The inside...

And the wobble action!

Hope you are all doing well :o)

Minnie Mouse

Hey all!

Today I have another altered composition notebook I turned into a journal for a special girl. My son Maverick has started dating :o) His girlfriend's name is Maiah and they have known each other for the last three years. She moved out of state at the end of their Sophomore year and stayed in touch. They will both be Seniors this school year and the plan is that she is moving back after she finishes school. I wish them the best for their relationship and friendship. Distance makes the heart grow fonder, right? Oh, to be young again :o)

Here is her journal... 

 I used the Mickey Font cartridge for her name and Minnie, the paper came from a Paper Studio stack called Uptown Flair. The mat for Minnie is a Nestabilities die Labels 25.

I also attached a ribbon with a letter bead (M) 
on the end for a place marker

I hope you all have a wonderful week :o)

Hi everyone!

I know I have been missing for a while but I am slowly getting back in to my crafting. I have been dealing with a medical issue with a family member for the last 6, almost 7, weeks. Still have a long way to go so my posts are kind of weak lately. Thank you to all of those that have said prayers for my family! Please keep them coming as we are going to battle for a while.

On a good note... Here are a few things I have been working on :o)

Disney Mini Albums!

We took our Disney World trip in June and I wanted to make a few albums. I have yet to get mine done :o) This first one is Caleb's Pocket Paper Bag Album and it holds 30 photos...

This next one is one I made for my mom that I designed myself and it holds 60 photos...

Hope you all like them! They were tons of fun to make :o)
