My Vintage Camera and Mini Sneak Peak

This project has been sitting in my head for 6 months now ... and I finally did something about it!  It turned out better than I hoped.  I used some specialy papers from JoAnns (looks like leather), and BoBunny "Mamma Razzi" paper line for the album.  Also, it is covered, inside and out, with Tim Holtz Alterations metal gadgets.  I haven't figured out the closure for the back of the camera yet, but the mini is stored in the back. 

Inside, I used the 'polaroid' and 'film strip' ideas to create the layout of the mini.  I wanted to make a mini to tell my amazing photography journey these last 4 years.  Still need to write the tutorial for these last two projects (camera and school house).  Note: my website is coming along nicely and I am ever increasingly excited for it to start!

School House Sneak Peak

This is a project I cooked up for 'back to school' time.  I used the O'Scraps "School" paper and embellishments, with a few of my own touches :) The mini goes inside the school for safe keeping.  It turned out sooo cute, I had to share a peak.

Let's Get Together

Welcome all, to the preview of the August Ladies Night at JoAnn's class.  This is the album we will be making and I have been thrilled to see so many people picking it up and looking through the album.  The class is August 15, 2013 from 6-9 pm.  Sign up at JoAnn's to save your spot! 

During the class I will be teaching how to assemble the cover, the binding system, and the specifics for each page.  I will also show you a few ways to make these darling flowers that really set this album apart!

This split page assembly is a fun way to break up the routine traditional pages.


This is the album I will be making during the class ... made from the same mat stack as the first one, above.  So be sure to join me for a night of creativity and fun!

July Ladies Night Project

I'm back again with a fun project made from paper bags.  Join me for Ladies Night at JoAnn's in Cedar City, Utah. This month I will be showing you how to make five differnt page styles from paper bags and a fun, easy way to bind them.  Once learned, you can make albums mixing and matching these page styles.  Sign up at JoAnn's. 
July 25th from 6-9 pm

Make one with patriotic paper to share your favorite events you've made this past month.

Or ... make a quick brag book for grandma and grandpa.

This is so versitle it would also be a darling Halloween, Christmas, or any other fun holiday.

See you there!  July 25th from 6-9pm
