Check out my ETSY store for new photos of the kits offered. I have also added some additional items to the Be Mine kit as well as the Cupcake kit. More kits to come this week-end!

Can't wait to have a girls day tomorrow, we are going to Alton, IL to see the Eagles on the Mississippi River and then to a tea house for lunch. The temp will be in the 40's which is perfect for this time of year. I'll be sure to bring my camera.

Have a wonderful Week-end everyone!!!

This is a kit that I will be adding to my Etsy site. I'll have 2 of them available and they are jammed packed with goodies. There is 50 sheets of designer paper and 8 sheets of solid cardstock. There is Prima ribbons and flowers, along with tags and envelopes, bling and much more to create a beautiful Mini. I've included several vintage items such as ledger paper, and a music sheet from the early 1900's along with a vintage BINGO card. Please watch for my video coming shortly. There is so much included that you could create more than one mini. Thank you!
This is a box that I made at a class tha twas taught by Denise Lombardozi. I loved this idea and I think that I will make another one using the Paris boxes from Michaels. Thanks for watching!

I visited the local thrift store and found a lot of neat things. Thanks for watching!

I had so many idea books started and no sense or organization that I finally took apart all of the books and made new ones with a little more order. I divided the books up into; layouts, cards, techniques, etc. I find I use them a lot more now. Hope this helps some people with how to store all of their idea pages. :-) Thanks for watching!

Calendar Wall Hanging

I made this wall hanging calendar for my office. I loved looking at a personalized calendar with pictures of my family throughout the year. This was a Pinecone Press kit that I added to.

This is an Album that took 1 year to complete, I can't believe that I actually completed it! I tried to start another one but did not get it started. My year really begins in August when the kids go back to school, so I started it in August.

The idea came from a class that I attended with Danielle Johnson with Creative Imaginations. Thanks for watching!!

This is a little mini that I made a couple of years ago out of Starbucks coffee sleeves. I loved the patterns on the sleeves with the snow flakes and thought that it would be perfect to make a mini about our day sledding. I am going to have to drink some more coffee and make another one using some of the new techniques out there. Thanks for watching!

Valentine Mail Box Mini

I made this Valentine mail box for my Daughter Abby to send to her at college. I purchased the mailbox in the dollar bins at Target and covered it with papers from the DCWV Be Mine collection. This paper collection is just beautiful with all of the glittered designs. The mini book was made out of pink paper bags which I cut slightly and rounded the corners. I used the bottom fold of the bag to create a pocket on every other page. Happy Valentine’s Day

I just wanted to share my mini storage bag. It holds a ton of items and actually came from Bass Pro Shop. It’s a fishing tackle bag. Both sides hold several zip lock bags which are very durable. I use it to hold all of those little items, embellishments, charms, etc. that I have all in one place. It is very easy to carry around to crops or set open on your table. I believe that it cost about $25.00 which is a great deal compared to other storage systems out there. Thanks for watching!

I made this mini out of name badge protectors from the office store. I like that each page is protected and I can carry it around in my purse and not worry about it falling apart. Thanks for watching!

Cupcake Mini's for my Nieces

I made three of these albums for my nieces Birthdays. My goal is to make a mini book instead of a card for all them throughout the year. The chipboard album is from Michaels dollar bins. Thanks for watching!
