Mini Album

My very first toilet paper mini album...now I have seen them all over the net and decided I would give it a try! I watched a couple video tutorials, haha there are tons of then and each one is just a bit different...so I picked a couple of my favorite things and just combined them to make this cute mini!




 When I was searching tutorials I saw so many different ways to bind a mini...I wasn't sure which way would look better. I loved the idea of adding tabs on the end it gives it a nice finished look and seemed to help keep the rolls flat ( I just punched hols in the end and tied them with twin which just happen to match my album perfectly!)
 I used some Tim Holtz Idea-ology Wallflower papers  its the first time I've used his papers....the whole album only used 1 1/2 sheets of 12x12 paper (from the back of the pack they were a 6x6 design)
 each tube /page has a tag that pulls out the end and every other page has a double tag/matte that also pulls out,I used those as extra pages...half goes in the tube and the other half folds over
 the album has minimal embellishments since I really wasn't sure what I was going to do with it just yet or who I was giving it to yet...I figure who ever gets it will want to be able to customize it for themselves.

 a few velum stickers and lace trimmings make it easy to match other embellishments ...

thank you so much for taking the time to check out my latest project!

Funky Birthday card

Good evening crafters....now don't laugh but I have been working on the challenge over at A2Z Scraplets and this month I was determined I was making a card LOL haha it was easier said then done for some reason...I should have just done a layout LOL

so the month they decided to do what they call a puzzle challenge, you had to use a piece of A2Z Scraplets chippy and

 all of the elements in the below.....
Here is how I used the elements-------> the arrows I added to my sentiment,used a clock in the background along with the chevron/wiggle lines, and there is a cute little heart cut out of the chippy piece!

Now I may not totally love this card but my 21 year old daughter LOVES it and says she will be sending it to one of her friends LOL so I guess its a good thing!

thanks for coming to take a peek!

Create

Good afternoon scrappers.... I thought I would share my latest layout, I used the sketch from Blue Fern Studios and of course some of their fabulous chippy pieces (part of the Miss Tailor set) which just happen to be perfect for some of my daughters pictures....you see she she is very talented..yes yes I am a bit bias LOL what mother isn't.....anyway she has a talent for sewing and costume designing for cosplay...all she has to do is look at something and she can replicate sometimes she will alter a pattern but most times she just makes her own! The picture I decided on was a jacket she created form attack on titan (to be honest I have no clue what that is beside being a manga series LOL) 

So here is the page I created to showcase her work...





 7 Dots Studio-Papers

365 Days

Good evening scrappers, I 'd like to share my latest layout...I used the sketch and journaling theme from Once Upon A Sketch...and the criteria for the black and white challenge over on the Flying Unicorn forum

I decided I would make this about of 1st wedding Anniversary  (which just happened to be yesterday)


 part of the journaling located behind the pictures
Our 1st anniversary, Love,
Brings feelings of delight,
Thoughts of the pleasure that you give me
Every day and every night.

I’m grateful for each day and hour;
I thank the Lord above
For giving me the precious gift:
Of your deep, enduring love.

As our lives go on and on,
One thing is always true:
To the very end, I’ll always wish
For more time, more love with you.





Thank you so much for coming to take a peek!
