Topstitch Tri-fold album

When I saw this tri-fold album I had to try it! I wanted to make something girlie for my bff to use for her girls pictures and the Topstitch paper was perfect! The album was really easy to cut and assemble - the hard part was adding all the embellishments (I'm too obsessive at times!). I just hope she likes it!

Topstitch paper, stamps from Topstitch WOTG, chocolate card stock

What I've been up to...

Well, I guess my creative juices are flowing again. With the pressure of the holidays, craft shows and workshops off me for a little bit, I decided to do some projects I've been saving. This is one of them - Cool, Huh! This bag ideas is lovingly lifted from an amazingly talented woman, Pamela O'Connor - you have to check out her blog! She didn't have many instructions on the blog, because the info was no longer available, but I went with what she had and...well, Voila!

It holds my book, wallet, sunglasses, keys and afternoon snack quite well!

I used: (NEW) Vernada papers, Posterboard Alpha, stamps from "Felicity" paper pack, bag handles from Jo***, self-laminating sheets from Wal****.

3 x 3 Card Box

I thought you all would like to see the 3 x 3 card box I made for my sister for her birthday last month. It's going off into the mail today (I am really slow at getting to the post office!).

You Rock card and calendar

The new "You Rock" paper pack from CTMH is soooo cool! The best part is, you can use it for a girl or boy. The coaster calendar I made for my rockin' neice and the card was for a boy in my daughters class - it held a gift card perfect! We plan on using them to make Valentines for her class too! I used liquid glass on the guitar, you rock and the 365 to make them pop!

Back to life...

Well, the snow day yesterday was nice, but its even better to be back to normal. I was hoping to do tons of creatin' over the break, but unfortunately the best laid plans...yadda yadda. I did sit down at my newly cleaned work area yesterday and played with some stamp sets I have yet to crack open...
Date book used: (D1372) Grown with Love, (D1285) Life's a Jungle, Celebrate
Valentine card used: (D1406) True Friends (SOM), Grown with love
Cupcake box used: Topstitch Paper
Hope you enjoy...not thrilled with how the date book turned out. The cupcake box is a pre-made box from a local craft store with layered paper flowers and gathered ribbon. I love the new Topstitch paper and the Grown with Love stamp set!

Why we stayed home today...

We decided that since our road looked like this (pic 1) and it took over an hour to shovel the driveway (pic 2 - Devin's working other shovel), and the "beast" is covered in snow...we should just stay home. Oh, how lovely is the snow!
