Summer Themed Mini Album

I thought I would post pictures of my Summer Themed Mini Album for a swap I did.  I did my first YouTube video on this album, BUT the pictures are much better than my video:o)  To see the whole album Click on the Link Below.....
I have two new mini albums I just completed, and will be posting those pics real soon. One is a T.P. mini, and the other is a Paper Bag mini.

I make a lot of mini scrapbook albums, and one of my favorites to make is the Upcycled T.P. mini album (toilet paper).  People think you can't get many pictures in them, but on the contrary you can get a lot.  They are really cute.
The one below is one I made for myself.  It's a trip we took with our grand kids last summer to San Diego.
These aren't all of the pages, but I just want to show you how you really can gets lots of cute and adorable small pictures in these albums.

 Here are two pages and one insert. By using punches of various
shapes and sizes, you can get some great shots on your pages.

 Here are two more inserts or photo mats with plenty of pictures
on them. I added tags on the pages for journaling.

I love this page of my grand daughter Niki (left). I used a big
scallop punch and a square punch for these two pics. On the
opposite page, I used circle punches in two sizes to cut out
Abby's close ups.
So these are just a few
of the pages in my little T.P. mini album.

My Favorite Season

My favorite time of year is just around the corner.  I LOVE Fall. The crispness in the air, the colors of the season, and the anticipation of the coming Holiday's.
AND....... I get to start baking, once it cools off.
So I altered a, 3-3/4 " X 6-1/8" glassine bag. As you can see it's a Halloween theme.  I just absolutely love working with these colors and designs.
I papered just the front of the bag, popped up some cute ghosts and a butterfly.  Embellished with  ribbon, paper roses from IAR and the gorgeous shabby, orange rose is one of my favorites. I used black and red Stickles, fussy cut a dangling spider, and last but not least I had some awesome fabric in my stash, and cut out the web and tied a bow with it. I will probably make more and fill them with candy for my grand kids.

My First YouTube Video

I was not going to embed this video, but what the heck.  It's my first, and it's not a good one. HOWEVER, I promise to get better, louder, and talk more:o)

This was a Mini Album swap I did for a Lil Scrap of Heaven.  The theme was Summer Time.  I used an adorable paper by jillibean soup and, of course lots of other goodies.

Happy Memorial Day

Made some more stick pins and covers.  I especially love this large one.  It is a 6" stick pin.  I used a glass crystal, and a lamp worked bead, with gold plated findings and chain.

Here are a couple more I made using Swarovski crystals, glass beads, an adorable Teapot glass bead, with gold and silver plated findings.  I love how the cover turned out with the flower and butterfly. These are 3" pins.
