Another mini album I made using a tutorial by JustaFewDesigns. The album uses the beautiful Kaisercraft's "Misty Mountain" paper collection. Album measures 5" x 6¾ . There is over 20 spots for your photos/journaling, includes pockets that you can place memorabilia. The front cover has three handmade flowers and a pretty crystal flourish and a pretty ribbon closure.
Here are the inside pages of the album.

Rose Quartz Mini Album

I just finished another mini album that I used Prima's "Rose Quartz" paper collection for it. For this mini album I used a tutorial on you tube by JustaFewDesigns that you can find here:
The album measures 5" x 6¾", there are just over 25 spots for photos and/or journaling and pockets for memorabilia. For the front cover I added some Prima flowers on the top left corner and a pearl flourish from my stash.
 Here are some photo's of the inside of this mini album.







Thank you for stopping by and I'd love to hear your comments!

Summer Visits

I don't get to see my daughter and son-in-law often as they are busy going to university and working, so I was very happy that they stopped by for a visit on their way to a friends wedding last month. Mitch is also like me that he hates having his picture taken so it was great to get this photo of the two of them.

I used Bo Bunny's "Serendipity" paper collection for this layout. I used the "Feathers" paper for my background page. I then took other papers from the collection and tore different sizes to layer under the photo. I also fussy cut one of the bird nests from the paper to add to the layout. I added other embellishments from my stash. Of course I can't do a layout without flowers from Prima and these ones are just so pretty. I'd love to hear your comments on this layout and thanks for stopping by!

Graduation Time

Well it's that time of year again, all the teens are getting ready for their graduation from high school and embarking on the next leg of their journey. My friend has a niece graduating this month and asked if I could make her a card for her niece. I really like the nice straight lines that black and white papers can give you on a card so I thought they would be perfect for a grad card.

My card base was cut at 4¾" x 6¾" and for the first layer I used black card stock cut the same size. For my next layer I used a black & white patterned paper cut at 4½" x 6½". I used a piece of white paper that had some black swirls through it cut at 4¼" x 6¼". I just happened to find a package of black, white and silver flowers in my stash (that I found at a second hand store for 50¢ -score!). I took the flowers and layered them to make three flowers with some pretty centers which I used on the top right corner of the card. I then used one of my die cuts to cut the "Congrats" for the card then added the year. I printed out the head and cap silhouette, which I sell in my graduation digital scrap kit here: Graduation Digital Kit. I'm quite happy how it turned out, here's the finished card.

Birthday Card

I've come to the conclusion that I need to get a job working for Kaisercraft. I absolutely love all of their paper collections and can't wait for the next collection to be released. I made this card for my sister for her Birthday, it's a simple card but with these papers from Kaisercrafts "Fairy Garden" collection it's so pretty!

I've made the card at 4¾" x 6¾". For my first layer I used some pink card stock which I distressed. My next layer I used the "Wishes" paper from the collection cut at 4½" x 6½" which I also distressed. I then cut a piece of pink card stock cut at approximately 3½" x 6½" and I used one of my Martha Stewart punches on both sides of the 6½" side and centered it down the middle of the card. I then used the green side of the "Fluttering" paper from the collection and cut it about a half inch narrower and used the same punch on that piece and centered it over the pink card stock. I had the pretty picture of the roses that I found on the internet printed out as I thought it would be great to use on a card. As luck would have it it went perfectly with these papers. I matted it with a pale green card stock and a pink card stock and added that to the card as shown. I then  did some fussy cutting of the flowers from the "Magical" paper and popped them up with foam pop dots and added them to the two corners of the roses paper as shown. I printed out the sentiment on my computer and added that to the card and called it done. I was really happy at how it turned out. Thanks for stopping by and I'd love to hear your comments!

Father's Day

I've made another  Father's Day cards to share with you. This one is just a different take on one of my previous cards. Instead of adding gears to this card I just wrapped the card with some string on the left side. A very simple card but one that I think is perfect for this masculine day. TFL!

Father's Day cards

A few more Father's Day cards I made. This first one using Couture Creations "Sea Breeze" paper collection is 4¾"x6¾". I distressed and inked all of the papers and added some foam pop dots to the anchor and the shell. I also added a few junkyard findings from Prima.
I used the Couture Creations "Sea Breeze" paper collection again on this card which is 4¼"x5½". I did some fussy cutting of the lighthouse from the papers which I popped up with foam pop dots. I added a couple of die cut anchors to the card.
This next card is another 4¼"x5½" one. I ran the silver paper through one of my Cuttlebug embossing folders to give it that metal look. I used one of my stamps of a motorcycle and added a couple of small gears to the card.

New Cards

A quick post to show off a few new cards I've made. This first card I made using Kaisercraft's "Golden Grove" paper collection. This is the first time I've actually made an apology card. I figured this would be a good card for a man to have in his stash to use at appropriate time, lol.
This next card was made for Father's Day using Couture Creations "Sea Breeze" paper collection. Lots of layering and used some foam pop dots to pop up the "Sea Breeze" saying.
This Father's Day card was made using left over papers in my stash and Die-namites "Cattails" die.

All Occasion Cards

These two cards can basically be used for any occasion. The cards measure 4¾" x 6¾" and I have distressed all of the papers for both cards. For this first card I have used Kaisercrafts "Fairy Garden" paper collection. My first layer I used some pink card stock cut at 4¾" x 6¾". On my next layer I used the polka dot side of the "Magical" paper from this collection cut at 4½" x 6½". For the top layer I used the "Magical" paper cut at 4¼" x 6¼". I cut the "Never Stop Dreaming"tag from the back of the "Wishes" paper from the collection and matted it with some mint green card stock. I fussy cut some of the flowers from the "Moonstone" paper and added that to the bottom right of the card. I then added a double string bow to the top left of the card along with some Prima flowers. To finish the card off I added some liquid pearls to the top right corner.
For this next card I used Graphic 45's "Floral Shoppe" paper collection. For the bottom layer of the card I used some mint green card stock cut at 4¾" x 6¾". My next layer I used the pink side of the "Verdant Blossoms" paper cut at 4½" x 6½". The top layer I used Graphic 45's "Sunlit Medley" paper cut at 4¼" x 6¼". Before I glued down the second and top layer to the base layer I glued them together but on the right side of each layer I taped them down only a third down from the top and a third up from the bottom. I did this so I could tear the papers and roll the two layers back as shown. I added a small yellow Petaloo flower into where the papers were torn. I also added three of the same flowers to the bottom right corner of the card. I cut the "Make Your Own Magic" tag from the Kaisercraft "Fairy Garden Wishes" paper and matted it with the pink "Verdant Blossoms" Graphic 45 paper. For the top left corner I added some flowers that I fussy cut from the Kaisercraft "Fairy Garden Moonstone" paper and popped them up with foam pop dots. To finish the card off I added some liquid pearls to the top right corner. 
I was very happy with how the both cards turned out. I'd love to hear your comments!

Mothers Day Cards

Happy Belated Mother's Day to all of the Mom's out there! I'm a little slow at getting these cards posted on my blog.  My card base for these is 4¾" x 6¾" (cut at 9½" x 6¾" & folded in half) this way, since they can tend to get a bit bulky, they should still fit into a 5¼" x 7¼" envelope. I used Kaisercrafts "Fairy Garden" paper collection for this card.  For this first card I cut a piece of mint green card stock measuring 4¾" x 6¾" for my card base. I distressed all of the papers on this card. For  my next layer I used the "Wishes" paper from the collection which I cut at 4½" x 6½" and the top layer I used the "Magical" paper from the collection cut at 4¼" x 6¼". I added Prima flowers and ribbon from my stash and cut out a small banner sentiment on my computer.
For this "Best Mom Ever" card I also used the Kaisercraft "Fairy Garden" paper collection. I used some pink card stock cut at 4¾" x 6¾" for my base layer. I also distressed all papers for this card. My next layer I used a mint green card stock cut at 4½" x 6½". I then cut a piece of the "Wishes" paper from the collection cut at 4¼" x 6¼" for my next layer. For the top layer I used the "Magical" paper cut at 4" x 6". I then fussy cut some of the flowers from the "Moonstone" paper which I popped up with foam tape and added a piece to the top left corner and bottom right corner. I made and printed out the "Best Mom Ever!" tag on my computer. 
For these next two cards I used Graphic 45's "Floral Shoppe" paper collection. I distressed all of the papers on these cards. The bottom layer I used the pink side of the "Verdant Blossoms" paper from the collection cut at 4¾" x 6¾". I used the green side of the "Midnight Medley" paper cut at 4½" x 6½". For the next layer I fussy cut some of the flowers from the "Midnight Medley" paper for the bottom right side of the paper and popped it up with foam pop dots. I then added some Prima flowers from my stash and printed out the banner sentiment on my computer which I also popped up with foam pop dots.
The next card is basically the same except I used a mint green card stock for the bottom base layer and pink card stock for the banner sentiment.
