ITS A BOY!



ITS A BOY!

A friend asked me to make her another baby book. This time it is a BOY! I was so excited to get started. The first page is the same for both the books I made her. This gift wrapped piece in the middle of the page is an expandable section for the ultrasound photos. It holds 8 of them and then folds back up.



The next page is mom and dad holding baby....usually for the first time.This always deserves a special page 


Little guy. More than just the traditional blues we went with woodsy colors and greens and earth tones. I think the colors went very well together. I didn't use just one paper pack. I used a bunch of different ones. 


Storks!! We have to have storks lol


Sooo adorable. The clothesline with the little socks and clothes are adorable. It also has a tag so she can journal the events of the photos 







This page holds 12 little photos and 1 in the center. Traditionally it is used to put a picture of each month. 



See the turtles? It is actually a little booklet that holds several photos PLUS you can put photos directly on the page. Cute huh?





It was a complete Joy to make another album for the Mommy to be. I love to create all my albums but when its a friend, someone you know, and when they are a previous customer it just makes my heart sing!!

WINTER $50.00 plus shipping
Yes, I did another winter album. These folio books are totally awesome! I love them and every time I get a new style of paper I want to make another one.
I know it is hard to see but this paper is full of gold and blues. The papers are glittery and embossed. It is so beautiful that I am going to keep this one for myself.  This is the front cover. Too beautiful to add embellishments. So I left it plain.



Open the folio and it looks like this. The bird tags open up to reveal places for photos. I will have to post this book again after I fill it with photos.  


Open it one more time and it reveals pockets for single photos you can just back on cardstock and then pot in the pockets. Both sides of this folio are a mirror image of the other. On the right side of the page is a belly flap and that lifts up to reveal more photos.


See, flips up and holds more and you can put photos right on the flap itself. All those cool tags are made so you can put photos on the back or on both sides.


Close the flap and turn the page. Ta-da!! More places for photos and more flaps. This paper is so gorgeous and it is hard enough to cut the paper much less putting photos on it to cover it.


Even when you flip the pages open, the paper is so pretty.




At the very end of the album is a 3 page folio. Very cool. They are full pages . No flaps, pockets or anything.

So this year I joined a Tag swap on facebook. We made 6 christmas tags of any kind (basically) and then sent them in to one person who swaps them and mails them back. Totally excited to see what I get back. 
These photos are the tags that I made (front and back)
To make something similar would be $5.00 /3 tags

Fall is in the Air $3.00 each
     Fall is in the air and the leaves are turning the most beautiful colors.  Who doesn't love those drives through thought the wooded areas. Admiring the beautiful of the falling leaves, the hilltops in such beautiful colors, only God could have made. I was inspired to make this card. Yes it is a little bit bigger than the normal size card BUT, it is very cool. With this card you can stand it up with the zig-zag pattern or you can lay it flat.  I seriously loved making this one so much, I am definitely making so Christmas cards in the same pattern!!




     Fall also means it is the start of Craft Bazaars!! YAYYYY. Here is one of the pictures I will be taking with me to my craft sale. Redeemer Lutheran Church in Wittenberg, WI. I have made 6 different pictures like this, tons of cards for fall, halloween, christmas and also every day cards. I made Mini post it boards and christmas ornaments. How fun it has been to prep for these shows. I will post some pictures when I finish them.....stay tuned!



     I know it is not even Halloween yet, although my hubby is already decorating, but I am so excited for Christmas. Soooo excited for everything from Santa, presents, jingle bells and hot chocolate. Have you started any shopping, decorating, gift making yet?

Secret Garden $100.00






This is the most beautiful paper I have seen in a long time (except Christmas paper of course) I purchased this paper a while ago but had a hard time using it because I wanted just the perfect album to make out of it. This is it, this is the album. I got this idea from LMs Crafty Creations on you tube. She is brilliant and a gift to the You Tube scrapbooking world.  Here is a link to her channel. www.youtube.com/user/LMsCraftyCreations/videos

The paper I used for this creation is Graphic 45’s Secret Garden collection.  It holds enough photos for any occasion you like.  The album is for sale at $100.00
Here is the cover. I left it plain because this paper does not need frills and bling. Its beautiful all by itself. I did put glossy accent on the key and the flower centers at the bottom. Just to add texture and make them pop a little.



When you open the book, it folds open on both sides of the album. The purple cards on the top and bottom open to reveal more space for photos or journaling. They close shut with magnets. 


Then you open it again and you have the pink flaps. The outside flaps open to the right and the inside flaps open to the left.



Inside you will find purple flower paper with pockets to store more memorabilia, photos or to journal notes on. There are little booklets with adorable cards on them and plenty of tags.


Close the sides and open from the center again and you will have green flowers and a vertical belly band on each page in the center and pockets on the sides. Your photos can slide underneath the belly band and it holds them in place. The pockets are filled with more little booklets and journaling cards.


On the same page, the green flowered paper flips up on both sides to reveal a beautiful paper that is filled with words of antique gardens like; seed and grow. The yellow flowers sticker is mounted on card stock and punched out with my scallop punch. The side pockets are journaling cards I mounted on card stock (not from the collection) and made pockets out of them. 






This picture is the other side of the album opening the pink flower pages to the left and to the right. It reveals the purple flower paper just like the left side.



Close that all up and open the inside next page to pretty blue paper. Each side has a horizontal belly band that will hold your photos and these two pages flip up. In the center are two built in booklets with magnetic closure.


Flip up the side papers and there are gorgeous pink flowers. More pockets with little booklets. I left the top part white so if someone wanted to journal or use a 5x7 photo it would be blank. The Secret Garden on the pockets are stickers from the collection put on card stock and placed on the paper.


When you open the inside blue pages, it becomes a brilliant yellow paper full of happy flowers and room for some serious photo collage or memorabilia


One more time and it is this wonderful bird cages and blue birds…. the greenery pops off the page. Its gorgeous. 


The last pages open to the Secret Garden once again. I could not pick the pages I like best in this book. The whole book is wonderful and beautiful. If you interested in this book please email me at ilovesherbearcreations@gmail.com or leave me a comment. 


Thank you for looking!
