Autumn Leaves

Who doesn't love fall with its amazing array of colors and textures. Even the smells of fall are beautiful. The sound of the leaves crackling beneath your feet. The cool, crisp air reminding you it is sweater season (tee hee).

 I absolutely love the paper used for the coving of this folio. It is such a vivid photo on the paper you would love to reach in and crab a handful of those leaves, throw them in the air......rake them up and then JUMP into the pile. We we were young we had a big yard with tons of leaves. We used to rake them into "areas" and make houses, hospitals or even schools and play in them all day long. What imaginations we had.

 The inside of the folio I used a patterned paper for one side of the waterfall and then another patterned paper on the other side of the waterfall. Pretty leaves to decorate the side pocket too.

 I used an orange ribbon to fill the seams in between each flap of the waterfall. I thought a splash of color in between the browns and creams would be pretty. I wish my mom was still with us. She loved the fall and all its beautiful colors.

The tags that I made for the album are big enough to journal about your photos or add more photos on them and journal on the back. Either way there is a lot of room for photos in this album. Show off all those pretty photos you are taking :)

Black and White

This album was so fun and creative for me to make. When my sister passed away last May, we found several of these photo album collections in her home. I took them and …… you guessed it. I am making decorative photo albums from them!

Then I RIPPED out the insides……..

And threw it away!

Then I was off to make a fabulous Mini Album or 2 or 3 or…. I have Black and white and I have Brown Earth tones. Both beautiful I believe anyway! Here is the first one.

Every other page has a pullout folio. Then folds over so you can affix 4 photos if you like.  The other pages have pockets with tags in them. Another 6 or more photos can be put on these, or journaling if you like.

This is just a few of the pages. Let me know if you like it. If you really like it, share it for me :)  Thanks so much for taking the time to look.

Single Page Memories

I decided I wanted to scrapbook a few pages of Christmas and Winter past. Looking out the kitchen window at mom & dads, you see the beautiful winter wonderland and one bright red cardinal perched on the bush. I think that’s a lilac tree but I do not remember. I thought it was so exciting that Carta Bella made a paper that accented that beautiful bird. I also added stickles to the birds to make them pop off the paper. Then I added rhinestones in the trees to make them sparkle.

This page was fun to create because floods of memories came rushing back from my childhood. I was 13 and my sister Melanie was 6. I remember the hat and mittens because I think I wore them every year until they wore out. The dog in the picture was Dolly. I loved her so much. She ran away one year while dad took her hunting. She never came back. This is the same paper pack as the last photo Snow Fun by Carta Bella. I added some red sequins with rhinestones on them and some red pearls at the top. The snowflakes,…
In October we were blessed with another Grand~child. Zackery. He is perfect. Such a cutie and so good...omg he seldom cries. 💗 I "needed" to make him a baby book. I had soooo much fun making this album. I used the Bundle of Joy paper from Echo Park. I LOVE this paper.

 The way the ultrasound photos just fell into place with the dates on them and I love the title "Life in the Inside" Stole that from Pinterest.
 Then in the center...Daddy holding his son for the first time...Awww how can you not get emotional at the photo. That is why I placed it in the center.

 First time meeting  my favorite Auntie 💖
 I love photos of the child sleeping on the father. So this one just melts my heart.
 This is another photo that just melts me...Ya, I melt a lot like the Wizard of Oz witch ha ha

 Are those not the most darling flirty eyes? You just want to pinch his cheeks and kiss him all over!!
 Grandma and the twins were the first visitors. Grandma looks so happy…
