WINTER 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.

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)











HALLOWEENIE
The time is near. The time is coming...it will soon be here. We will all dress up and go to haunted houses, door to door trick or treating, and maybe even some SPOOKY  ghosts <tee hee>.
I made this album for Halloween. Its for the Holiday sales coming up.  Redeemer Church in Wittenberg on October 14th and December 2nd at the Rothschild Pavilion. I have so many things ready to go. Ornaments, cards, scrapbooks, folios, christmas presents like tea lights and holiday candles. I am so excited.


Fall is in the Air  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 …

Secret Garden

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. …

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,…

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.
