Christmas Cards and Baskets
These are just a few of the cards I made this Christmas. 
I also made the envelopes because I did not have envelopes for these cards since they are 6x6 in size.

Inside has a pocket  where I put a tea bag and a chocolate.

I also made these gift baskets that I filled with Skin So Soft Avon products and chocolates. It has a homemade gift tag and a homemade card!

So on to the next holiday? Valentines day?

  This folio was soooo much fun to make. I used the Graphic 45 paper and everything else came from all different places. I love mixing all different products together. 

Here is the inside top and bottom. There are pull out little flips as well.

And....of course a waterfall too. This book holds tons of photos

 So this is my sassy daughter, Kate. Her Birthday
is in January so I made her this pretty January mini
folio. The paper is Graphic 45 Time to Flourish.
Almost everything else is Recollections. I really
enjoyed making it so I think I am going to make one
for every month :)

Spring Market Card

This is a 5x7 card with a little mini accordian pull out in it. It is so lovely! I saw the video from Kathy By Design and just knew I had to make one. I will link her Blog below. The front has a heart card that comes out of the belly band so you can write on it or put pictures in it or whatever suits your fancy.  The flowers are from Recollections and the paper is Spring Market by Carta Bella

Here is the front without the heart card.

When you lay it down and open it up the top shows the mini accordion pull out and the bottom holds 2 tags in a cute little pocket.

The tags are quite large and can be used for photos or journalling or just leave them as they are. 

The left side of the accordion opens like this. Both sides are covered in the paper. 

This is the right side opened up.

And the middle holds two tags for journaling or photos.

One of the pages in the accordion pull out has a matchbook on it. It is held together with magnets. The Plant piece is only glued on the bottom so a picture can slide in behind it. No wasted space!!

This is the back. These rainboots are soooo stinkin cute! 

Thank you so much for checking out my blog and for sharing it (please). Here is Kathy's blog:

Cards for Assisted Living

The paper from Doodlebug is adorable. So I had to make some cards. Most of the cards I made are generic so people can use them for anything they wish. I made about 30 of them to donate to a local rehab assisted living facility. It makes me happy to make even just one of them happy.

This paper is Spring Market by Carta Bella. It is so beautiful I made a ton of cards with it. I also made a few other projects with it. Ill post those in the next day or so.

I watch a lot of Kristie Marcotte videos. I love her paper choices and she share her card sketches. Thank you Kristie

Christmas and Halloween Cards

Some Christmas cards and some Halloween cards. So cute, I know I will have to make more and more.

These Halloween cards are in all different sizes. I used all different paper and embellishments. 

Here is the inside of one.

These are my absolute favorite style of card I think....for now lol. So very cool with the belly bands or with the embellishment flap.

Here is a picture of inside the cards. Aren't they cute??

Country Kitchen Recipe Album Sale $40 plus shipping

This Country Kitchen paper collection is from Cartabella. It is so reto and fabulous I love it without even putting any photos in it! 
The front cover has a quote from Audrey Hepburn. My daughter in law would LOVE that. 
This is a regular mini album with pull out tags to add more photos. You can easily put over 50 photos in this album. 

There is a pocket on each page to hold your journaling cards, recipes or extra photos. Then there is a pull out page tag on each page (right side of the page) It pulls out all the way and holds 4  4x6 photos or more if they are smaller. 

Look how retro. I lovvvve retro. From the checkered to the floral....that pink reminds me of an old bathroom (tee hee)

The tags are so sweet. You can put photos on the back or use a white pen and journal or write a recipe on it.....or maybe quick kitchen tips or farm hand don't pet the chickens 😜

Look at the Farm papers!! Everybody loves to go visit the farm.

So this album could be used for so many things. Like a album to save your favorite recipes or photos of your farm, or a visit to the farm OR just any photos because you love the paper like me 😀
I hope you love this album as much as I loved making it. If you would like a similar one but custom made to your family or needs, let me know and I can try to make that special album for you.
