St. Louis

These are pics of our trip to St. Louis. Still need to do journaling.
The first pics are of the kids outside the wonderful zoo and the Arch.

This one is of a baseball game we attended; St. Louis Cardinals (my hubby's favorite team) vs. the Boston Red Sox (my step-son's favorite team).

Butterfly Book #2

This is the second Butterfly Book of my series. This one was made for one of my daughter's girlfriends, Tia. Tia looooooves purple!
Again, this album follows the same pattern as my first book from the
very talented Laura Dennison.

This is one of my most favorite pages. I think I am going to redo the journaling on this one, though now that I have a Cricut.
Kelsey, she was about 5 yrs old here I think.

More Baby Kelsey

Here's a few more of Kelsey's baby pages.

Baby Kelsey

These were some pages I did of my pregnancy 7th and 8th months and the end result, Kelsey! I still have to add the journaling and a bit more embellishing to it.

Apron Recipe Album

This is a recipe album I made for a class I will be teaching at a LSS, The Little Stamp Corner, Scottsbluff, NE.
It has various papers, lace, tiny buttons, Prima flowers, Dew Drops, mini clothespins, border punches, copyright free images that I copied off and backed with cardstock to add stiffness, and mini colored safety pins. I also bought a Dollar Store 4"x6" photo album, cut the sleeves out and glued an individual sleeve on each page to hold and protect the recipe cards for the album.
The album is bound with a Bind-It-All and topped off with a small rolling pin as a hanger.

Sorry that a couple of these are blurry, still trying to get the hang of the camera setup.

I got the rolling pin hanger idea from watching Kathy at Paper Phenomenon.
Please visit Kathy's blog if you haven't done so already.
She is one very talented and funny lady!

Baby Pages

Here's a couple of baby pages I made for display at a LSS, 

Scrapping Artwork

These pages were all the culmination of a challenge, use a few items and a picture. I had no photos with me at the time as I was sorting other items and school papers. So I entered this first page and I won! I liked it so well I decided to do more. I have really enjoyed making these pages as it puts a focus on a different type of picture. I hope this gives you some more ideas.

Tuck-In Page - "Snowy Fun"

These are two pages that I designed with endless possibilities, as you can add as many or as few photos as you'd like.
It can also be designed for almost any season, event, celebration, etc.
These pages are soooo simple!
I used my Cricut to cut the letters out and added Stickles glitter and ink for highlights as well as adding pen to the bottom letters for a bit of extra whimsy and flare.
This would make a great page for those sledding and snowman building pics!

Hot Cocoa & Marshmallow Bottles

These were Christmas gifts for my kids.
I filled small juice bottles with cocoa mix and marshmallows, decorated the outside with snowmen characters, and finished them off with some ribbon.

Butterfly Book #1

This is the first book I have completed using Laura Dennison's pattern. Isn't it cute???

Stay tuned for more to come because these are a lot of fun to make and embellish.
I made this book for a grand daughter of a friend of mine, Chloe. I sure hope she likes it.
Her fave colors are pink, teal and purple.
Each one of the "wings" pull out so you can add photos and/or journaling or you can always leave it just as it is.
