Remember a few posts back I said I was working on some mini albums? Well, I'm happy to say that I've finished one. It's my first so tread gentle...would love to hear what you think about it. I love it to pieces; can see where I can improve for next time..oh the journey is my favourite part of crafting..always learning, exploring and improving along the way.
This baby album was made with my friend Susan in mind..I hope to surprise her with it..hope she will have fun filling it with pictures and memories of being a first time mama...
I had so much fun creating this mini album. I'm not really into scrapbooking myself, but I had seen many posts on mini albums and I was hooked. Of course when I went looking for mini chipboard albums I couldn't find any...then one day I happened to look in the $1.50 section at Michaels and they had a bunch of great shaped ones..on sale..such a deal..I now have a stockpile of them..
A little pocket to add precious memories...vintage trims add to the shabby feel I was going for. More P.T.I stamps and Prima papers..
All in all I feel very satisfied; glad that I finally finished it. Can't wait to start on another...
Thanks for visiting!

My guy has requested some thank-you cards and as always, I'm happy to oblige..can't deny him, oh no. I'm so lucky he supports my creativity, and understands that if my craft area looks messy to him, it's bliss to me...lucky lucky girl here...
So using Kazan's sketch over on 2 Sketches 4 You I came up with this sweet card(pun intended) for my guy.
Well, it's time for me to go..my favourite part of the night is coming...craft time then relaxing with some super shows...
Contentment I tell ya...
Thanks for your visit!
Can you guess what I was up to this afternoon? Got a nice stash of twill tape from the local thrift store and dyed up a batch..It's one of my fave things to add to cards...love the texture and its shabby feel once its had a nice soak in some tea.
Here's another card based off of one of my fave sketch sites...as you probably have read from previous posts, I recently have taken to using sketch sites for inspiration and to challenge myself. And let me tell you this site has soo much to offer..I have much to look over and attempt...
Hope you enjoy it as much as I do...
Off now to make some scrunched seam binding:)

This post will be short and sweet. Have a messy craft desk to clear off to start anew. Here is the creation I came up with for another wonderful Lilybean photo challenge!
I do apologize for the lack of light. It's been a rainy, overcast month and my light box wasn't doing the trick this day..Will try and do another photo shoot and update the photos. I decided to pull out a paler colour scheme of greens, blue, pink and cream. Lots of inspiration jumping off points in the photo.. I chose to stick with flowers, polka dots, stripes, and that gorgeous border punched edge peeking out in the photo. It may be hard to see but the envelope has handwritten text stamped with Versa mark ink. I stamped polka dots on my main card stock in light green. If you click on the image it zooms in...A lot of Papertrey Ink stamps used here.. Polka dot basics II, Giga Guide lines(stamped in pale pale blue on cream card stock..how I love those colours!)Background Basics Textstyle (I swear I will wear this one out first! I use it everywhere.) Some Inkadinkado Swirls round out the stamps used..
Well, I am off.. hope to get a few more posts in before I leave to see my guy graduate next week!
Thanks for stopping by!
