Here is one of the first cards I created with my Clique Cards Kit!!  I just love this kit and how many embellishment options I have when creating!!  This was a very fast and easy card to create.  To start out, I cut a piece of the green Bazzil cardstock in half the long way and folded it to create my 5.5″ by 4.25″ card base.  Next I just trimmed this super cute tree paper down to 5.25 by 4″ and adhered it to the front of my card with my favorite foam adhesive from 3L Scrapbook Adhesives, found here. Then, I sprinkled a few fun sequins from the Clique Card kit into my mini glassine bag and sealed with a small strip of 3L Scrapbook Adhesives taper runner before I wrapped the mini bag with some fabulous Twinery Shimmer twine.  Then I just adhered it to the front of my card.  I chose this fun holiday tag from the assortment of Fancy Pants Designs tags from their super cute Oh Deer collection and let the string fall randomly.  To add some sparkle, I used a glue dot to adhere the 15mm snowflake sequin right on top of the Fancy Pants tag.  For a finishing touch of gold I added a Pink Fresh Studio gold puffy sticker along the bottom and TA-DA!! Done!

Artiste Mini Album with Chantilly Lace & Pretty Faces

Happy, Happy Saturday my scrappy friends!! I’m sharing a fun mini album today using the Close To My Heart Chantilly papers and my the exclusively CTMH Artiste Cricut Cartridge. I love making special little gifts for those special people in my life and mini’s like this are my fav! I’ll get right to it with lots of pictures to share today.

I created this fun mini for my mother in law Dolly for her sister Elaine’s visit last week. I cut my mini album pages using my Cricut Artiste Cartridge, inked lots of the edges and started piling on the layers!

CTMH chantilly 001 CTMH chantilly 002

Check out how I added the 4×4 Instagram pictures. I reinforced all the mini album holes with my Crop-a-dile and the large eyelets. I reinforced the holes for the photos the same way. I don’t know about some of you, but when I first started scrapbooking I bought hoards of eyelets and now hardly use them. Ok ladies, dig into that stash and use them!

CTMH chantilly 003 CTMH chantilly 004 CTMH chantilly 005

CTMH chantilly 006 CTMH chantilly 008

I added texture of a bunch of the die cuts and pockets by running them through my Sizzix Texture Boutique. I love the extra details the dry embossing adds to die cut or any element you want to adhere to your project! Plus, it’s so fun to actually USE those tools and look so pretty just sitting there 🙂

CTMH chantilly 009 CTMH chantilly 010 CTMH chantilly 011 CTMH chantilly 012 CTMH chantilly 013 CTMH chantilly 014

I included a few pockets & a bunch of shipping tags also. They’re fun interactive elements that Dolly can write on or add more pictures herself.

And you should always ‘bring up the rear’ and do something pretty on the back of your mini album too! I just stamped a simple sentiment from CTMH and adhered it with more Chantilly papers.

And, you’re done! That was a lot of pictures to go through, whew! I hope that I’ve inspired you to create your own mini album with whatever supplied to you have on hand & use your Cricut and embossing tools!!

Happy Scrappin’!!

Create an Easy December Mini Book!

 First of all… welcome to my new blog and website!!!  I’ll be adding more features in the upcoming weeks.  You’ll find the site navagation bar at the bottom of the page.

I said easy & I meant it!  Here’s what you do to create a simple 6″x6″ mini book, for any occasion.  I’m using my December Traditions Album to document some of the everyday things we do, like Black Friday shopping and putting up our tree right after.  St. Nick also visits our home and brings us goodies and a Christmas movie or two.

For this mini album, start with a couple 12″x12″ pieces of patterned paper.  I used double sided paper with a side I loved and a side I didn’t love.  I cut my wood grain sheet of paper in half to create two 6″x12″ pieces for my album pages.  Next, score the 6″x12″ piece at the 6″ mark, then fold in half as shown below.  {You can click on the individual pictures below to make them bigger.}

The next pictures in the gallery show the insides of album pages that I covered with Fancy Pants Home For Christmas 6×6″ papers.  I covered the crossword puzzle side of the papers and left the wood grain side exposed.

After arranging the order of my pages, I punched holes with my Crop A Dile.  Metal book rings are a great way to put together mini albums, tags albums and more!  Then, let the fun began!! I added Studio Calico Wood Veneers, May Arts Burlap String, tags, glassine bags, Mr Hueys Spray Ink, Washi tapes and more!

Now that you can see how easy it is, create one for your December traditions this year!  As a special THANK YOU for stopping by today, I have a special deal for you.  Buy 3 washi tapes in my Etsy Shop and one FREE!!!  Just message me with your FREE WASHI choice. 

You really can make time to scrapbook around the holidays, just keep it simple and scrap it!!

Let’s Get Hoppin’

Welcome to your 5th stop on the Memory Works Birthday Blog Hop! You should have hopped over from Studio C with the uber talented Christy Musack.  The Design Team has some awesome projects on this hop in honor of Memory Works turning 10 years old!  You’ll see many of the newest Memory Works products on display, so let’s party it up!!  Here’s the full line-up.

->5. Jody Spiegelhoff http://spiegelmom.blogspot.com/ <-
15. Christine Pennington http://christines-creativetherapy.blogspot.com/

I created a 12 month birthday timeline for our little Abigail, a.k.a Abby, for her 1 year birthday party.  She doesn’t turn 1 until November 14th, so for once I’ll be ahead of schedule!  I used the new Dear Lizzy Neapolitan 6×6″ pad, Chipboard, Vellum, MME Dolled Up & Crate Paper Pretty Party Stickers {here and there}, glassine bags, natural burlap string, Jillibean Corrugated Butterflies & Banners, American Crafts Rosette Ribbon, misc chipboard numbers, Cosmo Cricket Tiny Type letters, May Arts Watermelon Sheer ribbon and WRMK Eyelets.  Whew!  Now that’s a supply list!

As you can see, the pictures stop at the 7 month banner… she’s only 7 months!

Now for some close-ups! 
I used the Tim Holtz Rosette Die & an EK Success Border Punch on this Banner.  Abby’s picture is inside the glassine bag on a pull out tag.

A little doily & spray ink from Mr. Huey goes a long was in adding some delicate texture.  I also ran the clouds & banners through my Sizzix Texture Boutique for some fun dimensional polka dots.

I also ran the glassine bags through my Texture Boutique ~ polka dots, flowers and swirly patterns give it more girly charm & texture.

Here’s a fun silhouette of the hanging banner in our front picture window.

Thanks so much for stopping by & helping us party it up for Memory Works turning 10!


There will be a *prize* for one lucky winner, sponsered by Memory Works!
Leave a comment at each blog you visit along the hop for more chances to win! You have until midnite to leave your comments. The lucky winner will be announced on the Memory Works blog on Wednesday, June 27th.
