Envelope Mini Album

Hello Stampers!

No, I have not fallen off the face of the Earth; I am still alive and well!  The last few months have been pretty busy as you can imagine.  My daughter gave birth three days after my last blog entry and much of my time has been spent admiring her and her partner’s handiwork.  Baby Stella is beautiful if you ask me!  I am totally in love with her. 🙂  In October my mom, sister and brother-in-law visited to see the baby and just last week I was in Salt Lake City for OnStage 2017.  So the last few weeks have been busy.

If you will indulge me for a moment, I want to share a few pictures of the newest edition to my family.  Thank you in advance for humoring me.  I know all Grandmas think their grandchildren are beautiful and I promise I will not make this a habit.  🙂  These are from earlier this month.

Now on to the real reason why we are here.

I created this mini album awhile ago, but I wanted to make sure I shared it before too much more time passes, because I think something like this would make a really good Christmas gift to someone you love…maybe a new Mom or Grandma!  Now you know what I plan on doing with mine.   Both videos run a little long, but I think they are well worth the time.  I don’t go into details on the decoration of each page, but I have included a photo of each at the end of this post with a description of what I used to decorate it.  I hope you like what you see and take the time to make one for yourself.  I think it would be well worth your time.

Enjoy the videos, and if you have any questions about anything related to this project, please email me.

 

 

 

Until next time…

Happy Stamping!

 

 

 

These are the front covers of both albums.

This is the inside of the front cover and the pocket on page 1.

Pages 2 and 3.  On the page 3 on the right I cut a reindeer in gold foil and quartered a foil snowflake for each corner.

Pages 4 and 5.  I made pockets on each page.

Pages 6 and 7.  I used the snowflake dies from the Seasonal Layers Thinlits and the 1/2″ circle punch to make the circles on the right.  The left side is a pocket with a half circle notch cut at the top edge using the 1″ circle punch.  I also cut a foil snowflake in half and glued it over the pocket and cut the center out with the 1″ circle punch.  I used the Winter Wonder and Holly Textured Embossing Folders one each page.

Pages 8 and 9.  A small corner pocket and bands to hold photos/mementos.

Pages 10 and 11.

Daisy Delight Gift Bag and Cards

Hello!

As I mention in my first video, it has been way too long!  June and July seemed to fly by.  We left for vacation in June right after the new Annual Catalog went live and July was spent catching up and anticipating the birth of my granddaughter.  My daughter is pregnant due to give birth to baby Stella in September. I can barely contain my excitement!  Yes, I have three other grandchildren through marriage, a 6-year-old and almost 2-year-old grandsons and a 6-year-old grand-daughter.  This one is a little different.  It is MY baby girl having her OWN baby girl and making me a REAL Nonna!   (Italian for Grandma).  I needed to make some shower favors and complete a few crochet projects I had started for her.  That is all done now.  Now we just wait…..:)

As I also mention in the video, I was inspired by July’s Paper Pumpkin to create this gift bag and cards.  I think I call it a box in the videos, but it is really a bag.  For July’s Paper Pumpkin, I created two different sizes of bags; one for the note cards and one for the 5-1/2 x 4-1/4.

 

 

So here are the videos.  I hope you enjoy them. Before you watch, you need to know that I mis-called the color of navy card stock in the videos.  I said I used Not Quite Navy (a retired Stampin’ Up! color) when in fact I used Night of Navy.  Sorry.  🙂 If you have any questions, please let me know.

 

 

 

 

Hope you enjoyed your visit today!  Until next time…

Happy Stamping!

Oh So Succulent Coupon/Recipe Organizer

Hello Stampers!

I don’t remember when I was here last!  I’ve been really busy the last few weeks.  Don’t know what I have been busy with, but I’ve been busy…or maybe I should say unproductive!  :0)

I’ve had this project ready to share for a while.  I just never got around to producing the video, etc.  But it is finally done, and I hope you enjoy making it as much as I did.  I just love the Succulent Designer Series Paper and Oh So Succulent stamp set.  I fell in love the minute I saw them last November when I first go the Occasions Catalog.  I don’t know why I waited so long to order them.  Since seeing the stamp set and paper, I’ve created a succulent display on my front porch and one by the patio door inside the house.  It is ready to move outside as soon as the weather allows.  They are so easy to take care of!

This project started out as a coupon organizer for my purse, but it ended up being so cute that I decided it shouldn’t be hidden.  I changed it to a recipe organizer that can be left out on the kitchen counter.  It is up to you to decide how to use it.  I hope you enjoy it!

Until next time…

Happy Stamping!

Pop-Up Valentine in a Box

Hello Stampers!

Today I am sharing a video on how to make this special Valentine card for the special person in your life.  This one is for my husband…lucky guy!  🙂

What makes this Valentine so unique is it comes in a box, and when you remove the lid, the card pops up out of the box.

Adorable!  And it is really easy to make.

I hope you enjoy your visit today!  Until next time…

Happy Stamping!
