Mini Paper Bag Album

Hi there. Boy, it has been a while since I have been on here. I need to get my act together. Recently, I refurnishes one of the bedrooms and made it into a scrapbooking room. I repainted, and got new furniture, so now I am set. I am LOVING IT!!!!!!!

I was surfing YouTube, and ran across the mini paper bag albums. I loved it so much, I couldn't wait to tackle the project. So here it is. I hope you enjoy. I am already starting another one. These are so much fun!! The paper and most of the embellishments are from the K and Company. There is an envelope I made myself in the album as well.

For some reason, I am having problems uploading the video, so here is the link to view it. I hope you enjoy.

Sympathy Card

Here is a sympathy card I made for my neighbor. She lost her husband of 51 to cancer. We will miss our friend / neighbor. He was such a wonderful person.

Edwin card

Hello there! I made this card for my nephew who had to have 4 teeth pulled Friday. He is getting ready to have braces put on. What a trooper he is! He definitely is a lot braver than me. I get all nervous just when I get my teeth cleaned. Anyway, I went through all my paper scraps and pulled out this paper for the card. I used copic markers to color edwin. I created a tag, and attached it to the inside of the folded card. I am inserting money for my nephew in the tag. No, not just a dollar either, lol!! Anyway, hope you enjoy! :0)

My first crisscross card

Well, I decided I would tempt my first crisscross card. I had a blast making this card. Kind of plain and simple, but delicate. I really didn't want to put a lot of embellishments as I really love the paper, and didn't want to cover it up much. I am ready to sit down and do some more of these cards! Hope you enjoy, have a great day!

Magnolia Challenge 51 Embossing

Oh my, has it been a while since I posted. Too darn long! I have to say I missed it. I am submitting this card for the challenge. I actually saw this idea as an album, and thought it would be cute as a card. I used chalk this time to color this adorable little Tilda. Hope you enjoy! :)

Magnolia Image

Well, 2 cards in one day! Who could ask for anything more, LOL!! Now it's time to sit back, relax and enjoy the remainder of the evening (which is not much left as I need to go to bed). I saw this type of card on DYI Scrapbooking TV show, and thought Oh my, what a cute idea! and easy! Except, I had some serious problems with the paper bubbling up on me. O'well, you win some, you loose some, haha! I love the dangly embelishments, though I have to say. I colored sweet Tilda with chalk this time. Took a break from the ole copic's. Anyway, off to bed. Have a super evening! Or day, which ever it may be.

Anya Inc Challenge

Ok, so this is my first entry for the Anya Ink Challenge. I wanted to do something different. This card was definitely out of my comfort zone! But I wanted to spice it up so this is what came of it. I used Copic Markers for my coloring. The black hair is a bit tricky for me for some reason, but practice makes perfect, right? I guess that means I must make more cards to get all the practice in! Love that idea! :0) Anyway, hope you all enjoy! HAVE A FANTASTIC DAY! Thank you for any comments. they are appreciated!
