I’m sure that you all had a sneaking suspicion that I was going to post more photo albums right???I just cant help myself when we get in new paper that I just love. HAVE TO PLAY WITH THE PAPER!!
Isn’t that just the best Fall paper???? I love the warm rich colors. The bingo cards are awesome too! I’ve added vintage buttons for extra detail. The albums hold 36 (4×6) pics. Great way to protect and display your photo’s that didn’t make it into the scrapbook. I’m thinking of pics of pumpkin carving, or hay rides with cider and doughnuts, or fall leaves.
Okay…I’ve gone on a nice little trip to Crazy Town…making these great little photo albums. I can only say..they are quite addictive!
They are great to use for brag books…since they have a durable plastic cover…and hold 36 (4 x 6) photos. Nice way to preserve and show off all those pics that didn’t make it into the scrapbook. And it’s portable : ) I’ll be making some for myself to display on the coffee table for the holiday season. Can we say teacher and bus driver and grandparents gifts???? Not to mention Secret Santa and stocking stuffers : ) Just sayin! I’m going to be sooo ready this year!
While I had all the yummy Christmas paper and trims out I also whipped up a totally adorable shadow box collage with all my favorite holiday elements. It’s a nice 9×11 inches. Perfect to hang…or display on a mantle or shelf.
Hoorayy for giant chipboard snowflakes! I covered these in Distress Stain and chunky clear glitter flakes.
Okay…that’s enough crazy Christmas town for one day. I’m off to do like a million things before I help out at my Sons fundraiser for his Eagle Scout project. Oh and did I mention it’s my 19th wedding anniversary??? Happy day to you D.H. Kenny. Love you!!! Can you tell it’s never boring around here???? Hope you all enjoy a happy and productive day and find some time to be creative.
I created this extra special Christmas wall hanging yesterday with lot’s of paper layers, chipboard,vintage image, and glitter. The best part is I added eyelets and hung it on a sweet little white coat hanger.
I painted and inked the chipboard frame…then a coat of Glossy Accents and some clear glitter flakes. The snowflake got some glitter too!
The coat hanger is the perfect size for hanging on the wall or on the tree. I added eyelets to keep the ribbon from pulling through the top.
The lovely vintage image is from Graphic’s Fairy. The trims are all from RRR of course!
We’ve got lot’s of new Simple Stories variety in the shop..that is if you can get some before I use it all lol. This Christmas line is FABULOUS and vintagey.
Did anyone notice that yummy vintage jar of buttons? A surprise from my Muskegan BFF Lisa. She came to play paper…but the jar had lot’s more colored buttons and her O.C.D. took over and she had to sort them all into the tiny jars I store them in. lol Thanks Lisa for the treat. And for the organizing : )

Just popping in to share another sweet birthday card I created earlier this week.
I layered these butterflies for extra dimension and topped them off with pretty pearly accents. The handcrafted flower is lightly inked with Distress Stain in Picket Fence. The trims of course are from RRR.
The vintage floral and frame image are from Graphic’s Fairy. The paper in soft teal checks and dots is from Lily Bee. I stitched it with the zig zag setting.
Just in case you’re wondering to yourself”self…she said there was going to be giraffes” Well my dear friend Brandy came in to play paper with me today and gifted me this totally wonderful and sweet hand crafted giraffe : ) I named it Tallulah. It makes me happy just looking at it. Thanks so much Brandy for the sweet surprise…you are very talented and generous!!!! : )
Okay that’s it for me…..finally at the end of a very long..but super productive day.
Here is another sweet project I made with one of the collage sheets made just for my by my BFF Heather.
That beautiful French label is from Graphic’s Fairy . I gave it a little extra inking for an aged look.
I added a large handmade flower. The trims are all from RRR.
I knew as soon as I saw the collection from Simple Stories that I would have to get right into it. The soft colors and sweet images had me swooning. I pulled out one of every sheet and the stickers too and before long I had taken over 3 tables in the shop!!! I have 6 cards total..but to keep the post from being too long I’ll share 2 today : )
All ribbon trim from RRR.
Birthday cards that is. LOL My BFF Heather made a beautiful collage sheet just for me. AWWWW. It was just perfect to coordinate with some of the new paper we got in from Lily Bee. My friend Heidi also dropped off some stamps I ordered. I had lot’s of company this week even though Dear Jane didn’t get to come play.
Every layer is well inked of course. And buttons are a must have!
I added a pretty ribbon bow and used some lace from RRR on my large dimensional flower. A few little hanging tags for subtle accent.
I have a few more cards done…but they will have to wait for tomorrow. I’m heading into the shop early to
stock out a nice big order from Simple Stories. I already have 4 or 5 cards plans working in my head lol. Hope you all enjoy a happy and productive day and find some time to be creative! G
This card is listed in the ETSY shop : )
