School Themes Mini Album


Here’s a cute little mini album I whipped up in the shop yesterday….just right for those kiddos going back to school.

IMG_2198For the cover I’ve layered some pretty patterns and vintage images. Lot’s of ribbon from RRR and buttons with string. Great little paper rosette is a nice dimensional embellishment.

IMG_2201There’s glassine bags holding tags between the pages for more room to add pics and journaling. Isn’t that tiny clothespin a fun topper for the tag?

IMG_2205Here’s another tag in the pocket on the right side page. That little serious student looks like I do when I try to do math lol.

IMG_2206Another glassine bag.

IMG_2207I love the ruled paper on these pages . Just right for journaling.

IMG_2208This is my favorite set of pages : ) So colorful and cheerful and tagful…yep that’s a new word lol.

IMG_2209Last but not least….ABC stamps…how adorable.

IMG_2197-001Here’s a little closeup of the rosette.

The trims I used on the little mini are Rust Organza, Brown Twill, and Brown Striped Grosgrain.  This mini is available as a Kit. Just right for back to school pics, or gifts for teacher or grandparent…in time to get done before the holidays.

Okay that’s it for me this morning. Time to get ready to go to the shop. I’ve got shabby chic on my mind today so be on the lookout for something girlie and pink tomorrow lol. Tonight we’ll be at the high school football game to watch Jonathan in the marching band. Go Pirates!!!!

I hope you all have a happy and productive day and find some time to be creative.

A Change of Pace


Inspired by Bonnie over at Really Reasonable Ribbon….I’ve been working on projects outside my normal style….which you all know is vintage all the way. But I’m finding myself drawn to some more moderny supplies lately. So here is another Mini as promised. 

IMG_0918See….told ya it was different.  I had some really perfectly coordinated trims from RRR to match. I choose White Satin w/Black Dots, Chevron Striped Twill Black to match the graphic pop and Sheer Two-Tone Stripe and Shimmer Satin Pearl Pink for color.

IMG_0919IMG_0920IMG_0922IMG_0923So I created this mini with pockets on the pages for pics and journal cards. The paper and chunky chipboard stickers are from Crate. It’s modern but very girly too. This is a walk on the wild side for me.

I hope you all enjoy a happy and productive day and find some time to be creative : ) G

I have mini mania : )


I’ve been on a mini album kick lately. I’ll be sharing several over the next few days. I love to layer them up with loads of patterned papers and cardstock….then accent them with stickers.

IMG_0913I added some trims from Really Reasonable Ribbon….and some from my stash to dress the rings and accent the cover.

IMG_0914IMG_0915IMG_0916IMG_0917Creating baby projects always makes me very nostalgic for my boys when they were small. Everyone in my house is taller than me now. ( not too much of a challenge actually considering I’m very short lol )

Okay so that’s mini #1. Check back in tomorrow for mini #2. I think you can guess it’s a baby girl mini.

Now off to create some Super Bowl munchies and watch some pre-game specials.

Hope you all enjoy a happy and productive day and find some time to be creative : ) G
