I had a blast putting together this Envelope Mini Album using My Minds Eye Fine & Dandy Paper Collection. I used the Ribbon, Buttons, Chipboard embellishments and the 6x6 paper pad. I also added some prima flowers for the cover.

Simple Valentines Mini for American Red Cross Chocolate Festival

I was asked to create an item for the silent auction at the Medina County American Red Cross Chocolate Festival that will be held on February 5th. This event is so much fun because you get to walk around and taste amazing creations out of chocolate!!!

I created an envelope mini for the event. I tried to keep it simple so that the winner could place photos in it or give it as a gift.

Thanks for looking!!!

Monthly Card Planner - January Class

I am so excited to show you the Monthly Card Planner that I have created for my January Class. It includes 12 pockets with a journaling spot to include all your occassions for each month. Each pocket is sealed closed with a velcro tab to keep your handmade cards secure.

The book is 6 x 9 and contain scraps from my pockets for the cover. I glimmer misted a large Alabaster Prima flower in Candy Apple Red and the Fairy Tale Roses in Olive Vine. The flowers under my small roses are the Hydranga petals from Prima. I also included a blue bling swirl and some twig style flowers.

Here is a close-up of my Prima flowers:

2011 Daily Planner featuring Webster's Pages

Every year I try to get more organized but can never find a planner or calendar system that I like so, this year I created my own and I am so excited to start using it. 

This planner was super simple to put together using my Bind-it-All.  The front & back covers are a chipboard base covered in patterned paper. I tore the edges of the patterned paper and added Olive Vine Glimmer Mist for detail and shimmer.  I wrote "2011" in the backet at the top and added a vellum sheet that was also torn and glimmer misted to the bottom corner. The Prima flowers were Glimmer misted and adhered along with the bling swirl.

The inside cover has a vellum pocket with 2 shipping tags featuring my 2 little girls. I have also included a family photo at the top with the word "family" added to the pocket with a Prima flower.

For each month I cut a piece of patterned paper to 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and added a shipping tag with the month to each page to create the dividers. I also tied the string on the shipping tag into a bow.

To create the calender pages, I first cut a sheet of cardstock in half to 5 1/2 x 8 1/2. This creates the pages. Then, I cut it in half again. Then, I distressed each piece and wrote the days of the week plus notes and arranged them so that they could be copied front and back.

Here is a view of the inside back cover. It was covered in vellum and glimmer misted with a little bling.

Lastly, here is a view of the whole book. It ended up being around 2 in thick. I would recommend using a thicker computer paper so that you can add more pockets and embellishments.
