Doggie Maze Book

I just got through with another Maze Book. I really like how this one turned out. It's got more of a book look to it with the book spine and all. Didn't want to put too many embellishments so that someone can add their own lil personal additions to it. Dog Papers were Karen Foster, Deja Views Dog Day Collection, and the Paper Studio. Black cardstock from DCWV Cardstock Stack.
Thanks for looking! Any and all comments welcome!




Accordion Mini Book 4x4

A quick 4x4 accordion album I put together this morning. Papers are from Basic Greys Lollipop Collection.



Coaster Mini Book

This is a coaster book I made tonight. Thought it could be used as a wedding album or something along those lines. The papers are from the new DCWV La' Creme Stack. They're more of a yellowish brown color, than the light color the pictures show. I'm just having problems with my camera and flash cooperating. The black areas in the front and back cover are felt.

Star Book

A new mini-book that I tried making tonight. It's called the Star Book. I liked how this one turned out. May try to make a bigger one down the line. All papers are from the Basic Grey line--Lollipop Set

Triangular Around Book

This one was fun to make. It's called the Triangular Around book. You can either use it like the prior ones, opened up on your table, or you can keep it as a mini book for your purse. The little tabbed cards in each slot are optional also. The various papers I used came from DCWV Spring Stacks and American Crafts. The tabs were cut with the silhouette on 1.5in. There's a total of 8 cards..1 in each slot. You could embellish or adhere your pictures on the front and the back of each card.

Square Around Book

Yep another new adventure! This one is called a Square Around Book. I have to admit this one was very simple and fast to make. The part that takes so long is figuring out how you want to embellish it. I haven't embellished any of my books too much, that way it leaves room for whoever receives them to embellish how they would like, to fit whatever pictures they add to it. Papers used were from Cosmo Cricket.

I'm really pleased on how this one turned out. I think this one is my favorite by far. I hope yall like and thank you for so many nice comments and the push to keep going!

Hmmm I wonder what's going to be next......













Circle Around Book

Ok here's my new adventure!!! Tonight I tried my hand at the Circle Book. It's similar to the Square Around and Triangle Around Book. It was simple and fun to make! I'm really enjoying making these lil books, although I haven't seen my bed much since I started. But hey what's new?!!? At least it's forcing me to try something new. And again...NO MOD PODGE involved!! lol
Papers and ribbon are from American Crafts. Circles were cut at 11in with the Cricut Expression.

Hope ya like and thanks for looking!!
On to the next project.......

Card for my Dad

I made this card for my Dad. He was recently diagnosed with Prostate Cancer and I wanted him to know that I was thinking of him and for him to be strong through this time.
Ideas were gotten from the ladies over at Splitcoast Stampers. I also got the 'What Cancer Cannot Do' saying that's on the front of the card from there also.

Cricut Fairy Cards

These were cards that I made for a group that I'm in on the Cricut Board.

This was a birthday card made with the Stampin Up! 'A Lil Birdie Told Me' Stamp set. Papers from DCWV. Ribbon from Michaels.

The following two cards were made with papers from the new DCWV La'Creme stack. Prima flowers with bling brads and Ribbon from Michaels. Sentiment stamp from Stampin' Up.



The idea for the following two cards were cardlifted from some of the talented ladies from Splitcoast Stampers and altered a bit. Stamp set in first card below is from Stampin' Up called Hope Is......
Primas, Ribbon and punches used also



Stamp set below is Stampin' Up called Loads of Love and Loads of Love Accessories. Colored with prisma pencils and gamsol technique used. Ribbon and punch also used.
