Birthday card organizer box

I decided I needed a place to put all my cards so I wouldn't forget to mail them out for birthdays. I had a "book" that I made to keep them all in but never used it. Hopefully I'll actually use this book and send out my cards on time. 

Check out the video on the box

Hello Sunshine mini Album

I used the Bo Bunny Hello Sunshine paper collection for this album. All embelishments are from the same line. The covers measure  6 1/2 X 6 1/2 and the spine is  2 1/4 inches wide. The pages measure  6 1/4 X 6 1/4 so a 6X6 paper pad is perfect for the pages. I did use 12X12 pages to cover the front and back covers.

Thanks for watching.

The sweetest thing tissue box cover

Here is another tissue box cover that I was asked to make for a girl at work. She said that she wanted teal and lime green so I really hope she likes it. I will find out tomorrow. 

The patterned paper is from My Mind's Eye, the sweetest thing collection, black card stock is 
Recollections, and the teal and lime green are Bazzil. The flowers are Recollecitons, and Hobby Lobby.  

The tutorial can be found on She's a super great crafter and lady! She also has a Ustream show you should really check her out. 

Neapolital collection mini Album

I used Recollections, The Neapolitan Collection and Dear Lizzy Neapolitan specialty Paper pad from American Crafts. I didn't notice that the collections are EXACTLY the same when I bought them from Michael's. But since I love the paper it's a win win.

I used the hidden hinge binding system developed by Kathy Orta on this album. The page designs are inspired or copied from various video's I have seen on You Tube. The double Library pocket page is something Kathy is known for. If you haven't checked out her tutorials, and you tube videos you really need to pop on over there and check them out. She is so inspiring.

I really love to make mini albums but my brain doesn't come up with designs very often. Certainly, nothing as cool as Kathy comes up with but you gotta start some where!

Hope you like the album!

Again thanks for watching, reading and subscribing!
