Vacation! Day 2!

Day One was mostly a rest day, but on day 2 my mom and I spent at least half the day trying to decide whether to quilt or make dolls! I have brought my doll making things with me to make some dolls that I have been wanting to make for quite some time and had not because I was so busy paper crafting instead. Well, finally we decided on the dolls! I had brought a couple books with me that also had a couple "doll" patterns in them, so Mom decided she wanted to make one of them. I traced out the patterns for her, she cut them out, and sewed one up! I do not have my camera with me, but I will get a picture for you to see it somehow because it is one of those things you just have to see to believe! ROFL!!! Words just cannot describe this work of art! So, when I get the pics I will post them on this post right here for all to see! Now don't get me wrong! The finished doll body is not my mother's doing but it was the pattern we used! You really must see this to believe it! Today, Day 3, I am going to draw out my own pattern for mom and myself to use. We'll see how that turns out! Have a great day everyone! And wow! I really miss paper crafting already! Hugzies! Julie

“Graphic 45 Design Team 2012 Audition"

This sweet li'l 4x4 mini album is made using Graphic 45's "Once Upon A Spring Time" paper line. Find more detail on this project Here.

This is a special 4x4 mini album I made to sell. Special because I designed a holder for it to sit in with velvet jingle bells for the feet! You will find more about this project HERE. 

This is my very first completed Family Recipe Album! The papers are by "Webster's Pages". Although it was a bit of a challenge, I created this stand for it to sit in on my kitchen desk top. I just luv the mason jar tag I created especially for this mini. You will find more details on this project here.

I created the adorable Christmas album below as a gift for my sister. I was so pleased how it turned out for her. I  used Basic Grey's Jovial paper line and stickers.  It contains some of my own hand drawn designs in it such as the snowman with the red top hat on and the snowman peeking from behind the santa pocket with felt accents on his…


I have for so very long, a few years now, wanted to make a doll house album. I have talked about it, drawn out ideas and designs for it, and mulled over it for quite some time. The only other project that took me this long to pull together was my first Recipe Album!! Yesterday, I decided on a design and today a theme! Two elements one absolutely must possess in order to create any thing at all! I was thinking I should like to have my book designed so that I can have interactive paper dolls in it. I thought that I would design them as well, but as I glanced through an old 2009 desk calendar by Mary Engelbreit, I decided I would try to use the many paper dolls I have in the magazines I have collected of hers over the years instead. I think I have found a suitable paper line as a base to start. So! Onward and upward I go in true Mary Engelbreit fashion!!
Wish me luck!
