"My Mini Album Creations"
My Domestic Goddess Family Scraps Recipe Album
Made from a design that I created using colored file folders.
This is my very first completed Family Recipe Album!
The album pages are made from 6x9 envelopes. 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.
"A Christmas Wish"
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! The paper line is by K & Company. It contains a pocket style tag I created especially for this album. I just luv the mix of colors in this mini.
This sweet li'l 4x4 mini album is made from light weight chipboard using Graphic 45's
"Once Upon A Spring Time" paper line. The lightweight chipboard pages were cut out using dies by Spellbinders. It was a simple pleasure to create. The paper line made it even more of a joy to create.
"The Olde School House"
This album is one of my own designs made from manilla file folders using the "Lost and Found" paper line by Tim Holtz. We began making this mini in one of my U-stream classes in 2011. This album turned out to be a bit of a challenge for me but when all was said and done I luv how it came together.
THIS is one of my all time favorite little mini album's! This little darling is made using the lovely "Domestic Goddess" paper line by Graphic 45! I absolutely luv this paper line and am finding it harder and harder to find. The little mini sits a-top the little stock pot! So cute!
"The True JOY of Christmas"
I created the adorable Christmas album below as a gift for my sister. I was so pleased how it turned out for her. 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 hat and although you can't see it, he is also wearing a scarf!
This is the sock monkey I had Lynn of "Handmade Creations by Lynn", to make for my granddaughter. I made a flower for her head and a cute tu-tu for her to wear. I love how she has turned out :o) I think Jasmine will love her too don't ya think?!
There is absolutely no way that I can settle down long enough to put into words all the change and emotions I am and have been experiencing over the past two weeks! So, for now, I am just going to share a little with you.
I have less than one week now before I move to the Raleigh area with my hubby and grandson! I know! This simple sentence in no way explains anything at all! I have a sister and her family who live in the area. I have an Aunt, an Uncle, three cousins, who live in the area, not to mention nieces and nephews who have grown into young adults without me. Two of my grandchildren live there as well.
Lifetime of a story put short? My husband and I have lived away from home and family since we were first married and this December we will have been married for 32 years! I know! A whole 3/4's of a lifetime! LOL! We have been apart due to his job in the area for almost 18 months only seeing each other on the weekends. But two weeks ago we decided we were not waiting on the …
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!
