"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?!
I believe in my heart that the anger and revolt that people are voicing in the social media groups, in protest marches, in truly very small ways are simply trying to convey as do I the words that here to follow. Though extremely simple, I believe it is how most of us truly feel.
My heart feels such great sadness and such heaviness to see this country, the place that I have called home for all of my life, turn into a place that I can barely recognize any more. Considering that true, honest, hard working, Americans have sacrificed so very much for the freedoms that we see being taken from us by our own government, no less, on a daily basis. And with each new election of government offices we find ourselves governed by those who work against the further building of this once great, unified nation, but rather they only seek to tear down all that is good, and honorable. Stomping under their own feet the blood, sweat, agonizing tears of loss that help to build this country to the great nat…
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!
