Mini albums and tutus Oh my!

Hi everyone, I was not going to miss my monthly commitment to add something every month. I just started and already saying to myself, I'll get to it later well now this month is almost over so the time is now not later. But any how I have made 3 mini albums, really busy. And I made my granddaughter some no sew tutus, so cute and I cut out some fabric with the cricut. Not as easy as they say, but the tshirts came out nice. I used the iron on heat transfer, you have to use a practically new mat to get it to stick. Okay enough talking here are the pictures. Have a great day

Mini albums Quick and easy
Thes pics were taken with my phone some are small I don't know why hope you can still see them. This album I used bo bunny zoology paper. I used envelopes, sort of the matchbook album style.

This my less than $1o.oo mini album, I created using a DCWV mat stack and 2 12x12 sheets and 7 envelopes, and the cricut cartridge elegant edges. Very simple to make it can hold up to 26 photos.

Happy New Year

Well everyone its 2012 a new year for us all. I am sure everyone has made their resolutions this year. I did not make any I am going to try something different. Things that I need done this year I already started clearing out my craft room, this will take a while but I will get it done this year. I have purchase so much paper that I don't need or want anymore I will be donating it to goodwill or a school, somebody will get this stuff. I have to clear out my room so I can focus better. Me and my husband both said we want less. So we are only going to keep what we need. Once I clear out my craft room I will be shifting back to sewing, I used to love sewing. I am getting burnt out on paper. How much do we need? I haven't designed any jewelry in years, very little painting not the kind I enjoy mostly canvas. I haven't pick up a pencil to draw in years also. But this year I am going to do a little bit of all the things I enjoy not just scrapbooking. I am also going to design my own paper instead of purchasing a pack that I don't use. I want to make my own choices my own colors, buying paper pack does not allow that for me. Balance my life better, eat healthier, I will be sharing some of my recipes on my blog, so look for those with pictures. Happy New Year to everyone God Bless
