Checking in from Summer

WOW I can't believe its been almost a month since I posted.  I have a backlog of projects to post but we have been busy this summer at the trailer we just got and I have no internet access there.  To top it off we have been transforming the add a room so that I can scrapbook in it.  Happy to say that got finished last weekend so this weekend I can relax and work on some stuff (even if I just edit photos to post when I get back).

My downstairs craft area was an absolute disaster from the kids latest projects so I decided after cleaning and putting stuff away a sketch would be a great place to start.  Here is the sketch



and here is my take on it




Supplies used:  DCWV French Country Stack, DCWV Pastel Stack, Unity PH Stamps, Spellbinders Blossom 2, Spellbinders Floral Flourish

I love Big Books and I can not lie

I just love this stamp from Unity, I bought it specifically for the end of year teacher gifts.  My daughter helped make the cards as well and I had to explain the joke to her.  Not sure my husband apprciated me teaching "the song" to my seven year old daughter.  Finally got the mini albums done and these went with them.  I will post a picture and video of the albums later but for now I need to get ready for a nice long weekend.

My Little Jumping Bean

Phew its been a busy couple of weeks, I am making 4 mini albums for end of school projects and have been busy with that but I wanted to post some of my son's baby album as well.  This was based on a sketch but I am happy with how it turned out.  He just loved the jolly jumper and when ever he was in it my cat would get in on the action for some extra attention (he loves getting pets in any manner, silly kitty).  I made a slide out journalling pocket on the right side and used my creative page tabs to make a tab pull.

Spellbinders Card Box Purse

Here in Canada the kids are still in school till the end of June and I have been busy with teacher gifts.  I am incredibly lucky that both of my kids have great teachers and great afterschool care but the downside is that I need to make a lot of gifts.  I plan on giving the secreatary a nice set of cards and I wanted something nice to put them in so I made a card purse.  I think these purses are so much fun to make and look so cute.  The cards are still a work in progress (I just can't find a design I like that, I can also mass produce).  I cut the strap out of felt using a spellbinders border die and used the A2 Bracket Border die to decorate the front.
