WISH Journal

Hi Everyone
Hope you all are having a lovely Wednesday. I have been very busy with work lately and haven't had much crafting time. But I wanted to share with you this WISH journal I made.
I just fell in love with this paperstack from K&Co. when I saw it. It is the Nature stack and all of the pages inside the stack coordinate. I used one of the $1 stamps from Michaels and coordinating ribbon for the bow. I took a $1 journal from the $1 bins and turned it into this beautiful little notebook. I also used Art Philosophy for the cut with the butterfly in it. I just love this Cartridge. I bought the butterfly, it was part of the matching accessories.
Here is what the journal looked like before it's transformation.

LIFE Mini Album

Hi Fellow Crafty Crafters!

I hope you all are enjoying your Tuesday as much as I am. I am so excited today because Jinger Adams is having her design team call over at Jinger's Blog, and I decided to make this mini album to apply for the team.
 I found this gorgeous K & Company paperstack at Joann's and I just had to use it. But you know when you get a paperstack and only some of the papers are cute? Well every page in this book was so awesome I knew I had to make an album to enjoy every page! LOL!

This is a 6 x 6 Mini Album
I just love the butterflies on this front cover. I used Art Philosophy for the circle cut and the butterfly is from of the coordinating accessories from K & Company. The paperstack is called Nature.
I thought this paper was so beautiful, I tried not to decorate it too much because I did not want to cover up the original design.
I put a pocket on this 1st page for memorabilia and left a photomat on the other side. I also used Art Philosophy for these pages.

Some of this paper was so hard to cover because it is so beautiful!
I got that cute little envelope from a SMASH swap I was in, and I thought it just looked so awesome on this page.
This is the back page of the album. So what did you think? Isn't this paper just gorgeous!

Hi there!

I know I am a little late on sharing these SMASH book pages but I thought now is better then never. LOL! Ok all joking aside, I have been really busy with work sinc Tax Season started but the good news it there are only 6 more long yucky weeks! LOL! But I will be back to normal then with more frequent posts.

I was in a SMASH swap with some of my Canadian Circle Friends and I wanted to share the pages I made to go to them. I did receive pages in return, but I do not have permission from the all yet to share them.
We made pages that were 5.5 x 8".
This is the front page of a 2 page layout. I made the tag with the CM Tag punch, and the white paper is a tab to put on the edge of the page.
We are all in the Circle so I thought it would be fun to make a circle page we could all SMASH. This is a double page layout. I used the Cricut Everyday cartridge and my imagine and filled in all the circle heads with different imagine cartridges and shades of pink.
This is the back side of my page. I used the CTMH stamp set 10 Things, added a pocket to the page and a decorative paperclip.
I hope you like it. I made 10 of these to swap with and in return got 10 pages back from everyone. It was actually a lot of fun making these for everyone and then seeing all the wonderfully talented ladies works of art sent back to me.

Baby Banner

Happy Saturday everyone,

Hope you all are having an awesome Saturday. I have to work today, but I wanted to share with you all a baby banner I made a couple of weeks ago at a crop I went to. I have been really busy with work lately and haven't had a lot of crafting time, so I was so excited to finish a project. LOLs!

I made this banner with the trusty coasters I love to get at Michaels. I also used the New Arrival and Birthday Bash cartridge for the cuts. I used DCWV Baby cardstock for the paper to cover the coasters with. I just love how it turned out and thought these would be perfect for my friend who are prego right now.

Come back Monday, I am sharing some pictures of some SMASH pages I made for a SMASH swap I was in.
