Buzz and Bumble meet Kraft cards!

 This book pattern is from the  Scholastic WSOTH Bonus project, which can be found on my web site. Buzz and Bumble papers were very easy to work with on this project. I only used the basic spine and pages, then created my own layouts. Click on the above link to make your book!

I tucked a tag into each pocket. *I still need to decorate the tags.

Our new alcohol based  markers are great for coloring in the stamped images!

Need mini layout ideas? Try the new Make it From Your Heart pattern book.

Glitter Glam!

Spring Break!!

Spring Break at California Adventure! Yesterday's goal: How many times can I ride Racer's  (as a signal rider-only way to go on that ride) in an hour?!  Answer: two times in 30 min.... then my husband almost had to pull me to another ride!  Guess it was not his goal  too. LOL!!!! We had a wonderful day together in both parks.

The zip strips sure came in handy with our dog Nick's photos. (How can you go wrong with  Beagle photos! LOL!).This is a very simple layout using  straight cuts, one AP cricut cut and some sponge "daugher-ing". This is a combo of layouts from the Make it From Your Heart book.

another type of Envelope Accordion Album

Any time is a good time to make a few extra gifts for loved one's...or your self!  :o)
This album only took 5  6" x 8" envelops that were in my stash. Any size envelope will do to make a good size album to hold photos & journaling for any event. Just fold a few inches on one end and adhere to the long end of the next. This forms your accordion. Add chip board covers and you are set.
