Wedding Gift

My nephew got married and I made this book for him and his new wife.

I used the Heidi Swapp Mirror book cover. I really enjoyed working with it. It was a bit intimidating at first. I wasn't sure how certain things would look on it, but I think it turned out well.

I fell in love with this line from "Little Yellow Bicycle". Just beautiful and full of textures. I also couldn't resist the embellishments that went along with it. I'm so glad I had a reason to buy it. LOL

Kitty Scrapbook

I made my daughter a scrapbook of all of the cats we have or have had, for her birthday. She had a wonderful reaction. She oohed and aahhed over each page. It reminded me of why I love scrapbooking, especially as gifts for others.

I intend to take pics of the layouts to show. It went pretty quickly since it was 8" x 8". But I did find that I had to print out my own pics in order to get them small enough to put more than 1 or 2 on a page. That was unfortunate since I had already paid to have 100 developed. Oh well, she can have a photo book, too, right. :)

Another Blast from the Past...

Well, since I am bringing up the past, I thought I would share a page I had published a few years ago. The publication was "Scrapbook Answers", April 2006 issue. Above is a scan of the article and below is a pic of the actual page.

I was so sad to see "Scrapbook Answers" go out of business. They included a CD in each issue with lots of info, fonts and clipart.

Oh well, at least I got my 15 minutes!

Revisit the Past

Well, I have been working my little fingers to the bone on projects for everyone else. And since they aren't mine, I don't have much to share with you. So I thought I would go back to the past and pull up some of my favorites. It's not likely you would have seen them.
