Mini Album

Yes, I am still alive. You must all be wondering since it's been a little while.
Todays item came from a YouTube video done by Joann McKenzie on how to make a paper bag album to hold your ATC cards. It's an old one from 2008, but I just came across it the other day. If you want to take a look, you can find it here
I've just adapted the idea to make a mini album.

The cover

The inside
On the inside there are pages for 10 wallet size photos and a journalling spot so you can add details about the picture and the date. I've even added the photo mounting squares so that all the recipient has to do is add the photo and jounalling.
If you would like any deets on the sizing or how I bound it together just let me know.
Thanks for looking!

Happy Mother's Day!

Wow, two posts in one day! (That's only because I have to go and see my Mom tomorrow!)
To all the mother's out there (and that includes mothers to our furry, feathered, etc. "kids") I wish you all a wonderful day!
I've been hard at work on my own Mom's card and gifts and this is what I've come up with.
The card
A candle
And a coaster to set it on
Fridge magnets
A keychain
And a gift bag to hold it all!
If you're looking at this--Happy Mother's Day Mom!

Summer Mini

Woo hoo! The Summer Mini is here!
Even though I'm excited about it, I haven't even ordered anything from it yet.
Why??? you ask. Well...I made a huge order for myself for the first quarter, and I can't afford anything else until next month. Oh well, at least the anticipation is enjoyable. Also, June is my birthday month, so I'll get that extra discount from SU--more anticipation!
I'll be doing a few local craft fairs this summer and this is what I've come up with to hold my business cards on the table. 

It's just one of those acrylic frames from the dollar store with a hand made insert. The faux leather box on the front is just attached with sticky strip. Looks like it will hold about 30 or so cards.
In my office supply store they have a brochure rack that will hold about 5 cattys, so I have to pick one up before the first show. I'll just make sure to have a box of them so that I can replenish!
