Back to School

Here's a clipboard I made for my daughter's teacher. I think it makes a cute gift.

All new website - up and running

I've just updated my website to help make it more user-friendly. There are a lot more samples and easier navigation. I hope I will get lots of good response from it. Wish me luck!

All About Me Mini Album

I just found these pictures of a mini album I did a while ago. It is so much fun with all the tags and ribbons.

Me and my Studio

I finally found a moment with a clean desk today, so I figured it was a good opportunity to show everyone where I work. I just moved into this new studio about a year ago and I love it! There is lots of natural light and plenty of space to work. Behind me you can get a little glimpse of my cardstock and ribbon. And of course, my sewing machine. There are rolling racks under my table full of patterned paper. You can't quite see my computer, printer, and die cut machines in the other corner. The file cabinets hold many of my embellishments. On the other side of the room are my bookshelves full of scrapbooks. It's a great space for all my craft projects.

Football Layout

football layout I just finished this layout for a customer. Metal dog tags to spell out the name with a metal bookplate in the bottom corner for the date. The ghost arrow pointing to the mat might be hard to see in the picture, but it will be great when the pictures are added. This layout will fit two verticle 4x6 pictures or one horizontal 4x6 or 5x7. The letters in the circles are pop-dotted with a special glossy finish added.

Italy Layout

This is one of the layouts that goes with the Italy mini book. I'll attach the mini book to a layout like this one in my album for those who want to see even more pictures!

Italy Mini Book

Here's what I've been working on lately- a mini book for our recent trip to Italy. It has a tab for each of the places we visited. It's a paperbag book, so it has lots of pockets for all the photos that my hubby took. I also included postcards, tickets, and my journaling for what we did each day. Below you can see one of the chipboard tags I made to fit inside the pockets. Photos on one side and journaling on the back. This mini book is a great way to save lots of pictures in a compact space. And the pockets allow you to pull out more.
