Christmas is almost here

I’ve been promising my niece and cousins scrapbooks for a couple of Christmases now. It looks like this year, I may actually come thru. The albums are well on their way to being completed. Let’s just hope I can get them all done!!

Albums in progress….



Wordbloom: IMAN

I’m so excited about this wordbloom! I just love the colors. When I saw these papers, I knew I had to use them for something and I think they really worked out well for this project.

This mini album is a gift that I made for my friend to give to his daughter. I hope she love it.

It’s Wedding Season

With it being wedding season, I’ve been busy. Here are some of the items I made. One wedding was my lovely friend Jeannine (who picked me as her MOH) and the other was a friend from work.

M.O.C.A Kisses, the Album

Yeah!!!!  I finally completed an album. I feel like I haven’t been able to scrap for some time now so I’m excited that I was able  to complete this.

The album is 6×6 closed, 12×6 open.  Some of the pages are 9×6 (3×6 and 6×6 closed) to show the pages behind them. The pages were folded in half and tiny holes punched at the top and bottom. I used thin, clear plastic string to bind the whole thing together

Materials: Little Yellow Bicycles Zach’s Life, Bazzill cardstock, American Craft letters










Always Be You

a 6×12 mini album i made for the craft fair. This line of papers is called Urban Cosmos

Tag, you’re it!

In preparation for a craft show, I became a little addicted to tag albums. The albums are 3×6, 7 pages front in back. I love that I can complete one in about an hour!! The make for perfect gift or brag albums.
