Thanks for visiting!

Welcome! This is the place where I share my artsy and crafty projects. I am an evolving artist these days ... finding myself enjoying less of the cards and mini albums that I have made for years, and turning to art journaling and more artistic endeavors. I have always enjoyed some craft or other, and some of my earliest memories of my mother helping me make paper dolls and other crafts. I am now in my 60's and finding myself more passionately enjoying creating beautiful things and learning new skills and techniques and products.

While you are here I hope you will find inspiration and ideas for making your own projects, however any images or projects you find here are my personal property and should not be used for your own monetary gain, or for contests or challenges. Thank You!


Authentique 'Lively' Mini Album for Altered Angel

Hi there!  I've been wanting to share this mini album with you for a while, but never got around to editing the photos until now!   I made this very pretty mini album for 'my' LSS ... Altered Angel!   I am so overjoyed to be on the Design Team for Altered Angel, and love being in the store and seeing people looking at my projects.  It is very gratifying to have people come to me and say they love my work!

Anyway, I want to show you this mini album that I made for the store using Authentique Paper's new 'Lively' collection.  This is a picture heavy post, so watch out!

Front Cover

Pages One and Two

Close up of Page Two

Pages Three and Four

Close up of page four ... I used the 'hinge' stickers to make the hinge for the flip mat.

Pages Five and Six ... Page Six is actually made up of two 'envelope' pages, one facing/opening toward you, and one facing/opening away from you.

Close-up of Page Six ... it is a tri-fold envelope with space for three pictures.

Close-up of pages seven and eight.

Close up of page seven tri-fold envelope page.

Close up of pages nine and ten.  Page ten has a large flip mat for three pictures.

Pages eleven and twelve.

Pages thirteen and fourteen.

Back cover.

And just a photo of the mini album on the shelf at Altered Angel, along with the Authentique Paper goodies.
