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!


Watch Us Wednesday ... Tutorial for The Kraft Journal

I love when it is my week to share a tutorial with the folks over at The Kraft Journal!  It gives me a chance to show a project in a more in-depth way, and share it with you here on my blog.  This week I have shared a fun mini-album that is most likely the smallest and easiest one I have ever made!  Here is a picture ...

and here are the inside views ...

Binding ... so EASY!

The album measures only 2 1/4" x 3 3/4" by about 1 inch thick.  The 'pages' are made from #778 Mini Lunch Bag Kraft Envelopes.  I simply punched three holes in the end of each envelope after I had adhered the patterned paper from Pebbles, Inc.  The tags inside are #963 Small Brown Kraft Shipping Tags, and are tied with #958 Twill Tying Tape in Natural.  I simply threaded small lengths of the twill tape through the holes in the tags and stapled the tape to the tags. 

Please check out the full tutorial at The Kraft Journal for all the easy steps ... did I say it was a very EASY mini album to make???  Thanks for stopping by today!  Blessings,
