Mini Book

I saw a tutorial for a mini book on Split Coast Stampers. Here is the link info I liked the way the inserts folded out but wanted a different way to put the cover together. A very kind friend let me borrow her Zutter Bind it All and this is what I came up with. I made this book a few months ago and have since made many various styles with different bindings. The coil binding is my favorite so far. I have now added the Zutter to my Christmas list. I think I'll be making many more of these in the future. This one measures 4" x 4". They are addictive. I'm now working on a larger version.

Birthday In Blue...

Here is a Birthday card I came up with. I was trying out a bunch of different techniques on this one. I used a brayer, sponges, a bunch of different stamps, pop dots etc. I will try this with some other color combinations in the future.

My Messy Desk

I have to keep my craft room really neat. When I'm not in there working I have to put everything away, or Kit will get into it and that will come to no good. However, when I'm in there working it gets very messy and of course Kit wants to know exactly what I'm doing. Here she is checking out my very messy desk during one of my crafting sessions.

Another Christmas Card

I saw the layout for this Christmas card in Cardmaking & Papercraft Issue #46 (UK magazine from last Christmas). It was done with Shimmer spray. I decided to do my own version of it to see what I could come up with. Here is my take on the card.

Crazy few weeks...

It has been a little crazy around here the last couple of weeks. I had a big class of 20 to prep for and then there was the BC's Creative Expo on Nov. 7th and 8th. Anyhow I did manage to take a few photos of Kit during the madness and get one or two of my own projects done. The first pic is of Kit helping me prep for my class of twenty.

The next pic is of her attacking my Paper Trimmer.
