"Report Card of Life" Mini Album

 This is another book I made from a kit purchased from "The Button Farm".  I bought it in March of 2011…and just now got around to putting it together.  It was so much fun to do!!!
 I took a few liberties with their patterns, but for the most part, this is what they designed.  I created a pocket with the page on the right, so that I could put a journaling tag behind it.

I created this last page on the left.

This was a fun album to do.  It was simple, as the pages were chipboard covered with patterned paper, so there wasn't any page construction to do.  I had a ton of leftovers as well.  That is one of the things I love about "The Button Farm".  You have plenty of supplies to make their books, and then some leftover!  I used the leftovers to add more embellishments!

Stay crafty, my friends!

The Button Farm, June 2011, "No. 2" Album is done! (And an Update)

Good morning everyone!

I wanted to start out with the update first, then to the blog post.  My hubby and I are currently buying a new home!  We have a ton of work to do with all of the new home stuff, the old home stuff, moving, etc.  So…because I need to take a break from crafting and blogging, I will be posting some older projects that I have in my drafts, as new projects are not going to be done right now.  (Although I can't wait to post new projects for my new home!!!)  There may be a little longer gaps in the posting, but rest assured, I will be back as soon as I possibly can…as soon as I get settled into my


I hope I can get through the creative withdrawals without too much problem.  :(

OK, wish us luck, and now…on to the post for today!

I made this beautiful book from a kit I bought from The Button Farm.  I have been trying to put together some of my kits and get some stuff done!  I am a terrific craft supply hoarder, and need to get some things made!!!
 I made the pages almost exactly as the directions said, with a couple of my little changes.
This album used an existing album that is covered in different papers by Prima…Gorgeous!

Stay crafty, my friends!

Wreath Crazy!

 I had two SEI paper crafting kits sitting in my "To Do" box and decided that it was time to make them.  I needed some new wreaths for our door, and these are perfect, I will use the one above starting tomorrow, as it feels "springy" to me.
This one is bold and colorful, and it feels like summer to me.  It was supposed to have a chalkboard banner across it that said "Welcome", but the hot glue gun and the banner did not get along.  So, I decided to bling it up with some Recollections gems.  I like how it turned out!

Stay crafty, my friends!

ARC May Pages to Share

I just thought that you would like to see what I did with my decorations on last month's weekly planner pages.  I do love this ARC planner, and I am having fun with the decorating!
I used stickers by Simple Stories and some Washi tape on this page.  The flag came out of a Basic Gray  mini scrapbook.
 I discovered skinny washi tape for this page.  I also used some Simple Stories stickers.
 Simple Stories seems to be a theme…this page is also decorated with their stuff.
 This is a COOL page!  I was playing around with my Silhouette Cameo machine, learning to make stickers.  I created all of these, and they cut out PERFECTLY!!!  I just did random shapes, learning how to make them, use fills, etc.  I had fun!
 This page was just random stuff, with, again, Simple Stories stickers.  I had a hard time with inspiration on this one.  Maybe next week.  Sometimes you get ideas, sometimes you don't. The next weeks page is already way cuter than this one!  HAHAHA!

Stay crafty, and organized my friends!!!
