A Second Album for Kris' sister...Lucky Grandmother...


 Here are pictures of the 2nd album I made for my sister.
It is the G45 collection "Mother Goose".
                             


This one uses the same papers I used for her grandsons album & his memory box.


I added a little metal charm to the ribbon on the front.I also used Kathy Orta's hidden hinge technique to hold the pages in the album.  
  
 
    

I got carried away and this album has 20 pages.n

Life in a MN Winter...

A new MDS Challenge for Monday.  We are to use the three colors; Night of Navy, Coastal Cabana & Pistachio.  My thoughts were with our grandkids in the MN winter today, as this is the third day in a week that school has been closed state-wide. Grankids, Griffin & Tanner painted a birdhouse with Grandma Sandy and I imagined the birds fleeing to the woods off in their backyard...

Coffee & Friends

Sandy joined an MDS (My Digital Studio) challenge with a few bloggers. Always trying to keep those dendrites humming!!!  AND having fun.

A Keepsake Scrapbook by Kris

Kris &  Mat's son, Mat & Sheri purchased a house so Kris made this housewarming gift. A keepsake scrapbook for them to update throughout the years of remodeling and creating memories.

Kris had to use the smaller Cricut machine to cut pieces as her new Cricut Expression was defective and is still waiting for a replacement. Grrr.

Baby Gifts Kris Made... Ooohhh So Pretty & Priceless!

This is the project I made for my niece & nephew's baby shower. It is a Keepsake Box. It is made from chipboard & card stock. The box design is from Kathy Files at Paper Phenomenon. The class is offered at Annie's website.


The supplies I used are:
Bazzill cardstock
Me & My Big Ideas baby girl patterned paper stack
Ribbons from Joann's
Drawer pull by Tim Holtz
Letter "b" from The Paper Collage
Flocked bear from Darice
Purple rattle from "Dress It Up"
