Newborn Baby Grant Mini Album

I made this little mini album for one of my client's little newborn baby boy Grant.  I ran out of my stash of baby mini albums I had made to have on hand.  I had decided I was going to make them as needed, afterall pregnancies do last a  This way they are special and made just for them.  I really only make projects that I need at the time.  If I have them on hand there is nothing really special about them. 

In the past I have always used my Cricut to cut out a stork and newborn in a diaper to put on the front of the mini album and of course stickle the heck out of them.  I decided to try just using some chipboard embellies and no stickles!  It turned out cute and quite different than one's I have given my new Mommie client's in the past.  It works out great since many are onto babies 2 and 3.  It also gave me a good excuse to start using some of the Debbie Mumm paper and chipboard I got at Jo Ann's eons ago (at full price..yikes...I did get some new stash at 70% off..yippee)  I still have an abundance of toity rolls too.  I entered this little mini album into the following challenges:


Here's what I used to create this little mini album that all came from my stash, most of it eons old:

  • Cricut & Gypsy to cut out double tags

  • Cuttlebug and embossing folders

  • Inkadinkado Clear Stamps

  • Dollar Store Charms

  • Marvy Tag Punch

  • Debbie Mumm Baby Boy Paper & Chipboard embellies

  • Big Bite, eyelets and ring

Birthday Party Purses

OMGosh this was soo hard not to really go to town on this project!!!!  I made this favor purse for Maddie's Birthday Party this Saturday as a prototype.  Since 8 & 9 year old's that have never crafted are making these I had to keep it simple...yikes.  Somebody better hide the Stickles!  Since I love my Cuttlebug I had to emboss the flowers, sorry Jamie I had to do it.  Plus the kids will love using it.  I feel like an addict that needs her fix...I know that I can't use or do anything the girls may not be able to do...Oh my, oh my, it is sitting at my craft desk in desperate need of more attention, distressing, some  I promised my daughter Jamie I would keep it simple. Boy that's harder than I thought it would be.  I will definitely add to it as soon as the party is over.

The girls will all be making and decorating their purses at the party.  They can take home their party loot in them.  Even though it is pretty plain, it turned out cute.  I had to use my 12 X 24 Cricut cutting mat to make them big enough.  Too bad they don't make pattern paper that size.   The girl's will be able to use many of the punches,  and my long lost felt stickers to decorate.   I will dig out any old neglected stash too.   I entered this Plain Jane into the following challenges:
Here's what I used to create this purse:
  • Cricut, Gypsy & Forever Young Cart to cut out Purse Pattern
  • Cuttlebug and Embossing Folder
  • Handmade with Love Stamp
  • Martha Stewart Double Punch
  • Marvy Flower & Scallop Punch
  • Butterfly Wire Ribbon
  • Velcro
  • Long Lost Flower Felt sticker

I reinforced the inside of the drawer's with some extra cardboard (cereal boxes).  I broke out some really old stash that I forgot I even had, the Tim Holtz hardware, the dragon charm and the cute little purse.  I gave the purse a little designer touch by adding a little  Dragon Charm ( he goes with the card) and a little tiny tag..  The purse can still open for storage too.  I am sure my Mom will find some little keepsakes to store into this  sweet creation.  I entered this into the following challenges:

  • Cricut, Gypsy to cut circles, scallop

    Digging for Worms Card

    I just love how this card turned out.  The Lilly Boo Digi was the inspiration for this card.  I am glad I added the diaper fold pouch.  I wasn't sure at first how it would fit in.  I plan  on putting some real gummy worms inside the pouch just before I give it to my grandson for his Birthday.  The worms will tie in perfectly!  I can hardly wait.  I paper pieced his shirt and pants.  He is a all boy and loves to get muddy, play with frogs, snakes and  I entered this card into the following challenges:
