Purse Album

Hi everyone,

I was asked by a co-worker to create a scrapbook album for someone we work with who is leaving to study for another career.

This person is a bling, glam and girly-girl human so no way could I just make a simple scrapbook!

Check out the Purse Album!

This project is now in my top 10 of fav's! I didn't have a pattern but I did watch a few you tube video's of similar nature.

Paper line is Echo Park, Fashionista Collection

Check out this you tube video to see the inside!

Moving forward with the times

After folks and HAPPY MOTHER's DAY!!

After much thought I've decided to not post in this forum any least for the next several months.

The traffic here is not large as most use instagram and facebook as avenues to view and comment on projects posted.

I was finding myself using a lot of time and energy in building posts unnecessarily.

I will leave this site up in case anyone wants to come by to view any past projects or posts.

If by demand there is a need to revert back I'll let you know.

So for now please make sure you follow me on facebook  and or Instagram.

Young Love

Today is all about that special someone in your life. Using the paper line Rossibelle from Prima it is very easy to create "love art".

The rose gold on the paper adds a shimmer and shine which highlights the photo.

Our son Joshua and his special someone, Evelyn

Additional details with die cut butterfly, stitching and some fussy cutting. Edges frayed slightly and inked with black soot.

Celebrating Graduates from StFX University

Have someone special celebrating graduation at StFX this year? I have just the card for you!

These cards were created using a total of  7 different die cuts, some cut multiple times and stacked, some cut from more then one element and then stacked. These types of cards are time consuming to make but well worth it in the end result! There is lots of dimension and texture that can't be shown from a photo.

Limited supply available so come to the Antigonish VON office (behind the Mall) to get yours before they are gone. Open from Mon-Fri 830-430 (closed from 12-1 for lunch).

I currently donate all the cards to the VON Community Support Programs so 100% of the proceeds go back into the community. Cards are $3.00 (includes envelopes) or 2 for $5.00.
