Good bye Owl Card

We said Good bye last week to a co-worker that has gone back to college!  I wanted to make him a card that would let him know we are really going to miss him!  I am not good at making masculine cards at all!!  Here is my attempt at a Good- bye owl card.  I used some Graphic 45 paper and of course, Stampin Up's owl punch.  That punch has to be one of my favorite!  This style of card is the Tri Fold card-another favorite.

 Here is a video of my 5 year old grandson, Ezra!  He has watched the videos on my blog and wanted to make one of his own.  He did pretty good for a first timer- only a few glitches!   I thought it was adorable!

Travel Vertical Bag Mini Album

I have just finished making another Vertical Mini Album Paper Album for a co-worker.  This one is centered around Travel.  I took my time on this album and added some die cuts and punch art for added interest.  I also made my own Chunky Charm for the 1st time!  This video is just a quick look at the pages of this album.  The instructions are from Ginger at My Sister's Scrapper!  She is fabulous!  
Have a fabulous day!

Birthday Mobile

I bought the Petal Cone die by Sizzix. It is perfect to make this type of mobile.  I wanted to make something different for my sister, Rochelle's birthday.  I thought a mobile would be fabulous!  I used 2 of  Martha Stewart's butterfly punches.  The largest butterfly die is from Memory Box.   The gems are from a flea market- I don't remember which one.   I glued 2 strips of 1/2 inch cardstock together.  I put random eyelets in the strip and then hung gold cording from each eyelet.  The strip was glued  to the underside of the mobile.    I loved making it for Rochelle- Her birthday is tomorrow but we got together today for her special day!

Here is a video I made to show you the movement of this birthday mobile.

Pocket Mini Album!

I made this album from the directions from Ginger at My Sisters Scrapper!  It was fun to make and easy too!  Ginger's instructions are always easy to follow!  Check out her blog for tons on inspiration and other great videos on making all kinds of different albums!
I am so proud of myself since I figured out how to add a note to my video!  I goofed on the type of die I used and didn't want to re-record this video.  I usually have so many ews & ahs that I have to record my video over again- this one didn't have too many.  So anyway-I found out how to add the note- it really was sooo easy!  Maybe I will add music next time???  I plan to give this album to a friend.  I really hope she will like it!  Mini albums are my new thing and I love, love making them!  My sister's and I are into making the charms that hang on the spine of the mini album.  Wow, who knew there were so many options for beads and charms!   I have a couple of birthday cards to make and I am working on a travel album and then I will try my hand at a Wedding album.  What fun! Did I mention I am on vacation!  This first week has flown by but I still have another week to go!  One project was a wonderful potting bench my husband built for me that I stained and painted!  I will have to share a picture on my next post. I also stained and painted a bench for our front porch.  I have really been busy working on these projects and just having fun!  Hope you have a fabulous day!
