army accordian album

This album came out pretty cool I think! I made this to send to Rodney's mother for Christmas. Just thought I'd surprise her and send it. It has photos for the last year. From dec 2008 to Dec 2009. There are photos and captions on both sides of the album. I have entered this in the following challenges: Penny's Challenges, Creative Inspirations CB, Strap and Stamp, and Practical Scrappers. (it's not christmasy, but is a christmas gift-hope it counts...)

Accordian photo albums

These two albums are exactly the same, just different color ribbon. I made these for some of my neighbors. The theme I was going with these are to look like "packages" Hence the brown paper bag, and the star shaped stamp paper. They are military spouses I am giving them to. I used cereal boxes, paperbags, ribbon, and colored cardstock. Very simple project. I actually made 3 tonight, but I'm saving the last for another post, as I'm going to add photos to it for my husbands mother. I entered these in the following challenges: Penny Challenges, Creative Inspirations challenge blog, Stamp, scrap, & Doodle Saturdays!

reindeer crossing

This card I used die cuts, stamps, ribbon, and liquid glass. I think it's cute, but something seems off. Maybe I should have used different color ribbon? Unsure what it is. This has been entered in Crazy 4 challenges, Practical Scrappers, Secret Crafter, and Simon Says.


Really simple card. I thought the little christmas cookies saying was cute. Use liquid glass to make cookies and gingerbread stand out more. Entered this card in Practical Scrappers.


Snow is deffinitly not something here in North Carolina, nor is it something I even care to see again, but making cards about it is fun! This card is entered in a few challenges. Simon Says, secret crafter, and crazy 4 challenges.

snowman and wintertree

This card I used CTMH stamps, ink, and liquid glass. I think this is the first card that I didn't "glue" something on. At first I thought it to be kind of "naked" but I don't think its so bad now. Entering this card in Tuesday Taggers. It's not a decorated christmas tree, but a tree in christmas weather. Hope that counts!


This weekend I expanded my crafting past paper. I took a 3 hour class a few weeks ago to learn to make jewelry. So I bought some stuff from wal-mart this week and went to work. Both of these happen to be gifts for my neighbors. I'm entering this in the challenge over at Creative Inspirations challenge blog. Sorry the picture didn't turn out so well. Very cool in person tho!
