Fairy Birdcage Mini

This album is 10 x 5. I used K&Company Brenda Walton Designer Paper. The idea for the album came from all the beautiful birdcage albums and the adorable captured fairy bottles I've seen on YouTube. The birdcage is from a scal file I downloaded and altered. The Fairies I cut out are from post cards I found at a used book Store. They are from the Flower Fairy Collection by Cicely Mary Barker.

Mini Album for my Sister

My sister has a beautiful home, but her yard is a little paradise. She has flowers, an amazing waterfall pond and a vegetable garden. She loves gardening and working in her yard. She even keeps the seed packets and tags that come with plants so I thought I would make her a mini to put her pictures in and pockets for her seed packets and tags. It's 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 and I used K&Company Watercolor paper.

Halloween Mini Album

This album was made by request from a very special 7 year old boy who selected the paper and had some great ideas. He wanted a black cat, big pumpkin, haunted house and lots of bats.

Here are the sites for the svg files I used.

For Hayleigh - Once Upon a Time Mini Album

I made this mini for my adorable niece (she lives in another state - boohoo). She's not familiar with minis so I added some pictures to get her started. This album is 7"x5" and I used the DCWV Once Upon a Time paper.

My Reminder Book

I'm calling this my reminder version of the smash book. I was watching one of Kathryn's (Scrap Beach - ustream shows (love, love, love her shows) and decided to make one. I'm surprised how much I actually use it. I even have a "wish" section. It has things I've cut out of magazines that I'd like to have. :)

Shabby Chic Mini Album

My first attempt at "Shabby Chic". This is a real mini - it's 4 1/2" x 3 1/4". I made it with leftover paper I from my "smash book".

Where to put my paint?

I don't have a lot of space for crafting so I had to come up with a place to put my paint...I bought this unfinished at Joann's and painted it with brown and black acrylic paint.

Portrait of Chisai

Isn't she so cute! This is a painting of my sister's dog. I used My Studio acrylic paint, added a ribbon bow and some prima flowers that I also painted.
