Entry #14 - match book brag album

Match book mini "brag" book album for my Aunt who just became a grandma for the first time!! sorry about the sideways picture, couldn't get the picture to load properly...
Looking down from the top - envelopes form the pockets. (love the dollar store!)

the inside....
each card has a spot for a picture on one side (I used double sided tape) a place for notes on the back of each card.

Entry #12 - Mini origami fold album for Dad

Dad headed back for Thailand - I put this book together for him in about 4 hours which is amazing for me. I have only created about 4 four scrapbook pages during my entire scrapbooking career most of my layout ideas are in my head. For this book, I purchased a Martha Stewart extra large (I think 24" x 24") sheet of paper - chocolate brown - from Michael's for $3.00. I am happy with how it turned out. I journalled in White pen in the blank spaces. A couple more hours would have made a huge difference, but deadlines.... haha!!

These are the inserts: We each wrote a message to Grandpa on one

Entry #4

Here are a couple of spinner cards I made.... (My new favorite thing to make - for now).

I made this birthday card for my Aunt... the adorable little bird stamp I bought here for $1.00 it's so cute. The little bird spins and rolls all the way through the opening.

I made this card for my cousin's 15th wedding anniversary. The little hippo was so cute, just couldn't pass it up. It spins and rolls across the opening like the bird in the above card.
