Birthday Card 0002

Most of the components of this card are from design company My Mind's Eye.  I have been collecting (hoarding) 6x6 paper pads.  I enjoy using them for creating cards because I'm not so overwhelmed with a huge 12x12 sheet.

Congratulations Card 0001

Pebbles, Inc. by American Crafts has quickly became one of my favorite paper crafts design companies.  The polaroid card is from their "From Me to You" collection.  

A 12 x 12 sheet contained 12 cards.  I cut them all out and used them for cardmaking.  They could have easily fit any pocket scrapbooking album.

Mail Tag #2

I started to compile a list of questions to ask my penpals.  I created some themes to keep me organized to come up with new questions.  I came up with the following structure:

1.  Future
2.  History
3.  Food
4.  Current
5.  Favorites / Least Favorite

Wedding Card 0002

I created this simple card based on the wedding cake sticker that I found in my stash.  I used the circle to highlight the bits of teal in the wedding cake.

Travel Albums

I wanted to put together an album for all of the travels that my husband and I have experienced together.  We have been together for 7+ years.  To complete this task I'd have to backtrack 7+ years of photos and memories.  I was up to the challenge!  

I wanted the album to have some scrapbooking essence. Traditional scrapbooking has always overwhelmed me and I had several unfinished albums to show for it.  I had created some small (7" x 9") upcycled journals.  Each album had 25 sheets.  I was going to incorporate 2 year's worth of travels into each album.  I kept seeing Project Life in my Instagram feeds and loved the idea of journaling cards.  I created a more simplified version without the pocket sleeves.
