"Happy Halloween"

This is a mini album that I created for a silent auction that my sister-in-law is having the beginning of October. The proceeds will go to American Cancer Society. She is having the silent auction at a Highland Games event that my brother-in-law is heading up and competing in called "Throwing for the Cure".

base of mini: paper bags
cardstocks: miscellaneous
patterned papers & clear stickers: Reminisce
glitter glue: Creative Cafe, Studio G
ribbons: Michaels brand, Joann's brand, Sheer Narrows
spider accent: Sakura Stardust pen

I'm going to attempt to create a Fall/Autumn mini album for the silent auction as well. It will all depend on if I have the time to finish it or not. Wish me luck! :)

vintage mini album

I am sharing some sneak peeks of a vintage mini album I made for Rosie, my partner in the Vintage/Distressed Mini Album Swap on the cricut.com messageboard.

I am waiting for Rosie to receive it before I share the full pictures. I don't want to totally spoil the surprise.

sneak peeks for GIBBS 4

These are a couple of sneak peeks for the GIBBS 4 swap on the Cricut.com messageboard. This round involved decorating a paint can (my first ever) and filling it with at least 2 "made" items and some bought items.

The above sneak peek is of the 2nd "made" item for my partner, Tammy. You can view the 1st "made" item ... just scroll down to the August 2nd post.

The can is very basic. I used K & Company paper and the fiber is from one of the $1 bins at Michaels that I inked up a bit.

anniversary card

This is an anniversary card that I made for my brother-in-law and his wife.

All of the paper and the chipboard embellishment are from Teresa Collins' Crush line. The ribbons are from Offray.

The scalloped piece in the corner is cut from one of the papers. It's great when you can use the papers as an embellishment.

I attached one of the matching chipboard pieces to the scalloped piece and tucked the ribbon underneath.

The sentiment is cut from another piece of paper from the Crush line as well.

birthday card

This is a birthday card I made for my brother-in-law's girlfriend.

I used My Mind's Eye glittered papers. I cut the diamond piece from one of the papers for a little oomph. I tied a piece of Offray ribbon around it before adhering it to the other paper.

sneak peek for GIBBS 4

I made this item for Tammy in the GIBBS 4 paintcan swap on the Cricut messageboard. I can't share the whole project just yet because we haven't traded our paintcans.

Tammy likes Little Yellow Bicycle and I like Little Yellow Bicycle so I knew I would use their paper on one of her projects. I used their Vita Bella line for this project.
