Vintage Chipboard Mini Album

ok, here is the complete slide of the mini Chipboard Album I just finished. It would be great for baby photos or a little girls' photos. All photos were attached with repositionable adhesive, so you can take them off, and place your own photos without any damage to the pictures or the album. Or you can use the album as decoration or a conversation starter. A perfect gift for a vintage lover. Enjoy!!

I will be selling it at my Etsy shop, so be sure to come by if you are interested. The link in on the right column.

Fireproof your Marriage!

hi Everyone,

If you haven't seen yet you need to get a copy and watch FIREPROOF. While it is a Christian movie it has a very contemporary message. It basically portrays the struggle of this married couple that life and its busyness has got a hold of and they realize that they have lost touch and because they are not "feeling in love" they assume they are not in love so they must get a divorce. The husband gets a copy of a book that dares him to Love his wife for 40 days and see what Real Love can do.

I bought the DVD and watched it last night. I also bought the book The LOVE Dare. I began reading it on line and I just knew I had to get it.

Unlike the main lady in the movie I have a wonderful husband. I really cannot complain. My husband is patient, kind, gracious, sensitive, my best friend and I could go on and on... :) So, I don't have any complaints about him, but I needed to get the book because I don't know how to love like I Corinthians 13 say I should.

Although I am a Christian, and God has done a marvelous work in my life, I still sin. God has really got a hold of my heart about not loving my children like I should. Every time I am angered, impatient, unkind, I am sinning. Jesus has compared being angry to committing murder and the reality is that I am doing just that every time I direct a harsh word to one of my children.

So, anyway, I bought the book and I am doing the Love Dare to my children.

I have been meditating on the Love subject for over a week now and I created some Vintage cards with that theme in mind. I believe that Real Love Passes the Test of Time. Love will stand by you through thick and thin, through ugly and pretty, sickness and health until death. Love will keep on loving in spite of.

I pray that you will stop and consider the people that have loved you unconditionally, the ones who stood with you in the midst of the ugliness of life. Those people are precious ones sent by God to help you in time of trouble. Don't forget to love them back! :)

Enjoy the cards!! :)

Blog Candy Alert: Basic Grey goodness!!

Hi everyone, weekend is just starting!! Woke up this morning to our first real cold temperature: our pool is frozen!! I am glad I live in the South of the United States. Our winter is short compared to other parts of the country and we rarely see snow where I am at. I am a tropical gal, I don't like winter snowy days!! They look great in the movies but not in real life. It's really cold!!!

Anyway, just wanted to give a shout out to another blog candy. Kim is a very talented lady and she is giving some Basic Grey goodness. Go check it out HERE.

Have a beautiful weekend and don't forget to visit MY OTHER BLOG for some blog candy too!! :)

NEW PAris Cards and a custom order for Chandelier cards!!!

I cannot make up my mind if I like digital or physical card making and scrapbooking so I have decided that I am a HYBRID one!! LOL That means I like to mix things up and use a little of both.

Take a look at the new cards I have created using digital and physical embellishments. Be sure to click on the image to see it enlarged and all the details.

These are available HERE.

I created a chandelier card a couple of months ago specially for my Pastor and his wife to thank them for the time they took with me and my husband when we did The Path together.

What a sweet surprise when she called me last week and asked me to make her a set to give as a gift to one of her friends. So I did. But instead of just making them exactly the same, I made each one in a different accent color. I wanted to add a little fun to the old formula. :)

Got to go put the baby back to napping. :)

Bridesmaid Wedding Custom Made Scrapbook page

I have been creating Bridesmaids' thank you cards and invitations for a while now and I have this desire to make a scrapbook page for the ladies. The thing is: although I am married and had a wedding I never had bridesmaids. :( So, I had the idea of offering my services to create a Custom Made Wedding Scrapbook page. It could be for any part of the wedding, really. I just want to try my techniques and style on a wedding page.

So I created a fun listing on Ebay. If you are interested, got some wedding photos that need scrapping please go check it out, or contact me through the EMAIL button on the right! The listing is HERE.

I also finally listed the DIVA layout. So if you have been waiting for it. Check my Ebay listings on the right side.

I have been working on some Save the Dates recently. They turned out so gorgeous. I will post them this weekend and list them.

The Christmas photos from the Opryland Hotel I never got a chance to post them. Is anybody still interested in seeing them???? If I don't get any comments on the subject, I will just wait until next December to post them. :)

The Vintage Baby Book I will post tomorrow. :)

I am working on 200 Save the Dates for a friend from church and I am trying to get them done to deliver them this Sunday.

Have a beautiful weekend and don't be shy and say HI so I know you stopped by!! :)

Vintage Chipboard Baby Girl Book and Guest Book

Hi everyone,

It's shipped!! I don't know about you crafters out there, but I get as much joy out of a finished project as of starting one. I finished the Baby book and the Guest book for a new customer that loves everything vintage. I shipped the package today and I just can't wait to hear back from her.

In the meantime, here is a peek of both books together. I will post photos of the Baby book tomorrow. So please come back. :)

I am working on a custom order for Parisian cards today! :)

Have a blessed day!!

Vintage Guest Sign up Chipboard Book for Baby Shower.

I had a request to create a Vintage Guest Sign up Book for a customer's first Baby Shower. She is expecting a Baby Girl and loves everything vintage. I talked to her briefly on the phone and quickly perceived that every little detail was very important to her.

Below you will see the photos of the Guest Book. There are lots of stamping, layering, as well as satin ruffles that I created with ribbon. On the insides of the front and back covers I created pockets that can be used to tuck in cards or other keepsakes from the Shower. I am pretty happy with the way it turned out. I hope she likes it too. :)

This is my second guest book and I think I will be making others in the future. It was really fun to make. :)

I also created a Baby Book that coordinates with the Sign up Book. I will post photos of it another day.

Enjoy and feel free to leave me a comment. :) Have a beautiful week!!
