Merry Christmas to our Heroes!!

Have you seen the movie above?? It will bring joy to your heart. :)

As some of you may know I have made and sent some cards to our fellow heroes abroad. You can see some of the cards I have made in the past HERE, HERE and HERE. I haven't sent any in since I became pregnant, but I have been collecting cards that I plan to send in after Christmas. They can use cards all year long. Any theme, any type, any holiday, just because cards. Take a look at their website and blog (links below) for more information on the cards you can make.

Operation Write Home is an awesome organization that sends the cards to our heroes and they get to send some love to their loved ones here back home for free.

If you would like to help you can make cards too or donate money that goes into paying for shipping costs. Just click HERE to find out more!

Merry Christmas everybody!!

Couldn't say No.

This past week I received an email with a request for Bridal cards. As you know I am taking a little break due to my pregnancy and not taking any custom orders for Bridal cards, but I just couldn't say no.

The Bride lost her father when he was 48 years old and is having her 2 brothers walk her down the aisle. She also asked for a special card to give to her Step Dad to ask him to lead her on the Father Daughter dance. She also wanted the cards in time for Christmas!!! I know...short notice...but how could I say no???

An additional 4 bridesmaids cards were also made. I shipped them today and she should get them all in time for Christmas!!

Now I feel like Santa Claus!!! hahahaha :)

Enjoy your weekend.

Baby boy Custom Word Album

As I had promised I wanted to share with you some of the first pictures of a Custom Name Album I am working on. The Mom asked me to make one for each of her sons. The photos below is just the first step of very detailed work. This album is made of MDF and stands at 8" tall and it's almost 17" long. It is gorgeous to decorate a mantle or a dresser. I promise to share the final pictures when the album is ready.

Here is a photo with a 4.25x5.5" card in front of the album so you can visualize the actual size. Once the album is ready, all the recipient needs to do is add the photos to it.

If you would like a custom made album please email me. I love custom orders and they are always the perfect gift for that someone that has everything.

This past week I also had an exquisite request to put together a kit to create one of my vintage albums like the ones you see HERE and HERE. If I have enough time, I might create some unique kits and add them to my store. I will share this first one when I finish putting it together.

I hope you have a great week. :)

It's a Beautiful Life - Vintage Scrapbook album

Hi everyone...

the skies are gray but I managed to get some decent pictures of my latest creation. I will be posting it for sale on my Etsy shop later on today. If you can't wait, email me. :)

Here is a couple of photos as an appetizer. The album has 6 chipboard pages loaded with designer papers from various brands and lots of vintage photos. I have adhered them with non permanent adhesive, so you can take them off and use your own photos if you like. It's the perfect gift for the vintage lover or for a baby girl's album. The whole slide show with all the pages of the album is at the end of my blog for you to enjoy. :)

I also finished a Christmas paperbag album that I will be listing on Etsy. Here is the front cover. We got big plans for Christmas, I will share it later on this week. :) Enjoy the photos.
