French Country Accordion Mini Album



A couple of weeks ago, I won Graphic 45 French Country 12 x 12 paper collection from Country Craft Collection!  You can find this group on Facebook and once you join ( for free) you will be able to see all their fabulous tutorials!  They even have a store where you can order supplies!  I love it!
Tammy Merrill does a lot of the tutorials but the above tutorial is from Kim Rannells.  Her design was for a Christmas album-which I love - but I decided to use my new winnings!  I did post the above video on the Scrapbookers of Country Craft Creations ( on Facebook ) to show them what I had made with the paper collection.   Check out Kim's tutorial here-

Here are a few more pictures of this cute Mini album!






I am in the process of making another Accordion Mini Album and will post those pictures as soon as I  have finished it!  I hope everyone had a wonderful Father's Day!

Baby Shower Cards


I haven't made Baby Shower cards in a while.  I forgot how much I love working on these !! The paper on this onesie is from Graphic 45.  I used Martha Stewart's punch to make the "ruffles".  I have 2 Grandsons, who I love dearly, but I love working on cards for little girls too!!  I love how the ruffles sort of stand up!


I used the same sentiment for both cards.  It was really fun decorating this onesie!




I have made this crib card before- in fact, I did a tutorial on how I made it in a previous post. I still  love making these cards too!  This one is for a little girl baby.


You can see the crib is full of stuffed animals and baby bottles and pacifiers- baby stuff!  I love the fact that this card will fold and go into an envelope for mailing.  Probably cost more but it will mail.


I also made my sister, Andrea, an anniversary card.  She and her hubby have been married 25 years!!  Really something to celebrate!  I got the style of the card below from some of the Dutch Doobadoo cards I have been seeing on Pinterest.   It will also fold and can be mailed!  This is a little different but I think I will make another one with a little scene in it.    You should check out those Doobadoo cards on Pinterest.  They are really cute!  I think I just like saying the name of the company!!



As you can see - I have been busy in my Craft Room!  I have been in my garden too!  So busy!!  Not sure where the time has gone!  Retirement is wearing me out- but I love it!!  The days seem to fly by!  Below is a picture of the remaining birdhouses that I painted.  That was a fun project!  I may move them up several rungs- don't want the neighborhood cat getting any ideas!  Take care!
