2011 Christmas Album

Hi there,

We are almost there...almost into 2012. It's amazing how quickly 2011 flew by. Before we get to the 2012, I would like to share my Christmas 2011 album with you. Christmas was so wonderful for us. We felt so blessed to be surrounded by family. My little ones had such a fun time. The photos in this album capture those most wonderful moments.

To create this album, I started with paper bags for the base. I filtered in some corrugated board and then covered my pages with My Mind's Eye. Next I aged my papers and bound the book with my Cinch and coils. I added many 3 -D elements and photos. I LOVE chunky books, so that was one of my focuses with this album. This was truly a lot of fun. Take a peek...








Supplies: Patterned Paper and 3-D Elements: My Minds Eye; Stickers: Bo Bunny; Ribbon: May Arts; Punch & Dies: EK Success & Sizzix; Ink: Ranger; Metals & Buttons: Tim Holtz; Bling: Recollections; Beaded Stems: Prima


I love reading your comments, so feel free to leave me some...:)
Thanks so much for visiting.


Hugs,


Karen

Altered Chipboard Pieces

Hi there,

I wanted to share these little altered items that i created using chipboard pieces for my Diva group. The theme was chipboard. I used the Tim Holtz bodyform die and vintage ink, basic grey paper, CTMH pearls, hemp and some repurposed tulle from my girls tutus. They were made during breast cancer awareness month, but just realized that I didn't share them with all of you.

These make great magnets, embellishments for pages or pins...many possibilities.

Thanks for stopping by!!

Hugs,

Karen
