Mini Album Monday- Wallet Mini Album

| Uncategorized

Hi Everyone!

SO excited to be back with Mini Album Monday!! Today’s mini is a 4 1/2 by 6 1/2 wallet mini album.

This mini would make a great gift especially if you fill it with pictures and memories. 

The paper I used is the CTMH Charlotte Workshops Your Way Kit. These are actually the remaining pieces I had after I created another mini album. 


I love this paper pack and am going to get one more before the new catalog comes out on 5/1. You need to get one also. This paper and the embellishments that come with it in Workshops Your Way are fantastic. I have made 2 mini albums and a few cards with it. 

This mini even though it is small has 4 spaces for 4×6 photos and 4 spaces for 3×4 photos. It is adorable!

Here is a video that will show you more of this wallet mini:




You can pick up the Charlotte Workshops Your Way Kit here:



I hope you enjoyed my project & thanks for stopping by!

Craft Your Passion Design Team Project- Beautiful Marsailles Card

| craft life, craft your passion, crafting, crafty gal, crafty mom, CTMH, Diamonds Are Forever Flair, Marsailles

Hi Everyone!

Today’s project is my design team project for Craft Your Passion.



Our sponsor this week is Rick St. Dennis and the image I used was Marsailles.


I am absolutely in love with this image! I colored her up with my Spectrum Noirs and the only embellishment I added was a touch of matching sequins.


I created dimension by playing with my card layers and then I pop dotted the image.


The stamp I used is from CTMH and is the Diamonds are Forever Flair #C1629. This is one of my favorite stamp sets. 


Make sure to play along at Craft Your Passion. You can link up your project here:

Hi Everyone!

Today’s project share is the Thanks a Bunch Card.

I love this card, it’s so cute. The paper is Vintage Bliss from Simple Stories and the stamp is from CTMH.


I colored up the image with my spectrum noirs and added some wink of stella for some sparkle! I also added a bow and some sequins for embellishment and I popped up the image for dimension.

Here is a side view/inside view. I added a little strip of plaid designer paper from the same collection on the inside. 

You can get your own Spring Critters stamp & you can pick up the matching thin lits (no fussy cutting!!) here:

EASY PEASEY SCRAPBOOKING SERIES- PROJECT TWO: PICTURE MY LIFE

| Uncategorized

Hi Everyone!

Today is Project 2 of the Easy Peasey Scrapbooking Series and today we are scrapping with Picture My Life! 

I know you have probably seen the big box at your local store that you can buy with a ton of cards but Picture My Life is so much better. 

Why, you ask? Well, first the quality is fantastic but not only are each of the cards adorable you also don’t get a bunch of duplicates like you would in the big box. 

Scrapbooking is so much easier when have such a great selection to choose from and don’t have to worry about duplicate layouts!


This scrapbook is going to be for my sister. She lives in France right now and just had my sweet little niece in January. I am going to build pages throughout the year and mail them to her so she can add them to her scrapbook! Fun, right!

The supplies I used today are-
Memory Protectors Design 3- Z1950 $9.95 for 10
Memory Protectors Design 4- Z1951 $9.95 for 10
Memory Protectors Design 5- Z1952 $9.95 for 10

Picture My Life– Our Story Scrapbooking Program- Z3195 $8.95 for 20 (4×6) cards and 36 (3×4) cards.


Here is the tutorial for my Picture My Life Project:

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed my project!

Easy Peasey Scrapbooking Series- Project One: Instalife

| CTMH, easy scrapbooking, Instalife, mini albums, paper craft, scrapbooking

Hi Everyone!

Today is the start of the Easy Peasey Scrapbooking Series with the first project being Instalife. Haven’t heard of Instalife yet? Well get ready because it is awesome.



The supplies I used for my project are:
CTMH Instalife Album
Memory Protector Mini 4×4
Memory Protector Mini 2×2
Colorful Me Cards
& Pictures of course!

Instalife is probably the best & easiest way to start scrapbooking. The cards are adorable and they don’t repeat over and over like some of the scrapbooking kits you get at your local craft store. 

Plus, the cards, the album and the memory protectors are not only high quality but you can create your entire album for about $23.00! That is a great deal!

The album I am creating today is for my niece who is turning 5 in April. Not only is my gift less expensive then I would have normally spent, it’s sentimental value is beyond measure. I am sure she and her parents will love it! 


Here is the tutorial for my Instalife Project:






Here are the supplies I used:



I hope this video inspires you to start scrapbooking!

Craft Your Passion/Design Team Post- You Are My Happy

| beary loving, Close To My Heart, craft your passion, Heart Broken Designs, mother's day, rosette

Hi Everyone,

Today I am sharing my Design Team Post for Craft Your Passion. Our sponsor for today’s challenge was Beccy’s Place and the image I used was Beary Loving. 

I made a Rosette on a Stick for my project and I am loving it!



I colored up the image with my watercolor pencils and added stickles to the little red hearts. I added dimension by pop dotting the scalloped circle and the little bears as well.



On the straw, I added green tulle and a little brown cord to attach my sentiment which reads, “You are my happy.” LOVE. This is a CTMH stamp.



I am going to have to make more of these rosette projects, they are so quick and look so adorable when done!

Here are the CTMH supplies I used:


It’s not too late for you to link up your project, you can do that here:
