A New Project

Here is a new project I've been working on lately.  My "peeps" and I started mini albums for journaling about the Names/Character of God.  They are going to be A-Z organized.  Here I have "A" finished.  I had to go through the album and put sticky notes down to be sure I have enough room. 

I used Basic Grey's "Origins" paper and embelly's.  I made the album according to the instructions generously shared here at Follow the Paper Trail on You Tube (thanks Laura). 

I was going to use my Cinch to bind it, but I couldn't get the sections into the machine so I hand punched them.  Then I realized I didn't need to punch them at all, so now that I had holes in it I decided to weave ribbon through them. 

Anyway, I'm enjoying how it turned out.  Here it is...


Thanks for stopping by.

Challenge 7 results

For this challenge I decided to do a 2 page layout.  These are the products I used: stickers, buttons, ribbon, string, flowers, brads, rub-ons, decorative paper, cardstock (in 3 colors), an eyelet, liquid glass (aka glassy accents), a marker, and a date stamp.  Pfeww! That was fun and I like how the pages turned out.

Recently Working On...

Hey Everybody,  Here is a fun page I made using the new Becky Fleck Page Maps book (Amazon).  I love this book because the maps are easy to understand and very do-able for me.  There are nice index cards in the back of the book that you can take out, put a binding ring on them and they're ready to go with you to a crop.  I  Love it! 

This is the map I used for the following layout I made.

Here's the layout I made.
