2017 – Christmas tags all year

Hi Everyone,  hope all is well.  I know it has been a minute since I posted but I have been creating but I will only be sharing a few things today.  First are my tags for September for the challenge hosted by  Myra – yt –  https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLMPNuIc_T801wcU3aE35HZl7zKWeJpwaN .   For this set I created 12.  I cut several and layered them, then put lace trim all around the edges.  This was a little tedious but I think they turned out cute.



The Grand Finale’

This is the grand finale and if are other things I forgot then they will have to wait till another day cause I am getting tired. lol  I must say  I love how these turned out and they are pinterest inspired but of course I had to do them in lots of colors.  They have matching envelopes, but of course I forgot to take that picture.   Hope you all like.

First the Easter cards and I made 28 of them.

Then I made my Mother’s Day cards 44 to be exact.  You will see matching envelopes in the pictures, but the envelope would not close so I made boxes and I will show a picture of those another day.  Love them.

Good night everyone.


I also entered a couple of challenges.  I told you I have been a busy little bee.  The first challenge was for Irene Brazil (craftyirina) https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC17xpvr1f4N7RaK1cr39TWA

It was for the flip books,  this was the second one I had made but the first one I had sent to anyone.

Next was a  card for a birthday and you tube anniversary for Natalie (putsomeblingonit) https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC4rGQKOMogLqCvU8UXvlIFA

But you will have to check out her channel cause apparently I had to many irons in the fire and forgot to take the picture. oops.

Next up was for Diana (sparemarbles) – https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCPWfa5GHJjK3B-c-aFHpUxA for her birthday she wanted us to do an all black lace book page.  This was challenging but so much fun.  The pictures are clearer on her channel.

Crafty things I have been up to.

Hello Everyone,  hope this post finds you all doing well.  I just wanted to come along and post a few crafty things I have been up too.  My mojo had completely disappeared for a while so to get some inspiration I watched  crafty videos on you-tube and I must say I was inspired greatly.   My first inspiration comes from  “https://www.youtube.com/user/TheTara148/videos“.  She did a video tutorial on a baby boy mini album. For me this was the first true mini album I have ever made and of course I still need a lot more practice but for the most part I think it turned out pretty good.  She inspired me so much with her tutorial that I tried it and completed it.  Thanks Tara.  My is in blues but not a baby boy theme.  Without further ado, here is what I did.  Hope you like it.

Staying with paper my next inspiration comes from a challenge give away that I didn’t enter but was definitely inspired to check out.  The give away is from: “https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC1PHYJ_RtzjLqK5rYvLo8Hw” and the project inspiration is created by: “https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCLZQ0QpHd42150z8WWCs-2g“.  This was a lot of fun  although I my top tab is a little taller than I wanted but I do plan to make more. It is a purse mini album.

A big Thank you to you all for the inspiration.
