Mini Albums

Hi, welcome back and thank you again for stopping by for a peep.

Today, I thought I post up some Mini Albums that I have been selling at the markets for over 12 months now. They make lovely gifts for everyone. A great way to capture a couple of important events and record them in the mini album and post off to family. I have sent a couple to my family members and they love them and its like a little brag book that they can take with them to show their friends. Before I go too much further, I must not take credit for this idea, my friend Shirley from Stamping Elephants showed me this idea probably nearly 2 years ago now and its funny as I have only really had them on my market stall for about 5 or 6 months. Thank you Shirley for showing me this great idea. You should pop over to her blog as she does some of the most wonderful things.

Mini Album - Storytime DSP

Mini Album – Storytime DSP

This is the most recent one and I thought it would be good for those back to school or first school days photos that we all get and lovely to pass onto grandparents so they dont miss out on all the fun. There is plenty of room inside for photos and journalling and I have coordinated the pages inside with the DSP.

Here are another couple:

Greenhouse Gala DSP

Blueberry Crush - DSP

Blueberry Crush – DSP

These 2 were made with retired Designer Series Paper from Stampin Up. I had quite a few papers left and made them into these albums. I must say they do look great.

I have another couple here as well:



and last but not least one made with some of last years In – Colour, Blushing Bride and the special DSP that went with those in- colours.

Top Note Mini Album 005

Blushing Bride – Butterflies

I must say they do look great and are selling at times really well. They make great gifts.

Thank you for stopping by for a look and be sure to have a look at my friend Shirley’s Blog. She really does do some awesome stuff.

Take care

Tea Light Candle Holders

Hi fellow crafters. Its Monday morning here and I must admit its a little hard to get moving or even poke my nose out the front door.!  Yes it appears to be raining again and lots of it! Plenty of time to do more crafting.  This is a good thing as I like to have a big variety at the Handmade Market Expo in Morayfield this Sunday. If it hasnt rained too much it should be a good day especially with it all being indoors the weather will not hurt us at all unless its too much rain.

There has been a lot of rain recently and with rain and humidity and warmth, its perfect for mosquitoes. I have the tea light candles with the citronella in them and they are amazingly like a lot of our gorgeous colours:

Tealight Candle Holder – Baja Breeze

I like to have my candles as visible as possible so therefore I have made some holders for them. I made them using Aluminium in the Big Shot using the Flower Folds Bigz Die. The smaller of the 2 flowers has then been run through my Petals Aplenty Embossing Folder. Here is another:

Tealight Candle Holder - Daffodil Delight

Tealight Candle Holder – Daffodil Delight

This one is Daffodil Delight or close to it (no I didnt colour them myself) in the bottom right hand corner you can see Pretty in Pink candle. Here is another:

Tealight Candle Holder - Riding Hood Red

Tealight Candle Holder – Riding Hood Red

Here is one that is similar in colour to Riding Hood Red. And a group shot ready to go for the Market this weekend. I hope they go a treat.

I love the way when the die cuts the aluminium that it neatly rolls the edges, therefore there is no risk to cutting fingers. Once that candle is finished, its just simple to put another in the centre.

Thank you once again for stopping by and looking at my blog.

take care

Butterflies and Sunny Challenge

Hi there crafters,

I hope your week has been filled with fun and crafting. I have been so busy this last week, so it has taken me all week to get to the challenge at Sunny Challenges and Creations this week.

Here is the sketch,

Sketch Challenge from Sunny Challenges and Creations this week.

I have been using the Big Shot so much this week so it was inevitable that I used it in the challenge. Here is my entry for this weeks challenge,

Beautiful Wings and Butterflies – Mother’s Day Card

To complete the challenge, I added the stripes with the lattice embossing folder. Mother’s Day is this weekend here in Australia. Last weekend at the markets, I sold out of all my Mother’s Day cards so  I needed to make just a couple more for those last minute shoppers at the markets this Sunday. I have so many more things to make as shoppers really spent last Sunday. Mostly notepads and post it notes, also some mini albums that I have made with the top note die.

Off to create some more lovely things for this weekend. Have a great day and come back soon. I have at least another post almost ready to go.
