Here is the Video

Here is the video about the cards I talked about in the previous post.  Enjoy!

Making cards from leftover Mini Album Paper

Hi All
Don't we just all have tons of scraps.  I showed a video a couple of days ago of a mini album I had just completed.  I was using a 6x6 pack and decided I was going to use up the rest of the paper making cards.  I did one video showing the first card.  You can see that here .
I just finnished seven more cards and I think I only have two pieces of paper left  Hooray!!  no scraps. I love the way they came out.  See them below.

This is the first card.  I used one of the frame sheets and created a spot for a stamped image.  Stamp is from Katie and Company.  All the papers are from the Prima "Peaches" 6x6 stack.

The two cards of the left also used a frame mat.  First is an embossed Geisha girl (very subtle), the middle card is a stamped image that I colored with water colored pencils and blended, and on the right a Hello card with the lantern paper.

These two sympathy cards used some of the prints.  On the left a gold embossed floral and on the right a stamp that resembles the flowers on the paper.

The last three (includes the original card) came out really cute also.  I love the banners in the middle.  Made from cutting squares into triangles,  Letters from an alpha sheet I have.  On the left I added flowers and a leaf to the background. 
That's it.  I will post a video showing these more clearly as soon as I can get it uploaded.
See you nice

On Going projects

Hi everyone
Well it is HOT here in Florida.  But I guess it still doesn't compair with the extreme heat in the mid-west.  At least I can stay inside and craft.  I am including some pictures of some of the projects I have been playing with.  Some are for Christmas and others will be in my craft shows.  This post is picture heavy...........hang in there.
Theses are some "Country Casual" wine glasses I made for our son and his wife who own property and a new cottage.  Fun huh!  Ball jars and candle holders.  Look pretty country to me.
Paper Bag Mini to go with the glasses for Christmas.  Still a work in progress.

Altered frame with bling mesh and earrings that I made for a grand-daughter.  I originally saw this on YouTube done by NurseTara04.  Check her out.

Box album.  Actually a prototype from a video I saw on YouTube from Angelwings14100.  Check her out, she is amazing.  I did this before the tutorial but think I did pretty good.

I made a video of these but I am still struggling with camera placement in my new room.  Take a look.
