Recipe Box......

This was fun to make and fast!!! I used the 'Let's Get Together' paper and recipe card kit and coordinating ribbon. You can use whatever paper you would like. I modge podged everything to the can. I took about 1 hour. I am thinking Christmas gifts. I bought the box at Country Keepsakes in Salina..I believe they were $5.99 or $6.99, I am not sure but around that price.

Halloween Card/Mini album....

This is a fun mini album to give away or keep for yourself! We will be using several of the Halloween stamps and my favorite..the October word puzzle. This cute card is made with 1 sheet of
card stock and 1 piece of 6"x 12" cardstock for the middle album. Most of the decoration is stamped! I used the Enchanted paper. If you want to, you can use fall stamps instead and turn it into a "thankful" album, or a pumpkin patch theme! It is all yours! I think I put about 20 wallet sized pictures in the whole thing! I love mini albums!

Give Thanks Block Center Piece...

My friend Liz is involved with our Wards 'Souper Saturday' - 11/1/2008 (makes you wonder what they are going to serve...haha) anyway, She asked me if I would do this craft...I am so pleased that we were able to put this together. She had found something like it in a craft pamphlet, so I had something to go on. I used the Abundance Paper, Autumn Harvest Leaves and flowers, Winter buttons...Give Thanks Booking Stamp Set, Goodness In Life Stamp Set. I think it turned out super cute!!! If anyone is interested the kits are $18.00, call and let me know!! Happy Stampin' and Scrappin'!

Memory Box/ Notebook Paper.....LOVE THIS!!!

My Creations Memory Keeper and Album


Back (initals)

Sides (embossed)

I wondered forever about this BOX!! I wasn't sure I could tackle this. It is the My Creations Memory Keeper Box...covered with the Notebook Paper kit. I love this paper. Sometimes you never know how much you are going to like something until you actually use it...this was one of those moments. I had ordered the Memory Keeper Box kit off of Brandies Website after watching the CTMH TV mini movie about them. So...I ordered it. This is what I came up with. I used the Soul Mates Stamp set (came with kit), Playful Flourishes Stamp set, Chocolate Alphabet Small Stamp set, Hollyhock Card stock, Hollyhock and Black ink, Big Blooms flowers, gold and black embossing...(my newest fave!) I also started putting together a 6x6 My Creations Memory Showcase album. I am going to make a box for each one of my kids and put mementos from their childhood in them...example.. Jentrie (pictured) is now 7 (on tuesday). Less than 12 hours after her birth she was life flighted by ambulance to UVRMC in Provo where she lived for 10 days in NBICU. The first 7 days she was on a breathing monitor, where a machine breathed for her until her lungs were strong enough to breath on their own. I have saved many items from that, notes I had written, bows the nurses put in her hair...many memories...those will go in her box along with items I have saved up to now and I will continue to put things in this box until she becomes a mom, then I will give her, her is a work in progress. I am so tickled to do one for each child! Have so much stuff...I have a habit of saving everything! I am so bad that I almost (almost) saved the circumcision ring for my boys...Rhett made me throw them away! Lol! These are fun to make, and OH the memory's that pop in to mind while making them! Happy Stampin' and Scrappin'!
