Here are a few things I've made. If you want a tutorial on any of them, please post a comment and let me know and I'll be happy to do a tutorial.
MINI JOURNAL BOOKLET FROM 12X12 SHEET OF PAPER:
(There are many YouTube videos out there on this little pocket album - search for "pocket mini album using one 12x12 sheet of paper".) I've been meaning to do a written tutorial on this but so far just haven't done it! let me know if you want one.
|This is a little envelope that is open on the top that slides into one of the pockets.|
|This little album mostly consists of journal tags, but a person could also add some photos in the pockets.|
"YOU'RE TWEET" CANDY POCKET:
(From Pootles Paper Craft Watercolour Chick Treat Bag video tutorial on You Tube).
|I slipped two mini Peppermint Patties inside, punched a hole in upper corner and tied this onto a gift to use as a gift tag.|
CARD KIT IN A DOUBLE BOX:
(Anna Powell on YouTube has two wonderful videos Card Box Part 1 and Card Box Part 2. Very easy to follow and so fun to make!
|This is a good sized box - holds two sets of A2 cards, side-by-side, or one side holds the cards and the other side holds embellishments for the kit. The box is about 9" x 11".|
|On the left side, I have put in eight cards and envelopes. The right side is divided into two sections to hold tags and embellishments.|
I made four each of two kinds of cards that have a watercolor look. I got these free watercolor wreath printables from the website Free Pretty Things for You, go to her webpage here, and The Cottage Market, go to the webpage here. I mean.. it looks like I did the watercoloring right on the watercolor paper I used! Her artwork is awesome!
Their wreaths had quotes inside, such as this one:
but I opted to just use the wreath and erased the quote from the middle using my "Paint" Program.
|This watercolor flower bunch also came from Free Pretty Things for You as a free printable download called Spring Watercolor Floral Spray.|
|I added lots of little goodies and embellishments to make your own card, such as sentiment labels, tiny bows, vellum butterflies, and some goodies from a Becky Higgins Project Life "130 pieces kit".|
BRIDAL SHOWER VINTAGE CARD:
|I used some GORGEOUS DCWV Papers from the Midnight Berry 12x12 paper pad, some gold glitter paper, a doily that I inked with dark brown and a photo made to look vintage, of my dear soon-to-be niece-in-law!|
This girl really has been busy! These are not all of the projects I've been working on!. I also managed to go with my sister to a weekend scrapbook retreat here in Madras. We had a great time!
Let me know if you would like further instructions on any of these projects.
