Tennessee Vacation Album

Made this mini chipboard album for the weekly challenge over at My Sheri Crafts...this weeks theme is "Vacations", and who doesn't love a vacation??? Anyhow, this is for friends (who I hope are not seeing this right now...) who we are travelling with in October to Tennessee...I'm planning on filling the book with pics of the 6 of us enjoying our trip together...and giving it as a Christmas present. I designed the title and all inside words with SCAL and you can find the file here on my blog, in the Just scroll down till you find the folder titled Tennessee Words and Title...feel free to use it...the album I got from My Sheri, and is a Basic Grey 5 1/4" chipboard album. Papers are K & Company and complete instructions for assembly can be found here.

50 Yr Anniversary Card

Made this card for an upcoming 50th Anniversary on dh's side of the family. The sketch was designed by Raquel (RAQ) Panos...and posted for this weeks challenge on the Cricut mb. Paper is GCD Studios, Zen Collection, and I have a renewed affinity for raffia. It was likely one of the first dimensional embellies I purchased 6 or 7 years ago when this addiction started...and I hadn't used much of it for the last few years, and suddenly I want it on everything...its cheap and really adds a nice touch to projects. Used OA for the 50, BB for the greeting, and G for the circles.

Summer Garden Party Tea Light Covers

Made these for the weekly challenge over at My Sheri Crafts...this week's challenge is "Summer" I love summer...the heat, the pool, the garden, cruising in our 69 convertible...long days, and most of all....NO SNOW!!!!! Ok, back to the challenge...these are so simple to make...1 sheet of 12x12 paper cut into 3 12x4 strips, punched at the top, embossed and then trace around your embossed design with a paper piercer, or a large needle, like I did...glue together and put over a tea light...simple and very elegant in your garden at night for those special get togethers with friends over the summer. If you have a summer project you want to share...feel free to post it here...we'd love to see what you come up with.
