Season's Greetings PINK Album

I finished the last touches on my final Christmas Album for the year.  I already feel a little weepy ... after all the preparing, excitement, parties and anticipation of Christmas I always feel a little sad when the tree has to come down and the Holidays are past.  So I am putting away all my lovely Christmas embellishments and paper (boohoo) until next year.

Here are some of the pages in the Season's Greetings Album

Thank you for looking and HAPPY HOLIDAYS

Finished Another Christmas Album

Just finished what I think will be my last Christmas album for the year.  This album is a little out of my normal color scheme - its Pink!!  I usually do not scrap pink Christmas album but the paper was so cute that it inspired my inner pinkness.  The binding is canvas which I hand stitched.  Then the snow flake cover inspired me to sew buttons on the binding because I thought it would be cute.

I will be posting this album later tonight, but here is a sneak peek.  I will post more pictures later.

Packing the kits and checking it twice

Getting ready to fly out to CREATE 365.  Packing my kits and checking my list to make sure I havent forgotten anything!!

The thing that I dont like about traveling is that I cant take my organizer tote full of my tools!!  But I am sure Amy will let me borrow hers.  I am also bringing a winter project to work on while at the Christmas Crop!!  Cant wait to try some delicious pizza, no pig skin for me!! LOL.  I know that Amy and Suzy tried it but no thanks.

It's Begining to Look Alot like Christmas at CREATE 365!!

I am kitting my classes, packing my bags and getting VERY EXCITED about teaching this weekend Dec. 10-12th in LA @ CREATE 365.

I will be teaching 3 classes!!  I will also be giving away lots of goodies to all my cropping girlies.  I am bringing, albums, flowers, books, kits and of course Nikki Sivils buttons, flags and 6x6 pads to GIVE AWAY!!!

On Friday sweet Amy will be having a Christmas Crop, so come and play with us!!  I would love to meet everyone.  I will be doing a Make-N-Take playing games and giving away prizes.  I will also be teaching my Family Faves Album Class.  This class is great for gifts too.  The cost is $35.00 and it includes everything to make your album except for the adhesives so be sure to stop by Create 365 blog for "what to bring"  and check out the sample.  The album is very embellished because I am all about the embellies!!!

On Saturday, I will also be teaching two 12x12 layouts.  The first is titled "Bee Happy" using the Nikki Sivils - Willow Bee collection.  If you take this class you get goodies that Nikki sent me to spread the joy :)

My second 12x12 two page layout is titled "Life is Good".  If you sign up for this class you  will also receive a second FREE kit themed for adoption of a new christmas pet or new dolly.  Its a great kit to give a child so that mommy and child can work on the kit together.

Amy and I are going to have so much fun and I would love to share good times and laughter with you all.  So Bee Happy, and share Family Faves memories with Amy and I because Life is Good!!  Hope to see you there.

Celebrate Christmas

Well one down and one to go.  Well actually I have more ideas roaming around in my head for Christmas albums LOL.  But for now, lets just say that I still have a half finished album on my work table that I will finish by next week.

So back to this album "Celebrate" I thought it turned out whimsical and cute which lately I do a lot of whimsy.  I use to be altered vintage when I first started scrapping years ago; then when I started teaching alot of classes it seemed that my audience liked whimsy.  Maybe it is because there are a lot of mommies out there with young children and I can see why they would be more partial to cuteness.

Anywho, what I did with this album was use an assortment of eclectic papers with the color scheme of pinks, blues, and reds.  I was inspired by the cutie patootie snowman on the tin ornament I used on the cover and everything after that kind of just came together.

The covers are made from the Clear Scraps snowflake album and the inside pages are different shapes and made of chipboard.  I like to mix things up :)

For more pics of this album click here:  CELEBRATE CHRISTMAS.  I have posted it on ebay for our PFOP team challenge.

Working like a little Elf

Just wanted to show you a sneak peak of what I have been doing the past week instead of blogging.  I have been busy making christmas albums for our PFOP team challenge.

I have been working on two albums, one in light colors and pink and the other in deeper reds and greens.  One has acrylic snowflakes and shaped pages and the other is a really cool pocket interactive technique that my good friend daphna Justintime design taught me.  Love my scrappy friends because you are always able to learn from them.

Dont forget to check out PFOP those girlies are very talented and I am happy they are letting me play with them on their team.  They have some nice albums and pages posted this week.  So dont miss out because the albums sell fast.

I also wanted to mention that I am getting ready to teach in LA with my very sweet friend Amy Muffoletto.  She just opend a REALLY REALLY cute store called CREATE 365 in Lafayette and she has asked me to teach a couple of classes for her on Dec. 10th and 11th.  You must check out her store!!!  Look how cute it is

I will post more on these classes later, but what I will tell you now is that one of the pages I designed was with the Nikki Sivils "Willie Bee" collection.  Nikki was generous and kind as usual and sent me a whole box of Nikki products to give away to those ladies that take the classes.  Whoo Hoo!!  Thank you Nikki!!!

I will be teaching Family Faves Album this Saturday November 13th at:

My Paper Treehouse Studio

Class should take approx 3 hours, but I will be staying (11:00am - 4:00pm) so dont feel you need to rush.

I used the wood album from Chatterbox.  The album has twelve (12) chipboard pages, each page measures 5 ½ by 6 ½ and each photo matte measures 4x4. Every page is very embellished with lots of chipboard, felt pieces, primas, ribbon, fibers, buttons, embossing and more.

Traditions Christmas Album

Today is Friday and the team over at PFOP will be listing MORE new items today so go by and check it out.

I am listing my album early because I am on my way to EPCOT!! Should be alot of fun, we are going to the food and wine festival.

I decided to make this christmas album with a bit of vintage feel, so the colors are more muted and I used alot more inking.

For more pictures go to my posting here Traditions Christmas Album.  I also made a you tube video ... still no talkies though, just pics and music.  As soon as I get some courage I will make a talkie LOL

The binding of my album has a faux suede paper.  The covers are chipboard and the inside pages are paper bags.

Isn't this wood ornament cute?

I thought lots of fiber vs. ribbon would give my album a more warm and vintage look.

My girlfriend Daphna, gave me this cute wood snowflake, I thought it would look cute as a charm along with gingerbread men.

I already have an idea for my next album and hopefully will have it finished for next friday!!  Thank you for looking
