Weekend Wrap-Up

One of our favorite books is "Mini Albums"... This gem is chock full of great ideas, tips,
and step by step instructions for you to create your own mini albums and more.
Great things do come in small packages!

Cynthia picked a few of her favorites and treated us to a great demo on Saturday showing
how she took samples from the book and personalized them into her own unique
mini album masterpieces.

I especially love how she used Tim Holtz edger dies to add extra interest to album pages. Come in and take a look at the album she made using die cut canvas fabric and paper together...
just beautiful!

Then on Sunday Nancy wowed us with her creations inspired from these publications:

Adorable spring wreath made with Martha Stewart punches, ribbon, spring papers and a
Tim Holtz rosette die...pretty, pretty, pretty!

Little books and gift boxes made from food packaging, old gift cards, mailing supplies, cans, scraps of paper, cardboard...what a wonderful way to re-purpose those everyday items that might end up in the trash.

We hope you are inspired by these fun and functional projects. Thanks for stopping by...

Make someone happy!

  1. For those of us who don't make the trip to Claremont often enough, it is a treat to see what we're missing. That was some busy, creative weekend. Books full of inspiration, interpreted by Cynthia and Nancy. Great samples. Thanks for sharing.
