I Said I Wouldn't Do This!

Ok, I was talked into creating a blog to showcase my creativity. I have been resisting this for far too long, but now is the time to finally get the ball rolling.

So here goes. Come with me on my journey into creativity.

Mini Purse Albums

I am in love with creating these!  Not too long ago, Kathy from Paper Phenomenon posted a kit for Mini Purse Albums.  I looked at what she did and said "Wow"... Amazing!!  She does some incredible work and I'm not sure when she finds the time to do all of her creating since she does work a full-time job.

So anyways, the day that she was doing the online video stream tutorial, I wasn't home.  But later on, I went back and reviewed the Ustream video so that I could follow along and create my mini album.  I sat down and created my first one...

It now has a nice embellishment on the front.... just didn't feel like retaking the picture.

I liked the way it came out, so this weekend, I created 2 new ones.  These will be for gifts.

This green paper looks just like alligator skin.  I found a different button for this green one... but put the flower on there as a place holder.  Again... I'm too lazy to retake the picture.

And this one.... I really love.  I might have a hard time parting with it , but I know it will be truly loved.

and check out the inside of this one.  I just love it.

  5. LOVE These! I saw Kathy's and have been wanting to try this! Where in J's did you find the handles? I have not seen them...but maybe didn't know where to look.
