Graphic 45 Artisan Style Mini Album

Hi everyone hope you are all having a fabulous day. I just wanted to share with you a mini album that I made for my sisters for Christmas. I made two of these albums and they look pretty much identical.

I bought the tutorial from Kathy King at Paper Phenomenon it is called Life in Retrospect 2-The Perfect 8x8 Mini Album. You can purchase the tutorial from her site here.

To make the albums I used Graphic 45 Artisan Style collection. I used 12 x 12 paper pads, 8 x 8  paper pads, as well as the tags and chipboard pieces. I just love the colors in this collection and I think the albums turned out beautifully.


Thanks for Stopping By!
Happy Crafting!

First Card using Minc

Hi everyone hope you all had a wonderful holiday season. This is my first post for the new year, I have been finding it really difficult to get back into my crafty groove since Christmas holidays, so hopefully this will help me.

Becca Feekan inspired me to buy a Minc machine when I saw her tutorial here on how to use the .Minc to create boarders around my dies, so now I am now a proud owner of a Minc.  I have been playing around with the settings on my printer trying to get the toner right for scanning my dies, it has taken me a bit of playing around but I am getting closer. This is my first creation using the Minc.

To make this card I used Spellbinders Dies Labels Thirty-Four, A2 Matting Basics. Penny Black Stamp HeartFelt Thanks. Heidi Swap Minc Machine.
