With the computer problems that I was having before, I realized that I had not posted any pictures of this fun little mini album that I created for a class at Scrappin' Friends in November. I fell in love with this Bo Bunny paper "Spicy Kitchen" and I knew I wanted to create a special album to record family recipes and pictures of my kids cooking with their Grandmas. My mom makes these wonderful biscuits, my daughter just loves them. Every time my mom comes for a visit my sweet girl is asking to make some biscuits, my mom doesn't use a recipe, so it is one of those things I want to write down. I love seeing my kids in the kitchen with my mom, she is much more relaxed in the kitchen than I am, lets just say cooking is not my favorite thing! So in this album I made lots of places to put photos and lots of pockets, on every page, to add recipe cards and journal special memories or reasons you love this or that recipe! I used my Bind it All to make this album, the pages flip out from both sides for a little twist. At the back of the album I created a accordion file with envelopes to store more recipes. I believe that there is still one kit available at Scrappin' Friends, if you are interested. The base of the book is all done for you, and the binding is already attached so all you need to do is add the decorative pieces that are provided in the kit!
I love how this turned out, what do you think?

It's time for another Angel Art Blog Hop!! This month we are showcasing decorative packaging!! I can't wait to see what all the other Angels have created. I had so many ideas for this, but unfortunately very little time. Here is what I did get made, last year my friend Linda gave me these glass jars to use for my ribbon, my first thought was that they looked like peppermint candies, so of course I had to make a candy jar. All the stamps used are from The Angel Company, for the lid I used "Christmas Circles" I layered them and used some foam tape for more dimension, I even broke into my stash of jewel brads for the center. It still needed something so I added one of those sweet little girls from "Holiday Girls" to the side, layered on red. A little ribbon around the lid and Ta-Da!! I think it will make a nice gift, that is if I can part with it! So what do you think!? Be sure and visit all the other Angels that are participating in this blog hop to see all their wonderful creations!!

Last Sunday was my Hostess Group get together (I have one of the sweetest most wonderful group of gals anywhere!) , this is one of the projects that we created. I just love how this turned out. I had found these felt coasters in a dollar bin at Micheal's, and thought I could make some thing nifty with them. This is what I ended up with, an "Ornament Card"!! Inside the card is a spot for a gift card, and the ornament is detachable. I thought that these would be great for a quick gift item, for coworkers or teachers. I used The Angel Company set "Merriest Wishes" for this card, a great set for all winter long! I colored her with Copic Markers, and added Stickles to her wings for a little shimmer. What do you think?

Another Christmas card to share with you! Ready or not this Holiday is fast approaching, I feel like someone has turned the speed up on my hamster wheel!! But even though time seems to be flying by, and I am not really ready, I am really feeling "Christmasy" this year! Maybe it's all the Holiday music I have been listening to, I don't know, but I sure am enjoying the season!! I hope that you are enjoying it too!!
