Customer Appreciation Days!

December is a time of gift giving and blessings of thankfulness.  At this time, I would like to thank all of you for your support and friendship over the past year - years for some of you!  I couldn't be more blessed or feel any more fortunate to know all of you! You have enriched my life and so to show my gratitude, I will be running a deal-a-day special for the first 12 days of December. 

Each day I will offer a special deal - free shipping or free product - depending on the items purchased or how much you spend. Yes, I am giving YOU gifts for Christmas! This would also be a great time to give your wishlist to a family member and have them order for you! Makes it a bit easier on them, right? They can have it shipped right to their place of business so it remains a surprise to you! 

Another plus to this daily special, to save on the shipping cost, I will keep a running total for you each day you take advantage of the special deal then place the order for you as one order on the 13th. Couldn't be any easier than that! To sweeten the deal even more, everyone who places an order of $25 or more during this special promotion will have their name entered into a drawing for a handmade item from me! 

Be sure to check out my blog beginning December 1st for photos of each day's special as well as other details. To just place an order, click here and you'll go right to my website. Remember, only two more days to take advantage of the 50% off any stamp set* when you place a $50 order and purchase the November Stamp of the Month set - Capture the Date - for just $5.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me!

Thanks for stopping by today! Happy scrampin'!

Mini Album For Sale

Wow! It has been forever since I've posted any new artwork FOR SALE here and since Christmas is coming I figured now is a good time! Stay tuned for more items coming soon!

First up is this cute little mini album that I showed here back at the beginning of November. The album measures 5" x 4 1/2" and is just perfect for the student in your life. I have totally enjoyed looking at this mini since I created it but am willing to give it up now since I don't have any children in school anymore. That's actually a good thing though! ;-)

Price is $25 if I don't have to ship it to you but if you require shipping, add an additional $5. If you wish to see more details and photos of this mini album, click here. Be sure to let me know ASAP if you wish to purchase it as I am sure it will sell fast!

Have a great day! Happy scrampin'!

Close To My Heart Scholastic - School Days Mini Album

I had so much fun creating this cute little mini album. I got the general instructions from a YouTube video and when I remember the person's channel, I will share that with you. I am so bad about writing that info down right away and then totally forget all about it. ;-(
UPDATE: here's the link to the YouTube video to create the basic pages of this album.

Anyway, I was able to use up more of my paper stash on this but not as much as I'd like to. I still have way too much!

The main papers used are from the Scholastic paper pack from Close To My Heart's current catalog with a few pieces of Typeset from an earlier catalog.

The title letters were cut with the Artiste Cricut cartridge as well as all the mats and journaling spots that look like notebook paper.

The second photo shows the inside of the front cover and the first page. The stamped images are from the Scholastic workshop kit stamp set.

The tag was cut with the Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge. The scalloped circles were punched out of black cardstock with the 2" scalloped punch by Close To My Heart.

The next two photos show more inside pages where I added some small Flip Flaps

and more stamped images that I didn't completely glue down so that a photo may be tucked under it.

There are 3 different pockets in each page of this album - one in the front where I stamped an image from the Library Cards stamp set to make journaling spots - one at the top - then when you turn the page, there's another library pocket for a tag.

I also connected a journaling spot to the top of a piece of cardstock with a brad so that it can be turned out of the way to add a photo under it. Pretty clever, huh?
 You can see on the tops of the tags I put numbers. To keep the bulkiness down, rather than using ribbon or brads, I decided to use those cute little epoxy number dots from the Memo Assortment pack and I like how it looks.
 Another inside page showing two really small Flip Flaps. I think they are just too cute, those little clear Flip Flaps. You can add more than one photo in each flap although they would be quite small so you could use them to hold a piece of memorabilia if you'd rather - whatever fits in them.
 And again you can see where I stamped images and didn't totally adhere them to the pages so a photo can be tucked behind it.
Here is the last page with another photo mat that has a movable journaling tag on top plus a photo can be tucked behind the stamped image on the inside back cover.

I hope you have enjoyed looking at my newest mini album creation. It will be for sale as soon as I am done admiring it so let me know if you are interested!
