I can't think of a title...

This is an album that I made in the October issue of CK. That's where you can see the cover and first pages but here's a peek into a few pages of the inside.


I used Heidi Swapp's playing cards that are super fun and perfect for a mini album. I also used Heidi Swapp's Runway collection (paper), mirrors, iron-on glitter words, and Hambly chandelier transparency, Basic Grey rub ons. Then my trusty Bind-It-All to put it all together.






My friend Jen made this SUPER cute birthday invitation inspired by my above album! Yes, that's an invitation & yes, she's one of those moms that goes above and beyond for her kids!! If you could only see their Halloween costumes that she makes. Just take my word for it-they are amazing! Poor Avery... I bought her costume at Target and the only handmade touches I added was pinning it up so it wouldn't get muddy in the rain. ;)
Jen you're one awesome momma!

So cute! I'm glad that you posted that album, I was in love with it when I saw it in CK. Have you been working on any fabric projects lately? I love it when you post those!

Super cute! Can you post new pics of how your scraproom ended up after the new paint? I loved how it was before (the one in CK) and my husband finally bought me some shelfs for above my desk & I'd like to see your office fr some good inspiration.

Love how it looks with the Bind it All holding it together!

I Love the idea of the mini album! I have one question...If I bought the Bind-it-all tool where do you find the metal binding strips? I would love to make little albums using this tool but I am not sure where to buy the strips to keep it together. Can you help me out? Thanks!

Hi Elizabeth, were you able to find out from Colin how he did the kid pics in photoshop...I can't wait to find out, ha!

Hi. I just made your Pumpkin cookies. They came out like muffin tops. Is that what they're supposed to be like. They're very yummy!
