Christmas Already?

I know it's been awhile since I posted but I've been a single mom lately five days a week so I really haven't had much time for my paper crafting habit lately. I did make these simple Christmas cards though while I was trying to get inspired for my Christmas card workshop I'm hoping to hold this month or next. I hope you'll be there!!

Lots of photos!

Here's an idea!
Use a page protector that holds six 4x6 photos.
Decorate a 4x6 piece of cardstock to journal about the other photos for a "scrapbooked" look. This is a great way to tuck away a lot of pictures all at once without the work of doing actual layouts.

Getting Organizzed!

I found this great entertainment center and knew it would be perfect for organizing my paper crafting materials. The best thing about it is that it was a "free find" from a neighbor... thanks neighbor!

Bridal Shower Gift

Here's an Idea!

Hand stamped recipe cards for the bride-to-be make an excellent shower gift! I did these cards earlier today using various stamp sets and tied ribbon around them with a small gift tag. Include recipe cards with a casserole dish or other kitchen tools related to your recipes for the bride-to-be.
