2010 Christmas Memories

Can you believe Christmas is over? This year is going fast and I am so glad we were able to get off to a great start in getting our activities and traditions going early in December.  But between the rain and our colds we did have some fun leading up to Christmas day.  Then on Christmas day, Ron and I exchanged our gifts and watched that crazy Los Angeles Laker game.  We lost big time but we tried not to let it spoil our mood.

We spent time with my mom later that day. I couldn't wait to see what she thought of my Christmas card. She loved it! It did my heart good to see her anticipation and excitment over my work. Usually I mail my cards to the many family and friends so it was a special treat to see a response.  So exciting!

Then on Sunday, we visited my in-laws and had a wonderful time. They spoiled us with lots of love and gifts. My special card was a winner, too. They loved it. Feels good. Thanks mom and dad!

Well, I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas with your family and friends. Enjoy the rest of the week and I will post pictures of my Christmas mini albums the family all enjoyed. Ciao!


  1. Happy you enjoyed your holiday.
    Looking forward to seeing your mini's.

  2. Isn't it grand when that smallest thing can put a smile on someones face. I'm loving your card designs. Happy New Year!

INSPIRED SHE: Meet Nylene Budge

Today's "Inspired She" features my first guest, Nylene Budge of Utah. I first met her years ago when I was an excited and new card maker and scrapbooker. She led an online group called the "Pokey Peas" at Two Peas in a Bucket papercrafting website.  She gladly welcomed me and the group cheered for me.

Over the years, not only have we shared our various creative projects but we have shared our lives. What a sisterhood! Thanks Nylene!!!!

Nylene is a wonderful crafter, wife, mother, grandmother and even great grandmother. Although I know she would blush when I say this, but she is a master at making scrapbook pages and greeting cards along with other crafts.

One of her precious gifts is hosting an annual Summer craft camp for her grandkids at her home.  Even her husband offers his woodmaking arts to the event.

This year's theme was Dinosaurs. I love that she is passing on her passion for crafting to the next generations. These are fun memories they will alw…

My NEW Mini Journal Tutorial Video

Today's post is about a super cute mini journal album. I was inspired to make this project after I watched Mark Montano's YouTube Mini Art Journal tutorial. He always does great crafts and I had to try this one. Check out his YouTube Channel and his Website.

Here is my NEW YouTube tutorial video. The journal size is 2 1/2 x 3 inches. All you need is some cardboard, glue, lots of patterned paper and scissors/paper trimmer. These little booklets are a fun way to document your thoughts and pictures. Also, your kids would love this! Take a look!

I had a ball making this album and I had to make a few more.

You can used up some of your stickers, scraps of paper and other supplies to fill up these little books. I hope you will give it a try.

Thanks for visiting and have a good day.

NEW Cards with Anna Griffin Products

Happy Thursday! As many of you know I love making greeting cards and I have made tons of them since I started in 2006. When I saw Anna Griffin and her products on HSN years ago, I was in love. Since then, I have bought several of her popular card kits.

Last year, I was interested in buying a few individual pieces for card parties and my own personal use. I bought a box of patterned, prefolded 5x7 cards, a die set with embossing folder and  two boxes of card toppers. Finally this month, I had all the pieces to play around with.

Today, I am sharing some of the cards I made and how I did them. Take a look.

Now, I put the pieces all together and looka here!

Here are the links to Anna Griffin and HSN  Thanks for stopping by. Have a nice day!
