NEW Vintage Pocket Card

I love all of our new Full Bloom greeting cards but the vintage pocket cards are my favorites. Our Etsy Shop  I can't remember where I saw this idea so I can't take credit as the originator. But whoever first did it did a great job. They are so neat. You can add a picture or journaling to the tag. Also you could put other surprises in the pocket like a gift card.  So cool!  Take a look at this one.

Used Webster's Pages pp & journal card , cream cardstock, pink paper flower and green ribbon. Also used Grand Nestibilities shape. stamped and heat embossed blue sentiment and inked brown edges.

I added pop dot adhesive in a "U" shape to the back of this floral shaped paper.

I punched a hole on the top of this journal card. Then added my green ribbon and pink flower. The sentiment is heat embossed to give it a glossy look.

We can add another sentiments if you prefer. Come visit our online store to see more about it and others.

Have a great day!

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!
