3"X3" MINI ALBUM


Hi and welcome to all my very talented, and craft loving friends.

Was watching U Tube recently and the lady made one of these albums, her site is called
Gift Basket Appeal if you are interested in looking at the lovely items she makes. 
 So here is my version of her album which my daughter wanted to send to her friend who is recovering from Breast Cancer.
Sorry quite a few photos.






This album is made from one piece of 12"x12" size paper.
Then I used lot of snippets to create the pages and the cover.
There are some pockets in the top and also in the sides. 
The sayings inside were computer generated, but the lady on UTube used stamps to create those sayings which I didn't have.
Sorry about the fourth photo it came out a little blurred.

Thank you so much for your visit, and precious time.
I really do appreciate each and every visit.
Lots of crafty love. JENNY.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges.

GRANDSON'S 30th BIRTHDAY CARD


Hi and welcome to all my very talented, and craft loving friends.

Now don't faint, but I have another card again today.
I told you I have made so many lately as I have a big family. 

In the middle of this month it was my Grandson's 30th Birthday.
Well I think we all struggle with the male makes, so while visiting my dear blog friend Jackie T she showed a lovely card made with this die I have used so I just had to buy it as it will be so useful.
I have made cards before with a bottle on but had to use a template to make them, and as my eyes are not so good any more so I just had to have this die.



This is an A4 size card.
The bottle die is a John Lockwood Die.
You get the glasses die with this too.
I cut the glasses in white card, and coloured the drink with promarkers, and then I sprayed them with the Crafters Companion Spray and Sparkle Pearl Diamond which gave them a glitzy glass look which I am not sure shows up on here.
A few drops of stickles for the bubbles.

Thank you so much for your visit, and precious time.
I sure do appreciate each visit, and wonderful comment.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

I left the front card stock plain, but put an embossed piece behind my shaker design.
