option for December dailies album

Recently I put together the 'guts' for a mini-album. It was for the Nov paper craft swap for Paper Wishes message board. The swap organizer asked that we do something non-flat. I got permission to do a mini-album. On Dec 25's page there is a fold-out section. The recipient can decide if she wants to post photos, snips of gift-wrap, record favorite Christmas carols' title and/or lyrics, etc.

Look on the blog page for some scanned photos I took of the album.

P.S. Hope you a blessed day of giving thanks!

More quick cards

Oh! This week was busier than I thought it would be! Trying to carve out time for crafting has been hard. As a result, I've got 2 more quick cards to show.

Hope you think they are too cute--2 cute!!!

Quick cards

In the midst of getting updated flyers out to various locations for the crafter/vendor event next Tuesday, I've had needs to get cards (get well/thinking of you/b-i-l bday) mailed out to some relatives on both my side and my husband's side as well as monthly swaps signed up for and my 2010 resolution to mail monthly birthday and anniversary postcards for family.

So for me quick cards usually consist of color blocking sections of cardstock with an embellishment or pattern paper with ribbon and/or embellishment (stickers, rhinestones, ....).

Look at several posted today. (captions=quick & easy)

adding doodling, outlining to creative works

I thought I'd reflect a moment or so about being encouraged in one of the November swaps for PWMB to get back to "doodling". My interpretations are to highlight outlines of cut-outs or shapes and to add detailing doodles to stenciling. See recent leaf/thanks card and love/anniv card photos.

Reminder to read yesterday's post & see latest creations

I really like the idea of the December dailies album. Once it gets closer, I'll start showing photos of some of my pages.

Until then, more cards and stuff!
