Finished the mini-album

I just finished my mini-album dedicated to my doggie Tinker. She passed away in November after a very brief illness. She was only 9 years-old. I miss her like crazy. Please scroll down the page to view the mini-album in slideshow form. It is a "paper bag" album made with SU! Apple Cider DSP and matching cardstock (really rust, river rock, wild wasabi and chocolate chip). The pull-outs also have non-SU! flowers and brads. I used my round tab punch from SU! for the pull-out tabs. The album is tied together with River Rock double-stitched ribbon. Thanks for looking.

Back home

Jake and I made it safely back to Lubbock last night. We spent about 2 weeks in Richardson visiting family. Elisa and I got to do quite a bit of crafting (though it is never really enough). We tried to focus mainly on scrapbooking this time. We did make a few cards (since it was Father's Day), and we made our first "card candy". I used Berry Bliss dsp by Stampin' Up! and Elisa used a retired SU! dsp. I can't think of the name right now. I used Styled Silver hph and she used Pewter.

Filing cabinet inserts

I was hating the little labels in my filing cabinets at work so I made these. They slide in to the slots and look really cute. I haven't labeled them yet because I may change around what is in my files after summer vacation.
I used Notations DSP from SU! and non-SU! flowers and brads.

Progressive scrapbook page

I wanted to try a progressive page. You start by making a 6x6 page. Then you add that page to an 81/2x11 page. Then that goes on a 12x12. I used materials from a scrapbooking "kit" I got for Christmas. Elisa will recognize the stuff.
