New Kit Available- Are We There Yet? Vacation Mini Album

Darcie created this super cute mini album, the perfect place for your favorite vacation snapshots.

She combined the wonderful Scooter's Vacation glazed papers by Imaginisce, with their coordinating puffed stickers, tags, die cuts, ribbon and trim, chipboard, and pockets and topped it off with an acrylic cover.

The pages of this album are all custom die cut for you, so all you have to do is assemble and add the finishing touches. As always we include full color step by step instructions.

My Circle of Friends Hoop Album Sneak Preview

This beautiful project is full of some great shabby chic techniques including antique glittered frames, handmade pearl sprays, dictionary flowers, crepe paper rosettes, button dangles, lace rosettes, trinket pins and many more gorgeous embellishments.

The basis for this mini book is wood embroidery hoops, the paper collection is Lilac House by Fancy Pants, Kerry also used lots of beautiful trims by Maya Road and May Arts.

This project is all about the details. Enjoy!

A Few of My Favorite Things Sneak Preview

We wanted to show you a few more views of this clever and cool project.

The basis for each page is an envelope or a pocket. Some are hand folded, some a re-purposed envelopes. So many great ideas to use in other mini books and layouts.

Darcie used the cool My Minds Eye Lost & Found collection, Paper Accents kraft envelopes, canvas, chipboard, Cosmo Cricket letters and then added many more of her fantastic touches for a truly unique mini book.

Family Moments Library Tray Sneak Previews

Here are a few more views of this wonderful project.

In addition to this clever brand new Library Tray we are using the 7 Gypsies Avignon Paper and Tags, Gypsy Ephemera, 7 Gypsies Family Stickers, 7 Gypsies Market Labels, 7 Gypsies Journal Pages, Tim Holtz texture plates, hand dyed seam binding, and lots of other fun goodies.

This is a big tray- 11" deep- so you have lots of room to display your photos. I plan to put a copy of all of my photos for the year in my tray rather than have them tucked away in a photo album. But, if you don't want to use that many photos we also devised a way to use part of the tray and still keep all of the dividers and photos from falling over. Ahh, such clever chicks!
