Prayer Notepad

This is the cutest little notepad with such an awesome use. It is going to be used as my prayer notepad. I can write down things I am thankful for or people that I am lifting up in prayer. When it is full more pages can be added and some can be replaced.
My boss gave me a couple of notepads and I took them apart and stamped 1/2 of the pages with PKS Blushing Bride faces and the other 1/2 with each of the sentiments from K Andrew Designs "Scripture Sayings" stamp set.
The cover is made with 2 medium weight pieces of chipboard covered with cardstock from the Graphic 45 "Playtimes Past" collection. I then used the Cinch to punch holes in the cover and papers and bind it together.
Here it is all embellished with Prima flowers, 3GirlJam Crinkle Ribbon, CraftworkCards "Candi" and Karen Foster Metals "Old Type Puzzle Alphabet". I really do like the slight vintage vibe.

Visitation Calendar

To keep track of the grandkids visitation schedule with the ex-son-in-law I made this CD Calendar.
Next time I make one I will make it double sided. Each month is on a seperate piece of cardstock and it is a little bulky and won't completely close. It is ok because we will not be closing it but if I make one for someone else I will put one month on each side of the cardstock so it will actually close.

Year Two Mini album

I have been wanting to make this type of mini since I saw it on one of the crafting shows a year ago. I finally found the perfect reason. It will become my granddaughter's "Year Two" album. I have another made for my grandson's "Year Two" album I just need to get some pictures taken. There are no photos added just yet but hopefully they will be added this week sometime.

Magnetic Closure Album

Oh My Gosh I can't believe I have been away for an entire week. I have been so sick but was feeling much better yesterday so I finally got some time in my craft cave and was able to run through Carri's Birthday Blog Hop also. It was a lot of fun and saw some very pretty projects. If you are looking for some wonderful inspiration head over and hop through yourself and give Carri some birthday wishes. It all starts HERE!!!

This is what I was able to create yesterday. I saw the tutorial for this project on My Craft Channel. The tutorial shows 8x8 but I made mine 6x6 and I think I am going to make some smaller ones filled with lined paper.

First Mini Album

I am so excited that I made my very first mini album. It is the first year of my oldest granddaughter's life. I came to a very sad realization while making this mini..... We do not have very many pictures. We have tons of photos of our grandson's first 3 years because he lived with us but we have failed our granddaughter in the mega memory department.

It started with a Sentiment

This little monkey dude makes me smile every time I see him. So when I wanted to use this super cute Crafty Sprouts sentiment and went looking for an adorable monkey this little guy was just the right fit. Then the idea of making him look like he was swinging through the jungle and it had been a while since I made a tent card and it was the perfect card style and they are so much fun.
