Christmas Mini Bag, Tags and Fastenator

Just completed this project as a gift for the ladies in my card making course. It would make a cute hostess gift as well. Check my You Tube video for details and learn how to make this mini bag as well as the tags and the "fastenator". Click here. The tags are made from old Christmas cards using a Cricut and the fastenator is made with a cut out from a Christmas Card that has been laminated and then had a binder clip glued to it so that it can be used on a Christmas Bag or Gift.

Christmas Mini Album made with Envelope Punch Board

Just finished my latest project.

I created a Christmas Mini Album using the "We R Memory Makers" Envelope Punch Board.


This album includes plenty of space for pictures and journaling. It also includes four mini decorative file folders that slip into pockets for more pictures and journaling.


The unique feature about this album is that is uses old Christmas Cards as picture and journaling blocks. Even the seasonal messages are cut from old cards and can be used for journaling. Check out the instructions for making this album on my You Tube Channel (click here).

Also, if you want to see the three projects I will be doing at my next workshop - Christmas Tree made from an old Paperback Book, an Exploding Box and four different Christmas Cards - check out this video on YouTube.

Scrap Album

Scrap Album:

This album was created with random scraps of patterned paper. It took about one hour to complete. I was not concerned with matching papers; I just used them as they were, created pockets with some, and added tags from ones I had left over from other projects. See the video at 





Steam Punk Album

Steam Punk Album:

This album is made from three file folders. My theme was Steam Punk which is a cross between vintage Victorian and tech. I make the album in the grunge style because I think it suits Steam Punk. You can see the album in more detail in my video at
