Post-It Note Cover Order and My Faves Mini Book

From my mother. haha She wanted 10 for gifts before I left, so since it's snowing outside I can't really do anything else. So, I decided to be crafty today. Here is a photo of the packaging I did for one. I told her they took forever, so she just wanted this one packaged. haha

I've also been working on a mini book that I got the inspiration from Elise @ enJOY it. She's got a great blog and I love all of her projects!! I'm still in the process of making it, but here are the pages I have done so far!

Altered Composition Book

I made this for my first paying customer!! haha It took me forever because I was having a horrible time trying to get things placed. It was rough, but nice and simple was obviously what won out in the end.

I used the Pagoda cart for the Kanji character for Thought and then Calligraphy Collection cart for the word Cogitations.

Happy Early Birthday to me!!!!

In lieu of my early birthday present from my papa, I decided to make him a thank you card using my new Pagoda cart!!! WHOO!!!

So excited to play around with this cart, I just wish I had DS and wouldn't have to waste paper trying to figure out sizing...I guess that's one bad thing about a Mac...argh!!!

Note Pad Cover

First...two...count them 1-2...followers!!!! WHOO!!! Welcome!!! Now onto the important stuff! lol

Using the same technique as the post-it note covers, I decided to try to make a cover for a note pad I got at Michael's the other day. Here is the outcome!! I actually like it! haha

Also, I'm in the process of putting together an Etsy store. So, keep your eye out for it!!! I'm just trying it out to see what happens!!

Europe Album

I lived in England for three months doing my student teaching on an American Air Force Base from the end of Jan. 2009 to the beginning of May 2009. I had the most incredible time teaching, making new friends, living in dorms (believe me I did not get the college dorm experience until I lived on a military base for three months), and getting to see Europe with amazing people!! I took over 1,000 pictures, but only printed off a little over 200. So, I decided to go ahead and start my scrapbook now that I have a Cricut. It was definitely a surprise when I opened it Christmas morning. I've really enjoyed playing with it and getting the motivation to be creative, which I had for some reason lost. But, now with new toys...I'm cooking!!! haha So, here are the first few pages of my Europe album!

Post-It Note Covers

So, I've been sick since yesterday...mostly because I live in Oklahoma and have horrible allergies. Living in this state does a number on me! haha But, while I was home sick from work yesterday evening I came across this tutorial at Paper Arts. It looked like something I could do in my miserable state. So, I kinda went crazy and made 7! Three have post-it notes in them, because that was all I had just laying around. Tomorrow while I'm off work as well as my mother, we will be going to get more. haha And I'm really close to getting a Cuddlebug as well. With my 50% off coupon from Michael's it might be worth it.

The paper I used were scraps that I keep from everything I make!!! I love this idea Carole is amazing!!!!
