Display Tray

I recently made one of our DISPLAY TRAYs to show off some pictures from our trip to Echo Lake Park in Colorado.  The tray is 13 x 13 1/4 x 1 and is made of wood, painted black.  Each little rectangle fits one of our smaller Picture My Life cards (3 x 4 inches) and I used some from the LATER SK8R collection.  These cards can be used for so many things besides just the Picture My Life style of scrapbooking!  I can't wait to see if there are any new collections in the Annual Inspirations Idea Book that will go live August 1.

The top left rectangles have an 8 x 10 picture cut to fit in the 6 of them.  I like how it worked out doing that!  I still might add some small embellishments to give it a little texture but haven't decided for sure what yet.  These frames can be used for so many things and make really great gifts when done in a wedding or new baby theme!
Thanks for stopping by and be sure to come back later as CTMH is having their annual convention later this week.  Although I won't be joining a lot of fellow consultants in CA at Disneyland for all the fun and excitement,  we will be getting updates on all the announcements and new product previews!!

2nd Album in a Box

Hello!  I am so excited!  I just finished my 2nd Album in a Box and the more I make the more fun they are!  This one I used the Ariana paper pack from Close To My Heart.  Leave me a comment and let me know which one you like better, this one or the Ivy Lane one in my  previous post.
Sorry my pictures today are a little blurry!  Guess I was so excited I couldn't hold the camera still!

Remember, you can make one of these Albums in a Box at my June 28 workshop!  Check back again soon as I am going to make a couple more of these with different paper packs!
Happy Crafting!

Album in a Box Workshop

Hello!  Thanks for stopping by my blog!  Grab your glass of tea and take a look at the upcoming Album in a Box workshop I am going to be having.  The design is from fellow CTMH consultant  Kelly English-Triggs (Thank-you Kelly for sharing your talent and ideas!).
The workshop will be held Saturday, June 28, in the Fellowship Room at the Gerlaw Christian Church (go west from Galesburg on South Lake Story Road, straight at 2 stop signs and then you will come to the church) starting at 9:30 am.  The class will take a while, so if you want you can bring a lunch or take a break and run into Monmouth to get something.  The $20 class fee includes everything you will need as far as supplies, but you will need to bring your own paper trimmer, scissors, bone folder, dry embossing stylus, and adhesive.  If you don't have the bone folder and stylus let me know and I will be happy to share mine for use during the class. Please let me know by June 14 if you plan to attend the workshop.  You will need to take a look at our current paper collections and decide which pack you want to use to make your project and let me know when you sign up.
For my sample Box Album I have used our IVY LANE papers.
Here is a couple pictures of the inside of it:

As you can see I haven't added any pictures or journaling to mine yet.  I have given it to my mom for Mother's Day and am letting her add her own!  We won't be adding pictures at the workshop either unless you know what you want to use and bring them with you.
I am currently working on another one of these using the ARIANA papers.  I will post pictures of it when I get it done!  They are lots of fun to make and I hope you will join me for the workshop!
Don't forget to sign up by June 14 so I can get the paper packs ordered!
