When a 14 year old deserves a "COOL" card!

My son wanted a low key Birthday! How can that be with a mom who wants to tell the world how smart, witty and wonderful her 14 year old son has become? I made his this over the top card instead. Using @KarenBurniston 1011-Katherine Label Pop-Up in two directions as it opens. I love the movement with this die. I hope you enjoy it also and it give you inspiration to challenge your next card using this die!

I made this totally interactive Christmas Mini Album for a Secret Sister Swap. I am going with a Christmas in July theme for all her gifts. I had the idea to make this album and use 1/2 inch gussets for the hidden hinge. The interactive elements where so so fun and allow for 30+ pictures to be added even though this a 6x6 album with only 8 pages. I can't wait to see what she thinks of this! Leave me a comment and let me know what you think!

Shaker Camara Box with Mini Album inside

I spent my Mother's Day doing what I love best, CRAFTING! This Shaker Mini Album, using @Queenandcompany Pop Ups, Diamonds and Glitter, was lots of fun to create. I have seen many pictures of them and decide to set out to make my own from scratch. I just let my imagination take me through this project. If you know some basic box making then you can probably make this yourself!

I love how these handmade Christmas Cards turned out! I used the Heartfelt Creations die and stamps to make these festive cards. Then I made the box using chipboard and coordinating paper. They sold at an auction to benefit a local pet rescue here in Texas.
