File Folder Album

I have finished a file folder mini album for a Christmas gift!  Yes, for Christmas 2013!  This was a class taught at Urban Scrapbook by a wonderful instructor, Nicole!  I really had a lot of fun making this project and although it was time consuming, I am really happy with how it turned out.

There are lots and lots of pockets and fold out sections for photos or tickets or journaling.

This is photo heavy here!

This was made using three file folders.  The papers are from Kaiser Craft - The Secret Admirer line; die cuts are from Tim Holtz and Spellbinders.  I inked the title panel with Colorbox pigment inks.

I am entering this one into the Fussy and Fancy challenge where the topic is "Spring Days"!  I think the colors and patterns look like spring!  Hope you think so too!

I would love to hear what you think of this!  If you would like any other details, just send an email and I will try to answer!!

House Reorganizing

I mentioned in that first post that I am reorganizing three rooms in my house.  The first room was putting in floor to ceililng bookshelves and was a major time consumer.  I have many, many, many books and this took a long time to pack them up, get the bookcases from Ikea and get them up and then organize all those books.  I will take pics of that room later.

I am now working on the third room (second was the sewing room and done)!  I am probably crazy to show what this looks like and embarassed but here goes!

I started pulling stuff out of the craft room to figure out plan how I was going to organize it.  That pile is only part of what I have to sort out.

This is my desk (working table) right now!  I am working on a Christams gift!  Yes, for 2013!  I hope to have that finished later today and maybe get it posted.  I took a break from the "work" just to make something!!  Once the gift is ready, I will be back at the sorting and organizng!!

Would love to hear how you sort and organize and clean up your craft spaces and any comments on the post are welcome and appreciated.

Where In the World Have I Been?

Has anyone missed me?  I haven't been doing a lot of stamping for many reasons (excuses), and too many to list.  I have been rearranging THREE rooms in my house and it takes up huge chunks of time.

This post is to show you a little bit of what is happening.

I moved my sewing room from the basement to a bedroom upstairs as the "craft" room downstairs was just overflowing and the room upstairs wasn't being utilized.  SO, the move!  Huge project but that one is done.

I made this Jenny Haskins inspired pillow as the first sewing project in the NEW room.

The heart in the center is machine embroidered and has a ribbon weaving in the middle of it and the flowers and butterfly was also machine embroidered.  I like how this came out!  Here is one close up of the center for you.
I would love to hear what you think of this and appreciate all comments!!
