and please email with your information's on to FAB FRIDAYS

On fridays we are going to take this day each week to inspire you
with mini projects and cards and whatever else we can dream up for you!

Our brand new mini 6x6 paperpacks are so fun to create with 
and you can make mini albums and cards and mini projects in no
time at all and still have paper left over. Doesn't that sound great?

  Our Emily designed this fun envelope album of her recent trip to CHA
and filled it with photos of everyone that she met and her plane tickets
and CHA pass too. Doing mini's is fun because you can fill them with
lots of tiny details and it looks just adorable!

Karen Taylor cut lots of strips and stitched them 
together before she added an embossed spellbinders
die cut with a cute ribbon, flower, pearls and sticker at the bottom.
This is really a gorgeous and elegant card!

Karen also made this frame and handmade the flowers 
out of the travel mini set and added some silk leaves, pearls,
inking and a punched border on each edge of the frame.
 There are lots of cute little details that Emily put on her 
Travel frame that she is going to give as a gift to her husband.
Be sure and click on the photo to see them up close because it is so cute.

Wouldn't it be perfect to have a special bookmark
to save the pages on the books you read while traveling?
Tina used an acrylic bookmark and added paper and
the tiny planes and clouds that she cut out with Helmar
vellum adhesive.  It's so cute to have a bookmark that you can see through!
Karen T created this tag with lots of layers
and used one of our mini tags in the center.
She added some of our new mini letters,
then she inked it to give it an old antique look,
added a gorgeous piece of satin ribbon  and even
put a gorgeous wax seal at the bottom! 
Sometimes in life you have something special you would like
to do so Tina created this tin to collect the money that
she needs to go to CHA in summer of 2011. She used
an old hot chocolate tin and adhered the papers with
her Helmar quick fix adhesive runner and added some quick dry 450 
around the edges to hold them better. She tied some jute around 
the center and tied on a couple of chipboard elements.  
Simple- yet really cute!

Sandy layered lots of papers and stickers from our new mini's
andif you look close, she even cut out the baby boys die cut
and put it in the middle of the postage die cut.  This is
such a cute idea to make to send to friends telling them
about a new move you just made!
 Kim used a scallop punch to layer the paper at the bottom
of her card with our brown airplane paper and popped up the
 Escape sticker on the side to make this really fun card.

Our guest designer Amarilys Doria also created this
altered photo album with our travel papers. You can
change just about anything you can find and make it
more personal to you by altering it with lots of cute paper
and embellishments to suit your taste!

Our next project comes to us from Irit in Isreal who
designed this really cute mini album to remember 
her trip to Italy.  She filled it with lots of bits and pieces
of our travel papers and added lots of stickers and embellishments 
to coordinate with the photos that she picked to use in the book.

Venice is such a gorgeous city to visit!

Jona altered her fun journal with paper and 
stickers but went one step further and used
a stencil and misted the clock on the front of her
book.  It gives it such a vintage effect and really
makes it unique!  Great job Jona!

We hope you got some great ideas this week with our
travel ideas and be sure and stop back next week for
some fun projects using our Jubilee Collection of papers!

Have a great weekend....
