Thomas the Tank Engine Day....

For all of you that have kids that love Thomas and  all his special friends on the Railway lines  are going to love this book that our  Guest Designer  Mireille Divjak made special for us with our  I love America Collection.  She is from Holland so since they don't have independence day the patriotic papers went perfect to create this mini book for the very special and most wonderful day her son and bff had with  Thomas the Tank Engine...   "Thomas the Train" by Mireille Divjak be sure and click on the photos to see all the details....

Mini Albums from our 6x6's

For the next 3 days we will be showing you lots of ideas for quick and easy mini albums to make from our mini pads. The cool thing about them is they have 2 sheets of each paper and you get tags and mini die cuts  and then all you need is  some stickers or chipboard and maybe a few extra things to put in with it from your stash...   Each of our DT made a diffrent style of album so you will have lots of great ideas to use... "Princess Mini Album" by Alicia Barry These are really quick albums that you can make by folding a  sheet of 12x12 in half  and then folding it again 3x3x3x3 and creating little pockets that you can put photos in and  journaling.  Just add stickers and lace from our Princess Ballerina line and you have an adorable book to remember a really fun and special event. supplies: All papers and stickers are from our 6x6 princess pad and stickers too.  Punches from Martha Stewart, ribbon and flowers.

Lots of Fantastic projects with Spellbinders....

Being a partner with Spellbinders this year is a real treat for our Design Team.  There are endless possibilites for using the dies and with them you can create some  really fantastic pages, cards and projects !!! Our Design Team today each got different die and made something really incredibly cute with it to share with you!! "H20 page" by Karen Taylor  Karen created these really cute flowers using a die cut from Spellbinders.  It is just gorgeous how she used  the paper to create this flower and this super cute page!!   I die cut  Labels Fourteen die templete with the  Spellbinders Grand Calibur  and folded as shown.  I then folded the die in half the other way. Glued the two sides  together forming a petal.  Repeated 3 more times and  adhered them together forming a flower as shown.
