A few pieces of sheer ribbon broke up the solid look of the dotted swiss. Finally I am prepared for a "birthday" that I know I will forget (I usually miss at least one a year). Better late than never!
I need a gift for a swap and decided to use some of my "All a Flutter" (Mariposa) cards for the gift. Lauren from MTME has designed some fabulous templates for packaging everything you make (including jams and jellies). I used one of her templates to make this box which holds cards and envelopes. I carried the "All A Flutter" theme from the cards to the outside of the box.
There are 5 cards/envelopes in this box with room for 2 or 3 more depending on the layers on the cards and the thickness of the embellishments .
I just finished making some mini photo albums. I have made these, in the past, for my grandchildren and personalized the outside of the albums with their names and the specific day they are celebrating (birthday, dance recital). These 2 albums are for "just in case" I need a quick gift!
Clear A2 envelopes are used to make the pages which hold the photos. This next album has a matching note pad.
A "memory" stamp was used on the top of the pages as shown below.
