Didn't know using an SVG could be so easy

I found a cut file and fell in love, so I hooked up Romeo (yes, my cameo has a name!) and he cut like butter (as usual!). I had a glass cabinet door that a friend had given me and thought I would see what it looked like.

I liked it but didn't LOVE it so I thought I would try again on a cabinet door that I had painted and was going to put a saying on....all I can say is that I love this one sooooo much better!!!

You can't tell from the picture but I did add some Star Dust stickles to the star above Mary. I have already hung it on the wall about the fire place. My husband even commented that he liked it :) (although he DID add that he thinks I should add a coat of statin polyurethaine to it)

Paper Bag Recipe Album Kit

I have wanted to  make a paper bag album forever but couldn't find any ideas that I liked.
I found this kit at Archiver's and decided to see what it looked like put together. I love it! Too bad I don't cook much, guess I will have to find someone to give it to!

Nutcracker Mini Album

A dear friend's daughter is dancing in the Nutcracker again this year and when I saw this Graphic 45 paper pack I knew I had to make her something. I thought I would use my Wizard of Oz kit instructions and see if I could make something from scratch.

The Graphic 45 paper pack I used:

I used chipboard for the cover and covered it with paper. I used pop dots to raise Clara.
Here is the inside cover and page 1
Page 1 opened
My thought is that everywhere you see a blank beige paper you can put photos or souveniers in that spot (there are lots of pockets)
with the flap open

Thats it!

this is what the kit looked like, it was full sheets of paper that you had to fussy cut and then fit together, the instructions were VERY hard to follow but I finally figured it out
