I love you

There is a super cute stamp blog called Paper Smooches, and they have some adorable ideas, and some free digi stamps...
So I created a card with a couple of those, to go in my sons lunch tomorrow...

Cherish you

We recently went to visit my parents in Montana, and Lasting Memories, gave me the perfect idea for a page, since truly we do cherish our time with them. I added some Martha Stewart butterfly punches. 
Here is my layout for the Lasting Memories Challenge Cherish Challenge...

Mini Album (holiday)

I wanted to make something for Christmas to give away, and decided on some mini albums
this one is made of 4 toilet paper cardboard rolls (I have stacks of these saved up) ha, and some coordinating pattern paper...
Loads of fun to make since it goes so quick

I am entering this in a couple challenges:
Friday Mashup! use something recycled
Let's see if I can share some easy instructions:
You will need a few pieces of coordinating paper
and ribbon, and 4 toilet paper rolls
I use a heavy book to smash them flat
after they are flat, I cover them with paper

ex: see they are flattened :)

Once you have all 4 covered with your paper of choice, you need to punch two holes in the end
(I also put in eyelets but you don't have too--I am showing one with and w/o)
OR, you can use your zutter, and connect them like the 2nd ex.
(also, I love to ink all the edges, but I am into OVER-doing)
So then you just put them all together, and attach little loose leaf rings to the (punched holes)
I add a bunch of ribbon as well....
As for the band on the front, that is a "belly band" I just made it to hold it all together nicely...
*on another note, on my album I added little page fling flips (very ingenious name I gave it right?) ha
I'm so into technical talk ha....
Anyhow, I just made a piece of paper with the heighth and depth dimensions and cut it short, and scored a line at the end, and placed it in my t/p roll, to add another "page"
maybe my pic will show you better...what I am rattling on about....

 OK have fun making one!! :)
