Close Ups of Accordian Album Pages

9 x 9 Accordian Album (memory showcase)

Busy Week

Last week I made over 50 pre-made pages at home and at a crop. I like to do this with my retired paper packs or random papers from Hobby Lobby or Archiver's etc. This way I have to choose them and use them up. It also frees up alot of room for those new paper packs to come. :) It seems that I have SOOO much paper that I don't choose the older papers, for layouts. I tend to go for the newer stuff. This way, when I am away from home I can make pages by taking the paper pack(s) and either Cherish, Reflections, Imagine and now Magic, some adhesive, and cutter and crank out pages until the paper is GONE. It is a system I really like. I hope you enjoy! Happy Creating!

I bought these at a garage sale. A gal from high school and a friend made these BEAUTIFUL pages. I just wanted to share them. Thanks BJG!!!

Ok, they are not in the order I had hoped. Oh, well! :)

9 Extremely Quick Cards

I used the left overs from my Emporium paper Level 1 and made these cards in minutes. I know, VERY simple. Do people keep cards? I don't know. Some do. Some don't. The stamp set was the March Stamp of the Month called "A Little Everything."

Simple Pleasures

This paper pack is retired. Years ago my upline had a class on these with a cute envelope to put them in. I made 4 more sets of cards.

Used scraps of Twitterpated Level 1

Emporium Cards

Below I used Emporium to make 6 cards from a Level 1 kit. I never finished them until now.

CTMH Club Recipe Book

I was in a Close To My Heart Club for 3 years. Once we had everyone bring as many recipes as they wanted to share with everyone. (So, we had to write or type them out on a 4x6 card.) Then we put them into a 6x6 page protector and was supposed to trace the top of a clear stamp envelope and cut it out and stamp it the way we wanted. I never got around to it, so I put mine into Flip Flaps and stuck them together with the adhesive. (If the pages for some reason don't want to stick together, use glue dots.) I then took 3 glue dots on each of the front and back sticky part of the strip and added a green twill, you could use ribbon. I then took 2 brads and put them through my layers of flip flaps and cut off the excess part you could see. I used Pansy Purple cardstock for the front and back covers and then used my Cricut for the lettering. I didn't use tabs, I just put the recipes in the order that I wanted.
Have Fun!
