Matchbook Christmas Mini's

Had I a lot fun creating these mini's for two of my sister in laws and four close friends.  I learned how to make these from Kathyorta on you tube. She is a very talented scrapper.  I used four different paper lines that I bought at my local Michaels. Two were from K and Company's Vision of Christmas collection. Except one was the designer paper and the other was the specilty paper.  The other two were both Recollections one was the Warm Wishes collection the other one is The Ballet collection.

This one was made for my sister-in-law out in British Columbia I loved the colours in this paper collection.

These are paper bag mini's, I used the paper bags from Michaels. On the closer I used berries I also found at Michaels.
I love how thin these mini's are, most of the people I made these for are not scrap bookers. So I left them pretty simple. But I couldn't really embellish too much then they wouldn't close.

Thanks for looking!!!!

Luka on Sled

I love this stamp I bought from One Crazy Stamper in Bolton, Ontario Canada.  I was so excited to make a card with this stamp he is so cute.  The stamp is Luka on Sled by La- La- Land Crafts.

For this card I used stampin' up cardstock Whisper White and Marina Mist.  For the background I used
a snowflake stamp from the $1.50 bin at Michaels, and stamped it in Whisper White ink. I coloured the stamp using my copics. For his skin I used E00, E000 and for his cheeks R20.  For the hat, scarf, shoe and collar I used R39 and R59. For his shirt I used G24 and G21.  For his pants and the sled runners I used W4 and W6. And for the hair, dog and sled I used
E35, E33 and E25. 

I left the inside of the card simple. I used a Tim Holtz die hanging sign and tied some stampin' up baker's twine. And for the sentiment is from Four the Holidays stamp set from stampin' up. 

Hope everyone had a Merry Christmas.

For the inside of the card I used an embossing folder Northern Flurry from Stampin' Up. I used a sponge and lighly went over the embossed snowflakes with whisper white ink. The greeting stamp is from Four the Holidays by Stampin' Up.

Mom's Birthday Recipe Mini Album

I'm a little late posting this mini album I made my mom back in October. This is my first attempt at doing a recipe mini.  I used Melissa Frances Kitschy Kitchen paper collection.  I also used for the cover and most of the pages the From My Kitchen cricut cartridge.
For the pockets I used a martha stewart punch and destressed everything with Tim Holtz's vintage photo distress ink.  The stamp on the pocket is from the $1.50 bin at Michaels.

I used Prima flowers with brads from Doodlebug Bon Appetit Collection. Happy Birthday Mom!!!
