I've been altering puzzle pieces to use on my journal covers.  I purchase the puzzles at thrift stores for 25 cents.  This puzzle had extra large pieces.



I took a napkin apart and stamped the images on the plain backside of the napkin.  It made it easier to place the image exactly where I wanted it.  Then I colored them with my gelatos.  I also added some dots with modeling paste and then punched a hole in the tab and added a charm.  I stamped the leaf and flower design on the tag and then die cut it.  With all these puzzle pieces I'll be making lots of these!

Edit: I'll include a picture with just an altered puzzle piece to make it easier to see

Here is a little paper bag album I made for our Christmas pictures.  I made a shaker pocket for the front.
The inside has pockets and tags.
These are a few of the pages.  There are also 6 large pockets which will hold all of our pictures.
And the back cover.
Another year has come and gone.  And now we're looking forward to what the new year will hold for each one of us.

Wishing you an early Happy New Year!  Thanks for visiting!

I have a confession to make. I almost forgot about our blog hop. But we all know Heartfelt Creations has an app solution for that, right?


I started with the card panel on the right but wanted to add the sentiment panel on the left. I used some Stampendous Shabby Pink embossing powder and then added the panel with pop dots. 


I cut out the flower and glove image from the 12x12 paper.


I created an embellishment with some lace, gold thread, and a bow. Then added the cutout with a glittery snowflake and  finished it off with a die cut ticket. So pretty with hardly any work!

One of my favorite things to do during the holidays is to carry these cards with me when I go shopping to give to all those 'run off their feet' cashiers, waitresses and anyone else who looks as if they need a cup of cheer.



I always have an assortment of coffee, tea, and hot chocolate to suit everyones taste.  

At least, almost every one.  If these don't work, we make do with chocolate!

The first thing I will have to do is apologize for using a paper pack that is no longer available.  I've been working on this journal for 2 months and forgot to check again before I posted.  However, there are some products used that are still available.
I used a hard cover and cut out the center.  It's covered with crumbled up sewing tissue paper, painted black, then dry brushed with white and gold.

I used the easy twine method for the spine.

I'll post a video that shows the entire book.  It's much easier than taking photos of all the pages.

Can you believe it's only 4 months till Christmas!?  This summer has flown by so fast and it seems as if I say that each year.  But it is true, the older one gets, the faster time goes by.

I stamped the birds on vintage music paper and then paper pieced the birds.  I hope this gives you a little inspiration for your Christmas cards.

Today I'm sharing a card made with the beautiful Raindrops on Roses paper collection.  I've always wanted to create one of these pleated cards and finally 'got around to it'.  Yep! Finally got one of those.  Hope I don't loose it.  And yes, I'm really thinking of you and thank you for visiting me for these blog hops.  You are much appreciated!

What do you do with catalogs that you haven't ordered besides throw them in the trash?  I learned recently that they make awesome journals.

I've been wanting to make a collection of my favorite songs and decided to use this magazine as my base.  I combined 2 stamps by masking the edge of the water and adding the tree.  


The main image was colored with Prismacolor pencils; the background was done with chalks.  


The words were printed from the computer and cut out with the tags die.  Does anyone know the words to this song?  It was one of my favorites when I was growing up.

We spent the last 2 weeks at the hospital with our daughter (she is home now and doing great) but that is why I am sharing a very simple card this month.  This is what is so great about the pre-made card fronts in the paper packs.  It's so easy to create quick, beautiful cards.

I did a little paper piecing and then used pop dots to raise some of the cups.  A little bit of Stickles and Wink of Stella for some glitter and a bit of lace for some softness.

Whooo is expecting a new granddaughter in July?


What makes this even more exciting is that the doctor had told them there was very little chance of becoming pregnant.  But God had other plans and now we are having fun making plans to celebrate.  I stamped the image on the background and then cut around the bottom portion so that it would overlap the invitation.
