Family 4x4 Mini Scrapbook Album

Every year I give my parents a fun little year in review of the grandchildren in the form of a mini book, plaque, or some sort of crafty item with pictures of that year.  I am a little late in getting the 2017 book to them, I usually give it to them as a Christmas present, but time got away on me and we did not see them for Christmas this past year.  So long story short, I got it done in time for our summer visit and made it a fun little 4x4 mini album with 6 front and back pages on it.


Here is a video on how to make this mini scrapbook album.



I used the Adornit Family scrapbook pages that already had 4x4 sections on a page, so cutting them up was super easy!  The front page was one of those 4x4 sections so all I had to do was write in the year and the theme of the album.


The back of the front page is the family picture we have, I think it is the only one, for 2017.



The next couple of pages are also 4x4 sections from the scrapbook paper that I added a couple of stickers to the complete the page.




So now the the family picture is out of the way, down to the kids.  I went from eldest to youngest, so we start with my son Morgan.  This picture was taken on a beach in BC when he found one of many craps on that trip.



Another couple more pages all about family without pictures. I like the break of all the pictures with some fun "junque" pages to make it fun.





Next is my son Brandon.  This picture was taken at a water park and I just love his expression, he really does take the best pictures!!



The my sweet little Catherine.  She posed for me with some cute bunny years that Easter.


I loved this sticker and tried to place it on previous pages in the book, finally I found a page where it worked wonderfully!


And the last page, I loved this phrase and knew it would be perfect for the back cover of the mini book.



All the embellsihemnts, pages glued together, and the pcitures to the pages are held together with Supertite Dual Tip Max Glue Pen.  It has 2 ends that can work for large surfaces like adding the pictures to the pages, or adding the fine detail of small amounts of glue for the buttons to stick to the paper.

Burlap and Foiled Star Card for Any Occasion

Cards can be a simple blend of a few different types of textures of papers.  One of the most striking is the blend of burlap and foil to make a stunning card for any occasion. 



Here is the video on how to make this card from start to finish.


I created with card with the theme of stars for the Just Cards Video Hop that goes on every month.  I it is a fun challenge that a few of us card makers do to push out cardmaking skills, and this month was stars, galaxy, or space; so I did stars!  Make sure to check out my video for the links to all the other cards in the video hop!



So since the theme of the cards was galaxy or stars, I chose the star idea for the basis of my card.  I punched a bunch of stars out of the Rinea foiled Gold Star Struck paper and backed it with the Ebony Glossy paper.  I also added one large star as the focal point and added a button to the center with a little of the smae burlap from the background for the bow.



The entore card is held together with Supertite Dual Tip Max Glue Pen.  It has 2 ends that can work for large surfaces like adding the burlap to the cardbase, or adding the fine detail of small amounts of glue to the punched out section of the gold foil section.

Felt Monster Tooth Fairy Pillows

My younger two kids are at the age when we are losing teeth, so I thought lets make some cute tooth pillows to add to the fun of losing tooth.  So instead of the generic tooth fairy, we made tooth monster pillow, which are the shape of a tooth, but flipped upsidedown!  Add a little pouch in the front and make it all out of fun colors of felt and you are set!



Here is a video on how to make these fun pillows





A few really simple supplies are needed to make these cute pillows.  First I start by making a paper template of a tooth, which is the monster flipped upsidedown, then a few fun colors of felt, some buttons, and a needle and thread.  I also used some Joy Iron on Varsity letters for the back of each little tooth monster so my kids would not fight over whose was whose, let's hope that works, hehe.



I started off making the orange pillow as my practice one, but shortly after my son came over and asked to learn how to sew.  AWESOME!!!  He is 8 and I fully feel that everoyne should learn the basics of sewing with a needle and thread.  So half of this little orange monster he sewed all on his own!



I then make the blue one for the video, I changed up a few things, like sewing on all the teeth and altering the shape a tiny bit, but really these are so easy and fun it is a great starting off project for kids to learn how to sew.



So to stop the kids from fighting we put the frist inital of each kid on the back of the pillow.  They are Joy Iron on letter in the Varsity font and perfect for this project! The blue one my son picked for himself, so he got the black B on the back.


My daughter picked the orange monster as her tooth pillow, so she got a red C on the back.


What color of tooth monster will you little one pick to make?
