Documented -- August Blog Hop

Love these hops, if you've never been on one, here is how it works...(if you know, just skip this paragraph)  You read my post, or skim it and just look at the pictures and at the end of the post there will be Name of the next blog in the hop.  Click on this name and you get to see what someone else created using the same paper, or layout or whatever the criteria is for that particular hop.  There is usually a master list on someone's hop (and this will be noted in my post near the end) so if you get lost or a link is broken, you can check out the master list and pick up where you left off.   A simple and easy way to find ideas for your next project.

This hop travels across Canada from Coast to Coast and features Close to my Heart Consultants featuring Close to my Heart products.  So if you like what you see and want to recreate it, visit my website  or your local Close to my Heart Consultant.

If you came from  Kresten's you were just in La Broquerie, MB

And now you're here with me in Three Hills, AB.

I hope you like this mini album.

This is Me--my version of the Cut Above Layout Kit

Yep, if you follow my me, you know I don't follow directions well.  I'm always looking for another way to use something.

Well this kit was a wozzers of project.  I took a 3--2page layouts and turned them into a baby book

This is what you could make if you followed the directions included in the Cut Above Layout Kit--This is ME

Three lovely 2 page layouts.

Or with the addition of some cricut cuts 
and some paper from CTMH's Fresh Air and a few stamped images you could make
something this...

Any album that ends with a Dr. Suess quote has gotta be good.

Post Card Perfect Mini Album--May Promo--my way

Those of you who have followed my work in the past, may have thought I dropped off the face of the earth, actually, life got in the way of creativity, but I think I'm back.  Inspired by the SE2 Launch and the request from Nancy Klein for some items for the Operation Smile Silent Auction and the up coming Postcard Perfect Promo, I looked through my (keep me in active status) stash, and yes! I had purchased a CC5185 bundle. (This gave me cardstock, patterned paper and a cut above layout kit, enough to create a mini album with)  I added a few sheets of basic cardstock, and some Z3354 (Inspire) complements.  Although if I would have had time, I would have ordered the Z3355 (Happy Moments) complements as I think they would have worked better.
I decided to use one of our old mini albums (same size as the Z9996 Everyday Albums) because I had one, and it's the perfect size for a project/gift.
I can't give you any directions other than the notes on these photos cause someone else has the album now, and I was in a rush to make it.  It took me about 7hrs from start to finish, with no guidelines.  The only tools I used were adhesive, paper trimmer, scissors, corner rounder, hole punch and thumb notch punch that we used to carry.

Although this promotion is over, you can still purchase the paper pack while quantities last.
