Crafts: Tropical Travelogue Mini Album

You can make this mini album with just a single 12″ sheet of paper, which is great! Decorate it with your favorite paper & embellishments and just have fun! This Graphic45 paper is so pretty, it was hard to cut up but I really like the result. As you can see in the video, I did make a mistake and now the album opens up the wrong way, but that’s okay.

You can see more pictures and the video after the jump!

Crafts: Vintage Circus Postcard

I still had some great Graphic45 paper laying around from the “Le Cirque Collection” and decided to make this postcard! I also used some embossing and ink. The card turned out a little different than I planned, but I am happy with the result. It reminds me of the old Big Top, the Ringling Brothers… How exciting it must have been to visit the circus in the early 1900’s… Quick tip: if you are in the mood for a great circus movie, watch “Water for Elephants”. It stars Robert Pattinson & Reese Witherspoon and I really love it. Here are some pictures and yes, I made a video. The list of materials I’ve used are below the video. Enjoy!
