Cancun Mini Album

Well I finished a really quick mini album. These are pics from our trip to Cancun in 2005....I have been wanting to get these into an album and when I heard of photo album scrapbooking...I knew it would be a fast way to get this done. Photo album scrapbooking is taking a regular album here I used a cute one from target that was 2 up, and combining it with embellishments and journaling. Stacy Julian from Big Picture scrapbooking talks about this and it is a great way to do a cute album quickly! Sorry about the glare from the page protectors....

My Scrap Space

I've been wanting to post some pics of my space. We moved my boys room to a bigger area on our first floor and I decided to make this the craft/school/computer room!!
Well.....mostly the scraproom!! HeHeHe!! It is still a work in progress but I just cleaned up a bit and thought I would share these while you can still see the worktop and the floor!

This is from the the left what you don't see is the kids computer area and an open closet with lots of shelves with books and supplies for our homeschooling adventures... what you do see are my shelves with my cardstock and embellys organized by library of memories storage albums and my wide format printer. A wood table that my kids usually use for crafts or if they are scrapping with me...right now I am in the middle of LOM and so I am using it to sort photos and other stuff. You also see my wire cubes that hold all my printed paper. Directly in front of you is a cart that has my sizzix on it and a turn table with my punches.

This shows my work space. I love this L shape as I can really spread out. And I really love my peg board!! Thanks Hubby!!! All the product I use the most is hanging right at my finger tips!! I try to keep like items together so it is some what organized....right now I have a wooden shelf (thrift store find!!) that is holding my clear cd cases with my stamps... it is above my wire cubes. You can see my slice, sewing machine, laptop, cutter and all my tools within reach. The wire shelves under the counter hold adhesives, all my brads and fasteners and I have a draw full of my flowers...

This is a close up of my wall art....I got this over at onceuponadesign
and I found these shelves that are big enough to hold my ribbon jars.

This is another shot of my work space. I love to see what I have and so this system works great for me. What I usually do is when I get new product I will find a place for it on the peg board....every couple months I will go through and pull some and put it in the draws on my shelf that are organized by color. I am definitely a color scrapbooker and this works for me! The cute round bulletin boards I made from fabric and embroidery hoops....sooo easy and very cute!!

Like I said it is a work in progress..still need curtains and some other things but I did it all from items we already had and thrift store finds.....I hope you enjoyed the tour!!

A Special Badge Album

Things have been quiet here...I've been busy with life. We just found out my Dad has cancer so I have been processing that and trying to be supportive to my Mom. Out of that desire came this little we know that God is in control and my families faith is being strengthened through it all....but I thought it would be good for my Mom to have at her fingertips some key scripture that speaks to her and will help her to keep her focus on Gods strength especially when hers is weak.
So I have made this badge album for her to keep in her purse. The scripture cards are done digitally and I can change them for her when she would like. The album is made from plastic badge holders I picked up at Staples, rings and ribbon. Very simple but it came out really cute. It should fit in a purse easily!
If you happen by please send up a prayer for my Dad, we would really appreciate it!!
