All Boy Mini Album


Today I have a mini album to share.

This album is in blue, mint and white and is suitable for a boy. On the cover I cut an image from the paper and mounted it above the corresponding image on the paper. It was then covered in glossy accents.

There are six internal pages

There are tabs, tags and pockets which allow plenty of room for photos, drawings, journaling and little treasures, etc.

I have used a variety of papers, (mostly Kaisercraft Childs Play), and other embellishments.

The end.

Recipe Books...

Good morning,

Following along the lines of my recipe boxes, I have created two recipe books. They are both pink and feature cupcakes on the covers...

Tabbed sections feature Favourites, Starters, Mains, Desserts, Cakes and Drinks.

Each section has a pocket to place cards or other recipes in and has a few pages for those hand written recipes.

Note, I have bound the album using rings - which means you can add pages if required.

Many people including myself, use the internet to find recipes, but I still have a few favourites kept in books...

just like the chocolate cake I baked for my Husbands Birthday!
Have a creative day!

Balloon Cards - Kaszazz


Today's share is some cards featuring balloons. All stamps and papers are from Kaszazz.
The balloons are created from glossy card, which has been coloured using shaving foam technique. They were then punched out, stamped with texture or word stamps then shaped. All card bases are white.

The flowers are from Springtime set, the sentiment from Watercolour wreath is embossed in gold, and both were stamped before the white panel was embossed in dots. The 50 is die cut from gold card and is coated with glossy accents. Twine is tied to the balloons and they are fixed to the card with magic mount. Sequins and rhinestones finish off.

The Car is stamped and embossed in black and fussy cut. Embossing folder is roses.
The balloons were edged with stickles and coated with glossy accents. Swirl ribbon, a bow and some brads finish this card.

The elephant is from Adorable friends, coloured with watercolour pencils, cut out and coated with glossy accents. The paper is from Funky forest collection and is embossed in butterflies folder. Ribbon, brads, a small gem for the elephant's eye, and a die cut butterfly were added.


Tricycle has been stamped and fussy cut.
The 2 is die cut from gold card, and has been coated with glossy accents.
Washi tape, ribbon bow and brads finish this card.

Butterflies have been cut using Flutterby dies.
These are just a few ideas using balloons, and I hope you can find inspiration here to come up with many more of your own.  They can be used for so many occasions.

Keep happy
Till next time
