Rose Garden Stuffed Envelope

I spent 4th of July weekend much as I did 5 years ago, creating art and promoting my Anniversary Sale.

This collection of papers is called “Precious,” from Stamperia.  I love the high quality and the gorgeous designs of the papers that I use in my creations. Instead of making an album, I made this stuffed envelope with lots of mini journals and other elements. EnJoy the video here, as well!


Rose Garden Stuffed Envelope 7.75″ x 7″ $116.00


Bird Garden Magazine Journal

I got the idea to make a journal from a recycled magazine, thanks to Nicole of Relax, Cut, Glue. Thanks, Nicole!

I used a small magazine, removing many pages and gluing pairs of others together to make somewhat thicker pages, which I decorated with various papers. My inner perfectionist complained that the pages are not as smooth as she likes! And a friend suggested that the imperfections add texture and charm to the journal. EnJoy the video tour as well.

Bird Garden Magazine Journal 5.25″ x 8″ $53.00

Soft-cover Newspaper Journal

I just finished making this lovely journal, inspired by Pam of Paper Outpost. Thanks, Pam!

Enjoy the video tour here! This measures 6″ x 7.25″ and is about 1″ thick. $98.00




A Sweet Pocket

Here is a sweet little pocket I made from old book pages, with a variety of cards and tags for writing or drawing on. It’s a great place to write love notes or poems, too! EnJoy

Three Stash Buster Journals

I made these three little journals from stash scraps, newspaper, fabric and more. The Cats one is 4.5″ x 5-7/8″, $26.00. Soft cover journal with fabric is 5.75″ x 8.75″, $35.00. Subscription card journal is 4-1/8″ x 6-1/4″, $35.00. Enjoy the video tour!
