Paper Bag Mini-Album

I used the large size basic paper lunch bags from Walmart to make the album. I glue the bottoms of the bag together to get a little "mini" page in between each bag. I made this to give to my mom for her birthday. She had two grandsons, my son & my nephew, and is always taking lots of pictures of them. With summer just around the corner, I used paper that represents things the boys do while at my parents house. The paper I used was from DCWV "The Guy Stack" and " The Generations Tech Stack". Each paper bag page has a pullout to journal or add pictures to. I hope my mom has lots of fun filling this album with pictures of her grandsons.

Ball Canning Jar With Charms

I found this idea while searching the internet for craft ideas. I took a small Ball glass canning jar, tied a ribbon on the top from Michaels. I then added a length of base metal chain just a little larger than the diameter of the jar. I made the charms hanging from misc. beads I already had, most are from Hobby Lobby. I will then fill the glass jar with the Renuzit scented stones in a vanilla scent. This was a quick and very easy project that was made from things I already had in my craft room.

"I Love Lucy" Birthday Card

This card is A2, I used Nifty 50's Cricut Cartridge to make the TV and George to cut the heart. This is for my mom's birthday, she is a big I Love Lucy fan. When I thought of this idea, I wanted to make it look like the intro to the show was playing on the old TV.
