I wanted to share my most recent Mini Album project.  I love making these Paper Bag Mini Albums from Ginger's instructions from My Sister's Scrapper.   I was asked to make a Wedding Album and it was a challenge since I haven't made one before!  I loved using the romantic paper to create this album!  Check out my video to get a better look!

Wedding Flying Easel Card

 I love this die from Cheery Lynn Designs!  I use it for Weddings and Anniversaries!  My sister and her husband are celebrating their 8th Anniversary today!  This card is a perfect card to say, "Congratulations"!    The Flying Easel card is easy to make!  I was inspired by Karen Burniston's Halloween card that I saw on Pinterest. I cut a square out just big enough to let this die fit into-You use 2 dies for the back and one for the front.  It was a little challenging to glue the outside of the dies  together.  On the inside of the die, I only glued the heads of the Bride and Groom together.   The bow is made from a MFT ribbon die.  The "Congrats" die is from Spellbinders.  I also added a little gem covered  tulle-like fabric to the bride's dress.  See below for more pictures....

 I used a different decorative paper on the back of the card.   I also added a little bling to the die cut along with some pearls.

Flying Easel Card

Our daughter, Emily, has a birthday coming up soon!  I have been working on her card and was inspired by the Flying Easel Cards I have seen on Pinterest.  I love how you can hang something from the inside of any die that you use on the Easel Card.  I hung a Rosette from this one.  It can fold up and be mailed in an envelope, too!    I think this will be the first of a few of these type cards that I will make!  Hope Emily will like it!

I have been busy, busy working on a commissioned Wedding Vertical Paper Bag album! I will share some pictures when it is completed!   But our Grandson's birthday is this weekend so I had to make a birthday card to celebrate his special day.  We are headed to the island to help him celebrate!  We went to the Despicable Me 2 movie this summer and I heard him laugh out load during the movie, so I know he loved it!  This is another Tri-fold card that is so easy to make!  I used a bunch of dies to make the little minions.  The sentiment makes me laugh but he really is "One in a Minion"!

 I hadn't shared any pictures of my porch this summer, at least I don't think I have...Since September is here and fall is just around the corner- I thought I would show you our porch!  I bought some tea cups at the flea market this summer and planted a few succulents in them.   The hat was my Mother-law's hat.  I love seeing it hanging there- it reminds me of her when ever I pass by it.  My Dad made the wooden tool box.  He died a few years ago and it too reminds me of him.  Loving memories of both my Dad and Queenie.

I put out the rug and chairs every year but this year we really seemed to use the chairs more often.  We sat out many nights and watched the moon.  I love rocking in them during the day in the warm sun.  It really is a wonderful porch!

I love the baby carriage in the picture above too! This year the flowers I planted did really well.  You never know how the plants will do since this porch doesn't get sun all day.  The plants below are in the corner and don't get much sun at all.  I think they are called New Guinea Impatiens.   We had lots of flowers this summer on these plants.  They seem to know fall is coming and have stopped blooming so much.  The pump at the top was from a flea market too!  Speaking of flea markets- I am headed today with my sisters to Brimfield!!!  I can't wait!  I will post a few pictures of our adventure at the biggest flea market of all!! Hope you all have a fabulous day!!
