Photo Tin With Life Delights Paper Pack

Just put this custom order photo tin in the mail.  The customer requested that it contain pink and apple green and that the tin had a cross on the top.  She also wanted butterflies included on the pages.  I first started working with some non-CTMH patterned papers with those colors and ditched two attempts because they just looked like a 70's era VW bus to me.  So I started over using a CTMH paper pack that I really like.  I hope the customer does too.

It is basically a 5 x 7 tin with an accordian fold out inside.  Each side has 10 pages with spaces and mats for photos and journaling.

Animal Cookies Memory Keeper

Check out how colorful this keepsake box is that is made with Animal Cookies paper collection.  I actually made this one to sell at a recent craft show or on my ETSY site, but I don't think I can part with it - except to give it to my youngest grandson, Jacob, for his first birthday.  He will be one in July and his nursery is decorated in primary colors.  I'm thinking this just has to belong to Jake.




Topstitch Tag Album

This little scalloped edge chipboard album was in the dollar bin at the local hobby store.  I covered it in Topstitch papers and use the Togetherness, Simple Stitches, and other stamp sets.  I think it is kinda cute!







Father's Day Photo Tin

I'm in the process of trying to use up and sell off some of my stashed scrapbooking supplies.  I made this photo tin and album with a paper collection by My Minds Eye.  It is a 5 x 7 tin with a hinged lid that comes with a plain white cardstock accordian album.  Each side has 10 pages for decorating with scrapbook papers and embellishments.  Here's a few of the pages.
 
 
 





  

Acrylic Album with Silhouette

My friend Lynn (also the sweet, sweet mother of my daughter-in-law Amy) has created this lovely acrylic album using the Silhouette paper pack.  She is planning to give it as a 50th Wedding Anniversary gift.  Silhouette is one of my favorite paper collections.  I love how well it works for weddings, anniversaries, proms, heritage pictures, and makes gorgeous cards.  Thanks for sharing your beautiful artwork, Lynn.
