A 5×5 Art Journal by my sister…

By | Gift Ideas, Scrapbooking | No Comments

I wanted to share this cute mini album that my sister, Mary Wick, made for her friend’s birthday.  Mary is a freshman in high school and does a lot of scrapbooking.  She loves to use stickers and Stampin’ Up!’s Simply Scrappin’ Kits. May is National Scrapbook Month, but that doesn’t mean that you have to do a fancy 12×12 album.  Scrapbooks come in all shapes and sizes, so pick the one that is right for you.  This mini album is made from Stampin’ Up!’s 5″x5″ Art Journal.

Coaster Calendars

By | 3-D Items, Gift Ideas | No Comments

Many of you have asked where I got the supplies to make these cute Coaster Calendars and how they were made. I ordered the pre-made calendars and the 4″ square coasters from www.stamponthis.com. Their customer service is amazing!  They emailed me shortly after I placed my order to tell me that they were lowering my shipping rate because they could fit my order into a flat rate envelope.  Who does that?!?  I’ll definitely be ordering from them again. On most of the calendars I made, I cut a 4″ square of Designer Series Paper, rounded the corners and used a…
