I'm back!

So I was a little busy while I was away and actually got five projects 'just' about done! Talk about talented huh?! Now let's just see if I can actually finish them! I really wanted to post the pictures of then cause knowing me the way I do...not sure how many will ever get totally done (but I promise to try)!

This first one is based on a kit from ScrapScription that I totally fell in love with (yah, I too love to search and shop the net)! So I took their project and (as Anita would say) wendy'ized it. Theirs was to be a weekly planner, I made mine into a simple mini album! No journaling on it (yet) but everyone know how I love the office look so Basic Grey's Basic White Collection was a perfect fit. Pockets and tags galore!

products used: 7 Gypsies Medium Portfolio, Gaffer Tape; Tim Holtz Ruler Ribbon, Alterations Tag & Bookplates Die, Distress Inks; Basic Grey Basic White Paper Collection, Basic White Tabs, Basic White Writer's Block, Basic White Die Cut Cardstock Pieces, Basic Kraft Mini Monogram Stickers, Basic Manilia Trim Stickers; Bazzill Cardstocks; Kraft Envelope and misc office closures. All supplies can be found on the site.

This next one is from a mini book kit from Pinecone Press that can be found at the store and I brought in especially for this paper pack - 7 Gypsies Lille. I used the 8x8 pack as it is LOADED with paper and I didn't even use the hole pack (I used more on the next project)!

products used: 7 Gypsies 8x8 Lille Paper Pack, Lille Tags, Lille Paper Dangles, Gaffer Tape, Elastics; Bazzill Cardstocks; We R Memory Keepers Eyelets; Tim Holtz Distress Inks & Hitch Fastener ; Jenny Bowlin Vintage Buttons. Still to come...fibres & ribbons.

This next one is yet another twist on the library drawer! I have no idea what I am going to do with this one...but the idea behind it is a yearly photo journal.

This is a chipboard backed calendar that I made and covered with more of that 7G's 8x8 Lille Paper Pack then I used a Tim Holtz Hitch Fastener as the 'hook' to hold the calendar up. I created the calendar grid in word and printed two on the Ranger Manila Cardstock (6) to make the 12 months. The months are abbreviated with Jillibean Soup Alphabean Cardstock Stickers. Now I just have to use my 7G's Year in the Life Stamp to add the days of the week. I plan on hand writing in the dates.

Now for the inserts I did several different things...I covered 12 5x6" chipboards with Lille papers on one side and a coordinating Bazzill cardstock on the other and topped them with ribbon (see first photo), included several sheets of coordinating cardstock cut to 4x6" so photos or journaling could be added for each month, 6 of these 7 Gypsies Photo Folders decorated them with paper, cardstock, tags and stickers &/or dangles.

Then I made two of the 7 Gypsies Small Portfolio covered once again in the Lille papers and also added some Tim (Ruler Ribbon, Tissue Tape and ink).

What you don't see is what is inside of the folder...a mini blank journal for personal notes (covered in more Lille paper)! All the products used in these projects can be purchased at the store....W2 Scrapbooking!

Another project I did was something I found on a blog just the day before I left called an Onion Envelope. I will post it later today or tomorrow along with where I found it!

Heading to the Dr's to see about this nasty cold I brought back with me!
