Alice in Wonderland Mini Album

Alice in Wonderland Mini Album A very Happy UnBirthday to youuuuuuu Helloooooo my lovelies.  Please be gentle on me with this one as this is my very first proper mini album.  And I LOVE it but thats just me, lol.  I was surfing the web and having a nosey around Youtube trying to find some ideas for a pressie I could make for my bestie, Maddy ( ) as I wanted to make something really special for her birthday.  I am a subbie of Marion Smith on Youtube and remembered she made her own printables.  Click HERE for her Youtube channel.  As it was my first one, I felt a little intimidated by it so I kept pretty much similar to her design but with a few Loops's twists added in for good measure.  If you have never visited Marion's website or had a play with any of her designs, (link no longer availble) to go straight to her website.  The printables are delicious and I have bought another few to have a go at those too.

Craft Organiser - How to make an album or folder

Craft Organiser - How to make an album or folder Hi everyone.  Ok so I was using a wee book that I made......way back when I started crafting to keep as a wee Craft Organiser.  You know, with Crafty Buds names and addresses, Swaps I did, or needed to do, Blog Candies I won, or held, Inventory of Craft goodies like which Distress Inks I had etc and where I buy my stuff from.

I wanted to get the binders that Tim Holtz was selling.  But to be honest, I was not willing to spend £4 for two wee binder do-daa's.  So Little Miss Tight A**e here went on to the old World Wide Web to see if I could maybe buy 10 or 20 from some sort of stationery supplier.  Now if you have ever tried to find these things

My very first mini album...well....not so mini 25th Wedding Anniversay Pressie

My very first mini album...well....not so mini 25th Wedding Anniversay Pressie From these..... To this.. This is my very first album so please be gentle!!  It is my Uncle and Aunts 25th wedding anniversary today and all those years ago I was their 6 year old flower girl and having seen the photos last night, I havent changed a bit!!  They had a big party last night to celebrate in their massive barn at their beautiful house in Wicklow.  They didn't want gifts but there was no way I could turn up empty handed.  They love taking photos so I thought I could making a journalling photo album so they could have a memory album of their anniversary.   I wanted to keep this quite plain and not too bulky an album as I wanted it to be a "working" album as such.  I think sometimes its very easy to get carried away and add too much embellishments to an album which makes it difficult to then use even though they are beautiful pieces of artwork.  But as it was my Uncle
