mini album project

I am working on a kathy orta inspired mini album. It's wedding themed and I'm using DCWV paper. I am drawing a blank on the name of the stack. I used the duck tape for the binding and a cool clasp. I will do a video when I'm done. I can't wait to show you all the finished project. It's a gift for my cousin who is getting married in September. Just wanted u all to know what i've been working on.

Tuesday, July 12, 2011 order

A month ago I ordered some stuff from 12" embossing borders and quilling kits for cuttlebug. I finally decided to try the quilling kit the other day for a project. I didn't realize that I needed a 12" c plate for them I only have A and B plates. So off I went to the three area craft stores for the long C plate. None of the stores carry the long plates. I went to and used my coupon there. I ordered the 13" c plate for the cuttlebug. While I was on the site I checked out the sale items. There were copic markers for $3 and since I don't have any and i totally love markers and the copics are totally popular I ordered 8 different colors. I just chose 4 colors I like and then I chose a color close to each of the four for shadowing technique. I can't wait for my order to come in about a week. I would like to do a video on the quilling kit. I am babysitting 3 kids this summer and I am having them decorate tshirts. I had them go through my cricut books and pick out a few images each of what they want on their shirts. Tonight I cut out the images in adhesive vinyl. I will also make a video of the kids painting their shirts and I will show what they look like after. I made two shirts a month ago and they came out beautiful so these should be pretty easy to do--although I will be letting the older kids paint their own shirts hopefully it will go smoothly.

My grandson has come home from the hospital after being in the NICU for a month after he was born. He has lung issues and that caused him to no eat. He is strong and healthy now he just needed a little help to get him started. I havent seen him since he was two days old and I can't wait to see him. I will post a pic of him when I get one.

I hope all of my followers and their loved ones are having a fun summer and are in good health!
