CD Photo Cube (Mini Album Holder)

This project was introduced to me by Lisa. I had a lot of fun with this one....until it was time to assemble the bottom base! It ripped on if you decide to make one I would score the base cardstock a little bit bigger then the 7 and 7 1/2 inch mentioned on the video. (Just my opinion) Here is the link to the tutorial so you can try it yourself! Have fun!!

Here are the sample cards I made tonight. These are just samples to show the group. The group name is Creative ATC Club. Again you would do a group search at

to join the club.

Tag Album

I made this Tag Album after we celebrated my sons' 10th birthday. This was my first Tag Album.

2009 Pocket Calendar

This was a challenge I did in my group. It's made from a checkbook size calendar. I covered it with designer paper and stamped a bella image, added some ribbon and a brad. Very easy to make.

Card Holder

I made this card set and holder earlier this summer. It was inspired by this video Enjoy!

Mini Backpack

I made this backpack about 2 months ago. It was lots of fun. I embossed the design paper to give it a plastic look. It came out better then I expected.

Stationary Box

This last summer attended a Stampin' up class and made this Stationary Box with 4 cards, 4 mini cards, 4 gift tags, an address booklet, and stamp holder. I love it!! I have made 4 more since the day I attended the class. Very cute gift!

ATC Trading Club friend Lisa and I are constantly looking for new projects and challenges. We are always collaborating with new ideas and new fun projects. I found a fun club called ATC (Artist Trading Card) so we have decide to start our own group. If you would like to take part in this club you MUST be a cafemom user. Here is the link I will update with the group name and a link to the group. I will also be posting pictures of the cards I have received each month.

Altered Christmas Journal

This is made from a compostion notebook. I covered and added embellishments. Did some layering and added some ribbon and buttons.

Chocolate Packet Gifts

I worked on this yesterday. They have a chocolate mix and a small bag of marshmallows inside. You cut a 8 1/2 x 5 piece of cardstock and fold over packet. Here is the video that this project was inspired by fun!!
