Colorbok Heaven

Hi Everybody,

Have any of you taken a trip to you local Walmart and browsed by the Scrapbook section?  Well If you have then you would have noticed the new additions to the the Colorbok paper line!!  Some great new things are happening and I am in Colorbok Heaven!!

Some of you may know that I am a true fan of their from way back.  And on every trip to Walmart I always stroll through and see what new products have been added.  Well imagine my delight when on my last trip I noticed new paper lines. That alone made me super happy, but I was overjoyed when I saw that 8x8, 6x6 and 4.5x7.5 pads had also been added!!!  Yaaaaaaay!!!!  I was so floored that I had to record my visit and share it with you.

Thank you all so much for sharing time with me I sooo appreciate but go to your local Walmart and check out the new lines!!  :D  Their prices are so amazingly reasonable that you will probably want to pick up everything you see (I can't blame you).

I would love to hear what you think so please leave a comment and share your thoughts!

Later Ya'll

Envelope Mini Album - Mini Album Monday #2

Hi Everybody,

I finished one the four Minis I have been working on simultaneously.  This is the second Mini for the Mini Album Monday that I am excited to show you.

You know it doesn't take a lot of money to make beautiful, simple, interactive albums to show off your memories.  All I used were some 6x9 envelopes (the cheap ones) from Staples and some $1/$1.50 paper and flowers from Michaels.  Lace was either given to me or found at the thrift store for pennies. All in all, with the embellies, paper, and envies I probably spent $15.  And with that money I can make 3 of these minis.  LOVE IT!!!  A great way to stretch a buck!

Okay, now here is where I inform you, WARNING - a boatload of pics are about to be seen.

And there you have it.  Super sweet, super simple, and super quick. All the die cut pieces I fussy cutted from the paper collection and pasted them to card stock.  And each page has photo corners to hold all the pic so should i give this away, the recipient can easily slip their photos in without having to purchase adhesive.

I  Thank you all for stopping by I appreciate you all SOOOO MUCH!!

I have a feeling a few giveaways may be coming up so BOLO.  Oh, and stay tuned for the the Next Mini Album Monday!

Until Later..
