Heritage Album

My second cousin got married on the 18 of July. This is the heritage album that I made her at my mom's request. Except for about 5 of the pages all were made in about a weeks time. I even stayed up the WHOLE night before the wedding to get everything done my mom wanted in the album. I work well under pressure lol and I slept the whole way down in the car. It was a beautiful wedding.On Facebook I posted detailed notes as to who everyone is and the papers used. My Aunt died in a tragic accident when her boys were young, this is her granddaughter that got married. Half way through making the album it dawned on me why this was so important to my mom, she was giving her great-niece the family history that her sister was not able to give. I have seen many of these pictures growing up but I never knew the stories behind them. I am so glad that I was able to do this with my mom and hear her tell the stories of her childhood growing up. I even learned this week that my mom's oldest sister's name is Nora!!! NEVER knew that! After my mom started bringing things over I realized it is my destiny to be a scrapper! Some of the "stuff" my mom had and some she got from her mother's house after she passed away! So I come from a long line of memorbilia keepers! In the album the only document that we had to send away for was the marriage certificate of my Aunt & Uncle!!!

Graduation Card

I am having fun with the WC & HK carts. This one is the "all tied up" card. I had to use CDS to "stretch" it to be tall enough, to fit lengthwise I had to set it at 2.5" but that was not tall enough for my card! Kitty is cut at 8". I used a glue dot on the inside by the ribbon to keep the ribbon with the card.

Birthday Card

I have three people who have birthday's on April 19. This is the card that I made for them.
The flowers are cut from G&BS then run thru the cuttlebug swiss folder. The "Happy" and "Birthday" brads I got from Oriental Trading Co. The date stamp is a CTMH stamp set that I got as a Christmas gift from Sue. The "stems" are sewn. The flower pot was hand cut.

Cards, Cards and More Cards.....

My 11 Year Old Niece goes away to sleep over camp every summer. She writes letters to everyone in the family during the time she is gone. She always looks forward to getting my letters to see the "neat" card that I have made just for her. I told my SIL that I would make her note cards this year to send back to family. I sat down one Saturday afternoon with some "Bitty Pads" of paper that I got in a SS swap that I never have used and my folder of old stickers and this is what I came up with. Over the next few days I kept making them as I was having fun. I have a nephew in boot camp and I am sending him some to send back to family members. In all I think I have made 60 so far.
