A Pocket full of Memories blog hop...

Thanks for visiting and hopping along the pocket full of memories blog hop... Be sure to start at the beginning and leave a comment on each blog for a chance to win an amazing prize by several different sponsors.

I have been working on a mini album for a couple weeks.  It has been a long time since I created one and I have to say I really missed it.. I use to teach a mini album very close to this using envelopes and cards several years ago and a friend of mine directed me to Kathy Orta's YouTube channel saying her album reminded her of mine years ago... Pretty close but I love her Library pocket page better.  I also loved how she bound the album as years ago all we really had was rings, ribbon and eyelets... but who would of thought of duck tape...  I chose to do mine with tyvek and ink it as I wanted an older look to my binding.  I love the whole idea of tyvek and glad that Kathy Orta pointed me in it's direction...  If you like this album Kathy Orta has really broke the steps down and shared this mini album in a series of 4 videos. Awesome videos...

Here is my album titled Dream... I still need to fill it with photos, journaling and more tags...

KinderStampO Design Team

A few days ago I found out that I made the KinderStampO design team.  I simply adore all of Jessica's stamps and have been using them on my cards and in my classes for several months now and when I found out she was having a design team call I was super excited and just had to submit.

Here is a card that I created using the KinderStampO Vintage Birthday Stamp Set.

Become a follower of KinderStampO and leave a comment there and here too for a chance to win a prize. 

KinderStampO's motto is Live Craft Inspire so we were asked to write a little something about us that relates to each word in the motto..

Originally from Illinois, but currently living in the Pacific Northwest with my amazing husband, 4 children, 2 fur babies Lola and Fiona and a fish named Joc. You can say there is never a dull moment in our home. When the kids are at school or busy with friends etc you can find me in my craft room creating.  When I'm not being crafty I love to read, write, draw, listen to music and cook. 

I have been scrapbooking for over 19 years now. It all started with a way of keeping our family up to date on how the kids were growing and reaching there milestones, goals etc.  As well as sending hubby mini albums of home while he was on deployment.  I love scrapping the everyday moments the most with a few holidays thrown in.  3 years ago I really got into card making and just love it. Before that I couldn't make a card to save my life.  My style is a Hodge-Podge of Vintage, Shabby Chic to Modern and Clean.

I am inspired by Color, Vintage Images, Art, Music and others whom love to scrapbook and create.  I love being around creative people and enjoy sharing my projects and ideas with others.  I enjoy teaching classes and being involved creatively in my community.

Now don't forget to hop onto Ashley's blog from here...

Thanks for visiting and I will be back tomorrow with another project... Till then.. Happy Crafting.
