Hello Dear Friends, 

I am soooo excited to share with you a fun new event to my YouTube channel!! I have loved Creative Memories for many many years!! I loved when I was a consultant many years ago and I am thrilled to be apart of them again!! 

Having a Grandmother with dementia and a Mom who recently passed with Alzheimer’s, memory keeping is invaluable!!! I loved working on albums for my family!! I loved making albums for my Grandmother and Mom. When they were confused, I would show them pictures and walk them through time by looking at their memory books. The nurses and doctors always thanked me. They knew that love and sharing memories was so much better than medications. And I must tell you though it didn’t heal their struggles, they both knew they were loved and they always could find a part of their history to bring them back to the present…as much as they were able. For my Grandmother it was always successful…for my Mom, I was so blessed that she found comfort and could always find something in her albums to remember. 

Now they are both gone, and though I miss them both, I now am the caretaker of those precious albums and those incredible memories. It was a blessing then…and it is a blessing now. 

Being a story teller is the greatest gift we can give to our families…I know this with all my heart. I know I have allot to be thankful for, and this part of my journey is a blessing from the Lord. And now it is my job, to pass on the stories to my children…and one day my grandchildren. And I will be thankful to have these family history books ready to share. 

So come join with me and let’s build our family story journals together!! 

Prayers and hugs…k 🙂

Hello Dear Friends,

I have been traveling with my husband for his work. But there is always time for a project or two!! I literally took one whole suitcase of projects to work on. I am always more ambitious than time allows!! 😉

Here’s a quick peak at my drafting table ready to get started….

OK, yes…I am a two fist-ed tea and coffee drinker!! 😉 Gotta have my beverages!!! I LOVE a hot cup of coffee and some iced green tea!! And I LOVE this little beach clip cup holder I found at Walmart. It is great to hold my tea on the side of my drafting table. It’s great…no water sweating on my work surface!! 🙂 And very, very affordable…thanks Walmart!! 😉

Here’s some fun File Folder Junk Journals that I will be listing in my Etsy shop, posting on my YouTube Channel and my Instagram later this week. Please be sure to drop back by and take a look see!! 😉

Many thanks to all the sweet ladies on YouTube and many blogs sharing their creations of Junk Journals that have helped me develop mine. 🙂 Such a wonderful online community of crafters!!

Here’s how I make these fun File Folder Junk Journals:

Each has 2-3 signatures, a clip and a band with decorating/journaling pages for each journal.

Here’s some of the process:

file folders selection 3 file folder junk journal waxed twine

First I select the materials I will use. File folders, waxed twine, pages for the signatures, beads, bands, etc.

Next I measure, check and recheck. Then score and attach the folds.

Next I measure and then punch my holes for the folder to hold my signatures. I LOVE this simple awl…it always does the trick on punching paper/cardstock, easy peasy.

I then begin to build the signatures with all kinds of fun finds!! This week I was gathering fun inserts from the Korean market!! And I always try to include a current calendar in each one. I LOVE the whimsy of junk journals!! 🙂

After I build 2-3 signatures for each journal, I then begin accessorizing! I also include a clear business card slot in each one. 🙂

Finally I add my add my band and beads. I love to add a trinket to the band to help close it. And I love the beads on the spine as well. The opportunities are endless with all the clips, markers, etc.!!

Now this fun File Folder Junk Journal is ready for it’s newest recording of the owner’s next FUN adventure!! 🙂

Project Life Is At Stampin’ Up!!

Project Life Is At Stampin’ Up!!

Hello Friends,

Stampin’ Up and Becky Higgins have joined together to bring Project Life to Stampin’ Up!! Woo Hoo!! I have recently gotten started in PL. I just love this easy peasy beautiful scrapbooking system!!! I taught scrapbooking for years and when I discovered this new style…well FUN!!!

I was purchasing at Hobby Lobby (a store I just love for their wonderful Christian stand!!) and I noticed everything was clearanced!! I ask the check out girl and she said they were discontinuing the line!! Well…I won’t lie…I LOVED the sale. I was truly heartbroken I couldn’t buy my Project Life at Hobby Lobby.

Now I spent quite allot of time checking into all the lines of this type of scrapbooking. And after a good deal of research…I really LOVE Becky Higgins line the best.  How wonderful she will partner with Stampin’ Up!!

Enjoy this introductory video and keep checking back in. The first release will come in May. Then the full line will come with the new catalog in June!! Woo Hoo!!!

Have a wonderful week…and happy papercrafting,
