Past Christmas Mini Album, St. Nicholas, By Magda Cortez, Product By Graphic 45, Photo 01 of 14, Project with Tutorial

"Christmas is coming and this time I want my gifts all hand made!!!.. And this is one I’m going to give to my sister and it is a beautiful Mini Album from the Past Christmas I’m using the Mixed Media Mini Album it is so easy! Some times we don’t have time to build the structure of the albums because we don’t have time.. because we want perfection .. because we don’t know if we want to add more pictures later or just because we love more decorate than make album structures.. so if you say YES to one of those because.. This is the perfect Mini Album for you! JUST DECORATE!

I have a tutorial how I did the cover.. I don’t have tutorial for the pages because I feel you can add your own style depending of the pictures you are going to use.. Anyways in the YouTube video you are going to see all the pages for your inspiration.. I hope you like it same as I like and I hope my sister like too!!!

Happy Holidays * Merry Christmas"

Kathy now wows us with a Special Event calendar for the New Year! What a gorgeous, functional idea for years to come!

 

Birthdays, Holdiays and Special Days 2017 Card Planner, Place in Time, Time to Flourish, Time to Celebrate, by Kathy Clement, Product by Graphic 45, Photo 12

"This is the time of year when we are all thinking of getting our homes and our lives organized in preparation for the New Year.  While I was reorganizing my G45 papers, I found myself wanting to use up all the beautiful “bits and pieces” that had accumulated over time.  What if I could use them to make a whole year’s worth of cards? 

Suddenly, I was struck with the idea to create this Birthdays, Holidays & Special Days planner so that I would always have a handmade card ready for any occasion in the coming year.  I designed the album with 24 pocket pages: two for each month.  One pocket will hold lists of birthdays, anniversaries and other special events along with important addresses.  The other pocket holds the cards.  I’m hoping that with this planner by my side, I’ll never be late with my good wishes again. As an added bonus, I used up loads of lovely scraps and now I have room for more papers!" ~Kathy
