9 x9 Accordion Album for Karrie

Last May my very good friend Karrie got married. It was a beautiful ceremony not only did she marry her True Love Kevin but together they with their three beautiful daughters became one wonderful family. As I think back on my own Wedding Day, it takes forever to plan and seems like minutes to celebrate. The hold day usually goes by way too fast . We took lots of photos that day with this showcase album in mind. Karrie was extremely surprised and grateful for this keepsake. I had a great time making it. This is one of the many reasons why I LOVE Scrapbooking.

My Creations Memory Showcase 9x9 accordion album

Envelope Purse ~ Let's Get Together

I've been working on this Envelope Purse for my last Hostess Club workshop. This project will complete my 10 month run with these wonderful ladies. They are always ready to create new things and are extremely great crafters.

After seeing the new Autumn/Winter CTMH catalogue I had to make this project with the new "Perfect Day" papers. Like most papers it's even better when you see it.... With my busy schedule which included; back to school and dance I had no choice but to start creating this project without my new stash :-(

So I made my Envelope Purse with my thyme paper "Let's Get Together". Thyme paper you say: Yes, last year I used this paper and painted my small Scrapbooking room. The Cranberry, Buttercup and Garden Green makes a wonderful colour combination in my cozy room.

If I'm lucky one of my HC ladies will let me post to final creation with the Perfect Day papers.

Supplies used for this project:
Cardstock: Cranberry, Buttercup & garden Green
Papers: Let's Get Together
Stamp set: treasure Life & Annotations

Calendar Page ~ September 08

WOW!!!! September already? Where did the summer go, what summer! Well it's back to school, back to dance and celebrating my little one's Birthday. My baby just started school this year and she's doing great, yet another Milestone in the Carriere household. When people ask me: "Why to you Scrapbook"? The answer is right there...

Only a few pages left in my calendar. I plan to transfer these calendar pages into our Family Scrapbook. I'll be using the Reflections Scrapbook Program book to find companion layout to complete monthly double pages from last year's photos.
