Baby Album

This is the album I made for my first grandbaby:
The album pages are made of 8 by 8 chip board. I used DCWV
The Green Stack she wanted foxes and owl's and non traditional colors for a baby
so it has taken me a while to do it.


This is just the first 4 months, I bought the 8 by 8 stack
 and the 12 by 12 so I have enough paper to do her first year with it.
As you can see I hope their are lots of pockets and journaling place.
Her mom also has wrote her a letter telling about her beginning.

May Linky Party At Crafty Secrets

I had so much fun doing the April party, thought I would go again this month.
One of the things I picked for my $6 gift for doing the Linky Party
was 2 pages of vintage button cards.
They fit right in with my DCWV  The Heirloom Stack of paper.

This is called a Z-Fold card I found the directions on One of my favorite  Blogs,
Here is the link
You can enter their  Linky Party and post any sample you have created using any Crafty Secrets product(s) and receive a $6.00 coupon. You can enter up to 4 samples to increase your chance to win the $50 gift card but only one $6.00 coupon can be sent.  Don't be shy, it's fun, you just have to add a link to a blog, gallery, somewhere we it can be seen larger and it would be great if you say what you used.

                      Christmas Cards 2014

                      I found this and it was right up my alley, as I was behind a few cards and gift card holders this year. 
                       DigiStamps4Joy has decided, seeing that its a New Year, its time for something new here at DS4J.
                      We all know the Christmas rush at the end of each year to get those Christmas cards/tags made for family and friends, so this is now your chance to create those cards/tags on a monthly basis, and what makes it even more exciting is that we here at DS4J will take the thinking out of it when it gets to choosing images. We will offer a free DS4J Christmas image each month with which you can create a card or tag.   

                      My paper for this card came from the Christmas Mat Stack from DCWV the gold trim was a gift in a swap.    The candle is the DS4J Christmas Stamp can hardly wait to se what next months is.
