Card Ministry

Check out my card ministry box. I  purchased this at Recollections sorry to say the store closed. This store was the best . I covered the outside using the Once upon a time paper collection.



Covering around the box.


The box came with file dividers. Next covering the dividers with the theme. 


This part was pretty easy . The selection of paper to choose from was great.


I added trim around the  edge to draw the eye and make it easy to find the different dividers.


After I covered the box and dividers, I wanted to do some embellishing.So I experimented with  the foil sheet
again. The foil sheets cut  great with the paper cutter .


 Here I am using my new punch ( one of Martha Stewart's) . She does have great tools.


Adhering the foil to corners. The foil forms good . I can't wait to try on other projects.I really lik the way it looks on the box.


The inside looks great with the dividers.


The finished product. I really like the color scheme.


Far, Far Away


Well, My box is for ready for me to start my card ministry. Now to design and create cards  to keep on hand and ready to send . What do you think about this project?

Create something,

Spring House

School is out for the summer and I am on  to the blogging world. This is my Spring House . 
I purchased this house with accordion book pull out to embellish on a day trip with my scrapbook buddies in Waxahachie ,Tx. at the Crafty Scrapper. One of my favorite places. The house came with the shudders,windows and door . You can purchase this kit from Mayaroad.com. They have great products.


In covering the house I used Gabi's Garden from the Paper Studio. Paints from Americana,Patio paints and M Scrapbook Colors. Foil pages and flowers to embellish.



This is my first time to work with foil pages. I found they work great. It if gets to crinkled you can just use a rolling pin to roll out the crinkles/wrinkles. I used my paper cutter to cut the size that was needed and a punch to create the design . Oh! I use tacky glue the clear kind to adhere the foil pieces to roof and corners. Great glue.Stamped Dream on the door  and Wala . The accordion book is a great way to share photos ,special receipes , words of wisdom or whatever your heart desires.

I hope you enjoy this post as much as I did making this house. Please check  back or better yet follow me.
