Yeah, my blog break lasted all of less than one day, huh?  Seriously, I’ll be on a blog break for two weeks after today. =)  I wanted to make one last project for my sister-in-law before we board the plane to see my family tomorrow.  I learned an origami-like frame folding technique in the wee hours of this morning and was so antsy to try it out.  Not bad for having figured it out from a few pictures online!  This is the new Early Bird line–nice, bright colors!

~ Mini Minibook, More Surgery News and Twilight

This little book is probably the littlest one I’ve ever made.  It measures about 3 1/2″ square.  I might actually make more of these to give to my hubby’s family members at a family reunion next month.  Clear Scraps has the cutest little kits now with chipboard and acrylic pieces.  I sandwiched the tabbed chipboard pieces with matching acrylic covers.  I printed the photos in wallet size and trimmed them just a bit.

Just another week ’til the Twilight DVD comes out!  AAAAAAHHHH!  I’m so excited I can’t stand it.  Even my 10 year old son is looking forward to the Hot Topic DVD release party next Friday.  (So excited!)

Alrighty, for the more unsavory news–I need to have my gallbladder taken out.  I didn’t realize the various pains I had been experiencing for months now were all related to gallstones in my gallbladder.  Geez.  Anyway, I’ll post something again about it after I meet with the surgeon next week.

One last thing!  If you’d like to join my class on the All Moments Remembered member board, please sign-up before March 30.  If you are unable to make it, just drop me a line and I’ll send you the PDF file with full directions, supply and tool list.  Send your email to leasanders@yahoo.com with the subject line “Living Simply PDF”.

Stuff:  Zutter – o-wire; Clear Scraps – chipboard and acrylic pieces; My Mind’s Eye – patterned paper collection, cardstock shapes; Lil’ Davis Designs – stickers; K & Company – clear sticker, rub-on; Cloud9 – Rain Dots; Stampin’ Up! – rub-on; Making Memories – acrylic paint; ribbon 

~ The trio is complete – K&Co Halloween Minibook #3

 

Sorry about the poor lighting.  I took these pictures when I got home from work today–Lots of shadows from the tall trees in my backyard.  So, here it is–the third and last book of the trio that I set out to make this week with the Jen Yanok K & Company Halloween collection.  It was fun!  I love all of the paper and embellishments.

{Click on the thumbnails for a closer look.}

This book makes use of different patterned papers (from books 1 and 2) througout and a lot of rub-ons in the background of the cover.  I really like the effect the rub-ons had, almost as if the scene with the tree against the moon was really farther back in the cover of the book.

Here are all of the books together. =)  I highly recommend trying the Bind-it-All (if you haven’t already).  It really expands the options for making minibooks.  I really do not know how I managed without it!  Leave me a comment and let me know which of these books is your favorite. =)  

Stuff:  black chipboard – unknown brand; paper collection, paper embellishments, stickers, rub-ons – K & Company; acrylic – AccuCut; extra large eyelets and large eyelets – We R Memory Keepers; ribbon – Stampin’ Up, eFavor, American Crafts and Lil’ Davis Designs; black o-ring – Zutter/Bind-it-All

P.S. – Thanks friends for your prayers and positive thoughts so far for my brother. 

P.S.S. Prayers for my youngest brother, Jimmy.  He is at UCLA Medical Center this week for thyroid cancer surgery. 

~ K&Co Halloween Minibook #2 and cake!

Here is book #2 in my series of 3.  This one is a little different inside — a couple of different patterned papers and large pockets for 5″x5″ tags (instead of the mostly clear acrylic pages I made in the first book).  There are also two of the other tags in this project where I had six in the previous.  The acrylic tags inside the pockets are decorated with rub-ons at the bottoms of each.

Doesn’t this look like the biggest chocolate donut you’ve ever seen?  Hee hee–it isn’t a donut.  I found a little time this morning to bake a bundt cake, all chocolate with cute sprinkles.  Love all of the colors of these sprinkles and the cake tasted great, too! =)
