CD Case Calendar/Photo Frame

I think I have found a new favorite project! This would make a great gift for any occasion. This is the project I will be doing with my monthly scrapbook club this week. All you need is a new or used CD case (a thicker case, not thinline), some paper, and a few photos. When the case is open on a desk, it is a calendar for the user, and a photo display for the rest of the world. The pictures are from my sister and niece's trip to the shore this summer.

Envelope Purse

A few months ago I saw this idea while looking for projects on the web. The original project can be found by clicking this link to Stamp Paper Scissors. I adapted the project to fit my own ideas and to accommodate stationary sized envelopes. I love this idea and have been meaning to try it for quite sometime. I finally got around to creating this envelope purse with pictures of my niece. The left and right side of the open purse are stationary size envelopes that have been covered with paper. The project is a lot of fun and it's nice that the envelopes contain areas for hidden pictures or journaling.

Name Frame I know that my posts have been non-existent for a while. Part of this is the fact that I have just been so busy. I have been making projects and taking pictures but haven't gotten around to posting. It has been tough to adjust to the idea of blogging. I promise to try harder from now on! As a way to make up for being missing for so long, I will be adding several posts today to share some of my recent creations.

This is a project that I made for my niece when she painted her bedroom. Her room is purple now and these papers matched perfectly. The letters were cut with my Cricut and then covered with colored glitter. I just love the Martha Stewart brand glitter. The colors are so vibrant! The project was framed in an 11 x 14 cherry picture frame, but I forgot to take a picture after it was framed.
