It's our big party day here at the Overby's household. We are having an open house and everyone is invited. Come on' over!! LOL!
I'm also excited today to share with you a project I have made for Fiskars. I'm so completely honored to be a Guest Designer for Fiskars this month.
As as I was getting ready for company, I decided that my book shelf was in need of a good dusting. I found a few half full flip photo albums; you know, the 4x6 size that are so easy to just throw your pictures into when you first get them. I had fun smiling at some of the photos from 9 or 10 years ago. Even though there were no embellies or journaling, I still enjoyed flipping through it real quick.
It suddenly became apparent to me how much more fun it can be to sit down and flip through a mini album rather than a great big, huge 12x12 album. I've always loved adding so much stuff to my page that I tend to stick to large layouts. Maybe that is overwhelming for a little kid. I'll have to ask Kelsey when she wakes up tomorrow what size she prefers! Regardless, I think there will be more mini albums in my future. They are just simply starting to make more sense to me.
This was a fun little star album and it captured lots of different memories of a Christmas from a few years ago.
Did you know that Fiskars makes adhesive foam dots? I was just thinking today as I was getting my card ready to send off, that the last three cards that I have had published all had the 'pop dots' or 'foam dots' on them. Seems to be a current trend! I'll never forget the day that the Fiskateer Legendary Lead May Flaum, said that I had won some Fiskars adhesive and in that package included foam dots. I have loved using them ever since. This is a small RAK but they have taken me a long way so I want to offer someone else the same chance to have fun with them. I have a brand new pack of Fiskars foam dots that I will send out to a random poster. I'll announce the winner on Christmas day. Maybe I'll throw in a few other things from my stash!
I really wanted to share one other card that I recently created. It also uses the foam dots. I've also used one of my most favorite Christmas lines of all right now; Tinsel Town by Pink Paislee. It is sooooooo purty!! I abosolutely love that it can make any Christmas project perfectly gorgeous but it's also a line that you could use for any season or occasion. Mine is a simple thank you card. So, so fun. Pink and green...total faves!
Thanks for taking a peek during this very busy season.
