While I was shopping last week at Michaels, I came across some blank accordion albums. Never made one before so I thought I'd give it a try, I had so much fun with it, I actually made two. The first one is titled --'tis the season, it's made with Cosmo Cricket papers, and the second one is titled -- Merry Christmas, and that one is made with Making Memories papers. I thought both of them turned out really nicely.
I'm currently working with another accordion album with tear bears, very kid friendly. I hope to get it done tonight.

I love sending cards during the holidays, but I usually go out to the store and buy them, but I'm going to save some money this year and make my own cards. I don't know how many people appreciate homemade stuff, but I'm going to send my friends and family my cards, whether they like my stuff or not. lol
I came up with 3 sets of cards for the challenge, I wish I had time to make more, but I always run out of time.
Christmas Ornaments -- I used K&Co.'s Evergreen line papers, pearl stickers, ribbons, QK die cuts, and acrylic stamp.
Jolly Set -- I used K&Co.'s Evergreen papers, ribbons, chip boards, tags, pearl stickers, and flowers.
Let it Snow -- I think this is my favorite card out of the bunch.
Joy & Cheer Set -- I used the same materials as the Jolly Set
I hope you enjoy them, if you want to see more, please come visit my ebay listings.

I got the paper pad, some stickers, a box of chipboards, and embellishments and a few spools of ribbons.
I also got these gift boxes and tags, and I plan to fill them up with peppermints and other holiday goodies.
I was so excited to see these MME papers, I couldn't get a hold of them last year and when I saw them, it's a must have for me. they are such fun papers, they are others great MME papers, but I run out of coupons. hehe
MME calendar kit! How cool is that? I'm be making one for my design group -- PFOP's Home for the Holiday challenge. I know it's a kit, but I'm going to change it a bit. That's not cheating right, it's still handmade by me. lol
The butterflies on the front of the album are cut from Quickutz dies, aren't they just pretty? I'm a QK addict.
A sideview of the album, this album is filled with Prima flowers, ribbons, and other embellishments.
This album is made with a combination of chipboard and acrylic sheets.
I love to layer ribbons, and flowers.
I hope you enjoyed looking at these pages, more to come soon.

I'm like all girls and I like to shop and I like to shop for sccrapbooking supplies very much! hehe. Well, I went to Hobby Lobby to pick up some supplies since they are having a 50% off on most items. You won't believe how much I paid for the supplies in the photo, $44.01!! I can't believe it myself when they cashier told me the price, so I asked her are you sure? and she said with some attitude: YES I'M SURE! No point in arguing with her there and I'm very happy with my purchase! I got the following for $44.01! WOOT!
- MME Penny Lane paper collection
- 2 packs of Basic Grey papers -- Lemonade and Porcelain
- 5 packs of Bazzill flowers
- 2 Quikutz Magnet boards
- 3 packages of Spare Parts loops
- 1 large bottle of white Prima flowers
- 6 sheets of BG papers and 2 sheets of Ki Memories die cuts papers

If you haven't tried the UHU glue roller, you should. They have permanent and non-permanent ones. It has micro-dot glue pattern, which gives a clean break without the stringing effect, and it dries quickly. I often use it on those mini Quickutz die-cuts.
I think they sell it at Michael's for $6.99 (find a coupon), but you can do a search online and get it cheaper. I just bought a bunch (11 of them) for $29.00, that's with S&H on ebay. Give it a try.
This Grandchildren album was a suggestion by one of my previous buyer. She wanted an album to put photos of her many grand kids. I'm not sure if she likes the final result, but I hope so. I used K&Company papers this time, I love most of their paper lines, so pretty.
- K&Co. Sparkly Sweet line of papers
- DCWV & Bazzill cardstocks
- Tear Bears
- Quickutz die cuts
- Butterfly punches
- Prima, Mulberry, & Bazzill flowers
- and various stickers
