Custom Journal - Follow Your Heart

Another custom journal ordered as a Christmas gift.  Again, the cover and wire are by Zutter and the interior pages are plain printer paper.  All cover items, except for the flower are by My Little Yellow Bicycle and the flower is by American Crafts.

I really like how this one turned out, happy and cheerful!

Custom Journal - Life is Good

This is another journal from the custom order for 6 journals.  I, once again, used the Zutter Bind-It-All bracket cover in white with white binding wires.  The paper inside is plain printer paper cut to size.  Cover paper is Bo Bunny, "Life is Good" is from Me and My Big Ideas, I think.  Clear frame around "Life is Good" and the dotted flower are from Making Memories.  Ribbon is by American Crafts.  Jewels by Kaiser Craft.  I used Pearl Glimmer Mist by Tattered Angels on the white flower.  All other items are big unknowns as to the manufacturers.

Custom Journal: Flower Power

This is a custom journal I made as a gift to a college student.  I used Zutter Bind-It-All bracket covers and wire in silver.  The paper on the inside is plain printer paper cut to size.  The patterned paper and ribbon are  We R Memory Keepers.  Unsure of the flowers and buttons.  The white flower is decorated with Stickles.

This picture does a better representation of the colors and sparkle.

Our 2009 Christmas Card

I made 80 of the card below for our family Christmas card this year.  I got my inspiration from the JOY card on this post at Christmas with the Cricut.  It turned out much different then the original, and I actually think it looks great and joyful!

Supplies Used:  BoBunny patterned papers, Archivers blue cardstock, Bazzill Bling cardstock, Fiskars Threading Water Punch, Cricut with the Storybook cartridge.

Custom Favor Boxes

I got this idea from the Spellbinders make and take at ScrapFest this year.  Instead of using their tree Nestability, I used the Paper Dolls Dress Up cartridge and set it up in Design Studio so I could just attach the paper to the cutting mat and it would cut in the right place every time.  I bought thicker ribbon then I had wanted to, but the bows turned out nice.  This isn't the best angle to see it, but the bows were nice and plump on top of the boxes.  I covered the tree with acetate and filled the box with plain M&Ms.

The first person that ordered them loved how they turned out and I'm doing the other delivery tonight.  I hope she likes them too!

I can see these being used for other holidays and events too.  You could to a wedding bell, a cupcake, an Easter bunny or basket or any other number of shapes.  I'm actually giving myself ideas for my own holidays.

If you are interested in ordering a custom item, feel free to contact me via email or by leaving a comment on my blog.  I will always try to accomodate orders!

Stay tuned for some custom journals I made for someone to give as Christmas gifts and later this week I'll post a picture of the Christmas card I mailed out for our family this year.
