Love Notes Decorative Box & Album (and Class!)

Hello everyone. I hope you're doing well. Today I'm sharing my Decorative Box and Mini Album project I initially created for Creativation 2019 using Graphic 45's beautiful new "Love Notes" collection. This is now a CLASS right here in my area and I'll provide all the details at the end of the post.


This decorative box can be used as a pretty display piece and the mini album can fit inside or be displayed separately. Students will learn how to make this custom base for the Graphic 45 black mixed media box, as well as all kinds of techniques throughout.


The mini album is created using 5 of the 6 black cardstock inserts which come with the box, and can be displayed in an accordion style, and folds up in a rolled-up fashion when closed.


The inside and outside can accommodate photos and journaling. Students will learn a simple method to bind the inserts together as well as how to create easy pockets for the pretty tags from the 6th cardstock insert.

Aviator's Flight Log Book with Video Tutorial

I've had this idea on my mind for a while now, leading up to my friend Sarah's birthday this month. It's a vintage-style aviator's flight log book using graphics from various sources, Eileen Hull's "wrapped journal" die and some antique metal embellishments. Sarah and I have been friends for over 30 years. She's a former Air Force pilot and is in the process of finishing building her own airplane! So I thought it would only be fitting to make her a functional log book for her journeys.

Here's a short video taking you through the process of how I created it, along with some tips and details along the way.

It's a departure from my Graphic 45 design projects, as you'll see, which I think is good to do from time to time. Plus, I use up older papers and embellishments in my stash which is salso a good thing.

I hope you enjoy!

Creativation and Creative Mountain Retreat registration!


Soon I'll be off to Phoenix for Creativation, the annual craft and hobby show! This is the best place to see ALL the new and upcoming craft products (and trends) in the industry before they are sold in stores, and to connect with other designers, exhibitors and store owners. I'll be attending this year's show with my friend and assistant Tiffany and we'll be taking a few fun classes together so we're sure to have a great time.

I'll be posting lots of photos and videos on my social media, so be sure to follow me on Facebook and Instagram. (my links are in the righthand column of this blog page.) The show officially begins this Saturday, but I'll give you some good stuff to watch and see up until then as well as during the show.


Your Creative Mountain Retreat registration begins tomorrow evening, 7 p.m. EST. We had a shared room become available since the last time I posted, so be sure to check the Retreat Blog for all the info and updates. Read through the main page and the Registration page (tab at the top) so you are fully informed and are ready to go at 7 p.m. Good luck!
