Zoo Day Waterfall Folio

Today I am so excited to show you my Waterfall Folio.. 
I love making Waterfall Folios, I have made several of the ones that Ginger from My Sister Scrapper has a tutorial for. But I decided that I wanted one a bit different and hold a little different size photos. 

So this morning I created something that I think fits more of what I have been wanting to make... 

This waterfall folio measures 5" x 6 1/2" 
It can hold approx 20 pictures... 

I used Echo Park " Day At The Zoo" Paper Kit. 
I got it from " A Cherry On Top" 

I made an accordion pocket on the left side.
I got the idea from Ginger (My Sister Scrapper) 

I made the waterfall smaller  with less flaps than Ginger's original Waterfall Folio. 

you can fit 2 1/2" x 3 3/4" photos on the each one... 
In the pocket there are 5 photo mats and they will hold the same size photos as the waterfall.. 

The Giraffe is from SVG Cuts Set " Wild Child Set" 
Title on Cover is from Miss Kate's Cuttables Set  " Zoo Fun Bundle" 
Stickers are from the stick sheet that comes with the Paper Kit. 

Large leaves are from " Wild Child Set" 
Smaller leaves are from the title  "Zoo Fun Bundle" 

This makes a great quick and easy project... 

I currently working on a tutorial for this Waterfall Folio and hopefully will have it up next week... 

I hope you enjoyed todays project and you come back again soon...

Baby Bottle Gift

Happy Monday! 

I am excited about today's project.... 
One of our friends daughters just had two precious baby girls premature last week... they were born at 23 weeks.. and they both only weigh approx 1.4 pounds each... 

They are so precious... I wanted to make them each something... So I thought how adorable would it be to use these little baby botttles to put a small gift inside for them... 

The Bottle is from SVG Cuts.. Tiny Miracle Kit...
Click on the Picture to take you to the kit... 

I put a little outfit in side the bottle

I enjoyed making these bottle for the twins... They were quick and easy to put together... 
You can make them for boy or girl... 
I am going to be making more of this bottle for my daughter's baby shower in February and we are doing a Country Theme for her, so stop by to see what I do with this bottle to fit into the them... 

Thank you for stopping by today 
Come Back Again Soon... 

Happy Crafting...

Family Camp Out Mini Album

Happy Friday Everyone!
Today I wanted to share another mini album that I made yesterday...
We are planning a family camping trip for the middle of August... it will be the first time in 5 years that we get to go away camping for a weekend ... and the best part is we are doing it with our children and our grandchildren...
I am so excited and cannot wait...

I wanted to have something already to go for when we got back from our camping trip for the photos ... I went through some of my older paper packs and found this cute paper pack that I bought a few years ago and forgot I even had...

Paper Pack is " Gone Camping" from Best Creations Inc.

I used a few different Cricut Cartridges to make the embellishments for this mini album...

Cartridges Used:
Family Album
Campin' Critters
When I was a Kid
Outdoor man

This adorable Mini Album measures 4 1/4" x 4 1/4"
pages are 4" x 4"

I can get approx 45 photos and journaling in this album... lots of room for the great memories...

I created a waterfall on the inside front cover and also another one on the rear inside cover.

I have tags in the pocket here ( I have to still add the twine to the tags) 

I made a belly ban here and made this card to hold more photos 

Another pocket with some cut outs from the paper pack

Another belly ban and card for more photos
 and Journaling


I hope you enjoyed this project for today and come back again...
