Live Life Together
An album of a ” quick overview” of where my husband, myself and our children were at over a three month period. I added lots of digital journaling, some of which was over the top of reduced opacity photos.

Days of Water, Fun, and Adventure
Made for Lucky Girl Crafts, as a guest designer. The photos are of our family adventures at the lake and pool, so everything is “water” themed.
Pages are cheap chipboard from a discount store, painted in acrylic paints, distress paints, or covered in summer themed papers. Crabs are punched using Fiskars squeeze punch, hibiscus flower stenciled using a mask made from patterned paper…..and was misted using Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist in Harvest Orange.
The Haunted House Halloween Party Album
This album was made of a big annual family party. I knew that lots of people would be looking at it, so i made it to open like the doors of a house, so it would be extra wide, and offer plenty of viewing space. The pages all fit together, using papers that work seamlessly throughout, and can be turned separately without the subjects being confusing.
I distressed the corrugated cardboard covers and painted it with black acrylic paint. Once that dried, I added layers of mist in silver and white. The handle to the door is from a drawer in my garage, it came from an old kitchen cabinet. The lock and plate are Tim Holtz. All other items are Jenni Bowlin and Authentique. The whole thing is bound with my Zutter bind-it-all.
A mini album I made as a guest designer for Donna Salazar Designs. This 7×7 book was created using covers of Zutter corrugated board that was painted with white paint, and distressed with mixed media inx by Clearsnap. The chipboard doll is by Donna as well, and I fussy cut wings from her papers to make her a fairy. A few of the inner pages, as well as the canvas pennant on the cover, are by Maya Road. This whole mini fits in an altered box.
