Inside: 10 reasons you’ll want to make mini albums for your photos   When I discovered mini albums a few years back I thought I discovered a treasure! I thought it was a genius solution for many of the issues I had with the large 12×12 scrapbook pages. I have to admit that since then I hardly made any layouts and I’m completely in love with the mini album concept. However I often get asked what’s the point? Why make mini albums instead of the traditional 12×12 pages? What are the benefits… why should I make them?       WHY MAKE MINI ALBUMS   MANAGEABLE PROJECT   For some people, especially me, the thought of starting a big 12X12 scrapbook is just too overwhelming and time consuming. Just the thought of starting a large page, think about how to fit all these photos to one or two pages really discourages me from even starting. When I know there …


  Inside: how to make amazing cards with special effects   Even in this era of sending cards via the internet on on your mobile phone I still prefer getting real handmade physical cards. I consider myself a modern girl, I have an account on almost every social media platform I know my way around a smart phone and a computer but there is something about opening your mail box and seeing an envelope of something other than a bill and then opening that envelope and finding a card that was made with love just for you. I love that feeling…don’t you?     MAKING CARDS WITH SPECIAL EFFECTS   The next best feeling, or maybe even the best feeling is not receiving the card but making it!

  Inside: 15 amazing house project ideas like mini albums, cards and wall hangings you must make!   This original post was written in the summer of 2014 when we had gone through a terrible experience of war. Hundreds of rockets were fired on our cities and homes. But we didn’t back down or left we stayed and toughed it out.

  Inside: how to use buttons in craft projects in a fun and easy way!   I was lucky to have a grandmother until I was in my thirties. She was an amazing sewer and I remember her making me and my sister fabric toys and dolls. When she passed away I only asked my dad for one thing: I wanted to have her button collection. As a sewer she had a LOT – color organized in empty pill containers and small boxes. What a treasure! Until this day I use her collection in my craft projects and I just know she’s looking down on me and she’s really happy.     Buttons go back to prehistoric times and are around since men have started clothing themselves. Over the years they changed from animal bones to gold and ivory and from a necessity to a status symbol. By the 20th century they could be mass produced and buttons began to …
