I'm Grateful Mini Envelope Box

The past few days were crazy. Our country has been under rockets’ attacks and life has been scary and stressful. I found it really hard to create anything, my mind just didn’t have the energy to think about and be full of ideas like it usually is. I asked for some advice from my dear FB friends and they said “start with something small”. Well…I decided enough is enough, I would force myself to create something, something small. During the past few days I had a lot of time to think about what I’m grateful for. Rockets tend to put things in perspective…I wanted those things I’m grateful for to be with me all the time so I’ll never forget, so I created a little mini envelope box to hold them. This box will be my treasure box filled with photos of my family and friends and small cards with inspiring words and sentences written on them, the kind of …

DCC – Handmade with LOVE

Hi crafters! It’s the first Monday of the month and we are hopping again with all my Designer Craft Connection friends! This time I created a mini album that is not only created with love but is all about love.   This cute little mini is all about pockets and hidden treasures. Each page is actually a pocket that hides a tag inside. A tag for secret loving messages or any other message you want to write.   For more amazing projects, just click on the DCC button on the right hand side of my blog.   Have fun creating! Einat

Back to school

My kids go back to school in a few days! I always like to make them a card with a few motivating words to start the new school year. They really like it and they keep all the cards in their rooms. This year I made a mini album card, it’s a folding card that is like a small mini album. I used Kaiser Craft paper and embellished it with Echo Park stickers. They were not “school” stickers with the traditional apple or pencil because my boys are too big for that…or at least that’s what they say! So I used things that are related to school like a ruler, globe, clock, numbers and days of the week. These cards will be waiting next to their beds when they wake up on the first day of school. Have a good year guys!! Have fun creating! Einat

1 sheet of paper tutorial – Love Letters mini album

I really like scrapbooking and paper projects that are fun, fast, not expensive and beautiful. This got me thinking of different ways to make a project from only one sheet of paper. The idea is to create a project that can be made using only one sheet of paper and all the embellishments added to it will be only a suggestion and not a must. The first project is a cute mini album titled Love Letters. You will need: 1 sheet of double sided cardstock Embellishments – if you want 1. Cut three 4″ by 8″ rectangles. Fold them in half to create squares. 2. Adhere two of the rectangles back to back only near the edges of the paper, leaving a pocket. 3. Adhere the third rectangle on the outside, wrapping the other rectangles. Put the adhesive only on three sides of each square, leaving pockets facing sideways. 4. From the strip of paper remaining cut three tags: 4″ by …
