Two weeks ago LIVE on Helmar's Ustream Channel there I was LIVE on with no plan and a lot of glue! I was nervous but enough we were gluing and all was good.  We started a project with a child's board book and it when something like this…….

It was a lot of fun and I appreciate all the creative input and you all "sticking" with me (don't you love the glue puns? 

I completed that album today and love it!  I did record a video of the whole process and am brushing up on my video editting skills so hope to do something with that but was so excited I just had to share the completed album. 

The best way for me to share is by photos so here is the completed album:


  • 450 Quick Dry
  • Liquid Scrap Dots
  • Acid Free Glue
  • Premium Craft Glue
  • Quickfix Adhesive Runner
  • Crackle Medium (Step 1 & 2)


  • Patterned Paper – Pink Paislee
  • Acrylic Paint – DecoArt
  • Stamps – Unity
  • Flowers – Michaels
  • Buttons – Buttons Galore & More & Jenni Bowlin
  • Inks – Marvy Heritage
  • Punch – Marvy
  • Ribbon – Creative Impressions
  • Pen – Faber-Castell

The key to this album was using the four same elements on every page (buttons, flowers, ribbon, and butterflies).  Here are the pages…….

I had such a great time making this project and just love the finished effect.  I hope you do too!  I think that will be a future class in my Studio!  Thanks everyone for the emails saying you are interested.  I will be emailing the June date!
