Christmas at Checkered Cottage . . .
Organize with Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts . . .

A bit of this and a little of that . . .


Timi & I run For Keeps Sake Events.

We just finished hosting a weekend

Girlfriends Getaway.

Thought I'd show you what I worked on while at the Getaway.


Had so much fun creating this mini-book

lots of

Graphic 45

using a little

Melissa Frances

a bit of

Prima Marketing

and some papers from an old

K&Company collection.


Throw in a little bling and a combination of 3 types of bookbinding

Above is the inside cover.

You may have noticed the glass-like knob on the cover.

That's a new Prima Marketing design from Frank Garcia.

They're called

Memory Hardware Orleans Antique Knobs

You get 8 pieces and the suggested retail price is only $7!


The page above closes with a magnet and the metal butterfly.

These beautifully cut leaves are by

Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts.

that opens to reveal more territory and a belly band.


Another fold out closed with a ribbon


and lots of real estate inside.


I am in love with these adhesive rub-ons from

Prima Marketing.


This is the one I used

along with 

Rub-On Foil Sheets.

There's lots more to choose from!


Above is a top flip

with pockets on the inside:


and ending the book with another

Prima Marketing

adhesive rub-on with foil:
