Some Pages From My 2012 Word Journal

My word for the year is VISION.  Do our eyes tell our brain what we see or does our brain tell our eyes what to see?  How do I perfect my vision?  Here are a few of my pages using my little Strathmore Drawing Pad.  I'm having fun and learning about myself in the process.  That's what it is all about, my friends!  MY STORY (and I'm sticking to it!)

What I've Done With My Christmas Cards....

I am one of those who sufferes from CCG.  I've had it for years and just can't seem to overcome it.  Maybe some of you have it, too?  Yes, I have CHRISTMAS CARD GUILT!  That's right....I CAN'T throw them just doesn't seem right.  Every year they sit piled on a corner of my desk while I await a brilliant inspiration to come over me.  Last ideas.  I even went so far as to add the 2010 cards UNDER the 2011 cards we started to receive!  Sad, isn't it.  Makes us look real popular, though!  Christmas Cards halfway up to the ceiling!  LOL!  Our of the blue, I ran across this video on You Tube by Jennibellie and all my problems were solved!!  Here are photos of the album I made using my Christmas Cards and the binding tutorial from Jennibellie.  I also did a You Tube Video telling more about the album, so please visit me there, too.  I had to do a Part 1 and Part 2 since I can't seem to STOP TALKING!!!

Graphic 45 Mini Album Journal!!!!

Just finished this last Friday and love the way it turned out! I used the Strathmore Drawing Pad as the book base but instead of using scrap papers like I've done in the past, I used the Graphic 45 Tropical Travelogue Paper Collection. I LOVE THE COLORS!!!!! Every page in this book makes me smile. Maybe I'm just nuts, but at least I am a happy one..... hehehehe.

There are 21 pages in this book which would mean 42 photos so to see them all, please go to You Tube and you can see the WHOLE thing on my video. This is the link, I think...

I will try and put a You Tube Link on here somewhere....ANOTHER new thingy! Sigh.....

Or just do a search for Paperkitz on You Tube!!! That would probably be your best bet until further notice...(HUGS!!!)

And More Photos!

Here are some more gifts I made over the last month....

That's all the photos I can find for now. I must still have some on the camera, but will save those for later. Don't want you all to get too bored looking at pictures! Wishing you all a Very Happy New Year and may all your dreams inspire you to MAKE THEM HAPPEN! (((HUGS)))


It's been so long since I posted, I almost forgot how to do it! Hopefully, I will be better at posting this year. I was so busy before and over the Holidays as I made a lot of gifts this year! I made mini albums, organizers, cards, ornaments and I forget what all! Here is a sampling of what I have been doing.....

I have to upload more photos so I'll be back!
