This Christmas mini album (gift for my friend and former boss Mary) is one of my most recent projects, on which I used a Poinsettia created with the Sizzix Tim Holtz Tattered Poinsettia die. I love the versatility of this die. The day I received it I think I made 10 of them using different patterned papers, embossing folders and solid papers just to see what I could come up with. Click on the picture for a closer look at the flower.
This Pretty-in-Pink mini album was also a gift for a friend for pics of her first grand baby. I used a ton of dies on this project, but am adding just a few pictures. On the cover I used the Tim Holtz Caged Bird die to create my focal point. On the next page I created a tag pocket using the Tim Holtz Fanciful Flight die. In the next photo you can see the Onesie I made using the Bigz Baby Onesie die. I tucked this in a pocket to create a photo and/or journaling spot. It's not shown but on the back I created ruffles on the bum with lace . . . too cute! In the last picture you will also catch a glimpse of the page pocket tags created with the Ornate On the Edge die.
This little mini album was a Mother's Day gift for my Mom. You can see the closure is made using the Tim Holtz Hardware Findings die (when I make these I cut them as a sandwich with my solid or patterned paper on the outside and Tyvek or shipping tape in the middle so it will never tear). I created the metal corners using plumbers tape and an embossing folder.
This wedding cake was a gift for a friend. The bottom layer encases the mini album.
On this simple Halloween mini album, I created a mummy by wrapping strips of torn fabric around my dress form from the Tim Holtz Sewing Room die.
This was a Christmas gift housed in a Take Out Box using a Bigz die.
In this Harley Davidson mini album I used the Originals Filmstrip die to create a double photo spot.
Here I created a tiny envelope to tuck secrets inside this Halloween apothecary cabinet using the originals square envelope die.
This baby buggy and the mini album which is houses were created entirely of chipboard and cardstock. For the tags inside this mini album I used the Tim Holtz Plaque On the Edge die.
I used the same die to create the pages for this graduating size mini album (oops! I almost forgot the flower on the front uses the Originals Flower Layers #2 die).
I created this flower, mixing paper and fabric using the Originals Flower Layers die and the Tim Holtz Collage embossing folder. Below it is the mini album cover for which I created it. The cover also includes a Tim Holtz Elegant Flourish.
This dress form was created using the Tim Holtz Sewing Room die.
I created this flower using the Tim Holtz Tattered Florals die using fabric.
I created 35 of these for my son's 2nd grade Halloween party, using the Tim Holtz Townscape (cut in pieces) and Scallops On the Edge dies and the originals Circle Scallop Frame (inside portion).
These journals were created using chipboard which I cut into various shapes using my BigKick (you will recognize the dies I'm sure), gluing them to the front and back covers and then covering the entire outside with plumbers' tape.
This mini expanding file folder uses the Tim Holtz Ornate On the Edge die.
The pages of this mini use the Tim Holtz Brackets On the Edge Die.
This is an overnight case I've altered using the Caged Bird again as a focal point.
As you can see, I rely heavily on my Sizzix tools in all of my paper crafting, whether it be scrapbooking, altered art, or even party favor bags!
Thanks for allowing me to share my projects with you,

Unfortunately, my die storage has room for only a portion of my dies . . . I'm gonna need to find a second one of these DVD stands!
