Tutorial: Instagram File Mini Album

Today I’m calling you over to The Curtsey Boutique blog to check out my tutorial for this cool glassine envelope file mini album that is the perfect size to hold Instagram photos.  I made mine as a showcase for a week’s worth of everyday life snapshots. 

So fun! I used On the Bright Side from My Mind’s Eye for this and of course lots of fun embellishments from The Curtsey Boutique!

I am linking this up to the Instalove Paper Issues theme... go link up your instagram projects and enter to win a set of printed Instagram photos from Origrami!

Up in the Clouds

The girls at Paper Issues have their heads in the clouds! Yep, it’s time for a new theme… we want to see your clouds, birds, planes, stars, rainbows and other airy type stuff.  Go here to link up.

Oh, wait… you need some incentive?? 

Pshhhht.  Ok, then.  How about a Some Odd Girl giveaway of THREE stamp sets??  BAZINGA!

And while you’re daydreaming about how fabulous it would be to win take a look see at this card I made.  Balloon!  And stars!  Up in the clouds!

I used Pink Paislee’s Cottage Farms and Luxe lines on this.  Thanks for taking a peek and remember to go link up!

Please allow me to introduce… myself.

It’s introduction time at Fancy Pants Designs and today you’ll see little ole me up on their blog.  Check it out to read my goofy bio and see my “me” page!


Out of Envelopes? No Problem!

Why is it that I have a hard time buying 5 x 7 envelopes in a pack without cards?!  You’d think this would be an easy thing to find but it seems I either have to buy them in a pack with blank cards or purchase eleventy billion envelopes in a carton at the big office stores. 

Ok, FINE, whatever!  I’ll make my own, thankyouverymuch. 

This sort of envelope is best suited to cards that you will not be mailing, for obvious reasons.


I used Fancy Pants Designs’ Blissful Blizzard and goodies from The Curtsey Boutique on this set that is a welcome card for a new baby boy. 

Thanks for taking a look today!
