More Mini Albums

As I have mentioned, I have been slacking off lately. I had very few items available for my craft shows so I have focused my efforts on creating some goodies that will be for sale at the Apple Festival (Sat Oct 3rd 10-4 pm) on Huguenot Street in New Paltz. I hope my local readers take the time to stop by at my booth while enjoying some awesome apple treats.

Gratuitous Cuteness

Crafty Times are Upon Me

It's officially fall and you know what that means.... well, ok, maybe you don't know what that means.... It means craft show season is HERE. The other day I got out my big bin of craft goodies and found........ Hardly Anything!!!!!!!! EEEEK. I must have sold most of my goodies through the year (that's a good thing) but hadn't made things to replace them (that's a bad thing) so I will be spending the next week and a half being VERY crafty.

If you have Halloween photos of your little ghoul... this album is for you:

This is a cool vintage looking Christmas album... perfect for holiday memories:

I've Been Busy

I have been super busy with some custom orders and they're finally finished. I took a risk and listed 20 custom pages on Ebay and had 2 clients take me up on the offer and both had their requests come in within a few days of each other which was "interesting". So I made 44 pages in less than a week (thank goodness for 5 day a week preschool. You'd be amazed how many pages you can make in 3 hours with no kids around).

Yes, 44 pages.... one client couldn't decide on just 20 pages LOL.

Family Time

Is there anything better or more important than time spent with family? I had that in mind when building a cute album to hold onto those special memories.

Fun with My Newest Goodies!

Being part of a design team definitely has its perks! Happy Scrappin Scrapbooking is unique in that the wonderful ladies there don't send a pre-set kit. Design team members shop for their own goodies in their super-stocked store (click HERE to see the selection). With so much to choose, it was really difficult! I concentrated on My Mind's Eye, one of my favorite companies.

It's All Greek to Me

My lovely Greek goddess of a neighbor, Marina (flattery goes a long way) requested these albums as a baby shower gift for a soon-t0-be mommy of two little Greek boys. These names are traditional Greek names but they get the same "name album treatment" here at Jeune Girl Headquarters. Best wishes to this mom and I hope she fills these albums with many wonderful memories!

Crafting Connection

I am almost afraid to give out this link. One of my crafty friends has started her own website with online store and I'm so proud that she got it up and running. Now my best kept secret will be OUT! But I wish her the best of luck with the store and hope she does really well.

Shown above are my FAVORITE ITEMS. These are little dew drops that Suzanne hand makes. They make PERFECT centers for flowers and can be laid out in a pattern to make cool swirls. I was in awe when these arrived on my doorstep. And look at the packaging!!!! So cute!!!!! I hope you take the time to check out here store click HERE and happy shopping!

I Think I'm Obsessed....

.... with Halloween mini-albums. Normally, I hoard my supplies for a few years and finally use the paper when it's really out of style. I didn't want to make that mistake with these great papers but I had more Halloween supplies than I would ever use for my own projects. So I decided to create mini-albums. When my first one had a "bidding war" on Ebay I figured I had hit on something that would be hot for this fall. So now I've created 2 more minis for your bidding pleasure!

The Color Purple

Here's the thing.... purple gets no love from the scrapbooking world. But I have to say that about 50% of my custom orders for girls asks for purple or lavender. I struggle to find just the right paper since manufacturers don't seem to make enough purple. When I was asked to make a purple and green lunch box I figured no problem.... I'll just hit up the stash... only to come up empty! A very smart scrapper told me to make my own purple paper digitally and I'm glad I reached out and asked. Such a simple solution! (I won't go into detail on how long it took me to finally print this out with my bipolar printer!)

Stop the Insanity!!!!!!!

I just ordered over 400 photos from Snapfish today and I wonder if I'm crazy enough to attempt to scrap them (along with the other 100 or so I have waiting for me) so today I fiddled with some photos that eventually would have been added to the pile. Using my trusty Photoshop Elements, I combined 2 photos into one so when my next Snapfish order goes in, maybe it will only be 200 photos!!!!
