Australian reverse piano hinge book binding technique

My friend Julie taught me this one, I LOVE it--the pages are REMOVABLE!!!  How perfect would that be for a collaborative project?  I'm contemplating attempting or organize a layout swap, maybe a 5 for 5?  Hmmm . . .
The tutorial is up today at the CutCardstock blog.

Happy 1st Birthday! Lumberjack/outdoor themed party

Just a few pictures of the grandbaby boy's first birthday.  His mama had me make lots of decorations, with lots of pinterest inspiration.






Of course, once everyone started arriving, I didn't have time to take pictures!  Other than that, we've been busy having the flu . . . enough said.

Easy Envelope Advent Calendar

Easy Envelope Advent Calendar, in my post today at CutCardStock--so fun to make, and simple, too!

Envelopes, patterned papers, glitter papers, and Christmas collage images from Altered Pages.  I used the Holiday Postcards, Christmas Minibook, and Santa Santa Santa--there are tons more to choose from, and not just in traditional red and greens.

For all the collage images you need, plus the numbers, you can download the Altered Pages kit HERE.  Just add your own envelopes, grab a gluestick, and have at it!
