Mini Books

Scrapbooking is going GREEN now… How important recycling is to you? Well there is a way to help our planet to get read of some elements of trash we all have around our houses. And guess how it’s going to be? The nicest way you can even imaging, without smalls and nasty trashcans stuff…
You can create a mini album from the rolls of the toilet paper!!! Hm, why didn’t I think of this brilliant idea myself? None the less, here it is…
Beautiful mini book for any occasion...Made from rolls of toilet paper with different printed colorful papers and beautiful 3D embellishments. It has 8 pages and 5 double sided insert pages with deco tabs for easier pull out. You can personalize it with small pictures and some journaling. Nothing else will make your friend or family member feel more special than this unique mini album, which can feet in a palm of your hand.

There are two books in this collection: Spring, and classic Black and White

Bold Backgrounds card workshop

This set of 4 cards was created from the Archiver’s kit Bold Backgrounds Card Workshop, featured by Hero Arts stamps. In just couple hours you are having that great set of cards in your hands, unreal! Each card is unique. If you’ll ask me which on is your favorite, I wouldn’t be able to decide, that’s why I am posting it as a set. While working on it I was finding myself been carried away with my imagination, and thank god we had a teacher helping us and keeping our creative minds on a track…
The first card in this set called Friends
Blanding techniques with the Ranger paint dabbers, stamping Hero Arts stamps with Antique Writing Background cling, beautiful butterfly and gorgeous stamp Friend with American Craft caramel string and some Hero Arts sparkly embellishments, which all together creates such a wonderful card.
Bring on the happy – that’s the name of the next card, which is as beautiful as the rest of cards in this collection
Bring on the Happy
What a bright idea of multiple usages of the Small Open Flower and Solid Flower Cling Hero Arts stamps with different sizes circle punches, and one of my favorite elements – Kraft corrugated paper. Simplicity of technique creating 8 or 4 petal flowers is blowing my mind away.
Card Enjoy has several top features
First thing first… The die Sizzix A2 Card with Flap was made on Tim Holtz Vagabond die-cutting machine. How exciting is this! I would go on any crop or workshop if they would allow using their dies and Vagabond. But that’s just one extremely exciting part of this card… Another one is stamping with Hero Arts stamps, guess where… Everywhere! You are stamping the cutest polka dot stamp and the back flip of the envelope on beautiful Lettuce colored by Ranger paint dabber background with not less original Sandal paint, as well as gorgeous stamp and Espresso paint on canvas with fine printed word Enjoy. Flowers created with Hero Arts stamps and Ranger Pool &Wild Plum paint dabbers, Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher, cute buttons and gems, all this elements just want you to create more and more…
And the fourth card of this set is card Kindness
The name of this card says it all… Looking at this card, holding it in your hands will give you that feeling of home and calmness… Beautiful Classic Fabric Design Background stamp by Hero Arts is just the background of this creation. Small print in Espresso at the right low side of the card with Thank You Definition background stamp, topped with piece of stamped canvas and painted in Lettuce color nicely tight into a bow American Crafts string, and blooming field of stamped and painted with Glimmer Glaze cream blossoms, all of it brining peace into your heart.
Enjoy it! Thanks for looking!

Uniquely Unity Cards

Uniquely Unity Set by Natalia Cantwell
Uniquely Unity Set, a photo by Natalia Cantwell on Flickr.

Nothing is Worth More Than Today - that is the name of the original card in Uniquely Unity workshop set by Archiver’s. All elements put together so nicely brining that unforgettable home feeling to this card.
Joy Beyond Measure – it’s the second original card in Uniquely Unity workshop set by Archiver’s. Love their rolled flowers. That was so much fun to learn to do. Instructions were so clear, and made whole process in delightful experiment of creativity which you can see in my next two cards.
My design of Joy Beyond Measure – in the top right corner was inspired by whole theme of this set. Pretty rolled flowers made it simply adorable.
The last card isn’t themed, but it’s adding that delicate touch to the whole set by layers of decorative edges and corners created with Martha Stewart punches and finished with my new favorite Frosted Lace Stickles.
Available with Uniquely Unity Set on

Uniquely Unity Set


Great set of 10 page mini paper bag album, 3 tags and 4 cards created from Archiver's kit specially made by Unity Stamp Company.

Originally this kit included mini album and just 1 tag with 2 cards, but I loved it so much, so I created extra elements.
extra 2 cards and 2 tags

This set looks very cute as it is, but when you are opening the album - it cares you away.
