Spring is Blossoming Promotion

The new Spring is Blossoming Promotion started yesterday.  Spend $20 in products and have to opportunity to purchase the new Four Frames set and Paisley Petals DSP the 2011-2012 Catalog.  Even better, host a $350 workshop and recieve both items for free.  It is a great time to host a workshop!

Mini Album

My upline, Cheryl Dendinger, gave me the directions for this cute album.  I couldn't wait to make my own.  I love the new Ice Cream Parlor SAB DSP and it was the perfect paper for this project.
This is how it looks when you open the cover.

This is where you add pictures or journaling!!  So cute and simple.

Never Ending Scrapbook

 I also am hosting a class on making a Never Ending Scrapbook.  Another great gift idea for any special occasion.  I have made them for every holiday.  For this one, I used Celebrations DSP and Accents.

 Here is the book with the front cover open.

 Then the outer pages are open.

And, finally, this is the book completely open!!

Springtime Explosion Box

I love making explosion boxes.  They are a super cute and fairly easy way to show off pictures.  I made this one as a sample for a class I will be hosting in a few weeks.  I used the Love Birds Simply Scrappin' Kit.  I have enough paper left to make another box!!! 

This is the box opened up. 

Here is a picture of the box and lid.

I renamed my blog today!  I am now calling my papercrafts Just About Finished Creations.  I thought about the items I make and realized that none of them are truly finished until the purchaser puts in their own touch.  That could mean a note in the card or a picture on the scrapbook page.  Plus, those are my initials!!  I hope you like it!

I am back! I haven't had time to stamp in awhile. Summer was not so great, and I started a full time job in August. So, my free time is used cleaning and going to my kids' events. I am really trying to get back to my stamping so please check back for new projects.
