I hope that everyone is having a wonderful holiday season.

Here are some projects that I got finished just in time to give them as gifts. I made these candles with pictures printed on regular computer paper and wrapped them around the candles and put wax paper tightly around the candle and pictures. I then used my heat gun to 'melt' the wax into the paper. You can see the wax seep into the paper. After it was all darkened by the wax, I peeled off the wax paper and this is what it produced. It is a picture of all of my mothers grandchildren with her mother (my grandmother). I made one for her and one for my grandmother. I decorated them with a little bit of paper wrapped around it and some raffia embellishment, tied in a bow. I placed them in glass candle holders and gave them as Christmas presents.

Here are some mini CD albums that I created with my Bind-It-All by Zutter. This is a very handy tool when you want to bind albums or calendars together. I used Making Memories 6x6 Embellishment Paper packs to cover the CD's and cut the circles with my cricut by Provo Craft and the George cartridge. I also cut the letters for FAMILY out of chipboard with the cricut (multicut feature on the Expression) and the Plantain School Book cartridge. The stamps that I used are all from Fancy Pants Designs. They were very fun to make, but they were a little time consuming because I sanded all of the circles to fit the CD's perfectly and give it a little bit of a distressed look. I made 4 total (2 of each design).


  1. Those look great! My Bind It All sit on my self....I need to start using it!...LOL...

  2. Cute, cute, cute...I've gotta get me a BIA and make one of these! great job.
