Valentine's Card for Card Swap

A vintage Valentine's Day print takes centerstage on the front of the card I created for the Valentine's Day card swap.  This is the first card swap I have participated in and I am loving it as much as the tag swaps.  My next step is to complete a challenge.  Hmmmmm....

Motorcycle Albums

This year, for Christmas, I created mini albums for some of my family members who "Live to Ride".  It was tough to find motorcycle themed items where I live, but I am very excited how these albums turned out.  This pink, black and silver album was for my sister-in-law. 
The pictures for this album were added later :)  The belly band actually holds tags that also held pictures and journaling spots.  She seemed to love this album when she opened it. I definitely enjoyed making it!
This album was made for my mother-in-law and her boyfriend.  They also enjoy riding their "bike"  Both albums were placed inside altered boxes that were decorated with matching paper. 
This album contained pockets instead of the belly band to place the tags for pictures and journaling.  They also seemed to enjoy their album.

January Tag Swap with KinderStampo

Above is my tag for the January Tag Swap with KinderStampO.  I throughly enjoyed designing this on my new Gypsy.  I welded a postage stamp window and bird cage cut from some of my favorite Cricut cartridges.  All cuts were made with my Cricut E -- which I love to play with.  The tag is kind of window with another smaller tag tucked into the "window" pocket.   I do not own any Peachy Keen stamps (although I would LOVE too!), so I simply drew a PKlike face on the bird.  I hope you like them!  I will be shipping them out in the morning..
