Sand And Wedding Bells: Custom Beach Wedding Scrapbook

When I was asked to make a full-fledged beach themed scrapbook I was a little nervous it would turn out cheesy. In spite of the fact that I'm an avid scrapper I am not always so confident when bold colors are involved. I think the Paradise Collection by BoBunny did the trick and I really ended up liking this book a bunch. Hope the bride agrees!

Punk Rock Princess

I had a request from my son's kindergarten teacher to make her baby book and I was so honored, she's been a more than fantastic teacher. So, here it is in all its glory! I have made a punked out baby girl mini album before but on this one she requested different page layouts for letters from mom and dad (which I absolutely adore~see below), each month of baby's first year, and certain holidays, I just love these additions the book. To order your custom scrapbook visit me at Papercut Kitchen. Happy Scrapping! P.S. The baby boy version is already made and ready to ship, see it here.

Cirque du Papercut Kitchen

I love working on things that are a little more unique than traditional. Most of them aren't totally off the wall, just a little more than your straight pink for girls/blue for boys. My latest custom order was for a circus themed mini album for a baby girl and here's the show and tell! To get your own custom mini album just drop me a note over at my shop, Papercut Kitchen.

Papercut Kitchen Hang Tags

This is a custom made batch of hang tags (700 to be precise!) all packed up and ready to go to their new home, where they will live out the rest of their days as pricing tags for some fantastic handmade jewelry. I love her idea of folding card hang tags so she can write more than a price on some of her pieces.

Below are the tags I made for the same client awhile back. Isn't it amazing how the paper changes the style and feel so much? I think it's part of what keeps me excited about working with paper, there are endless combinations! And working on them is like meditation for me, a welcome excuse to just sit.

p.s. I don't currently have a listing for hang tags in my shop but if you contact me at Papercut Kitchen I'd be happy to take a custom order.

May Day Craft Show

Last Saturday I sold my wares (not quite as many as hoped but enough) at the May Day Craft Show held at ArtChurch in Hot Springs, AR. Though it wasn't a huge financial success I made a bit and more importantly had a blast with my honey and all the other artists! I wasn't super thrilled with the way I set up my booth this time. I'm learning something at each show. There have only been three, so I can't be too hard on myself. Ok, I can, I'm a picky pants like that, but I'm doing my best to start cutting myself some slack.

My neighbor across the way was the fantastic Heather Montgomery. I couldn't resist acquiring a second pendant, they are just too beautiful. This time I picked a sailor pin-up girl and I love her so much I wore an outfit around her today!

The always colorful Doc Ray was at the show too. He was my neighbor at the last two shows and it makes me happy just to see him! Not to mention his out of this world gorgeous tie-dye.

Happy Crafting!
