Where I've been and where I'm going

Hey folks its been too long! A lot has happened since I last blogged. We are expecting our fourth child, another boy, if you can believe it. We have also moved across the country to Oregon of all places.  I am still at home with the kiddos and looking forward to completing the set with our new addition in April. Due to my husband's constant badgering about getting back to doing something I enjoy, he has taken the liberty of designing a new site for me. It is called  

Snafty is a place for me to showcase snazzy crafts I am working on either from my own inpiration or from Pinterest and other places. It has a store opening next month in which I will showcase starter kits and finished products for people who want to play along but don't want to start from scratch. I am very excited about this new venture and hope you all will join me over there. I've got a new post up now so head over and check it out!

Please sign up for emails and follow me on Twitter @SnaftyCrafty.

Birthday Card for Granny

This weekend my husband's grandmother is having a birthday. I made her a card that doubles as a mini album. I used one of my favorite mediums, a cereal box. It's very simple. I just cut two 10 by 5 rectangles from the box and fold each in half. Then, I set them up at a zig zag and stapled them together.

After that I just added paper, mats, photos, and embellishments that I cut from scrapbooking paper. I inked the mats and paper with blue ink to match my "cool pool" color scheme.

My favorite thing about this card/album is that either side when closed can be seen as the front. So you are looking at the beginning no matter which way its turned.

The pictures were taken a week ago at this same grandmother's pool. So she not only gets a cute birthday card, but memories from the time she got to spend with her great grandson's this summer!
