Something New

So I have a new project to share today, and it's not a card! :) Isn't this album the cutest? It's called a bracket album and it's a kit from Say It With Letters.
It comes with the album, papers and fun embellishments (which I love!) and there was even a lot left over for other projects. Everything coordinated beautifully - you really should go check it out and get one for yourself.

These next two projects are also from Say It With Letters. The tree is a Maya Road chipboard album that I made into a little wall hanging. This project uses darling Say It With Letters shapes. I altered each one and then made a background and grouped them all together. I love how it looks on my studio wall.
And this last project was something my daughter and I did together. A good friend of mine gave me some fresh lavender from her garden and we sewed it into these cute little pillows. She sleeps with hers under her bed pillow because I'd read somewhere that it helps when you can't sleep. I'll turn my daughter into a crafter yet - and get her to sleep! :) Hope you're all enjoying your week!

I *love* all these projects!!! The bracket album is very cool and your "sweets" sign is just adorable!!!

I have a small lavender pillow that I use when I have a headache never thought to put it under my pillow on restless nights, I am going to have to give that a try. It's been hard getting back on school time!

All of your projects are so cute! Love the colors of the bracket album kit and your sweet treats board is great-I especially love the scalloped border-is the upper border pieced. I have one of the Maya Road chipboard tree albums and have been trying to decide what to do with it...your idea is a good one.
Did you know that lavender is also a natural moth repellent? I have little tulle net bags of lavender tucked in with all of my winter sweaters. Keeps the bugs away and of course they smell wonderful when you unpack them.

Your album is adorable! I got the one with the darker papers and loved it! I love what you did with your deserts and that you hung them on the background - looks so yummy! Lavender is def. known for helping them sleep. You should get lavender bubble bath - it works!
