Handmade cards

I made some thank you cards and wanted to show them off, so here are a bunch of pictures of the handmade cards that I made.

I liked this layout a lot since it was cute and fast to do!

Photo Books

I found this super cute gift to make for any occasion or to make for yourself on Crafting Chicks. Cute photo books using Bare Books. You can find Bare Books here. I made my first photo book with the 5x5 bare book. I also ordered the 8x8 and that is my next project. For the pages, I used digital scrapbooking and printed out the pages. Then I used mod podge to put the printed pages on the book. Really easy to make and cute!
