Open House

I wanted to share with you some of the projects that I completed for my first Open House last week. I made the little picks above for fruit 'stabbing' purposes. I got these picks from Target and they were perfect because they are flat at the top, perfect for using the Tombow, and very easy to do...this was a good TV watching project, and a great way to feature other uses for my CTMH stuff.

Another, 'other use' for CTMH projects. Kind of a birth announcement in a dual frame. This would be a great baby gift, and so easy to do do!

Finally, saving the best for the last. Flip Flaps! I'm currently finishing up some albums that are not the drop-in style, but I just HAD to showcase a page with Flip Flaps at the Open House. I love these things! I seriously think that the first thought that went through my head when I saw Flip Flaps for the first time was, "where have you been my whole life?" How versatile, and how easy to use. How many times have I sat and debated and debated which pictures to leave out because I didn't have enough for two whole layouts? Never again. I love how easy these are to use, how you can hide journaling, and how you can layer similar pictures to make a kind of flip book. So much fun!
