This is your Life...so far....

Hi All!

The past few weeks have been crazy! Birthdays, Graduation, dance recitals, making gifts and all this only to be complicated by my car undriveable! Its been hectic, but all is calming down now. Today's feature is a book I made for my niece for her graduation. She turned 18 in May and then Graduated high school two weeks later.

This was another BIG BOOK! I used 12 x 12 cardstock adhered to 12 x 12 sheets of chipboard. I used basic colors (Becca is not a "frilly" type person, and her mom told me Becca's favorite color is "Cubbie" blue!)

For the cover, I used clear acrylic sheets for the front and back, and the page beneath it was made with Whitewash Coredinations paper, embossed with Cuttlebug folders. Layer underneath was trimmed with Martha Steward border punch. Title was cut using the Gazelle.

Throughout the book, I used several different Martha Stewart or EK Success border punches.

Printed paper from these two pages is from the Birthday Stack from Paper Studio (Hobby Lobby) Cupcake and shapes were cut using Sweet Treats Cricut Cartridge.

The book was a big hit, my niece really loved it!

My next project is for another family member that will be celebrating a big birthday milestone!

Thanks for stopping by....now that things are settling down, I'll be able to post more often. Hope you can come back soon!

Koala-t hugs,



  1. Wow! This is perfect. I know your niece will treasure this for years~
