Where does the time go?

Where does the time go? I seems like this year has passed with lightening speed. I thought last week I would post some pictures to my blog. And after going to said blog I was floored that my last and only post was from December 2013. WOW!!! With that being said I have made a new resolution to keep The Electric Poppy updated. Here are some pictures of projects that I have completed over the last 7 months. Please, leave any questions for me. I will be uploading a video to demonstrate how to make a mini album card - it is made from a single 12 x 12 piece of paper. Happy Creating!
This is a mini album I made for my brother. It is constructed from a single piece of 12 x 12 cardstock, and yields 9 pages to decorate, mount photos, or journal. I also has 3 small pockets and 1 large enclosed pocket. Very easy and quick to make. I will be making a video on how to make this.
This is my latest project. This box card is an SVG that I purchased from SVG their designs!
This is my first mini album. It measures 6" x 6". I used my Bind-it-All to bind. I found inspiration from the YouTube channel My Sister's Scrapper. She does incredible work. The tabs peeking out are from Cricut cartridge 'Artbooking'.

Here is a side view. It has a ton of pockets!

This is a birthday card I made for my step-son. The bamboo was created with a Cricut embossing folder. I did a lot of inking with Tim Holtz Distress Inks - Walnut Stain. Inking cards is my favorite.

This little guy was created from an SVG for my grandson's 7th birthday invitations.

A grungy male birthday card using Tim Holtz Distress Inks and TH stamps. I made 2 of these cards in 45 minutes...a record for me. They are very easy to create and that will be another video in the future.

This is the second grungy male card I made using the same techniques and products as above.

Inside of the above card. I love the colors...remind me of Autumn.

This card was created using the Cricut cartridge 'Nifty Fifties' and the background was created using a Cricut embossing folder. A lot of fun...and my brother loved it. Inside there was a Route 66 sign.

This was my first project using vinyl. I loved how it turned out and learned so many lessons.
