DIE & EMBOSSING FOLDER STORAGE

GOOD MORNING EVERYONE, JUST A QUICK POST ON HOW I HAVE BEEN STORING MY DIES AND EMBOSSING FOLDERS..I HAVE BEEN PLAYING AROUND WITH SEVERAL STORAGE OPTIONS OVER THE PAST COUPLE YEARS AND NEVER REALLY CAME UP WITH SOMETHING THAT WORKS FOR ME UNTIL NOW AND I LOVE IT.

THE FIRST PICTURE IS KIND OF LIKE MY DIE CUTTING STATION. FROM LEFT TO RIGHT I HAVE A PHOTO BOX WITH ALL MY BIGZ DIES, THEN THE SMALL BINDERS WITH FRAMELITS AND EMOSSING FOLDERS, THEN A BASKET WITH MY CUTTING TOOLS AND CUTTING PLATES AND LAST BUT NOT LEAST THE BIG KICK.die-storage-5

AS YOU CAN SEE FROM THE PICTURES BELOW I USED THE 1/2 SIZED BINDERS THAT HOLD THE 5 1/2 X 8 1/2 PAGES AND MAGNETIC VENT COVERS CUT DOWN TO FIT THE SIZE NEEDED.  ON EACH MAGNETIC PAGE I HAVE THE DIE SET AND THE LABELS FROM THE ORIGINAL PACKAGING IF I HAD IT. I LOVE HOW THIS IS WORKING OUT BECAUSE I CAN GET RID OF ALL THE ODD SIZE PACKAGING FROM THE MANUFACTURERS AND ALL MY DIES ARE IN ONE PLACE AND ALL I HAVE TO DO IS FLIP THROUGH THEM TO FIND WHAT I AM LOOKING FOR.

PRIMA DOLL TAG

GOOD MORNING EVERYONE AND HAPPY NEW YEAR.  I KNOW I HAVE MISSED THE LAST COUPLE WEEKS OF BLOG POST BUT I KIND OF LOST TRACK OF TIME ACROSS THE HOLIDAYS AND ACTUALLY BARELY SPENT VERY LITTLE TIME IN THE CRAFT ROOM.

SO HERE WE ARE IN THE NEW YEAR AND HAVE TONS OF IDEAS AND HOPE THAT EVERYONE HAS A CRAFTY 2017.

SO, TODAY I AM BRINGING YOU SOME TAGS THAT I CREATED FOR A MINI ALBUM SCRAPS SWAP. IT IS A PEARLS AND LACE INSPIRED TAG USING A JULIE NUTTING STAMP. SO HERE IS WHAT I CAME UP WITH.  FIRST I USED THE “VALENTINA” STAMP AND COLORED IT IN WITH MY PENCILS. THEN I STAMPED AGAIN ON SOME DESIGNER PAPER FOR THE DRESS, THEN I ADDED SOME LACE AND BLING AND FLOWERS AND BOW USING THE STAMPIN’ UP BOW BUILDER PUNCH, AND I JUST LOVE HOW THIS CAME OUT. HOPE MY SWAP PARTNERS LIKE IT AND I KNOW THERE WILL BE SOME MORE JULIE NUTTING STAMPS ADDED TO MY COLLECTION VERY SOON.

HAPPY CRAFTING

CHRISTMAS MINI KEEPSAKE BOX

CHRISTMAS IS COMING, CHRISTMAS IS COMING…. ARE YOU READY YET?  I’M NOT, SO MANY THINGS TO DO, SO LITTLE TIME….

wp-1480335930490.jpg

TODAY I AM SHARING A MINI ALBUM KEEPSAKE BOX THAT I CREATED FROM SCRATCH.  I THINK IT TURNED OUT PRETTY GOOD FOR MY FIRST TRY BUT DEFINITELY HAS ROOM TO IMPROVE.  FIRST I CREATED THE OUTSIDE ALBUM WHICH IS 10X10  AND DECORATED IT WITH AUTHENTIQUE VINTAGE CHRISTMAS PAPERS.  I HAD SUCH A HARD TIME DECIDING WHICH PAPERS TO USE FOR THE COVER BECAUSE I JUST LOVED THEM ALL SO MUCH….THEN TOPPED IT ALL OFF WITH SOME TULLE, HAND STRUNG BEAD SPRIGS, A GLITTERY SNOWFLAKE, FLOWERS AND A DIE CUT.  I REALLY LIKE HOW IT ALL COME TOGETHER…

INSIDE I CREATED 4 SEPARATE COMPARTMENTS (2 – 2X7, 1 – 2X2, 1 – 7X7).  IN THE LARGER COMPARTMENT I MADE A 6X6 MINI ALBUM WITH PULL OUT TABS AND SIMPLY ADDED A LITTLE DECORATION TO LEAVE PLENTY OF ROOM FOR THE RECEIVER TO HAVE PLENTY OF ROOM FOR PICTURES, JOURNALING AND KEEPSAKE PIECES.  THIS ALBUM IS GOING TO A SWAP PARTNER ON MINI ALBUM SCRAPS SO I FILLED THE REMAINDER OF THE BOXES WITH SOME RIBBON, DIE CUTS, CANDY, HANDMADE BOWS AND OTHER GOODIES.  HOPE THEY LIKE IT.

ENJOY AND HAPPY HOLIDAYS……

 

SWAP CENTRAL

SWAPS, SWAPS & MORE SWAPS,  THOUGHT I WOULD GIVE YOU A LITTLE PEAK AT SOME SWAPS I HAVE MAILED OUT FOR A FACEBOOK GROUP SWAP THAT I AM IN.

THE FIRST ONE WAS A CHRISTMAS DIE CUT SWAP. LAST MONTH WE DID JUST DIE CUTS THAT YOU COULD USE FOR PROJECTS AND THAT IS WHAT WE WERE DOING AGAIN BUT I THOUGHT I WOULD ASSEMBLE SOME THAT ARE READY TO USE.

wp-1478520740082.jpg

THEN THE 2ND GROUP WERE DOING A TAG SWAP AND YOU KNOW ME I CANTS JUST CUT OUT A TAG AND SEND IT.  I WANT TO GIVE THEM TAGS THAT ARE READY TO TIE ON TO ANY CHRISTMAS PACKAGE.

ITTY BITTY CHRISTMAS MINI

HAPPY THANKSGIVING EVERYONE. HOPE YOU HAVE A GREAT DAYS WITH FRIENDS, FAMILY AND LOTS OF GOOD FOOD. I KNOW I WILL.

CHRISTMAS IS COMING FASTER THAN YOU KNOW IT AND TODAY I AM SHARING A “ITTY BITTY MINI” FOR A SWAP I AM ATTENDING OVER ON MINI ALBUM SCRAPS. IT MEASURES 3.5″ X 4.5″ AND HAS 6 PAGES THAT FLIP UP FOR ADDITION ROOM.  HERE I HAVE DECORATED THE FRONT WITH SOME LITTLE PINECONES , A DOLLAR TREE SNOWFLAKE AND SOME MORE PINE NEEDLES FROM MY CONCORD & 9TH DIES.

HOP ON OVER TO MY YOUTUBE CHANNEL TO SEE THE VIDEO AND INSIDE PAGES.  BE KIND THOUGH I AM NOT VERY GOOD AT VIDEO’S YET, BUT I AM WORKING ON IT…..wp-1478085658083.jpg

BEADED ICICLE ORNAMENT

HELLO AGAIN.  HOPE EVERYONE IS HAVING A GOOD TIME PREPPING FOR THE HOLIDAYS.  I KNOW I AM RUNNING WAY BEHIND BUT AM STARTING TO GET INTO THE SWING OF THE HOLIDAY SEASON.  IT SEAMS LIKE IT SNUCK UP ON ME A LOT FASTER THAN LAST YEAR.

TODAY I AM SHARING ANOTHER SWAP THAT I AM ATTENDING OVER ON MINI ALBUM SCRAPS. IT IS THE BEADED ICICLE ORNAMENT THAT HAD TO INCLUDE A CLASP AT THE TOP AND GLASS BEADS AS WELL AS A CONTAINER TO PUT IT IN.  IT IS A LITTLE HARD TO SEE IN THESE PICTURES, BUT I WENT WITH A RED AND WHITE CANDY STRIP THEME AND AT THE BOTTOM A LARGE JINGLE BELL PAINTED TO LOOK LIKE SANTA. (DON’T WORRY I DIDN’T PAINT THEM, I FOUND THESE LITTLE CUTIES AT HOBBY LOBBY.) I DECORATED A JEWELRY BOX WITH SOME CHRISTMAS PAPER AND ADDED A BELLY BAND WITH A SPRAY USING MY CONCORD & 9TH AND SIMON SAYS STAMP DIES.  YOU REALLY GOT TO CHECK THEM OUT.

CHRISTMAS CARD 2016

OK,SO, IN MY CHRISTMAS MADNESS I DECIDED TO DO A LITTLE MASS PRODUCTION OF CHRISTMAS CARD FOR THIS YEAR.  BELOW YOU WILL SEE ALL OF THE PIECES DIE CUT AND READY TO GO FROM THE SIMON SAYS STAMP POINSETTIA PARADE DIES.

1ST I CUT OUT ALL THE CAR BASES AND STAMPED THEM. I BACKED THE INSIDE OF THE CARD WITH ANOTHER PIECES OF WHITE TO ADD STABILITY AND A BACKING TO GLUE THE POINSETTIAS.

2ND I CUT ALL OF THE PIECES IN RED AND GREEN, BUT DON’T WORRY NOTHING IS GOING TO WASTE AND WHAT A GREAT WAY TO STOCK UP ON FLOWER PARTS.  THE EXTRA RED LEAVES TO THE RIGHT END WILL BE PUT IN MY CONFETTI BOX FOR SHAKER CARDS, THE EXTRA GREEN FLOWERS WILL BE USED UNDER OTHER PAPER FLOWERS AS LEAVES. AND THE WHITE FLOWERS WILL BE ASSEMBLED AND SPONGED FOR MY FLOWER STASH.

wp-1477307218268.jpg

NOW FOR ASSEMBLY TIME. THE HARD PART WAS MATCHING WHAT LEAVES FIT INTO WHAT CUT.  BUT I FINALLY FIGURED IT OUT LIKE A PUZZLE. EACH OF THE COLORED PIECES ARE INLAID INTO THE CAR BASE AND I THINK IT IS SO PRETTY BUT YOU KNOW ME I CANNOT LEAVE WELL ENOUGH ALONE. I MAY ADD SOME RHINESTONES OR SPARKLIES OR SOMETHING TO THE FLOWER CENTERS. WE WILL SEE…..

1 CHRISTMAS CARD ASSEMBLED IN THE STACK AND 39 MORE TO GO.2016-christmas-card-complete

OH’ AND BY THE WAY I SEEN THIS IDEA ON PINTEREST…

OH’ CHRISTMAS TREE

wp-1477307218274.jpg

GOOD MORNING EVERYONE.  I KNOW IT IS STILL OCTOBER BUT I AM TRYING TO GET A SMALL JUMP ON CHRISTMAS THIS YEAR. MY SCHEDULE HAS BEEN SO CRAZY LATELY I DON’T FEEL LIKE I HAVE HAD A LOT OF TIME FOR PROJECTS, BUT LAST WEEKEND I KICKED IT INTO HIGH GEAR AND AM READY TO ROLL.

 

SOOOOOO, WITH THIS TERRIBLE PICTURE I AM SHARING A MINI CHRISTMAS TREE I CREATED WITH THE NEW “CONCORD & 9TH TAKE A BOUGH DIE SET.”  I HAVE NEVER PURCHASE ANY DIES FROM THIS COMPANY AND I HAVE TO SAY I AM VERY IMPRESSED WITH THE DETAIL AND THE WAY YOU GET A CLEAN CUT EVERY TIME.  YOU NEED TO GO CHECK THEM OUT.  AFTER ASSEMBLING THE TREE I ADDED SOME SEQUINS, AND MINI TREE TRIM AND SPRAYED HE WHOLE TREE WITH GLIMMER MIST FOR A LITTLE SPARKLE.  I LIKE HOW THIS CAME TOGETHER AND WILL DEFINITELY CREATING MORE WITH THESE DIES.

HALLOWEEN TREATS

GOOD MORNING ALL. THOUGHT I WOULD SHARE SOME OF THE SWEET TREATS I PUT TOGETHER TO SELL AT “THE FOXFIRE FESTIVAL” THAT I WAS IN ON OCTOBER 1, 2016.  I LOVE DOING CRAFTS FAIRS AND FESTIVALS AND EVEN IF I AM NOT IN THEM I GO TO THEM JUST TO SEE WHAT EVERYONE HAS GOING ON….NO MATTER WHAT GOODS I BRING TO THE FESTIVAL I ALWAYS TRY TO HAVE SOME SWEET TREATS AND THEY ALWAYS SEEM TO BE BIG SELLERS NO MATTER WHAT I HAVE.  SORRY I ONLY HAVE 1 PICTURE OF THE SWEET TREATS.  SOMEHOW I DID TAKE THE PICTURES OF THE POISON VILES AND CANDY CORN PUMPKINS BEFORE THEY WERE ALL GONE BUT I SOMEHOW DELETED THEM FROM MY CAMERA BEFORE I GOT THEM LOADED.  😦

  1. CANDY KITS:  THESE WERE SO EASY (ONCE I FOUND THE 8 DIFFERENT CANDIES THAT WOULD FIT IN THE WHOLES.) . I GOT THE LITTLE BOX AT THE DOLLAR TREE AND FILLED THEM WITH AN ASSORTMENT OF SWEET TREATS.

    2. CANDY CORN PUMPKINS:  ALSO A EASY TREAT.  USED MY LARGE BOW DIE FROM STAMPIN UP TO MAKE THE PUMPKIN AND A STAR PUNCH AND PIPE CLEANERS FOR THE STEM. FILLED THE LITTLE ZIPLOCK BAGS WITH FALL MIX AND INSERTED IN THE PUMPKIN. (TIP…PLACE THE CANDY INSIDE BEFORE CLOSING UP THE PUMPKIN, TRUST ME IT’S EASIER).

    3.  POISON VILES:  AGAIN VERY SIMPLE.  PICKED UP THESE MARTHA STEWART TEST TUBE LAST YEAR AT MICHEAL’S ON CLEARANCE AFTER HALLOWEEN AND ADDED CANDY.

NOW SEE. HALLOWEEN TREATS DON’T HAVE TO BE HARD TO BE CREATIVE AND DIFFERENT.  YOU JUST HAVE TO USE YOUR IMAGINATION.

BARE BONES

HELLO ALL. TODAY I AM SHARING SOMETHING I AM TRYING OUT NEW THIS YEAR.  I MADE UP A BUNCH OF THE MINI ALBUM BASES IN 3 STYLES TO TRY SELLING AT FOXFIRE FESTIVAL.  BELOW YOU WILL SEE THE 3 ALBUMS BASICALLY FINISHED TO SHOW AS EXAMPLES.  WHEN THE CUSTOMER PURCHASES THE ALBUM IT WILL BE COMPLETELY BLANK IN A KRAFT, BLACK OR WHITE FINISH AND THEY CAN ADD WHATEVER DESIGNER PAPER AND EMBELLISHMENTS THEY WOULD LIKE, BUT ALL OF THE HARD WORK IS DONE.  IT WILL COME WITH INSTRUCTIONS AS WELL AS MEASUREMENTS FOR COMPLETING THE ALBUM.  THE PAGE FLAPS ARE CUT, MEASURED AND SCORED AS WELL AS ANY POCKET THAT MAY BE INCLUDED. YOU JUST NEED TO ADD ADHESIVE AND PLACE WHERE DESIRED.

  1. BASIC 5X7 MINI ALBUM: THIS ALBUM HAS 9 POCKET PAGES WITH SLIDE OUTS, 4 PAGE FLAPS AND 4 POCKETS.

2. GATEFOLD MINI: THIS ONE FEATURES 2 POCKET PAGES WITH PULL OUTS (ONE ON EACH SPINE) AS WELL AS 4 WATERFALL PAGES. AS YOU CAN SEE THERE IS TONS OF SPACE FOR PICTURES HERE.

3. WATERFALL MINI:  THIS ONE IT TALL AND SKINNY.  IT HAS 12 WATERFALL PAGES AND A POCKET FOR MORE STORAGE.  THIS ONE MAKES A GREAT SCHOOL ALBUM OR BABY’S 1ST YEAR MINI.

OH AND I ALMOST FORGOT. THIS IS NOT A MINI BUT STILL BARE BONES.  WELL I GUESS IT COULD BE A MINI BUT CAN ALSO BE A VINTAGE STYLE JOURNAL OR RECIPE BOOK.  THE POSSIBILITIES ARE ENDLESS.  THE COVER IS OF HEAVY PAPER STOCK AND THE INSIDE MIX MEDIA PAGES ARE EACH COFFEE STAINED FOR THAT VINTAGE FEEL.  INSIDE THERE IS LIGHT WEIGHT PAPER, VELLUM, GLASSINE, CARDSTOCK, ENVELOPES AND DOILIES ALL HANDSTICHED TOGETHER.

COMPOSITION COOKBOOK

wp-1473247330140.jpg

GOOD MORNING EVERYONE. HOPE YOU ARE ALL ENJOYING THIS BEAUTIFUL FALL MORNING.  HERE IN THE NORTH GEORGIA MOUNTAINS IT IS MY FAVORITE TIME OF YEAR, RIGHT BEHIND WINTER.  THE COOL CRISP MORNINGS AND WARM AFTERNOONS, THE COLORFUL TREES AND ALL THE FESTIVALS.  YEAH!!!!

SO TODAY I AM SHARING A SWAP THAT I ENTERED ON MINI ALBUM SCRAPS.  WE HAD TO MAKE A TRUE RECIPE BOOK WITH A COMPOSITION BOOK.  I COVERED THE FRONT WITH GRAPHIC 45 PAPERS AND CUT OUTS, ON THE INSIDE I CREATED 4 DIVIDERS WITH POCKETS TO TUCK EXTRA RECIPES.  CANT WAIT TO SEE WHAT MY SWAP PARTNER SEND BACK.  I JUST LOVE SWAPPING…..:).

HERE IS THE SWAP I RECEIVED IN RETURN.  I ALWAYS LOVE SEEING OTHER PEOPLES STYLE OF CRAFTING. IT’S SO FUN…

 

GRADUATION IS COMING

SO HERE I FIND MYSELF A LITTLE SENTIMENTAL THAT MY OLDEST CHILD IS A SENIOR IN HIGH SCHOOL THIS YEAR (MAN WHERE HAS TIME GONE) AND WHAT A BETTER WAY TO KEEP THE MEMORIES THAN THIS CAP KEEPSAKE BOX…..  COMPLETELY MADE FROM SCRATCH I CREATED A REALLY STURDY ROUND BASE AND THEN FORMED UP THE BOX.  THE LID FITS PERFECTLY AND HAS A LITTLE SLANT TO IS AS YOU SEE ABOVE SO SITTING ON THE SHELF YOU CAN SEE THE TOP…

NO MY ONLY PROBLEM IS TO DECIDE WHETHER TO KEEP IT OR SELL IT AT MY UPCOMING CRAFT SHOW????  I GUESS I CAN ALWAYS MAKE ANOTHER ONE IF I DECIDE TO SELL IT BECAUSE GRADUATION IS STILL MONTHS AWAY AND MAYBE I AM GETTING A LITTLE AHEAD OF THE GAME?????

WHO KNOWS…..

OLD SCHOOL

wp-1472814512940.jpgwp-1473247329271.jpgwp-1472814512927.jpg

OH HOW I LOVE GRAPHIC 45 PAPER COLLECTIONS.  HERE I HAVE USED “ABC PRIMER” AND LOVE HOW THIS MINI CAME TOGETHER.  THIS ALBUM IS ROUGHLY 5 1/2 X 6 1/2 AND HAS A CRAFTEX SPINE FOR DURABILITY. ON THE INSIDE PULL OUT TABS I HAVE USED MANILA FILE FOLDERS CUT DOWN TO FIT AND COVERED WITH DECORATIVE PAPER ON THE FRONT AND LEFT BLANK ON THE BACK FOR JOURNALING. OH YEAH AND I ALMOST FORGOT THE BEST PART THE PAGES ARE DECORATED CARDSTOCK ON THE FRONT AND CHALKBOARD PAPER ON THE BACK SO YOU CAN WRITE WITH A CHALK MARKER FOR A AUTHENTIC FEEL.

AGAIN,    LOVE, LOVE, LOVE THIS ALBUM…….

 

HAVE A GREAT DAY AND REMEMBER TO ALWAYS DOCUMENT YOU MEMORIES.

PRECIOUS MEMORIES MINI

wp-1470616561675.jpg

1ST OF ALL SORRY FOR THE TERRIBLE PICTURE, THAT IS A SKILL I MUST WORK ON TO PERFECT.

EVERY SHOW I DO EVERYONE ALWAYS ASKED WHY DO I HAVE BABY GIRL MINI’S BUT NO BABY BOY MINI’S.  THE TRUTH IS I AM MORE DRAWN TO THE PINK AND PASTEL COLORS AND FRILLY LACES AND PRETTY FLOWERS, BUT I DO SOMETIMES MAKE A BABY BOY ALBUM, THEY JUST SELL OUT REALLY FAST.  SO HERE IS ONE I RECENTLY PUT TOGETHER.  I USED A BASE BOOK I PURCHASED AT ONE OF THE BIG BOX STORES A WHILE BACK.  IT IS 6X6 AND THE FRONT OF EACH PAGE IS COVERED WITH CANVAS.  SO IT WAS PRETTY EASY TO COME UP WITH A GREAT ALBUM USING GRAPHIC 45 PRECIOUS MEMORIES PAPER PAD.  THERE ARE STILL SOME PINKS IN THE PAPER BUT I USED MOSTLY THE BLUE PATTERS AND THINK IT IS SO CUTE.

A PLACE IN TIME

GOOD MORNING EVERYONE.  TODAY I AM SHARING AN ALTERED PIECE THAT I PICKED UP AT THE SCRAPBOOK EXPO IN ATLANTA LAST MONTH.

FIRST OF I HAVE TO TELL YOU THAT IS THE FIRST TIME I HAVE HAD A CHANCE TO GO TO THE SCRAPBOOK EXPO AND IT WAS GREAT, BUT A LITTLE OVERWHELMING. THERE WAS SO MUCH TO LOOK AT AND SO MANY PRETTY THINGS TO ADMIRE. JUST WALKING AROUND AND LOOKING AT THE SAMPLE CARDS AND PROJECTS DISPLAYED MADE ME WANT TO RUN HOME AND TRY NEW IDEAS.  THIS IS DEFINITELY SOMETHING I WILL DO AGAIN, AND I CANT WAIT….

SO ON TO THE PROJECT. I BOUGHT THIS PIECES FROM SA CRAFTERS BOOTH.  IT IS THE WOOD POCKET WATCH LAYER SHADOW BOX AND IF YOU HAVE NEVER BEEN TO HER SHOP HEAD ON OVER NOW, http://www.sacrafters.com, SHE HAS SOME GREAT STUFF.  SO AS YOU CAN SEE I LEFT THE WOOD NATURAL AND ADDED SOME PAPER AND EMBELLISHMENTS FOR A VINTAGE LITTLE FRAME. THIS WOULD LOOK GREAT JUST SITTING ON A TABLE. NOW I JUST HAVE TO FIGURE OUT A WAY TO MAKE IT STAND.  ANY IDEAS?????

ALTERED BREAKFAST TRAY

SO TODAY I AM SHARING A SERVING TREY THAT I PICKED UP AT THE THRIFT STORE FOR A COUPLE BUCKS. IT WAS PRETTY PLAIN…. SO I PAINTED IT WITH SOME COPPER SPRAY PAINT AND DECORATED IT WITH LACE, VINTAGE DIE CUTS AND  PLACE TO PUT A PICTURE.  ON THE OUTSIDE I ADDED SOME COPPER COLOR SEAM BINDING, FLOWERS AND BLING.  I LOVE HOW IT TURNED OUT.  IT WOULD LOOK GREAT ON A COFFEE TABLE OR ANTIQUE DRESSER WITH SOME VINTAGE PICTURES IN IT. 

MASON JAR RECIPE ALBUM

TODAY I BRING YOU ANOTHER GREAT MINI ALBUM MADE FROM A DIEMOND DIE.  LOVE THE SIZE OF THIS ALBUM, SMALL ENOUGH TO BE A MINI BUT BIG ENOUGH TO HOLD ALL THOSE GREAT MEMORIES OF COOKING WITH GRANDMA.  THIS WOULD BE A GREAT PLACE TO STORE SOME OLD RECIPES AND PICS OF COOKS.  CHECK IT OUT HERE….. 

BABY GIRL MINI

LOVE THIS ONESIE DIE FROM DIEMOND DIES.  IN THE PAST I HAVE MADE ONESIE ALBUMS BUT THEY HAVE ALL BEEN CUT BY HAND, BUT NOT ANYMORE.  THIS IS A GREAT DIE ABOUT 8″ TALL.  THIS IS THE FIRST ONE AND I CAN SEE MANY MORE TO COME IN THE FUTURE. NEXT IS A BOY ALBUM……CHECK BACK SOON.
