Create An Amazing mini-album for Valentines

I just set up mobile blogging, which is so cool... now I feel like I can stay in better touch with my customers!

Since Valentines is only 21 days away I thought I would share a mini-coaster album with you. 

It's easy to make so follow along...

This album was created for my beloved Scott "Top ten reasons "I LOVE YOU"All you need are some squared coasters, paper and embellishments.

Use a coaster to trace the shape onto the background paper.

Add some small die-cuts, torn paper and letters.  

Switch it up by using a variety of mediums; stamps, paint, bubble letters, etc.

Use mini-Brads to attach pieces of ribbon.

Rub on letters and a little bit of your own hand writing will personalize your gift.

Fold a heart in half to reveal a secret message inside.

Use a mini-folder to tuck some "special" coupons in.

Circle a word to stand out from a scrapbook news print of love words.

 Layer on the fun by using your throw sways from your dies. Stamp on messages and use a variety of alphabets.

Make a pocket to slip in a tag.

Stamp on transparency paper.

Use a puzzle piece and tie a ribbon around it.

Finish your album with an awesome quote.

Hello to all my wonderful customers!!!  It's been so long and I'm doing OK, trying to pick up the pieces from the lose of my beloved husband, Scott.  It's been a long tough journey that I'm still trying to understand.  One thing for sure that the children and I have to hold onto is the LOVE that was present and exchanged between our family.

For Scott is our hero!  He fought so long enduring so much from the treatments that we can say "Wow, what a man!!!  To put up with so much suffering in treatments, his act of LOVE will always be in our hearts!"

For me- I too endured much being there always by his side, loving him till the end.  When he passed away, we were alone holding hands as he took his last breathe, just like it should be!

The children- they to gave up so much of their life and it was down right hard to give up extra activities for lack of time or money that we just didn't have.  They were all present for his last twenty-four hours of life taking moments to let him know how each felt.

Rather beautiful in some ways!!!
You know  my little saying "It all begins with LOVE, I have added "and ends with Love!!!"

I've decided to spend my mornings being productive and getting back to what I love most, designing!!!  I should say I hope since I now have developed carpal tunnel in my right hand, we will see how much I can stand!

Watch for some summer sales coming soon!

~Love and I missed you all!!!

I can't believe Christmas is almost here!

Greetings from the Schwartz family!

I hope that all is well with you and your family!  It has been a very long time since I've posted, designed or interacted with any of my Paperthreads customers.  I really miss all of you!

Our life has changed drastically while continuing to care for my husband Scott.  He is on his fourth regimen of chemo, they are trying a new medicine to fight off the tumors that are growing.  It has been a challenge for us all but we are all so thankful for each day that we have with him.

I am so very grateful for the continual prayers!

My Christmas files are all 40 % off!  You can click on the link in the upper right corner to see if you could use a file or two to help you create some Christmas memories.  Have a wonderful Christmas!  ~ Carrie

Sneak Peek of new files...

I'm sorry that I left you all hanging! I didn't realize how busy this weekend could get when I posted to guess my next theme. Since Scott was feeling better we took advantage of being invited to some friends where we played corn throw and roasted marshmallows, then on Saturday we had some friends over and Sunday we took off to the park then the drive-in to see "Toy Story 3" with the weather so nice we had to take advantage of it.  On Monday we had a friend offer to help get some much needed work around the house.  Yep it was busier then I anticipated and we began the weekend with no plans.  

Here are the files:

"Center Stage"
In this file you will find some  curtains (that cut in three pieces) with two different sets of toppers, two sets of stage light cans and the spot light. The picture to your left and below are showing the valance styles of the curtains. 

The top picture shows a swag scalloped valance  where the picture to your right shows a more straight valance with scallops.  I created two sets so that you can use them according to your needs.  If you need more room then maybe the second valance will work better.  

Each file was created for a 12 X 12 page although for saving purposes I have shrunk them by 20%.

Pages using "Center Stage"

 Tamba, created the next two pages using some of the files found in the "Center Stage" package.  

She created this wonderful title page by cutting three velum over lapping them and placing her title it really makes for a classy page.

 Her she used the top spot light cans to add a special touch for another page.  

It looks so professional!

 "All the World's a Stage"

This is a fun file with musical notes, drama mask and the title
"All the World's a Stage".  

You can use all of the die-cuts in this or just one to add that special touch to your page.


Every stage needs a microphone!

This file come with the pieces to complete on microphone and a microphone with it's stand.

Once you've cut the pieces it's so easy to put together to create the page you want.

"Stage Set"

I just love the way this file came out! It was inspired by Tambra's title page. Although these lights can be set any where. Flip the lights upside down and you can direct the lighting from the floor. 

This file contains: three light cans, three spot lights (already angled for ease of placement), a microphone and stand and an audience. 

I was amazed at the response to the post when I sat down this morning to read and look at everyone's guess.  If you didn't have a chance to look the guesses where: gymnastics, circus, marching band, school orchestra, choir, magic, sports, band, ballerina, dance, Cirque, Nutcracker, theater, theatrical, mime, Ringling Bros. Circus, dancers, on stage, drama, film, talent show and American Idol.  Wow!  What great guesses since these do fit being performers in one way or another

Although the guesses where really good we have to stick with the original idea of my theme which was created for theater, stage, drama, choir but considering that dancers and talent shows are performed on the stage I will accept the those.  So I need a favor from you ladies if you could please (I've lost many emails when my computer went down) email me so I can send you one of the four files, in that email place in the subject "What's My Next Theme?" then in the body of the message tell me what file you want and the format that you need it in.  Ok so if your guess was one of the above please email me.  Here is a link to email Carrie's Creations

The drawing will be done this evening- since I need my helpers!  
Thank you for understanding, you are all so wonderful and thank you for playing!!!
