Here are my projects:

CTMH Buzz & Bumble Layout by Wendy Kessler

I adjusted the left page to suit my photos.  I will also be using 4×6 flip flaps on each page to add more photos over the 4×6 pics.  I wasn’t sure about this Workshop Kit but I am so glad I changed my mind and bought it because I love my layouts!

Stephanie Layout by Wendy Kessler

Love this one for an 8×10 photo!  I stamped the entire background with the flowers.  I also eliminated the journaling box and moved the embellishments over to allow more room for the photo.

Wonderful Beautiful Day Layout by Wendy Kessler


If you look close you will notice that I flipped this page around 180 degrees.  I will admit it was an oops but it didn’t matter since I was using it as a 1-page layout so it didn’t need to match up with my first page.

Kraft Containers by Wendy Kessler

These containers were trickier than they should have been.  I would recommend using Liquid Glass for your adhesive.  It holds well and doesn’t take long to dry.  Make sure you plan it out before adhering the paper and do a double check.  The paper overlaps if you cut according to the directions and there is a seam on the container; you will want to make sure that these are somewhat close so you are left with a nice “front” to decorate.  If you want them to look like the picture, it will be easiest to glue the scallop piece and the large piece together first, then to the container since the scallop goes underneath but you want to make sure you leave enough room so that you don’t overlap onto the opening.  Tip: When inking, do not ink the ends that will overlap (if you ink it will draw attention to the seam).  I used these for Mother’s Day gifts.  They could work for teachers gifts or just about any occasion.

A mini album is the perfect way to use your remaining B&T Duos papers or to mix and match your favorites from multiple paper packets for a completely unique design.  This featured mini album uses stamped images from the My Acrylix Sightseer stamp set and all cuts are from the Cricut Artiste cartridge.  You will also see a collection of different papers that add color and variety to the book.  Watch the video that will teach you how to create your own!
